“There could not be a more passionate supporter of Doug than me!”
“Mr. Bannon backed Mr. Moore in the primary, though the judge had been removed twice from the state Supreme Court for refusing to follow a legitimate court order. Mr. Moore was a political self-implosion guaranteed to happen.”
“”Stephen K. Bannon and his alt-right movement have helped accomplish something no one in a quarter-century has been able to do: get a Democrat elected in the state of Alabama.”
This is a truly devastating setback not only for Donald Trump, but for Steve Bannon, who effectively bet the house on Moore.
“We promote a lot of bad things.” Asked for an example, he replied: “Same-sex marriage.”
It was karaoke night at a Fairhope, Alabama dive bar on Tuesday, which presumably explains why a bleary-eyed, disheveled homeless man was allowed to get up on stage and ramble about establishment conspiracy theories.
Again, this man has no place holding public office irrespective of the recent allegations of misconduct with teenagers.
Meanwhile, another deeply disturbing anecdote has emerged from the West Wing.
What Bannon does now may well determine whether he retains his influence going forward.
Mitch McConnell isn’t exactly Braveheart and he is just about the last person you would hire to lead a pep rally, but deadpan Mitch just accidentally created a trending Twitter phrase.
“We wondered why someone his age would hang out at high school football games and the mall?”
“I’ve seen this before with Trump. As Hillary Clinton would say, this is nothing less than the politics of personal destruction.”
Is this the beginning of the end for Steve Bannon’s “revolution”?
