Let’s set aside for a moment whether or not you “agree” with disheveled rich Archie Bunker figure Steve Bannon. Let’s focus for a moment on the fact that: Steve Bannon, you are not living in reality, my friend!
I hope you appreciated your recent introduction to the future leadership of the Republican Party this past week. It happened in Charlottesville, Virginia, where hundreds of neo-Nazis and white nationalists marched under the banner of “uniting the right.”
