“President Action”? Puhleez

Here’s a nice presentation by the NY Times of the difference between puffery and reality (my bold).

Kellyanne Conway, the president’s counselor, called him “President Action, President Impact, Donald J. Trump.”

In a round-robin of Sunday show interviews, Stephen Miller, Mr. Trump’s policy adviser, maintained that the president had accomplished more in his first month than most of his predecessors had in their entire administrations.

In reality, most of Mr. Trump’s executive actions have had no more effect on actual policy than news releases. And his nail-in-the-coffin order on the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal came well after the agreement had been put on life support by labor protests and liberal opposition.

This is not to say that he isn’t doing his best to make a mess of the country. But “President Action, President Impact”???

Look, up in the sky. It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s the sociopathic ego of “President” So Sad. And he’s wearing his underpants on the outside, because that’s the way “strong men” in the circus decided to act over 100 years ago.
