On Friday, ‘War Room’ and longtime Trump ally Steve Bannon was on fire during his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). During his speech, Bannon blasted the Republican establishment and praised President Trump for his leadership.
“In a very volatile time in American history he gave us four years of peace and prosperity,” Bannon explained. “You know why? You know why? He put you in the room to make decisions. Out of the room, out of the deal.”
“And Trump not only puts you in the room, he puts you at the head of the table. And that’s why they hate him,” he continued. “They don’t hate him because he’s Trump, they hate him because he represents you. He gives you a voice and they will not back down.”
“They don’t hate him because he’s Trump,” he said in reference to the Democrats and establishment. “They hate him because he represents you. He gives you a voice and he will not back down.”
The ‘War Room’ host also went after Fox News for its lackluster coverage of Trump, explaining, “Look at Fox News. The president announces – this is historic – the guy gave you four years of peace and prosperity, announces he is going to run again after having it stolen in broad daylight in which they participate in. They cover it live for 20 minutes and then they say, ‘if there’s anything newsworthy we’ll cut back.’ And they go back to some panel or some discussion. Note to Fox senior management, when Donald J. Trump talks, it’s newsworthy.”
“What happened in the first week of January, you had Matt Gaetz and Boebert and the magnificent six and they put it on the line,” Bannon said in reference to their effort to win concessions from Speaker Kevin McCarthy during the speakership election. “And what did Fox News do? They rolled out Karl Rove and the hack from the Bush administration that got us in this mess and say we need unity. We’re not looking for unity, we’re looking for victory. We’re not looking for compromise, we’re looking to save our country.”
Bannon also spoke about the dangerous time that the country is currently in and explained that he expects a crisis to take place in the coming years.
“The storm is here. This is the most dangerous time in world history since the late 1930s, early 1940s. And how did we get here? Our betters, our elites led us here step by step by step,” Bannon said. “What you have now is that you have two converging crises. A crisis of capital markets and economics and a crisis of geopolitical and military. They are converging very rapidly and then they are going to conflate. Once they conflate they are going to spin out of control and it’s anybody’s bet.”
“Donald J Trump is not simply a leader of a political party. He is not a politician. He is a leader of the most powerful political movement in American history,” Bannon said in conclusion, per the Post Millennial. “MAGA, MAGA, MAGA. If your task and purpose is to take your country back, this country will be saved.”
As Republicans at CPAC anticipate President Trump’s speech on Saturday evening, Bannon fired up the crowd and made it clear how pivotal of a moment this is for the Republican party and for the country as a whole.
