Breitbart Readers Blast Bannon For Betraying Trump

Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon burned a major bridge Wednesday with President Trump, after it was revealed the current Breitbart executive provided damning quotes for a new book on the Trump administration by Michael Wolff.

Bannon claimed that the President and his allies engaged in “treasonous” and “unpatriotic” behavior, claims that make it seem like he’s also burning bridges with his very own readers.

    Trump put his family in the front line, and they didn’t always seem to fire in the direction ordered by Trump. Hence I think Bannon’s criticism was warranted. Sooner or later, the President will have to decide between his own principles and those different ones of his closest family. A rock and a hard place.

    If I were a famous person, I would record every interview with journalists, just to keep them honest.

  • This clash between Trump and Bannon is very sad for us Deplorables. As far as I am concerned, that spells the end of my trust – not for Trump, but for Bannon (he should have kept his mouth shut, even if he was hurt). Now I wonder whether I will continue reading the news on Breitbart – or is it going to become an anti-Trump medium? Who is the owner of that publication? Will Bannon be kicked out of it, having become a liability rather than an asset?

      I agree!

    As predicted by Ben Shapiro.

    Trashy book quotes seldom get the syntax right if eyes are on the cash registers. Bannon’s real quote is much more nuanced and careful but just as damaging to the Trump family’s amateur shenanigans.

      Seems family is a problem for every president.

    Being aware of how much fake news is around and how journalists are famous for either misquoting or taking out of context what people say (had more than once personal experience), I hesitate to jump on the band wagon. What I do know is that Trump was elected because of the contract/platform he endorsed and vowed to honour, not because of himself. To date Bannon seems to be about the only one who remains faithful to that contract/platform, and that Trump keeps drifting away from it is concerning. A prime example is immigration, especially illegals, which has lost its priority status with Trump. He also appears to be embracing globalism more than Make America Great Again. I have also had concerns about the role, influence and power accorded his daughter and son-in-law, neither of whom would pass for conservatives. Still without strong proof I don’t see any of their actions being treasonous. For treasonous one cannot beat Obama and his administration along with Clinton.

      Bannon is now BFF with a Chinese billionaire activist. Drudge is not really a Trump supporter.

      I’m no fan of Ivanka and hubby either.

        I did not know that about Bannon. Still even though I am not American, my concern remains whether or not Trump betrays his contract/platform with the American people. There are signs that is guilty of that, especially when it pertains to the most important issue: immigration/illegals/refugees. I believe most who voted for him, voted more for the contract or platform rather than the man per se. Of course I am not suggesting that Clinton would have been better, but I had hoped to see the country returned to its original state and steered away from the cliff of globalism. Only if America is made great again does Canada have any hope of survival. That may sound contradictory, but it is fact.

          I agree and I don’t know if the DACCA issue can be resolved without some form of bipartisan agreement between Trump, Reps and Dems. What does he do about California or even New York when those state gov’ts. openly defy him? I hope other areas of immigration can be cleaned up.
          If stupid Cdns. vote in Trudeau again I doubt if Canada is going to survive. Also, Trump will only be around for eight years max and then what happens. At least Americans are armed so will march on Washington if necessary.
