Breitbart is owned by CEO Larry Solov along with founder Andrew Breitbart’s widow, Susie Breitbart, and the Mercers, Robert and Rebekah (father and daughter). All apparently are Jewish, but how this plays into their politics has not been examined by anyone (yet). Bannon is hired help (executive chair).
I am highly suspicious of the way Bannon loudly proclaims he supports the President, yet anyone who reads BB for the last few months finds that it is against the President. Bannon and Breitbart supported Ted Cruz for at least 15 months before their candidate was eliminated at the convention. Bannon and Conway and Mercers came on board the Trump train mid August 2016, so they were there for approx two and a half months only. However, it was important as fresh faces, particularly, in my opinion, KellyAnn’s TV interviews, and the computing power of the Mercers helped get Trump elected.
Those people who say Bannon was vital to Trump from the perspective of creating policy are talking through their ignorant hats. The policies were already in place thought up by Trump. Bannon supported Cruz’s policies. I always thought it rather cheeky that Bannon had a list of Trump’s policies up on his wall, supposedly to keep Pres Trump from straying off them.
The way Bannon has been creating this fictitious character of himself being the creator of Trump’s policies worries me about the man. “Methinks thou dost protest too much”.
