Bannon’s revenge: Breitbart reportedly ramping up for ‘thermonuclear war against’ against Trump

Published

on

Now that former White House political strategist Steve Bannon is out of a job, many reports are claiming that he is planning a return to Breitbart News, the nationalist website he used in 2016 to promote Donald Trump’s campaign for president.

However, it looks like Bannon won’t be giving Trump the same cushy treatment that he received during last year’s campaign against Hillary Clinton.

One of Bannon’s friends tells reporter Gabriel Sherman that Breitbart is “ramping up for war against Trump” in the wake of Bannon’s ouster.

“It’s now a Democrat White House,” the friend tells Sherman, likely a reference to Bannon’s belief that First Daughter Ivanka Trump, along with key advisers such as Jared Kushner and Gary Cohn, are New York liberals who are disconnected from the nationalist message that Trump used to win the 2016 election.

Similarly, a source close to Breitbart News tells Axios’ Jonathan Swan that the news website plans to “go ‘thermonuclear’ against ‘globalists’ that Bannon and his friends believe are ruining the Trump administration, and by extension, America.”

As if to confirm the reports, Breitbart editor Joel Pollak simply tweeted “#WAR” in response to news of Bannon’s ouster.

If Breitbart were to really launch a war against Trump, it would leave the White House with few reliable media allies apart from top Fox News personalities.

Later Friday, Bannon went on the record, saying that the claim for “war” meant that he’s going to war against those in Congress, the media and the corporate sector who have opposed Trump.

Reflecting on the impassioned case laid out by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) over the past three days, Tomasky wondered what it would take to get through to Republicans who seem uninterested in fulfilling their constitutional duties.

An audio recording that has been reviewed by ABC News purportedly catches President Donald Trump demanding the firing of former American ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

According to ABC News, the recording was made in April 2018, which was more than a year before Yovanovitch was finally ousted from her position. Additionally, ABC News reports that the recording was made by Igor Fruman, the now-indicted henchman of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who captured the president's voice during a private dinner where he also met with Fruman's co-conspirator, Lev Parnas.
