Otequay of the Ayday

An extended QOTD today.

"Washington is built to destroy Republican presidents and right now the road to victory runs right through Steve Bannon's office.

Giving him up won't change the hostility to the president. It won't make the forces arrayed against him suddenly support enforcement of immigration laws or an America First national security policy. It won't make them give up on crony capitalism or the administrative state. And Jared and Ivanka won't get the Camelot coverage they're being promised.

And those making the promises? Their lips drip honey and their speech is smoother than oil, but in the end they are bitter as wormwood and their path leads to destruction. The more likely scenario is that if those calling for Bannon's head get it they will target the Kushners next. That's because the battle isn't Bannon v. Kushner as some in the press would have us believe, it's Washington v. Trump."

-Chris Buskirk at American Greatness.

I guess we'll have to rely on the President's deep devotion to his foundational principles, then.

But seriously, folks, I think he has lost on both sides of this. Bringing him in, he was exposed to harsh criticism from moderates. Now, throwing him under the bus, he's alienating both true believers and loyalists.

Did you see "Our Margaret's" rather kind take? Does Steve Bannon Have Something to Offer?
