After getting the boot as the executive chairman from Breitbart News on Tuesday, Steve Bannon was also fired from the satellite radio company Sirius XM. The oust of the former chief strategist to President Donald Trump from Breitbart News Network and Sirius XM wedged a proverbial stake into his career.

A statement issued by Breitbart said, “Steve Bannon has stepped down from Breitbart News Network where he worked as executive chairman since 2012. Bannon and Breitbart will work together on a smooth and orderly transition.”

According to Breitbart CEO Larry Solov, “Steve is a valued part of our legacy, and we will always be grateful for his contributions, and what he has helped us to accomplish.”

The news of Bannon leaving Breitbart started making rounds last week when Republican billionaire donor Rebecca Mercer cut all ties with the former Trump aide after his explosive comments on the Trump administration in Michael Wolff’s book “Fire and Fury.”

The volatile remarks on the president’s family might be his greatest transgression in a slew of attacks on the administration. From criticizing the administration’s reforms and policies to taking aim at the president’s son Donald Trump Jr., Bannon devised his own fall from power and earned the nickname 'Sloppy Steve' for his troubles.

In addition to being banished from the White House due to a power struggle between the staffers and him, Bannon suffered a severe blow when Roy Moore, the candidate he rallied for, lost the Alabama election to a Democrat. In a string of losses, the democrats winning the state for the first time in decades was a significant blow to Bannon and the Republicans. When the dust settled, Bannon was left standing alone.

From being Trump’s most trusted ally to being a man without a country, Bannon had the worst year so far. Now that he burned all his bridges in Washington, the internet is rife with speculations over what is in store for the former Trump aide.

Joshua Green, author of Bannon’s biography “Devils’ Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump and the Storming of Presidency,” said it can be difficult to ascertain how Bannon will get himself out of the current predicament. In a span of one year, he managed to amass quite a few enemies in Washington, which resulted in him going from Trump’s most trusted advisor to his most despised adversary.

Green said, “Bannon has told people in the past, Trump is entirely transactional. But if he loses his platform at Breitbart News, then it's hard for me to see how he'll be able to wield the kind of influence that I describe in ‘Devil's Bargain,’ and that he seemed to have regained after leaving the White House last year,” reported CNN.

However, Green was hopeful. Bannon has crawled himself out of worse situations before, Green told CNN.

According to the author, Bannon once harbored desires to be the president. But, since his departure from the media empire, it might just end up being a pipe dream.

“It’s hard for me to envision what vehicle he would use to lead such a movement and how he would fund it. He's rich. But he's not self-fund-a-presidential-campaign rich,” said Green.

Bannon’s loss was Twitter’s gain. While some applauded Bannon's work with Breitbart, others mocked the former Trump aide. Here are some of the reactions on social media.
