CEO Stephen Bannon And Donald Trump Are A Match Made In Heaven
It’s only fitting that a man who spent his life ruining casinos is chasing his losses by doubling down. Donald Trump’s latest last-ditch effort to revive his failing campaign has led the GOP Nominee to appoint former Breitbart chief Stephen Bannon as the CEO of his presidential campaign, and according to a former Breitbart staffer, Trump is basically hiring Trump. Kurt Bardella, who worked at Breitbart with Bannon for two years, told ABC News that his ex-boss would routinely make racist and xenophobic remarks during routine professional calls.
Does that sound like a certain candidate you know?
“If anyone sat there and listened to that call, you’d think that you were attending a white supremacist rally,” said Bardella, citing what he called Bannon’s “nationalism and hatred for immigrants, people coming into this country to try to get a better life for themselves.”
“This is someone who has a very low moral compass,” he said of Bannon, “and the idea that this is the type of person that Donald Trump, as the Republican nominee, as president, would have closest to him is very disturbing.”
Like everyone from military officials to Soviet defectors, Bardella clearly sees danger:
“I think it’s incredibly concerning and dangerous actually to have someone have this kind of influence with the person who is running for president of the United States, who would be a top adviser if he were to win the election,” he cautioned.
Expect More Dog Whistle Politics From Trump Tower
It’s obvious that Trump has fueled his campaign by reaching out to white supremacists. He has continually disparaged women. His Latino outreach couldn’t possibly be more disgusting or pathetic. While the campaign shakeup may give an aura of redirection, it’s clearly more of the same. As evidenced by the Bannon hire, we should expect nothing to change. And neither does Bardella:
Asked how he thinks Bannon’s hiring will affect the Trump campaign, Bardella said: “It’s going to look like exactly what it’s looked like to this point.”
“Chaos, undisciplined, a lot of attacks, negativity,” Bardella said. “There is no vision for moving this country forward. It’s just a portrait of negativity and ugliness and pitting people against one another, and using coded language to try to send certain hints to the very core constituencies.”
Is there any other conclusion other than this is who Donald Trump is? Could there possibly be anyone left hoping for sanity and reason from the GOP ticket? The Trump campaign has been in business since June of 2015. Time after time it has had to answer for it’s deplorable remarks and proposals geared towards non-white, non-Christian, non-straight males. Adding Bannon may be the most noteworthy decision Trump has made to date. A sick and twisted candidate wants a sick and twisted CEO to “rescue” his campaign.
The USS Trump is sinking, and instead of unpacking the life preservers, they blew another hole in the hull. This is Trump’s America.
