Drudge Report editor Matt Drudge on Wednesday ratcheted up his criticism of Stephen Bannon, calling him "schizophrenic" after explosive new comments from the the former White House chief strategist. 

"No wonder schizophrenic Steve BannonStephen (Steve) Kevin BannonThe specter of Steve Bannon may loom over 2020 Trump campaign Sunday shows - Trump's Epstein conspiracy theory retweet grabs spotlight Steve Bannon: 'President Trump is not a racist' MORE has been walking around with a small army of bodyguards," Drudge said in a one of his rare tweets, which are always deleted.

The Guardian on Wednesday published several quotes from Bannon that will appear in a new book from journalist Michael Wolff.

“They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV," Bannon told Wolff, referring to the ongoing probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.
 
Bannon also told Wolff the probe would focus on money laundering. 
 
“This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose [prosecutor Andrew] Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy.

This is not the first time Drudge has taken a jab at Bannon.
