‘Sloppy Steve’: Trump Uses Infrastructure Mtg To Come Up With New Bannon Insults

President Trump used a meeting about infrastructure at Camp David last year to come up with new, biting insults for his then-latest political punching bag: Steve Bannon.

According to The Washington Post’s review of Politico Playbook author’s Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer’s new book, “The Hill to Die On,” Trump appeared to be paying apt attention during the meeting. Then-chief economic adviser Gary Cohn was outlining potential plans for rebuilding roads and bridges across the U.S. as Trump took, what appeared to be, notes.

Instead, Trump was focused on coming up with a litany of new insults for “Sloppy Steve,” which was scrawled across the top of Trump’s index card, followed by thoughts on “how he wanted to trash Steve Bannon the next time someone asked him about it.”
