Listen: Kushner Bannon, President Trump, Corey Lewandowski discussed on Joe Walsh
"New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, author of the new book, let me finish Trump. The Kushner Bannon, New Jersey the power in your face politics. That is I think his favorite reading pastime. I'm a contributing columnist to Washington person always trying to get it in the paper as opposed to the website because I have a feeling in DC a lot of people read the newspaper. One of them is the president. Again, let me finish as a lot of Trump's. I wanna try out my grand theory of Trump to someone who knows better than anyone the president like all developers it is level. And I worked from thirty years as a lawyer. They are whatever they need to be in whatever room. They find themselves in with whomever is in that room because time is money and the entitlements have to move forward and the models get open. He's just a developer. Correct. Correct. I think you you you read them very well. I think he, you know, this is a guy who believes and this'll explain Kim Jong Hoon a bit. Yup. Yup. This is a guy who believes that when he gets in a room he can convince anyone of anything. And it is fairly consistent with experiences developer my completely consistent, but consistent enough, and he believes the same thing with Putin the same thing with again, he he believes if he gets in a room with someone he can convince them of what he's trying to argue presidency of China, all these folks are people he wants to meet with personally and alone because he believes that the power of his personality can bring them around and developers are also very aware of sunk costs in the theory of you walk away from them. You don't double down on a loser. You just walk away from let's talk about the people around him, specifically, Corey Lewandowski, Stephen Miller, Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Stephen Bannon, rights Priebus, Kellyanne Conway, and David Bossie are all treated and let me finish. You got some sympathy for Corey Lewandowski, though, you call him manic, Stephen Miller your hands off though, you are. I would say your eyebrows are raised a little bit about him about Pelham Manafort, you judged immediately. He was old slow and out of the game about Flynn, you thought he was crazy about Bannon. Let we'll come back to Bannon people snake that you call them to be writes good friend of mine appears to be a good friend of yours. You have great admiration for Kellyanne Conway, and you've got great admiration birthday bossy. This is a truly Indians lineup from the sixties. We got like three out of nine people work here. Yeah. Well, listen. I think the fact is that that I try to evaluate people based upon my experience with them. And what I observed, and that's why this is not one of these typical books. I mean, I I when people deserve to be complemented in here. I do and when people deserve to be criticized I do based upon what I observed Mike experience. And so on Corey, for instance, Corey was manic. But man, he he took a candidate who had no experience and God him to a place where the Kennedy trusted Corey completely. And I remember we tell the story about me and my old law partner. A national committee guy named Bill Powell Tucci coming on the plane after I endorsed Trump and Bill said are we waiting for everybody else or or or we are we taking off now and said who else we waiting for? This is the whole team. It was Corey Lewandowski hope Hicks, Dansk Gavino and Keith Schiller, the president's body guy. And that was it and Bill turned to me and looked at me and said we lost to this. Now, I'm Brett come to Bannon in a second Peter Navarro, I've known for twenty five years a mile from me, he's a lefty he was an anti developer candidate perennial losing candidate in San Diego. What is he doing in the White House? This is the president's collection of friends. Right. This is because remember something this is a president who as you. And I both know it's not always conservative. This is a president who donated to lots of Democrats and have lots of democrat causes that he supported earlier in his life. And so the president doesn't hold that against someone if he thinks there's someone who could provide some type of value to today and Navarro on the trade issue is someone who he is simpatico with. All right, Steve Bannon page three twenty nine quote, Steve Bannon is a fraud. Nobody in a liar after getting fired by the president for being the biggest leaker in the west wing. And that is quite a distinction. Given the leaky crew that was there for the first seven months Bannon launched a never ending mission to diminish others and. Rehabilitate himself. It was a shame and a surprise that. Bob Woodward allowed himself to be used on such a fool's errand. I spend a lot of time talking about Woodward. And now, I have to think 'cause you're just so obviously, candidly honest in in let me finish the Woodward book as a piece of paper. Well, let me just say this. I can only tell you that there were at least two instances in fobs."
