Steve Bannon Was a 'Bad Hire' by Trump, Says Anthony Scaramucci

Steve Bannon has stepped down as executive chairman of Breitbart News, the right-wing news organisation said on its website on Tuesday.

Bannon joined Breitbart in 2012 and helped raise the profile of the news site, which he once called the platform for the so-called alt-right, a loose confederation of neo-Nazis, white supremacists and anti-Semites.

While Michael Wolff's book takes an explosive look at US President Donald Trump's time in office, Hansen's book details the Allied bombing campaign of civilians during WWII.

Bannon's departure - just days after his public criticisms of former White House colleagues led to a spectacular falling-out with President Trump and his allies - was a humbling denouement for a figure who had reached the uppermost levels of power only a year ago. Bannon's time in the White House also ended last August after Kelly was appointed.

Surely he must know that the publication of Wolff's book, Fire and Fury, would spark an all-out war, and possibly provoke the president into questioning his sanity and giving him a nickname like "Sloppy Steve".

He left his White House position reportedly to pursue the Trump agenda outside the confines of the White House, and immediately returned to Breitbart News. He issued a statement Sunday praising the president's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., whom he was quoted accusing of treasonous behavior in the book.

Keane was tipped as O'Neill's potential successor in the national gig but could now be with him at the Potteries. O'Neill met the Stoke hierarchy last night about taking over at a club sitting 18th in the Premier League .

Bannon is chairman of Breitbart News, and his comments caused a key Bannon backer, Rebekah Mercer, the billionaire GOP donor and Breitbart co-owner, to distance her family from him.

Trump replied to Bannon's comments with a statement savaging his former confidant.

Miller also criticized Bannon, who is quoted extensively in the book, saying it was "tragic and unfortunate" that Bannon "would make these grotesque comments so out of touch with reality and obviously so vindictive".

Bannon and Breitbart will work together on a smooth transition, a statement from the company's chief executive, Larry Solov, said.

"'We were running a kind of happy cult when Andrew was in charge, and when Andrew died everyone had an incentive to spin what they thought he was up to", said one former employee. Trump's administration doesn't need their Fearless Leader's bumbling interference, they would get a lot more accomplished if the stable genius spent all of his day in his bed, tweeting and snacking on cheese balls.
