THE TRUMP ORGANIZATION, 1600 PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE NW, WASHINGTON — Donald Trump is really good at getting attention from the media.
As our readers know, associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones has unfettered access to Trump and his entourage, particularly his chief strategist, Steve Bannon.
Bannon, the former top guy at Breitbart news, was a film producer and filmmaker before he joined Breitbart. In 2004, he made an adulatory documentary about Ronald Reagan called In the Face of Evil: Reagan’s War in Word and Deed.
As the controversy about Attorney General Jeff Sessions continues to draw attention away from whatever unmerited praise Trump received from his speech on February 28 to a Joint Session of Congress, Trump has resorted to tweetstorms to divert attention from Sessionsgate/Russiagate.
Yesterday, Trump Issued a five-part tweet claiming, with no evidence, that, during the 2016 election campaign, President Obama tapped his phones.
Jones was with Bannon and Trump as the two sat down together and Bannon said, “Let’s make a movie about you.”
“Our movie will start with your early life as a hard-working apprentice in your father’s real estate business and how your father’s company was unjustly persecuted by the Justice Department for housing discrimination, and how you have always been adored by black people. We’ll feature your star performance at New York Military Academy and your brilliance as a businessman, and how you made millions of people rich when you founded Trump University and, of course, how you developed high-end resorts and casinos as part of your project to make the world a better place, and how you enthralled your followers at your rallies last year by telling them what a raw deal they had in life.”
“I like this, Steve,” Trump said. “I want you to start work on this right away, and the Trump Organization will get 95% of the box office.”
“I’m ok with that, Sir, as long as I get credit for making you the media star which you are.”
“It’s a deal,” Trump said.
