Trump RAGES: When I Fired “Leaking” Loser Steve Bannon, He Not Only Lost His Job, He Lost His Mind

DELICIOUS.

Just in from the White House:

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.

  • Taylor

    Trump asserting that someone else has lost their mind is the most ironic thing I’ve read today.

    • Prost Seattle

      There were complete sentence in that statement. I’m doubtful if he wrote it, but if it’s on a White Castle wrapper I’d look at Ms. Huckabee Sanders.

  • The Milkman

    Actually, he’s been the most consistent voice in your administration. He’s insane, yes. But he’s at least consistently so.

  • Bambino

    Bannon new title is Leakyweak not to b confused with Assand’s Weakyleak.

    • kareemachan

      Hey, don’t diss assand’s penis like that….

    • HoneyBoySmith

      not to b confused with Assand’s Putin’s Weakyleak.

      FTFY.

    • Todd20036

      And Trump’s Teeny Leaker.

  • Joe

    Lmaooooo

  • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

    Newsweek: “Multiple associates of both Trump and Bannon told The Washington Post that the two have kept in regular touch since Bannon resigned as White House chief strategist in August…Trump reportedly initiates the calls to avoid the hawk-like scrutiny of his chief of staff, former Marine Corps general John Kelly, who regulates the president’s incoming communications.”

    • Bambino

      Hence i’m not surprise if this is another planted infighting.

      • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

        Yup, upping the distraction game.

        SQUIRREL!!!!

        • Bambino

          It has always been the consistent strategy since day one. Creating chaos real or fake.

    • Uncle Mark

      If this is planned infighting, what is this distracting us from? I’m not sure how this is benefitting the Trump regime. (What am I missing?)

      • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

        Have ya’ heard about the Russia thing? The noose is tightening. Fusion GPS is providing lots of info. There is a great new article in the NY Times that drops many bombs. But it it not the main story in the news cycle, Trump & Bannon are trying to dominate. I also think the “my button is bigger” tweet is also for the same purpose.

        https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/02/opinion/republicans-investigation-fusion-gps.html

        • clay

          But what does it gain trump, or Bannon, to lose Breitbart?

        • Uncle Mark

          I’m well aware of the Russian thang. This Bannon-Trump fight seems to add another voice in the Trump collusion allegations…unless the idea is for Bannon to put out a false lead or false piece of evidence…only to have it disproven…and therefore claim that all additional evidence be held suspect.

          I can’t believe that this might even be a set-up to throw Junior under the bus, as Junior probably knows everything, and would sing to save his skin.

          As for this being a distraction from the N Korean exchange, I am more likely to believe that Trump would use the N Korean exchange as a distraction from his Russian collusion.

          • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

            I meant that the big button thing was also a Russia distraction, we agree on that.

  • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

    Trump, who’s button is bigger, yours or Bannon’s? He certainly pushed yours!

    • What snowflakes they are.

        Just imagine the utter freak show that his State of the Union address will be.

        He’ll point to the cameras filming it and declare the free press the enemy of the people.

        • The_Wretched

  • gaycuckhubby
    • That’s right. The rules are simple:

      1. Unwavering and total loyalty from others is what Donald demands, up to and including throwing away one’s life if that’s what it takes to protect him.
      2. Donald only feigns loyalty toward others, and favor quickly turns to complete rejection if at any point doing so benefits him more.

      This is, btw, what it means to be a textbook-classic narcissist, and he’s one of the most extreme cases ever witnessed.

      • another_steve

        The man is truly unraveling. Observers have been noting it for the past few months, but in recent weeks the unraveling has accelerated.

        One really has to wonder how much of this congressional Republicans can/will take.

        Have they all lost their minds?

        • Tawreos

          They’ll get rid of him when the people that finance them say to get rid of him.

        • The_Wretched

          Until Trump is taking nude walks on the WH lawn or publicly groping the secret service, they will not officially recognize his madness.

        • clay

          When’s the next Cabinet meeting? Could he go foaming mouth threatening to them? Would that be enough?

        • Buford

          I’m beginning to agree with the theory which asserts that the Russians’ parallel hack of the RNC servers provided TrumpCo with compromising info on several GOP members of Congress. The most obvious example is Lindsay, who pulled a full 180 to defend Trump and who is most likely to have (ahem) embarrassing info in emails and etc.

        • jeffg166

          Yes.

          • Todd20036

            and “but Hillary” or “but Obama”

            It’s not like they can prove we are lying about Trump being a Nazi traitor

          • Uncle Mark

      • RoFaWh

        North Korea is much better organized than you might think. Accounts I’ve read describe NK society as consisting of three castes: those who actively fought to bring Kimism to NK; those who, while they didn’t actively fight, provided support; and those who did nothing. The last caste are slaves to the other two.

        “Caste” because this categorization is hereditary.

        Note that this arrangement has been in effect now for over half a century.

    • Todd20036

      I cannot. She would have been a great president, but would have been hamstrung by the GOP pretending they weren’t Nazis.

      If there’s one GOOD thing about Trump, it’s that he also uncovered the basic premise about the GOP actually wanting to govern.

      If nothing else, Trump showed the GOP really was all about either Nazi ideals or making the wealthiest even wealthier.

      They just don’t care about anyone else.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok
    • SoCalGal20

      Oops.

      • Todd20036

        I bet a lot of people who thought the could get away with shit because it wouldn’t be investigated, started shaking in their boots as soon as Trump won.

        It’s sort of like the show, “The Producers”. They thought they could pull a scam by creating a lousy show, but the show turned out to be a success, so the scam was uncovered.

        • Rambie

          Then, for awhile at least, they thought it could be covered up by the complicit GOPers Congress

          This article is AMAZING.

