Did he or didnt he? Trump contradicts himself on whether he knew Steve Bannon

"President Donald Trump wavered in his support for White House aide and strategist Steve Bannon in an interview with The New York Post on Tuesday, following stories of a rift forming between Bannon and Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

"I like Steve, but you have to remember he was not involved in my campaign until very late," Trump said."

...
Trump announced the hiring of Bannon and adviser Kellyanne Conway as part of the Trump campaign on Aug. 17, 2016. Here’s what he said at that time:

"I have known Steve and Kellyanne both for many years. They are extremely capable, highly qualified people who love to win and know how to win," Trump said. "I believe we’re adding some of the best talents in politics, with the experience and expertise needed to defeat Hillary Clinton in November and continue to share my message and vision to Make America Great Again. I am committed to doing whatever it takes to win this election, and ultimately become President because our country cannot afford four more years of the failed Obama-Clinton policies which have endangered our financial and physical security."

So, in Trump’s own words he either "didn’t know Steve," or he has "known Steve … for many years."

One of those claims is clearly wrong."

The weasel on Trumps head whispers in his ear on these occasions.

1. This jackass continues to display...

a remarkable disassociation from the truth and facts.

He really is a pathological liar and is quite obviously a sociopath.

14. Malignant narcissist

In his world, others exist only to reflect his own imagined glory.

3. "Bannon? Bannon? Oh, that guy. I barely even know him."

This is not a good omen for Bannon's continuing to work at the WH, but Bannon is a vengeful bastard, just like SCROTUS himself, and he knows a lot. Maybe too much.

8. Interesting observation!

Quite a crew Trump has brought with him.

Lots of daggers up sleeves.

9. Good point. Bannon has to know too much.

Otoh, he may be far too compromised himself.

"I have known Steve and Kellyanne both for many years." Since being introduced in 2011 and having a continuing relationship thereafter with Bannon, who early on thought he could use Rump to make a big, national bang. With his relationships with Rump and Mercer, Roger Stone, many others, how likely is it that he wasn't very aware of most that went on in Rump's camp and even occasionally involved in some way?

16. As suggested

Bannon will likely turn on Trump if ousted.

4. He also met Vladimir Putin in a green room although he never met him. Met him a bunch of times, but

he's never even met him. They've had tremendous conversations in spite of having never spoken...... Or something like that.

Staggering.

6. Similar to excerpts I have seen from 45's various depositions

When asked about his knowledge of a person or activity, he appears to experience varying degrees of memory loss......

Replies all contain phrases like:

I barely knew of...

I Do not recall interacting personally with....

I have Heard the name but would not recognize the person..

I Had no knowledge of ....

I Was never made aware of...

My children handled that transaction...

I Never saw any indication of possible.....

We may have spoken on the phone...


"Believe me...."

12. He is obviously in

Far over his head.

And I believe his complete lack of political expertise will bring him down, hopefully sooner than later.

7. This "thing" is such a soap opera...

Or is it a reality show with consequences?
If this ever becomes a made for TV movie or a Hollywood movie, Alec Baldwin should play tЯump and Russel Crowe (after a 50 lb wt gain) should play Bannon.. He could be his doppelgänger..
Who would play (HeWent2)Jared? iVanka? PEИҪE? McCarthy has SPЄЙҪЄЯ locked...

13. I wonder how all this is going over with Robert and Rebekah Mercer?

Bannon and Brietbart are their babies after all. Are just going to let Trump abuse their power after they worked so hard to get him elected?
