His populism wasn’t fake enough.
Bolshevik! He really is a Leninist.
Anticipating Trump’s “I fired him from Breitbart” tweet.
But Trump keeps saying it’s a Fake Book and Fake News?
Bannon keeps flubbing it. At least he flubs it spectacularly.
Denny’s is hiring.
That cracks me up for some reason. I mean it is a real book, like Dianetics is a real book. The title of my next Fake Book: Trump and Language: What a Clusterfuck.
But does the squatty position really work like that?
What Akimbo said, too, but I also think it has to do with the crazed demand for loyalty that those crazed white supremacists demand of their soldiers.
When, if ever, will Trump’s staff finally understand that they will all end up like that? Unless they leave first, which I have read many intend to do after Jan. 20.
Except for the kitchen part (as I recall he expired on the pavement while he was taking a late-night ramble in Westwood for nebulous reasons) I’m not going to dispute the rest based on my observations and stories I heard from mutual acquaintances.
Andrew Breitbart, for all that he railed against and lied about Hollywood liberals as his original schtick, really wanted to be a regular in the Hollywood party scene. The dude was thirsty for it. Coke is a big part of that scene, and while I’m not sure if it drew him to the scene or vice-versa it played a part in things. Especially since the guy was a chaos addict and in bad physical shape, which doesn’t make for a good combination with marching powder.
Bannon shares a lot of similarities with his predecessor (the chaos addiction, the poor physical fitness, the politics), but while he also hated Hollywood liberals – especially the subset that the term codes for – he never involved himself with them for any other reason but to make money after his creative efforts were laughed out of the room. Perhaps that’s why he became a boozehound instead of a cokehead.
As for the successor at the Web site, it’ll have to be a Bannon type who knows his place when it comes to his betters.
Guys can you even begin to imagine what an unemployed Bannon looks like?
Bravo! This was excellent!
Unlike Bannon’s screenplays. But then, he’ll have plenty of time to work on those now.
i wouldn’t be so excited. Jake Tapper is reporting that a source close to Bannon says that he had to decide whether to focus on Breitbart, or politics, and he chose politics. he’s totally going to run against trump.
Steve, you brought this on yourself.
Now you know how it feels to be God. Or maybe Satan.
I think Charles Laughton is a better comparison for Bannon.
I hope so, but I’m more concerned that if he chose politics it’ll be about identifying and fostering alt-right candidates who’ll know their place relative to the Mercers and their ilk.
