Twitter held a roast of Steve Bannon on Thursday morning following comments Donald Trump made after news broke that top aides Bannon and Jared Kushner have been infighting.
“Let’s just say we encourage Steve to fly United,” one user tweeted, referring to the incident earlier this week in which a passenger was brutally dragged off a plane.
“Steve Bannon looks the before picture in a fungal toenail commercial,” tweeted another.
Bannon and Kushner have been long rumored to have a feud in the White House, but Trump seemed to admit that he would side with his son-in-law if forced to make a decision.
“I like Steve, but you have to remember he was not involved in my campaign until very late,” Trump told the New York Post. “I had already beaten all the senators and all the governors, and I didn’t know Steve. I’m my own strategist and it wasn’t like I was going to change strategies because I was facing crooked Hillary.”
Post reporter Michael Goodwin asked Trump if he is still confident in Bannon. Tellingly, he did not receive a definitive answer.
“Steve is a good guy, but I told them to straighten it out or I will,” Trump said. Many outlets, including NPR, said his comments could signal Bannon’s way out.
Earlier this month, Bannon was removed from National Security Council. The decision to remove Bannon was made by Trump, according to the Associated Press. It reversed an unpopular decision that Trump made when he named Bannon to the NSC in the first place, as many felt it was inappropriate for a political adviser to make decisions on national security matters.
