Steve Bannon is taking a page out of Mike Lindell’s playbook and backing the narrative that Donald Trump will be reinstated before the next election. Bannon said on his Real America’s Voice program “The War Room,” “the return of Trump ain’t going to be in 2024, it’s going to be in 2022 or maybe even before as we start the decertification process out in Arizona.” This prediction is a dumb one for a few reasons: Biden has already been president for nine months, several states would need to be overturned to make Trump the victor, and there is no constitutional process in place for bringing back an ex-president or defeated candidate. But also, the Republican-led “audit” in Arizona did not show the widespread voter fraud they were promising and in fact only served to add slightly to Joe Biden’s margin of victory. Bannon is smart enough to know that what he’s saying doesn’t make sense and so the best case scenario is that he’s trying to trick his audience to give them a glimmer of hope so that they keep watching his program. The worst case scenario is that he is trying to rile them up to take action into their own hands and inspire another coup attempt like what happened on January 6th.
