Sarah Huckabee Sanders just made a laughable claim about Trump’s relationship with Bannon

In an absurd press conference today, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders grappled with a second day of questions about everything from President Trump’s mental fitness to his relationship with former national security advisor and Breitbart chairman Steve Bannon.


After Trump tweeted nuclear taunts at North Korean dictator Kim Jung-Un and then issued an outraged response to a blindsiding Bannon betrayal in Michael Wolff’s explosive exposé Fire and Fury, the White House press pool had plenty of  fodder for inquiry.

When asked about Trump’s famed closeness with Bannon, Sanders shot back defensively, “I’m not aware that they were ever particularly close.”

But anyone who has been following the Trump debacle — from the time Bannon replaced now-indicted Paul Manafort as Trump’s campaign chairman to the time he was fired from his senior adviser position in the White House — knows that “President Bannon” held a unique sway over Trump as the mouthpiece of his white nationalist base.

Although he has tried to distance himself from Bannon in the past two days, Trump regularly praised him, calling him “my good friend,” and even promoting him to his National Security Council. 

Even after Bannon’s “resignation,” Trump extolled him and vice versa.

Tensions arose after Trump followed Bannon on the fool’s errand of endorsing and having the RNC fund the Alabama Senate campaign of credibly accused child molester and theocratic proponent of slavery, Roy Moore.

But all hell broke loose after Wolff’s book revealed that Bannon had been flapping his gums about everything under the sun to do with Trump and his family, calling their Russian associations “treasonous” and “unpatriotic,” to which Trump responded that Bannon had “lost his mind.”

Today, Bannon called Trump “a great man,” trying to re-enter his good graces — or more importantly, the good graces of the Breitbart board and Republican mega-donor Robert Mercer.

Trump responded that “he obviously changed his tune pretty quick.”

Ms. Sanders is the one who has lost her mind, if she thinks anyone believes that the two misogynist racists were never close.  The man she works for lost his a long time ago.
