Seems the media has been in hysterics over “evil geniuses” for a lot longer than most people realize. For weeks they have been pushing Bannon as this dark shadow behind the curtain … much like they did with Obama and Jarrett, and Bush and Rove.
Nearly every White House is said by media/opponents to have an evil genius who's really in charge. Bush 43:Rove Obama:Jarrett Trump:Bannon.

Think about it.
The media always needs some angle to push so people will actually read what they write. It’s far more interesting to read about AN EVIL GENIUS than a guy making decisions based on his campaign promises and the will of the people.
Psh, process and civics – SO boring.

This is true, Jarrett really only took heat from conservative media, while Rove and clearly Bannon are getting it from all sides.

Ha! Or was it a bunny?

@brithume Too bad there's no genius in charge of the media.

Too bad indeed.

Fair point. But what about evil genius?
@brithume I would like Brit to be my evil genius if I'm POTUS one day.
