It looks like Steve Bannon could be on his way out of Breitbart after his insults aimed at members of the First Family – namely Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner – were made public.
Reports indicate a “chaotic” atmosphere at the online news giant.
Many at the website are urging for Bannon to be released. They were joined by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Thursday morning.

Is the clock ticking on Breitbart chairman Steve Bannon?
Following the release of a number of excerpts from Michael Wolff’s upcoming tell-all on the Trump White House that featured explosive comments from the ex-White House chief strategist, it is now being reported that there is a current discussion at Breitbart News over Bannon’s future.
Per the Wall Street Journal, the far-right news outlet’s board is currently mulling the decision, along with longtime Bannon benefactors Robert and Rebekah Mercer.
Earlier today, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders stated that the conservative website should consider getting rid of Bannon in the wake of his controversial remarks about Trump and his family going public. Meanwhile, Rebekah Mercer offered up a rare public rebuke of Bannon this afternoon, confirming that she was no longer backing him financially.
Is Steve Bannon no longer relevant to conservatism if he joins the Russia-phobic, anti-Trump fanatics on the Left?
