We already know Donald Trump absolutely does not want to live in Washington, DC — but he just made his HUGE first move towards governing there.

On Sunday afternoon, just hours before his major interview with 60 Minutes is set to hit airwaves, The Donald announced his Chief of Staff for the White House.

It's a familiar name, too: Reince Priebus.

That's right, the chairman of the Republican National Committee — who at times had a strained relationship with The Donald on the campaign trail, and yet was ultimately loyal to the President-elect — is set to be White House Chief of Staff in Trump's administration.

In and of itself, that's the first really BIG thing done by Trump ahead of his January inauguration. Beyond that, it's a signal to his aggressive base that Trump might be ALREADY going against their wishes!!

See, The Donald chose Priebus — an "establishment" guy — for Chief of Staff ahead of Stephen Bannon, the outsider Breitbart News chief who ran Trump's campaign!

Bannon, far more favored by Trump's voters than Priebus, was still given a position in the new administration, though, as "chief strategist and senior counselor" in the White House, according to the New York Times.

Bannon was nice about it in a statement, saying:

"[Priebus and I] had a very successful partnership on the campaign, one that led to victory. We will have that same partnership in working to help President-elect Trump achieve his agenda."

OK… But it's not Chief of Staff!

And maybe, just maybe, this is why Bannon wasn't named Chief of Staff (below):

WHAT?! THIS person is going to be working in the White House?!

Oh come on!!!

And yet the fact that Trump IMMEDIATELY turned back to an establishment pick like Priebus just days after getting elected ought to make his base… mad.

We've said it before and we'll say it again, it's going to be a long four years
