Steve Bannon: It Would ‘Definitely Concern Me’ If POTUS Knew About Trump Tower Meeting

On Friday night, Steve Bannon was pressed on remarks he had previously said about the infamous Trump Tower meeting being “treasonous.” Back in July 2016, Don Jr. organized a meeting with a Russian lawyer who supposedly had dirt on Hillary Clinton, which ended up being a meeting about Russian adoption policies. Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort had also attended the meeting. It wasn’t until roughly a year later that the meeting was publicized. And when Bannon weighed in, many perceived his “treasonous” remark was aimed at Don Jr, but since clarified that it was meant at Manafort. “What about it made it treasonous to you?” Ari Melber asked. “Look, I think professionally, Paul Manafort- I don’t think you outta have- you know, people from other countries- Russians or whatever, come in and there’s enough opposition research out there,” Bannon said. “So by your standard, it’s that knowledge Continue reading "Steve Bannon: It Would ‘Definitely Concern Me’ If POTUS Knew About Trump Tower Meeting"

Ari Melber Presses Steve Bannon Over Trump’s Gender Gap: Is He ‘Walking Away’ From Women Voters?

Things got very fiery between MSNBC host Ari Melber and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon over President Donald Trump and his weak polling among women voters. Melber began by asking Bannon what the “Time’s Up” movement means to him, which he interpreted as the “end of the patriarchy,” adding he’s not “100%” with them but sees it as a “powerful political force.” The MSNBC host then shifted to Trump’s historically-low gender gap that has gotten worse since the 2016 election. “Is this party walking away from women voters or college educated women voters?” Melber asked. Bannon pointed to how Trump beat Hillary Clinton among white women and that minority women contributed to the gap. “The question is,” Melber interrupted, “is Trump walking away and walking the GOP away-” “He’s definitely not walking away,” Bannon responded. “Look at Ivanka [Trump]. I think Ivanka has been Continue reading "Ari Melber Presses Steve Bannon Over Trump’s Gender Gap: Is He ‘Walking Away’ From Women Voters?"

Steve Bannon: Roy Moore Would’ve Won If McConnell and Others ‘Hadn’t Turned Against Him’

On Friday night, Steve Bannon appeared on MSNBC and, among many things, discussed the upcoming midterms and his recently poor track record when it comes to backing winning candidates. Ari Melber asked the former White House chief strategist why should Republicans seek him for help since he hasn’t “backed winning candidates in the special elections thus far.” Bannon responded by saying he backed winning candidates “in the primary.” “The Republican establishment in Alabama, Roy Moore specifically- I mean, Roy Moore would have won that election if [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell and [Alabama Sen. Richard] Shelby and these others hadn’t turned against him,” Bannon told Melber. “So I’ve got a very good feel how to turn people out.” “How could you blame Republicans in Washington for what happened in Alabama?” Melber shot back. “Didn’t the voters there make up their minds?” “Well, Shelby came Continue reading "Steve Bannon: Roy Moore Would’ve Won If McConnell and Others ‘Hadn’t Turned Against Him’"

Nightmarish Trailer For Steve Bannon’s New Movie Features Don Lemon, Pete Hegseth And That Racist Lunch Guy

After his unceremonious ouster from the White House, Steve Bannon fled to Europe, where he planned to guide insurgent right-wing candidates to political success, sparking a nationalist revolution across the continent. The reception was lukewarm. The Washington Post detailed the “chilly” reception to Bannon’s quixotic plans of fomenting another alt-right revolt. So it appears Bannon is back to doing what he was known for before serving as President Donald Trump‘s comically villainous consigliere: making terrifying documentaries about the American Left bringing on the apocalypse. The trailer for Trump @War, Bannon’s new documentary, set for release just ahead of the 2018 midterms, premiered on Axios Thursday morning. It opens with dramatic footage of Trump supporters getting attacked in public between clips of CNN’s Don Lemon pinning responsibility for the president’s actions on them. Then appears former Breitbart editor Raheem Kassam, inexplicably dressed in a large trench coat and

Steve Bannon Warns GOP Midterm Candidates: ‘You Are Going to Pay’ If You Accept ‘Toxic’ Koch Money

Steve Bannon has a very clear message for GOP voters ahead of the midterm elections: Vote for RINO candidates, if you have to, for the greater good of the party. But Bannon also has a message for some candidates who might — by his definition — fall into that RINO category: Don’t you dare accept a dime from the Koch brothers. The former Breitbart chief is warning candidates that there will be “punishment” if they take any money from the conservative mega-donors. This comes after President Donald Trump called Charles and David Koch a “total joke” because their donor network opposes the president’s trade policy and is refusing to back some of Trump’s preferred candidates. “You take Koch money, it’s going to be toxic,” Bannon said in an interview with CNBC. “If you take money from people who are against the president and are looking to put a knife Continue reading "Steve Bannon Warns GOP Midterm Candidates: ‘You Are Going to Pay’ If You Accept ‘Toxic’ Koch Money"

Steve Bannon to Trump Voters: You May Have to Vote For ‘RINOs’ in Midterms To Prevent Impeachment

On Friday night, former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon appeared on Hannity to warn Trump voters about the possibility of Democrats taking back Congress in the 2018 midterms. Bannon began by calling the upcoming midterms President Donald Trump‘s “first reelect” and it’s a “referendum” on the Trump presidency since the opposition is “very focused” to win back the House in hopes of impeachment. He referred to the “Tea Party sweep” in 2010 as the winning strategy for Republicans to hold onto Congress, which includes “going door-to-door, ring doorbells, do voter registration drives, and get people out.” “Everybody that turned out in 2016 have to do it all over again,” Bannon told Sean Hannity. “Or the first action they’re going to take under Nancy Pelosi or whoever the Democratic Speaker is is trying to impeach President Trump.” Bannon explained how the opposition is “very different” now than Continue reading "Steve Bannon to Trump Voters: You May Have to Vote For ‘RINOs’ in Midterms To Prevent Impeachment"

Steve Bannon Slams Journalist Who Questioned His Support for Tommy Robinson: ‘You F**king Liberal Elite’

Steve Bannon reportedly launched a profanity-ridden tirade at a radio British journalist on Sunday. The journalist had questioned his support for Tommy Robinson, the co-founder of the far-right English Defense League. During a radio interview conducted by UKIP leader Nigel Farage on his radio show and with LBC radio’s political editor Theo Usherwood in the room, talk turned to the far-right political activist Robinson — whose real name is Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon — and his politics. “I don’t think Tommy’s a bad guy, I think he’s a solid guy and he’s got to be released from prison,” Bannon said. “But he broke the law!” Underwood replied as things got heated up. Farage then chimed in to add, according to The Guardian, “I take the view
