Erick Erickson
So after Trump rode the escalator in 2015, I penned a post on why he was a relevant candidate we shouldn't dismiss. He sent me a note of thanks. He had printed out the piece, wrote on it in sharpie, and then had his secretary PDF it to me.

I got another from him a bit later after I wrote about polling. Then I uninvited him from the RedState Gathering and got savaged by his campaign.

A few months later I wrote that I agreed with him on something and he reached out again with a note saying he was glad we were on the same team again.

In February I penned that there was no way I could support a man like that for President whether he won the nomination or not. It was not the greatest career move and certainly limited my national TV and radio exposure. But…

…even after that I got at least one note from him when I wrote something positive about him. I tweet all this to say this: do not believe for a minute that he is actually burning bridges with Bannon. If he finds Bannon useful, and he does, they'll keep talking

and they'll do so even if John Kelly and others demand that the President stop talking to him. In fact, when others demand Trump stop something, he is most likely to continue with gusto to show he is in charge.

And to be clear for sake of timeline the February was February 2016 after the RedState Gathering in August of 2015.

Trump may not be through with Bannon, but Bannon is smart enough to know when to abandon ship. Don't underestimate Bannon's intelligence and book and street smarts.

We’ve always known trump will use anyone to get his way...and he’ll clearly stab anyone in the back the second it’s expedient. Why congress and Nunes don’t realize this is frankly shocking.

Like trump says this is about what he feels will make America great! If destroying bannon makes it better he will do it, doubt trump cares at all about bannon!

How can you miss the point of your own story so badly? He won't reach out to Bannon "if he finds Bannon useful." He'll reach out to Bannon if Bannon strokes his ego. That's the only thing that matters to him. It shines through in every single thing he says and does.

And you can bet Bannon knows this. He’s no political genius but he’s smarter than Trump

You were behind as I understand. Can you understand why many of us We The People do not trust anyone associated with that way of thinking?
