“That’s Some Weird Shit.”

“In fact, Trump’s aggrieved mood became a perfect match for the Bannon-written aggrieved inaugural address. Much of the sixteen-minute speech was part of Bannon’s daily joie de guerre patter-his take-back-the country America-first, carnage-everywhere vision for the country. But it actually became darker and more forceful when filtered through Trump’s disappointment and delivered with his golf face. The administration purposely began on a tone of menace-a Bannon-driven message to the other side that the country was about to undergo profound change. Trump’s wounded feeling-his sense of being shunned and unloved on the very day he became president-helped send that message. When he came off the podium after delivering his address, he kept repeating, “Nobody will forget this speech.”
George W. Bush, on the dais, supplied what seemed likely to become the historic footnote to the Trump address: “That’s some weird shit.” -page 44 of Fire and Fury, by Michael Wolff
