A few months ago CBS Anchor Charlie Rose interviewed former President Trump Campaign Strategist Steve Bannon on 60 Minutes. During the interview the Billy Bush tape was discussed where President Trump was recorded saying that women let him grab them anywhere since he’s a celebrity. The video was years old when presented on all the mainstream media (MSM) outlets late in the campaign just a few weeks before the election.
President Trump and Steve Bannon responded to the Bush tape by having a press conference in St. Louis a few days later on a Sunday shortly before the 2nd debate with Hillary Clinton. President Trump did what no politician has ever done – he hit back – HARD – and Bannon had much to do with it.
On that Sunday President Trump invited the media to a pre-debate presser. The media was non- stop about the video claiming Trump was finished. The reporters thought they were going to a pre-debate photo op with Donald Trump. They walked in on Trump sitting with Clinton rape victims. Trump held a presser with Paula Jones, Kathy Shelton, Juanita Broaddrick & Kathleen Willey—
TRUMP PUNKED THE PRESS!
This all occurred a few hours before the 2nd debate. The liberal MSM thought again that they had finally knocked Donald Trump out of the race. This was their October surprise. What the MSM could not see was that the Clinton campaign could not win an argument about abusing women. Bill Clinton, the Democrat candidate’s ‘husband’, was the world’s most notorious womanizer and Trump reminded us all that this was the fact.
In the 60 minutes interview with Bannon, Charlie Rose revisited the Billy Bush tape. He shamed Bannon for his support of candidate Trump during this time and ridiculed President Trump for the video when interviewing Bannon.
Rose started a segment of the interview off with a comment to Bannon that Americans “do care about respect for women”. There was some discussion then Rose asked Bannon in a confronting manner, “Are you trying to destroy somebody when you are just repeating something they said?”
Rose continued – When you run the tape which is a news item they are not trying to destroy somebody, they simply
Bannon – Charlie, give me a break!…
Bannon next mentioned that bringing the Clinton accusers into the press conference before the 2nd debate.
Rose – That was your deal. You really wanted to do it. Why?
Bannon- Because I thought if you are going to go after Donald Trump for his words, let’s have the Clinton’s defend Clinton’s actions.
