Read an Excerpt

F***ing unbelievable, Steve Bannon thought, shaking his head in disgust as the “Breaking News” alert raced across the television screens in the Trump Tower war room. It was 7:22 p.m. on Election Night, the polls hadn’t even closed, and yet here was CNN’s Jim Acosta breathlessly touting a damning quote he’d pried out of an anonymous senior Trump adviser: “It will take a miracle for us to win.”

Many of us understood Trump. But it was a challenge to understand how Hillary went from a good Senator and successful and admired secretary of state to a someone we all questioned. This book explains it. It clarifies a lot as well as the still present danger of Steve Bannon and Breitbart.

This was an interesting stroll through the relationship of Donald Trump and Steve Bannon. It read anecdotally while also appearing to be factually-based. It seems to show both men as very narrow minded and arrogant; I came away feeling as if Bannon just had his Andy Warhol moment and clearer thinkers will prevail.

A pretty good book and definitely very informative about the making of Bannon, the making of Trump, and how they both became involved in the campaign. However, I think the title and cover do not match the content; Trump and Bannon do not seem to have that much or that significant of a relationship based on this book. Bannon was not somehow the war partner of Trump, more because Trump has no partners than anything else. The book does not claim that this is true, which I think is a good thing, but the cover may make it seem as though that is the argument. It is not.

Green reveals the true force and agenda behind Trump and this administration. Which is to replace our democracy and discredit democracy as a viable firm of government. His point would have been made without getting into so many weeds of the campaign.

Quickly churned out political books become irelevant quickly. This is a case in point, as Bannon is already gone. There may be a book about him but this is not it.

A good senator and admired sec of state are you out now y mind. Hillary Clinton is one of the most dangerous people in the eworld.
