Steve Bannon did not get all dressed up on Tuesday for his big European event. He still had on his grumpy-uncle uniform, the same crinkled khakis he wore while looming over the President’s shoulder in the Oval Office last year.
But the former chief strategist to Donald Trump still looked better in person, or at least more commanding, under the spotlights on the stage in Zurich, Switzerland. The crowd adored him. They had paid good money to see him in the flesh, to feel what one of them called his “charisma,” and another, beaming in the massive line to get through the door, called Bannon’s “really rough style.”
