Steve Bannon Gets Roasted For Delivering Speech to Just 38 People: ‘Like a Bad SNL Skit’
Fourteen months ago, Steve Bannon had a key job in the White House — chief strategist for President Donald Trump. Now? He’s giving speeches to just a handful of people.
Bannon, on Monday night, spoke on Staten Island in New York at a screening of his documentary Trump at War. According to the New York Daily News, just 38 people showed up.
The News reports that Bannon said he didn’t mind the sparse turnout.
“You want grassroots leaders,” Bannon said, according to the News. “You don’t need massive events.”
A massive event, this was not. And Twitter noticed. The former White House chief strategist was roasted roasted for the puny crowd size:

“Steve Bannon on Staten Island” sounds like the title of a scathing Esquire profile.
