    What a campaigner in Trump. The most significant thing I learned from Trump about Strange is how tall he is. Puerto Rico decimated, NK running wild and Trump talks about how tall Strange is. Nothing matters to Trump long enough for him to remember something to tweet about. Anything else is too taxing.

    trump supported Strange with the same enthiasm as he did when he publicly stated Obama was born in the US.

    I watched Steve Bannon on Fox, and he fully supported Moore, yet seemed to smile with asked why trump supported Strange. Got to wonder if Bannon said to trump: "If you want to help Moore win, then support Strange. Everyone who hates you will vote for Moore. We already know your base is going to vote for Moore, so lets sucker those who hate you into voting for the canidate you REALLY support"

    My bet is that in a few days, Trump will fully support Moore with the typical BS "He won fair and square, so I now support Moore 110%"

    Bannon added a theatrical fare to his comment. I haven't seen him interview before so I don't know his mannerisms . Is he a showman?

    He is not a showman like trump. trump is a showman to feed his own ego. Like s sleezy used car salesman, it all about closing the deal; tell them anything they want to hear to buy the worst car on the lot.

    Bannon is a hardcore fringe radical that truly believes the US system of government needs to be completely overhauled. He hates republicans more than democrats mainly because he truly believes that behind the scenes republicans leaders are plotting to undermine trump. Bannon is not a showman, but is extremely articulate. Have you ever seen interviews with Charles Manson? Manson is F'ing crazy\dangerous to the core, but comes across as a very compelling figure. Bannon is the same way. If you listen to him, he comes across as highly intelligent, extremely articulate, and knows history. Bannon is almost the anti-trump it terms of what motivates him. What they share is the common connection to the same base of people. As a team, trump is the frontman\showman who just wants win at any cost (to others); lying to everyone is just part of his showmanship, and Bannon is the brains. Bannon wasn't fired by trump. Bannon convinced trump that he could do more damage outside of the WH than within. John Kelly is not stopping Bannon from having regular chats with trump, anytime, anywhere.

    Tks. I found Brannon and Breitbart radical rediculous so never watched him one time. Amazing how subjective radicals validate their position by constant religion of their self developed view points. Their monetary success attributes to people hungry for blame.

    Election is in December. Last Democrat to win the seat became a Republican shortly after being elected. Possible that being a Democrat in Alabama is less than ideal ? Glad there's between little and No open mindedness in the great state of Alabama. Once you have all of the answers... why continue thinking.

    Alabama is still living in 1800 the same with this guy; an total "god" freak who also beliefs Obama was not born here and hates gays etc. Pence must love him.

    Keep this in mind about what I said a while back. There are crusaders, people that believe in causes. There are fighters, people that have no problem resorting to violence. A great cause is not needed to organize a fight. Few properly placed inflammatory words and there is a fight. No great cause or ideology just emotions. And when the fight starts nobody is safe. Opposition or each other, when a fight starts it is a problem. The multitude of unhappy lower class are a powder keg. Radical left or right they will fight. It is troubling to here and see the attitude of troubled people answered with budget concerns.

    The only thing this win will wind up doing is convince fringe candidates to jump into House and Senate races, especially in states where the primary is the main hurdle. In the long run it will turn the Senate into the equivalent of the House where radicalism rules the day and compromise is a four letter word.

    Is this the conservative version of the 60s or a political fade that make about 33% feel better?

    Fox news is preaching that we are seeing the same thing that happened in the 60s. In the 60s and into the 70s, the country went the a major liberal upheaval in nearly aspect of society that resulted in significant changes in laws and how government operated.

    The trump insiders like Bannon, Hannity, and others on Fox news truly believe trump is the leader of a conservative movement that is as big, if not bigger, than the civil rights movement of the 60s. They are predicting the downfall of both parties as we know them today, and the overhaul of government and politics. In their view, in 10-15 years, the US will be dramatically changed just like how things changed during the 60s. They see trump as their messiah of the movement, and the those who oppose trump are akin to those who thought the civil rights movement was just a bunch militant\radical liberals that were irrelevant and had no political influence. Today the trump\bannon think-tank is predicting the same kind 60's uprising that will, more-or-less, overthrow our current form of (liberal) government, and replace it with it their new brand of conservationism.

    Yes Jared, the lunatic fringe, like the tea baggers who refused to pass a budget and debt ceiling from years past, like the ones who shut down government.

    Elections coming up, count on more far right wing nut jobs to fill vacancies from long term GOP'ers.
