Member of Trump's diversity council calls for Bannon's resignation

Though the president fired him as communications director in late July, just 11 days into his post, Scaramucci is still deeply devoted to Trump. The departure of his inter-office ally, Reince Priebus, has made him lonelier still.

Scaramucci was asked by his host if Steve Bannon was one of the "leakers" in the White House.

"Is Steve Bannon the leaker?" the late-night emcee asked before Scaramucci responded: "I said he was".

Most recently, the ousted White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, told The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza in an obscenity-laced rant that Bannon was trying to "build [his] own brand off of the f-king strength of the President".

The president doubled down on that dismissiveness at Tuesday's press conference, distancing Bannon from his unexpectedly successful presidential campaign.

"Who cares? We're supposed to feel bad for a guy because he gave up his billion-dollar lifestyle to be the most powerful man in the world?" Bannon, Gorka and Miller have been accused of associating with white nationalist individuals or groups or promoting their views. Bannon, an outspoken nationalist who formerly ran the right-wing media site Breitbart News, which he has called "a platform for the alt-right", has always been accused of promoting racist ideology. So, the host spun the incident into a long list of things the president has been more mad about than "neo-Nazis murdering people in the streets".

The actual blade, encased in a glass box, was explained by saying, "After he hit me so hard for three weeks, he thought I was going to stab him with that". Mr. Murdoch is close to Mr. Kushner, who has been in open warfare with Mr. Bannon since the spring.

"I'm not allowed to joke anymore, I've learned that", Scaramucci said in a follow-up to his Stark joke. Among a stable of kakistocrats who are mostly concerned with the ruthless pursuit of wealth, power, or far darker goals, the former White House communications director was at least amusing.

He has told associates that he has no plans to leave the White House and would only do so if Trump fires him.

"You also got this sort of Bannon-bart influence in there, which I think is a snag on the president", Scaramucci said, referencing Bannon's former position as the head of the alt-right website Breitbart News.
