Conservative talk radio host Glenn Beck has described Steve Bannon, Donald Trump's new campaign CEO, as "a horrible, despicable human being."
He elaborated on that Wednesday on MSNBC's "The Last Word," telling host Lawrence O'Donnell that Bannon, head of Brietbart News, describes himself as a Leninist.
"He is not a Marxist," Beck said. "He doesn't believe in Marxism or socialism or communism or anything else. What he means by that, and he has explained it, is that he is a destroyer of everything. He believes that Lenin was right the way he went in, destroyed the system, destroyed the Duma, brought down the parties, and then punished his enemies."
Beck told O'Donnell he was appearing on his show because "I am gravely concerned about the direction of the country, and it is very important for conservatives or constitutionalists to stand up and let the left know, 'Hey guys, we're not all like that.'"
Both sides have to come together on areas of agreement to avoid going into "chaos theory," Beck said.
'This is why Alexander Dugin loves this guy," Beck said. "He runs the chaos party over in Russia. He's a dangerous man, dangerous."
