Even Glenn Beck Calls Trump's Chief Advisor Steve Bannon 'a Terrifying Man'

Mr Priebus says his role in the administration will be to help Trump "create an economy that works for everyone, secure our borders, repeal and replace Obamacare and destroy radical Islamic terrorism'".

"Rise to the dignity of the office of the president of the United States". A few months later, when Trump tapped Bannon to serve as a key adviser to his campaign, Beck raised the alarm again, declaring that Bannon was "quite possibly the most unsafe guy in all of American politics".

Reid said that Trump must do more to assure millions of Americans they have nothing to fear under his presidency and that he can start by rescinding the hire of Steve Bannon.

Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, said Reid's rhetoric was not appropriate on the Senate floor, and expressed hope the discussion would return to policy. He has "demeaned women, advocated for white supremacy and promoted anti-Semitism", the senator said Tuesday, The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported (http://bit.ly/2fkvTQh ).

Now that Trump has announced that Bannon will serve chief strategist and senior adviser in the White House, Beck issued another warning on his radio show today.

Reid made his incendiary comments about the appointment of Steve Bannon, who rose to prominence as the executive chairman of the alt-right website Breitbart, on the Senate floor. Jeff Merkley, R-Ore. Merkley led Democratic Sens. Ed Markey of MA and Sen. -elect Chris Van Hollen of Maryland. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., also joined on a call with reporters to criticize Trump for hiring lobbyists in his transition team after Trump pledged to "drain the swamp" and limit the influence of special interests.

Cornyn said the American people voted, and Reid's decision to "continue to disparage their choice for the next president, as well as the leadership of the House and the Senate, really just smacks of - well, we used to call people like that sore losers".

"We are going to do everything possible to hold him accountable", Sanders said.
