Steve Bannon Apologizes For Anti-Trump Comments in Michael Wolff Book

Fire And Fury writer says book will end Trump presidency

"Only because I went to the best colleges, or college. I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius...and a very stable genius at that!" "For Steve Mnuchin and Reince Priebus, he was an 'idiot.' For Gary Cohn, he was 'dumb as s--.' For H.R. McMaster he was a 'dope.' The list went on", according to the book.

"This is a book by a NY gossip columnist who has been known to fabricate stories, who says in his own preface that looseness with the truth is an elemental thread of the book", Cotton said on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos".

He added that his story "seems to present this presidency in such a way that it says he can't do his job".

"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.

"This morning you were tweeting about your mental state".

"My support is also unwavering for the president and his agenda - as I have shown daily in my national radio broadcasts, on the pages of Breitbart News and in speeches and appearances from Tokyo and Hong Kong to Arizona and Alabama", Bannon said.




The book paints President Donald Trump and his administration in an unflattering light and has dominated headlines all week, while also stoking Trump's and his allies' ire.

Trump tweeted Friday that he gave "Zero access to White House (actually turned him down many times) for author of phony book!"

As the president defended his tweets, which Twitter had already mocked in excess, #StableGenius trended to the top spot on Trump's favorite form of social media.

"When I have worked with the president and the people around him and Republican senators, he's been active, engaged and effective leader on issues like repealing the individual mandate of Obamacare, cutting taxes for working people, getting immigration under control, leading the fight against ISIS, and turning this economy around", he maintained.

Bannon, as Wolff wrote, said Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner's attendance at a previous Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer was "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".

"We will have 10 copies after January 20", she said.
