Steve Bannon Apologizes For Controversial Comments About Donald Trump Jr

Steve Bannon Apologizes For Controversial Comments About Donald Trump Jr

During a visit to Camp David Saturday, President Donald Trump doubled down on his morning tweets in which he called himself "like, really smart" and "a very stable genius".

Trump said he never granted Wolff an interview for the book and blamed former adviser Steve Bannon, who he called "Sloppy Steve", for granting Wolff access at the White House.

Then I hear this guy that doesn't know me at all, by the way, didn't interview me, said he interviewed me for three hours in the White House.

Trump conceded that he participated in what he called a "quick interview" with the author "a long time ago" for an article.

Michael Wolff, the author of "Fire and Fury", said Sunday that the 25th Amendment, which would allow the president's cabinet to remove him from office, is "alive every day in the White House". Bannon's former boss labeled the media executive "Sloppy Steve" and issued an official statement saying that when he "lost his job, he also lost his mind".

"I think one of the interesting effects of the book so far is a very clear emperor-has-no-clothes effect", Wolff said.

Lawyers for the USA president also sent a cease and desist letter to Bannon accusing him of violating a confidentiality agreement for the disparaging remarks that appear in the book about Trump and his family.

New Wind Chill Advisory in effect through Saturday
We finally get out of the deep freeze next week with highs potentially in the upper 40s by Friday with the chance of rain showers. After that, temperatures warm to around the 20 degree mark for Sunday afternoon under mostly sunny skies.

Bannon said in a statement released on Sunday that his comments were directed at Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign manager, and not aimed at the president's son.

Wolff told "Today" show host Savannah Guthrie on Friday that he "absolutely spoke to the President" while working on "Fire and Fury".

Bandy Lee, the Yale psychiatrist who last month traveled to Capitol Hill to meet with a group of Democratic lawmakers - and one Republican - to brief them on Trump's mental health, told Vox's Eliza Barclay recently that she believes special counsel Robert Mueller's indictments brought about a "mental health crisis" for Trump, who is not able to cope well with ordinary stresses.

"Donald Trump, Jr.is both a patriot and a good man", read Bannon's statement, which CNN obtained Sunday from a source close to Bannon. "Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad s***, and I happen to think it's all of that, you should have called the Federal Bureau of Investigation immediately". "And what I was heartened by because I talk about fake news and the fake news media - was really that so numerous people that I talk about in terms of fake news actually came to the defense of this great administration and even myself because they know the author and they know he's a fraud". Now Sloppy Steve has been dumped like a dog by nearly everyone.

"Suddenly everywhere people are going 'oh my God, it's true, he has no clothes.' That's the background to the perception and the understanding that will finally end...this presidency".

"The story that I have told seems to present this presidency in such a way that it say he can't do his job". She is among a number of professionals in the field calling for an emergency evaluation of Trump's mental state. "I have no reason to question his mental fitness".
