Steve Bannon Tells Michael Wolff: Trump Is ‘Not Going to Make It’
The ex-White House strategist says in ‘Fire and Fury’ that he’s setting the stage for ‘when I am president’ (!!!) and that the current occupant is toast.
Harry Siegel

“He’s not going to make it,” Steve Bannon says of his old boss Donald Trump.

The former campaign manager and then White House chief strategist, now back at Breitbart, gives the president he takes credit for electing (“I came up with a solution for his broke-dick campaign in about a day”) a one-in-three chance of ending up impeached, of resigning, or of limping through one term before walking away.

“He’s lost his stuff.”

That’s according to Michael Wolff’s new account of the Trump White House, Fire and Fury, much of it sourced to Bannon and his camp, and most of it deeply hostile to Jarvanka, as they refer to first daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner.

Bannon, Wolff reports, has already assembled a “rump campaign operation” for 2020 and is telling people that Trump’s top 2016 backers—specifically Sheldon Adelson, Bob and Rebekah Mercer, Bernie Marcus and Peter Thiel—are now in Bannon’s corner as he travels the country meeting conservative leaders, to “kiss the ass and pay homage to all the gray-beards” as he sets the stage for “when I am president.”

The Guardian obtained a copy of Wolff’s book and published excerpts Wednesday morning, with Bannon predicting that special counsel Robert Mueller would “crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV.” Then, a few hours later, New York magazine rushed out its own authorized excerpt in which Bannon leads a Greek chorus of advisers, staffers, and confidants talking freely about how childish and unintelligent they find the commander in chief.

The Daily Beast obtained its own copy of the book later on Wednesday, at about the same time that Trump released a 265-word statement saying “Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency,” that “now that he is on his own, Steve is learning that winning isn’t as easy as I make it look,” and concluding that he “is simply seeking to burn it all down.” Hours later, Trump attorney Charles Harder said in a statement that “legal action is imminent” for Bannon allegedly violating his non-disparagement agreement with Trump and making “in some cases outright defamatory” statements.

Trump Tries to Halt Michael Wolff’s Book Release
Accuses the author of actual malice.

President Trump’s lawyers have sent a cease-and-desist letter to journalist Michael Wolff and book publisher Henry Holt, demanding that they halt the Jan. 9 publication of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, which has already made waves following the release of two excerpts in major publications. Trump is also asking for an apology for defamatory statements made in the excerpts. “We are investigating numerous false and/or baseless statements that you have made about Mr. Trump,” Trump’s lawyer, Charles Harder, reportedly wrote to Wolff. The apparently lengthy letter accuses Wolff of “actual malice” and declares that Trump’s team is looking into several legal avenues, including possible defamation of Trump and his family and invasion of privacy. Sections of the book reveal former top strategist Steve Bannon criticizing Trump campaign officials and family members, and it has prompted a political firestorm—and personal attacks by Trump himself aimed at Bannon. Trump has also sent a cease-and-desist to Bannon through his legal team.

Satire from The Borowitz Report
Trump Angrily Throws Steve Bannon’s Signed Copy of “Mein Kampf” in Trash

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Furious over a very public breakup with his former adviser Steve Bannon, Donald Trump on Wednesday angrily threw a copy of “Mein Kampf” that Bannon had inscribed to him in the trash.

The book, which Bannon had given to Trump as a token of his love and friendship during the 2016 campaign, had been among Trump’s most prized possessions, aides said.

“Trump loved that book, but now he feels that having Bannon’s name on it ruins it,” an aide said.

Another aide, however, cautioned not to make too much of the fact that Trump discarded the Bannon-signed Hitler book. “He’s still got plenty of other copies,” the aide said.

While most of Trump’s aides reflexively took their boss’s side in the dustup with Bannon, one staffer could not help expressing some sympathy for the exiled former adviser. “To be called mentally ill by Donald Trump—that’s got to hurt,” the aide said.

Some of the "disclosures" are repetitive, I know. But each comedian or commentator has a different take. shameless grin

Donald Trump vs. Steve Bannon
While the weather is cold, Donald Trump is very hot. Jimmy talks about Trump's announcement that he will be putting on a fake news media awards show, getting called out by Steve Bannon in a new book and releases never before heard audio of the recent phone call between North Korea and South Korea.

Bannon Said Trump Has 'Lost His Stuff' And Won't Get Second Term: Wolff
by Graham Lanktree
Trump's former White House chief strategist doesn't believe the president can survive politics, writes Fire and Fury author.

A salacious new book about the Trump administration claims former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon doesn’t think President Donald Trump will make it to a second term.

“He’s not going to make it,” Bannon said last October at the Breitbart Embassy, a Washington, D.C., town house where he runs Breitbart News, of President Donald Trump’s chances of a second term, according to author Michael Wolff. “He’s lost his stuff.”

Bannon’s comments, excerpted from Wolff’s new book Fire and Fury, which went on sale at midnight, appeared in The Times of London on Friday.
