In a recent segment on War Room, Steve Bannon harshly criticized former House Speaker Paul Ryan for his role on Fox News' Board of Directors and his political legacy. 

Bannon accused Ryan of failing to take significant stands during his political career, particularly highlighting his actions during critical moments in 2016 and 2018. He also accused the former Speaker of the House of lacking character, claiming that Ryan “cut and ran” in 2018 instead of pushing to pass GOP bills.

“Show me where the guy Paul Ryan had any character when it mattered,” Bannon asked. “When you’re in the middle of a fight and you don’t know how it's gonna turn out... that's character, in the defining moment."

“Every time there’s a crisis, he runs. And you’re going to have him sit there and lecture us?”

Bannon’s comments were in reference to a recent interview that Ryan participated in on Fox News. There, Ryan attacked former president Donald Trump’s character, stating “If you put yourself above the Constitution, as he has done, I think that makes you unfit for office.”

Ryan also accused Trump of costing the GOP election wins, stating, “He’s cost us a lot of seats. He cost us the Senate twice. He cost us the House because he is nominating, he is pushing through the primaries people who cannot win general elections but who pledge fealty to him.”

Following Ryan's remarks, Trump responded in a post on Truth Social.

“Nobody can ever trust Fox News, and I am one of them, with the weak and ineffective RINO, Paul Ryan, on its Board of Directors,” Trump wrote in his post. “He’s a total lightweight, a failed and pathetic Speaker of the House, and a very disloyal person.”

Trump went on to call on Fox News to remove Ryan from its Board of Directors.
