    Trump accused Bannon of being the White House leak! So Bannon accused Kushner and Ivanka of being the leaks from the White House, undermining the POTUS, and now Trump is accusing Bannon. The White House is now officially full of a bunch of pre-school children.

    "“Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was,” the president continued. “It is the only thing he does well. Steve was rarely in a one-on-one meeting with me and only pretends to have had influence to fool a few people with no access and no clue, whom he helped write phony books.”"

    Trump turns on Bannon: 'He lost his mind'

    Let's take a look at that particular remark from Trump:
    • "[Bannon] spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media. It is the only thing he does well."
      • Be that as it may, he obviously did so with Trump's approbation.
      • Wow! So which set of Trump's (his Administration's/WH's) lies are we to believe, the old ones or the new ones? Either:
        • Trump's claim here is true, in which case it's a tacit attestation from Trump himself that his WH has actively engaged in disinformation, or
        • Trump's claim here is false, in which case, it's is ineffectual as a basis for one's discounting Bannon's.
    What remains to be discovered is which leaks were lies, if any were.

    "leaking false information to the media"

    Is it really a leak- if its false information?

    Yes, that's an interesting phrase. "Leaking false information".

    That's how the worm turns in the Trump brain.

    Trump says he's 'honored' by White House leaks that show staff fighting for his 'love'

    "We have two leaks," Trump said, according to a pool report. "You have the leaks coming out of intelligence and various departments having to do with Syria, having to do with all sorts of different places, having to do frankly with North Korea. And those are very serious. And then, you have the leaks where people want to love me, and they're all fighting for love. Those are little inner-White House leaks. They're not very important. But actually, I'm somewhat honored by them."

    Trump is freaked.

    Some things reported in the book:

    Ivanka is as smart as a brick.

    Trump horrified he won.

    Mike Flynn said no problem taking the money because there was a ZERO chance they would win so taking Russian money would be no problem.

    Of course Trump Jr. took news of the "secret" Russia meeting directly to Trump.

    Trump Jr. is a traitor.

    And so much more that I've forgotten. But don't worry, this book will be reported AD NASEUM!

    Now is the time for Mueller to call on testimony from Bannon. I think that some very damning information is now available. Real funny situation here. Now the alt right 'Conservatives' are faced with a choice between Bannon and Trump. And both have alienated themselves from the mainstream GOP. And both have done much to lose the GOP's majority in both houses. LOL Really funny in a sinister kind of way.

    For Bannon to accuse Trumps daughter of undermining her father is fully retarded, or Bannon is the leaker and is scared of going to prison
