Steve Bannon Calls For Annual 'MAGA Day' To Celebrate Trump

The NYT interview reveals as awful a person as you would expect, and the Dictator Trump that Bannon wants to see realized.

STEVE BANNON: ...Nov. 8 of 2016 is just one moment in time. You know. We celebrated today in the Trump movement as MAGA Day. Right? A high holy day. On the radio today, we had things from Breitbart; people on Facebook (inaudible) do anything. It’s MAGA Day. And we’ll celebrate it like Bastille Day going forward.

But a year, you know, a year later, the governor of Virginia lost. It’s a blue state. Everything like that. But I keep telling people: Every day is going to be a struggle. You’re going to win some and you’re going to lose some, but it’s a process. It’s a process. So the process now goes why is Mitch McConnell? Because the Senate and Mitch McConnell have been the — the most outrageous in their lack of support of President Trump’s agenda.

Steve Bannon's interview is as bad as you might expect. On the Tiki Torch Nazis chanting Trump's name:

BANNON: [Trump] is the least racist guy I’ve ever met. And nothing in the campaign, and nothing that he’s done to date. That’s all that’s all left wing. That’s MSNBC nonsense. And by the way, you can’t help with a couple of, these guys are marginalia to marginalia. Right? So they’ll grab onto anything — and by the way, every time they say Trump’s name, MSNBC has got a camera on it and The New York Times has an article on it, right? Because you’re obsessed with it.

PETERS: You’re saying it’s a media fabrication.

BANNON: Absolutely, a hundred percent it’s a hundred percent media fabrication. And, by the way, because they realize that they think the only way they can run is by smearing you to be a nativist, a misogynist, a racist, a homophobe. Just go down the line.

On how Trump handled Charlottesville with his "on many sides" Nazi coddling:

BANNON: I think he handled it perfectly.

Twitter had a few things to say as #MAGADay trended:
