It will take years to undo damage from Trump's 1st 100 days
It shouldn't be that hard to sum the first 100 days of Donald Trump's presidency -- but apparently it is. One appraisal this week from a writer I know and respect featured the headline that the first three-months-plus of the Trump era have been "a big yawn," while the New York Times' Gail Collins -- one of the best in the business -- wrote about "Trump's can't-do presidency," the sound and fury of a POTUS who, in the end, signifies nothing.
I beg to differ. There's quite a lot going on with Trump's presidency! Look at everything that's happened in 100 days. (OK, actually 98 -- the 100th comes Saturday with the most exciting thing to hit the Harrisburg Farm Show. The much-ballyhooed tax-reform package that turned out to be as detailed as an 8th-grader's term paper... The consequential news that the United States would pull out of the NAFTA trade agreement, which was then tossed down the memory hole. The bizarre class field trip, complete with the chartered bus, to the White House for all 100 members of the Senate, to get a completely inconsequential briefing on North Korea. The sight of the president's uniquely unqualified daughter representing the US at a major event in Germany, where she leaked to a reporter that she may run a kind of venture capital fund for women entrepreneurs -- funded by large corporations and friendly foreign governments -- out of her office in the West Wing. Then there was this real dictator move by Trump, threatening to break up the 9th Circuit of our supposedly independent judiciary because he doesn't like its rulings. Of course, he doesn't have the power to do this.
I'm sorry, did I say this was what happened in Trump's first 100 days? I meant, this is what happened on just one day of Trump, WEDNESDAY. Now multiply that by 100, and you'll start to see the method behind Trump's madness. The grifter behind Trump University and Trump Vodka is overwhelming your senses with bad information, good information, head-fakes, reversals, and on a daily basis, blatant lies...#dayofdistress
