Chris Christie Trashes Steve Bannon For Questioning His Loyalty To Trump

In that 60 Minutes interview that aired Sunday evening, former White House Chief Strategist Bannon said Christie's failure to adequately defend Trump following last summer's release of the controversial 2005 tape precluded the governor from consideration for a cabinet position.

It was a rare TV interview for the Trump strategist who has largely stayed in the shadows and who got ousted in August.

The New Jersey governor also pointed out that he was at Trump's side through 'Billy Bush weekend, ' working with the candidate on debate prep on Friday, when the news broke, and on Saturday too.

While the interview was not particularly eye opening it did confirm who we all thought he was, Noah said: a radical nationalist who believes Trump will be instrumental in "tearing down the establishment".


"Billy Bush Saturday was a litmus test", Bannon had told Rose. 'When you side with him, you have to side with him.

"My intent, as it's always been-not as someone who was only Donald Trump's friend for a year, as Mr. Bannon was, but for somebody like me who's been his friend for 15 years-I want him to be a successful president first and foremost for this country". And that's what Billy Bush weekend showed me'.

"Poor Billy Bush! Noah sympathized. It's like rebranding the JFK assassination as Motorcade Driver's Bad Day". "But, just for fun, we called a professional genealogist who found out that Steve Bannon's great-great grandfather Lawrence Bannon arrived in the USA from Ireland by the 1850s, at a time when America's borders were so open that Irishmen could walk into the country with no passports, no visas, no background checks of any kind".

While Chris Christie and Steve Bannon are now forced to support Donald Trump mostly from afar, their distance has not dimmed their apparent affection for the president-or their eagerness to tear each other down in the process.
