Brimming with anger and resentment

The Times says it’s all over between Don and Steve.

President Trump essentially excommunicated his onetime chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, from his political circle on Wednesday, excoriating him as a self-promoting exaggerator who had “very little to do with our historic victory” and has now “lost his mind.”

In a written statement brimming with anger and resentment, Mr. Trump fired back at Mr. Bannon, who had made caustic comments about the president and his family to the author of a new book about the Trump White House. While Mr. Bannon had remained in touch with Mr. Trump even after being pushed out of the White House last summer, the two now appear to have reached a breaking point.

Don threw away the friendship bracelet Steve gave him.

Mr. Trump berated Mr. Bannon for the loss of a Senate seat in Alabama and said the former adviser did not represent his base but was “only in it for himself.”

I know, right? There’s just nothing quite like the way Don rages at people for being exactly like him. It was just four days ago that Don was milking the presidency (at our expense) to get higher prices for his party at Mar-a-Lago, but today he’s complaining that some other guy was “only in it for himself.”

“Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was,” he added. “It is the only thing he does well. Steve was rarely in a one-on-one meeting with me and only pretends to have had influence to fool a few people with no access and no clue, whom he helped write phony books.”

Ok Don, one, then why did you hire him? Doesn’t say much for your ability to judge character, does it. If he does nothing well except make himself look important, why did you give him the job?

And two, you’re the guy who’s always yipping about loyalty, but look at you, talking public smack about a former buddy while everyone watches. Have you thought about what this tells all your other employees? Good luck when they start heading for the doors.
