Bannon advised Trump not to criticize neo-Nazis too harshly

Bannon advised Trump not to criticize neo-Nazis too harshly

But despite a slimmer portfolio, his proximity to the president means Bannon still plays a role in trying to influence policy, including most recently the internal White House debate over Afghanistan. I would not be surprised if the outcome of Trump firing Bannon and trying to pivot away from the most despicable of his policies would be for Steve to return to Breitbart and go scorched Earth on the president, and Trump knows it. But Mr. Bannon came on very late. At a recent dinner, the New York Times reported Monday, Murdoch told Trump that Bannon had to go. He also plans to ask "Mooch" how loyal he thinks President Trump is at the moment, following the incident that happened barely ten days into the position as the director of communications.

Not one to shy away from controversy, Colbert brought up The Mooch's now infamous recorded phone conversation in which the former communications director brought up the possibility of Steve Bannon fellating himself.

"Eddie Murphy said if he could do that he'd never leave the house", Scaramucci replied. After initially condemning violence, hatred and bigotry "on many sides" of the protest, Trump finally denounced racism and white supremacism in a speech on Monday.

"I don't think that people who like Trump are suddenly going to say, 'We're going to fight Trump.' Instead they'll say, 'What's the point of supporting him?'" Cernovich told Reuters.

The reporter then follows up with a question about The Mooch's "liberal views on social media", which Scaramucci uses as a hard pivot to vocalize what he describes as a long history of support for gay rights.

Hazard businessman remembers friend country singer Glen Campbell
Let people listen to that one for a long, long, long time because he sang like an angel. His career goes well beyond country music, though, with film, television and pop music.

Mr Bannon, who adamantly rejects claims that he is a racist or a sympathiser of white supremacists, is in trouble with Mr John Kelly, a retired Marine general and the new White House chief of staff. "Who's leaking now. Is it Steve Bannon?"

That "small but energetic part of his base" includes the KKK, who held a victory parade in North Carolina after Trump was elected, and former KKK grand wizard David Duke who said the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville "fulfills the promises of Donald Trump".

'If it was up to me, he would be gone, ' continued Scaramucci.

'What I don't like is the toleration of it, for me it's something that should not be tolerated'.

"When you take a job like that you know your expiration date is coming". "I didn't think I was going to last too long but I thought I was going to last longer than a carton of milk".
