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.'”

GOP senator flops hard when CNN’s Tapper asks him to name one case where Trump cared about foreign corruption
Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) on Friday furiously tried to deflect when CNN's Jake Tapper asked him to name one instance other than Ukraine where President Donald Trump held up foreign aid to a country because he was concerned it was not fighting corruption.
During an interview, Tapper asked Lankford if he agreed that Trump's primary concern in holding up military assistance to Ukraine was because he sincerely wanted to root out corruption in the country rather than urge it to investigate his political opponents.
"Yes, I do actually think he's concerned about corruption and the people of Ukraine," the senator replied.
