Bannon, the rumpled adviser who never tires of calling reporters âthe opposition party,â lasted not quite three and a half minutes after their awkward opening handshake before making sure everyone in the room knew that he was the scrappy one and the former Republican National Committee chairman was the softy. Priebus had just dismissed news reports about their rivalry as all just a big âmisconceptionâ and had embarked on a chummy description of their work day just a stumble away from the Oval Office â âwe share an office suite together, weâre basically together from 6:30 in the morning until about 11 oâclock at nightâ â when Bannon cut in.
