Bannon’s revenge: Breitbart reportedly ramping up for ‘thermonuclear war against’ against Trump

Published

on

Now that former White House political strategist Steve Bannon is out of a job, many reports are claiming that he is planning a return to Breitbart News, the nationalist website he used in 2016 to promote Donald Trump’s campaign for president.

However, it looks like Bannon won’t be giving Trump the same cushy treatment that he received during last year’s campaign against Hillary Clinton.

One of Bannon’s friends tells reporter Gabriel Sherman that Breitbart is “ramping up for war against Trump” in the wake of Bannon’s ouster.

“It’s now a Democrat White House,” the friend tells Sherman, likely a reference to Bannon’s belief that First Daughter Ivanka Trump, along with key advisers such as Jared Kushner and Gary Cohn, are New York liberals who are disconnected from the nationalist message that Trump used to win the 2016 election.

Similarly, a source close to Breitbart News tells Axios’ Jonathan Swan that the news website plans to “go ‘thermonuclear’ against ‘globalists’ that Bannon and his friends believe are ruining the Trump administration, and by extension, America.”

As if to confirm the reports, Breitbart editor Joel Pollak simply tweeted “#WAR” in response to news of Bannon’s ouster.

If Breitbart were to really launch a war against Trump, it would leave the White House with few reliable media allies apart from top Fox News personalities.

Later Friday, Bannon went on the record, saying that the claim for “war” meant that he’s going to war against those in Congress, the media and the corporate sector who have opposed Trump.

Bombshell report confirms Trump ‘repeatedly pressed’ Ukrainian leader to probe Joe Biden’s family

Published

on

A new report from the Wall Street Journal confirms that President Donald Trump over the summer "repeatedly pressed" Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden.

According to WSJ, Trump asked Zelensky an estimated eight different times to launch a probe of Hunter Biden in a move aimed at crippling Joe Biden's presidential campaign.

"He told him that he should work with [Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani] on Biden, and that people in Washington wanted to know," one of WSJ's sources claims. According to this source, however, Trump on this phone call made no mention of foreign aid and didn't offer Zelensky an explicit quid-pro-quo for his cooperation in investigating Biden.

Yale psychiatrist on what the whistleblower scandal reveals about Trump’s ‘self-defeating pathology’

Published

on

On Thursday, information emerged that a whistleblower in the intelligence community had officially submitted a complaint suggesting that President Donald Trump had had a compromising discussion with a foreign leader.

As the news circulated Friday, commentators raised the possibility that Trump had offered the president of Ukraine a stronger relationship in exchange for dirt on Joe Biden.

Raw Story spoke with Yale psychiatrist Bandy X. Lee, who has studied the president's erratic behavior.

Lee is a forensic psychiatrist and violence expert at Yale School of Medicine. She has been consulting with the World Health Organization since 2002, has taught at Yale Law School since 2003, and is author of the textbook, “Violence.” In 2017, she held an ethics conference that led to the public-service book, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump,” and the World Mental Health Coalition. She also convened a panel to assess the president’s mental capacity and chairs a working group on a panel for performing presidential fitness-for-duty tests. She is hosting discussions on the need to speak about a president’s mental health at the Yale Law School and the School of Medicine this week.
