Steve Bannon Rises From The Grave

Hold me closer, Tiny Hander.

The Hill:

President Trump‘s top advisers plan to set up a “war room” unit to combat negative reports resulting from the ongoing probe into possible ties between Trump’s campaign and Russia, Reuters reported Friday.

White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner will be involved in the new messaging effort, which also aims to push Trump’s policy agenda and schedule more rallies with supporters, according to Reuters.

President Trump‘s top advisers plan to set up a “war room” unit to combat negative reports resulting from the ongoing probe into possible ties between Trump’s campaign and Russia, Reuters reported Friday.

White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner will be involved in the new messaging effort, which also aims to push Trump’s policy agenda and schedule more rallies with supporters, according to Reuters.

Kushner and Bannon will work together to step up the White House’s strategic messaging. Reuters reports that Trump’s former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, is also expected to be part of the messaging operation.

OK, clearly this story is already outdated now that Kushner is a person of interest, I’m sure he will not be part of it. So that leaves Evil Genius Bannon stroking his very white cat, right? Oh wait: no cat, that’s Lewandowski, who was fired and replaced by Bannon.

Brilliant plan. What could go wrong?

So let’s think on that for a moment and ask ourselves both what a war room does and also what Steve Bannon does. A war room is set up to refute accusation and to be a generator of the counter-narrative. It becomes the go-to place for apparatchiks and where the pundits and reporters will go to get official statements and other reactions to the upcoming turdnado of Russian corruption with the mango-hued shitgibbon.

What did Bannon do during the campaign whenever Trump shot off his weirdly rectangular pie hole? Bannon pushed fake news and distractions via Breitbart and other GOP agitprop distribution channels. But Bannon is now separated from Brietbart, Fox is in disarray, and allegedly Trump’s Greatest Fan Sean Hannity is returning next week but probably with clipped wings. Petunia and Pals? Yeah, that’s about it.

You can argue that Bannon’s misdirection worked on Wingnuttia (“Bill Clinton is a rapist!”), but it didn’t work on the general population. Clinton won the popular vote, Trump won Wisconsin.

The media smells blood in the water. I don’t think Bannon yelling “Squirrel” is going to work, but it will make Trump feel like he’s swinging back, and that’s pretty much all that matters to him.

Wingnuttia, the New Confederacy, and Y’all Qaeda will of course look for the squirrel, but they would do that anyway.

Popcorn, anyone?

    This worries me since you can bet these ‘rallies’ will be attended by the 25% of the 25% who have all probably taken loyalty oaths.

    The image of Bannon having to defend the Orange Julius at 3am after a midnight Twatter-spolsion is just to much to deal with.
