The internet is busy throwing piles of dirt on Steve Bannon’s career after he killed it by begging Trump for forgiveness during an interview with Axios.
Facing a fierce backlash from President Trump and his supporters, Bannon on Sunday issued a statement to Axios attempting to take back all of the comments he made about Trump and his family and issuing a groveling apology to the president on Sunday morning — although he left some accusations hanging.
Bannon’s remarks came hours after his former protege Stephen Miller blasted him in a heated segment with CNN host Jake Tapper.
Social media users were quick to pile on Bannon, with longtime conservative commentator Bill Kristol writing, “I’m old enough to remember when Steve Bannon—whatever else one thought of him—didn’t seem to be an obsequious toady.”
Here are some other comments:
You can't unring a bell, Bannon. You said what you meant.

Steve needs to realize he threw himself under the bus. He has lost all credibility. Who would hire him now? Trust is a badge of honor. Trump is the leader of the ship an Bannon tried to sink the ship. Good riddance.

Amazing how Breitbart still has nothing up on its website about the Bannon apology.

Basically Bannon is showing he's as spineless as the people he criticizes.

And here we thought Bannon was a tough guy, not a sniveling toadie.
