Donald Trump announced two additions to his cabinet and one of them is known extremist and Breitbart News chairman Steve Bannon.
Right when you wanted to follow Dave Chappelle‘s lead and consider giving Trump a shot, he goes and proves why that’s not possible.
Trump named Republican Party Chairman Reince Priebus to be his new Chief of Staff and Steve Bannon, executive chairman of Breitbart News, as chief strategist and senior counselor.
The Priebus announcement comes as a surprise since Trump called him and the rest of the party out during his many Republican presidential debates. He accused Priebus of rigging the election against him.
As far as Bannon is concerned, there is no surprise there. Brannon was the Trump campaign’s CEO and is assumed to be the man responsible for drumming up the hate and controversy that that Trump thrived on.
Breitbart News, the company that Bannon runs, has become known as a haven for White nationalist rhetoric. Just like the KKK-endorsed Trump who refused to address how problematic that is, Bannon has also brushed off the racist base of the site by saying things like, “Are there racist people involved in the alt-right? Absolutely.” But insisting that they don’t represent them as a whole.
