Trump's naming of Bannon for a major White House post has stirred considerable unease among many American Jewish groups.
The show then played a clip of McConnell being asked about Bannon's appointment and simply avoiding the question and creating an awkward moment of silence.
Apparently, the blood of the covenant between these brothers is too thick to dilute.
"And I think that is awful for our country", Larsen said. "Steve and Reince are highly qualified leaders who worked well together on our campaign and led us to a historic victory". To make America even greater we need to embrace our diversity. "We urge you to condemn this appointment immediately and without reservation", the letter reads.
In a letter being sent to Trump, Cooper and 150 other lawmakers say Bannon has well-documented ties to the white nationalist movement.
Trump has faced a wave of criticism since appointing Bannon as his chief strategist. "That is why I strongly encourage President-elect Trump to rescind Mr. Bannon's appointment from this position".
Earlier in the day, another group of 169 Democrat Members of Congress signed and sent an additional letter to Trump himself, calling on him to rescind Bannon's appointment. Bannon is the former CEO of Breitbart News, a conservative site that has been a clearinghouse for the alt-right, a loose collection that includes elements with anti-Semitic and racist views.
"When people really understand what the alt-right is, this neo-nationalist, neo-Nazi, white supremacy idea that Bannon is pushing hard, I hope they wake up because, if not, we are racist", Beck said.
"Dear President-elect Trump: Your pick for "chief strategist, ' Stephen Bannon, has no business working in the White House", the petition starts out".
A statement announcing the letter stated the full list of signers would be revealed on Wednesday (16 November), the Globe reported. She also refused to endorse Trump after he won the Republican Party nomination for president.
"I'm the guy pushing a trillion-dollar infrastructure plan", said Bannon in the interview.
