Steve Bannon Calls George H. W. Bush a 'Pervert' After Helping Trump Become President
In a screed against President George W. Bush, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon called Bush's father, President George H.W. Bush, a "pervert."
"I mean, the old man is a pervert. He’s a pervert. Grabbing these girls and grabbing their asses?” Bannon said to Vanity Fair. Numerous allegations of groping have been made against the elder Bush.
The comments raised eyebrows because Bannon was an active Trump campaign leader after the release of the Access Hollywood tape in which Trump brags about committing sexual assault.
During the same interview in which Bannon called Bush a pervert, he criticized former RNC chairman Reince Priebus for his outrage at Trump's predatory behavior displayed on the leaked tape: "It was such an overreaction!"
Thirteen women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct since 2016, not including the three women who accused him in court and numerous women who say Trump invaded women's dressing rooms.
