Defending Steve Bannon – an American Deplorable

I want to say something about the departure of Steve Bannon -- more like a public lynching.

Steve Bannon is a good man and he served his president well, contrary to what you might hear from liberal Republicans or the Mainstream Media.

I've never had a chance to meet the man personally - but I've studied his work. And I am confident to say he is not a flaming racist, nor is he Islamophobic or homophobic or xenophobic.

Bannon is a man who loves his nation. He's worn the uniform of this country - served in the Navy with distinction.

And yet - his name has been smeared - his character and reputation dragged through the swamp. And I suspect it was an inside hit job -- taken out by Establishment Republicans and Closet Democrats. I warned President Trump - that when you drain the swamp - you still have to contend with the snakes and vipers.

I'm concerned ladies and gentlemen -- because the Conservatives within the Trump White House are dropping like flies. And whether or not the president is aware -- he is surrounding himself with the very liberals he once despised on the campaign trial. The most liberals being Ivanka and Jared Kushner.

The New York Times wrote a piece about Bannon’s departure noting he did not believe in giving ground to critics. That’s one of the things I admired about Bannon. He’s not afraid to take a stand.

That's what enraged the Mainstream Media. They could not get under Bannon’s skin and they could not get under Trump's skin. He gave as good -- if not better-- than he got. That was Steve Bannon – a fellow deplorable.

So the question of the hour -- who is left in the Trump White House -- to defend all of us gun-toting, Bible-clinging, Deplorables?
