It's looking like Steve Bannen is becoming the 2nd most powerful/influential person in the country (next to Trump). Those familiar with Breitbart who are not solidly to the right have every reason to be worried. I had thought it hyperbole in November and December when left-leaners were warning Armageddon is on the horizon. I still consider that to be hyperbole, but to be afraid is legit in my opinion.It might still be hyperbole, but now that we have seen a disastrous first 6 days in office, are you willing to take that chance?
20 months from now it will be September, 2018 and the mid-term campaigns will be well underway. Given how typically enamored voters are with their own district's members of Congress, I am dubious of the Dems chances to make the kind of statement needed to send a message that will be heard by this president and his advisors. Sadly, the nation will need to be in free fall for an anti-Trump mandate to occur in 2018,
I believe Trump has not yet lost any of his supporters in this first week, but with each unsettling turn of events, the country will become less secure and more dangerously divided. I don't think it's completely clear yet where this is heading. But increasing Bannen's power is a worrisome sign in my opinion.
