Challenging pope on multiple fronts, Bannon wants to train gladiators

Francis and Trump, peas in a pod  (As to style and unconventionality — not, obviously, in goals and positions taken.)

Finally, Bannon said he’s long been struck by a certain similarity between his former boss, Trump, and the pontiff.

“He and Trump are at the same level,” Bannon said. “He breaks news every day, and he’s also very sophisticated. He knows exactly how to drop the headline. They’re very similar … they’re honey-badgers.”

Francis, Bannon said, “is a fighter, and I have a lot of admiration for a lot of things.”

I blogged about this two years ago and three-plus years ago.
