25 Key Quotes from Steve Bannon’s 60 Minutes Interview

Joel B. Pollak

On Sunday, September 10, Breitbart News executive chairman and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon appeared on CBS News’ 60 Minutes for his first television interview. The following are 25 key quotes, both from the main interview and “overtime.”

1. “The Republican establishment is trying to nullify the 2016 election. That’s a brutal fact we have to face.”

2. “Mitch McConnell when we first met him … he basically says, ‘ don’t want to hear any more of this “drain the swamp” talk.’”

3. “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. … Because you had to staff a government.”

4. “The plan was to do Obamacare because, remember, Paul Ryan and these guys come in and said, ‘We’ve done this for seven years. We’ve voted on this 50 times.’ … There is wide discrepancy in the Republican Party, as we know today, now that we’re in it. But I will tell you, leadership didn’t know it at the time. They didn’t know it till the very end.”

5. “I’m worried about losing the House now because of this– of– because of DACA … it will be a civil war inside the Republican party that will be every bit as vitriolic as 2013.”

6. “You couldn’t be more dead wrong [about immigration]. America was built on her citizens.”...........

Finally, McConnel and Ryan are getting some real push back from our side. This game has gone on long enough! We are in the midst of a realignment, and a pinch of Bannon is a healthy accelerant.

... we’re going to win in ’18 and we’ll pick [up] or six or seven Senate seats. I think we’ll pick up a couple of seats in the House. And (Trump) will win in a huge landslide in ’20.”

But, I heard Joe Biden is going to run in 2020. /s

One of my favorites:

12. “I don’t need to be lectured–by a bunch of– by a bunch of limousine liberals, okay, from the Upper East Side of New York and from the Hamptons, okay, about any of this. My lived experience is that.”

I was raised in a desegregated neighborhood. It-- it-- the north side of Richmond is predominantly black, OK? I went to-- I went to an integrated school, a Catholic school. I served in the military. I don't need to be-- I don't need to be lectured by a bunch of-- by a bunch of limousine liberals, OK, from the Upper East Side of New York and from the Hamptons, OK, about any of this. My lived experience is that.

Too good.

When the Leftist Democrat media have nothing, they always defer to failed comics to respond to the truth.

Stephen Colbert Rips Bannon, Trump as Nazis

Edgy, original stuff. Yawn.

Stephen Colbert returned to duty hosting The Late Show this week after a two-week vacation, as TruthRevolt noted yesterday, and launched into a typically juvenile and unfunny monologue pushing the left’s SOP (Standard Operating Propaganda) line that President Trump and his former advisor Steve Bannon are Nazis

Steve Bannon on the Admin’s “Original Sin”…”We Totally Embraced the Establishment”

By
S. Noble -
September 11, 2017

House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are fighting the President’s agenda and foremost among the President’s goals was to ‘drain the swamp’. They ended the movement to do so.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in one of the first meetings in Trump Tower, “I don’t want to hear any more of this ‘drain the swamp’ talk.” From day one, he wanted Trump to back off.

McConnell also complained about the “swamp” language in terms of hiring, arguing that he was having a difficult time convincing the right people to take government jobs in D.C. and on Capitol Hill because of the pay, reporting requirements, and scrutiny.

Right now, the problem as Bannon described it is “there is no accountability.” The establishment is not supporting the President’s agenda. It’s no secret, everybody knows it, he said.

The establishment does not want the President’s populist agenda. In order to form the government, the drive by the administration to ‘drain the swamp’ was ended.

“In the 48 hours after we won, there’s a fundamental decision that was made,” Bannon said to Charlie Rose in a “60 Minutes” interview. “You might call it the original sin of the administration. We embraced the establishment. I mean, we totally embraced the establishment.”

Bannon said many of the people that had staffed the backbone of the campaign — including himself — comprised an “island of misfit toys.” “So he looks around and I’m wearin’ my combat jacket, I haven’t shaved, I got — you know, my hair’s down to here, and he says — he’s — he’s thinkin,’ “Hey, I’ve gotta put together a government. I’ve gotta really staff up somethin’. I need to embrace the establishment.”

Bannon told Rose that the task of “draining the swamp” was a bigger accomplishment than any one administration could pull off, predicting it would 15-20 years of “relentlessly going after it.”

Mockers and scoffers have fallen on hard times, with Maher and Colbert as their “comic” leaders. Both are about as deep as a thimble, and NOT FUNNY!

WATCH: Photographer Explains How CBS Uses Color Adjustments To Make Steve Bannon ‘Look Bad’ On 60 Minutes

by Joshua Caplan

Following Steve Bannon’s highly anticipated interview with Charlie Rose on 60 Minutes Sunday night, professional photographer Peter Duke published a video explainer on how CBS may have used color adjustments to make the Breitbart News boss “look bad” on television.

“It seems like 60 minutes would like you to listen less and look more at Steve Bannon. By subtly tweaking the color of the video, they make him look like a bleary-eyed drunk. I show you how they did it,” writes Duke on the video’s YouTube page.

Peter Duke has photographed Milo Yiannopoulos, Scott Adams and James O’Keefe.

In the video, Duke explains how CBS color adjusted Bannon’s shots to make his eyes and lips red by increasing the level of saturation. This results in curtains that are a brighter orange behind Bannon than they are in Charlie Rose’s shot. Rose’s shot was made “cooler,” to make the host’s make-up more subtle.

Thanks, KeyLargo.

This is not at all surprising. Typical 60 Minutes/Lib Media tactic.

I saw the video of the interview posted here and I didn’t think Bannon looked bad but I wasn’t concentrated on what he looked like.

The 'swamp' wasn't built in a day and it will take a long time to 'drain' it. Given the fecklessness of the average voter, I don't think the political will is there for the long haul effort it will take, unfortunately. I am afraid more drastic measures will be required.

LIMOUSINE LIBERALS...I love hearing a descriptive phrase that nails it.

hmmm. Bannon needs to keep it alive. Make a permanent link on the Breitbart site called Breitbart Swamp Drain with links to elections and articles on how the people can take back their government CONSTITUTIONALLY.

This is a great article.

Bannon is a top notch strategist, still fully loyal to the original Trump movement, yet brutally honest about some mistakes made in the early days following the inauguration, and how they impacted the formation of the cabinet team.

I’m about as pro Trump as they come - almost a 4D chess guy.

But I think Bannon’s comments - about Trump “embracing the establishment” too much - ring true. There are some people on his team that don’t want to drain the swamp.

I hope Trump reads Bannon’s comments and takes them to heart, and cleans house. The swamp needs to be drained and 15 years is not soon enough.

Go Trump!

That wart on his upper left cheek. He should have it cut out. Wouldn’t do much though. They tried to make him look like a swashbuckling drunk. More on the ‘20 years’ remark on my next post.

Well, after everyone reads Hillary's book, how is the party going to deny her the nomination in 2020?

Maybe it will be made into a blockbuster movie. If only Margaret Hamilton were still around to play Hillary.
