While Rush Limbaugh identifies Steve Bannon as the White House leaker, Ben Shapiro Agrees, and Then Some.
NeverTrumper Ben Shapiro (though friendly with Ann Coulter on immigration issues) has had a highly negative view of Steve Bannon. But now that Donald Trump has wreaked his wrath on Bannon’s reputation, Shapiro is solidly behind him. (Actually, between the tax reform deal and the decision on Jerusalem, Shapiro has praised Trump a great deal lately, but this reached new levels.) Now that we see longtime Trump supporter Rush Limbaugh attack Bannon, I think I should have given Shapiro’s opinion more weight.
The Hill reports, “Limbaugh: Most leaks coming from White House were from Bannon.”
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said Thursday that he believes Stephen Bannon was responsible for the majority of the first-year leaks coming out of the Trump administration.
“The thing that I think everybody believes and that everybody knows is that most of the leaking that was coming out of the Trump White House was Steve Bannon,” Limbaugh said.
His comments come amid an intensifying feud between Trump and Bannon, his former chief strategist, after excerpts were published from a new book about the early days of the Trump White House that quoted Bannon harshly criticizing the president and his family.[…]
Limbaugh added he thought Trump was pressured to tap Bannon for chief strategist by donations from the pro-Trump Mercer family, who own a stake in Breitbart.
