Steve Bannon, former White House Chief Strategist turned Conservative enforcer, delivered a motivating speech to supporters. We think you’ll want to hear it.
Bannon left his job at the White House because he felt he could do more for his party from the trenches, fighting against liberal injustices. Though Trump expressed his grief to see Bannon go, it seems the Breit Bart executive chairman was right.
In the heart of liberal country (aka California), Steve Bannon delivered a brilliant speech that left supporters enthralled. It was said that you could feel the energy fill the room. The crowd was so pleased with Bannon’s performance they gave the speaker three standing ovations.
When Bannon entered the dining room he was greeted with applause, a theme that continued with more applause throughout his forty minute speech at this dinner packed with GOP donors, activists and smattering of elected officeholders. One notable dinner guest who came in from out of town was controversial former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, of Arizona. While Orange County is represented by four GOP Members of Congress – Ed Royce (R-Fullerton), Dana Rohrabacher (R-Costa Mesa), Darrell Issa (R-Vista) and Mimi Walters (R-Irvine) – none of them were in attendance.
As Bannon’s remarks concluded, the buzz and energy in the room were palpable. Reactions to the speech were effusive:
“He talked to us like we were adults and I think that terrifies the elitists,” said Jan Leja, the head of the San Bernardino County Republican Party. “And he’s not afraid to talk to us like adults and I think that was refreshing.”
Jim Lacy, a delegate from Orange County said that “Everything that Steve Bannon said about the leadership of President Trump was right on the mark – and his honest predictions about the long-term detrimental impacts of California becoming a sanctuary state.”
