Steve Bannon Makes Controversial Statements In Interview He Thought Was 'Off The Record'

Donald Trump announced on Friday his decision to fire his White House chief strategist, Steve Bannon, just days after Bannon made headlines for a remarkably candid phone interview in which he shot down President Trump's "fire and fury" approach to North Korea, mused about his enemies in the administration "wetting themselves," and even called the alt-right "losers" and "clowns." 

All while supposedly thinking the conversation was "off the record."

The interview, with liberal magazine American Prospect's Robert Kuttner, left Twitter shook.

But not everyone was buying it.

And while some declared it all part of a larger strategy by Bannon...

Considering Bannon's ultimate fate, this tweet seems to sum up the situation well:
