Donald Trump’s White House chief strategist is becoming quite the hot topic as of late. Not only has Bannon been in the media more than usual thanks to his demotion from the National Security Council, but there have been confirmed reports that he’s been fighting with Trump’s son-in-law and top advisor Jared Kushner. Because of these reports and some ominous comments Trump himself has made regarding Bannon, there have been rumors that Trump is planning on getting rid of him – but not without serious consequences.
Yesterday, ‘fake news’ online provocateur Mike Cernovich gave a fatal warning to the Trump administration, threatening to unleash “sexual blackmail” if Trump fired Bannon. Cernovich warned, “I know everything.” He said:
“If they get rid of Bannon, you know what’s gonna happen? The motherlode. If Bannon is removed, there are gonna be divorces, because I know about the mistresses, the sugar babies, the drugs, the pill popping, the orgies. I know everything. If they go after Bannon, the mother of all stories is gonna drop, and we’re just gonna destroy marriages, relationships—it’s gonna get personal.”

While this certainly seems like a serious threat, Cernovich was lighter on his comments and seemed to back off on Friday, after his warning caught media attention. Cernovich noted that he didn’t necessarily mean he was threatening the Trump family – although he didn’t take other White House officials off the chopping block:
“Fake news people are claiming that I threatened the Trump administration because I said I would release damaging information about Deep State. I would never threaten anyone in the Trump family, legally or otherwise.”
It’s uncertain who exactly Cernovich is threatening to blackmail, but it’s clearly someone in the White House – and it sounds like it could be damaging enough to take down the administration.
