Groveling Bannon apologizes to Trump and Don Jr. in Sunday morning mea culpa
In a statement to Axios, former White House adviser Steve Bannon apologized to President Donald Trump on Sunday morning saying, “My support is unwavering for the president and his agenda.”
After a week in which Bannon has seen his star fall in the wake of comments he made to author Michael Wolff — and the threat of being booted from Breitbart — Bannon offered up apologies to Trump as well as his son who he had accused of “treason.”
“Donald Trump, Jr. is both a patriot and a good man. He has been relentless in his advocacy for his father and the agenda that has helped turn our country around,” he wrote, adding, “My support is also unwavering for the president and his agenda — as I have shown daily in my national radio broadcasts, on the pages of Breitbart News and in speeches and appearances from Tokyo and Hong Kong to Arizona and Alabama.”
“My comments about the meeting with Russian nationals came from my life experiences as a Naval officer stationed aboard a destroyer whose main mission was to hunt Soviet submarines to my time at the Pentagon during the Reagan years when our focus was the defeat of ‘the evil empire’ and to making films about Reagan’s war against the Soviets and Hillary Clinton’s involvement in selling uranium to them,” he continued, before attempting to quash comments he made about Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.
“Everything I have to say about the ridiculous nature of the Russian ‘collusion’ investigation I said on my 60 Minutes interview. There was no collusion and the investigation is a ‘witch hunt,'” he stated.
