White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon has a painting of himself as French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, according to a New York Magazine report. The painting of Bannon as the famous French leader was reportedly given to Bannon by Nigel Farage, a former leader of the UK Independence party who has written for Breitbart, a conservative news website that Bannon once ran. "On his office wall hung an oil painting of Bannon dressed as Napoleon in his study at the Tuileries, done in the style of Jacques-Louis David's famous neoclassical painting -- a gift from Nigel Farage," the magazine reported.

Just read this same thing. My thought was Wow. Maybe you do this for a joke, I kind of get that but in this case it is really more of a WTF...

Bannon Has a Painting of Himself as Napoleon? Who doesn't? And in my painting I have really big hands and more shiny medals than Bannon. And it's been appraised to be worth a lot more money than Bannon's. Now that I have to take down my fake Time Magazine covers from my golf resorts, I'm having copies of this portrait hung up instead. I'm a secure well-adjusted human being.

I have a picture of myself as a member of the Star Trek TNG crew with the full cast.

It's pretty sweet.

If there's enough interest and you ask nicely maybe he'll have prints made so you can have one too.

He also has one of himself as a boozed up zombie from The Walking Dead.

Wait a minute, that one is a photograph of himself...

Since they could not destroy the actual Obama while he was President maybe the White Nationals (who Bannon represents) are still looking for that ever elusive Waterloo so they can try and destroy the memory of Obama.

Most all-right goobers suffer from "little man syndrome" this just supports the stereotype.

Let's continue this Napoleon fantasy by exiling Steve-O to some island. How about Plum Island?
