Tsar Donald and His Mad Monk

I wish this were a parable.
Steve Bannon makes Donald Trump dance.
Tsar Donald the Simple
After a week of signing royal decrees he barely, if at all, understood, a bored and somewhat depressed Tsar Donald was allowed to relax Sunday evening watching cartoons. Around him, the nation was roiled by a constitutional crisis of his making.

The Mad Monk, Steve Bannon
Behind the scenes, a crude, foul smelling reprobate was the true power behind the throne.
The real president.
Bannon manipulated the Tsar like the puppet he is.

Among his many outrages, Bannon deleted any reference to Jewish victims in a Holocaust remembrance and then, lest there be any misunderstanding, let it be known that the deletion was a deliberate snub of the Jewish people.

He had the director of National Intelligence and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff removed from the National Security Council to make room for his double-wide butt.

But the Mad Monk saved the worst for his attack on another religion, Islam. This attack left people with valid passports and valid, approved, visas stranded in detention in airports. It separated families and caused real human suffering. And when federal judges ordered the detained released an entire co-equal branch of government was simply ignored.

The Russians finally rid themselves of the simpleton Tsar Nicholas and the Mad Monk Rasputin but it was too late to prevent a brutal civil war and an even more brutal dictatorship.
