Bannon worked as the far-right news site's executive chairman since 2012, taking a break from 2016-2017 to serve as a part of President Donald Trump's campaign and in his cabinet. He tried to walk back his comments over the weekend, insisting that he was criticizing Paul Manafort, not Donald Trump Jr., but it was apparently too late to save face. According to ABC News, Bannon holds master's degrees from Georgetown University and Harvard Business School.

He repeatedly conflicted with members of Trump's inner circle, including Trump's son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner.

It would be inaccurate to say Wolff's exposé of a shambolic White House sparked a feud between the hypersensitive president and his former chief strategist, who is also one of the book's main sources.

Copies of the book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" by author Michael Wolff at the Book Culture book store in New York on Jan. 5, 2018.

As noted by The Washington Times: "Of course, that belief may be misplaced - and voila, a little untruth is born. Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!"

And that was too much for Trump. He gives Trump his regular intelligence briefings. "A classic example of hubris and beginning to think you are smarter than the boss". "My evidence is the book, read the book".

Now, amidst Trump trying to shut down the release of the instant best-seller, Wolff is making stops along his press tour with Stephen Colbert the latest to dig into the juicy, and possibly not entirely factual, book. But his remarks have done little to quell questions swirling about why the man with the nation's nuclear codes doesn't have to undergo more rigorous mental health evaluations.

A day earlier, seeking to refute Wolff's suggestion that he lacked stability, Trump called himself a "very stable genius". Though he and Mr Trump stayed in touch, in retrospect, an eventual falling-out seems to have been inevitable.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders this past week called such suggestions "disgraceful and laughable". "In other instances I have, through a consistency in the accounts and through sources I have come to trust, settled on a version of events I believe to be true". It didn't exist, OK?

He said his support for the president and his agenda was "unwavering". Then again, that is most likely the point: "echoing the raw immediacy and faux-outsider aesthetics that underlined Trump's entire campaign". Let's see them run on that platform this November and in 2020.

The reference angered the president, who last week lashed out at Bannon, saying he "lost his mind". "To reiterate, those comments were not aimed at Don Jr".
