Sarah Sanders: Breitbart ‘Should Consider’ Parting Ways With Steve Bannon

Following the release of bombshell excerpts from Michael Wolff’s upcoming tell-all book about Trump World, the White House and President Donald Trump have directed much of their ire towards Breitbart chief — and former White House chief strategist — Steve Bannon, who is seen as the main source of the most controversial comments and revelations.

At today’s White House press briefing, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked if she believed that Breitbart should push out Bannon over his comments about Trump. And she responded that the far-right outlet should think about it.

With a reporter highlighting that Sanders was “eager to call” on ESPN to fire Jemele Hill after she labeled Trump a white supremacist, the press secretary was asked if Breitbart should “part ways with Steve Bannon.”

“I certainly think that it’s something they should look at and consider,” she stated hesitantly, before swiftly moving on to another question.

In the wake of the publication of the excerpts, Trump’s attorney has issued cease-and-desist letters to not only Bannon but also Wolff and his publisher, calling on the book’s release to be halted.
