Steve Bannon “built a fucking machine” at Breitbart.
Remember when the disgraced former White House chief strategist said that after he was summarily dismissed from 1600 Penn.? No? That’s ok, because we’re happy to jog your memory. here’s the quote:
I feel jacked up. Now I’m free. I’ve got my hands back on my weapons. Someone said, ‘it’s Bannon the Barbarian.’ I am definitely going to crush the opposition. There’s no doubt. I built a f***ing machine at Breitbart. And now I’m about to go back, knowing what I know, and we’re about to rev that machine up. And rev it up we will do.
Well now, in the wake a public falling out with the President following quotes attributed to Bannon in Michael Wolff’s bombshell new book, Steve is stepping down from the helm of his “fucking machine.” Here’s the New York Times:
Stephen K. Bannon is stepping down from his post as executive chairman of Breitbart News, the company announced Tuesday.
Mr. Bannon’s departure, which was forced by a onetime financial patron, Rebekah Mercer, comes as Mr. Bannon remained unable to quell the furor over remarks attributed to him in a new book in which he questions President Trump’s mental fitness and disparages his elder son, Donald Trump Jr.
Mr. Bannon and Breitbart will work together on a smooth transition, a statement from the company’s chief executive, Larry Solov, said.
In the statement, Mr. Bannon added 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.”
And there you go folks. The humiliation is complete.
Bannon has now “succeeded” in alienating himself from his own racist tabloid.
So congrats Steve!
Make sure and keep us up to speed on how your “revolution” is going now that you’ve been stripped of your benefactors, your Presidential mouthpiece and your media megaphone.
