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.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"
