Steve Bannon Issues Apology as Trump Allies Flood the Airwaves

Tapper responded by saying that "the only person who's called himself a genius in the last week is the president".

Even as the White House continues to deny the legitimacy of Michael Wolff's book Fire and Fury, the Trump administration surrogates sent on television are stuck talking about it anyway-and when they try to avoid it, the chaos only expands. The amendment allows for the removal of a president if the vice president and a majority of the cabinet deem him physically or mentally unable to perform his duties.

Wolff has said the book was based on White House access, conversations with Trump and interviews with senior staffers, including Bannon.

Conservative political operative Corey Lewandowski, who managed Trump's campaign from January 2015 to June 2016, was similarly disturbed by Bannon's critiques.


President Trump applauded 32-year-old Stephen Miller for completing the two-pronged mission of going on CNN and yelling at Jake Tapper for the network's Trump coverage - while criticizing the president's newest enemy, Steve Bannon, as well.

Corey Lewandowski, Mr. Trump's former campaign manager, said Mr. Bannon had clearly crossed a line.

Members of the Trump administration and Republican lawmakers flooded the airwaves on Sunday to vouch for the president's intellectual bona fides and to attack Wolff. Ronald Reagan had the same problem and handled it well.

"He turned on his former colleague Steve Bannon and called his remarks in the book 'grotesque and vindictive.' And also said that CNN is 24 hours of anti-Trump hysteria".


"We urge that those around him, and our elected representatives in general, take urgent steps to restrain his behaviour and head off the potential nuclear catastrophe that endangers not only Korea and the United States but all of humankind", they wrote.

"Read the book", Wolff added, "and see if you don't feel alarmed". Bannon referred to a 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr and a Russian Federation lawyer at Trump Tower as "treasonous" and suggested that it was highly likely that Trump Jr told his father about the meeting.

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'. "So, he's not really a remotely credible source on any of it". He urged his followers to "watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!" The president later said on Twitter that Tapper "just got destroyed in his interview" with Miller.

"I'm getting to the issue of your fitness", was Miller's riposte.
