Reince Priebus and Stephen Bannon: A love story

    Reince Priebus and Stephen Bannon definitely get along. Everything you have heard about their relationship, says Priebus, is wrong. If you have heard that they are slowly engaged in a battle to the death, that is definitely not true. That is their, uh, belligerent chemistry. They are like brothers (Kim Jong Un and Kim Jong Nam), just regular brothers.

    They are the best of friends, like Frog and Toad, or even Bert and Ernie, if you catch them on the right evening. They talk all night until they fall asleep, holding hands. This is what they told New York Magazine's Olivia Nuzzi:

    "We talk a lot, pretty much all day long," Priebus said. "And then we communicate at night -"

    "Until we fall asleep," Bannon interjected with a laugh.

    Priebus cut in, "Until somebody falls asleep ... You fell asleep last night."

    "I did," Bannon said.

    "I think, like, a quarter to 11," Priebus added.
