Saturday, President Trump held a rally in the ‘redneck Yankee’ state of Pennsylvania to mark his first 100 days in office, which coincided with an annual dinner of White House press, slamming the media and drawing cheers of “CNN sucks” and “USA, USA” from the majority White crowd that came to bathe their savior in mindless adoration and conservative love, many of them in those infamous red ‘Make America Great Again’ caps. A few Oreos can be seen in some photos and videos, but like a very small sprinkling of pepper in a bowl of salt. You can even see what appears to be a Latino or Filipino in one scene. Fools will be fools, what can I say?

A plan for the president to announce in Harrisburg that the United States was pulling out of the North American Free Trade Agreement fell through when Mr. Trump decided, after urgent phone calls on Wednesday from the leaders of Canada and Mexico, not to do it — at least for now.

The White House then toyed with the idea of having Mr. Trump announce that he was ripping up the Korea Free Trade Agreement. But he stole his own thunder, telling The Washington Post on Thursday that the United States might terminate the five-year-old agreement.

“It’s a horrible deal. It was a Hillary Clinton disaster, a deal that should’ve never been made,” Mr. Trump said. In fact, President George W. Bush negotiated the agreement with South Korea in 2007, and President Barack Obama renegotiated it in 2010, which is effectively what Mr. Trump is now proposing to do.


For Mr. Trump, the rally punctuated a week of frenetic, all-hands-on-deck self-promotion linked to the 100-day mark — a stocktaking milestone that he had earlier dismissed as artificial and a “ridiculous standard.”

On Friday, he taped a weekly radio address in which he declared, with a rare caveat, “I truly believe that the first 100 days of my administration has been just about the most successful in our country’s history.” He did not say which of his predecessors might have outdone him. – NY Times

Just like the Reality TV star that he was, Trump’s first 100 days in office have consisted of basically behaving like a spoiled rich brat, which he is, not really accomplishing anything, just grandstanding for his deluded fanatical followers and badmouthing anyone who doesn’t agree with or like him. I never cared for the man even during that debacle with Marla Maples back in the late 80s/early 90s, and I dislike him even more intensely now. He’s a typical older White male with condescending attitudes towards women and people of color, not surprising considering his ethnic background and the fact that he and his father were sued for racial discrimination with their housing.

On paper, Trump lacks a major legislative achievement, has the lowest approval ratings of any new commander in chief since World War II, has seen several key immigration goals held up by the courts and has failed to deliver the health care overhaul he promised again and again on the campaign trail.
Trump’s sole big win has been the successful nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court — something a president hasn’t done in his first 100 days since James Garfield appointed a justice within that time frame 136 years ago.
 

Trump, a longtime critic of the number of Obama’s executive orders, issued more executive orders in his first 100 days than any other president aside from Harry Truman.
Trump’s first 100 days have also been plagued with controversy, from appointing his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner to key White House posts to dealing with allegations of possible ties between some of his campaign aides and Russia.
His campaign promises on such major items as repealing and replacing Obamacare and overhauling the tax code — things he rallied crowds with for months all over the country — have yet to be enacted. Even his promise to build a wall on the border with Mexico has been caught up in a spending debate, with no support from Democrats and little to no progress being made. – CNN
 
The guy has not really done a damn thing, and these idiots at that rally – probably made up of blue collar workers, barely high school-educated and possibly even unemployed, cheering and waving flags and banners and placards that only reveal their quintessential middle American stupidity – goes to show you just how gullible a certain segment of the population can be when a moneybags Cult of Personality is involved. All I see is Celebrity Worship in the extreme when I view the images of Trump supporters. All I can do is shake my head. Wow. And I thought Jim Jones’ followers were crazy! I bet if Trump tells those zealots to kill in his name, they will go out and do it. They certainly believe in bearing arms.


He dismissed CNN and MSNBC as “fake news” before proudly noting that the term is now used widely. Trump decried what he again called “the totally failing New York Times,” falsely claiming that the organization was “forced to apologize” for its coverage of the 2016 election, a claim he has made before. He also took a shot at the newspaper’s headquarters, which he called an “ugly office building in a crummy location.” – Washington Post
 

Trump ended his speech with the rousing promise: “We will make America strong again, we will make American wealthy again, we will make America prosper again, we will make America safe again, we will make American great again.”

In another echo of his campaign rallies, Trump left the stage to the Rolling Stones’ You Can’t Always Get What You What. – The Guardian
That says it all, folks. You really can’t get what you want, and you’re not getting that promised wall, that repealed healthcare act, or any of the other campaign promises the Trump camp made. Now get that through your thick ass skulls, Dummköpfe.
