It might seem like a stupid idea for Donald Trump to bring his virulently anti-Muslim white supremacist buddy Steve Bannon with him to Saudi Arabia, but if the Trump administration has one thing nailed down it’s stupid ideas.
A clip of Bannon surrounded by Arab (and perhaps more importantly, Muslim) men and he absolutely looks like he’s about to wet himself.

If you ever needed to know the true emotions behind the Right’s hatred of anything and anyone that is browner than a stick of classroom chalk, you only need observe Steve Bannon when he’s surrounded by people of a faith he regularly attacks.
This is what pure, irrational, undiluted fear looks like — and it is the emotion that is currently leading our country, if you can call what we have “leadership.”
