War Room host and former Trump advisor Steve Bannon weighed on the news that Rupert Murdoch was stepping down as chairman of the Fox Corp and News Corp board.
As The Daily Fetched reported earlier this week, Rupert Murdoch announced his son, Lachlan Murdoch, will become the sole chairman of both companies.
Bannon shared on his show:
“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.
Fox News announced Rupert Murdoch’s retirement on its air Thursday morning, with anchor Bill Hemmer praising the network’s founder.
“Rupert Murdoch created all of this and so much more across America and the globe,” Hemmer said.
“His life’s work has left an indelible imprint on the global media landscape. His contributions are both innumerable and extraordinary, and we thank him for letting us be a part of it all.”
“Without him, we would not be here,” anchor Dana Perino added.
