Steve Bannon textbook lesson on not to screw with President Trump
Steve Bannon is a textbook lesson on not to screw with President Trump. Bannon began 2017 in a position of power as President Trump’s chief strategist. In August Bannon was fired as chief strategist at that time Trump tweeted the below.
“I want to thank Steve Bannon for his service. He came to the campaign during my run against Crooked Hillary Clinton – it was great! Thanks S.”
After his August firing Bannon went back to his position as Chairman of Breitbart publishing. He also continued his war against the Washington establishment. Bannon hung his political hat on a kooky Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. Then Roy Moore shows up on election day on his horse looking like a ridiculous cowboy and loses. Bannon’s stock drops even further.
The final break from Trump came after Mr. Bannon was quoted in a new book disparaging the president’s children, asserting that Donald Trump Jr. had been “treasonous” in meeting with Russians and calling Ivanka Trump “dumb as a brick.” Mr. Trump, described by his spokeswoman as “furious, disgusted,” fired back by saying that Mr. Bannon had “lost his mind.”

Then in January of 2018 Bannon was forced out at Breitbart because of the very public fight with Trump over the book comments.
“When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind,” Trump said of Bannon in a statement the White House issued. “Now that he is on his own, Steve is learning that winning isn’t as easy as I make it look.
Trump also said that Bannon “cried like a baby” when he was fired. Steve Bannon started 2017 at the top of the hill and ended in the lowest of low. Many have attacked Trump on policy and he may or may not remain friends with them. But Steve Bannon attacked his family and for that he is irrelevant now.
