The start of 2018 has been rocky for the President. If you are to believe the mainstream media. The release of Michael Wolff’s book suggests that many who serve Trump doubt his competence.
Despite many in the media blasting the book for inaccuracies, quotes from it have spread. Media outlets have attacked Stephen Bannon, once aid to President Trump. Wolff’s questionable book claims Bannon called Donald Trump Jr. treasonous, for a short meeting he had with a Russian lawyer.
For days the liberal media jumped on this “story.” It seemed like Trump was turning on his former adviser. Only now has Bannon come out to set the record straight. And it only further proves Wolff’s book for what it is: garbage.
Stephen K. Bannon, executive chair of Breitbart News and former White House chief strategist, issued the following statement on Sunday
“Donald Trump, Jr. is both a patriot and a good man. He has been relentless in his advocacy for his father and the agenda that has helped turn our country around.
“My support is also unwavering for the president and his agenda…
“My comments were aimed at Paul Manafort, a seasoned campaign professional with experience and knowledge of how the Russians operate. He should have known they are duplicitous, cunning and not our friends. To reiterate, those comments were not aimed at Don Jr…
“I regret that my delay in responding to the inaccurate reporting regarding Don Jr has diverted attention from the president’s historical accomplishments in the first year of his presidency.”
We reported early on that Bannon’s support for the president hadn’t faltered. The quotes from Wolff’s book were taken out of context and distorted. Much like the rest of this “explosive” book. Media outlets and even liberal journalists have slammed the book for inaccuracies. Are we really surprised it distorted Bannon’s words?
Bannon has been one of Trump’s strongest supporters. The liberal media feared and hated him (and still do). That’s why they were so eager to find something that suggested Bannon turned on Trump. Even though it was false, they pushed it like fact. They are fake news, after all.
Bannon’s statement strongly defended Trump and his son. It backs what Trump and his administration has been saying all along. It only further proves that, despite minor disagreements, Bannon continues to defend the President of the United States.
Make no mistake, the liberal media will ignore this statement. They will continue to push the idea that Bannon “betrayed” Trump. Anything to undermine our President and ignore the work he’s done. But the media has long ago destroyed its credibility. Michael Wolff is just one of many wolves in sheep’s clothing.
Why should we ever believe them?
