Steve Bannon turned himself in to the police on Monday after being indicted on criminal contempt charges for blowing off a subpoena issued by the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th Capitol riots.
Talking about Bannon's appearance, MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace and former Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) mocked Trump for making someone who was constantly "disheveled" as his White House's top political strategist.
"First of all, I think there's something that is hysterically funny about the fact that Donald Trump, who was so focused on how people looked, that they are perfectly groomed and specially cast for the part," said McCaskill. "And this slob, this disheveled slob is his face — nobody cutting a swath of handsomeness and crisply tailored suits. This guy looks like he just rolled out of bed with a hangover. It is ridiculous that this is the face of Donald Trump."
She went on to cite another fact she finds "hysterical": The fact that Bannon is apparently blaming a former lawyer for his decision to not testify before the January 6th committee.
"We're giving him a lot of attention. Hopefully, it goes away quickly," McCaskill continued. "But guess what his defense is? A sniveling little coward, little fraidy-cat 'My lawyer told me to do it.' He changed lawyers so he could blame his lawyer for his defense. Now, it wasn't that I'm doing this for America and I have a right to stand up. My lawyer made me do it. What a little coward. It's a joke."
