Donald Trump Dumps Steve Bannon
In episode 446 of “The Ben Shapiro Show,” the conservative political commentator, columnist and accomplished attorney breaks down the last week in the relationship between President Donald J. Trump and former confidant/White House Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon.
Bannon joined Trump’s 2016 presidential bid in August of 2016 and many – including, at times, the president himself – have attributed a significant portion of Trump’s success to this partnership. Flash forward to just over a year and a half later, and the two could not be farther apart, as their relationship now seems to have soured beyond the point of no return.
The entire affair stems from the recent release of “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” a new book by author Michael Wolff. The book features a frankly surprising number of controversial (and often downright inflammatory) statements by Bannon targeting not only Trump but also members of his family like Donald Trump, Jr. and Ivanka Trump. Trump almost immediately took to Twitter, “salting the Earth” by not just disavowing Bannon but saying that when he “lost his job, he also lost his mind.”
The move was so fast – and so fierce – that many Bannon allies are still trying to figure out exactly how to proceed.
Trump’s destruction of Steve Bannon and “take no prisoners” attitude in the wake of the “Fire and Fury” book are just one of the many topics that Ben Shaprio discusses on the latest episode of his show. Watch the video below for more.
