Last night, after a fiery campaign appearance for Judge Roy Moore in Alabama, former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon took to Fox News to lash out at everyone from NFL players taking a knee at football games to the “spineless” Republican establishment. Here’s a recap of the more salient points:
‘If people in this country take a knee and the national football players want to take a knee, they should take a knee at night, every night, and thank God in heaven Donald J. Trump is president of the United States.”
‘He has saved this country so much grief. He has done such a tremendous job with virtually no help.”
“I stepped out to make sure that Mitch McConnell and the Republican establishment start to have a Republican back. Mitch McConnell wouldn’t be majority leader if Donald Trump didn’t drag half a dozen senators across the goal line in November.”
“So it’s time for the Republican establishment to step up and have the back of President Trump.”
