Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Things Trump has done since last Wednesday

Even smaller!

Seems like there should have been more Twitter rants after the health care debacle, but at least he’s accomplished these things since March 22.

• Via the Department of Homeland Security, began “naming and shaming” law enforcement departments that refuse to keep immigrants in custody long enough for ICE to get over there and pick them up. They’re listed in a web report titled “Public Safety Advisory.”

• Issued a permit for the Keystone Pipeline to be constructed.

• Graciously blamed the collapse of his health care bill on the Democrats.

• Assigned a West Wing office to his daughter, Ivanka. Though she is not going to be a paid federal employee, she says she will “voluntarily comply” with ethics laws.

• Threw Paul Ryan under the bus by directing viewers, via Twitter, to Jeanine Pirro’s Fox News show, where she tore PR a new one re the health care debacle. Both Trump and Pirro claim there was no coordination, though.

• Issued an executive order rolling back Obama’s climate-change policies. He’s hoodwinked coal miners into thinking their jobs are coming back, when it was actually natural gas that stymied the coal industry, not climate-change regulations. Oh well.

    During which Administration has the United States seen a significant increase in domestic oil production, putting the screws to OPEC and Russia because of the resulting drop in price for a barrel of oil? Anybody? Anybody?

    Don’t know why I threw that out there other than to point out that the Obama Administration was not the “end fossil fuel production” empire they are characterized as. And what Trump is doing is beyond the pale.

      Fake news!

      We’re definitely in the age of bullshit now. Motives are hidden, so what’s being said doesn’t make any sense. If we knew the real motives, we’d go, Ah, I get it: they’re helping so and so, or “deconstructing the administrative state” or whatever.

    Pop: 324,000,000 spread over 5 time zones, 50 federal states. Lax gun laws Yep! Just what you need is next to zero central government. Worked so well for the European nations back in the Middle Ages.

      Sometimes it seems like they do want to take us back to feudalism. Things were so much better then, for their class, that is.

        Mind you, if a king didn’t come up to scratch with the barons….no honourable retirement (Richard II & Edward II…pretty unpleasant exits)…and a baron couldn’t trust another baron further than he could throw him (which in armour was…..)

    And some of those unfortunate former coal miners (who voted for you-know-who) are ever so happy the health care bill failed — because without Obama’s affordable health care, they wouldn’t be able to get treatment for serious diseases caused by working in coal mines.
    I keep hoping he’ll decide the job is too much of a pain, and quit before his term ends. Or at least not run a second time.

      There’s a lot of irony about the people who voted for Trump. I think they’re going to be getting a big wake-up call along the way, when the coal mining jobs don’t come back, their health care goes away, and the economy doesn’t perform the miracles Trump has promised. Oh well — live and learn!
