"Does he order his spine on Amazon Prime?"

Murdoch, the owner of Fox News and The Wall Street Journal, believes Bannon is toxic, and his extreme "alt-right" worldview detrimental to Trump's presidency. "Condemning white supremacy and neo-Nazis is a one-inch putt", he said. "Who stopped him from doing that?"

In the end, this could come down to the president's newly forged relationship with Kelly. "I said he was, and I obviously got caught on tape saying he was, so I have no problem saying that", Scaramucci replied.

Colbert then spent some time needling President Trump over his initial response to the tragedy.

While Colbert promised Scaramucci he wouldn't ask him any rapid-fire "gotcha" questions, he had to ask one.

"It's a super tough job", Scaramucci said.

Adding to his comments about Trump giving up his "luxurious lifestyle", Scaramucci continued to stand up for Trump.

The next scheduled court hearing is August 25, though Fields' attorney could request a bond hearing before then. Fields grew up in Kentucky and recently moved to OH , his mother, Samantha Bloom, told The Associated Press .

Trump finally did specify them on Monday, but Colbert couldn't accept that as an excuse for why it had taken Trump two days to finally point out the reprehensible views that had caused the Charlottesville violence. "We're supposed to feel bad for the guy?"

It was a pretty awkward interview.

Scaramucci gave ABC his first interview since he was sacked as communications director in late July, just 11 days into his post. According to NYT reporter Maggie Haberman, a source close to the White House told her that Bannon will be shitcanned either "this week or not for a long time". "There was a lot of in-fighting".

"You also got this sort of Bannon-bart influence in there, which I think is a snag on the president", suggested Scaramucci, referring to Bannon's former right-wing news outlet, Breitbart News.

President Trump on Tuesday mounted a defense of sorts of Steve Bannon, his top strategist and arguably the most potent hard-right nationalist aide in the White House, without ever dismissing calls for him to be fired.

'What I don't like is the toleration of it, for me it's something that should not be tolerated'. "It's something that should be completely and totallly intolerated". "I find it disgusting and reprehensible, and I will renounce it every living day of my life". Scaramucci gave Colbert a knife engraved with "Stephen Colbert". "When you take a job like that, you know your expiration is coming".

"I don't think the White House has a chance of functioning properly as long as there is a resident lunatic fringe", said Mr Mark Salter, a long-time adviser to Republican Senator John McCain. "I appreciated the oppty".
