Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon told CBS’ ’60 Minutes’ on Friday that he is bound and determined to fight Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan until they start supporting President Trump’s agenda.
Ever since his departure from the White House staff, Bannon has made it clear that he will fight for our President. He has declared war on Congress and refuses to let them get away with obstructing the progress of President Trump. Bannon is furious with both Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan because he knows that they do not support Trump on any level.
Right now there’s no accountability. They do not support the president’s program, it’s an open secret on Capitol Hill, everybody in this city knows it.”
This really is no secret based off of the rulings by Congress, and the lack of support that our President has received. But, the BIG SECRET of McConnell’s was also revealed by Bannon during his recent interview on 60 Minutes.
He says that in “one of [their] first meetings” together, McConnell made it clear that he thought Trump’s entire campaign was a joke. Bannon reports exactly what McConnell told them.
“He basically says, ‘I don’t want to hear any more of this drain the swamp talk,’” Bannon tells the interviewer, “I can’t hire any smart people because everybody is all over them for reporting requirements, and the pay, etcetera, you’ve got to back off that.”
Right away Mitch McConnell refuses to support the notion of draining the swamp… Perhaps because McConnell himself is one of the BIGGEST Swamp Monsters around!
Now that Bannon has shared his disappointments publicly, there’s no telling what will happen to McConnell and Ryan. Bannon has already made a number of moves to take them out. It’s only a matter of time.
