Bannon Planning "#War" with "Democrat White House"?

Seems like it.

I've heard that, strangely enough, Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon were allies a lot of the time (and, I guess, enemies some of the time).

If you're wondering who Bannon and Priebus could possibly have in common as rivals of sufficient enough stature to cause them to team up -- well, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump and their various Democrat allies in the White House.

I've heard that Scaramucci's hiring was arranged by Jared and Ivanka specifically to get Spicer, Pirebus, and Bannon fired (and serve as an ally and promoter of Kushner and Ivanka). Well, Scaramucci didn't last long, but Spicer, Priebus, and Bannon are now in fact gone.

I think this might explain the rumblings about the "Democrat White House" -- allies of Bannon seem to think that Jared and Ivanka have now cleared most rivals and now are more firmly in control, and will be advising Trump in a Democrat/progressive direction.

Of course, this also coincides with John Kelly's appointment as Chief of Staff. This might have been his call, too. There are a lot of feuding factions, it seems, in the Trump White House, and maybe he just decided to eject someone on one side of it. Maybe out of ideological opposition to Bannon, maybe just to choose one side to win so that there'd be an end to the warring.

Oh: I should mention that Bannon's recent interview with the American Prospect might have been the final straw, but that seems more likely to be the act of a man who already knew he was being pushed out. So I don't see that as a causal.
