Breitbart editor fires back at Trump over Bannon attack: ‘Outrageous’
A Breitbart editor blasted a tweet from President Trump attacking his former chief strategist and current Breitbart chairman Stephen Bannon, calling the post “outrageous.”
“This is outrageous even by POTUS standards,” Breitbart London editor-in-chief Raheem Kassam tweeted late Friday, responding to a tweet from Trump that went after “Sloppy Steve Bannon.”
In a tweet blasting a new tell-all book, Trump claimed that Bannon “cried when he got fired and begged for his job. Now Sloppy Steve has been dumped like a dog by almost everyone. Too bad!”

Trump has panned Bannon after his former adviser voiced various criticisms of the Trump administration in author Michael Wolff’s new book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”
While Trump has targeted his former chief strategist, Bannon has voiced support for Trump after the release of his comments in the book.
“The president is a great man,” Bannon said on Wednesday on “Breitbart News Tonight,” broadcast on Sirius XM.
“When Donald Trump is himself on the stump, he has the best political instincts of anyone in the past couple of decades, at least, to build that base and get all those people voting and to the rallies … we’re not on different sides here.”
