The Puppeteer


"He said, with ironic relish, that Mr. Trump was elected by a surge of support from “the working-class hobbits and deplorables.” "

Steve Bannon, shown and quoted above in the New York Times, is a close adviser to President Trump. Bannon is a known white supremacist who cut his racist teeth guiding, a leading fake news website. 

The quote gives us an insight into the heart and mind of the "ideas man" that is putting words into Trump's mouth.

I think many have noticed that Trump's demeanor is largely shaped by who it is that he last speaks to. After his meeting with President Obama after the election. Trump was noticeably warm and cordial with Obama, contrary to his bleatings from the campaign trail.

With the neo-nazi beliefs of his trusted advisor Bannon in his ear, we will surely see ideas and policies that would make Goebbels nod with approval.
