Speaking to a group of Trump supporters, former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon engaged in a disturbing exchange with a woman while taking questions from the audience.

“I am so upset,” she began, visibly showing disgust. “We have got so much trash that is supposedly representing us in Washington.”

Bannon interjected: “Seriously, if you want to take it back, it’s citizen involvement. You can take the trash out.”

The woman continued: “Never in my life did I think I would like to see a dictator, but if there’s going to be one, I want it to be Trump.”

The woman’s comment provoked a standing ovation from many in the audience, as well as applause from Bannon, who stood grinning on the stage.
