OK, so what is the Trump/Bannon dust up really about?

Is this a clever scheme to bait and poison Herr Mueller and the Progs?  Or is this personal?

And does this -

- indicate a battening of the hatches either way?

I suspect yes on both, but am interested in other considerations.

I have no idea what's really going on, but I am a bit disappointed to see Trump and Bannon at each other's throats, if it's genuine.

  Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.   And if they're really good friends have a public argument and see what shakes out.  I think Bannon is about to do some really dirty work and the POTUS is going to need distance from it.

Tuned in to his radio show this AM but he was silent and none of the callers mentioned it. Probably screened out. Not like him at all

Milo echoed Pan's line - sad to see Trump & Bannon at odds.  That's it.  Nobody seems to know anything.

I'm kind of the burn it all down variety too...reform doesn't work, it isn't seriously taken up nor goes anywhere near as far the rare mements it is taken up.  And I am not getting any younger here!

And Edmund doesn't know where this is going yet either.  But he is right about this hurting the short term as it takes the eye off the ball of effing over the Progs and E-GOP goons.

I just hope if the latter is the price, the payoff is something yuge.   ;)

It's always ego.  Bannon rode the wave to the top and flamed out, and his ego won't allow him to just let it go.

Listened to todays show and nothing. All about Daca and how Trump is going to cave on the wall. Was a good show and I believe he will cave.

 Time will tell I have great hope that he won't.

I agree. If this is a ruse it's high-stakes poker. Unless someone pops up and says, "Gotcha!" pretty soon Bannon's rep and his future is in the toilet.

If it is just ego then this poor bastard has a huge problem...you don't pick fights you can't win.  Interestingly though, nobody in the E-GOP is gleefully chortling about this pissing contest...either they are staying out of it intentionally...or they sense a trap.  I don't give them much credit for smarts, so must be the latter...Pubbies are almost exclusively motivated by fear.

Trump has had a hard time picking cabinet members.  (Flynn.  Sessions)  I assume he's better at business.

The way I understand it is that Bannon rode the wave in, got close to power and thought it was his.  He became increasingly obnoxious 'til Trump said: You're fired!

If Trump backs out on the wall the left will fill the streets in a world of gloat.  Trump would be reviled by everyone.

I predict this will be too much for some members of the right and it will get messy because at that point the right has nothing to lose.

Heh, nice try...nobody seems to buy it though.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-01-07/steve-bannon-apologizes-don-jr-patriot

If he meant to slam only Manafort...well, that didn't come out at the time...

Poor bastard.

I still have no idea if all this was orchestrated ahead of time though...can't shake that thought.

Meanwhile, WikiLeaks put this Wolff Hate-Trump dreck out on the web...and the typical chickenshat Amazonians pulled the plug on comments for this dreck.

Methinks F-chuck is merely setting the stage for he D-MC meme "yeah, we said there are some issues with facts...but this that and especially this is Holy Writ!"...

Watch for it!

In I'm sure related news...the Commie News Nitwits promote Jim Acosta to full-feathered Chieftain of I Hate Trump Commissariat.

All collectivists go "Woo Woo Woo"!
