Mongol General: Hao! Dai ye! We won again! This is good, but what is best in life?
Mongol: The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair.
Mongol General: Wrong! Conan! What is best in life?
Conan: Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women.
Mongol General: That is good! That is good.

In a sane world the idea that a new president elect would be appointing the people who helped him get elected would be no surprise and even expected, particularly after a tough campaign when a candidate had pulled off an upset.
But the world of our liberal friends is not a sane one and as I’m typing this (6:32) PM I’ve watched CNN go absolutely batshit crazy over the appointment of Stephen Bannon as Trump’s chief strategist.
Furthermore if you have a small majority in the US Senate (51 or 52 seats) it behooves you to make sure both factions of your party, the establishment and the anti-establishment are represented in your White House to make sure you can craft and advance bills that can get enough support to pass.
The cries of “racism” “sexism” “homophobia” have been unending and unrelenting, and the inability of the same people who were completely incapable of seeing what was coming electionwise to note that to recognize the attacks on Bannon and Breitbart for what they are is simply incredible.
Now part of it makes sense. CNN has a niche market which now consists pretty much of liberals, conservative who monitor what liberals say and airports thus their decision to play to said niche market is not odd.
It also explains why stories like this:
Photos taken at an anti-Trump protest in Washington, D.C., Saturday night show a man holding high above the crowd a sign that read in large black letters on a white background, “RAPE MELANIA”. Melania is the wife of President-Elect Donald Trump. The protest was held in front of the new Trump hotel that opened on Pennsylvania Avenue at the site of the Old Post Office Building.
According to the man who photographed the sign, who goes by the handle “Beck @thereal_beck”, the ‘RAPE MELANIA” sign was held aloft without any reaction by the estimated one-hundred-fifty Hillary Clinton supporters protesting the election of Trump. It was not until a lone Trump supporter waded into the protest and confronted the man that he took down the sign and fled.

Alas for CNN et/all the 60 minutes interview very much humanized Trump but given that the left has decided that protests and the derangement is worth paying for expect more of this for a very long time.
My suggestion? Point at them and laugh, a lot.
