At a speech in New Hampshire Thursday night, GOP strategist Steve Bannon compared the accusations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to the release of President Trump’s infamous “Access Hollywood” video during the 2016 election.
“By the way, the Bezos Amazon Washington Post that dropped that dime on Donald Trump is the same Bezos Amazon Washington that dropped a dime this afternoon on Judge Roy Moore,” Bannon said. “Is that a coincidence? That’s what I mean when I say it’s the opposition party. It’s purely part of the apparatus of the opposition party. It’s not a fair and free media anymore … I don’t like it. But I think it’s a strange coincidence.”
Bannon called it the “politics of self-destruction.”
