What's worse than a turncoat? Maybe a backpeddling coward. Over the course of the last week, "Sloppy Steve" Bannon became both. Michael Wolff's new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, quoted Bannon dissing President Trump and fam (particularly Donald Trump Jr.) and categorized last year's meeting at Trump Tower as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.” Ouch.
Face the Nation categorized Bannon's statement as one "of regret," and noted that there were a couple key words missing from it, namely "sorry" and "apology."
Bannon seemed to be trying to ease tensions with Trump and company and divorce himself from the comments he made in Wolff's book.
Steve should hold a press conference where he explains his motivation for being so disloyal and so very stupid. Perhaps within the next week we’ll all be asking, “Steve Who?”— Martin Levine (@Martin0988) January 7, 2018
