Tara Palmeri: Bannon Could Turn Breitbart Against Trump and Damage Him

‘And at the end of the day, I think Steve knows and Trump knows they need each other’

PALMERI: "They want to get their message across, they tend to speak to him on television because they know he's watching. I've heard from many aides that Trump does have a salty mouth and he's used that foul language not just on Paul Manafort but on Steve Bannon himself. He's undressed him in front of aides as well. He's done this to Reince Priebus. He has a very direct way of speaking to his staff and Steve Bannon has the same sort of style as well. At the end of the day aides say they feel they have to manage Trump in some ways and the only way to plant an idea is to say it through the media or to make it seem like his idea which is very typical when you're dealing with someone who tends to think they have the best ideas. But Trump does rely on Steve Bannon. He carries the torch for his base. He has the heart of the people that he's supposed to be delivering his campaign promises for. And at the end of the day, I think Steve knows and Trump knows they need each other and Steve actually does need Steve and he could turn the entire Breitbart apparatus on Trump and that could be damaging to him."
