What “Fire and Fury” Teaches Us

“Fire and Fury,” Michael Wolff’s new book, made sure that the New Year started with a roar and not a whimper. While President Trump is chafing under the media’s coverage of a very negative portrayal of the White House, Stephen Bannon ran for the nearest fallout shelter, letting regret pave […]

“Fire and Fury” Causes Bannon to Seek Shelter

Even though the lines of communication have thawed a little between North and South Korea, President Donald J. Trump isn’t deviating much from his usual tone against the rogue authoritarian state (I guess when you’ve been blogging long enough, you start to phrase things in a quasi-journalistic way, and ignore […]

North Korea: Nuclear State With Higher Ambitions?

  Mr. Bannon is on a collision course with Judge Judy.¬†¬†Following former White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon’s “inflammatory” comments concerning Trump Jr and his participation in the 2016 Trump Tower meeting, which recently surfaced in a soon-to-be-published book, Trump’s personal lawyer sent a cease-and-desist order to the President’s newest […]

Bannon Lost His Mind After Giving Trump a Brain

Look at that stern glare. I’m shaking in my pantaloons. Anyway, Steve Bannon is a curious man. Is he particularly complex? I don’t get that sense, but you have to work with what the media and the personalities that they focus on give you. A new book by Michael Wolff […]

Bannon Calls out Treasonous Trump Jr. and Supports FBI

Sorry for disappearing yesterday (as I don’t want to disappoint my legions). 2018. The expectations seem fairly high, and are centered, justifiably or not, on the Trump administration and the various domestic and international crises attached to it, and the tweets. Oh **** the tweets! A CNN article sums up […]
