In his first post-election interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Breitbart News' executive chairman Steve Bannon, who is set to become the chief strategist in the Donald Trump administration, sarcastically compared himself to Satan and said, "Darkness is good."
"Darkness is good. (Former Vice President) Dick Cheney. Darth Vader (a fictional character in the 'Star Wars' universe). Satan. That's power. It only helps us when they get it wrong. When they're blind to who we are and what we're doing," Bannon told THR in an interview at Trump Tower in New York.
Bannon praised Trump. "You have probably the greatest orator since William Jennings Bryan, coupled with an economic populist message and two political parties that are so owned by the donors that they don't speak to their audience," he said. "But he speaks in a non-political vernacular, he communicates with these people in a very visceral way. Nobody in the Democratic party listened to his speeches, so they had no idea he was delivering such a compelling and powerful economic message.
