Embattled Trump appointee also insulted Mormons

The national stories about Donald Trumps choice of chief strategist, Steve Bannon, have focused on his website’s more extreme headlines about Jews and women:

BILL KRISTOL, REPUBLICAN SPOILER, RENEGADE JEW.

THERE'S NO HIRING BIAS AGAINST WOMEN IN TECH, THEY JUST SUCK AT INTERVIEWS.

It's understandable that the focus hasn’t been on the more subtle critique of Mormons.

For example:

NEVER TRUMP TAPS THEIR CANDIDATE: BALD UNKNOWN MORMON HILL STAFFER FROM GOLDMAN SACHS WHO ‘RESETTLED’ REFUGEES FOR U.N.

WILL THE MORMON CHURCH’S SUPPORT FOR MUSLIM IMMIGRATION BLOCK TRUMP’S VICTORY?

The LDS Church declined comment for this story, as did a number of Mormon Republican office holders.

But a Mormon Democrat has made it a goal of his last months in the U.S. Senate to get Steve Bannon fired before his job begins.

Senate Minority leader Harry Reid called for Bannon’s ouster from the Senate floor.

“As long as a champion of racial division is a step away from the Oval Office, it will be impossible to take Trump's efforts to heal our nation seriously,” said Reid.
