President Donald Trump attacked Breitbart chairman Steve Bannon again Friday after disparaging comments he made in a new book by author Michael Wolff.
Michael Wolff is a total loser who made up stories in order to sell this really boring and untruthful book. He used Sloppy Steve Bannon, who cried when he got fired and begged for his job. Now Sloppy Steve has been dumped like a dog by almost everyone. Too bad! https://t.co/mEeUhk5ZV9

Wolff’s book includes supposed accounts of conversations with dozens of White House aides and paints a picture of chaos during the first days of the Trump administration. Prominently featured in the book is former chief strategist Steve Bannon. These comments include a personal insult of Ivanka Trump’s intelligence and a suggestion that Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer offering information on then candidate Hillary Clinton was “treasonous.”
The president used his nickname for Bannon — “Sloppy Steve” — again displaying his anger over the book’s publication. Trump also made reference to Bannon’s loss of donor support from the Mercer family who publicly rebuked him.
Trump excoriated Bannon after the initial comments were revealed Wednesday in a statement declaring that Bannon “not only lost his job, he lost his mind.”
I authorized Zero access to White House (actually turned him down many times) for author of phony book! I never spoke to him for book. Full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don’t exist. Look at this guy’s past and watch what happens to him and Sloppy Steve!
