Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough repeatedly called Steve Bannon “President Bannon” on his show Friday: “TIME magazine was right: Steve Bannon is the president of the United States.”
“He has gone in. Donald Trump doesn’t know anything about policy. Donald Trump doesn’t know anything about politics. Donald Trump doesn’t know anything about anything. He can get up and give a good speech. You listen to him talk about any topic and he wanders from sentence to sentence to sentence. So Steve Bannon is now the President of the United States. And that was more clear yesterday than ever before.”
Scarborough also suggested that “President Bannon” was the source behind the negative leaks on Jared Kushner and his ties to Russia, noting that Bannon bragged about having damaging information on Trump’s son-in-law in the days leading up to the reports that Kushner was being looked at by the FBI.
