    I just love this,

    Trump’s bizarre hairdo finally explained

    President Trump’s bizarre hairdo is the result of scalp-reduction �*surgery, careful styling held in place by strong hairspray — and too much cheap dye, according to a new book.

    Daughter Ivanka Trump often makes fun of her dad’s comb-over to friends and delights in explaining how the crazy coiffure comes together, according to “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”

    “She often described the mechanics behind it to friends: an absolutely clean pate — a contained island after scalp-reduction �*surgery — surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the center and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray,” journalist Michael Wolff writes in the book, out Jan. 9

    “The color, she would point out to comical effect, was from a product called Just for Men — the longer it was left on, the darker it got. Impatience resulted in Trump’s orange-blond hair color.”

    “Bolton’s mustache is a problem,” snorted Bannon. “Trump doesn’t think he looks the part. You know Bolton is an acquired taste.”

    “Well, he got in trouble because he got in a fight in a hotel one night and chased some woman.”

    “If I told Trump that,” Bannon said slyly, “he might have the job.”

    Bannon was curiously able to embrace Trump while at the same time suggesting he did not take him entirely seriously. Great numbers of people, he believed, were suddenly receptive to a new message — the world needs borders — and Trump had become the platform for that message.

    “Does he get it?” asked Ailes suddenly, looking intently at Bannon. Did Trump get where history had put him?

    Bannon took a sip of water. “He gets it,” he said, after hesitating for perhaps a beat too long. “Or he gets what he gets.”

    Pivoting from Trump himself, Bannon plunged on with the Trump agenda. “Day one we’re moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. Netanyahu’s all-in. Sheldon” — Adelson, the casino billionaire and far-right Israel defender — “is all-in. We know where we’re heading on this … Let Jordan take the West Bank, let Egypt take Gaza. Let them deal with it. Or sink trying.”

    “Where’s Donald on this?” asked Ailes, the clear implication being that Bannon was far out ahead of his benefactor.

    “He’s totally onboard.”

    “I wouldn’t give Donald too much to think about,” said an amused Ailes.

    Bannon snorted. “Too much, too little — doesn’t necessarily change things.”

    “What has he gotten himself into with the Russians?” pressed Ailes.

    “Mostly,” said Bannon, “he went to Russia and he thought he was going to meet Putin. But Putin couldn’t give a **** about him. So he’s kept trying.”

    Again, as though setting the issue of Trump aside — merely a large and peculiar presence to both be thankful for and to have to abide — Bannon, in the role he had conceived for himself, the auteur of the Trump presidency, charged forward. The real enemy, he said, was China. China was the first front in a new Cold War.

    “China’s everything. Nothing else matters. We don’t get China right, we don’t get anything right. This whole thing is very simple. China is where Nazi Germany was in 1929 to 1930. The Chinese, like the Germans, are the most rational people in the world, until they’re not. And they’re gonna flip like Germany in the ’30s. You’re going to have a hypernationalist state, and once that happens, you can’t put the genie back in the bottle.”

    “Donald might not be Nixon in China,” said Ailes, deadpan.

    Bannon smiled. “Bannon in China,” he said, with both remarkable grandiosity and wry self-deprecation.

    “How’s the kid?” asked Ailes, referring to Kushner.

    “He’s my partner,” said Bannon, his tone suggesting that if he felt otherwise, he was nevertheless determined to stay on message.

    “He’s had a lot of lunches with Rupert,” said a dubious Ailes.

    “In fact,” said Bannon, “I could use your help here.” He then spent several minutes trying to recruit Ailes to help kneecap Murdoch. Since his ouster from Fox over allegations of sexual harassment, Ailes had become only more bitter toward Murdoch. Now Murdoch was frequently jawboning the president-elect and encouraging him toward Establishment moderation. Bannon wanted Ailes to suggest to Trump, a man whose many neuroses included a horror of senility, that Murdoch might be losing it.
    and that's the crack jack

    tude, I honestly don't know if this will last 2 weeks. But if it doesn't, it will be because Trump has done something spectacularly crazy. Or several things...

    With the book released on Friday, journalists have had the weekend to read it and do a little initial research themselves. Next week will be high drama I suspect as the reaction comes in

    Gosh. I wish we had a Wolff sitting in on Brexit but I don't see it happening for a number of reasons.

    The President's lawyers have since served Mr Bannon with a cease-and-desist notice accusing him of defaming the president.

    I think the whole Bannon-Trump thing as a new entertainment venture. The Odd Couple played out on the world stage to distract everyone from what is going on with Congress and the FBI investigation.
    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.

    I've considered this as well. If it is then they've reached a new low regarding personal integrity.

    I told a friend, "One, I would never hire someone as crazy as Bannon, and if I did, I sure wouldn't fire him!"

    My friend replied, "Oh, he didn't hire him. He just showed up."
