    "Trumpism Is a Racket, and Steve Bannon Knew It"

    "In the most recent Senate Intelligence report on Russian campaign interference, a footnote quotes Steve Bannon, the former chief executive of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, disparaging Trump’s oldest son. Bannon said he thought “very highly” of Donald Trump Jr., but also called him “a guy who believes everything on Breitbart is true.”

    "We Build the Wall was run as a nonprofit, and assured donors that “100 percent of funds raised” would go toward wall construction. Some donors, said the indictment, wrote to Kolfage that “they did not have a lot of money and were skeptical of online fund-raising campaigns,” but they were “giving what they could” because they trusted his promises."

    "Lots of Trumpworld figures have been involved with We Build the Wall. Kris Kobach, Kansas politician close to Trump, is listed as the group’s general counsel, and last year told The New York Times it had the president’s blessing. Also on the advisory board is the Blackwater founder and close Trump ally Erik Prince; Curt Schilling, the ex-Red Sox pitcher Trump encouraged to run for Congress; and Robert Spalding, former senior director for strategic planning on Trump’s National Security Council."

    "Donald Trump Jr. praised We Build the Wall at a 2019 event for the group: “This is private enterprise at its finest. Doing it better, faster, cheaper than anything else, and what you guys are doing is pretty amazing.”

    "The truth is that We Build the Wall is what Trumpist private enterprise looks like — a gaudy scam that monetizes grievance."

    Bannon was Trump's Valerie Jarrett. Nothing more, nothing less.

    As noted, "you're either a predator or a mark" in Trump's world, which fully explains how numerous top forty DJ's are now millionaires telling conservatives exactly what they want to hear, they are such each prey, appears Bannon once again proved it true

    Facebook proves that to millions every single day. They sell you to the highest bidders. Literally. So does Google. If you've ever had any experience running a social media marketing campaign.

    When someone tries to narrow your thinking to 2 options and you believe them, you are the 3rd option.

    Of course. It’s why the gop has had to purge its intelectual leaders like George Will. You can’t have smart people hanging around while you try to dupe the rubes.
