Jeffrey Lord Offered Breitbart Gig After CNN Firing

Conservative commentator might join Steve Bannon at right-wing news outlet

Conservative commentator and Donald Trump supporter Jeffrey Lord has been offered a position at Breitbart News, the right-wing outlet led by former White House official Steve Bannon.

The Daily Beast reports that Lord, who was recently fired from CNN over a tweet referencing Nazism, has been approached to join Breitbart as a regular writer or contributor.

Last week, Lord told The Daily Beast that he had received multiple offers, but was “taking a week off and then back to figuring out the future.”

Should Lord, a frequent Trump defender, join Breitbart, it would come just days after Bannon took back the reins of the site following his ouster from the Trump administration.

Lord was fired from the cable news network earlier this month after he tweeted “Sieg Heil” during an argument with Media Matters president Angelo Carusone. He later defended the tweet as “mocking Nazis and fascists” and refused to apologize.

CNN soon announced it was parting ways with Lord adding that “Nazi salutes are indefensible.” After the news became public, Lord responded on Twitter with a cryptic “LOL!”
