Former White House strategist Stephen Bannon stepping down from Breitbart news

Share

Steve Bannon left the White House in August of previous year to a hero's return at Breitbart News, the far-right news site he helped turn into the leading voice of conservative politics in America.

In a statement, Bannon wrote that he was "proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time in building out a world-class news platform". Wolff's book, released on Friday, sent shockwaves through the Trump administration with fiery quotes about the Trump family and numerous claims about the president's intelligence and competence. "I am confident in everything that is in this book", he said. "To reiterate, those comments were not aimed at Don Jr".

And yet Gorka - in an effort to stand by his man - has confirmed that Wolff did indeed have access to the White House and that staffers were asked to speak with him for the book.

Just as the title suggests, the lineup of guests for Letterman's first Netflix show is looking to be very promising. Meanwhile, the beard - you know which one and on whom - remains long and snow-white.

Michael Wolff appeared Monday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" to discuss "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House".

Bannon left the White House last summer and returned to his position as executive chairman at Breitbart News, but reports indicated he had fallen out of favor with wealthy conservative backers as his comments in Wolff's book surfaced.

In addition, as if to rub salt in Trump's wounds, Bannon makes caustic remarks in the book about the president's ability to follow complex subjects.

Chris Hemsworth, Margot Robbie play 'Who's the best Australian' with Ellen DeGeneres
Ellen starts off the amusing quiz by saying, "Whoever gets the most right is the best Australian - besides my wife Portia ". Tensions ignited between Australia-bred actors Margot Robbie and Chris Hemsworth on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday.

Despite being packed with political dynamite, a new book on Donald Trump won't, on its own, dislodge a president who is totally unfit to hold such a vital office.

By contrast, Mr Bannon now seems to be striking a more conciliatory tone with the President, saying: "There was no collusion and the investigation is a witch hunt".
