Steve Bannon drank his own Kool aid & didn't realize a judge wouldn't buy his talk



"It's kind of remarkable," said Green. "It's a huge comedown for Bannon. You know, we started this process last October, when he was hit with a subpoena, vowing to 'go medieval' on his enemies, that was his quote. He said he would make it a 'misdemeanor from hell' for the Biden administration. But he wound up not even taking the stand in his own defense today, and a wound up with two guilty charges. So, I think it shows the bubble that he's been living in for the past six months, where you know, all the misinformation, all the kinds of things he has been propagating, I think he's sort of drank his own Kool-Aid in the end, and didn't understand, or didn't want to face the fact that he is in a court of law and that sort of thing isn't going to fly, and the judge made that clear, the jury made that clear."

"But one of the refrains I heard was that Bannon, until today, never faced accountability for his actions," continued Green. "If you remember, two years ago, he ducked criminal charges for his alleged involvement in a scheme to build a privately-funded border wall. But at the last minute, he finagled a pardon from Trump. I think he's gone on so far in life, being able to talk his way out of situations, and not really having to face a body like this that has real powers to hold him accountable, that he just didn't think through what it was he was doing. And I think you see the consequences of that with the verdict today."

Living the far right cray cray bubble of delusion gets a bit awkward when you face real world consequences - couldn't have happened to a nicer fella!

2. I see he got a haircut.

Funny how all the guys get a haircut when they go to court as a defendant.
He’s got a jacket on too but I couldn’t tell how many shirts.
