WH Official Rips Bannon: Like Trump Said, He’s ‘Lost His Mind, and Good Riddance’


White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah appeared on Fox News this afternoon to slam Michael Wolff‘s new book and Steve Bannon.

The official even told Harris Faulkner this afternoon that “frankly, this book would not exist without Steve Bannon’s cooperation.”

Shah added that Wolff has been “misrepresenting his level of access” and invoked President Trump’s statement blasting Bannon:

“The President has made his views very clear about what we think of Steve Bannon, his conduct, which hasn’t changed of late, and, look, Steve Bannon’s comments in the book were inappropriate… We think it’s highly inappropriate and frankly, look, the President said it, the man has lost his mind, and good riddance.”

He reiterated the White House line that the book has “little to no credibility” and is “tabloid trash.”
