If you live under a rock and did not hear about the Steve Bannon Book yesterday, first I want to congratulate you for finding a way to avoid such things, but then just to bring you up to speed on what you missed out on, The New York Magazine released some really scathing excerpts from a book that is to be released soon written by Michael Wolff who is telling Steve Bannon’s story of his time with Donald J. Trump, Presidential Candidate turned President of the United States.
Judging from the book excerpts, it appears that Mr. Bannon has been silently suffering from a severe case of “butthurt” and at first opportunity got a severe case of “oral diarrhea” and unloaded a load of BS about his time with the President.
For someone that has been talking like a tough guy loyalist for the past year or so he is now sounding more along the lines of how he looks most of the time… Like shit!
Some of the excerpts actually stoop to the sort of BS level you expect to hear from the “Failing New York Times.”… You know, those expert comments they are famous for that come from an unknown anonymous source that no one has ever spoken to or met, but someone heard of someone that overheard them say something incriminating, therefore it becomes breaking news.
For example, Mr. Bannon gives an authoritative account of the meeting that Donald Jr. got suckered into even though he was not with the campaign at the time.
He describes the actions of Donald Jr. meeting with that attorney as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic” and confidently asserts that there is no way President Trump was left out of the loop and was certainly aware of the meeting.
Of course, everyone that was there at the time insists the President was not aware of the meeting that turned out to be about some adoption law as opposed to Hillary’s email. The meeting was certainly arranged so it could be used to give the appearance of wrongdoing to raise the sort of questions about the campaign’s conduct that we have seen.
As if making such a baseless accusation of treason was not enough, Mr. Bannon takes one last dig at the President’s son in the excerpt that reads, “They’re going to crack Don Jr. like an egg on national TV.”
Donald Jr. took more of a high road and tweeted the following in response to Steve Bannon’s nasty comments:
Steve had the honor of working in the White House & serving the country. Unfortunately, he squandered that privilege & turned that opportunity into a nightmare of backstabbing, harassing, leaking, lying & undermining the President. Steve is not a strategist, he is an opportunist

The President did not waste any time responding to Mr. Bannon’s nonsense either and he must have wanted his response well documented for historical purposes because instead of a tweet, he issued an official written statement that read:
“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.”
When the White House briefing time came around the liberal media had a field day doing their best to get attention with stupid insults and suddenly Steve Bannon, who they considered a dirty rotten no good lying lunatic when he was working with the President is now the voice of reasonable, honest authority of impeccable character…
While the briefing was taking place the President must have been consulting with his attorney because later on word got out that the President’s attorney had served Mr. Bannon with a Cease-and-Desist Order that read in part:
“You have breached the Agreement by, among other things, communicating with author Michael Wolff about Mr. Trump, his family members, and the Company [the Trump campaign], disclosing Confidential Information to Mr. Wolff, and making disparaging statements and in some cases outright defamatory statements to Mr. Wolff about Mr. Trump, his family members.”
The letter to Bannon also states that “remedies for your breach of the agreement include but are not limited to monetary damages.”
The attorney the President has retained to deal with Mr. Bannon is not one of his criminal lawyers but is a well known and very successful attorney that specializes in entertainment law. His name is Charles Harder, the lawyer that landed that huge settlement for Hulk Hogan against Gawker Media for that embarrassing video they released of the Hulk.
Mr. Harder also has the confidence of the First Lady… He represented Melania Trump in the defamation lawsuit against the Daily Mail, successfully putting them in their place.
Happy New Year! 2018 is not “going” to be an interesting year, it already is an interesting year… I can’t wait to see what week two brings our way… LOL
