Reading the Right Wing Media So You Don’t Have To

I don’t read it either, but, thankfully, Nancy LeTourneau of the Washington Monthly does. In Right Wing Media on the Bannon vs Priebus Power Struggle, she describes how Breitbart and NewsMax—obviously spoon fed by Steve Bannon—are depicting the chaos in the White House as a power struggle between the “GOP establishment” and the True Trumpistas.

In wingnut land, it isn’t the “intelligence community” that is Trump’s enemy, nor is it “the media.” The enemy is the “establishment” in the form of Mike Pence and Reince Pribus. Pence and Pribus are the people responsible for the tragic loss of that great patriot Mike Flynn.

How long will it take the Mad King to figure out that Mike Pence is waiting for hm to screw up so badly, and so undeniably, that Mike Pence becomes president?

Aardvark is taking bets on how long it will take before Trump denounces Pence as a traitor. A month? Two weeks? A couple of days?
