Hey, Y’all Steve Bannon Made A Movie Trailer!

Axios has an exclusive on Messy Steve’s new film, Trump@War. Of course EVERYTHING is a war to Steve Bannon, and this short film is no exception.

(Film at the link, and fair warning: Leni Riefenstahl it is NOT. )

Why it matters: The film is part of a drive by Bannon to galvanize Republicans to embrace the midterms as Trump’s “first re-elect.”

The film is designed to portray Trump supporters as being under siege — complete with clips of CNN’s Don Lemon, and footage of a “Make America Great Again” hat being burned.

Bannon shared the trailer as he announced a new political group aimed at turning out Republicans this fall, Citizens of the American Republic (COAR).

Now, it is anyone’s guess if this will 1) be effective and B) get Bannon back into Comrade Trump’s good graces, but that is the real goal. It’s not a great trailer (it has all the marks of being made with iMovie’s Trailer, including the cheesey demonic, The Omen-like soundtrack), but it does paint the Deplorables as being the underdogs in an eternal war, and they eat that shit up with a spoon.

Bannon, describing the film, told me: “How jacked do we think Trump will be when he sees this?”

See what I mean, that’s the goal!

Bannon added: “If you’re a deplorable, you’ll literally standing on your chair with your pitchfork saying: ‘I’ve got to get people out to vote.'”

Bannon said the film — from his longtime production company, Victory Films — will last about 75 minutes, and will include interviews with former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski; Dr. Seb Gorka, an alumnus of Trump’s White House; and about 18 others.

Bannon, at the moment, does not have any of the usual suspects funding him, and so this thing may go nowhere beyond this trailer, OR he might find some new, undiscovered rube(s) to contribute.

It seems like he is trying to re-establish himself, and who knows? It might work.

    The Red Scare always do as they’re told. The Blue Wave requires motivation. Donnie Dorko is an excellent motivational speaker (Twitterer?).

    The film stinks as much as Bannon does, but it’s more than B.O. and bourbon.

    How about a montage of soybean farmers plowing under every third row that had been slated for China, a grocery ad touting: Last chance on Tariff Bacon, 5 cents a pound, Imported nails at seventy-five cents per three-inch nail, or an SUX 2000 SUV for only $79,990.00*
