Et tu, Brute?
Regretting his deeds and words, Steve Bannon continues to support President Trump.
He admits that he should have responded sooner to any unfavorable comments made in, the now rather well known book, “Fire and Fury.”
Bannon said in a statement, “My support is also unwavering for the president and his agenda.”
I think Bannon had crossed the line with the book with statements of the president’s son Donald Trump Jr., who also was a part of the campaign.
Don’t go after a man’s child. It will bring anger.
Bannon also said in the statement, “Donald Trump Jr. is both a patriot and a good man. He has been relentless in his advocacy for his father and the agenda that has helped turn our country around.”
He also said, “I regret that my delay in responding to the inaccurate reporting regarding Don Jr. has diverted attention from the president’s historical accomplishments in the first year of his presidency.”
Trump was infuriated with comments Bannon made to author Michael Wolff describing a meeting between Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.”
“Sloppy Steve” is new name President Trump has given to Bannon. “Sloppy Steve” is said to have cried when the president fired him last year from his White House strategist job.
Bannon, claimed in the statement, said that his description of the meeting was not aimed at Trump’s son but at former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.
We’ll never know what Bannon actually said to Michael Wolff. We do know that liars will always be liars even after you indicate remorse.
Stabbing a friend in the back is also not a good characteristic to have.
I believe that President Trump was bewildered that he was betrayed. That’s what the look on his face says. Trump knows he did nothing to Bannon to deserve this.
