Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner are at odds. Bannon is Trump’s chief strategist, but Kushner now has the ear of the president. On this week’s Saturday Night Live, Alec Baldwin returned as Trump to use an ‘Apprentice’-style elimination to choose his top advisor.
“Jared, Steve, standing before me are my two top advisors. I only have one photo in my hand. That’s right, tonight is elimination night,” said Trump. “There’s been a lot of drama in the house, and that’s ok, but one of you must go. Now, who gets to stay? Jared, you take the most beautiful photos. Steve, you take the worst photos I’ve ever seen in my life. I’m not joking: when I see a photo of you, it makes me want to puke.”
“Jared, I’ve sent you all around the world to represent me, and nobody’s heard you speak,” he said. “You’re like a little Jewish Amelie. And Steve, you may be smart, but I once walked in on you eating a live pig in the Roosevelt Room.”
Trump ultimately picked Kushner, and Bannon got the loser’s treatment. “Take him back to hell… down to the basement with Kellyanne.”
