Trump Reportedly Joked About Domestic Abuse Allegations Against Steve Bannon
President Donald Trump is well-known for his disparaging nicknames for his opponents. But his most repulsive nickname appears to be for former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, who was alleged to have beaten his former wife.
Charges were dropped due to "witness availability." Trump reportedly found the allegations fodder for jokes.
“Was just told, by person present, that Trump referred to Bannon as ‘Bam Bam’ after allegations of domestic abuse surfaced against him (Bannon) during the campaign,” Eliana Johnson of Politico wrote on Twitter. “Trump told ppl: ‘Don’t worrry abt Bam Bam, he’s locked away in a room working 20 hrs a day. He never comes out.’”

This revelation comes the day before Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House is set to be released. In the book, Bannon makes damaging claims about Trump and his administration.
