During an appearance on Steve Bannon‘s show Wednesday, former Fox News host Lou Dobbs slammed Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders for not mentioning Donald Trump’s name during her response to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union speech.
“To not mention his name, to talk about ‘new leadership'” was a clear message that she was aligning herself with Ron DeSantis, according to Dobbs.
Bannon agreed, saying “it was an insult to President Trump” and that Sanders “would not exist politically if it weren’t for President Trump.”
“If you’re going to give a counter speech, you’ve got to talk about important issues,” Bannon said. “Don’t get me wrong, the wokeism is very important. But it’s not quite the heart of the matter right now, right? It’s not the heart of the matter. She is not — the reason is she’s just not — she’s not intellectually capable of going to the heart of the matter, let’s be blunt.”
