Steve Bannon As Napoleon Bonaparte

July 15, 2017

Good Lord!

Steve Bannon, the White House chief strategist, owns an oil painting of himself dressed as Napoleon Bonaparte – and it was given to him by Nigel Farage, it has emerged.

The peculiar revelation, published in New York magazine, comes from an upcoming book on the former Breitbart News head’s political rise and his at-times fractious relationship with Donald Trump.

According to the author Joshua Green, the painting replicates the famous portrait of Napoleon in his study at the Tuileries palace, but with Bannon in place of the emperor.

While no images of Bannon’s version have yet been made public, speculative Twitter users have had fun photoshopping the White House adviser’s head on to the body of the 19th century French ruler.

In that case can this be far behind?
