Bannon Appointment Underscores Danger of Trump Presidency

In response to the appointment of campaign strategist Stephen Bannon to a senior role within the Trump Administration, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04) released the following statement

By - Nov 14th, 2016 05:32 pm

“After his victory, I tried to give President-elect Trump the benefit of the doubt that he truly wanted to unite us and heal the wounds that have left our nation so deeply divided. I had hoped his bigoted rhetoric was merely a campaign tactic, but after learning of the appointment of Stephen Bannon — a prominent leader in the white nationalist and alt-right movements — as a senior counselor to the president, my darkest fears about the man who will soon lead our country were strongly reaffirmed.

“Stephen Bannon has no place in the White House and his racist views have no place in our society. Put simply, he is a hate peddler, and the Breitbart News Network he manages is nothing more than a well of depravity masquerading as journalism. His appointment — one of President-elect Trump’s first official acts — is not only mortifying, but also a stark reminder of how far our country has to go in quelling hate both inside and outside the halls of government.”

    If you also oppose Trump’s appointment of Bannon, call the D.C. office of Paul Ryan right now to let him know. 202-225-3031. I just did.

  2. Al Lindro says:

    What leverage do you think Paul Ryan has over the naming of anyone, Bannon or otherwise, to be part of Trump’s circle of advisors? It’s not like Ryan is a trusted “friend of The Donald”. Ryan mostly snubbed Trump until he said he would vote for him over Clinton (for obvious reasons, given his role in the GOP. Moreover, Bannon’s publication was behind the challenger to Ryan’s seat in Congress (talk about a futile effort), so any squawk from Rep Ryan could be labeled as motivated by that silliness.

    Something tells me that the selection of Bannon is nothing on which Ryan would want to waste his time.
