Steve Bannon hammered former President George W. Bush and his administration in a speech on Friday night at a banquet for the California Republican Party.
“President Bush, to me, embarrassed himself,” Bannon told the crowd, referring to a speech the former president gave in New York on Thursday that seemed to take shots at President Donald Trump.
Bannon said that Bush’s speechwriter wrote a speech for the former president that Bush didn’t comprehend when he was delivering it.
“It was clear he didn’t understand anything he was talking about,” he said. “He has no earthly idea of whether he’s coming or going, just like it was when he was President of the United States.”
Bannon apologized to fans of the 43rd president before adding that “there has not been a more destructive presidency than George Bush’s.”
The former chief strategist for President Trump accused Bush and the Clintons of giving rise to China as a world economic power, which he called “a strategic mistake of incalculable problems.”
Bannon’s speech was a direct response to the speech former President Bush said that America has “seen nationalism distorted into nativism, forgotten the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America.”
Bush championed globalism and, while never mentioning the current president’s name, warned of “the return of isolationist sentiments.”
