Patricia Arquette, More Stars Weigh in on Trump-Bannon Breakup: ‘Who Gets Custody of the Nazis?’

President feuds with his ex-chief strategist — and Hollywood has a field day on Twitter

Hollywood is weighing in on the public feud between President Donald Trump and his former chief strategist Steve Bannon.

“In the Trump/Bannon divorce who gets custody of the Nazi’s?” asked actress Patricia Arquette on Twitter Wednesday afternoon.

“Trump claims Bannon, who was his campaign manager for almost the entirety of the general election, ‘had very little to do with our historic victory.’ Does this mean he’s finally about to give credit to Putin as the true architect of his win?” asked “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn in a tweet.

On Wednesday, Trump said that Bannon “lost his mind” when he was fired from the White House. He issued the statement in response to comments made by Bannon to journalist Michael Wolff in the author’s soon-to-be published book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”

“Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind,” Trump said in a statement. “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 Guardian published portions of the book Wednesday after obtaining an advanced copy. In the book, Wolff purports that no one believed Trump would win, including Trump himself. In the book, Bannon also calls the now infamous meeting at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr. and Russian officials as “unpatriotic” and “treasonous.” (For more revelations from “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” head over here).

“They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV,” Bannon is quoted as saying.

Other Hollywood figures found the news and subsequent feud enlightening.

“The news today is awesome,” tweeted Chelsea Handler. “The constant verification of how dump [sic] and uninterested in govt. this president is is going to be the end of the Republican Party. They can suck it hard. Shame on you for allowing this man to do so much damage.”
