During his sit-down with Carlson, the SpaceX founder spoke about his $44 billion acquisition of the social media giant, matters of privacy online, and massive layoffs.

Musk fired about 80 percent of the workforce and justified his decision to Carlson. "If you're not trying to run some sort of glorified activist organization with – and you don't care that much about censorship, then you can really let go of a lot of people, it turns out," he explained.

Musk told Carlson he was surprised the government has "full access" to "everything that was going on" with Twitter.

In response, Bannon said people should keep a watchful eye on Musk during an episode of his War Room podcast, suggesting his recent interview with Carlson only further solidifies that.

"Anybody watch that interview with Tucker Carlson last night that's buying this guy's snake oil — you're a fool," Bannon said. "Any of the fanboys and my brother, Darren Beatty, who I love, anybody that's out there, fanboying for Elon Musk — you're a fool, you're a fool, you're a fool."
