STEVE BANNON (HOST): Yesterday, let's be brutally frank, the whip operation under Speaker Johnson has got to get better. That was a - not the way to perform. Now, we fought for Israel having to have an offset for the Israel arms bill, but that wasn't even handled properly, I didn't think.

But the impeachment of Mayorkas - and if Gallagher is telling the truth and hey, who knows, let's give him the benefit of the doubt. He's telling people - he told Hugh Hewitt this morning he had been no, for a month. Now we had Marjorie Taylor Greene on here and others, we were very involved with people, others that were working on this. I think they would say that's news to them. So, somehow inside the leadership apparatus of Speaker Johnson and Speaker Johnson has got to understand something, brother, your last easy day was yesterday. It's only going to get harder from here.

And I keep saying write in your calendar 1 March because that's got to be the hill you die on. There cannot be another CR.

Force him on three major items that have to happen to shut the border immediately. You don't need all of HR 2. And that'll just be an excuse for take months and months and months. Let's rectify this.

But Speaker Johnson - and I don't know if it's Gaetz, I don't know who's, I don't know if Stefanik, I don't know. Somebody's got to get in and help this guy because he's bleeding out and he's bleeding out now just from the basic mechanics of what you have to do. And as I say, Gallagher told Hugh Hewitt this morning, I told the whip a month ago I was a no, that's just inexcusable then.
