Fox News Is Not Interested In Hiring Steve Bannon

Fox News Is Not Interested In Hiring Steve Bannon

Steve Bannon, the fiery former chief strategist of Donald Trump's chaotic White House is out as executive chairman of Breitbart News, the media company said Tuesday.

"Andrew didn't give a s-t about politics", said Ben Shapiro, a former Breitbart News editor who runs the conservative news site Daily Wire.

Bannon was quoted in a new book about the Trump White House as calling Donald Trump Jr.

"I feel a sense of relief for the President that he can now put this distraction beside him", Scaramucci said Tuesday of the controversy created by Bannon's comments, noting Trump now "doesn't have to deal with it anymore".

Bannon's ouster follows the publication of an inflammatory new book on the Trump White House with scathing comments attributed to Bannon.

Bannon issued an apology, but it was rejected by the White House shortly after.

He went on to call Donald Jnr "both a patriot and a good man" and said that his remarks were aimed not at him but at then-campaign chair Paul Manafort, who was reportedly present with Donald Jnr and Kushner in the meeting.

A Canadian university professor's book is back on the best-seller list after a decade, thanks to tell-all Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

Bannon maintained his visibility by rejoining Breitbart in August and directing it to serve his political ends as the insurgent voice of the "anti-establishment" wing of the Republican Party, a faction that many critics saw as a socially intolerant and racist fringe of white nationalism.

I haven't seen the movie. "I haven't watched anything". "I spanked her once with a hairbrush at a competition", Golden said. In one instance depicted in the film, Golden throws a steak knife at her daughter, which lodges in Harding's arm.

Fox has not responded to Observer's request for further comment.

Bannon is quoted in the book severely criticising the president and described one meeting between Trump's team and a Russian lawyer as "treacherous".

But the strategist was never able to recover from a Trump statement that blasted him as having "lost his mind". The author of the book, Michael Wolff, disputed Bannon's account.

"These are from people who just have not accepted the fact that President Trump is the United States president and I'm sorry for them in that", Pompeo, who gives Trump his regular intelligence briefings, said on "Fox News Sunday".

It's unclear what will happen next to Bannon, who joined Breitbart in 2012.

The influential Mercer billionaire family, major backers of Breitbart and Bannon cut off all contact with Bannon after release of passages of the book.

To no one's surprise, President Trump did not take kindly to the betrayal.

Mercer is part owner of Breitbart News and has close ties to the Trump administration.

Nevertheless, Breitbart soared under Bannon, reaching 37 million unique readers a month before Trump upset Hillary Clinton to win the 2016 election.
