Steve Bannon disinvited from New Yorker Festival after backlash – NBC News

This is such a hard one. If you listen to Bill Maher he’ll tell you that doing this kind of thing is not only a form of censorship but it elevates those people we dislike even more by giving them more attention. If you look at it from Jim Carrey or Judd Apatow’s one of you they don’t want to be on stage with a hate monger. So what does one do? I guess that’s the question for the ages. I am not comfortable with either scenario and I wish our politics were not so divisive but they are. And the man who is one of the architects of this divisiveness is Steve Bannon and so I say give him more to say about the liberal or the left to his core supporters which are not going to change and keep him up stages as much as we possibly can.

Omarosa claims in new book: Trump ‘racist,’ used N-word, tried to buy her silence – NBC News

Thank you Captain Obvious !

I truly believe that Donald Trump is a racist. I don’t know when this racist Street came out or if it was always there and just was hittin. His father discriminated against African-Americans in renting to them and was find by the Fair Housing Commission because of it. As they say the Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Look at the racist comments that Don Jr says on a regular basis. That he called her the n-word does not surprise me. That he tried to pay her off with a $15, 000 a month step end, does not surprise me. It’s his MO, he pays people off for their silence, just ask Michael Cohen.

And look at who this President surrounds himself. He dredged up the worst muck from Breitbart and put them in the White House. They are the ones who suggested that he says that there were good people on both sides in Charlottesville. One side killed someone the other side was protesting, how can you make a correlation ?

This presidency wants me to spout phrases like you sleep with dogs and you get fleas and so on and so on and so on. Omarosa was never White House material and having her there recording his conversations shows the American people how in-depth this man is as President.

Trump goes full Breitbart, Alt-right – POLITICO

A couple weeks ago on the cover of Time Magazine had a caricature of Donald Trump melting alike a candle with the caption meltdown. Now we need a new one that shows him cracking up and becoming more nazi-like. I think his number one error in this campaign is surrounding himself with the salt right people who have been filling his head with these conspiracy theories. And right now although he denies it I believe he is going on a scorched-earth campaign. He reminds me of President Assad of Syria who Aldo has basically destroyed the city continues to bomb Aleppo into dust. Donald Trump wants to do that to our form of government under the influence of Steve Bannon formerly of breitbart.com. his rhetoric has turned ugly as the news media have pointed light on to him. It’s not a conspiracy that he was recorded saying those horrendous things about women. It’s not a conspiracy that he was Howard Stern saying horrible things about women. It’s not a conspiracy that he owns Antone’s beauty pageants where he ran like he was the king. It’s not a conspiracy that women in our country see this and don’t want to vote for him. The only conspiracy is a conspiracy that’s in his head and in the heads of those around him.

Trump campaign CEO once charged in domestic violence case – POLITICO

This revelation is not overly surprising to me. I’ve learned in my 62 years that people who hate one group usually don’t manifest that against just one group. This man’s hatred is so deep that I’m not willing to say his name. That Donald Trump put him into his cabal is surprising. But maybe that’s what we need to know about Donald Trump. Yes I know the rhetoric for the last 15 months has been ugly butt everyone said that Donald Trump was a nice guy once you met him personally. I’m starting not to believe that. Breitbart.com is a stain on our nation and that Donald Trump brought this man into his fold is an even bigger stain on our nation. Let’s not just the feet Donald Trump let’s make sure that Robby Mook’s 50 state strategy comes true.

Rachel Maddow: Racist red flags follow Trump Breitbart hire, Steve Bannon – MSNBC

As quickly as Chris Matthews on Hardball disappointed today, Rachel Maddow came back to the rescue. In a hard-hitting piece that started off with the speech writer that wrote the speech by the mother of the gentleman who was killed in Benghazi accusing Hillary Clinton of causing her son’s death who is now voting for Hillary Clinton. Then came her invitation to the scary blonde haired individual who is now Donald Trump’s campaign manager to come on the show at any time. To her saying that Hillary Clinton has been on her show 4 times this election season but Donald Trump has been on it a few times. Asking Donald Trump to come and make an appearance on the show. To the interview with the author of The Crystal Ball another one of the web sites that predict the outcome of the election. And then there was the skating commentary on Donald Trump’s new campaign CEO the founder of breitbart.com and his racist and hateful rhetoric. This was the punch counter-punch to Chris Matthews being a wimp on his show. Congratulations to Rachel Maddow and I hope you will click on the link below and watch the clip it’s well worth it.

Rachel Maddow: Trump changes staff at the top to make campaign even Trumpier – MSNBC

Today was one of the Rachel Maddow Show best shows. 

She started with the interview which was with Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager. It’s amazing how wonderful and pleasant he is despite the ugliness on the other side. Her interview with him was fair and made you see that she’s on our side. After the interview Rachel had a little spot where she explained that She interviewed Hillary Clinton 4 times in the last year and she has never been propped up by pillows. If you don’t know this new internet conspiracy theory, the Republicans are trying to say that Hillary is sick and needs to be propped up by pillows. I don’t know how being propped up by pillows makes you feel better if your sick or do your job better. But then Republicans don’t usually make a lot of sense to me.

And how long the segments of the show she explained how breitbart.com and Donald Trump have had a parallel thought line. When will you heard inexplicably Donald Trump attacking John McCain as not a war hero he was mirroring Breitbart. When Donald Trump said that President Obama was not an American he was mirroring Breitbart. So having the head of Breitbart run his campaign is the next logical step. We need to be ready for an assault of ugliness. That coupled with the fact that Roger Ailes is Donald Trump unofficial debate coach is not showing for a Rosy future. Roger Ailes in 1988 was a little-known Republican strategist. When the debate Commission in 1987 said that there would be three presidential debates and one vice presidential debate no one argued about it. But when poppy Bush did poorly against Michael Dukakis, Roger Ailes stepped in and told poppy Bush that there should be no more debates. And that year there was only one presidential debate and one vice presidential debate. So I doubt if we’re going to see all the debates that are scheduled for the presidential campaign this year because I’m sure Roger Ailes will realize that he has a dud as a debater in Donald Trump and will put a kibosh on any further debates.

Which brings us to today’s blog post about the campaign changes in the Trump camp and how they’re going to make the campaign a better reflection of Donald Trump. In fact I believe that they’re going to make the campaign a better reflection of breitbart.com, and that’s a scary thought. Breitbart is the Bastion of white supremacy and racism on the internet. God help us in the next 82 days.
