Bannon Kills It on 60 Minutes: “I’m Still Fighting For Trump On The Outside!”


Bannon: “The media is trying to destroy Trump! We’re going to war against the Republicans!”

In his first major interview since stepping down as Donald Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon has lashed out not just at the mainstream media, but also 60 Minutes’ Charlie Rose and the Washington establishment.

Bannon says the “original sin” of the Trump administration was embracing the Washington establishment, agreeing with the Republican congressional leadership’s plans to repeal and replace Obamacare. Bannon call it the “pearl clutching mainstream media,” and says it’s hardly surprising, given that he referred to the press as the “opposition party” right when President Trump took office.

Bannon saying:

“I don’t think (Trump) needs the Washington Post, and the New York Times, and CBS News. And I don’t believe that he thinks they’re looking out what’s in his best interest, okay? He’s not going to believe that. I don’t believe that. And you don’t believe that, okay? This is just another standard in judgment that you rain upon him in the effort to destroy Donald Trump. Trump knows he’s speaking directly to the people who put him in office when he uses Twitter. And it is sometimes not in the custom and tradition of what the opposition party deems is appropriate. You’re absolutely correct, it’s not. And he’s not going to stop.” 

Also, Bannon says Trump’s chief of staff, John Kelly, is “not going to be able to control it either because is Donald Trump” adding:

“It’s Donald Trump talking directly to the American people. And to say something else, you’re going to get some good there. And every now and again you’re going to get some less good, okay? But you’re just going to have to live with it.”
