The story in The Atlantic about Steve Bannon resulted in a day’s worth of coverage of Bannon on MSNBC. This segment begins with clips from MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” with the Bush acolyte Nicole Wallace, including her interview with Atlantic author Jennifer Senior. The arrogance and elitism is dripping off both of them, as they seem shocked by the idea that Bannon wants to involve the Deplorables in the halls of power. Starting at 4:35, you can hear Bannon’s response.
“All they want is democracy, democracy, democracy. But democracy is predicated on people working at the institutions of democracy. … This is what civic life is based on. … The elites are just in shock that people would put the channel changer down and go volunteer.”
