Steve Bannon may think he is the Sith lord, but the Freedom caucus looked at him and saw this:

There are pockets in this country where believing your own bullshit and being the legend in your own mind is rampant (DC obviously, with Silicon Valley a close second, but also Hollywood, Wall Street, upper levels of corporate America, the Catholic church, and upper levels of academic administrations), but when you come slinging a piece of shit and people see you for what you are, you get laughed out of the room.

“We’re going to lose so much, you’re going to be so sick and tired of lose losing, you’re going to come to me and go ‘Please, please, we can’t lose anymore.”
