WATCH LIVE: TRUMP HOLDS WHITE HOUSE PRESS CONFERENCE

Tucker Carlson: Bannon One of the Few in Trump WH Who ‘Wouldn’t Feel at Home’ in a Clinton WH

Tucker Carlson tonight opened his show with the news of Steve Bannon White House departure and how he was one of the few there who actually wanted to carry out the agenda Trump was elected on.

As he put it, “Bannon was one of the relatively few senior staff in the White House who wouldn’t feel at home in a Hillary Clinton administration.”

“Indeed, he was one of the rare Republicans there,” Carlson continued, “and the only, or one of the very few, populist conservatives. That’s strange, since populist conservatism is the platform his boss ran on.”

Bannon himself said earlier today, “The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over.”

Carlson pushed back against “ludicrous” attacks on Bannon from the left before concluding thusly:

“Say what you will about Steve Bannon––and you can say a lot––but he never forgot why Trump got elected in the first place and in a democracy that is not a small thing. Bannon kept a white board in his office of campaign promises. It’s probably already been taken down by now.”
