Of the butthurt comments following Donald Trump’s victory, Michelle Obama’s had to have been my favorite. “We are feeling what not having hope feels like” she told Oprah.
I couldn’t help but laugh, because that’s exactly how EVERYONE besides them has felt for the past eight years! Obama’s legacy is a painful one, with a disastrous record on the economy, foreign policy, criminal justice, and countless others. Hillary Clinton promised that she’d preserve and continue Obama’s legacy if elected President – and the American people voted to reject that.
With a legacy like Obama’s, Trump is bound to leave behind a legacy of his own as America’s turnaround CEO. Obama complains about the problems he “inherited” from George W. Bush, but those are nothing in comparison to the ones that Trump is inheriting from Obama.
As for Trump’s agenda on day one, as the Conservative Tribune reported:
What can be done with a pen and a phone can be undone with a pen and a phone — which is a lesson Barack Obama is going to learn on Jan. 20, courtesy of Donald Trump.
In an interview on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday, Sean Spicer, Trump’s future White House press secretary, said that the president-elect planned to “repeal a lot” of Obama executive actions on day one in office,
In the interview with ABC’s Jonathan Karl, Spicer also said Trump would also be hard at work from day one on to change the culture of Washington.
Speaking of hard work, Trump won’t be taking a salary as President – or any vacations. The man has said many years ago that he considers taking vacations to be a waste of time for any businessman working towards his goals, and his attitude towards the Presidency is the same.
The response came to a Karl question asking about the “one big thing we are going to see after (Trump) takes the oath of office.”
“It’s going to be not one big thing; it’s going to be many big things,” Spicer said. “On day one, he’s going to sign a series of executive orders to do two things. One is repeal a lot of the regulations and actions that have been taken by this administration over the last eight years that have hampered both economic growth and job creation.
“And then secondly, do the same on a forward-thinking thing. He’s going to start implementing things. He’s going to bring a new brand to Washington. He’s going to institute a lobbying ban, five years. It’s very forward thinking,” he added.
Spicer also vigorously defended Trump’s use of Twitter. “You know, with all due respect, I think it freaks the mainstream media out that he has this following of over 45-plus million people that follow him on social media, that he can have a direct conversation,” Spicer said. “He doesn’t have to have it funneled through the media.”
Touche. Hillary Clinton needed a team of a dozen people to manage her Twitter. If that’s how many people she needed to run a freaking Twitter account, how large of a time would she need to run the country?