          Best part so far:

          >> Ailes, a veteran of the Nixon, Reagan, and Bush 41 administrations,
          tried to impress on Trump the need to create a White House structure
          that could serve and protect him. “You need a son of a bitch as your
          chief of staff,” he told Trump. “And you need a son of a bitch who knows
          Washington. You’ll want to be your own son of a bitch, but you don’t
          know Washington.” Ailes had a suggestion: John Boehner, who had stepped down as Speaker of the House only a year earlier.

          “Who’s that?” asked Trump.

          • Todd20036

            In 2 words, Trump summed up his knowledge of Washington.

            Gods, I could be a better president. Just because I listened in civics class.

  • Precious pussygrabbing: “the most talented field ever assembled in the Republican party.”

    The “most talented field” item is a reference to the tiny car full of seventeen scary circus kkklowns. Trump being among the scariest of the bunch, along with Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee..

    Steve had very little to do with our historic victory, which was delivered by the forgotten men and women of this country

    Except for the fact that from August 2016 on through the election, Bannon was literally the Trump campaign manager, and by the end of January was powerful enough to maneuver himself into a seat on the National Security Council. And he would remain one of the most powerful WH figures until John Kelly took over as Chief of Staff and had him fired.

    • The other delicious bit of irony here is if Bannon wasn’t instrumental to Donald’s win, it further bolsters the proposal it had to have been Russia.

    • SoCalGal20

    Things are really falling apart. We’ve had to deal with absolute insanity for the last 12 months but it is beginning to feel like we’re finally reaching an end. The Republican base is fracturing so those Republicans in power will no longer have a reason to continue supporting a president they know is unhinged and dangerous.

    Just remember as he denies and tries to spin Drumpf happily gave Wolff full access to the white house and staffers because Wolff once wrote a nice piece on him.

    • Yup. That’s exactly how it goes. Say something nice, and suddenly Donald is there on his knees, begging for more attention. So he opens up everything.

    Can’t help but wonder if in the end of Trump’s dictatorship (which will hopefully be sooner than later) every person in his White House, his cabinet and perhaps even his family will ultimately be on his hateful shit list – and he will be alone in world. Perhaps even Melania will say fuck all this and divorce him. Trump is getting more paranoid and mentally unstable every day and everyone around him knows it.

    • RoFaWh

      Don’t kid yourself (nor Trump, for that matter). Trump is already alone in the world. Everyone he knows has either experienced his craziness first hand, or has already been fired. He has no friends, no supporters except those who view him as a useful idiot.

      I can imagine the pillow talk between Jared and Ivannnkakkkkaa:

      Jared: Whad’ya think of fat ass’s rant this morning?
      Ivanka: Oh just another flight of fancy that means very little, if anything.
      Jared: But he’s your father!
      Ivanka: Well, that’s what they say, but I’m far from certain.

      That he’s turned out to be far more idiotic than Putin anticipated makes me want to laugh (and cry). Trump is like a puppet who has broken his own strings and escaped control.

    Someone suggests that this is a distraction manufactured by the fucking moron and the booze hound. I can accept that up to a point. It would certainly explain how the liar in chief’s language improved. And if the accusations are agreed on, there’s no harm done in their relationship. But there’s still the annoying element known as “the book.” Why would either one of them care whether it sells well or not? So who knows? They’re both crazy enough to manufacture a conspiracy, but the book sounds somewhat brutal.

    • I’m reading the excerpts. It is brutal. And it confirms the theory I had all along: The ENTIRE goal was a crippled Clinton presidency, not for Donald to win. Even he and his campaign team didn’t think they’d win, and in time came not to want to, due to the consequences afterward, but also the growing realization (even among these blood-goblins!) just how unfit Donald was for the job.

      http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2018/01/michael-wolff-fire-and-fury-book-donald-trump.html

      • The_Wretched

        Sure wish we could have audited the election. I don’t think he actually won. Alternatively, it’s plain evidence that we don’t have fair and free elections. Republicans have broken the system so that even a hated clown that’s unfit for the job wins anyway.

        Of course, if we had mail in paper ballots with a 2 week voting window (or something actually free and fair), republicans wouldn’t win control of anything ever again.

        • RoFaWh

          What the US is going to have to do if it wishes to preserve its democracy: remove from the states all responsibility for Federal elections: district boundaries (we call them ridings in Canada) and how the voting is done, preferably on PAPER ballots.

    This was bound to happen eventually. Bannon fancies himself as President one day. He knows firsthand about the shinnanigans going on between POTUS and Russia and can read the writing on the wall. He needs to separate himself from Trump if he hopes to run one day and this book is step one.

    • RoFaWh

      Bannon will never be President for one very simple reason: the electorate won’t vote for anyone who looks as drunk and disheveled as he does. Gin blossoms, indeed.

      • Steven B

        No argument there except to say that they voted for Trump. That said I was just pointing out his intention as demonstrated by his Twitter handle, @PresidentBannon.

  • Halou

    Yeah? Steve Bannon was only a coffee boy no doubt. The Trump regime and it’s coffee…
    I’m sure Cambridge Analytica has a different opinion though along with their billionaire backers the influential Mercer family. The company that Steve Bannon was a manager for, and that processed voter data illegally acquired by the Kremlin so that it could be used to target ‘middle’ and undecided voters in 2016, as well as feed ammunition to the far-right.base such as the extremist Blacktivist ads that called for vigilante bands of armed black people, an ad that, as Facebook has since admitted, was paid for in roubles and was scripted to not show up on the feeds of Blacktivists themselves.

    Cambridge Analytica and it’s staff, including at the time Steve Bannon, committed a pretty serious crime for Donald Trump and this is how he repays them?

    • The_Wretched
