Just over an hour ago, Trump spokesman Jason Miller was asked about Trump’s decision to appoint Steve Bannon as Chief Strategist. Miller’s response? Bannon is “someone who’s been a fantastic example of really being inclusive. Someone who’s embraced diversity at every step.”
In response, DNC Communications Director Adam Hodge issued the following statement:
“Steve Bannon is not inclusive nor has he embraced diversity. The fact of the matter is that he’s a white supremacist, and there’s plenty of evidence to support that. End of story.”
Here’s some proof:
- As Executive Chairman of Breitbart News, he proudly claimed that it was the “platform for the alt-right.”
- He took credit for fomenting the “populist nationalist movement” long before Trump came along. The “populist nationalist movement” attracts racists, anti-Semites, and homophobes.
- He said that eradicated diseases are resurging in the United States “because of the migrants we’re letting in here.”
- Bannon called Khizr Kahn “one of the biggest proponents in the country as a legal scholar of Sharia law” and pledged to attack him “relentlessly.”
- Bannon questioned why we weren’t going to Islamic centers and rounding people up.
