G.O.P. Establishment Declares Open Season on a Weakened Bannon So now the Republican establishment is officially at war with Trump's chief supporter and strategist, Steve Bannon. They are attempting to not only cut off Bannon's money, but drive a wedge between him and Trump. Ha, good luck with that. Trump loves all of his supporters, no matter how toxic they might be. Bannon's personality and modus operandi aligns perfectly with Trump's own methods of governing. While Bannon may look like a drunk, homeless person hanging out in a mall parking lot with Roy Moore, he is highly loved by Trump and mightly responsible for Trump's being elected. Trumpsters should quickly engage the enemies of Bannon, who are also Trump's enemies and nip this misguided effort in the bud. Bigly!
