As such, Trump is constantly in motion and moving too fast for the Democratic Party -- including the press corps -- to keep up. Now Huffington Post is crying no mas.
From Sam Stein of Huffington Post:
Just two weeks into his administration, Donald Trump’s presidency is off to a rapid pace. But even by his standards, Monday was especially frenzied.
With protests still simmering over the refugee and immigration ban he’d imposed days prior, Trump that morning mocked the Democratic leader of the Senate for shedding what he deemed “fake tears” for those affected by the ban.
That piece of mockery alone would have been enough in the past to stir a day’s outrage and news coverage. But it was followed by so much more. There were the rumblings of a constitutional crisis as customs agents reportedly disobeyed court orders to let the detained see lawyers. Trump signed another executive order dramatically curtailing regulations. His White House continued bickering with the press over his top political aide being named to the National Security Council. Jewish groups denounced his refusal to specifically mention Jews in his Holocaust Remembrance Day statement.
And then came the night. The acting attorney general announced that she would not defend Trump’s ban on grounds it may be unconstitutional. So Trump fired her, finding a replacement who would do his bidding. Then he fired the director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. And to cap the evening, he let it be known that the next day, he’d be nominating a justice to the Supreme Court. The political universe was left trying to simply catch its breath.
“There are so many fires burning in so many different places that there is sensory overload,” said David Axelrod, President Barack Obama’s longtime adviser. “There was a lot of action at the beginning of the Obama administration. But it was focused on dealing with a crisis. This is of a different nature and magnitude. I wouldn’t say an order of magnitude, because order is not necessarily part of it.”Ha ha ha.
Axelrod is now seeing the difference between a 9-to-5, golf on Wednesday, knock off early on Friday, vacation-at-will president and a man who has had to hustle for a buck since he was in his teens.
Fred Trump did not give The Donald money to start his business.
He loaned him the money. At interest.
Donald Trump did not waste his president-elect period vacation at some fat cat's mansion posing for the cover of Golf Digest.
President-elect Trump began setting up a government the day after the election.
He got Carrier, Ford, and a half-dozen other companies to reverse decisions to move to Mexico and invest billions in new factories here.
Then came Christmas.
Trump did not waste $66 million funding his campaign and give up easily a billion dollars in income over the next four years to sit on his ass basking in the warm glow of sycophantic reporters.
As president, Trump relishes the work ahead and if the whiners in the media and elsewhere in the Democratic Party cannot keep up, tough.
Washington runs at a turtle's pace.
Now the punchline: Barry couldn't keep up that pace!
Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
It covers the nomination process only. The general election is covered in a sequel, "Trump the Establishment," which will be published in paperback on Tuesday.
