Steve Bannon out as executive chairman at Breitbart News after Trump rebuke

Hansen, who describes himself as a "devout critic" of Trump and the president's former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, acknowledges that some would be amused "that someone like me was benefiting from something published with Bannon's help about Trump".

"Fox News will not be hiring Steve Bannon", a Fox News Channel spokesperson said in a statement first reported by The Wrap on Tuesday, and sent to TPM Wednesday.

The departure had been widely rumored and anticipated since Bannon was quoted in author Michael Wolff 's new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, which was critical of President Trump.

"I feel a sense of relief for the President that he can now put this distraction beside him", Scaramucci said Tuesday of the controversy created by Bannon's comments, noting Trump now "doesn't have to deal with it anymore".

Bannon is the first high-profile casual of Michael Wolff's tell-all book, Fire and Fury, about the odd actions and turns of Trump's casualty.

But he appears to have become increasingly isolated amid reports that he had lost the support of a major financial backer.

Once a trusted adviser to the president, Bannon enraged Trump after he was prominently quoted in "Fire and Fury" making disparaging remarks about Trump's children.

On Monday, deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said Bannon's apology did not alter his standing with the president.

One of the chief architects of the nativist Make America Great Again rebellion has gone from one of the top jobs in the White House to being too toxic even for their house publication Breitbart.

When he was pushed out of the White House last August, Bannon declared, "The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over".

Mr Bannon had returned to Breitbart after being dismissed by the White House, using the site as a platform from which to promote a slate of hard-right candidates to challenge mainstream Republicans in November's midterm elections. About the now-infamous meeting with a Russian lawyer Donald Trump, Jr. set up on behalf of his father, Bannon apparently told Wolff, "The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor - with no lawyers". When he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind, " the president said.

Bannon has served as executive chair of Breitbart News LLC, the parent company of Breitbart News, since founder Andrew Breitbart's death in March 2012.

Mr Trump has recently taken to referring to Mr Bannon as "Sloppy Steve", a derogatory reference to his former aide's famously dishevelled appearance. Trump's administration doesn't need their Fearless Leader's bumbling interference, they would get a lot more accomplished if the stable genius spent all of his day in his bed, tweeting and snacking on cheese balls.
