Trump v. Bannon


The president disavowed Mr Bannon after he was quoted in a new book describing a meeting between Mr Trump’s son and a group of Russians as “treasonous”.

The Russians had offered Donald Trump Jr damaging information on Hillary Clinton at the June 2016 meeting.

Mr Bannon’s quote appears in a new book by journalist Michael Wolff.

“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,” Mr Trump said in a statement on Wednesday.

I’m finding it difficult to get exercised over this latest dust up. First, it’s a pissing match between two world-class liars. Second, up until five minutes ago, the Left told us that Bannon was a white nationalist liar bent on the destruction of America. Today he is apparently the noble whistle-blower. I can’t keep up on who I’m supposed to hate or not. Third, if there’s anything we have learned about Bannon, it’s that he is unswerving in his support for Bannon. He is cashing the ultimate “insider” check with his “tell all.” And the media is helping him get richer.

I’m going to go back to worrying about Trump’s big button. That was funnier.

    Think about how difficult it must be for those who must believe that both Trump and Bannon are always telling the truth.

    Nice Strawman you’ve assembled.

    Careful, Paul, you’re straying from pure playground bullying and insults, and coming dangerously close to constructive discussion such as examining logical fallacies.

    Changing the narrative, shifting the blame or just making up another story appears to be the modus operandi of the media.  While some can accept Fire and Fury and the Steele dossier as fact, I must look at this with the same jaded eye as the murders tied to the Clintons.  Undoubtedly there is a kernel of truth in all but I am unwilling to swallow any of this hook, line and sinker.

    Breaking news: the Gorilla Channel is real.  President Trump watches it 17 hours a day.

    2017:  I hire all the best people.  So good, you won’t believe it.

    2018:  They’re all liars.
