Once upon a time in the United States, less than three years ago, the Executive Branch head – the President of the United States – used press releases and official means of communications for real things affecting our nation. Then “President” Donald Trump came to occupy the White House. He typically uses Twitter for the crap sandwiches he gives to the masses. Yesterday, with nothing better to do than watch television (along with any day ending with the letter “y”), he took to his favorite mode of looking like a buffoon.
Trump’s tweet last night was about his nemesis, Nancy Pelosi. He tweeted: “Such a “puff piece” on Nancy Pelosi by @60minutes, yet her leadership has passed no meaningful Legislation. All they do is Investigate, as it turns out, crimes that they instigated & committed. The Mueller No Collusion decision wasn’t even discussed-and she was a disaster at W.H.”
Donald Trump needs to stop watching the television set and research what Nemesis Nancy has accomplished. As Speaker, her achievements on the legislative front include the Affordable Care Act, Dodd-Frank, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, the Economic Stimulus Act of 2008, and the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. That is just a short list. Paul Ryan’s list: he passed a tax cut bill for the wealthy in 2017.
In addition, various major media reports are saying that the Trump team is very troubled after being briefed about what’s in the Mueller Report about obstruction. Donald Trump is delusional as usual and his tweets over the last several days suggest a man who knows, as the New York Times’ Maggie Haberman noted this weekend, that something big is about to drop on Trump soon. His latest tweet about Nemesis Nancy is the latest proof he is running scared.
