Unfortunately the feud escalates between president Trump and former chief strategist Steve Bannon.
While it’s obvious to us that Steve Bannon’s heart may be in the right place, he made some serious errors in judgement in believing that he could stand between the president and his family.
While Bannon remains adamant that he’s fully in support of the president, his dislike for Trump’s son-in-law and close advisor Jared Kushner is no secret. Mainly because Bannon can’t shut up about it.
Yes he has good reason to dislike Jared Kushner, as it’s obvious he’s a big city N.Y. liberal, and thus a potential bad influence on president Trump’s conservative agenda. However thinking that you can just bad mouth the man who is married to the president’s daughter without there being consequences is just not very smart.
The straw that broke the camel’s back though is this new book by Michael Wolff which is essentially a hit piece on president Trump and his administration. What Bannon was thinking when he decided to cooperate with this charade is anyone’s guess.
Could it be that Bannon was so blinded by his hate towards Trump’s liberal family that he saw this as an opportunity to “get back” at them, and spill the beans through this book?
At any rate, this prompted a swift and very harsh response directly from the president as can be seen by the tweet below:
Michael Wolff is a total loser who made up stories in order to sell this really boring and untruthful book. He used Sloppy Steve Bannon, who cried when he got fired and begged for his job. Now Sloppy Steve has been dumped like a dog by almost everyone. Too bad! https://t.co/mEeUhk5ZV9

“Sloppy Steve Bannon” and “dumped like a dog”… Ouch!
Breitbart has more:
President Donald Trump continued his feud with his former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, in response to a new book about his administration.Trump decried Bannon’s participation in interviews for the book released on Friday by Michael Wolff.
Trump and his White House aides are using Bannon as a foil for the controversial book, as many of the stories feature negative information about the president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner. Wolff also delivers sharp criticism of the president, despite White House aides giving him access to the senior staff in the West Wing.
The president sent his comment on Twitter late Friday night after traveling to Camp David to discuss his future agenda with Republican leaders in Congress.
