Steve Banonn was in St. Louis today at the Eagle Forum summit and his message was loud and clear. Forget about the Democrats. The problem is the corrupt establishment GOP.
Here’s what he had to say to the packed house.
Former White House strategist Steve Bannon told conservatives Sunday at a rally that they needn’t worry about Democrats but instead should focus on the “corrupt and incompetent Republican establishment.”
Bannon spoke to about 400 people at a St. Louis hotel during the rally hosted by Phyllis Schlafly Eagles, a spinoff of the conservative think tank Eagle Forum that Schlafly founded and led until her death last year at age 92.
… During a three-minute speech, Bannon said he left the White House because Trump “needed a wingman to go against the Republican establishment.”
“It’s not the Democrats, we’ll get to them and we’ll beat them, like we beat Hillary Clinton,” Bannon said. “But the first thing you’ve got to get through is a corrupt and incompetent Republican establishment,” he told the crowd to cheers.
Republicans in Congress have failed to support Trump’s “populist, nationalist, conservative” message and ideas, Bannon said.
“They’re not conservatives. They’re liberals, and that is what we’ve got to fight every day,” he said.
Bannon is right. If there will ever be a draining of the swamp, there needs to be a major bloodletting in congress.
