Top White House Aide calls Steve Bannon's comments in book 'grotesque'

08 Enero, 2018, 00:51 | Author: Earnest Bishop

Tapper then called Miller "obsequious, ' saying he "wasted enough of our viewers" time" and that there was 'only one viewer he was concerned about'.

In the book, Bannon predicted that the special counsel investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation would "crack" the younger Trump "like an egg on national TV".

On NBC's Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd asked Wolff if he left out anything in the book that would have been favourable to Trump because it didn't fit the narrative.

The White House has been on the defensive since excerpts of the book were published last week with the president and his aides scrambling to discredit both its portrayal of Trump and the author's methods.

"I've had to put up with the Fake News from the first day I announced that I would be running for President". Ronald Reagan had the same problem and handled it well. In the book, however, Bannon is quoted as saying that Mueller's investigation would probably focus on money laundering and that "they're going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV". But before he could do so, the White House released a personal statement from Trump, who claimed that his former adviser had "lost his mind".

What, did you think Trump was at home reading a book or something?!

In recent says, Bannon has tried to convince allies that all will be okay - even texting "Onward!" to one of them - but seems jolted and "even more manic than normal", in the words of one person who has spoken to him. He also spared no love for Trump's daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.

In his book, Wolff relied heavily on on-the-record interviews with Bannon, who was critical of other White House aides and Trump's children.

Pressing Miller on the latter topic, Tapper rattled off several issues Bannon had a hand in, such as the Muslim travel ban and the decisions to pull out of the Paris climate accord and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

As for Steve Bannon, Miller said that his role was "greatly exaggerated" within the White House and that "It's tragic and unfortunate that Steve would make these grotesque comments so out of touch with reality and obviously so vindictive".

Tapper grew exhausted of Miller repeating pro-Trump and anti-Bannon talking points and called the aide's constant interruptions "hysterical, ' as he cut the interview short by announcing, 'I think I've wasted enough of my viewers" time'.

"Don't be condescending, Jake", Miller shot back, going on to talk about how unbelievable, in his opinion, Trump is as president. He urged his followers to "watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!"
