Zaphod Beeblebrox is a character from the Douglas Adams story, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. He was the president of the galaxy and a hedonistic, irresponsible narcissist whose only role was to create confusion and distract attention away from those who were actually in power. And this is our cue for Steve Bannon. He’s an interesting guy, who’s recently getting a lot of attention for his behind-the-scenes maneuvering and controversial views. It does seem that Mr. Bannon has been quite busy lately and Mr. Trump is not at all amused at hints that Bannon is the real power behind the throne. Still, if one were looking for a narcissistic, controversial figure–one who could attract attention to himself by claiming that the worldwide news media is purposely not reporting terrorist attacks for some undisclosed nefarious purpose (they actually do report these) or that the federal government will stop funding California–it would be hard to find a better Zaphod for President Bannon than our own Mr. Donald.
