Live from CPAC, it?s Bannon and Priebus
Polished White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and pugnacious chief presidential strategist Steve Bannon took their strained buddy routine to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Thursday, reminiscing about Donald Trump?s election victory, promising revolutionary change in Washington, denying their ongoing West Wing power struggle and ? naturally ? bashing the news media. Bannon, the rumpled adviser who never tires of calling reporters ?the opposition party,? lasted not quite three and a half minutes after their awkward opening handshake before making sure everyone in the room knew that he was the scrappy one and the former Republican National Committee chairman was the softy. Priebus had just dismissed news reports about their rivalry as all just a big ?misconception? and had embarked on a chummy description of their work day just a stumble away from the Oval Office ? ?we share an office suite together, we?re basically together from 6:30 in the morning until about 11 o?clock at night? ? when Bannon cut in.
