Steve Bannon, the host of War Room and a former advisor to President Trump, offered his perspective on Rupert Murdoch’s recent resignation as chairman of the Fox Corp and News Corp boards.
Rupert Murdoch made an announcement earlier this week regarding the appointment of his son, Lachlan Murdoch, as the sole chairman of both companies.
Bannon provided the following information during his broadcast:
“When you’re watching Fox, you’re not watching Fox….what you are watching is the Murdochs, okay.”
“The Murdochs have Paul Ryan on their Board for a reason,” Bannon said.
“That reason is that they are they controlled opposition, and they are the Uniparty, and they are going to put the Uniparty people up there,” he added.
“They were the ones that provided the media cover for the stealing…the calling in Arizona, to give the left-wing media coverage…to then flip all when we know they were stealing it overnight…and stealing in Arizona…and that was Fox and Rupert Murdoch.. that’s an unforgivable sin.”
“With everything that’s happened to President Trump, and that’s why I always refer to him as Cincinnatus…that figure in Roman history, the general that retired and went back to his farm and then came back again against everything about his family in his life,” Bannon said.
“And then in retirement came back to save Rome again,” Bannon added.
“That’s Donald Trump. They used to call Washington Cincinnatus,” Bannon continued.
“Trump is a modern Cincinnatus,” Bannon declared.
“if Trump just gone back to Mar-a-Lago and just, you know, run his business and bought more golf courses and built more hotels, none of this would be happening,” he added.
“That was directly because a hero came back to say “No, I need to continue to lead this movement, to save the Republic,” Bannon continued.
And what was Rupert Murdoch’s response to that? “We are going to make him a non-person.”
“Donald Trump is Cincinnatus and a hero to the American people and will go down in history as a hero.”
“And you, sir, are a foreign scumbag that has done nothing but destroy this country,” Bannon declared.
Rupert Murdoch’s retirement was officially announced by Fox News during its Thursday morning broadcast. During the announcement, anchor Bill Hemmer expressed admiration for the network’s founder.
“Without him, we would not be here,” anchor Dana Perino added.
