Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump rocked the political media world this week by hiring Breitbart.com honcho Stephen K. Bannon to be his campaign CEO, and while the move has mainstream pundits scratching their heads, its meaning appears to be crystal clear to David Duke and his followers. The former Klan leader and current U.S. Senate candidate closed out the week celebrating the move with Stormfront-friendly radio co-host Don Advo, who got a chuckle from Duke by saying that the Bannon hire means
“We’ve taken over,” an assessment that Duke mostly agreed with:Don Advo: So, something extonishing has happened. We appear to have taken over the Republican Party."
Duke essentially agreed with Advo while using some reference to boll weevils that I live too far north to completely understand.
Personally I am a little surprised to hear this since I was never aware of a time when the racists DIDN'T control the Republican party.
In other "great news if you're not voting Republicans this year" it appears that Trump has another familiar face providing advice on foreign policy:
Tea Party firebrand Michele Bachmann says she is advising Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on foreign policy.
The former Minnesota congresswoman attended a fundraiser in the state for Trump on Saturday, where she revealed to the press that she has his ear on foreign policy.
“He also recognizes there is a threat around the world, not just here in Minnesota, of radical Islam,” she said, according to MPR News. “I wish our President Obama also understood the threat of radical Islam and took it seriously.”
If you have ever wondered if it is difficult to type while laughing hysterically the answer is yes it is difficult but I still managed to pull it off.
I know people kind of poo pooed the idea of Trump asking Sarah Palin to join his campaign, because that would indicate a lack of seriousness. But I have to ask at this point, "Would that really be any worse?"
