Steve Bannon not only “lost his job” and “lost his mind” according to President Trump, he now is losing his audience.
Readers at Breitbart News, Bannon’s own news site, made it clear they were backing the president as they turned on the former White House Chief Strategist for betraying Trump with vicious comments in an upcoming book.
Bannon left a fiery trail with eye-popping quotes such as calling actions by the Trump campaign “treasonous” and “unpatriotic” and declaring, “They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV.”
The president scorched his former staffer, stating he “has nothing to do with me or my presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind.”
Donald Trump Jr. fired back with his own response to Bannon, an “opportunist” who “squandered that privilege” of working in the White House.
It appears Bannon’s former supporters and readers of Breitbart agreed with the Trumps’ reactions, unloading on Twitter and the comments section at the conservative website’s Facebook page. And while Breitbart did report on the president’s statement, Trump Jr. noticed the chasm between the Bretibart readers and its CEO.
Wow, Just looked at the comments section on Breitbart. Wow. When Bannon has lost Breitbart, he’s left with . . . umm, nothing.

“Not sure what Bannon is trying to accomplish here but it only helps the democrats so what’s the point?” one comment on Facebook said.
The backlash continued to unfold on Twitter as well.
I just canceled my Breitbart subscription. Steve Bannon is a snake!

If Breitbart turns on Trump, that will be the END of your organization, and you’ll all be out of a job within a year. Tread carefully.

Bye bye bye Breitbart

It isn’t lit.
Bannon looks foolish.
Regardless of what you think of Trump, he represents MAGA ideals more than the Dems. Attacking him is just dumb. If he successfully attacks Trump, Bannon loses base support. If he fails, Trump shreds him. He has no allies. He loses either way.
