Eric Metaxas Plans to Interview Steve Bannon – Yawn?

What’s going on? The New Yorker planned to interview former Donald Trump strategist, alt-right leader, and nativist Steve Bannon at one of their events and social media erupted with protest and cancellations of subscriptions. Within hours, the magazine canceled Bannon’s talk and said sorry.

In reaction on a recent segment of his radio show, Trump cheerleader and evangelical author Eric Metaxas extended an interview invitation to Bannon and not much happened. On that same show, Metaxas hosted alt-right queen Ann Coulter. Mr. Metaxas has had Ms. Coulter on his show for friendly interviews before.

Metaxas considers Brit alt-right poster girl Katie Hopkins his “hero.” Milo Yiannopolis has been his friendly guest as well.

These are not interviews which challenge the guests on their alt-rightness.

Obviously, it is his show, he can do what he wants. I am just surprised that there is no backlash or consequence for going full alt-right. Mainstream Christians will continue going on the show as if nothing else is going on in the culture.

Nothing to see here.

Source: Steve Bannon Was Fired This Morning

A source in a position to know just indicated that Steve Bannon has been fired. He was fired by Chief of Staff John Kelly. Apparently President Trump was not present when the decision was relayed.
Although his departure had been rumored with many calling for his job, apparently Bannon has been let go.
Developing…
He is now saying he resigned two weeks ago.


That tweet is contrary to what I have heard. Chief of Staff Kelly fired him this morning.
Bannon gave an interview to the Weekly Standard where he lamented that the issues Trump was known for are over.
