Bannon’s criticism of Defense Secretary, McMaster backfires

by Adedotun Michael

With the renowned news site Breitbart waging a continuous campaign against National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, the campaign seems to wreck the most damage to an unsuspecting official: Steve BANNON, President Trump’s chief strategist.

A Wall Street Journal editorial earlier this week accused Bannon of exploiting the right-wing media to hunt his foes, thereby bringing his loyalty to the president to question and imposing the cause for White House dysfunction on his shoulders.

The criticism of the defense Secretary has put Bannon in an awkward position with his new boss, general John Kelly, the chief of staff who is a staunch supporter of his longtime friend – McMaster, a longtime friend and fellow general.

McMaster, after evicting Bannon from the National Security Council principals’ committee, has refused to speak to Bannon in weeks over their fiasco.

It should be noted that Bannon aforetime has been suspected of orchestrating stories against his colleagues in his past spell at Breibart.

General Kelly has warned staff that he won’t tolerate the infighting and careless anonymous comments to the press that incubated the tenure of his predecessor Reince Priebus.

Kurt Bardella, a former Breitbart spokesperson said, “Fair or not, common sense would dictate that Steve Bannon has reach and influence and communication with these alt-right platforms whose editorial bent more often than not, aligns with Steve’s agenda,”.

“I think [the stories] gave ammunition to his detractors internally, to either ID him or his people as part of the problem.”

Bannon has leaned into himself in recent weeks following the departure of his ally Priebus and was left behind in Washington while the president and other top staffs have moved to the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J.
