Trump puts Bannon on security council, dropping joint chiefs

quote [ Mr Bannon, formerly the head of the populist right-wing, Breitbart News website, will join high-level discussions about national security.
The order was signed on Saturday.
The director of national intelligence and the joint chiefs will attend when discussions pertain to their areas. ]

Not much else to this story, but it sure seems like one of the more ominous things TrumpCo has done this week...

Were I writing this as a novel, I'd have to ask, "to what end?"

"Revenge" seems to be the only thing I can think of. These men are all fairly-to-obscenely successful, so I can only think that their primary motivator is to somehow hurt people they think have wronged them. What's worse, they appear to want to hurt whole segments of the population based on myths they've constructed about "the other" and how "they" have been trying to do bad things to them all their lives or some story like that.

I say that because there's no way the U.S. would stay prosperous and a great place to live, even for the rich, if these guys start wrecking everything. They would've lived in nice houses and everything no matter what, but this way they get to see the skies lit by constant fires, I guess?

It pathological. If there's some other endgame apart from maybe a little more short-term monetary gain, I'm not sure what it is. The only other option is real mental illness, and we've got the Joker in the White House.
