The next truth bomb dropped by Washington Post reporters Robert Costa and Bob Woodward in their new book has been spilling all kinds of tea about Donald Trump’s final weeks in office, but it’s a very explosive one.
During an interview with MSNBC, the two authors presented an extract from their book outlining how Trump’s stooge Steve Bannon convened a “war-room“-style meeting the night before the insurgency on January 6th. Both Bannon and Rudy Giuliani reportedly camped overnight at the Willard Hotel, just a few blocks from the White House, and talked with several key allies of the president before his rally incited a violent mob to invade Capitol Hill, according to Costa and Woodward.
“Bannon had actually been in close touch with President Trump for days before January 6th,” Costa alleged. “Based on our reporting, he privately told President Trump to have a reckoning on January 6th. And he said to the president, ‘It’s time to kill the Biden presidency in the crib.’”
After seeing how things went out for Trump after the riots, you’d think Bannon would want to remove himself from such an ominous and damning statement, but it appears the former political strategist has no qualms about connecting himself to a traitorous insurrection. Bannon proudly took credit for the chaos Trump caused with his baseless voter fraud allegations on his conservative radio show Wednesday morning. He played a clip of the two journalists detailing his involvement in the Jan. 6th insurgency before proudly taking credit for the chaos Trump caused with his baseless voter fraud allegations.
“Yeah, because [of] his legitimacy,” Bannon said after Costa’s allegation that he wanted to kill Biden’s presidency before it began. “Just look at what this illegitimate regime is doing. It killed itself. OK? But we told you from the very beginning, just expose it, just expose it, never back down, never give up and this thing will implode.”
Ahh, to have the confidence of an aging white man who knows he’ll probably never have to face the consequences of trying to topple our country’s democracy.
