Trump Rage Tweets About Wolff and ‘Sloppy Steve’ Bannon: ‘Phony Book’ Is ‘Full of Lies’

We have a new nickname, folks!

While President Donald Trump had released a statement hammering former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon over comments he made to author Michael Wolff, and had his lawyer issue cease and desist letters in an attempt to stop the release of Wolff’s upcoming White House tell-all, the president had remained largely silent on the matter on Twitter. That ended tonight.

As you can see in the tweet above, Trump made sure to blast both Wolff and Bannon. He claimed he gave “zero access” to Wolff for his “phony book,” adding that it is “full of lies” and “sources that don’t exist.” Meanwhile, he described Bannon as “Sloppy Steve!”

Yep, that name is gonna stick. You can guarantee Trump will continue to use that one for a while.

UPDATE 11:06 PM ET: He added the following tweet in which he complained that the media wasn’t reporting on the stock market and claiming it would be the “biggest story on earth” if this were happening under Barack Obama.
