Steve Bannon rips Mike Pence after Trump criticizes, calls him ‘coward’
“War Room: Pandemic” podcaster Steve Bannon has attacked former Vice President Mike Pence after he made criticisms of former President Donald Trump during the 2020 election.
Bannon, a top Trump political adviser, criticized Pence after the speech the former vice president gave Thursday regarding the counting of electoral votes from states in question had changed the procedure. continue to vote before the election.
“Our founders are extremely skeptical of the power consolidated in the nation’s capital and are very concerned about foreign interference if presidential elections are decided in the capital.” he said in a speech to the Federation of Federations.
“But there are people in our party who believe that as chair of a joint session of Congress, I have the right to unilaterally refuse electoral college votes. And I heard this week, President Trump said that I have the power to ‘overturn the election’. President Trump was wrong… I have no right to overturn the election,” insisted Pence.
“The presidency belongs to the American people, and only to the American people. And frankly, there is no more un-American idea than the notion that anyone can choose the president of the United States,” he said.
“Under the Constitution, I have no power to change the outcome of our election. And Kamala Harris won’t have the power to overturn the election when we beat them in 2024,” he said.
Those remarks disappointed Bannon.
“Well,” he said on his Friday podcast. “That’s not what President Trump said. What President Trump is saying is that you have every right to go back to the states. “
“Pence, I’ll take this to my grave eventually, okay? Because it’s a sign of shame, and you’re a rock-cold coward,” Bannon continued.
“My head is exploding,” he added, referring to Pence’s Chief of Staff, Marc Short while appearing to have a caress with longtime conservative advocates, the Koch family.
“I can’t get Pence and Marc Short and all these Kochs to kick President Trump onto Capitol Hill right now,” he said.
