Breitbart chief Steve Bannon in running for White House chief of staff, because who better to lead a Donald Trump administration?


Steve Bannon, the former head of Breitbart News, may have an actual role in the Oval Office, as reports are indicating that President-elect Donald Trump is considering him to be his White House chief of staff.

In August, Bannon took a hiatus from white nationalist website Breitbart, which he previously managed, to become the chairman of Trump’s campaign. Bannon developed a reputation as an “evil genius” who brings a scorched-earth approach when dealing with employees. He is beloved on the far-right for targeting liberal groups such as ACORN and Planned Parenthood.

Bannon has been the mastermind behind some of Trump’s more controversial stunts, including when Trump held an impromptu press event with women who had accused former President Bill Clinton of sexual assault and misconduct.

The president-elect’s transition team is rushing to fill cabinet positions as well as the hundreds of posts that require a security clearance.
Reince Priebus, the RNC chairman who stuck by Trump despite his blatant chauvinism, is also reportedly in the running for the position.

Who Trump names as White House chief of staff will shed light on a Trump administration. Priebus is an experienced Washington operative who represents the center base of the Republican Party, while Bannon is one of the main proponents of the alt-right. That a president of the United States is even considering an accused anti-semite to be his right-hand man shows the ugly predicament the West Wing is facing.

Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump’s canny campaign manager, has also been speculated as a possible choice for the chief of staff job.
