White House: Bannon Attacked Ivanka and Jr’s “Sacrificing” On Behalf of Nation

Rush pool report on comments from Trump press aide Hogan Gidley aboard Air Force One on whether there’s any redemption possible for Bannon. Most notable is reference to Ivanka’s and Don Jr’s ‘sacrifice’ in serving their nation. To criticize “two of the president’s children are serving this nation, sacrificing in their service, it is repugnant, it is grotesque.” More quotes after the jump …

“I don’t believe there is any way back for Mr. Bannon at this point.”

“It is very obvious Mr. Bannon worked with Mr. Wolff in this particular book.”

“The president has been very clear on his thoughts.”

“It is very obvious the book is false and fake.”

“I just don’t think there’s any way back.”

“When you go after somebody’s family in the matter which he did, two of the president’s children are serving this nation, sacrificing in their service, it is repugnant, it is grotesque and I challenge anybody to go and talk about somebody’s family and see if that person doesn’t come back and comes back hard.”

(The report notes this is a rush transcript so small changes in wording may come with official transcript.)
