TWEETSTORM: Junior Unleashes On “Liar” Bannon

Mediaite reports:

Like father, like son. Shortly after President Donald Trump released a scathing statement denouncing his former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, as “crazy,” Donald Trump Jr. lit the Breitbart chairman up on Twitter. As part of an excerpt from a soon-to-be-released book authored by USA Today’s Michael Wolff, Bannon ripped Don Jr., among others, over the infamous Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer.

    What a clustertrump of a family and inner circle.

    • DreadPikathulhu

      The Beverly Hillbillys would have more class.

      • pch1013

        The Bundys from “Married with Children” would have more class.

      • dogdadny

        The Beverly Hillbillies had lots of class. The lacked education and exposure to city living but they were always respectful of everyone, hospitable, had great manors and although the didn’t understand a lot of things they never closed their minds or shut people out of their home or lives. Sure Granny Lhasa a quick temper and a shotgun but she never shot no one and he’d was always there to explain.

        The tRumps don’t even compare.

  • Judas Peckerwood

    You’re picking a fight waaaaaay out of your weight class, son.

  • JT

    Still in the Drumpf dumb family category, would Junior be dense as a head full of lead?

  • Mr. M

    Everything happens for a reason. Maybe, Trump was supposed to win so the GOP could finally tear itself apart

  • safari

    We know now who is going to end up in jail first.

  • Tawreos

    I thought sowing division and lies was Breitbarts reason for being

    • Rambie

        Let’s hope Trumpty-Dumpty gets an eggcelent cell in the upcoming year

  • Tawreos

    Mooch really does think he is going to get back in the White House.

  • another_steve

    Based on his appearance, I conclude that Junior is the offspring of Donald J. Trump and a female rat named “Marge.”

    • safari

      I shall have to put Marge on my list of names to resurrect.

      • another_steve

        Man and I used to go to a Holiday Inn here for Saturday morning breakfast, and our favorite waitress (it was okay to call them that, back then) was Marge. She was a real Baltimore hon. Right out of a John Waters flick.

        (Hon, it you’re readin’ here… miss ya.)

        • Galvestonian

          Once just outside of North Wales Pennsylvania – I think it was very near or possibly on route 30 – there was a very small diner – possibly made out of a trolley car body & it served the stuff that your grandmother used to make – meatloaf – pork chops – a good beef stew, cabbage rolls with gravy, fried chicken that had been soaked in buttermilk for 12 hours, good chili, stuffed peppers, fish & chips, creamy & sweet cole slaw and at least a dozen other mouthwatering meals that brought you back. The place was just next to an old airport right out of a 1920’s novel. It was absolutely fantastic. The waitresses were all old hands that had worked the place for 30 years or more and had never changed – 1940’s hairstyles with white waitress outfits with aprons and some sort of folded and tinted lacy hankerchiefs as corsages and a name tag. My favorite waitress was ‘Hannah’ who addressed all of her customers as ‘hon’. Some time in the 70’s it was replaced by a strip mall and a piece of history disappeared.

          • another_steve

            Great story, wonderfully told. Thank you, Galvestonian. 😉

            These memories – the sight, sound and smell of them – we always remember.

            Always.

          • anne marie in philly

            was it “the frazer diner” by some chance? I grew up in paoli.

          • Galvestonian

            Hey … it might have been. I’m 75 this month and I probably have that memory tucked away in the grey cells but it don’t want to come out.

          • anne marie in philly

    • katkelly57

      Poor Marge…..

      • I like to imagine that after being abandoned by her so-called friends, she became the Demigorgon’s wife and began directing his acts of violent revenge.

      • clay

        Don’t worry, her birth canal was large enough to accommodate Jr.’s brain case.

        • katkelly57

          Wheew!

        • Christopher

          Actually Jr. is just one of Marge’s turds that became sentient.

    • Tawreos

      I thought rats had better taste than that

          Back in the late-80s – despite the fact that my husband and I were still working ridiculously long hours for the federal government, Monday thru Friday – we made it a point to get up early on Saturdays to catch “Pee-wee’s Playhouse” on TV. It was our little vice.

