An interesting facet of this apology is that Bannon is in no way denying that he made these comments, simply that he is sorry and that he regrets his lackadaisical response once his statements became public.

Journalist Michael Wolff's bombshell new Fire and Fury explained how Donald Trump, his campaign, and even his wife, did not expect to win the 2016 presidential election.

Trump, in a series of morning posts on Twitter, said his Democratic critics and the U.S. news media were bringing up the "old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming mental stability and intelligence" since they had not been able to bring him down in other ways.

Calling his support for the president and his agenda "unwavering", Bannon said in a statement that "I remain ready to stand in the breech for this president's efforts to make America great again". Now Sloppy Steve has been dumped like a dog by nearly everyone.

In October, Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) called the White House an "adult day care center" with a volatile president who could spark World War III. Professor Michael Wesley, Dean of the Australian National University's College of Asia and the Pacific, said he had not yet read the instant best-seller, replete with tales of dysfunction from inside the White House, but "from what I have read in terms of excerpts ..." Now, after he has already been called by those close to him a semi-literate, unqualified moron, who is quickly losing his mental faculties, what can possibly be said to move the needle?

"I've had to put up with the Fake News from the first day I announced that I would be running for President".

Reagan died in 2004, at age 93, from pneumonia complicated by the Alzheimer's disease that had progressively clouded his mind. "It's in his imagination", Trump said Saturday.

Other worldwide relations experts say the Wolff book is only likely to confirm what informed Washington-watchers already know.

Chatter about Trump's mental fitness for office has intensified in recent months on cable news shows and among Democrats in Congress.

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, said that she is at the White House once a week, and "no one questions the stability of the president". White House spokesman Sarah Sanders said earlier in the week that the book includes "mistake after mistake after mistake". Reagan announced his diagnosis in a letter to the American people in 1994, more than five years after leaving the White House.
