"Now I'm free. I've got my hands back on my weapons". Over the weekend, Mr. Trump described himself as a "very stable genius" and trumpeted his own mental acuity. While Bannon contributed more than his share to the loss of a Republican Senate seat in Alabama in the name of the "Trump agenda", his nemeses Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell succeeded in passing a hugely consequential piece of the Trump agenda, the tax reform bill.

Bannon also said in the book that the president had "lost his stuff". Other details are new and stinging to the White House, as they are titbits worthy of Robert Mueller's Russia investigation and raise questions about Trump's acuity.

Last week, Trump issued a blistering, four-paragraph takedown of Bannon, after the former adviser was quoted in a new anti-Trump book speaking ill of members of the president's family. Bannon presided over the right-wing website's rise in popularity and recognition, which also led to significant attention to controversial statements made on the site.

Steve Bannon, former chief strategist to President Donald Trump, has officially stepped down from the alt-right news site Breitbart just months after returning to the website following his ousting from the White House. In a tweet on the evening of January 4, 2018, Trump referred to Bannon as "Sloppy Steve".

In response to an invasion of privacy claim, McNamara wrote "Not only is this claim meritless; it is non-existent". "What are you talking about?" Who cares if it's totally accurate, the refrain goes, because it's telling an important story with hugely dire implications.

Despite the setback, Bannon has told confidants that he believes Trump, after a cooling-off period, will again seek his counsel, noting that the president often maintains contact with aides he has fired.

But Wolff told MSNBC's Morning Joe on Monday that was a lie, saying: "it was not directed at Manafort, it was directed directly at Don Jnr". "My evidence is the book, read the book". Nobody saw this book coming, nobody saw that it would be as big as it seems to be. Bannon never let other Republicans forget they had abandoned Trump en masse.

How effective is the flu vaccine? "When you side with a man you side with him, okay?" That same day, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue called Trump a "focused, determined. business guy" who "asks tough questions", and during a recent appearance on CBS's Face the Nation, C.I.A. Director Mike Pompeo insisted that he and Trump "engage in complex conversation about some of the most weighty matters facing the world".

When Trump blasted Bannon last week, Trump claimed that Bannon "only pretends to have influence".

"Fire and Fury" was published Friday, days early by popular demand and despite Trump's attorneys sending the publishers a cease and desist letter.

"Fox News will not be hiring Steve Bannon", a Fox News Channel spokesperson said in a statement first reported by The Wrap on Tuesday, and sent to TPM Wednesday.

"Andrew didn't give a s-t about politics", said Ben Shapiro, a former Breitbart News editor who runs the conservative news site Daily Wire.