          Queer people who remember that series appreciate what a total hijacking of respectable commercial TV it was, back in its day. I mean, mothers would allow their young sons and daughters to watch it, assuming it was just “innocent” fun.

          Fools. Naive fools. 🙂

          Paul Reubens: Hope you’re well, babe, and stayin’ out of trouble.

          • Judas Peckerwood

            Yup, I wouldn’t get up early for ANYTHING except Pee Wee on Saturdays.

          • anne marie in philly

            gawd, I LOVE pee-wee herman! and jambi & cowboy curtis & miss yvonne & reba the mail lady!

          • another_steve

            Right?

            mid-to-late 80s?

            I mean…was that show fuckin’ special or what?

          • anne marie in philly

            FUCK YEAH! it was an adult show aimed at kids. kinda like bugs bunny cartoons.

          • Sporkfighter

            “I mean, mothers would allow their young sons and daughters to watch it, assuming it was just “innocent” fun.”

            It can be queer and innocent fun.

          • another_steve

            You and I know that… but in middle-America 1980s…?

            … a complete hijacking.

          • PlutoAnimus

            Pee-Wee: What size boot do you wear?
            Cowboy Curtis (Lawrence Fishburne): Size 12 double-e.
            P-W: Wow, those sure are big boots!
            CC: Well, you know what they say…..
            P-W: No, what do they say?
            CC: Big boots, big feet!
            (Pee-Wee looks confused.)

            Now that’s a subversive ‘kid’s’ show.

          • another_steve

            Lol. Just one of many subtle “double entendres” in that show.

            Love to you for remembering that one, PlutoAnimus. 😉

          • KevInPDX

            PBS did a really documentary on PeeWees playhouse. Paul Rubens was considered a genius by the folks who worked with him. Back in the day I was w/o TV and doing field work so I didn’t really see it. I get it now.

    • romanhans

      The NY Daily News has a great story explaining Trump’s hair. Evidently he was balding on top so he had scalp reduction surgery. There’s still a giant hole so he combs everything toward it and sprays.

      Pain from the surgery is allegedly what caused him to assault Ivanka. And the hair color is Just For Men, but of course President Idiot is too impatient to leave it on long enough to reach the natural-looking stage.

      • FuzzyOtter

        It reads like a supermarket tabloid, doesn’t it? I keep waiting for batboy to make an appearance. Many of these excerpts almost defy belief, which is something I didn’t think was possible at this point.

        • Reality.Bites

          TBH, I don’t see them as defy belief. I see them as explaining a lot.

          What we’ve been told may be true or may be untrue. What it’s not, in my opinion is remotely illogical or non-credible given the information about the people involved we already have.

          • FuzzyOtter

            I did say almost 🙂

        • romanhans

          The details are really filling in the blanks to create this 3D character who is plagued by all seven of the Deadly Sins. He’d be a tragic figure if he wasn’t so disgusting. Picture him with the Just for Men in his hair: “Twelve minutes? I CAN’T DO IT! It’s too slow. TOO SLOW!”

      • olandp

        I always thought it was a botched transplant. The color is horrendous, a bad home job to be sure.

      Based on his expressed intelligence, he obviously did NOT get his smarts from “Marge”

      • Sporkfighter

    …and Bannon is positive that Uday took the Ruskies up to meet Daddy after their meeting.

    • safari

      But Steve wasn’t brought on until August

      • clay

        It was, what, 15-20 minutes after the meeting that Trump Sr. tweeted “33,000 emails” for the first time, AND Trump Sr. was the first to do that.

    • Lazycrockett

      Of course he did, he has to get daddy’s approval.

    • There was never much doubt…but really, really nice to see someone ON THE RECORD go ahead and confirm it.

      Treason.

      • Cuberly Deux

        That nothing wasn’t exchanged in that meeting is getting more and more implausible.

