Republican strategist Rick Wilson brutally mocked former White House political strategist Steve Bannon on Wednesday shortly after Bannon was angrily denounced by President Donald Trump.
During a CNN panel on Wednesday, Wilson said that losing Trump’s favor meant that Bannon’s ability to influence American political discourse was about to be weakened dramatically.
“The only way his nationalist populist movement was going to take off if he had Donald Trump as the avatar and the leader of that movement,” Wilson said. “And now Steve Bannon is going to be reduced to preaching to alt-right Pepe the Frog meme boys at a booth in Denny’s.”
Elsewhere in the segment, Wilson mocked Ivanka Trump’s reported political ambitions — and was particularly dismissive of the idea that she would become the first woman president.
“I think that Ivanka Trump is much more likely to be driving a Volvo out to Danbury to be visiting her husband in the correctional facility than she is to become president of the United States at this point,” he said.
“Ouch!” said a visibly shocked Brooke Baldwin as fellow panelist Rick Santorum shook his head in disgust.

‘That’s the end of it’: Trump mocks impeachment as a ‘ridiculous project’ as House votes down resolution
Following a vote by the Democratic House to table an effort by Rep. Al Green (D-TX) to approve articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, the president gloatingly told reporters "that's the end of it," and mocked the resolution as a "ridiculous project."
"The House of Representatives rejecting a bid to launch impeachment proceedings against President Trump, and President Trump declaring victory," reported CNN's Erin Burnett. "Telling reporters seconds ago 'We've just received an overwhelming vote against impeachment, and that's the end of it.' He went on to call it the 'most ridiculous project.' Riding high now over how the whole saga over his racist tweets is playing out."
This explains why Trump picked a fight with the four Congresswomen of color: analysis
On one hand, President Donald Trump almost certainly chose to mark out Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) because of his own deep-seated racism.
But there is likely another reason he is doing it, wrote Aaron Blake of the Washington Post's "The Fix" on Wednesday: because his core voters hate them as much as he does.
Blake cited a new The Economist/YouGov poll of 2016 Trump voters' opinions on several politicians. "As you peruse it, it becomes clear that the conventional wisdom about why Trump picked these targets is right: They were ripe for motivating the GOP base ... All of them are better known among Republicans than Democrats, which suggests that a steady stream of coverage in conservative media has elevated them as potential Democratic bogeywomen. Trump is tilling fertile soil. And in fact, they might already be his most effective foils."
