Bannon canon blasts Kushner and Ivanka

Ex Trump adviser Steve Bannon has fired a fusillade at Donald Trump’s daughter and son in law in an interview with Vanity Fair. This could be a part of revenge utu for being dumped from the White House.

NZH: Ivanka Trump called Steve Bannon a liar in White House feud

The internal tensions of Donald Trump’s White House have been laid bare by the man who used to be his top adviser.

In a revealing interview with Vanity Fair, Steve Bannon, who was Trump’s political strategist before he was pushed out of the job in August, got remarkably candid about the simmering rivalries that plagued the President’s inner circle.

Bannon used the interview with Vanity Fair to repeatedly slam the couple, referring to them disparagingly as “Javanka”.

Things soon turned ugly as Bannon and the President’s daughter let loose at each other.

“She’s the queen of leaks,” Bannon reportedly said.

“You’re a f***ing liar!” Ivanka Trump fired back.

The interview revealed exactly how toxic the relationship became, and how much contempt Bannon still has for “Javanka”.

Bannon said it was clear Kushner, whom the President gave a wide portfolio of responsibilities, was in way over his head.

It was very risky to give Kushner huge responsibilities with virtually no relevant experience.

“He doesn’t know anything about the hobbits or the deplorables,” Bannon said, referring to Donald Trump’s voters. “The railhead of all bad decisions is the same railhead: Javanka.”

Bannon said Kushner’s decision to hold meetings with Russians during the election campaign may have given the impression the Trump camp sought Moscow’s help.

An impression that the is under investigation by the FBI, with Kushner apparently a prime target.

The article also highlights how any hopes the pair had of a decent working relationship were over after FBI Director James Comey was fired in May and Kushner’s involvement in that decision.

In an earlier interview, Bannon called it “the dumbest political decision in modern political history”.

The president made that decision, so Bannon is letting lose at the Trump political dynasty.

Employing the services of Bannon in his campaign and then in the White House administration may end up competing for being one of the dumbest political decision in modern political history. Revenge fire from the Bannon canon may inflict serious damage, and could even end up sinking the Trump ship.

Who needs enemies when you have ex-friends intent on turning dirty tactics against you?

    Bannon has lost a lot of his influence after the Judge Moore debacle and the passing of tax reform further pulled the rug out.
