Matt Drudge doesn’t shoot for subtlety when it comes to Steve Bannon.
Me thinks you disike him. Been noticing that for awhile.

You thought it was on before? Boy, were you wrong:
No wonder schizophrenic Steve Bannon has been walking around with a small army of bodyguards…

What prompted that? Safe bet that this had something to do with it:
More from the Guardian:
Donald Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon has described the Trump Tower meeting between the president’s son and a group of Russians during the 2016 election campaign as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic”, according to an explosive new book seen by the Guardian.
Bannon, speaking to author Michael Wolff, warned that the investigation into alleged collusion with the Kremlin will focus on money laundering and predicted: “They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV.”
Soon after [the June 2016 meeting involving Trump’s son Donald Jr, son-in-law Jared Kushner, then campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower in New York], Wolff writes, Bannon remarked mockingly: “The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor – with no lawyers. They didn’t have any lawyers.
“Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad shit, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately.”
Right now, that’s Drudge’s only tweet on the subject.
Now things are getting exciting!
