Steve Bannon, a former aide to the White House, criticized House Speaker Mike Johnson’s (R-La.) assertion that the election of Joe Biden was “God’s will,” contending that the nation requires a “house speaker” not a “theologian.”

Wednesday, Bannon featured a segment of Johnson’s remarks in an episode of his podcast “The War Room.”

When asked on Wednesday whether he considers the Biden presidency to be “God’s will,” Johnson went on to explain his statement by saying he was a ‘bible believing Christian.’

“The Bible says that God is the one that raises up people and authority. I believe God is sovereign — by the way, so did the founders. They acknowledge that our rights don’t come from government, they come from God, and we’re made in His image, everybody’s made the same. We all are given equal rights and value and that’s something that we defend. So if you believe all those things, then you believe that God is the one that allows people to be raised in authority. It must’ve been God’s will then, that’s my belief.” Johnson said.

“Yo, dude, he’s an illegitimate president. Have you lost your freaking mind? This election was stolen.” Bannon said as the clip of Johnson played.

In recent years, Bannon, who left the Trump White House in August 2017 following recurring disputes with other advisers and the former president, has defended the president.

This includes bolstering the assertions of former President Trump regarding the theft of the 2020 election.

Formerly, Johnson led an amicus brief in support of a lawsuit in Texas that challenged the accuracy of the 2020 election results. He has consistently expressed his support for former President Trump throughout his career.
