Michael Savage: Reince Priebus 'Is The Evil Within'

Reince Priebus, Donald Trump’s newly named chief of staff, is “the evil within,” according to some conservatives who oppose the Republican establishment.

Newsmax reported that talk-show host Michael Savage, who supported the GOP nominee’s White House bid, suggested that someone other than the Republican National Committee chairman should get the high-ranking position in Trump’s administration.

“He is the RNC, everything the voters rejected,” Savage told the alt-right website Breitbart News. “He will steer Trump away from every policy we sent him to D.C. to change He is the enemy within. He is (House Speaker Paul) Ryan, (Senate Majority Leader Mitch) McConnell and the Old Guard. They do not want change. Out with the old, in with the new.”

Newsmax noted that Priebus and Ryan are among the mainstream Republican leaders that conservatives like Savage dislike. In 2012, after GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney lost the election to President Obama, Ryan coordinated the party’s “autopsy” of its loss. One of the conclusions was that Republican candidates needed to exploit the immigration issue to appeal to more voters.

Trump, during his campaign, pledged to build a wall along the Mexican border. The real-estate tycoon also called for deporting all of the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living illegally in the United States. He inflamed racial hatred by accusing migrants from Mexico of being “killers” and “rapists.”
