Joining the esteemed ranks of Little Marco, Low Energy Jeb, Crooked Hillary, and Lyin' Ted is Sloppy Steve.

The nickname was bestowed upon Stephen Bannon by President Trump in a Thursday night tweet, which targeted not just his former chief strategist but also Michael Wolff, author of the upcoming book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. Fire and Fury contains page after page of explosive quotes, including Bannon saying the Russia investigators will "crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV."
