Steve Bannon at CPAC: ‘Is That The Opposition Party Back There?’

By Chris Ariens 

At the start of their joint appearance at CPAC today, White House senior adviser Steve Bannon and chief of staff Reince Priebus, were asked about their relationship. “I’m looking in the back of the room,” said CPAC’s Matt Schlapp. “Is that the opposition party?” Bannon interrupted, using his term to describe the media.

You look at the opposition party and how they betrayed the campaign, and now betraying the administration, it’s always wrong. On the first day that Kellyanne and I started it’s the same team that was grinding away on the campaign, the same team that did the transition. The campaign was the most chaotic by the media’s description, most unprofessional, didn’t have any idea what they were doing, then you saw them crying and weeping that night on Nov. 8.

“It’s not only not going to get better, it’s going to get worse every day,” said Bannon, about the media’s coverage of the administration. “The corporatist, globalist media are adamantly opposed to an economic nationalist agenda like Donald Trump has.”
