With a new paperback edition out of Josh Green’s book “Devil’s Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency,” Politico published excerpts suggesting that Steve Bannon thinks Oprah Winfrey may be an “existential threat” to Donald Trump.
The report quotes the following passage from the book:
“Bannon thought Oprah might represent an existential threat to Trump’s presidency if she decided to campaign for Democrats in 2018. She’d flip the House and they’d race to impeach him. But the movement was bigger than Oprah. ‘The anti-patriarchy movement is going to undo ten thousand years of recorded history,’ he said. ‘You watch. The time has come. Women are gonna take charge of society. And they couldn’t juxtapose a better villain than Trump. He is the patriarch. This’ — the Golden Globe Awards [including Oprah’s speech – see it below] — ‘is a definitional moment in the culture. It’ll never be the same going forward.’”
