Fox News host Bob Beckel doesn’t like Steve Bannon, but doesn’t want people to call the senior White House strategist a “white supremacist.”
“I suppose using the word ‘white supremacist’ without having proof beyond the fact, that in the web page, there were some white supremacists who wrote some things,” Beckel told co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle.
“I don’t like Bannon,” Beckel confessed. “I don’t like any of them. That is not the point.”
Guilfoyle argued that Bannon isn’t a white supremacist and to accuse him of such is outright slander from Democratic Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi who referred to him as such.
“It’s really conduct unbecoming,” she continued. “[Pelosi] has no proof to back that up. It shows the depths that they will go to try to disparage someone and the desperation, really, of the liberals. And I’m so sorry, Bob, but, your party right now.”
Bannon is often known as a whisperer of the “alt-right.”

Kobe Bryant’s helicopter not equipped with vital warning system
The helicopter that crashed into a Los Angeles hillside killing NBA legend Kobe Bryant and eight others, was not equipped with vital software that alerts pilots when aircraft are too close to the ground, officials said.
The terrain awareness and warning system (TAWS), which is designed to send a warning when a collision appears imminent, had not been installed on Bryant's Sikorsky S-76 helicopter, the National Transport Safety Board's (NTSB) Jennifer Homendy said.
"Certainly, TAWS could have helped," NBC News reported Homendy as saying, adding that she could not conclude that its use would have prevented the crash.
