Steve Bannon is Donald Trump’s new White House strategist, signaling the fact that he definitely has radical tendencies in mind for his administration. Bannon is the former president of Breitbart News, the ultra conservative publication so far to the right, its followers don’t even recognize the other direction. Bloomberg News said: Steve Bannon, “is the most dangerous political operative in America. That’s scary, considering his position in the new Trump administration.
Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, screamed foul, spouting off Bannon’s credentials:
“He has got a Harvard business degree. He’s a Naval officer. He has success in entertainment. I don’t know if you’re aware of that. And he certainly was a Goldman Sachs managing partner. Brilliant tactician.”
I wonder if he was the “brilliant tactician” that almost brought Goldman Sachs down when it defrauded its customers in a hedge fund scandal, part of the George W. Bush financial disaster that almost brought the country down? But my concern is more with the fact that the Tea Party–remember them?–has endorsed not only Steve Bannon but also Reince Priebus, former head of the RNC and now Trump’s Chief of Staff.
It’s hard to see how the election of Donald Trump could get any more bizarre but it just did. Anyone want to predict what’s next?
