Once again Donald J Trump’s choice of people running his campaign backfires as his new CEO Stephen K. Bannon allegedly beat his wife in 1996.
This certainly will cause a setback to Trump’s “outreach” towards women to his faltering campaign.
According to the police report Bannon grabbed his wife’s wrist and neck, then smashed a phone when she tried to call 911 from their Santa Monica home.
The police said they photographed marks on her wrist and her neck after the incident.
His wife Mary Louise Picard told police that Bannon abused her for years and they soon divorced after the 1996 altercation
The campaign did not respond to inquiries about the police report.
Spokes people for Breitbart declined to comment saying simply “that he has a great relationship with his ex-wife.”
Trump had made a number of derogatory statements during his campaign, and he was recently trying to reach out amid his softening campaign.
Picard took custody of their children after the divorce and said about nine months after the incident when Bannon was visiting, Bannon spanked one of his twin children who were 17 months old at the time.
Picard told him not to do that afterwards saying Bannon “screamed at me and stormed out of the house.”
Later Picard wrote that she wanted to restrict Bannon’s visits “as he became verbally abusive to her in front of the girls she saying I do not feel safe meeting with him.”
