Former White House chief strategist and unapologetic Roy Moore supporter Stephen Bannon called former President George H.W. Bush a “pervert” after he issued an apology in October stating that he “patted women’s rears in what he intended to be a good-natured manner.”
“I really detest them,” Bannon said in an interview with Vanity Fair published Thursday, referring to the two former Bush presidents. “I mean, the old man is a pervert. He’s a pervert. Grabbing these girls and grabbing their asses?”
Bannon also accussed the second Bush administration of shrugging off criticism over the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
“And by the way. I haven’t even gotten to 9/11,” Bannon said. “I mean, 9/11! Think about if 9/11 had happened on Trump’s watch. We would have gotten 100 percent of the blame by the Bush guys. And they said, well, we just got here.”
“What do you mean you just got here? That’s what gets me about them coming after Trump,” Bannon added.
“The Bush presidency is the most destructive presidency in history. James Buchanan included. It’s not even close,” Bannon claimed.
Bannon supported Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, who faced multiple allegations of sexual misconduct with young teenage girls before losing the election to Doug Jones (D) by about 1.5 percent of the vote.
