Tonight: Steve Bannon, forced off the NSC by White House rival Jared Kushner, commits what some are calling a 'TCM.' #LSSC #TCM pic.twitter.com/AllTUQt2aI— The Late Show (@colbertlateshow) April 7, 2017
Stephen Colbert poked fun at the reported power struggle between Donald Trump’s son-in-law/senior adviser Jared Kushner and the president’s chief strategist Steve Bannon on Thursday.
Following reports that Kushner helped push Bannon from the National Security Council, the “Late Show” host said he “wasn’t surprised” because there was “known friction” between the pair.
Colbert also noted how Bannon allegedly used derogatory terms for Kushner, but then tore into the former Breitbart News executive chairman for going back on one of his promises.
