Facing enormous backlash from the White House and the possible loss of millions of dollars in profit and support from rich donors, Steve Bannon got down on his big fat belly Sunday and begged Donald Trump for forgiveness.
“Donald Trump, Jr. is both a patriot and a good man. He has been relentless in his advocacy for his father and the agenda that has helped turn our country around. My support is also unwavering for the president and his agenda — as I have shown daily in my national radio broadcasts, on the pages of Breitbart News and in speeches and appearances from Tokyo and Hong Kong to Arizona and Alabama.”
Next, Bannon gave an explanation for his critical remarks to author Michael Wolff by making up an excuse so ridiculous and stupid it sounds like it was crafted by the King of BS himself, Donald Trump:
“My comments about the meeting with Russian nationals came from my life experiences as a Naval officer stationed aboard a destroyer whose main mission was to hunt Soviet submarines to my time at the Pentagon during the Reagan years when our focus was the defeat of ‘the evil empire’ and to making films about Reagan’s war against the Soviets and Hillary Clinton’s involvement in selling uranium to them.”
While he was at it, Bannon also regurgitated the same boring talking point the administration has used ad nauseum whenever the subject of collusion with Russia is brought up:
“Everything I have to say about the ridiculous nature of the Russian ‘collusion’ investigation I said on my 60 Minutes interview. There was no collusion and the investigation is a ‘witch hunt.’”
Donald Trump gave Steve Bannon a new nickname this week: Sloppy Steve. It’s definitely fitting, as Bannon constantly looks dirty and greasy, likely due to not bathing. But after this pathetic mea culpa, it’s a lot more accurate to call him Spineless Steve.
