Trump: Bannon has 'lost his mind'

In a blistering statement issued by the White House, Trump said Bannon has "lost his mind."

"When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind," Trump said in a statement. "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."

"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," the president continued.

Bannon seems to be doing the work of the Marxists.

First championing a candidate in Alabama that Trump warned would lose now these despicable comments against The Trump family.

He has been bought

Bannon’s “quotes” come from a new book by Michael Wolff, who has a terrible reputation in journalistic circles for making up quotes and inventing events that never happened.

I'm not sticking up for Bannon here, but just asking people to consider the source - a disgraced and known peddler of “fake news” - before freaking out.

It could be fake news.

But where is Bannon’s denial?

Trump seems to believe it.

It is a fairly simple process to check and see if Trump said what he did. In this case I believe Trump which I don’t always do.

Bannon may end up running for President in 2020. If Trump ends up being a more or less conventional Conservative by that time which one will you support?

Donald Trump can take on Steve Bannon and lil Kim all at the same time! Stand back chumps and curiosity seekers!

Thankfully St Bannon has no nuclear buttons on his desk.

No way Bannon could win ...I also notice how much of the leaking stopped when Bannon left , I didn’t want to believe it was Bannon leaking , but it’s looking more likely he was the culprit

Strange would have lost as well. Strange was accused of serious corruption in dropping the investigation against the governor of Alabama. Had he been the nominee, the Democrats would have hammered the corruption angle instead of the made-up sex angle.

Ah but Trump endorsed a guy Michelle Malkin and Sean Hannity had warned was RINO in Luther Strange in the Alabama primary so many prominent conservatives didn’t want him they wanted Mo Brooks.

Considering that Brietbart has published the report of what Bannon said I don’t see him denying it.

Only a retard would support Bannon in 2020.