        The problem is they want to claim Trump is a great president, but he’s actually doing things conspiracy theorists claimed democrats have been doing for decades.

        Colluding with Russia.
        Trying to put together a secret police.
        Trying to suppress free speech.
        Trying to suppress voters.
        Using the office of the Presidency to make money.
        And of course, having a POTUS who is an emotional and mental child.

        They tried claiming those accusations were true of any democrat, but now here is a republican who basically tweets his shit, and they cannot justify it.

        SO they just go nuts

        • Galvestonian

          Ya know, it’s like sitting in the old kitchen at home when we were kids and watching mom get a cake together from scratch. A little bit of this, and some of that, a couple cupfulls of something else and a tablespoon of really good smelling stuff, some eggs and mix it up for the oven. Sometimes you even got to lick the spoon. Then the oven and the smell was OMG — so good.

          Waiting for Mueller’s potfull of magic is something like this – you don’t know what is gonna come out but it promises to be absolutely delicious. Just the hints and the anticipation feed us. Oh it’s gonna be sooooo good. In a way it’s happiness anticipated.

    2) Trump has a fear of being poisoned which is why he eats so much McDonalds
    3) Multiple off the record quotes from Trump staff insisting he’s only ‘semi-literate’
    4) Trump said Javanka should have stayed in NY
    5) Called Conway ‘crybaby’, Kushner ‘suck-up’, Spicey ‘stupid’, Reince ‘weak’
    6) Reprimanded housekeeping for not leaving shirts on the floor
    7) Didn’t know who John Boehner was
    8) Ailes: Don’t give him too much to think about

      Bannon’s candidate of choice before Donnie was Sessions….yep. As if Donnie wasn’t unbalance enough Sessions was the preferred wack-a-doo.

      • The_Wretched

        Bannon is Mercer’s servant and Mercer is a christianist loon.

        • Cuberly Deux

          Mercer is also a white nationalist, right up Sessions’ alley.

      • Rambie

        Probably because Bannon thought Sessions could be controlled where Donnie is too much up his own a** to listen to anyone else.

        • Reality.Bites

          Sessions at the very least understands the basics of law and government as well as someone who did well in high school civics class.

          That is light years beyond Trump.

          • The_Wretched

        Trump – “Hell, I’m going to have to do work now”

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        Exactly.
        He wanted to go on to lose so he could blah blah about Hillary and rigging forever.
        Then, he realized his Russian $$ mafia connections would come out.

        • That’s a key point made, at least in the book excerpts I’ve read: The Trumpers (and Donald himself) did not bother with any of the niceties of running for office because they didn’t think they’d win.

          Thus the line in there about someone mentioning to Flynn, “Hey, that $45k you got from Russia could be a problem.” To which he replied, “It won’t be a problem when we don’t win. Nobody will care.”

          Same with Trump’s tax returns. He figured he could just coast past the election without ever releasing them. Same with financial statements.

          By Nov 8th, the Clinton campaign would’ve already prepared short-lists for all the key admin positions. The Trumpers had NOTHING. They didn’t plan on a chief of staff or SecDef or Nat Sec advisor or anything because they never thought they’d need to.

          Trump’s entire campaign was a scam that was never supposed to work. Until it did. Then all the grand plans for Trump Tower Moscow and Trump TV and Donald getting to spend the rest of his life having pointless political rallies went bye-bye.

    • Reality.Bites

      Treant – is it possible to make a soap on a rope that can be used safely as a lubricant?

  • To be clear again folks: Bannon did not write this blockbuster book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.” It’s just that he’s heavily quoted in it, as are many other WH insiders, including Ivanka herself.

    But as it so happens, Bannon really trash-talked everybody and the whole ‘President Bannon’ meme was one he really didn’t mind going around…until the day Donald found out about it in the spring of last year and nearly fired him over it. The SNL portrayal of Bannon as president and Donald consigned to the kiddie desk infuriated him to no end.

    Anyway, Michael Wolff wrote the book, and he’s got solid credentials.

