A new book about White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon naturally makes many claims about Bannon's bullish behavior toward former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, but also touches upon his purported relationships with those heavily ensconced in American politics.
The book, titled "Devil's Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump and the Storming of the Presidency," explores Bannon's varying attacks on figures such as Clinton and Ryan, as well as Jared Kushner, Megyn Kelly, and select members of the media.
The author of "Devil's Bargain," Joshua Green, claims that Bannon made many comments about Clinton.
"Clinton, Bannon would insist, was 'a resume,' 'a total phony,' 'terrible on the stage,' 'a grinder but not smart,' 'a joke who hides behind a complacent media,' 'an apple-polisher who couldn’t pass the DC bar exam' ... and for good measure, was ‘a f**king bull d*ke,'" Green wrote of Bannon.
In the book, Green also alleges that Bannon took aim at House Speaker Paul Ryan and didn't hold back.
About Ryan — who Bannon reportedly called a "limp-d*** motherf*****" who was "born in a Petri dish at the Heritage Foundation" — Green alleged that Bannon was worried that Ryan would attempt to use the RNC to "steal" the Republican nomination from President Donald Trump.
Bannon also reportedly took aim at feminists and those who march the Black Lives Matter movement.
In the book, Green writes that Bannon once said, "There are some unintended consequences of the women's liberation movement. That, in fact, the women that would lead this country would be pro-family, they would have husbands, they would love their children. They wouldn't be a bunch of d*kes that came from the Seven Sisters schools up in New England. That drives the left insane and that's why they hate these women."
About Black Lives Matter and marches against law enforcement, Green claims Bannon said, "What if the people getting shot by the cops did things to deserve it? There are, after all, in this world, some people who are naturally aggressive and violent."
Green is a political correspondent and writer and currently works for Bloomberg Businessweek, and additionally, contributes to The Boston Globe and The Atlantic.
