Now we have this from NYT:
Last week, as Donald J. Trump endured one of the most tumultuous stretches of his presidential campaign, a few longtime allies in New York conservative circles met for dinner and a drink. As the evening progressed, the conversation turned to an inevitable topic: What would it take to give Mr. Trump his best shot at winning?
A few days later, one of the guests, Stephen K. Bannon, the executive chairman of Breitbart News, would become Mr. Trump’s campaign chief in a sudden shake-up. But it was a guest without a formal role in the campaign, a conservative philanthropist named Rebekah Mercer, who has now become one of its most potent forces.
Mr. Bannon’s ascension on Wednesday — urged on Mr. Trump by Ms. Mercer, among others — shows how a cadre of strategists, “super PACs” and political organizations quietly nurtured by her family have emerged to play a pivotal role in Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign.
As I reported yesterday, the Mercer family donated $2 million to super warmonger neocon John R. Bolton’s super PAC. Not good.
I spoke yesterday with someone who knows Bannon. The first thing out of his mouth to me was "Trump has won." He considers Bannon that shrewd. He will keep Trump looking "presidential" and will know exactly how to frame Trump for a November 8l victory.
The big problem with this: Bolton may end up with a key position in a Trump administration.
