Steve Bannon may be a soulless, conniving white supremacist… but there are apparently even more sinister serpents slithering about the Republican media!
Namely Megyn Kelly, who, according to Donald Trump's key advisor, is "the devil" for turning against former Fox News CEO (and serial harasser) Roger Ailes.
Before he was the White House Chief Strategist, Bannon was the executive editor of Breitbart — which was pinned against Fox News in a clash of conservative media outlets during Trump's campaign.

A Politico article examined the fracture in the conservative media — and, ultimately, the Republican party — caused by Trump's rise in politics.
Critics would argue that the conservative media blowup was part of Trump's puppet master's (Bannon? Vladimir Putin?) plan to make way for the populist candidate, but Bannon would tell you it's all Megyn Kelly's fault!
Bannon said it was Kelly's relentless hounding of Trump during election season that made the conservative outlets come to blows, explaining:
"The big rift between Breitbart and Fox was all over Megyn Kelly. She was all over Trump nonstop."
Yup, blame everything on the woman trying to hold a powerful presidential candidate accountable for his slimy actions.
But because Bannon's evil super powers allow him to see into the future, he tried to warn Ailes that The Kelly File host would blow up his whole misogynistic culture at the cable news network. He said to the former CEO of Kelly:
"She's the devil, and she will turn on you."
Damn that Devil, Megyn Kelly! The popular anchor did eventually speak out about how Ailes sexually harassed her at the beginning of her career.

After fellow Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson filed her explosive sexual harassment lawsuit against Ailes last July, Kelly was asked to publicly defend Ailes.
Instead, she — as the clairvoyant Bannon had so predicted — "turned" on him, by refusing to lie to protect him. She detailed in her memoir Settle for More right before leaving the network:
"I could ensure that the owners of Fox News Channel - Rupert Murdoch and his sons - understood they might actually have a predator running their company."
And that predator would've gotten away with it too if it wasn't for that rotten, blonde devil!
Nice try, Steven. Now, back to hell with you…
