Trump Pivots by Hiring a White Supremacist to Run His Campaign

A little context about just who Stephen Bannon is:

"Former Breitbart Staffer: Trump campaign manager Bannon talked like a white supremacist."

"Former Breitbart Staffer to Powerhouse Politics: Bannon Ran Meetings That Sounded Like White Supremacists Talking."

"A former Breitbart News spokesman slammed Donald Trump’s new campaign chief executive, Stephen Bannon, for allegedly using racist rhetoric during editorial meetings at Breitbart that he said sounded "like a white supremacist rally," while a Trump ally calls the new CEO a positive addition to the team. Both men joined this week’s episode of ABC News’ Powerhouse Politics podcast."

"Kurt Bardella, who worked with Bannon at Breitbart for two years, says the former Breitbart News chairman regularly disparaged minorities, women, and immigrants during daily editorial calls at the publication."

This is what some in the media are dressing up as the Trump Pivot.

More to give you an idea of what a classy organization Breitbart really is and how on the up and up it is:

"Breitbart Editor Milo Yiannopoulos Takes $100,000 for Charity, Gives $0"

"The alt-right icon promised to give scholarships to white men, but almost a year later he still hasn’t filed with the IRS or handed out a penny."

"Months after he was supposed to give away more than $100,000 for college scholarships,Milo Yiannopoulos says all of the money is still sitting in his bank account."

"The Breitbart editor and professional political agitator (recently banned from Twitter for harassment) came under fire this week as allegations surfaced that his charity, which would provide college scholarships exclusively to white men, has so far done no charity work with the money."

"Yiannopoulos told The Daily Beast on Thursday that his lawyers are drafting paperwork that would establish it as a legal charity, but experts say that the way in which the “Yiannopoulos Privilege Grant” accepted donations was unethical and possibly illegal."
Sounds very similar to Trump's own charitable giving.


  1. I predict a power struggle between Kellyanne and Bannon. It'd be great if Kellyanne loses, but in case it's Bannon who loses, I think Trump will get tired of being on her leash and Lewindowski will make a comeback for the home stretch! =)

    1. It's like reading about Hitler's inner circle in the bunker... all backstabbing each other to be on top -- for the final week of the regime.

    2. Yes, I just wrote about the very bad comparison for Trump of his campaign team vs. Hillary's

      Comparing the Trump campaign team to Hillary's is embarrassment for Trump


    1. Yep and the guy who wrote the 'Hillary killed my son' speech is #WithHer

  3. Good one from Jen Rubin:
