In new book Steve Bannon states that Donald Trump is only worth about 50 million and that he is “just another scumbag.”

This comes from the second book by Michael Wolff on the Trump presidency called “Siege: Trump Under Fire.”

The first was called “Fire and Fury.”

Courtesy of The Guardian:

In a key passage, Bannon is reported as saying he believes investigations of Donald Trump’s financial history will provide proof of the underlying criminality of his eponymous company.

Assessing the president’s exposure to various investigations, many seeded by the special counsel Robert Mueller during his investigation of Russian election interference, Wolff writes: “Trump was vulnerable because for 40 years he had run what increasingly seemed to resemble a semi-criminal enterprise.”

He then quotes Bannon as saying: “I think we can drop the ‘semi’ part.”

Damn! That’s going to leave a mark.

Here is more concerning Trump’s wealth:

In Siege, Wolff quotes Bannon saying investigations into Trump’s finances will cut adrift even his most ardent supporters: “This is where it isn’t a witch hunt – even for the hardcore, this is where he turns into just a crooked business guy, and one worth $50m instead of $10bn.

“Not the billionaire he said he was, just another scumbag.”

Now I will mention that Steve Bannon is also a real scumbag, who is currently trying to spread white nationalism all throughout Europe and attempting to undermine their elections. 

However he knows quite a lot about Donald Trump and obviously there is no love lost there, so I believe what he shares to be accurate. 

Especially since most reporting confirms exactly what he has been saying.

    Hmmm. Why then did Bannon just become an integral part of that “Go Fund Me” ‘trumpy wall-building’ mess near El Paso with Kobach and Kolfage??? The wall that was red-tagged for not having a permit and no approval from the agency that approves any building in the U.S./Mexico boundary area.

    I guess if anyone ought to be able to spot a scumbag it would be Bannon!

    So…my question is when did Bannon realize Trump was a scumbag? Before or after he helped him get seated in the White House?

    This guy is like Saruman; he says things that are transparently hateful, and everyone just sucks it up. Who is funding Bannon? I guess he’s another one of Putin’s Putos.

    OT? Bet Not

    https://thinkprogress.org/what-former-officials-on-the-national-security-council-really-think-of-john-bolton-relationship-with-trump-b2b02ade1813/

    foreign-policy experts who have worked in previous administrations — for presidents of both parties — question whether Bolton is trying to undermine the president he is supposed to serve.
    Richard Clarke>old ThinkProgress that what is unfolding between Trump and Bolton is “certainly not normal,” beginning with how Bolton goes about doing his job.
    There are three levels on the National Security Council: Issues are supposed to be run through every level, discussed, and sifted before decisions are made.

    “It represents a sort of hubris, a sort of arrogance, a sort of, ‘I already know the answer, I’ve already done the analysis, I don’t need to go through the process, I don’t need to hear what the agencies have to contribute to this,’” “There’s no doubt that John [Bolton] would pull triggers sooner than most people. I think that’s a fair statement.” ““He’s someone who comes to the job with stringent and extreme ideas of his own. And it seems has essentially dissolved the procedural mechanisms in favor of allowing his preferred route — in this case, escalation with Iran, to win the day,”
    ““President Trump, by most accounts, picked John Bolton because he liked the sound of him on TV, and he wanted that guy working for him,”
    “Clarke of Trump. “He doesn’t have a clue about how diplomacy works, about how national security works. He knows the end-state that he wants to get to, but he has no idea of how to get from where you are to where you want to be.””
