I have on occasion written in the past that “sometimes I hate it when I’m right.” But then again, sometimes I joyfully roll around in being right like a rube on a bed in a suite in Las Vegas. This is one of those times. Last week I write an article chronicling how Steve Bannon could be more dangerous to Trump by what he could say to Robert Mueller than anything he could do to damage him by running primary opponents to GOP incumbents in 2018. Bannon hasn’t even talked to Mueller yet, but it seems like Mueller may be the only one he hasn’t gas bagged for.
Apparently Bannon just wrote a book. Or, I should say he more likely babbled like a lunatic while someone else wrote, since I doubt Steve Bannon can spell his name correctly without sneaking a peek at his drivers license. I wrote a book too, and I think mine is better, because ir pokes fun at mental crustaceans like Bannon. Full disclosure, I wouldn’t read his crap on a dare, not only because I find tha man personally repulsive, but more importantly, I wouldn’t give him a penny if he cleaned my windshield with a bucket and squeegee. But that doesn’t mean I can’t reference someone else who apparently had no other option than to muddle through his crap.
The main thrust of my previous article was that Bannon, when speaking to Mueller, would do everything in his power to bury Jared Kushner because of his personal hatred for Jared and Ivanka. Bannon is a Lamprey, and Trump was nothing more than the shark that he managed to hitch a ride on. Now that Trump has thrown him off, Bannon has more loyalty to his Goodwill reject wardrobe than he has to Trump. And in his new tome, Bannon is jumping around in front of Mueller like Donkey when Shrek needed a guide to the castle, “Pick me! Pick me! Oh, OH, pick ME!”
Apparently the UK publication The Guardian obtained an advance copy of at least some of Bannon’s new literary wet dream. It seems to be chock-a-block full of cheap smears on just about everybody Bannon has ever met in his life. But one particular passage caught my interest immediately;
“Last month it was reported that federal prosecutors had subpoenaed records from Deutsche Bank, the German financial institution that has lent hundreds of millions of dollars to the Kushner property empire. Bannon continues: ‘It goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner shit. The Kushner shit is greasy. They’re going to go right through that. They’re going to roll those two guys up and say play me or trade me.’ ”
The “those two” that Bannon is referring to are of course Kushner and Don Jr. Bannon’s assessment of Trump Jr wasn’t much more flattering than his feelings for Kushner. He is quoted as saying ” They’re going to crack Don Jr like an egg on national tv.” Frankly, I find this unlikely, as neither Grassley, Nunez, Goudy or Burr, the committee chairmen, are likely to want to publicly embarrass Trump by letting the Democrats draw and quarter either Donnie redux or Kushner in an open televised setting. But Bannon is right. Mueller will most definitely play Trump Jr and Kushner off against each other, especially in their recollections of the June 9th meeting with the Russians. And considering the fact that Kushners father paid a hooker to screw his brother in law while he taped it, just so he could show it to his own sister for revenge purposes, I don’t see Jared suddenly discovering a sense of moral honor for his own brother in law, especially since kushner knows what the inside of a federal prison looks like from having visited his father in one.
Bannon’s new book cannot be anything but a clear shot across the Inglorious Basterds bow. And remember, Bannon is a former military intelligence officer, so he likely knows how to separate te wheat from the chaff. If he has any actual meat, he’ll serve it up to Mueller on a fine china plate, “with some farva beans, and a nice Chianti,” and then gleefully report on it on Breitbart. Trump forgot the Golden Rule, “When you dine with the devil, don’t be surprised when you get stuck with the check.”
