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.
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.
Moore admited it, not proof enough?
That would be proof and getting out of the race of the race would validate the claims.
Ray – he denied it. Stop being a lying coward, mentally ill prick.
False he admited to “dating” underage children when he was in his 30s. Wave bye bye to the creepy pedofile.
No, lying coward. You have no integrity. You want to sabotage Judge Moore because you’re butthurt over Trump pissing in Cruz’s face last year. How does it feel to be a crybaby who has failed your country?
Ray, he admitted to dating an 18 year old. Gfy

38 years ago ?
Such Fake News.
Stand with Roy Moore.
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.
Moore is sick a pervert makes Bannon look good. Both belong so far back in jail they are gonna have air pumped in!
“scandal-plagued” ? so the enemy can just make up stuff and our side abandons ship immediately? i think i can see how that will end….
Yep a religious zealot that doesn’t rule by the constitution but by the philosophy book the Bible.
The Bible created the Constitution.
Stalin and Mao were religious zealots too, I’ll go with a Christian over an atheist any day
No the Bible did not create the constitution. Good gracious.
Patrick Daniel yep and they killed lots of people for their religious beliefs. Just as Christians and every other religion in the world. 4200 recognized religions but I’m sure your god is the one.
That’s the problem Christians seem to want to legislate morals based on the Bible. That shouldn’t happen but here we are.
I wonder how many other Republican have this kind of bimbo eruption held over their heads to go against the people that elected them?
If scum like Bannon is distancing himself from you, you’ve got a serious problem lol.
Roy Moore will be elected despite the resistance from both the left-wing’nuts and the right-wing’nuts’ as well…
No he backed luther strange.
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?
Listening to Rush this morning, he read several polls of likely Alabama voters and they haven’t abandoned Moore.
Sorry. Not buying the lies.
I will not participate in a lynching a man without his day in court.
I Will I Have Seen No Proof !!!
Yes he will . Roy is innocent It is those dam lying liberals doing this
