Trump appoints white-nationalist, anti-Semite Steve Bannon as Chief White House Stratigist

Trump's Pick of Steve Bannon as Chief Strategist Sparks Backlash

Steve Bannon, former president of the incendiary Breitbart News and more recently chief executive of Trump's campaign, is taking on a role as Donald Trump's "chief strategist and senior counselor."

Bannon's new position was listed above the announcement of RNC chair Reince Priebus as Trump's new chief of staff on a statement issued Sunday. It said Bannon and Priebus would be "equal partners."

Under Bannon's leadership, Breitbart espoused anti-Semitic and nationalist views. The site faced regular criticism — including from Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton — for its close ties to the "alt right," an online-based counterculture movement associated with white nationalism.

There was no shortage of reaction to Bannon's ascension to the West Wing.

Jonathan Greenblatt, chief executive of the Anti-Defamation League said:



America can anticipate a new wave of anti-black, anti-semite policies and legislation.

RNC chair Reince Priebus is something of a surprise too, because Donald Trump said he was going to 'drain the swamp' of establishment political hacks.  Here, we have a professional Washingtonian, who is going to open the door and call in all sorts of lobbyists.

Where is the 'new' in all of this?  So far from failing to drain the swamp, Trump is not even flushing the toilet after himself.

I keep telling everyone, he has a dual nature. It will trip him up but it will also save him.

Funny to see some of our most cynical members so hopeful about this administration ...

I think it's more of a relentless need and drive to contradict everything I say, but what the hey.

What about his promises? Those were not rhetoric. At some point there's going to be some mighty pissed-off storm troopers if we don't see a wall, see loading people onto boxcars and if we don't see millions without healthcare. He will become known as Donald the Betrayer.

Somehow, one promise I feel sure he will fulfill is a tax cut for the wealthy. It's clean, it's quiet and it won't be recognized until the next depression.

That's what I've been driving at and to make matters worse, you have to remember Trump was the guy they nominated precisely because they felt betrayed by the Republicans they'd elected before him, who got into power but failed to destroy American liberalism as they perceive it. When he fails, it could get nasty.

An English comedian's hilarious sketch.
His 'evil laughter' is brilliant  - and very apt, as Trumpee comes across exactly like a James Bond panto villain these days. Mwahahaha  Twisted Evil
