Dear Cat Smith,
Former President George W. Bush speaks to Matt Lauer on the TODAY Show.
Trump’s first press conference was a bizarre experience. Rather than addressing the concerns of journalists and speaking frankly to the nation, Trump used his platform to lambaste the free media, whom he accused of dishonesty, bias, and even criminality. A particular low point was when he browbeat a BBC journalist over the Muslim ban. By all accounts, it was not a “presidential” display (whatever that means).
Neo-Nazi Richard Spencer is punched in the face during the inauguration protests.
The first few days of the Trump Administration have realized many of our worst fears. So far, America’s Il Duce has declared a National Day of Patriotic Devotion, revoked federal funding for pro-choice NGOs, put a financial gagging order on his own departments, archived White House pages on human rights, prosecuted journalists for covering the inauguration protests, suspended visas from many Muslim-majority nations (while bombing those same nations), started a weekly publication of crimes committed by “aliens”, and threatened to invade Chicago.
In mid-October, then-candidate Donald Trump made his first pledge to “drain the swamp” in Washington. His seemingly no-nonsense approach to corruption and Congressional sluggishness won him many favours from those disaffected by the federal government, not to mention those who are suspicious of its very existence. After decades of unwillingness to pass even basic reforms, many voters felt that the government did indeed need to be “run like a business”, another cornerstone slogan of the Trump campaign.
