Trump Reportedly Joked About Domestic Abuse Allegations Against Steve Bannon

President Trump Torpedoed Steve Bannon

In a new statement Thursday, billionaire conservative donor Rebekah Mercer said that she has not spoken to Bannon, the former White House chief strategist, in many months and that she continues to support President Trump.

But why does Bush call Bannon a "honey badger"?

He noted that Bannon had already unsettled many of his supporters when he said, "The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over", after he left his position in the administration in August.

During the campaign and since the election, one prominent voice at the side of president has been Steve Bannon, the current head of the right-wing Breitbart News.

There remained no doubt that the relationship between Trump and Bannon had soured when the president's lawyer Charles Harder threatened Bannon by serving him a cease and desist letter. President Donald Trump's broken with his populist, "alt-right" ally, Breitbart boss Stephen Bannon, over the fired presidential chief strategist's quotes, such as the one calling Donald Jr.'s infamous meeting with Russian operatives "treasonous". The letter warned Bannon to "cease and desist from any and all further disclosure of Confidential Information, disparagement of Mr. Trump, his family members, his or their companies, and/or the Company, and communication with the media, including but not limited to Mr. Wolff and any and all other journalists, reports, authors and bloggers".

"Was just told, by person present, that Trump referred to Bannon as "Bam Bam" after allegations of domestic abuse surfaced against him (Bannon) during the campaign", Eliana Johnson of Politico wrote on Twitter.

BANNON: The President of the United States is a great man.

The Washington Times put it more bluntly in a headline: "Are Bannon's Breitbart days numbered?"
