Steve Bannon Wants to ‘Praise and Honor’ Trump – While Destroying the GOP?

What happened?

In an election upset, Senate candidate Roy Moore beat out incumbent Luther Strange for the GOP primary runoff in Alabama. Moore will face the Democrat candidate, Doug Jones, in the general election to fill the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Former White House adviser Steve Bannon campaigned and met with conservative groups to fuel support for Moore, the underdog GOP candidate in a deeply red state, and has characterized the victory as a win against the Republican establishment.

Is Bannon still on Team Trump?

Bannon has been doing a curious balancing act since he was removed from the Trump White House, vowing to be a thorn in the side of establishment Republicans while never speaking against the president himself.

“We did not come here to defy Donald Trump; we came here to praise and honor him,” he said at a rally Tuesday night ahead of the Senate election.

Bannon promised a “day of reckoning” coming for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as well as the GOP strategists who worked for Strange.

Glenn’s take:

“This is an eighth-grade romance gone wrong,” Glenn quipped. “If somebody would have said [“praise and honor”] about Barack Obama, my head would have popped.”

Glenn noted that Bannon didn’t just disagree with Trump but actively campaigned against his candidate.

“Last night, Donald Trump found out that his day of reckoning was indeed here, but he needs to understand it is courtesy of Steve Bannon,” he said.

GLENN: Your day of reckoning is coming. That was the warning from Steve Bannon to the Republican establishment. Your day of reckoning is coming.

Clearly, he was confident that his candidate for the Alabama special election, Roy Moore, and Jeff Sessions, you know, former Senate seat against Luther Strange, endorsement by Donald Trump was going to lose. Bannon was right, the day of rock okay is here.

Is it though? Is this something that is going against the president? What was this really all about?

Moore's victory is an undeniable upset to the Trump administration and to the Republican establishment. But it seems odd to me that Bannon -- Trump's former White House chief strategist was stumping for Moore against the president. Now, maybe it's just me, I am old enough to remember that in the slightest disagreement against anything that Donald Trump said would be met with vicious reprisals, mainly from Steve Bannon, who here -- how times have changed -- not only disagreeing, but campaigning against Donald Trump.

In 2017, every principle has an expiration date, and that is the point. Bannon wants everyone to know that his attack on Trump is an attack on the Republican establishment, which I guess it is. After all, who is more establishment than the president of the United States, Steve?

This is an eighth grade romance gone wrong. According to Bannon, draining the swamp is the reason why he did not support Luther Strange. Throwing his support behind Moore was actually meant to help Trump, he says, not hurt him.

VOICE: We did not come here to defy Donald Trump. We came here to praise and honor him.

GLENN: Praise and honor him. Wow.

Again, call me old-fashioned, but if somebody would have said that about Barack Obama, my head would have popped. Praise and honor generally is left in my book for God.

But these are strange times indeed. Last night, Donald Trump found out that his day of reckoning was indeed here.

But he needs to understand it is courtesy of Steve Bannon.

Was Dr. Fauci involved in a COVID cover-up?

Released emails between virologist Christian Anderson and Dr. Fauci during early 2020 show Dr. Fauci was aware several, competent doctors believed the COVID virus contained genomes 'inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.' Or, in other words, they didn't believe it simply evolved from a bat. So, then, what changed? And why was Fauci so concerned when a 2012 paper regarding his interest in 'gain of function' research began to circulate online? It's all just speculation for now, but Glenn shares HIS theory: Fauci may have been involved in a major COVID-related coverup…

THIS is why Dr. Fauci’s emails ELIMINATE his credibility

Glenn breaks down the recent Dr. Fauci scandal, explaining WHY his recently released emails are so damning. Not only do his correspondence disprove the theory he was being censored by the Trump administration, but they eliminate any credibility he may have once had on the COVID pandemic, too. Even further: they confirm he lied under oath. The mainstream media may want you to think he's 'Mother Theresa in pants,' but these emails tell a MUCH different story. So, is it finally time to #FireFauci?

4 QUESTIONS the DHS must answer regarding their domestic ‘terror’ warning

The DHS recently released a rare terror bulletin, warning Americans of an increasing threat: domestic extremists. But if the Biden administration believes there's a grave danger to the American people, WHY are they not providing us with the information we need to protect ourselves? Or is it all due to politics? Glenn has four questions he believes our officials in DC must answer. For example, WHY are the Capitol rioters being treated like prisoners at Guantanamo?
