Steve Bannon played an integral role in helping Donald Trump to capture the White House. While he has left the administration, he still supports the President in a number of different ways. The former campaign strategist has now created a new radio show to defend the President during the impeachment inquiry.
It’s clear that Trump’s former campaign chief has a serious issue with how the GOP is handling Trump’s current predicament. During his first broadcast, Bannon had numerous pieces of advice and urged supporters to stop calling polls “fake news.”
The polls that Bannon was specifically talking about were those that showed majority support for Trump’s impeachment. He told listeners, “Stop insisting that polls showing majority public support for the impeachment inquiry are ‘fake news’ — because they aren’t.”
Bannon also felt that Trump surrogates should be taking the Speaker of the House more seriously. He continued, “I don’t care if you hate Nancy Pelosi. This is a master, and she is teaching a master class.”
The former campaign chief felt that one Trump World figure needs to stop appearing on television. “We can’t do the Rudy thing anymore,” said Bannon.
Bannon was by co-hosts former Trump aide Jason Miller and former Breitbart editor Raheem Kassam. Miller said of GOP strategy, “Here’s our fundamental problem: We don’t have an elevator pitch to easily describe this to the right.”
The new show, says Bannon, will be airing once a day for the next two months or, “until the day after the acquittal of Donald J. Trump.”
