in Really?, Trump presidency

 Vive la France

The President stood next to Vladamir Putin and accused Russia of spreading “fake news” and “propaganda” during the presidential election. Adding that RT and Sputnik were “organs of influence and propaganda” and “behaved like structures of the government”. It’s too bad for America that the President was France’s Emmanuel Macron.  And I guarantee that Putin now has a lot more respect for him than he does Trump.

Macron even shows how to do the handshake correctly

Bad boss.

Sean Spicer is a devout Catholic who was excited at the prospect of meeting the Pope. When the day came his name wasn’t on the list and Spicer dreams were squashed. And that’s how Trump rolls. His apologists explain that Trump is just a kidder. His team is just one big family. And that his demeaning of inferiors is just to motivate them to achieve more.

That’s crap. You may well tease family. And Steve Jobs showed what could be achieved by demeaning people. But you don’t do it in public – as Trump loves to do.

Obama derangement syndrome.

Reports have it that Trump will reverse Obama’s policies toward Cuba. A certain amount of antipathy to political opponents is understandable. But Republicans seem so addled by ‘Obama derangement syndrome’ that if Obama had come out pro gravity, they would be against it.

In fairness, Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) is also pushing the Cuba reversal. Although it should be noted that Menedez was charged with – and face trial on – 14 counts of financial misdealing by Obama’s DOJ.

Healthcare on hold.

Lost in the excitement of Trump’s “Insult our Allies” tour – and drowned out by the ongoing revelations of the Russian brouhaha – is the fact that Washington is a government town and there’s governing to be done. In particular, the Republican plan to strip million of healthcare – which is now in the Senate’s court.

Mitch McConnell has dismissed the House version and shows no passion for a Senate version. “I don’t know how we get to 50 [votes] at the moment. But that’s the goal. And exactly what the composition of that [bill] is I’m not going to speculate about because it serves no purpose.” If I were a betting man, I would wager that Mitch has quit on Trumpcare and is eyeing tax ‘reform’ and deregulation longingly.
