Trump’s Day In Review (2/28/2017)

Donald Trump

Busy day for 4.5; Executive orders, Address to Joint Houses of Congress, tamping down scandals. Today’s review slightly morphed into a running commentary on his speech.

Donald Trump

  1. Signed Executive Order to review and ultimately dismantle the “Clean Water Rule” designed to protect wetlands, streams, and waterways. Stock sure to rise for giant polluters that can’t wait to make our drinking water unsafe again.
  2. Signed Executive Order to move the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities from the Department of Education to the White House directly. He can now personally implement his version of Separate But Equal!
  3. Discounts persisting reports that the first raid he authorized that led to the death of a Navy Seal and several children; gathered no useful information.
  4. Starts his address to Congress by mentioning Black History Month, attacks on Jews, rejects bigotry, embraces unity. Makes a note to self to send Steve Bannon flowers and will later promise to make it up to him in racist policies, voter suppression and a Muslim ban.
  5. Went in with “America First” and “Make America Great Again.”Took credit for companies investing in America and creating jobs that were planned before the election. Drew laughter from comments about “draining the swamp” while his very swampish cabinet looked on. Suggested “coal miners’ would be great again. Promises to “build the wall.” Says nothing about Mexico paying for it.
  6. Rare appearance noted of Rex Tillerson who hasn’t had a press conference since his appointment.
  7. Somebody get Trump better fitting dentures!
  8. Promises to destroy ISIS, intends to rely on “all our friends in the Muslim world,” obviously forgetting he has no friends in the Muslim world. Only a few remaining business partners.
  9. Blames Obama for the mess he inherited. Criticizes debt racked up in the last eight years. Also forgetting his proposals including a $21 Billion wall, dramatically increasing the military, overhauling the Nuclear Arsenal, huge infrastructure investment and tax reductions for corporations and the rich will totally blow the budget.
  10. Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan having WTF moments as Trump starts babbling about merit based immigration system.Ryan relaxes when he realizes nobody knows what Trump is talking about. Even Trump. He’ll go back to writing all the plans Trump proposes that don’t exist. Proposes a trillion dollar infrastructure bill. Promises to “repeal and replace Obamacare.” Talks about the false promises made and goes on to make super false promises.Wants to keep coverage for those with pre-existing conditions with easy transition. Promises tax credits, state resources for Medicaid, reduce price of drugs, purchase health insurance across state lines. Note: All Congressional members in the tank for the Pharmaceutical Industry clapping slowly.
  11. Promises accessible child care and paid family leave. Promises clean water and air on the day he signed an Executive Order to reverse the Clean Water Rule.” Promises help in fighting rare diseases, highlighting a guest with an affliction. Makes note to self not to mock her until alone.
  12. Promotes Charter Schools as a blessing for Inner-City youth. Part of his master plan to “Make Segregation Great Again!”Glides over his plans to flood the cities with additional police while freeing them from the burden of Federal supervision as Jeff Sessions recently promised the nations Attorney Generals.
  13. Goes all in on illegal immigration by creating a new organization to funnel McCarthy like hatred against immigrants. Justifying his mass deportation which is already underway which of course his administration denies.
  14. Claims about the great amount of information obtained in raid where a Navy Seal and several children died. Fighting back against reports saying the information gained was old and useless.
  15. Comes close to accurately quoting John 15:13 from the bible.As it’s not horseshoes or hand grenades he gets no credit. Takes a roundabout way of saying we won’t be accepting many more refugees. Rambles about a more peaceful world. Tries to speak of dreams and hope. Words seemingly getting stuck in his dentures.
  16. Throws shade on different religions who worship a God of another name. Draws laughter by saying, “The time of trivial fights is behind us.” This from the king of trivial fights. When the speech was over. Republicans stood and cheered. Democrats headed for the exits. Trump cheered himself.

  1. Your running commentary was reflective of the fact that he and his advisors try to convince some American’s that if they say it is so, it must be so. I just don’t understand how anyone can’t see this every time he opens his mouth. Am I missing the neuron in my brain that accepts BS?
