I remember when Barack Obama first took office and a flurry of b.s. policy flew. It came fast, like a blizzard, and it was impossible during that time to focus on what to worry about most. Donald Trump’s decision-making in his first few days has been at least as dazzling as Obama’s, maybe more so.
The President has addressed the following issues:
- Agency communications
- Cabinet appointments
- Israel, Embassy to Jerusalem
- Federal hiring
- Federal regulations freeze
- Chicago’s crime problem
- The Wall
- Foreign abortion funding
The press is focusing on crowd-size and voter fraud and facial expressions and angry women. They’re losing the horizon.
Oh! And don’t forget TPP, discussion about NAFTA, the Keystone pipeline. It’s amazing to me that the media is focusing on anything but these issues.
