Trump Responds To Bannon Trash Talk – LOST His JOB and HIS MIND

The response from President Trump to the release of negative comments by Steve Bannon was swift and hard-hitting, with Trump saying Bannon lost his mind when he lost his job.

President Trump defended his son and son-in-law from attacks by his former strategist Steve Bannon in the typical Trump fashion, hitting back harder against the former insider who has now, it seems safe to say, torched every bridge he had to the Trump administration.

He may be endearing himself to the left with recent comments appearing in a new book, Fire and Fury, in which he described the 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between Don Jr., Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, Natalia Veselnitskaya and others as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.”

Bannon also told the author, Michael Wolff, that “They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV.”

President Trump responded with a written statement on the comments, his relationship with Bannon, previous and current, and the mental condition of his former strategist. Trump wrote:

Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind. Steve was a staffer who worked for me after I had already won the nomination by defeating seventeen candidates, often described as the most talented field ever assembled in the Republican party.

Now that he is on his own, Steve is learning that winning isn’t as easy as I make it look. Steve had very little to do with our historic victory, which was delivered by the forgotten men and women of this country. Yet Steve had everything to do with the loss of a Senate seat in Alabama held for more than thirty years by Republicans. Steve doesn’t represent my base—he’s only in it for himself.

Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was. It is the only thing he does well. Steve was rarely in a one-on-one meeting with me and only pretends to have had influence to fool a few people with no access and no clue, whom he helped write phony books.

We have many great Republican members of Congress and candidates who are very supportive of the Make America Great Again agenda. Like me, they love the United States of America and are helping to finally take our country back and build it up, rather than simply seeking to burn it all down.”

Two questions arise out of this unseemly mess. Why invite the author into the White House in the first place and why is anyone surprised by the result from a guy who writes regularly for the libtards at USA Today and The Hollywood Reporter? They should expect anti-Trump gossip and hype, the very sort of totally unnecessary self-inflicted wound they are now receiving.

  1. Unless there is something going on that we don’t know about, as outlined by QAnon, and Jeff Sessions is just pretending to be A.W.O.L., I’m not at all impressed with the people surrounding Trump .. mostly globalist establishment lawyers and Goldman-Sachs. No, Bannon was not responsible for the Alabama Senate loss. McConnell set the stage for it, and Trump didn’t help by his premature negative comments about Moore and earlier support of Luther Strange.

  2. Two questions arise out of this unseemly mess………… Yes.

    I’m hoping this is what has been called 3D chess. This is what turns me off on Trump. His seemingly ease of embracing bad players, and turning on loyal friends. I may be mis-remembering, but he was not winning until Bannon came on board. I think Cruz may have been pulling away from him, and he had not yet won the nomination.

    Also it was not Bannon who lost in Alabama, it was McConnell who orchestrated that fiasco, who Trump called a great guy. Also, the Rs in the DC swamp are against MAGA and fighting him all the way. Bannon was and is at war with the MSM.

    Those great Republicans are working for amnesty, have repealed nothing of the onerous legislation, like Dodd-Frank, and did not “reform” the tax code.

    We did not get the tax bill Trump campaigned on and apart from Presidential orders they have done nothing to MAGA. Pretty much the entire administration is globalist and Ivanka is pushing her socialist agenda.

    • maybe a few more than two – your points are right on, Ben

    • I’m with you all the way, Ben. Trump thinks nothing of dumping those who were loyal to him. The establishment, deep state and MIC are winning the war. The Trump “movement” is fading fast. And if he continues the current path on foreign affairs, it will be game over.

      Such a shame. Our Republic needed what he promised.

      • All the patriots have been let go and the globalists are brought in. I’m holding out hope against facts that things will change. The DACA issue should be a good indicator. He certainly is winning big on non legislative issues.
