Poor Steve Bannon.
As the Hunter Biden hard drive story is lowered into the grave of failed October surprises, he’s run out of options to insert his “influence” into the election media cycle. Having failed to re-create his media manipulation successes of 2016, the former White House chief strategist is melting down and attacking his would-be allies.
In the past few days, he’s lambasted Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, Attorney General William Barr, and even Donald Trump himself, calling them “weak” for not pushing for, or bringing about, the immediate firing of FBI Director Christopher Wray.
On October 29, Bannon attacked Giuliani even though they’ve been working together to launder the bogus story that first appeared in the New York Post, calling him “one of the weak guys around” Trump.
Bannon also attacked Attorney General Bill Barr, asking Giuliani why a special prosecutor hasn’t been appointed and questioning whether Barr is “another weak link in this chain.”
On October 28, Bannon said that “the president is showing weakness” by not immediately firing Wray.
In Bannon world, Bannon cannot fail; he can only be failed. Either way, no one is listening.
