Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon unloaded on the Bush presidents in an interview with Vanity Fair's Gabriel Sherman, calling George H.W. Bush "a pervert."

"The Bush presidency is the most destructive presidency in history. James Buchanan included. It's not even close ... And by the way, I haven't even gotten to 9/11. I mean, 9/11! Think about if 9/11 had happened on Trump's watch. We would have gotten 100 percent of the blame by the Bush guys. And they said, 'Well, we just got here.' What do you mean you just got here? That's what gets me about them coming after Trump. I really detest them. I mean, the old man is a pervert. He's a pervert. Grabbing these girls and grabbing their asses?"
