Steve Bannon says media 'always wrong' about Trump, president 'maniacally focused' on agenda

"[Everything] he's doing is laid out an agenda with the speeches on the promises he made and our job is get the paths of what he's executed, and he is maniacally focused on that,” Bannon added.

The setting of the conversation -- CPAC -- was a foreign one for Bannon. In past years, Breitbart sponsored discussions that ran counter to the event, called "The Uninvited." The chief strategist poked fun at his attendance at the main event Thursday.

"In regard to us two, I think the biggest misconception is everything that you're reading," said Priebus. "We share an office suite together, we're basically together from 6:30 in the morning until about 11:00 at night."
