‘Shut up’ and ‘go away’: White House aides are already tired of hearing from Steve Bannon as the former chief strategist gives major interview to ’60 Minutes’

‘Shut up’ and ‘go away’: White House aides are already tired of hearing from Steve Bannon as the former chief strategist gives major interview to ’60 Minutes’, by David Martosko.

Charlie Rose of CBS News interviewed former chief White House strategist Steve Bannon on Wednesday at the ‘Breitbart Embassy,’ a row house in Washington’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.

’60 Minutes’ will air the juiciest bits of their discussion Sunday night …

‘Steve should take his own advice and shut up for awhile,’ one White House official told DailyMail.com as news of the ’60 Minute’ interview broke on Wednesday.

‘Now that he’s gone he can showboat all he wants, I guess, but it’s just going to underscore what a lousy, lousy team player he always was.’ …

The 63-year-old now finds himself on the outside looking in, forced out of the Trump administration by a new guard that is squeezing out chaos in favor of regular order.

Yet his relevance as the father of Trump’s brand of ‘economic nationalism’ has him clinging to Trump’s legacy and has the news media unable to look away.

Politico ranked him #1 this week in its annual survey of the most relevant political voices in America. …

Once an anti-media insider whose White House office wall sported a white board to keep track of campaign promises, now Bannon is working his own game – one that could cross swords with Trump’s.

‘Steve is in it for Steve’s issues, for Steve’s punch-list, for Steve’s vision,’ one Bannon associate told DailyMail.com on Tuesday.

‘When Trump’s agenda lined up with the changes he wanted to see [in government], he was all-in,’ the source said. ‘But he was always more of an ideologue than anyone’s loyal footsoldier.’ …

Another West Wing aide …: ‘Like it or not, Steve helped get us here. So he always deserved his 15 minutes,’ the aide said, before qualifying his praise: ‘It would be nice if he’d just go away, though.’
