Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has just stepped down as executive chairman of Breitbart News, the super right wing “news” outlet announced today.
Bannon’s resignation comes after President Trump publicly attacked him for giving highly critical comments to Michael Wolff for his book Fire and Fury. Bannon called members of the Trump family and campaign “treasonous.”
“I’m proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time in building out a world-class news platform,” Bannon said in a statement.
This is the same guy who the alt-right claimed was a political mastermind, who was fired, got a Democrat elected in Alabama, and then got fired again.
Bannon was one of the most seen faces and closes confidants of candidate Trump and president Trump. He recently left the White House to be executive chairman of Breitbart News, making his departure from the “news” outlet confirmation of his now dead career.
Its remarkable that the highest profile figures from the Trump administration and campaign have made it this long, but they keep dropping like flies. It is great to see such a terrible person’s career officially come crashing down.
