Allegations are getting nastier as the mud continues to fly between Breitbart.com CEO Steve Bannon and the White House.


Mediaite.com reported Thursday that Politico's Eliana Johnson has learned that President Donald Trump nicknamed Bannon "Bam Bam" after allegations surfaced that Bannon beat his then-wife at his "meth pad" former residence in Miami, FL.

"Was just told, by person present, that Trump referred to Bannon as 'Bam Bam' after allegations of domestic abuse surfaced against him (Bannon) during the campaign," said Johnson on Twitter.

She continued, "Trump told ppl: 'Don’t worrry abt Bam Bam, he’s locked away in a room working 20 hrs a day. He never comes out.'”

Hostilities have exploded between Bannon and the president since excerpts leaked on Wednesday from Michael Wolff's splashy new book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.
