Are We Great Yet?

In In My Opinion..., Random Thoughts, Trump Apocalypse on January 22, 2017 at 9:23 am

It’s been 48 hours since The Donald took office. For those who thought that his rhetoric was just a joke, I point to his first acts as President:

  • The President reversed planned cuts to interest premiums on FHA mortgages. Those planned cuts would have reduced mortgages of eligible homeowners by approximately $500 per year. I hope none of his supporters want to own or keep their homes.
  • Whitehouse.gov has been redone: Pages on climate change, LGBT issues, civil rights, and health care, have been replaced with pages on an “America First Energy Plan,” “America First Foreign Policy,” “Bringing Back Jobs and Growth,” and “Standing Up For Our Law Enforcement Community.” I suppose this is normal for any incoming administration but it does not bode well for anyone that believes in these issues.
  • The Department of Justice “postponed” a hearing that challenged the voter ID laws in Texas. The department was scheduled to argue that the state law intentionally discriminated against Latino and African-American voters. The DOJ also delayed an initial hearing on police reform in Baltimore.
  • And of course, he signed an executive action to “minimize the economic burden” of key provisions of the Affordable Care Act pending its repeal. Of course no one knows what that means since the administration doesn’t want to explain the order.

Amid all of that action. The Donald had time to comment on the size of his inauguration crowd as it compared to Obama’s inauguration crowd (because apparently size matters). You decide:


Who do you want to believe, Trump or your lying eyes? Trumps Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, was also a little upset about the truth and decided to chastise the press about their fair reporting. He then left without taking questions. Nothing like transparency in office.

Welcome to Trumps America!
