Breitbartification of Trump Complete: Trumpbart Now (includes video of the late Andrew Beitbart on Trump)

The news that Steve Bannon is riding to the rescue of the Trump campaign is just too perfect. It reminds me of a scene from The Simpsons set in the not too distant future where Marge and Homer are watching TV in bed. Marge turns to Homer and says, “You know, FOX turned into a hardcore sex channel so gradually, I didn’t even notice.”
A year or two ago one could still see water between Breitbartland and Trumptasia. Now the two phantasmagorical land masses have completely merged. (Note: I think it is a nigh-upon slanderous crime that they still use Andrew’s name for what Breitbart has become. He would hate it. They should have changed the name to Bannon News a long time ago.)
Hear What the late Andrew Breitbart thinks of Trump
Anyway, from the Washington Post:
Bannon, in phone calls and meetings, has been urging Trump for months to not mount a fall campaign that makes Republican donors and officials comfortable, the aides said. Instead, Bannon has been telling Trump to run more fully as an outsider and an unabashed nationalist.
Trump has listened intently to Bannon and agreed with him, believing that voters will ultimately want a presidential candidate who represents disruption more than a candidate with polished appeal, the aides said.
