Pretty much stating the obvious about the Chumph and his white supremacist cabinet…

Rep. Elijah Cummings blasts Bannon as ‘white supremacist-type,’ says Trump White House would disappoint MLK

A prominent House Democrat blasted top White House aide Stephen Bannon as a “white supremacist-type person” and said Martin Luther King, Jr. “would be very disappointed” with President Trump’s administration.

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee and a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, was asked — on the 49th anniversary of the civil right icon’s assassination — what he thought would have been King’s views on the current White House — and his answer was blunt.

“He would be pleased to have seen the first African-American elected president, to have seen many doors opened for people like me and others who now have opportunities that would not have had them back then,” Cummings said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“But at the same time, when we see a guy like Bannon” — Cummings continued, referring to Trump’s chief White House strategist — “who is, as far as I’m concerned, a white supremacist-type person, sitting in the White House, sitting in the White House, and I’m paying his salary, I think he would be very disappointed.”

Prior to working in the Trump White House and running the Trump campaign, Bannon was the executive editor of Breitbart News.

Under his leadership, the site grew to be the “premier website of the ‘alt-right’ — a loose-knit group of white nationalists and unabashed anti-Semites and racists,” as the Anti-Defamation League has put it.

The site has been accused of being a mouthpiece for controversial columnists Milo Yiannopoulos, who resigned earlier this year after appearing to defending pedophilia (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1w_8ozOPO80), and Austin Ruse, whose Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM), has been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Some of the site’s headlines in Bannon’s tenure include, “Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy,” “Bill Kristol: Republican Spoiler, Renegade Jew,” “The Solution To Online Harassment is Simple: Women Should Log Off” and “Political Correctness Protects Muslim Rape Culture,” and his fans include the Nazis.

As Trump’s chief strategist, Bannon was widely credited with being the mastermind behind several controversial executive orders, including one Trump signed that scraped guidelines telling public schools to let transgender students use the bathrooms and locker rooms matching their gender identities.

Another Trump Appointee…More Racist Baggage

Senator Jeff Sessions from Alabama is on the “A” list of Chumph appointees. Senator Sessions has a long history in the US Senate on the Armed Services Committee, and is probably the only qualified person on the Chumph list.

As you would expect, being a conservative Republican Sessions has a bit of racial baggage. What Sessions has said, ad his long term Chump support, pretty much indicates that the CHump’s cabinet will be filled with bigots and racist.

Likely Trump pick Jeff Sessions called white lawyer ‘a disgrace to his race’ for representing blacks

Jeff Sessions speaks to CNN (screen grab)

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R – AL) has been one of Donald Trump’s staunchest political allies over the past 18 months, and he’s likely to be rewarded with a cabinet appointment in the new administration.

Like most reported Trump cabinet appointees, however, he has his own share of baggage that could damage his chances of getting confirmed. The New York Timespoints out that Sessions once said that a white attorney may be a “disgrace to his race” because he defended black clients.

This revelation first came to light back in 1986, when then-president Ronald Reagan nominated Sessions to be a federal district court judge. During his confirmation hearing, Sessions was asked about the testimony of prosecutor J. Gerald Hebert, who first revealed that Sessions said that white lawyers who represent black clients may be traitors to their own race.

Sessions at the time acknowledged that he might have made the remark, although he went on to say that “I don’t know why I would have said that and I certainly don’t believe it.”

Others testified during the confirmation hearing that Sessions called both the NAACP and the ACLU “un-American” for “trying to force civil rights down the throats of people,” the Times reports.
