Bannon doubts Dems can match Trump on debate stage
By John Bowden - 09/08/19 07:01 AM EDT

Former White House strategist Stephen Bannon said in a new interview that he doubts any of the announced 2020 Democratic primary candidates could stand up to President Trump.

In an interview with AM 970's The Answer in New York, Bannon told host John Catsimatidis that Democrats' failure to address foreign policy on the debate stage, particularly concerning China, would be their downfall.


“The key to the Democrats right now … is that they really don’t talk about foreign affairs or national security. It’s like they’re running for student council president. Eventually they’re going to have to wake up to the fact that climate change may be a problem in the long term, but right now you have an existential threat today by the Chinese Communist Party," Bannon said.

Well, they certainly won't match his word soup...... I've never heard anyone, politician or not, who muddles as much as he does.

Well, maybe Joe once in a while, but I'm pretty sure he's not going to be the nominee......

Look, having nuclear—my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart—you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I'm one of the smartest people anywhere in the world—it’s true!—but when you're a conservative Republican they try—oh, do they do a number—that’s why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune—you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged—but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me—it would have been so easy, and it’s not as important as these lives are (nuclear is powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what's going to happen and he was right—who would have thought?), but when you look at what's going on with the four prisoners—now it used to be three, now it’s four—but when it was three and even now, I would have said it's all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don't, they haven’t figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years—but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us.


You can’t make that up.    :shrug:

Why settle for a transcript, when you can view the hot mess, in all of its splendor?

I'm in for Trump; but if I were to debate him, there are all of these incidences that they say are false, where he has said things.

Previous presidents have been accused of this, there's plenty there. I find something that just seems outrageous to say or something like the intelligence photos said to be tweeted.

But the moderators set the tone, so I'm not sure how that works in.

Otherwise, I think he should be apt to debate.
