To be fair, there are plenty of strange things that have been insinuated about Donald Trump, both before and after he took a giant left turn into the political spectrum.
For years they said that he was a narcissist. He’s been painted as an egomaniac. He’s a “pig”, or, even wilder, he’s somehow attracted to his own daughter.
There are no shortage to the ways that Trump finds himself disparaged these days, with any number of his former pals taking pot shots at No. 45. The latest was Steve Bannon, who made some seriously wacky claims about Trump.
STEVE Bannon secretly plotted to remove Donald Trump from office claiming he had dementia – and believed HE could personally succeed him as president, a bombshell new book claims.
In a memoir released this week, TV Producer Ira Rosen wrote that Bannonmistakenly believed Trump “was suffering from early-stage dementia and that there was a real possibility he would be removed from office by the 25th Amendment”.
Rosen said that Trump “turned on Bannon” after he appeared on a Time magazine cover in February 2017, weeks after the president was sworn in.
In an interview about his book ‘Ticking Clock: Behind the Scenes at 60 Minutes’ based on his work on iconic news show 60 Minutes, Rosen said there was a conspiracy.
“Bannon realized that Trump was repeating the same stories over and over again and Bannon kept saying this and he wanted to do something about it,” he told Yahoo News’ Skullduggery podcast.
Here is where it gets crazy.
“Now, the secret was that Bannon crazily thought that he could be president.
“He would have been very happy to see Trump disappear from the scenes, either through the 25th Amendment, resigning for whatever reason, and he would step in and fill the gulf and carry the mantle of the Trump followers. But he was delusional about it.”
So, was Bannon just a snake in the grass the whole time?
