Breitbart News’ top gun, Steve Bannon, has launched a new political party.
This, after Donald Trump tweeted that his former chief strategist and former campaign CEO has lost his mind (https://www.politico.com/story/2018/01/03/steve-bannon-trump-conflict-322278?lo=ap_c1). The two got into a p___y fight after Bannon made disparaging remarks about Son-in-Law-in-Chief Jared Kushner and First Daughter Ivanka. Notably, Bannon said that Ivanka is “dumb as a brick.” He has also predicted that Trump Sr. will be indicted by Robert Mueller and that Kushner is likely to be indicted for money laundering.
And now one of Trump’s galaxy of lawyers has issued a cease and desist notice to Bannon, but Bannon, who claims that he represents Trump’s deplorable base, calls Trump “a great man.” Go figure.
In Michael Wolff's tell-all book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, which will be released on January 9, Bannon said it was treasonous, as well as unpatriotic, of Trump Jr. to hold a meeting in Trump Tower in June 2016 with a Russian lawyer who had promised to provide dirt on Hillary Clinton.
Bannon, who often fought with Kushner, says that Kushner and Ivanka had agreed that Ivanka, if the opportunity should arise, will be the first woman president (http://www.cnn.com/2018/01/03/politics/ivanka-trump-presidency-book/index.html).
Trump’s press secretary, Sarah Huckabee, claimed, in her usual spitfire, unsmiling, and staccato style, that Trump and Bannon, formerly the best of friends, have stopped communicating with each other.
Associate solitary reporter Susanna Sherman, one of our crack investigators, has somehow managed to infiltrate Bannon’s network. On a highly confidential basis, Sherman’s secret sources at Breitbart told her that Bannon, who single-handedly managed to propel Democrat Doug Jones to the Senate from Alabama, has filed papers (either fake or real) establishing a new political party here in the land of the free home of the brave.
Although uncredited, Sherman co-authored Joshua Green’s Devil’s Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency (2017).
“He’s calling it The White People’s Party,” Sherman told us. “Richard Spencer is likely to be named the White People’s Party’s top fundraiser.”
In other news provided to us by our chief religion reporter, Rev. Jim Bob Hobarto, Trump tweeted that Mitt Romney should succeed LDS President Thomas Monson, the president of the Mormon Church, who died on Tuesday at the age of 90. “Mitt should stay in Utah and lead his nontrinitarian church, and that way I won’t have to deal with him if he takes the seat of my close personal friend Orrin Hatch."