    Michael Wolff has received numerous awards for his work, including two National Magazine Awards. He has been a regular columnist for Vanity Fair, New York, The Hollywood Reporter, British GQ, USA Today, and The Guardian. He is the author of six prior books, including the bestselling Burn Rate and The Man Who Owns the News.

    I went ahead and preordered the Kindle version: https://www.amazon.com/Fire-Fury-Inside-Trump-White-ebook/dp/B077F4WZZY

    • boobert

      Wolff was running around the west wing talking with everyone. Someone had to approve that. It may have been bannon.

      • Donald approved it. Because Wolff was Murdoch’s biographer.

        Once again, psychosis-level narcissism has proven Donald’s undoing. Because he basically gave Rita Skeeter the run of the place.

        • Reality.Bites

          Holy fuck. It’s as if Nixon had hired Woodward and Bernstein as his biographers.

          • coram nobis

            And Martha Mitchell as his protocol director.

    • Cuberly Deux

      In the breitbart comments section there’s a bunch of commenters really trying to bend over backwards poo pooing it all, claiming Bannon is just trying to sell a book. Why spin it that Bannon wrote it? Weird stuff going in over there.

      • Because they’re too stone-stupid to actually check to see who did write it.

      • HOW HE GOT THE STORY
        This story is adapted from Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, to be published by Henry Holt & Co. on January 9. Wolff, who chronicles the administration from Election Day to this past October, conducted conversations and interviews over a period of 18 months with the president, most members of his senior staff, and many people to whom they in turn spoke. Shortly after Trump’s inauguration, Wolff says, he was able to take up “something like a semi-permanent seat on a couch in the West Wing” — an idea encouraged by the president himself. Because no one was in a position to either officially approve or formally deny such access, Wolff became “more a constant interloper than an invited guest.” There were no ground rules placed on his access, and he was required to make no promises about how he would report on what he witnessed.

        Since then, he conducted more than 200 interviews. In true Trumpian fashion, the administration’s lack of experience and disdain for political norms made for a hodgepodge of journalistic challenges. Information would be provided off-the-record or on deep background, then casually put on the record. Sources would fail to set any parameters on the use of a conversation, or would provide accounts in confidence, only to subsequently share their views widely. And the president’s own views, private as well as public, were constantly shared by others. The adaptation presented here offers a front-row view of Trump’s presidency, from his improvised transition to his first months in the Oval Office.

        From the NY Magazine excerpt article: http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2018/01/michael-wolff-fire-and-fury-book-donald-trump.html

        • The_Wretched

          It was gross incompetence to let Wolff hang out like that. Not that we needed even more examples but I can’t believe that someone like Spicer didn’t flag it as a huge political risk.

          • They were all in way over their heads, including Spicey. Heck, just consider the huge national security risks involved with basically letting a guy have the run of the building, but no actual job or duties other than to gather information.

            The biggest fool in all this was Donald himself, for giving the okay. All to feed his ego.

            Tony Schwartz (the actual writer for ‘The Art of the Deal’) had similar accounts. Having an ‘on staff biographer’ was something the narcissist in Donald just couldn’t refuse. It is also why Cheeto Twittler never imagines someone who is frequently nearby and who is nice and deferential all the time will actually one day “tell all.”

          • Chucktech

            Having an ‘on staff biographer’ was something the narcissist in Donald just couldn’t refuse.

            What this tells me is that despite the glaring turmoil and chaos, Donald Trump saw nothing amiss or awry and was perfectly fine having someone chronicle the entire disaster.

            I find that astounding. Anyone else with at least half a brain would see that things aren’t going so well and would have pulled the plug on this guy.

          • clay

            Spicer? Donny didn’t even let Priebus have enough power to act.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      I’m torn.

      Directly feeding the media money machine that keeps Drumpf on the front pages of everything, versus adding my wee thin mint to his rage so he finally strokes out…. Decisions, decisions.

      • When I buy a book, I don’t think about the publisher’s cut.

        I think about the hard working author or journalist, being compensated for a job well done.

