I'm not super surprised by the appointments of Priebus or Gannon, but both give me some concerns about the direction this administration is going.

If you are going to drain the Swamp, end the corruption and to as out the establishment how does appointing Priebua, Mr establishment himself, do that?

As for Bannon, that guy makes Karl Rove look tame. He is the alt right spokesman. Got to keep an eye on him.

Side note: Can we now consider Brietbart State controlled media?

Establishment or not, Rince Penis deserves much of the credit for putting the republicans where they are today. He's a superb organizer. Maybe it's a pick to placate the establishment republicans. Don't know anything about the other guy. Anyway, it's Trump's administration and he gets to pick who he wants.

I would like to see more Internet links for these citations of opinion.

I heard about Reince (Reinhold).

Nothing about anyone else yet.

I don't disagree. It just seems an odd move if you're expecting anti establishment.

You have it completely backwards.

Karl Rove was a big spender, a socialist, which is why W was a big spender who socialized senior drugs and spent this country off a cliff.

Bannon is a fiscal conservative. Start there....

It's probably a wise move on Trump's part to put people in place who know how to get things done. Don't know if there are any good organizers and functionaries among the "burn down the establishment" tea party types.

It's not the fiscal policy that has me concerned. It's the "I'm going to use the full power of government to destroy people who disagree with me" policy he has that I'm a bit more skeptical of.

If all he uses his power for is balancing the budget and other conservative agenda issues. He'll have my 100% support
