"Hell hath no fury like a boomer scorned" seems to be the fall out from the latest bit of political drama surrounding President Trump.

This comes after former chief strategist Steve Bannon called a June 2016 meeting between Trump’s son Donald Jr, son-in-law Jared Kushner, campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower "treasonous: and "unpatriotic."

The comment came in a new book on the Trump presidency by Jewish journalist Michael Wolff, based on more than 200 interviews with the president, his inner circle, and other key players like Bannon. The interview appears to have taken place soon after Bannon was fired from his White House position in August 2017. 

Bannon's comments, which buy into the fake news narrative promoted by the mainstream media that the Russians somehow "hacked" the US Presidential election, greatly angered Trump. They also reveal Bannon to be on a par with Cuckservative Never Trumpers and firmly in the pocket of the Neocon establishment -- even more so than Trump.

Trump, as usual, responded to the comments with a scathing Tweet:
"When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind. Steve was a staffer who worked for me after I had already won the nomination by defeating 17 candidates, often described as the most talented field ever assembled in the Republican party."
The comments clearly contradict earlier statements issued by Bannon in which he dismissed allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. 

This is very bad for his credibility, and also indicates that Bannon is mainly motivated by a sense of petty egoism and bruised and emotional feelings at not being appreciated enough by Trump. 

In short, this is the worst case of political "Senpai didn't notice me" butthurt since Marcus Junius Brutus stabbed Julius Caesar to death on the steps of the Roman Senate building in 44BC.
