In a flurry of executive orders* even the most ardent news hound finds hard to keep up with—including one banning Muslims from seven nations from coming to the U.S., sparking protests throughout the country Saturday night—President Donald Trump is remaking the world in his skewed, scary image.
And while many are rightly incensed over the #MuslimBan, Trump signed another executive order Saturday allowing White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon a seat on the National Security Council, removing the director of national intelligence and the chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The New York Daily News reports that Bannon is not listed by name in the memo, but as “chief strategist,” he can join the government’s most senior members during any meeting of the principal committee, led by National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
So the experts are out, replaced by a man who used to run Breitbart News.
Now the director of national intelligence and the chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff will attend the meetings only when “issues pertaining to their responsibilities and expertise are to be discussed,” the order states.
Of course American citizens are scared shitless by this. And many took to social media to let the dogs out under the hashtag #StopPresidentBannon, clearly concerned that a man who actually admires the devil and has very retro views of gender and race is a hair’s breadth away from the nuclear codes.
