Trump Administration: First Hundred Days and Beyond.

While travelling in the western US this past week I tried to get a balanced view of how people are thinking about Trump's presidency. No doubt I was on the western coast and there is almost zero support for the buffoon there, so I searched for opinions on the other side. The closest I could find was a radio station taking calls from no-one but military people who all opiniated that Trump was great because he will allow them to blow up Afghanis and North Koreans with impunity. Each caller was congratulated for being an American hero.

Well look at this, slimy Paul Ryan has to come out with a conscience afterall and denounce the pardon of Arpaio.

Afterall, if Arpaio can break the fourth Amendment, then everybody can, right? It is becoming all too clear that Trump is advocating for a full break down of Rule of Law in the USA.

When is someone going to impeach him?

About time that guy grew a spine.

Impeach, or otherwise remove - the only way the GOP will have a hope of retaining any amount of credibility after allowing the fiasco to happen in the first place. Ya, the DNC failed America as well, but this Trump goof is the Republican candidate.

Just read an article titled “ Winter is coming in Donald Trump’s Washington” about the soon to be realized subpoenas “on his relatives and associates” , the KKK mess and NK. . Should be an interesting few months.

In action after action, Trump appeals primarily to his dwindling base

President Trump pardoned a tough-on-immigration Arizona sheriff accused of racial profiling. He threatened a government shutdown if Congress won’t deliver border wall funding. He banned transgender people from serving in the military. And he is openly contemplating ending a program that shields from deportation young undocumented immigrants who consider the United States home.

These and other moves — all since Trump’s widely repudiated remarks about the hate-fueled violence in Charlottesville less than a month ago — are being heartily cheered by many of his core supporters. But collectively, they have helped cement an image of a president, seven months into his term, who is playing only to his political base.

<snip>

Even Trump’s detractors acknowledge that he seems to have a core group of supporters unlikely to abandon him regardless of what transpires in Washington. That in part explains Trump’s frequent travel for campaign-style rallies, said Rick Wilson, a GOP strategist and frequent Trump critic.

“There’s nothing he’s got right now except adulation from his base,” Wilson said. “He could eat a live baby on stage and they’d forgive him. He can do no wrong.”

A Monmouth University poll released last month showed about a quarter of respondents saying that not only do they approve of Trump, but that they also “cannot see Trump doing anything that would make them disapprove of him.” [and that’s the truth]

Throughout his presidency, Trump has regularly prepared for himself a veritable buffet of words he's eventually had to eat.

His latest dining experience will be an all you can eat, Chinese Buffet of words because yesterday he claimed they will halt trade with anyone who trades with North Korea, including China. Ya right. [icon_lol2.gif]

"The United States is considering, in addition to other options, stopping all trade with any country doing business with North Korea," Trump wrote in a tweet.

"The United States is considering" more like "trump is considering". When you operate outside reality, there are plenty of options to consider. Until reality sinks in that is.
