Holy Corn Dog
A top White House official told the media to ‘keep its mouth shut’. That’s a threat. Story: HERE
US State Department’s entire senior management team quits as Secretary Rex Tillerson takes up post. Story: HERE
Tillerson and Exxon agree to $180 million severance package. Story: HERE
Do you think that the Tillerson even knows how an average person lives?
Donald Trump’s White House ‘gags’ at least three US government agencies including the EPA. Story: HERE
Yup, Emperor Trump is off to a fine start as President. Let’s silence the press, threaten agencies and those who don’t agree with him, bully Mexico ( for those who don’t do math, the trade deficit with Mexico is ~60 billion dollars but the yearly amount of trade is ~360 billion dollars. That 20% tariff, collected, by the importer and not Mexico, will raise all of Mexico’s exports to the USA by 20% plus administration fees, if Trump gets it passed through both houses. It will be the US consumer who pays for the wall, not Mexico. Or is Trump going to ban all Mexican imports if his nose gets further out of joint?) as he gets started messing up the world. Policy on the fly without any thought as to the consequences of any actions. It’s OK to obsess over the inauguration numbers and now overall voting numbers. He cannot stand the fact that he did not win the overall popular vote and that isn’t winning in his books. No facts to support these illegal voters by any agency but that’s OK, truth doesn’t matter as he BELIEVES that he’s right…somehow. A waste of time, effort and money to feed his ego.
Not bad for the first week.
History is repeating itself.
