Steve Bannon Calls Ivanka Trump "Dumb as a Brick"

Updated on January 12, 2018

One needs to distinguish between real news and fake news. Fake news is when people reported that Steve Bannon enjoys road-kill raccoons by boiling them and cooking them into a ragu meat sauce for his spaghetti. Real news is when Steve Bannon indicated that his socialite daughter Ivanka Trump is “dumb as a brick.” Steve Bannon is not a conformist, his opinions embellish American nationalism. He isn’t afraid of using billionaires’ money in voicing his opinions in how America should be run.

Even with Rebekah Mercer, a co-owner of Breitbart, it shows that Steve Bannon has little patience for daughters that are spoiled and always go to daddy when they need help. However, Rebekah Mercer is somewhat different; she possesses a master’s degree from Stanford University in management science and engineering. For the gritty Bannon, he couldn’t care less, for in his own mind he considers Rebekah as just another daddy’s girl who has trouble counting to three. Bannon’s only motivation therefore towards the Mercer family was their billions and that their philosophical thinking corresponds to Bannon’s conventional wisdom of how America should operate.

The Mercers love philanthropy, donations, and goodwill. The real motivation may have to do with the fact that Rebekah’s father is not actually a billionaire; this has a lot of psychological effects in terms of gaining influence in the White House. Rebekah’s only Trump card was introducing Steve Bannon to Donald Trump. This allowed Bannon to escalate his vision towards the working class, even though Bernie Sanders had that vote locked into his pocket long ago. Therefore, Bannon’s only hope was the vast American swamp that is basically uneducated, Caucasian, and disenfranchised with the American dream.

One has to give Steve Bannon a lot of credit, but in Steve Bannon’s heart he knows very well that his dream was coming to an end because of Ivanka Trump. The first rule in Machiavelli politics is to never show your sentiment towards your enemies, especially if the Trump family is part of the West Wing’s circle of influence. Was Bannon correct in calling Ivanka Trump “dumb as a brick?”

Imagine if you fought hard all your life and all of a sudden your thrust into a malaise of Ivanka Trump influenced her father? Her upbringing would not suffice to the personality of a man who is simply destined to raise the conscious of the uneducated voter in winning their support. Steve Bannon only had to see how Donald Trump behaved towards his daughter rather than the First Lady who is expected to take the limelight of American causes.

When Ivanka Trump heard her father degrading women in an audio video, she asked her father to apologize in an effort to empower all women. Ivanka left the West Wing crying because her father refused to apologize while Steve Bannon observed from afar, Bannon was once again happy. Even when Trump went to his rallies after he became President, it was Bannon that gave Trump the agenda that the swamp loved to hear. Bannon would clench his fist and show his deepest respect to Donald Trump.

Steve Bannon called Mike Pence an “unfortunate necessity.” Trump, who hates to eat raccoons, would often mock Pence’s ultra conservative views. In terms of abortion, Trump apparently looked at Pence once stating, “You see? You’ve wasted all this time and energy on it, and it’s not going to end abortion anyway”. Also, when gay rights came up in a rally, Trump pointed to Pence and said, “Don’t ask that guy – he wants to hang them all!”

Can you imagine if Steve Bannon was President of the United States and was dealing with a stiff monotone yes-man who seems to always have his thumbs up anytime Bannon says anything off the cuff? He would naturally get rid of him even if he was the Vice-President. The personality profile of Mike Pence revealed he’s more a “conscientious deliberator” rather than a go-getter capable of dominating a political agenda. This is why Mike Pence was an unfortunate necessity for Donald Trump’s image.

Republicans’ visual concept of an American President is Mike Pence rather than Donald Trump. Mike Pence and Ivanka Trump are not the type of individuals that the white uneducated male can sit down and have a beer with. Trump knows that and that’s why he loves his hamburgers and good ol’ TV. Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner claimed they’re sacrificing their personal lives for America. This is why Steve Bannon called Ivanka Trump “dumb as a brick.” The word on the street is that Steve Bannon’s going to testify in a closed-door hearing, you can be sure that the first words that come out of his mouth are that Kushner and Ivanka Trump are actually “dumb as a brick.” It's obvious when Bannon testifies that he will bring his own lunch and offer the prosecutors leftover ragu raccoon spaghetti.

      Thank you for clarifying. I do not actually wear a bikini anymore. However when winter comes to Michigan I head south of the border for the winter, and spend most of my time on the beach. I watched the video. I admit it is very silly. LOL

      Sorry Sharon, it was based on the video of Ivanka wearing a bikini and blowing kisses, and acting immature.

      I will admit, you made me laugh. But I also must admit, I don't understand your comment? Are you asking me to wear a bikini and blow kisses? This seems very odd? Think I will just opt out of the conversation. LOL

      Sanxuary, What do you base your opinion of Ivanka on? She appears on the surface to be well educated, she has worked belong side her dad for many years. She keeps a busy schedule in Washington working for women as well as promoting jobs for women. One only need check out her facebook to view her daily daily schedule. No sure it fair to call her names. However, it seems many have the idea they can insult anyone over the internet. How would you like it if you were open game or one of your loved once? I guess I have as much right as you to insult. It sad some feel they can boost their own self worth by insulting others. Others that most certainly do not deserve to be scrutinized by mere strangers. However, it says a lot about the person behind glib insults...

      He never had to write it, we already new she was dumb as a brick. Banon is dumber then Ivanka because he did this to convince Trump that his house is such a mess that only he can clean it up. He thought if he hurt everyone that Trump would love him and he probably does. Only one problem, he was meaner then Trump and stole his spot light and no one does this to Trump.

      As a rule I don't predict or speculate. However, I would love to be a fly on the wall when Bannon gives testimony to Congress. I assume he will be under oath. The Congress wants facts, names and places that can be cooperated with facts. They should have little need of his opinion on how he feels about Ivanka or anyone else. I will also speculate that if anyone knows anything about what went on in the Trump campaign it just may be Bannon. Will it be detrimental to Trump? We will have to once again play the waiting game.
