Documents from divorce proceedings reveal that Trump campaign CEO and former Breitbart News chairman Stephen Bannon’s ex-wife had accused him of domestic abuse and said the conservative filmmaker harbored anti-Semitic views.
“He said that he doesn’t like Jews,” Bannon’s second wife, Mary Louise Piccard said in court filings.
Piccard added that “he didn’t want the girls to go to school with Jews,” and that “he doesn’t like the way they [Jews] raise their kids to be ‘whiney brats’”.
“The biggest problem he had with Archer is the number of Jews that attend,” Piccard said in a 2007 signed statement.
“I told him that there are children who are Jewish at [other schools] and he asked me what the percentage was. I told him that I didn’t know because it wasn’t an issue for me as I am not raising the girls to be either anti-Semitic or prejudiced against anyone.”
Bannon’s second ex-wife also claimed that he had exploded at her during an episode in 1996, when he allegedly grabbed her “by the throat” and smashed a phone she was attempting to use.
Piccard notified local police, but never showed up in court, and the charges against Bannon were dismissed.
