I want to say something about the departure of Steve Bannon — more like a public lynching.
Steve Bannon is a good man and he served his president well, contrary to what you might hear from liberal Republicans or the Mainstream Media.
I’ve never had a chance to meet the man personally – but I’ve studied his work. And I am confident to say he is not a flaming racist, nor is he Islamophobic or homophobic or xenophobic.
Bannon is a man who loves his nation. He’s worn the uniform of this country – served in the Navy with distinction.
And yet – his name has been smeared – his character and reputation dragged through the swamp. And I suspect it was an inside hit job — taken out by Establishment Republicans and Closet Democrats. I warned President Trump – that when you drain the swamp – you still have to contend with the snakes and vipers.
I’m concerned ladies and gentlemen — because the Conservatives within the Trump White House are dropping like flies. And whether or not the president is aware — he is surrounding himself with the very liberals he once despised on the campaign trial. The most liberals being Ivanka and Jared Kushner.
The New York Times wrote a piece about Bannon’s departure noting he did not believe in giving ground to critics. That’s one of the things I admired about Bannon. He’s not afraid to take a stand.
That’s what enraged the Mainstream Media. They could not get under Bannon’s skin and they could not get under Trump’s skin. He gave as good — if not better– than he got. That was Steve Bannon – a fellow deplorable.
So the question of the hour — who is left in the Trump White House — to defend all of us gun-toting, Bible-clinging, Deplorables?
