Not about the pee-pee tapes: The Egoist-in-Chief has found love in some leaks.
“We have two leaks,” Trump said, according to a pool report. “You have the leaks coming out of intelligence and various departments having to do with Syria, having to do with all sorts of different places, having to do frankly with North Korea. And those are very serious. And then, you have the leaks where people want to love me, and they’re all fighting for love. Those are little inner-White House leaks. They’re not very important. But actually, I’m somewhat honored by them.”
DeepState Leaks Bad! Even when imaginary. Devoted Blobfish Leaks Good!
Former Breitbart.com CEO turned senior White House official Steve Bannon’s plan to smear and discredit President Donald Trump’s national security adviser H. R. McMaster has backfired on Bannon and left him more isolated than ever among his fellow staffers, said Politico on Friday.
In recent weeks, Breitbart.com has featured a stream of hit-pieces aimed at McMaster and designed to portray him as a Democratic loyalist and insufficiently devoted to Trump’s “America First” vision for the world.
“The attacks on McMaster have put Bannon in an especially awkward position with his new boss, retired Marine general John Kelly,” said Politico’s Tara Palmeri, who spoke to 10 White House officials about the matter.
Be that as it may, Bannon and Gorka will outlast people like Kelly and Tillerson.
