Steve Bannon lashes out at Trump over his NFT stunt: ‘I can’t do this anymore’

Steve Bannon and other former advisers to Donald Trump aren’t too keen on his recent “major announcement” which turned out to be a sales push for his new “digital trading cards.”

Speaking on his War Room show this Friday, Bannon said that the people behind his new NFT collection should be “fired.”

“I can’t do this anymore,” Bannon said, sounding exasperated. He added that Trump was “one of the greatest presidents in history,” and said he still “loves the folks” who work around him, “But we’re at war. They oughta be fired today.”

From the New York Post this Thursday:

The former president, 76, teased a “major announcement” with a superhero-themed video that sparked a swirl of speculation Wednesday — only to reveal Thursday that he was actually just launching a cringey new digital trading card line.

The 45th president’s new NFT collection depicts — who else? — himself in various forms of, well, highly virtual reality.

Trump is featured with a chiseled chest wearing a cape, triumphantly riding an elephant and sporting a dapper James Bond-style tuxedo in the cards, according to his announcement on Truth Social.

Bannon was joined on the segment by former Trump White House advisers Sebastian Gorka and Steve Cortes, who both agreed with Bannon’s assessment.

According to Gorka, Trump’s NFT launch “never should have happened.”

“Whoever wrote that pitch should be fired and should never be involved” in any part of Trump’s 2024 campaign, he said. “We don’t have time to waste … the president should not be involved with this,” he said. Cortes went a step further, saying that the “firing of everybody” helping Trump at Mar-a-Lago is warranted.
