‘He lost his mind’: Trump lashes out at Bannon — but doesn’t deny Don Jr committed ‘treason’

Published

on

President Donald Trump angrily lashed out at former top political strategist Steve Bannon on Wednesday over the multiple explosive claims Bannon made in a new book by journalist Michael Wolff.

“When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind,” Trump wrote. “Steve was a staffer who worked for me after I had already won the nomination by defeating seventeen candidates, often described as the most talented field ever assembled in the Republican party.”

Trump also hammered Bannon over his decision to enthusiastically endorse failed Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who lost last month’s shocking special election in Alabama.

“Now that he is on his own, Steve is learning that winning isn’t as easy as I make it look,” Trump said. “Steve had very little to do with our historic victory, which was delivered by the forgotten men and women of this country. Yet Steve had everything to do with the loss of a Senate seat in Alabama held for more than thirty years by Republicans.”

Even though Trump attacked his former political strategist, he did not specifically rebut Bannon’s most explosive charge — namely, that his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., had committed “treason” by meeting with Russian government officials at Trump Tower in 2016.

"It’s also striking, George, that every defense falls apart almost before the end of a single news cycle," anchor Nicolle Wallace reported. "Everything that people have said in an effort to defend him has collapsed under the weight of the president’s conduct."

"What we just heard the president say is delusional," Conway replied. "And it’s debilitating."
