Bannon steps down from Breitbart amid White House pushback

Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, and started backing far-right candidates, some with questionable backgrounds and losing track records at the polls.

Bannon continued to express support for President Trump even after he left his White House post in August.

He also no doubt reminded Mr Trump that he'd chronicled Mr Murdoch, whose approval Mr Trump craves.

"Here, arguably, was the central issue of the Trump presidency, informing every aspect of Trumpian policy and leadership: He didn't process information in any conventional sense".

"The first couple of days of sales figures aren't giving us the full picture", said Kristen McLean, the NPD Group's book industry analyst.

If what's written in "Fire and Fury" is accurately transcribed, what motivated those Wolff allegedly interviewed to undermine, even betray, the president? Bannon called the actions of some Trump family members "unpatriotic" and "treasonous".

Steve Bannon is without a giant microphone. The president's attorney's sent a cease and desist letter to Bannon and a public rift was created when the president released harsh comments criticizing his chief strategist.

Reagan, a Republican who was the U.S. president from 1981-1989, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 1994 and died in 2004.

Bannon has been abandoned by financial patrons, condemned by erstwhile political allies and ridiculed by Trump himself over his comments, which he has not denied making but has since tried to walk back.

Bannon attempted to walk back his comments in a pseudo-apology, claiming his remarks were meant instead for campaign insiders such as then-manager Paul Manafort.

According to The Times, influential conservative political donor Rebekah Mercer, who has a minority stake in Breitbart, led the effort to push out Bannon.

It's easy to find examples of Wolff saying things that would please Trump and his team - a theme being that other journalists are unfair. Some commentators have pointed out that Wolff has a history of sensationalizing and they note the sourcing for the book is often vague.

"We engage in complex conversation about some of the most weighty matters facing the world", Pompeo said, adding: "He asks really hard questions".

In response to what is little more than a traditional right-wing agenda, there has been a marked erosion of loyalty to Trump among voters who thought they were casting ballots for a populist, and are getting ideological and plutocratic policies instead. The company announced it is ending its relationship with Bannon, stating its programing agreement is with Breitbart. And Trump's break with Steve Bannon, the nemesis of the Capitol Hill crowd, will only bring the president and the elected conservative establishment closer. He is no longer the executive chairman of Breitbart News. And then, along comes Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff.

And if it worked once, why not try it again?

But a 1980 Newsweek essay by Isaac Asimov is distressingly prescient at a time when human habitats are simultaneously drying up and flooding while an egomaniacal fool fingers a button that could blast a hole in our planet.
