By Naming Bannon Strategist, Trump Teaches Biased Liberal Media Elections Have Consequences
The collective disgust the liberal media regurgitated on cue, upon learning Trump appointed Steve Bannon as Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor prove they still don’t get it. Trump didn’t run a campaign based on caring what the liberal media thinks, nor did the Americans who voted for him. In fact Trump, won one of the biggest upsets in election history, despite the media being in the tank, hook line and sinker, for Hillary Clinton.
Oozing with bias and ignorance, the liberal media mob called Bannon “a white supremacist, fascist, and neo-Nazi,” the same names they hurled at Trump. We see how that worked out. There’s been no shortage of screeching from liberals that Breitbart News, the news site run by Bannon, is a “racist hate site,” which is utterly ludicrous.

Mocking leftwing lunacy of “safe spaces, cultural appropriation,” and highlighting the problem of illegal aliens killing Americans, among other atrocities, Breitbart is actually the alternative to the race-baiting, politically correct, cop-hating, white-people shaming news outlets like CNN, New York Times and the Washington Post. People are sick of all this crap and the election of Trump was a repudiation of President Barack Obama’s divisive, costly, no-growth agenda.
Haughty liberal journalists and politicos arrogantly thought that Trump wouldn’t reward his loyalists like Bannon who helped him win. (Like Hillary wouldn’t have done exactly the same thing.) This goes back to the fact that the liberal media refuses to come to terms with the reality that they have lost their political influence and power. A new commander in chief has arrived in Washington and he’s not playing by their liberal hypocrisy playbook. There will be no softening of Trump!
The mercurial Trump named Washington insider RNC Chairman Reince Priebus as his Chief of Staff to strengthen his relationship with House Speaker Paul Ryan, and move his agenda forward in a GOP-controlled Congress. But make no mistake, Trump will never abandon the people who voted for him or the people who helped him win. The more the liberal media doubles down in trying to delegitimize his presidency, the more resolute Trump becomes to do things on his terms.
As liberal reporters accuse Trump of bigotry, let’s not forget the ones exhibiting the most reprehensible behavior toward the President-Elect.

Nice to see President Pussygrabber “drain the swamp” by reaching into it, pulling out @reince, and making this POS chief of staff

After Obama’s historic election, remember the outrage the liberal media expressed when people said racist things comparing America’s first black president to a gorilla and such? So much for the liberal media being watchdogs of decency and respect for the office of the presidency when they can’t get their guy, I mean girl, I mean woman, elected.
What the liberal media refuses to accept is that people like white nationalist David Duke, who voted for Trump, are outliers. The majority of white voters who helped Trump win were Democrat, working class, union-card-carrying Americans, living in blue states, who voted Republican for the first time in their lives. These aren’t racists; but rather, people who want to work again, not cling to empty promises of hope and change.
