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

By Brian Skellenger

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", well, for someone who had a history of working in media, it's kind of crazy to believe that he didn't know whether or not an interview he was currently was "off the record". Nice try, Bannon.

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