“Sloppy Steve” Bannon Considering Lawsuit Against Trump

Filed under: Uncategorized — Patterico @ 10:30 pm

Keep that popcorn a-poppin’! First President Donald J. Trump fired off a tweet with arguably his most awesome nickname yet — “Sloppy Steve,” referring to Breitbart News Chairman Stephen K. Bannon:

Oh yeah! Also Trump is gonna sue Bannon! Ya gonna take that, Sloppy Steve? Huh? Are ya?

Perhaps not:

The feud between President Trump and his ex-svengali Steve Bannon could see another courtroom escalation after a new hint that Bannon may sue for defamation.

The possible legal move comes after a Trump attorney fired off a cease-and-desist letter demanding Bannon cease disparaging comments about Trump, in possible violation of a non-disclosure agreement.

High-profile defense lawyer Mark Geragos floated the idea in an appearance on CNN, asked if Bannon might make a defamation case.

‘I have it on pretty good authority that he’s considering that,’ Geragos said, immediately referencing a Trump statement from Wednesday saying Bannon had ‘lost his mind.’

Hey, look. When a story is this good, Mark Geragos saying he has it on “pretty good authority” is good enough for me!

More popcorn!

And keep in mind that, as long as Trump is insulting Sloppy Steve, he’s insulting a guy who doesn’t have a nuclear button on his desk.

Not even a small one.

And that is a win, I say.
