On Wednesday, Far-right podcaster Steve Bannon invited GOP strategist Athan Koutsiouroumbas to talk about the 2022 midterms, but the conversation went awry when Koutsiouroumbas declared that there had been no fraud in Pennsylvania, prompting Bannon to scramble to calm his audience.
“Ultimately, things didn’t go the right way in Pennsylvania,” Koutsiouroumbas told Bannon. “And the reason was because Republicans didn’t vote.”
“There is no evidence of any fraud that I’ve seen in Delaware County,” he continued.
The conservative strategist explained that election fraudsters would need thousands of legitimate licenses or social security numbers to steal the election.
“They’re just not going to be able to pull it off,” the guest insisted. “It’s baked-in voter ID that Republicans have been begging for in Pennsylvania for years. And voter ID is a 80-20 issue in Pennsylvania. We have it today with mail-in ballots, and Republicans need to start using it.”
After a short commercial break, Bannon noted that his audience had expressed outrage at Koutsiouroumbas for claiming there was no election fraud.
“I understand the audience,” Bannon said. “I’ve got it. People’s heads are blowing up. Take a deep breath. It’s the first step of a journey.”
Meanwhile, audience members flocked to the War Room’s chat to slam the host.
“This guy with Bannon is a phony,” one person complained.
“There’s fraud somewhere!” another said.
“WTF! It’s Wednesday PsyOp day,” one viewer wrote.
