STEVE BANNON (HOST): That is not from the War Room's lips, that is from the Morning Joe and their top legal analyst at MSNBC. She says it right there. The purpose of this is to shut down this show because this show has become such a powerful platform for MAGA and President Trump. They're saying the quiet part out loud. This is what all the lawfare is about. 

OK, I want to reset about yesterday, not about me or not about President Trump in regards to his legal, but about what's really happening here, this coalition. President Trump goes out to Arizona for the first time in two years, 20 months, and I think the first time in four years to Phoenix. Charlie Kirk is going to join me at the bottom of the hour, Dream City Church, it's got to be 5 or 6,000 people it looks like. It is massive. President Trump – full spectrum dominance and then he does the Q & A at the end, and I told Jason and Cheung and the team yesterday that I thought the Q & A was magnificent. The cross section of America and their concerns and the smart questions and President Trump's response was unbelievable. 

You had Dr. Phil come in, it was in the cold open in the beginning, Dr. Phil, full endorsement. 50 Cent, they ask him why are all Black men voting for President Trump? You had David Sacks — President Trump flew from Phoenix to the Bay Area — David Sacks, one of the most influential venture capitalists and finance guys, very close to Thiel and that crowd, very close to Elon Musk, has a big podcast, David Sacks, and I've got up, I don't know if my team has it, David Sacks goes on Twitter and literally gives it looks like a 10,000 word, very well thought through, he calls it the A-B test. Very sophisticated. I need Grace and Mo to get that out to everybody, everybody has to read this, it's one of the smartest guys in the country. 

And then you have Russell Brand. Former Buddhist, now born again, just baptized into the Christian faith. Russell Brand. If Russell Brand says flat out — his whole show is built upon freedom — remember, he's a hardcore lefty, his whole show, he transformed during the pandemic, got one of the biggest podcasts in the world. What does Russell Brand says, to save democracy, to save your freedom, to save your liberty, you got to vote for Donald Trump. 

That, ladies and gentlemen, is a hell of a day. And that shows you the coalition that's being built.
