Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon tore into the coverage of Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) funeral, saying that the event was conveyed as if it were the “High Holy Days.”
“It’s not just the coverage of it, but it’s also the way it was set up and the way it was crafted,” Bannon told the Daily Beast in an interview. “This was the High Holy Days.”
“This permanent political class, you saw them there at this funeral. This was High Civic Religion, the High Holy Days,” he continued. “Trump didn’t create North Korea. He didn’t create Afghanistan. He didn’t create Iran. He didn’t create Venezuela. That was all dumped on him by that crowd that was there.”
Bannon added that he wasn’t singling out a particular political party, but rather “the permanent political class.” “The Bush administration will go down as the single worst administration in the history of the country, including James Buchanan: 9/11, the Iraq War, the financial crisis, the rise of China, the whole thing,” he said.