        • Lumpy Gaga

          I’m not thinking so much about one particular publisher as I am about feeding any Trump-related frenzy. It’s a week away and #1 on Amazon.

          (ironically, The Washington Bezost today published a long article on why the book is unbelievable.)

          • I’m a writer myself. So I’m biased.

          • Lumpy Gaga

            Also, too… since the antenna on my bullshit detector will extend every time Bannon is named as a source, I’m afraid it will just break if he’s a major portion of the sourcing.

          • SelectFromWhere

            Speaking of Amazon, please buy this book from local stores if possible, or at the very least a bricks & mortar chain store like Barnes & Noble where at least the store employees are local. Jeff Bezos has all the money he needs.

      • The_Wretched

        The right is in turmoil. It’ll take them a bit to settle on a line. They were also surprised so the canned talking points aren’t relevant. We should see trial balloons even tomorrow and something like forced marching by next week.

      • Cuberly Deux

        I think they’re caught off guard, meeting under their bridge to get their copy/paste crap together.

    • safari

      Does he leave with a knife in his back?

      • Gustav2

        Or is he telling Ryan the investigation may make him preznit.

        • William

          Ryan has his fingers in some Russia document leaks. He’s going down for conspiracy with a foreign power in an election.

      • coram nobis

        Or a knife with Jared’s fingerprints on it, as evidence. It’s the romantic in me.

    • Uh oh…

    • Cuberly Deux

      Nunez about to get yanked?

      • Lumpy Gaga

        Ryan is said to have the power to do so. It’s certainly the shortest distance between any 2 of the hundreds of possible points.

    • The_Wretched

      Not good. Best case scenario is that Ryan is seeing if there’ll have to be a succession to the presidency. More likely are the options on the other end where Ryan either threatens Rosenstein or pressures him to rein in Mueller.

      • Gustav2

        like minds.

        • Juvela Bumblebee

          Do we know who called for that meeting?

          • Gustav2

            No.

          • The_Wretched

            I assume we’ll be able to make a decent guess once we see the fall out.

          • Juvela Bumblebee

            Yeah… but the thought that he would be telling Ryan to expect to be president is rather exciting… not that he would be good, but the entire WH is just so incredibly foul. Even a puss-bag like Ryan would be an improvement. I almost don’t want to get back to work… dreaming of police storming the WH and carrying off the filth in handcuffs… OK, not likely, but… wow! … the thought of it.

          • canoebum

            Great. We switch out a golf addict for a gymbunny.

          • Juvela Bumblebee

            Gym-bunny puss bag, for sure, but he is not likely to start a nuclear war. True, he is absolutely evil, so not looking forward to that, but one can deal with a rational man… even an evil one.

          • canoebum

            Rational? More like arrested development. The man has not progressed intellectually beyond age 15.

          • Juvela Bumblebee

            15 you say? … that sounds about right. Even so, the “age of reason” from a legal standpoint I found defined as: The age of reason varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Normally, seven years is usually the age below which a child is conclusively presumed not to have committed a crime or tort. And, 14 years is usually the age below which a rebuttable presumption applies. So, 15, one can work with that. However, the Traitor, if he ever was rational, senility seems to have taken it.

          • AmeriCanadian

            The remaining wealth of the nation has already been promised to the top 1% so Ryan’s agenda has basically been accomplished. I’m sure he could do other damage, like cut funding for what he calls entitlements but I doubt he would be eager to push the button, let alone engage in Kim.

          • kareemachan

            Some source said ryan complied with the request, so….

        I used to listen to North Korea on the shortwave radio back in the … well, whenever it was that people listened to shortwave radio. It came in, in English, on the East Coast of the US at about 2:30 a.m. DPRK_News sounds exactly like NK shortwave broadcasts. It took me in at first. It’s a parody account, though. I’m sorry to be the bearer of sad tidings.

        Even though I know why it’s possible, I’m still amazed that I can or could get a radio signal from the other side of the planet. North Korea probably still broadcasts in English. Glenn Hauser will know:
