Samantha Bee Takes a Closer Look at Donald Trump’s Potential Cabinet
Sam Bee and Full Frontal are reacting to the latest potential appointments Trump might be making when he moves into the White House. That includes Stephen Bannon, Chief Executive of Breitbart News and Chief Executive of the Trump campaign. Guess the results of the damned election are already pouring in.
Breitbart News is a self proclaimed “alt-right” “news” source. Amongst establishment GOP appointees like RNC chair Reince Priebus as Chief of Staff, Bannon sticks out like a sore thumb. Because that’s how establishment GOP would likely describe the so-called “alt-right”.
The reaction to the Bannon announcement sparked a Twitter moment. People like Newt Gingrich, another assumed Trump appointee, rushed to Bannon’s defense. Others, like conservative independent Presidential candidate Evan McMullin, went on the attack. Read these tweets and others:
It makes sense that Samantha Bee, a rational person, would also have a problem with Steve Bannon. His comments throughout the years have led to ties with white nationalists and other white supremacists and hate groups. Plus there’s the wife-beating thing, the rampant misogyny thing, the virulent anti-Semitism… He’s just not in general a great person. These four years are gonna be FUN.
(Oh, by the way, if you don’t want Bannon in the White House, sign the Southern Poverty Law Center’s petition to keep him out of there.)
