Stephe K. Bannon, former White House strategist, has finally broken his silence after leaving the oval and we are certain some people wished he would have stayed quiet.
In his 60 Minute interview with CBS’ Charlie Rose, Bannon challenged his form colleagues telling them they should have resigned if they didn’t agree with President Trump’s response to Charlottesville.
“If you’re going to break with him resign. The stuff that was leaked out that week by certain members of the White House, I thought that was unacceptable,” Bannon told Charlie Rose.
His comment was made with a specific person in mind.
Via Breitbart: Gary Cohn complained about Trump’s response on-the-record and associates revealed to the New York Times that he had even drafted a resignation letter. His son-in-law Jared Kushner and his daughter Ivanka Trump urged him to “take a more moderate stance” according to the New York Times.
During his interview, Bannon named names.
“I’m obviously talking about Gary Cohn and some other people,” he said. “If you don’t like what he’s doing and you don’t agree with it, you have an obligation to resign.”
When Rose asked Bannon if Cohn should have resigned, Bannon replied, “Absolutely.”

Bannon said Trump was supporting the “normal course of the First Amendment” and not white supremacists adding that there was “no room in American society” for neo-Nazis and neo-confederates and the KKK in American society.
The Breitbart boss-man has said he is a “street fighter” for Trump. Bannon has no plans of abandoning his loyalty to the president, and will continue his support outside the White House.
“By the way, I think that’s why President Trump and I get along. Donald Trump’s a fighter, great counterpuncher. He’s a fighter. I’m going to be his wingman outside for the entire time,” Bannon said.
He added that Trump’s enemies needed to know that there would never be “a free shot on goal.”
