Letter: Bannon departure might help Trump

To the editor:

I always thought of Steve Bannon as Screwtape and Donald Trump as Wormwood — the former teaching the apprentice the finer points of the dark arts of populist politics.

Now that Screwtape has been banished from the kingdom, perhaps reasonable voices will have a greater influence on Wormwood as he continues to learn on the job.
