There are some people who are spreading the myth that they were poised on the precipice of power in the Blompf administration until the wignats ruined it for them in Hailgate and Charlottesville.
Steve Bannon blew that myth out of the water in his 60 minutes interview after he was fired by the Trump administration:
“In the 48 hours after we won, there’s a fundamental decision that was made. You might call it the original sin of the administration. We embraced the establishment. I mean, we totally embraced the establishment.”
“The ‘drain the swamp’ thing was — is Mitch McConnell was day one did not want to — did not want to go there. Wanted us to back off.”
Steve Bannon was interviewed by Cernovich and had this to say about the Alt-Right before the 2018 midterms:
“They can go fuck themselves. I don’t give a shit, right? Because they’re irrelevant. What’s relevant is building a coalition here of working-class people and middle-class people who can take the country back. And this is not an ethno-nationalist movement. It’s a civic or economic nationalist movement, and it’s a winner,” Bannon said. …”
As he explained in Bob Woodward’s book Fire and Fury, Steve Bannon had already sold out to the Republican establishment after Blompf won the Republican primary. Reince later became Chief of Staff and immediately began restocking the Swamp.
“I reached out and sucked Reince Preibus’ dick on August 15 and told the establishment, we can’t win without you.”
After he won the 2016 election, Blompf sold out to the donors and started packing his Cabinet with them like Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Andy Puzder who he nominated to be Labor Secretary or Ben Carson who is his HUD Secretary. He held court at Trump Tower in New York City in November 2016 and December 2016 as the checks started flying in from people like Sheldon Adelson (the top donor of his inauguration who simply gave $20 million to pro-Blompf Super PACs in the 2016 election) and Hank Greenberg who is the CEO of AIG.
It is a myth that the entire course of the Blompf administration was changed by one drunken toast by Richard Spencer and one drunken hail by Mike Enoch at the 2016 NPI Conference. The truth is that it barely registered and was swatted away. I knew the fix was in from the minute The Mooch started making public appearances as a member of Blompf’s Transition Team. Follow the money and everything that has happened since the 2016 election makes much more sense.
