Don Jr. Excoriates Bannon in Crazy Tweetstorm: ‘Andrew Breitbart Would Be Ashamed’


Like father, like son.

Shortly after President Donald Trump released a scathing statement denouncing his former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, as “crazy,” Donald Trump Jr. lit the Breitbart chairman up on Twitter.

As part of an excerpt from a soon-to-be-released book authored by USA Today’s Michael Wolff, Bannon ripped Don Jr., among others, over the infamous Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer.

“Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad shit, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately,” Bannon wrote.

Junior’s response?

That wasn’t all. Here’s the rest of the (possibly ongoing) Tweetstorm:

Bannon seemed to save some of his harshest comments for Trump Jr.

“They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV,” Bannon said, in the yet-to-be-published book. “Their path to fucking Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr and Jared Kushner…It’s as plain as a hair on your face.”
