"Darth Vader" Is Brains Behind Puppet Trump Immigration Chaos

Breitbart Bigot Steve Bannon, who wrote portions of Trump's dystopian inauguration speech and is Trump's major Lie House adviser, has become Trump's foreign policy chief. Self-styled "Darth Vader," Bannon is the cause of the intended chaos surrounding Trump's unconstitutional executive order on immigration. Like Trump, Bannon has made his dictatorial plans clear for all to see. Like Trump, too few believed him:

I'm a Leninist,” Bannon proudly proclaimed. “Lenin,” he answered, “wanted to destroy the state, and that's my goal too."
