The equivalent of this would have been if Obama had named Michael Kinsley to the NSC. I would bet the right would have gone ballistic if that would have happened.

And just so that everyone knows, I would have been as against that as I am Bannon being named. The media should not be advising the president, they should be reporting on him.

It's looking like Steve Bannen is becoming the 2nd most powerful/influential person in the country  (next to Trump).  Those familiar with Breitbart who are not solidly to the right have every reason to be worried.  I had thought it hyperbole in November and December when left-leaners were warning Armageddon is on the horizon.  I still consider that to be hyperbole,  but to be afraid is legit in my opinion.

It might still be hyperbole, but now that we have seen a disastrous first 6 days in office, are you willing to take that chance?

20 months from now it will be September, 2018 and the mid-term campaigns will be well underway.  Given how typically enamored voters are with their own district's members of Congress, I am dubious of the Dems chances to make the kind of statement needed to send a message that will be heard by this president and his advisors.   Sadly, the nation will need to be in free fall for an anti-Trump mandate to occur in 2018,   

I believe Trump has not yet lost any of his supporters in this first week, but with each unsettling turn of events, the country will become less secure and more dangerously divided.   I don't think it's completely clear yet where this is heading.  But increasing Bannen's power is a worrisome sign in my opinion.

Huh?

You actually think Trump will be impeached?  Really?  That is rather far fetched IMHO.  Like it or not, Trump has a lot of support for what he is doing right now.

The media should not be advising the president, they should be reporting on him.

Agreed.  I'm not particularly pleased with most all of Trump's appointees.  For myriad reasons, one of them being the highly questionable character of many of his inner circle.

Trump could have included Bannon if he had wanted, since he's the senior adviser to Trump.

The big change is that the Chair of the Joint Chiefs was taken off the Council? Why?

Dems generally underperform in off year elections.  The Dems are likely to lose several Senate seats.

Democrats are as angy/afraid as ever, I think that will energize the base and you will see a much better showing at the mid terms.

I've read speculation that Trump is unwilling to listen to other government offices. That homeland security wasn't consulted on the Muslim ban and that the 10 senior state department members that quit were due to him not listening to them on the ban.

I assume that he elevated Bannon and removed the others because Bannon agreed with Trump and those guys didn't.

Trump is going to need to be stopped, and it's going to need to be by the republicans. I hope that enough of them display the gumption and values that the republican party was built on.

I put something like that idea in other trump thread.  We as Americans NEED NEED republicans to stand up and use common sense (aaaah Thomas Paine we could use you).  Don't follow lines because Trump is pretending to be a republican.  "Now more than ever" , we need mccain, romney and others to voice their opinion.
