While most people have forgotten about one-time “White House Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor to the President” Steve Bannon, documentary filmmaker Alison Klaymon decided Bannon’s post-White House life deserved documenting.
The Brink premiered at The Sundance Film Festival Wednesday and takes a low-key, fly on the wall view of Bannon’s daily life post-Trump administration. Now quotes from Bannon that appear in the film are gaining traction.
At one point Bannon stated:
“There’s no glamour to the job. I hated every second I was there.”
“The West Wing has bad karma to it. They say, ‘Because you were doing bad stuff!’ But I was doing the Lord’s work.”
“There’s no glamour to the job. I hated every second I was there,” Bannon says. https://t.co/j9NaZ4TxGj

Bannon was not alone in his feelings about his time at the White House and people quickly let it be known.
…we did too.

Many did not miss Bannon after his departure from the limelight after his dismissal by both Trump and the company he founded.
How can we miss you if you won’t go away…ugh..GO AWAY.
