Bannon stands alone

Steve Bannon - for one brief, glorious day - unified what had been a fractured, combative and disunified conservative media community (such as it is.) Since the rise of Donald Trump's candidacy in late 2015, the reporters, pundits and thought leaders have been bickering, sniping and debating with each other about the very future of our political movement and the ideological purity of the publications we work for.

Further, Trump asks the secondary question that begs to be answered: "What in hell was James Comey doing with his investigation and how could Clinton and Abedin be exonerated by the former FBI Director?"
