the latest: sanders, wolff give dueling tv interviews


washington — the latest on president donald trump, his former aide steve bannon and the book that told of a chaotic white house (all times local):8:30 a.m.white house spokeswoman sarah huckabee sanders is criticizing former white house adviser steve bannon, saying "we've seen a side that is frankly very, very disappointing."sanders spoke on "fox and friends" friday amid the fallout from an explosive new book that extensively quotes bannon making disparaging comments about trump's family. trump said earlier this week that bannon had "lost his mind." the acrimony suggests a permanent split between the president and the strategist who helped him win the white house.sanders said that bannon met on "multiple occasions" with michael wolff, author of "fire and fury: inside the trump white house."

it takes a thief to catch a thief, and michael wolff, with his new book “fire and fury: inside the trumpwhite house,” is the ideal hustler to capture president trump, whom wolff describes as having a “twinkle in his eye, larceny in his soul.” wolff, if memory serves, is similar, minus the twinkle. gimlet eyes don’t twinkle.say what you will about wolff: unless the book is wholesale invention, something in his i’m-with-the-band swagger in the west wing attracted awesomely sordid material from trump’s scurvy syndicate. in john sterling at macmillan, the book has a masterful editor, and three fact-checkers reviewed it. so i’m betting “fire and fury”will withstand whatever charges of journalistic impropriety come at it.and you’re a better woman than i am if you can look away.take stephen banno
