Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, when it rains it pours. I just finished pushing an article talking about how Bannon is going to go after the Trump brood, including with Robert Mueller if asked, and already the White House is out with a blanket condemnation of Bannon’s words in an article published in the Guardian of UK, and the statement is unbelievable. I am going to quote it in its entirity, and we ridicule it on
the dark side the other side;
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.”
Oh good Lord! If I’m Bannon, my only solace at this point is that at least The Inglorious Basterd didn’t refer to me as a “coffee boy.” Trumps complete disconnect to reality is stunning. Like there are no tapes of his glowing comments about Steve Bannon from podiums across the country during the campaign, or his glowing reviews of Bannon after the election. But most telling is the almost uncounted number of times that Trump toots his own horn in the statement. He spends almost as much, if not more time touting his brilliance as he does in slamming Bannon. Obviously Trump’s mother didn’t hug him enough when he was little, and his father never punched his arm and said, “Way to go champ!”
Trump is certifiably insane. Bannon fired a warning shot right across Trump’s bow, and the only thing that Trump can think of to do is to give him the coordinates for a direct hit midships? Paul Manafort attached himself to Trump purely for personal and financial reasons. But Bannon had a different agenda of his own, and you can bet he paid very close attention to everything he saw going on in that campaign, and every word he heard. Steve bannon can hand Robert Mueller the keys to the Cadillac in the White house driveway, and Trump is giving him directions to Mueller’s house. If His Lowness thinks that belittling Bannon’s influence and importance, I have just two words for him. George Papadopoulos. What a way to run a friggin’ railroad.
