After he ignored a subpoena from congress, Steve Bannon was charged with contempt of court. And on Monday, the former Trump adviser was taken into custody on that charge.
An irate Bannon talked tough, telling reporters that he plans on taking down the Biden regime. And while the Conservative pundit might think he looked tough, Seth Meyers says that he came off much differently.
The late night host began, “Just to get you up to speed, you guys remember Steve Bannon — the former chief strategist to President Trump who looks like his morning beauty routine is to take a peek inside the Ark of the Covenant.”
Meyers continued, “Wait, I’m sorry. You call yourself Captain Bannon now? That’s like an ironic nickname they give the guy who rinses out the chum buckets down at the marina. Also, it really undercuts your attempt at defiance and bravado when there’s a guy right behind you holding up a sign that says ‘Coup plotter.
Making reference to the hit show Succession, Meyers closed, “[Bannon] definitely likes to think of himself as a Logan Roy type, but he’s more like a coked-up flunky who would get hired to help cousin Greg shred some documents and accidentally screw it up.”
