Opinion: Steve Bannon's demise is not the end of Trumpism

Trump Has Moved a Step Closer to Implosion

The former White House chief strategist was quoted in Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" as speaking out against President Donald Trump and his family.

Bannon made the remark about the 100 women as part of a larger discussion about the president's top advisors, some of whom he disparaged at length in Wolff's controversial book, " " which the president has condemned as "full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don't exist".

With "friends" like Bannon, Trump doesn't need any more enemies.

Trump accused Stephen Bannon of betraying him.

. According to his biographers it has been always been this way.

Bannon stepped down from his position as head of Breitbart News this week amid Trump's furor that Bannon believed Donald Trump Jr. would get "cracked like an egg" by Mueller's team over his infamous meeting with Russian officials in 2016.

Trump Has Moved a Step Closer to Implosion

Bannon's comments in the book helped fuel calls for him to testify in Congress about the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower that included a Russian lawyer and Trump associates, which has been a focus for investigators looking into Russia and the election.

Although Bannon was sacked from his White House position by Trump in August, he had been a close Trump associate since he joined the Trump campaign and helped the political novice defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. Bannon, a former Goldman Sachs banker turned economic nationalist who boasted about making Breitbart into a platform for the alt-right and was yearning for a revolution in Washington, met Trump, a real estate mogul with the biggest aspirations for himself, but devoid of any sort of coherent political worldview beyond a vague winner-take-all mentality.

Bannon departed the White House in August, amid a shakeup ushered by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, who had replaced Reince Priebus as chief of staff a few weeks prior. As if we didn't already know that greed trumped security.

"I'm not saying I have or haven't", Trump said.

New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg drew attention to Bannon's comment in on Friday afternoon, shortly after the publication of the Journal report.
