Infighting & enemies: 5 things Scaramucci revealed to Stephen Colbert

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci made his

President Trump is believed to have been considering ousting Mr Bannon, who branded Breitbart a "platform for the alt-right" during his there tenure a year ago, for months and has sent him into a form of internal exile within the White House.

Perhaps this would be more understandable if the president were more reserved.

In April, Trump diminished Bannon's role to that of "a guy who works for me". The departure of his inter-office ally, Reince Priebus, has made him lonelier still.

Steve Bannon and Rupert Murdoch don't care much for one another. Then, taking pains to insist "as I said on Saturday", Trump denounced the hate groups and called for unity. Trump lashed out at the CEOs and the media for noting what most in his own party had stated publicly-that it took him too long to speak out against the KKK, neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups who violently protested in Charlottesville last weekend.

In fact, if his August 14 appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert is any indication, he's still very much in Donald Trump's corner, coming up with plenty of excuses to justify his behavior. The president's comments on Tuesday asserting that Bannon joined the campaign after he had already found electoral success seems to reflect this sentiment.

Bannon has been in a precarious position before but Trump has opted to keep him, in part because his chief strategist played a major role in his election victory and is backed by numerous president's most loyal rank-and-file supporters.

"Now, listen, after he hit me so hard for three weeks he thought I was going to stab him with that", Scaramucci said.

He played in just half of the games of the season, racking up just 28 receptions for 430 yards and two touchdowns scored. WR comparison for the last three years between Matthews and Watkins, both part of the class of 2014.

"Most people in this audience.have experienced some level of discrimination", he continued, "and so i find it disgusting and reprehensible, and I will renounce it every living day of my life".

Americans deserve to know that white nationalists, white supremacists, and neo-Nazis are not in a position to influence US policy. "Who's leaking now. Is it Steve Bannon?"

"Well, I've said that", Scaramucci said.

He's really leaning in to this whole disgraced White House thing!

"The president obviously is very nervous and afraid of firing him", a source close to the White House told Reuters.

"You also got this sort of Bannon-bart influence in there, which I think is a snag on the president", Scaramucci said, referencing Bannon's former position as the head of the alt-right website Breitbart News. "What I don't like, though, is the toleration of it".
