White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Thursday that Breitbart News should consider firing boss Steve Bannon over his disparaging remarks about President Donald Trump and his family.

When asked by a reporter whether it would be a good idea for Breitbart to drop Bannon, Sanders replied that "I certainly thing it's something they should look at and consider."

Although there were signs on Thursday that Trump may have softened his stance on Bannon -- Trump seemed happy that Bannon had called him a "great man" on Wednesday evening, for example -- Sanders' comment suggests that all is not forgiven in the Trump White House.

Bannon enraged Trump when he was quoted in an upcoming book on the Trump White House as saying he believed Donald Trump Jr.'s infamous 2016 meeting in Trump Tower with Russian officials was "unpatriotic" and "treasonous."
