Will Steve Bannon Stand Behind Judge Roy Moore?

in News by

Breitbart News Executive Director Steve Bannon, who frequently boasts about his plans of a populist revolution seeking to overturn the GOP orthodoxy since leaving the Trump administration, is facing his first big test as political kingmaker. Judge Roy Moore, the anti-establishment GOP Senate contender in Alabama, is facing immense attacks for accusations of sexual improprieties, and the heat continues to build against the Bannon pick.

“Even Chuck Todd, the swampiest creature of swamp creatures, he walked through it yesterday on Meet the Press. He said it felt completely orchestrated,” Bannon said on SiriusXM radio, indicating that he does not buy the attacks against Judge Moore whatsoever.

“This is just another desperate attempt by Mitch McConnell to keep power, and it’s not going to work. You know, people in Alabama see through this. The good folks of Alabama are going to be able to weigh and measure this. Plenty of time to weigh and measure this, and to come to a conclusion, an independent conclusion, which the folks down there are obviously capable of doing. But this is an orchestrated hit from the Uniparty,” Bannon said.

Although Bannon stands for Judge Moore publicly with vigor, reports have indicated that behind the scenes he is trying to find a way to distance himself from the scandal-plagued Alabaman’s tumultuous Senate campaign.

The Daily Beast reported today that “Bannon has begun privately taking the temperature of those in his inner circle to see what they think of the Moore allegations and to get their sense of how to proceed” according to four sources close to Bannon and Breitbart.

Judge Moore’s supporters will likely point to this as an example of fake news, but this is Bannon’s first test as the potential kingmaker of an ascendant populist movement within Republican politics. How he responds may ultimately determine whether he has what it takes to run the show, or if he will fall by the wayside like so many other wide-eyed political operatives have throughout the years.

  1. Until someone offers proof the popular perception this is a political dirty trick. This guy was a moral crusader for decades and been controversial and if this had happened it would have been more credible not 40 years after the fact.

  3. Scandal plagued? Unless their is new evidence or more accusations then the only so called scandal I know of is the one about the woman making politically convenient 30 year old accusations against the judge.

  4. Evangelicals like to point out that Islam is a disgusting religion because Muhammad married a 6-year-old. But now they’re citing the Virgin Mary’s youth as a defense for Moore. So I guess the line is drawn somewhere between 6 and 14 for them? At around 10 maybe?
