He’s heard of freedom of the press, right??
On Wednesday, Donald Trump‘s chief White House strategist Steve Bannon gave a rare interview to The New York Times where he basically took a massive dump on all media outlets.
Specifically, the former executive chair of Breitbart News says publications should be “embarrassed” for predicting Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 election when she, of course, was defeated by the businessman.
The conservative said:
“The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while.”
“I want you to quote this… The media here is the opposition party. They don’t understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States.”
Holy shit. Calling news outlets “the opposition party”???? That’s scary AF!!
He even slams the very newspaper he’s giving an interview to:
“The paper of record for our beloved republic, The New York Times, should be absolutely ashamed and humiliated… They got it 100 percent wrong.”
Wow, this guy sounds like a HUGE asshole!
As we reported, Representative Lamar Smith had similar words when he said the American public should get their news directly from Trump, and completely avoid all news publications!
Sorry y’all! We’re not going anywhere!
