Bannon trashed Pence as Trumpís VP pick

Posted on 10/10/2017 12:40:14 PM PDT by ChicagoConservative27

Nationalist bomb thrower Steve Bannon trashed the choice of Mike Pence as Donald Trump’s running mate — calling the socially conservative Republican “the price we pay” for winning the support of the GOP establishment, a new report said Tuesday.

Bannon and Milo Yiannopoulos, the political provocateur and former technology editor at Breitbart News, shared their dim view of the former Indiana governor in emails obtained by BuzzFeed News.

“Seems like a bad pick. Should I tweet something ambivalent about him? People are telling me Trump likely didn’t want this. …What’s our party line on this?” Yiannopoulos wrote to Bannon and Breitbart editor Alex Marlow on July 15, 2016, the day Team Trump named Pence as its choice for veep.

“This is the price we pay for cruzbots and #nevertrump movement. An unfortunate necessity … very. feel free to do whatever u want. we, as always, will remain above it all,” Bannon replied, shortly after he signed on as Trump’s campaign manager.

Two days later, Bannon approved a column by the gay Yiannopoulos asking Pence — an evangelical Christian who won’t meet or dine with a woman unless his wife, whom he calls “Mother,” is with him — to attend a “big gay party for Trump.”

“I’m cool,” Bannon wrote of the story.

“It’s a little mocking but we want to turn the screw,” Yiannopoulos answered, according to the website.

Pence is a good RINO. He keeps quiet. Doesn’t try to openly sabotage Trump. I don’t trust him at all though.

Pence has been more loyal to Trump than just about anyone else, including Trump’s own family. The general opinion in Indiana is that Pence is Trump’s puppet. But, as VP, that’s what he’s supposed to be. So is the rest of the cabinet and bureaucracy, but we see how that’s going.

Trump will know his way around Congress and D.C. negating the need for Pence. Another BULLDOG should succeed Pence in a 2nd term. Experience no longer necessary. My bulldog? How about Hannity?

Unusual for the post to attack three conservatives at once... Bannon, Milo and Pence.
Now why would an nonymous author at the Post of all places be mad at all three?

8 years of Pence as VP will make him look like a yes man. Ask 41’.

Maybe Milo jilted a Journalist.

Still, it was a funny prank on Pence to ask him to the party, but Pence should have pranked them back and forwarded their invite to Rubio.

Is Bannon gay?

Bannon will tell you the precise coordinates of where the bear defacated in the buckwheat; but I consider that an asset. As to the bomb thrower part, that only applies, AFAIK, if you lob a bomb at him and he rifles it BACK at you before it goes off. I find him a very even, low key, calm voiced man....unless you rile him. So don’t rile him. It’s that simple.

hannity is a paid clown. I used to watch and like him but he’s compromised in ways by his not covering things he knows he should just to keep his show on air. Hannity is part of problems continuing, but sure he makes his living by putting his career before doing the right thing.

P.S. I didn’t like Pence at first, either. I didn’t like the way he folded when the fags in Indiana raised cain when he signed that religious rights bill. He seems to be O.K. as a veep. I cannot visualize him as POTUS, though. Doesn’t have the chops for it.

Social and fiscal conservatives are no longer allowed.

That’s not the story. It’s that Breitbart and “the new conservatives” hate Christians.

I'm afraid Pence is the new version of Reagans HW Bush pick. HW Bush was the biggest mistake Reagan ever made.

I believe Pence is the GOPe backup plan. The deep state is counting on him to undo everything if we elect him for the third Trump term just like GHW Bush did with Reagan.
