Bannon on #60Minutes: ‘Hillary Clinton’s Not Very Bright’ (VIDEO)
Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon appeared on 60 Minutes with Charlie Rose and discussed a myriad of topics, from the GOP establishment trying to nullify Trump’s presidency to Hillary Clinton not being as smart as liberals always say she is . . .
“Her very first speech when she came off the beach was nonsense,” Bannon begins to Rose, “and this goes with something I want to address with you: Hillary Clinton’s not very bright.”
Bannon continues to describe the ways in which she failed during the election, and beyond.
“Everybody says she’s so smart, so much smarter than Donald Trump . . . She doesn’t really have a grasp, she doesn’t have a grasp on what’s important and what’s not – and that’s what’s essential in a leader. Donald Trump has a grasp on what’s important and what’s marginalia.”
Rose then pressed Bannon the ethno-nationalist descriptor she pinned to Breitbart and others on the New Right, but Bannon was quick to shut down the impending smear.
Rose asks, “Cause you want no part of ethno-nationalism?”
Bannon replies quickly, “That’s ridiculous on the face of it, it’s absurd . . .”
Rose: “You don’t want any part of any of those people?”
Bannon: “Not only is it morally wrong, it’s also totally irrelevant. Economic nationalism is what this country was built on, it’s the American system . . .”
