The universal daddy

Steve Bannon was terrified that the women will take over way back in February.

In the new paperback edition of his book “Devil’s Bargain,” journalist Joshua Green writes that Bannon, the former Trump campaign chairman and White House chief strategist, “thought Oprah might represent an existential threat to Trump’s presidency if she decided to campaign for Democrats in 2018.”

But, Green wrote, Bannon believes the most powerful backlash to Trump is bigger than Winfrey, who’s been the subject of much 2020 speculation. He’s most concerned by the women-led wave of liberal, anti-Trump activism, fueled by the #MeToo movement.

Yes, very scary, much scarier than the activism of scruffy racist wife-beaters and gilded smirking pussy-grabbers.

“The anti-patriarchy movement is going to undo ten thousand years of recorded history,” Bannon told Green. “You watch. The time has come. Women are gonna take charge of society. And they couldn’t juxtapose a better villain than Trump. He is the patriarch.”

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh no. No, chum, he’s not. Not in any way. He’s too slack, too soft, too weird-looking, too floppy separating fakey gilded hair-looking – I mean come on who looks more patriarchal, Trump or Kelly? A bizarro-world comb-over that matches the gilt in his apartment is not a patriarchal accessory. Plus he’s too dim, too talkative, too inept, too freakish – too confused, too incompetent, too bad-tempered, too out of control – too laughable. He’s a lot of things, but The Patriarch is not one of them.

Bannon made these comments after watching Winfrey deliverĀ an impassioned speech at the 2018 Golden Globes, in which she lauded the #MeToo movement and delivered a call to arms against racial and gender-based injustice in front of an audience dressed in black to recognize victims of sexual misconduct.

Well, you know…that may be an advantage women have over men. The criteria for being a matriarch are a bit looser than those for being a patriarch. One doesn’t have to resemble a ramrod to be a matriarch.
