Steve Bannon Leaves Breitbart News


Bannon, who was chair of the far-right media organization, said he was "proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time".

Bannon had served as Breitbart's executive chairman since 2012.

"Sometimes", he writes, "I have let the players offer their versions, in turn allowing the reader to judge them".

Bannon's public roasting isn't just fun. The president praised one aide who engaged in a bitter back-and-forth on CNN and insisted the president is not only sane, but brilliant. It advocated for strict limits on immigration, particularly from Latin America and from Muslim-majority nations, and for an "America first" agenda in trade negotiations.

The president was enraged again when passages from Wolff's book were released, saying that Bannon had "lost his mind".

The first key is his phony populism, with an emphasis on both words.

"In October", Sherman wrote, "Bannon called an adviser and said he would consider running for president if Trump doesn't run for re-election in 2020". Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said last August that Trump lacked "the stability" and "some of the competence" to be successful as president.

Some Trump allies voiced frustration that the White House does not appear to have implemented a full-scale crisis communications plan.

"There's no benefit for us to comment on the claims made in Wolff's book", a senior German official told VOA, speaking on the condition of anonymity.

However, unlike former Bush mastermind Karl Rove, and one-time Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, Fox News says it has no interest in signing Bannon. Five days later, Bannon was out.

Following the inauguration, trouble happened almost immediately when Trump began focusing on things that seemed unimportant, the size of inaugural crowds, and inaugural weather. "It's very smart on his part".

The Trump administration has been dealing with the fallout of the book since it hit the stores on Friday.

FOLKENFLIK: Well, Bannon has liked to describe himself as something of a revolutionary. There are no fractures. "Nothing counts but delivering a mortal wound, so everything is delivered as though it is a mortal wound".

Second, because Bannon's arrogance after last November was a mirror image of our despair.

The Mercer family, which backed Bannon's ambitions, backed Breitbart and which turned its loyalties from Ted Cruz in the primaries to Donald Trump as he gained momentum.

"President Donald Trump's work days reportedly begin as late as 11 a.m., end by 6 p.m., and often contain hours of executive time". I see these people put everything they have got into their jobs and into respecting and trusting the president.

As any journalist knows, it takes only a few inaccuracies or inconsistencies to discredit a story.

Is it possible to drop the mic on oneself?

This is a compilation of stories from across USA TODAY.

Bannon stumped for unsuccessful Senate candidate Roy Moore in Alabama despite the sexual misconduct allegations against Moore.

Bannon badly underestimated the depths of revulsion that followed Charlottesville. Now Sloppy Steve has been dumped like a dog by almost everyone.
