Recently fired CNN commentator Jeffrey Lord might be following Steve Bannon to the hard-right news site Breitbart News, the Daily Beast reported Monday.
CNN cut ties with Lord two weeks ago after he tweeted a Nazi salute at a critic. Retained by the network in August 2015, the conservative commentator was an indefatigable on-air supporter of Donald Trump throughout his candidacy and since his election.
Bannon was ousted from his White House post last Friday and rejoined Breitbart as executive chairman a few hours after the news was announced.
Lord, Bannon and Trump have previously expressed mutual admiration, and Bannon spoke with Lord after CNN canned him. The Daily Beast said Bannon was “eyeing” Lord for a job with the site and that discussions between the outlet and commentator were in the “preliminary stages.”
Lord last week emailed The Daily Beast and said that he had “three possibilities already! LOL!”
