Even though he’s a 70-year-old man, and in charge of the most powerful nation on Earth, Donald Trump still uses Twitter like a spoiled tween venting about being grounded because their parents were “unfair” and “mean” to them. In all my life, I’ve never seen an individual who’s more insecure, fragile, and weak than Donald Trump.
Well, Trump’s first 100 days in office have come and gone. He’s now been “Commander-in-Chief” for over 100 days, yet failed to accomplish any of the major promises he told his supporters he’d get done during the “all-important first 100 days.”
From the humiliating embarrassment of being unable to even secure a simple majority vote on Trumpcare, to the completely GOP-controlled Congress appearing to be less than eager to deal with his tax proposals or fund the border wall, Trump’s time in office has been a joke.
Keep in mind that not only has his time in office been an abject failure, but he’s also managed to reach unprecedented levels of futility when it comes to the number of Americans who approve of the job he’s doing.
Naturally, the on-going failures of the scandal-ridden Trump administration have been a major story over the last few weeks. And rightfully so considering how much of a disaster Trump has been as “Commander-in-Chief” of this country.
Seeing as he can never own up to his own incompetence, Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to whine about how the media won’t talk about all the “successes” he’s had during his first 100 days:
Mainstream (FAKE) media refuses to state our long list of achievements, including 28 legislative signings, strong borders & great optimism!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 29, 2017
In Trump’s mind, signing executive orders is somehow an “achievement.” That’s funny considering I remember “back in the day” — and by that I mean just about four months ago — Republicans called presidents who signed a lot of executive orders “unconstitutional” and “dictator-like.” Yet now we have a Republican in the White House complaining because the media won’t heap praise on the fact that he knows how to sign his name on a piece of paper.
The issue here isn’t just that Trump wasn’t able to fulfill any of the major promises he told his supporters he’d get done during his first 100 days, it’s that he’s failed to accomplish any of his bold promises despite the fact that his party controls both the House and the Senate. I could give his failures a bit of a pass if several bills had been passed through the House, yet stalled in the Senate where Democrats do have some legislative power. But that’s not the case. He hasn’t even been able to get any major piece of legislation passed with a simple majority vote in the House — which is pathetic. Hell, he’s failed twice at trying to get his Muslim/travel ban implemented.
The only thing he’s managed to do (other than embarrass the country) is sign executive orders because doing so doesn’t require any sort of actual accomplishment other than being able to sign his name. I guess for someone as incompetent as Trump, that is an “accomplishment.”
As for his claim about stronger borders and great optimism, please. He’s done almost nothing to make the borders any more secure than they were during the Obama administration and his approval rating is lower than any president in history at this point in their presidency. So I’m not sure how there’s a great deal of “optimism” in this country when the vast majority of people not only disapprove of the job he’s doing, but actually fear that he’s pushing us closer to a nuclear WWIII.
The fact that Trump’s having to whine about the media not reporting on his ability to sign his name, clearly implying that he thinks signing executive orders is some sort of an “accomplishment,” actually proves what a disaster his first 100 days in office have been. At the end of the day, what this tweet says to me is that even Donald Trump can’t name anything he’s accomplished other than signing a handful of executive orders.
