The Blaze TV host Dana Loesch spoke with TheBlaze's Managing Editor Leon Wolf about the alt-right group and their place within the conservative movement, namely, how White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon came to be a top advisor to President Donald Trump.

Wolf, a prominent figure in the grassroots conservative movement, theorized that perhaps Trump settled on Bannon simply because there may have been no better options available. "I remember when his campaign started, no one was going to go work for Donald Trump," Wolf said. "Everybody was flat out told, people who go work for Trump, you'd better hope he wins, because if he doesn't you're never working in this town again."

"It could very well be that these people that we saw like Lewandowski, and Manafort, and all those other people had nowhere else to turn. And Trump had no where else to turn but to them, because he had nobody else to even tell him how to even theoretically sound like a Republican on the campaign trail," Wolf added.

Loesch and Wolf continued their conversation about the alt-right movement and whether it should have a spot at the table this week at the 2017 Conservative Political Action Conference.

CPAC will take place outside Washington, D.C. Wednesday thru Saturday, and TheBlaze's own Dana Loesch will be speaking at CPAC Thursday morning. The conference is aimed at gathering grassroots conservatives together in order to unite through knowledge and activism.
