A Twitter account for a podcast run by former White House Chief Strategy Officer Steve Bannon was permanently suspended by the social media company after he offered to behead Dr. Anthony Fauci and FBI Director Christopher Wray.
Bannon, speaking on his “War Room” podcast, said Trump should not just fire Wray and Fauci, he should dismiss government officials “as a warning to federal officials.”
“I really want to go back to the old days of Tudor England,” Bannon said in a weird voice.
“I put heads in heads. I will put them in the two corners of the White House as a warning to federal officials, you can join the show or you̵7;re gone, ”he added.
In an email, Twitter said it had “permanently suspended” Bannon’s @WarRoomPandemic account after Bannon’s statement.
“The @WarRoomPandemic account has been permanently suspended for violating the Twitter Rules, especially our policy of honoring violence,” a Twitter spokesperson said in a statement.
Bannon was released on bail after he was arrested by federal authorities in August and charged with fraud and money laundering over an alleged scheme to profite online fundraiser sponsors ” We Build the Wall “
Bannon pleaded not guilty to those allegations, made in the Southern District of New York, and stated that they were a “failure” by those who wanted to prevent the border wall from being built.
