MSNBC panel mocks Steve Bannon after he bizarrely declares ‘the end of the patriarchy’

Published

on

On Friday, former White House adviser Steve Bannon sat down with MSNBC’s Ari Melber in an exclusive interview.

During the interview, Bannon gave contradicting support for the Time’s Up movement and the #MeToo movement.

He first called the Time’s Up movement the  “end of the patriarchy.”  When asked by Melber to clarify, he said, “I’m not 100 percent with it, but I can see how it is powerful.”

Center for American Progress president Neera Tanden slammed him as being a charlatan.

“Let me just say on the whole issue of Time’s Up, I might agree with him in the power of the Time’s Up movement, but frankly, the idea that you can talk about the Time’s Up movement in any positive term, and then support Donald Trump, who is credibly accused by 16 women and Roy Moore who was accused of basically pedophilia demonstrates that he’s a charlatan,” Tanden said.

The Root’s political editor, Jason Johnson, said he sounded crazy.

“The core of what he was saying is nonsense,” Johnson said. “He sounds like a pimp saying, ‘Hey, I got a great plan for you to pay for your college tuition.'”

Former white supremacist Christian Picciolini noted in an interview with MSNBC Sunday that the United States is dealing with a severe domestic terrorism problem, but that the Donald Trump administration is asleep at the wheel.

Since the El Paso shooting, there have been more than 30 thwarted mass shootings and at least two of those were directly related to domestic terrorism. Luckily state and local police were able to step in, and Americans have been more likely to warn law enforcement about possible attacks.

President Donald Trump has an early morning meeting Monday with Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi. He also has a full day of meeting with the G-7, but that wasn't his focus in the early morning hours.

"My Stock Market gains must be judged from the day after the Election (sic), November 9, 2016, where the Market went up big after the win, and because of the win. Had my opponent won, CRASH!" Trump tweeted Sunday night in the U.S., which was nearly 2 a.m. in France where the president is staying during the G-7 summit.

My Stock Market gains must be judged from the day after the Election, November 9, 2016, where the Market went up big after the win, and because of the win. Had my opponent won, CRASH!

Published

An MSNBC panel couldn't help but laugh and joke at the news that President Donald Trump asked if hurricanes could be stopped with a nuclear bomb.

The incident reportedly took place after multiple hurricanes hit the U.S. numerous times. Axios reporter Jonathan Swan told MSNBC Sunday that scientists did research the question in 1961, but the conspiracy has persisted and that there is a factsheet dispelling the myth on the National Geographic's website.
