It is freightening, on its own, to have an unstable, malignant narcissist as President of the United States. But far more concerning is that he is really not calling the shots.
Occasionally, Trump will talk from the heart about Arnold Schwartzenegger’s poor performance of Celebrity Apprentice and about the decay of inner cities. But the real stuff coming out of his mouth is not his own.
And that is even more freightening!
Stephen Bannon, the so-called Chief Strategist, is the Acting President. Trump is terribly unsettling, but Bannon is a dark and very dangerous figure behind the curtain and pulling most strings. A white nationalist who has been charged with domestic abuse and accused by his wife of being Anti-Semetic, his goal is to crush all that is dear in America.
Trump has clearly passed to the mantel to him. Very likely, Bannon has something significant on Trump. One can only guess what that is.
Bannon is seldom seen in public, but if you look closely you will always see him in the third or fourth row of most public events, sitting between his chief lackeys – Michael Flynn and Kellyanne Conway. Flynn is National Security Officer who previously was fired from the Army and is filled with rage, and Conway is a former Blueberry Princess pageant winner and an expert in coining Alternative Facts and Fake News.
Bannon and Company are America’s new leaders. Watching Trump is a distraction.
