Bannon mulls 2020 presidential run — and thinks ‘childlike’ Trump has ‘lost a step’: report

Published

Former top White House political strategist Steve Bannon reportedly thinks that President Donald Trump has clearly “lost a step” — and he believes that he might make a better choice to lead the country as the Republican nominee in 2020.

In a new profile of Bannon from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman, it’s reported that the former Trump campaign manager told a confidante that he’d consider a presidential run in 2020 if Trump chose not to run for a second term.

“Bannon has also remarked on the toll the office has taken on Trump, telling advisers his former boss has ‘lost a step,'” reports Sherman. “‘He’s like an 11-year-old child,’ Bannon joked to a friend in November.”

In his interviews with Sherman, Bannon always maintained that he had great respect for Trump — however, he didn’t hide the fact that he had regularly become frustrated at the direction the Trump White House had taken since the president won the election in 2016.

“I realize in hindsight I was just a staffer, and I’m not a good staffer,” Bannon admitted. “I had influence, I had a lot of influence, but just influence.”

One prominent Republican also said that Bannon hated giving Trump the final say on policy matters because Bannon believes Trump is “dumb and crazy.”

According to a report from the Daily Beast, health officials working in conjunction with the White House task force dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic are furious with Donald Trump for suggesting that they seek input from Dr. Mehmet Oz who has been making frequent appearances on Fox News.

The report states that Oz has already been speaking with some White House officials, including Trump’s administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Seema Verma, and that has some officials worried they will be forced to spend precious time having to deal with the celebrity doctor when they could be working on stemming the coronavirus tide that is killing Americans.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe rips his own network for airing ‘rambling illiterate’ Trump’s time-wasting press conference

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski unloaded on President Donald Trump for dragging his medical experts onstage to watch him push an unproven coronavirus treatment.

The "Morning Joe" co-hosts ripped the president for calling an unscheduled press briefing Sunday to promote hydroxychloroquine -- which White House officials and medical experts disagree over its effectiveness as a treatment for the deadly virus.

"This is when the idiots have been exposed for who they are in the time of America's greatest needs," Scarborough said. "Last night, the president attacked a governor, he pushed an unproven drug, and then he continued, saying that the buck doesn't stop here. I must ask, Mika, what did America get out of cable news networks running a two-hour rambling press conference, where he says the same exact things every time?"
