The alt-right is turning its back on Steve Bannon

The knives are officially out between Steve Bannon and President Donald Trump. And if Bannon, who once described his website Breitbart as a “platform for the alt-right,” thought that the loose network of white nationalists, misogynists and neo-Nazis were going to have his back, he was mistaken.

“To us, Bannon has been done as an ideological force for a long time,” wrote Evan McLaren, the executive director of the National Policy Institute, the group founded by alt-right figurehead Richard Spencer. “Bannon is only relevant to the extent he makes money flow, to causes and candidates.”

 On Wednesday, New York Magazine dropped an excerpt from Michael Wolff’s highly-anticipated book about the inner workings of the Trump White House, “Fire and Fury.” As it turns out, the former Trump campaign and White House strategist has been speaking quite freely with Wolff, both before and perhaps after he was fired in August and returned to his perch as editor of Breitbart.
