Steve Bannon doesnt seem to be having a great week. Along with losing his spot on the National Security Council and feuding with President Donald Trumps son-in-law, Jared Kushner, the White House chief strategist now has Sean Penn attacking him.
Penn worked with Bannon for the actors directorial debut, The Indian Runner in 1991. Bannon served as the executive producer and was still early in his career of bankrolling movies after leaving Goldman Sachs.
Toward the end of Bannons bad past few days, Death and Taxes was able to reach Penn for a comment about his time working with Bannon. Penn didnt have nice things to say.
Bannon was then, as he is now, simply another bitter Hollywood wannabe who went rogue by way of toxic narcissistic iconoclasm. But, deep in his heart, hes just a conniving hateful bloated punk who despises mankind. And then there are also the bad things about him

Despite this potential monetary hit, Bannon also partially financed Seinfeld, likely earning him millions on the investment. He also still seems to like a good Hollywood reference as shortly after Trumps election, he toldThe Hollywood Reporter, Darkness is good. Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. Thats power.
Yada yada yada, this person became Trumps chief strategist and then apparentlyour pseudo-president. Whats the deal …
