"... folks that are bitter the election's over ..."

House Democrats are demanding that the winner of Tuesday’s presidential election should listen to the losing party in shaping the next administration.

A group of 169 House Democrats are insisting President-elect Donald Trump rescind the appointment of Breitbart News Executive Steve Bannon as Trump’s chief strategist and senior counselor. Bannon served as Trump’s campaign CEO for the final months of the general election campaign.

“Bigotry, anti-Semitism and xenophobia should have no place in our society, and they certainly have no place in the White House,” Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., said Wednesday in a statement.

“Whether intentional or not, the appointment of Mr. Bannon sends a disturbing message about what kind of president Donald Trump wants to be,” he added.

No Republicans signed the letter to Trump. Last week, Republicans gained control of the White House while maintaining control of both houses of Congress.

The letter to Trump said unity is impossible while Trump has an adviser like Bannon.

“Unfortunately, your appointment of Stephen Bannon, whose ties to the white nationalist movement have been well-documented, directly undermines your ability to unite the country,” the letter said.

“Millions of Americans have expressed fear and concern about how they will be treated by the Trump administration and your appointment of Mr. Bannon only exacerbates and validates their concerns. We strongly believe that Mr. Bannon’s appointment will not allow the country to heal and come together as one,” the letter added.

As Democrats hammered Bannon, others defended him.

Bannon’s critics are “folks that are bitter the election’s over,” Trump spokesman Jason Miller said. “They didn’t get the result that they wanted.”

“Steve Bannon is someone who’s done a fantastic job implementing the president-elect’s vision on the campaign trail,” Miller said. “He’s someone I’ve had the opportunity to work with over the past three or four months, someone I’ve seen very high character from.”

Breitbart Senior Editor-at-large Joel Pollak told NPR that Bannon “has no prejudices, he treats people equally, and, in fact, during my time working closely with him at Breitbart for five years, he sought out people from diverse backgrounds and gave them a voice at Breitbart.”

Pollak said Bannon is “from a conservative perspective at least, a national hero, because in helping Donald Trump win, he’s helped defend the Supreme Court and the Constitution.”

I've got a better solution!!!!!!!!!

Unity?...the democrats wouldn't know unity if it was a self-inserting suppository. All they've ever done my whole life is divide, deceive, delude, disenfranchise and demoralize. They're this generation's "slime of humanity". Ban them indeed.

Great point!

Anyone the dumb o crates don't like is good news for US, our side!

Frank, they are doing it ALL BY THEMSELVES!!!  And it's a riot to watch!!!  Just imagine the next 2 years, starting with Keith Ellison!!!!!  Everything they do these days reinforces the election of Donald J. Trump.

....and I'm lovin' it!

NO, He should stay..that is Trumps' choice and they have no say..so there.

when DID IT BECOME STANDARD PRACTICE for the LOSING side to DICTATE THE TERMS UNDER HOW A NEW ADMINISTRATION DOES THINGS????

The Democrats LOST the election in The White House The House of Reps. & The Senate A LOSS IS STILL LOOSING IS STILL LOOSING IS STILL LOOSING & the Dems. LOST!!!!!!!

Sounds more like it is 'BLACKMAIL' AND LESS LIKE A REQUEST FOR UNITY. . . .An Or Else - - -

Is it impossible for them to get it? They Do Not Decide Anything for Pres Elect Trump! They did not control him in the runup to the Election and they damn sure will not NOW!  This reminds me of their Grade School sitin!!

Mr Bannon is far a better pick then the man Obama picked Van Jones he proved to be a low life that wanted freedom in America to be vanished and Communism to replace the foundation this Great Nation was built on. I think Trump has the right to keep who he wants, and if it up sets the demon rats to bad there welcome to move to the Middle East starting from the sanction city's and the colleges that want to protect the Mexican cartel and the ISIS implants that is hiding in the sanction city's waiting to rise up to cause havick to all America people. It seems our youth today have been feed a 7 course meat of socialism and they like the crap there feed. There seems to be no shame in their actions from killing police officers to destroying cars and homes to businesses. Shouldn't those who are being attacked have the right to protect their family's and homes and income. Is it going to take students being shot like in the past, I'd pray not. But when there isn't any order, there is anarchy And it brings evil things to happen. If those aginist our laws are law Braker's and should be treated as shouch no one is above the Law and perhaps they need reminded. When a persons freedom is taken they soon learn to respect it. It has always be known that a person will fight to keep something they got, rather then to work to get it.

Tell the House & Senate Democrats to go POUND SAND!

Such arrogance?!

ALERT ALERT

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
