The First (Almost) 100 Days

Just a reminder of how weak and incompetent president #45 is. DJT has the House and Senate, and yet he's passed no legislation (thankfully), he has used only executive orders to undo what Mr. Obama accomplished in his presidency, and he's appointed a new Supreme Court justice to the seat that was stolen from President Obama's term in office.
#45's presidency, so far, has been a farce that only his most ardent fans support. Those people think the country and the rest of the world support and admire #45. The fact is a majority of Americans does not and neither does much of the civilized world.

Here is #45's promises on what he'd accomplish in his first 100 days:

Yahoo News:

The 100-day measure didn’t seem ridiculous to Trump during the campaign. 

While vying for the White House, Trump unveiled his “Contract with the American Voter,” in which he vowed to get 10 legislative measures through Congress within the first 100 days of his administration: 

Middle Class Tax Relief and Simplification Act, 
End the Offshoring Act, 
American Energy and Infrastructure Act, 
School Choice and Education Opportunity Act, 
Repeal and Replace Obamacare Act, 
Affordable Childcare and Eldercare Act, 
End Illegal Immigration Act, 
Restoring Community Safety Act, 
Restoring National Security Act and 
Clean Up Corruption in Washington Act. 

None of these have been enacted yet, but Trump has been advancing toward several of these goals through executive actions. 

The first 100 days of a new presidency have historically been high-points in a new POTUS's administration. But the only "high-point" in #45's first 100 days has been a spike in terms of people's distrust of DJT and disgust with his infantile behavior on Twitter.

Americans are on to him, and his dismal approval rating is the proof:

Trump's approval rating certainly is unpresidented.

Kevin Robbins said...

The only thing he can count as an accomplishment is the Gorsuch appointment which required no effort from Trump at all. And the only reason he has that is because the appointment was stolen from Obama. Who's sick of the winning?

Jerry,Trolls come here daily to tell me what a failure Barack Obama's presidency was, and what a magnificent president Trump is.

They're really funny little rodents.

Kevin Robbins said...

Another Trump accomplishment:

President Donald Trump on Friday said that efforts to avoid a government shutdown are “going very well.”

“Now, we have government not closing. I think we’ll be in great shape on that, it’s going very well,”

Yes, the Republicans are (likely) going to manage not to shut down government while being totally in charge of government.

BTW Shaw, that picture of the three stooges is upsetting my tummy. Someone quipped that the portrait of Clinton was the smartest one in the photo.

"Someone quipped that the portrait of Clinton was the smartest one in the photo."

The plant on the table is the second smartest.

Les Carpenter said...

DDE was pretty dann smart as well. Certainly one of, if not the most honest. Perhaps a toss up with Jimmy Carter in the honesty category.

Why do I get the impression that this administration is really the cast of a John Waters movie?

Even Waters wouldn't reach that low, Ducky. :)
