Yesterday, as Steve Bannon struck his match to burn down Washington and burned himself down instead, Donald Trump, Jr. tweeted this:
I have a number of good friends who worked for Andrew Breitbart and his website. When Andrew died and Steve took over, things deteriorated. Just like with Donald Trump, Bannon stood on Breitbart's shoulders to advance himself and now does so with Mercer money, or at least did. He was petty and mean. The horror stories are legion.
Matt Drudge calls Bannon schizophrenic. I have had others who have worked with him on issues call him bipolar, willing to turn his mood on a dime for no apparent reason. The reality is it takes a particular form of megalomania to be the primary source on a book savaging the man who made you a household name.
To quote Donald Trump, Jr., "Steve is not a strategist, he is an opportunist." Could not have said it better.
