Scaramucci: Bannon's 'toleration' of white nationalism is 'inexcusable'

"He has to move away from that sort of "Bannon-bart" nonsense", Scaramucci said, apparently combining Bannon's name with Breitbart, the website that Bannon ran before joining Trump's campaign past year.

He said that some of the turbulence of Trump's first six months is because "the president is not a representative of political establishment class, and for whatever reason people want to eject him".

He added that "you have to call that stuff out", given the "moral authority" of the President. Todd then asked, "Do you believe Steve Bannon does that?"

North Korea: US diplomacy is gaining results, says Mattis
But asked whether the United States was ready if North Korea did commit a hostile act, he responded: 'We are ready'. We obviously reiterate or welcome that commitment to peaceful diplomatic and political solution to the situation.

Speaking with ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on This Week, Scaramucci criticized the influence of the website Breitbart and Steve Bannon, who was the executive chairman of Breitbart before joining the Trump campaign and later the administration, saying that there's "this sort of "Bannon-bart" influence" in the White House that he thinks "is a snag on the president".

When discussing the influences that he thinks are impacting Trump, Scaramucci urged the president to take a more mainstream approach in order to sell his agenda. It's not serving the president's interests. "He's got to be more into where the moderates are and the independents ... that love the president, so if he does that he'll have a very successful legislative agenda", he said.

And McMaster delivered another vague reply, "I believe anyone that works in the White House who has the privilege, the great privilege every day, of serving their nation should be motivated by that goal".

"He likes doing the opposite of what the media thinks he's going to do".

"Well, obviously, I wish they would give me a bar of soap and tell me to go wash my mouth out in the bathroom and move on", Scaramucci said during the ABC interview.
