Sarah Palin is the Only One Still Delusional After 100 Days of Trump

In a speech on the hallowed ground of Gettysburg, Pa. just 18 days before his surprise victory, Trump gave one of the most important speeches of his campaign. He announced his 100-day action plan.  He made a list of 28 campaign promises, that was “a contract between Donald J. Trump and the American voter.”  At the time, his campaign called it “a game-changing plan for his first 100 days in office.” 100 days has passed. Trump breached the contract.

 

The New York Times:  “It’s the least successful first 100 days since the concept existed.”

 

Politico points out:  “So far, though, 532 of the 554 key jobs requiring Senate confirmation are still empty—and Trump has not even nominated a candidate for 508 of them. In general, the story of his first 100 days has been a words story, not a deeds story, ... So far he’s been a showhorse, not a workhorse, and in Washington, showhorses often struggle to produce lasting change.

 

CNN has focused on national security concerns.  CNN reported that ” the damage is already done. “Our foreign policy used to be built on principles, the international trading order, international law, the security framework,” she said. “When you shake those foundations, no one can rely on anything.”
Those alliances are like a vase,” … “Once broken, you can glue it back together, but it’s never as strong as it once was.
USA Today reports:

Now that Trump is nearing that 100-day benchmark, though, he’s calling it “a ridiculous standard” to measure a president’s accomplishments.

Perhaps that’s because the scope of his 100-day plan was enormously broad, covering a constitutional amendment, regulations, trade, tax reform, health care and the military. And the timeframe was ambitious: He promised to take executive action on the first 18 points of his 100-day contract on the very first day.

Spoiler alert: He didn’t.

He’s also 0 for 10 on his promises to achieve his goals through legislation. Only one — a health insurance rewrite — has even been introduced, and that fell apart as Trump couldn’t get the support of House conservatives.

 

The BBC reports:

“What has become clear since Donald Trump delivered his inaugural address is that he has changed the presidency more than the presidency has changed him.

The vocabulary of President Trump, if not all his policies, is much the same as that of candidate Trump. To the White House he has brought the same aggression and plain-speaking that characterised his insurgent campaign.

Social media remains his favoured conduit with the American people. Twitter is to Trump what television was to JFK and radio was to FDR. But it is his means of expression, more than the utilisation of a new medium, that marks such a break from the past.”

Turf battles between hardline figures like Steve Bannon and moderates like Jared Kushner also belie Trump’s boast that it is a “fine-tuned machine”. David Brooks, a conservative columnist for the New York Times, has labelled it “a golden age of malfunction”.
One hundred days into a presidency the like of which this country has never seen before, the state of the union is disunion.

Clearly, the vast majority of news agencies has graded the Trump first 100 days as a total and complete disaster.  Sarah Palin, the astute political annalist that she is, has given her take on the first 100 days.

“I’m extremely pleased, of course, that our new president is in there building the team that he believes he needs in order to fulfill promises to the American electorate, to make America great again, and I’m very, very happy that he’s there,” said Palin.

 She said she found the idea of giving a simplistic letter grade to the Trump administration annoying, preferring to say President Trump is doing “very well.
Perhaps her remarks represent  pay back for a free dinner with Trump and friends, and the fact that Donald and Ivanka have promised to help Palin find some cheap  Chinese labor to manufacture her new line of Tableshirts.

  3. Malia – After she endorsed Trump, he implied he might appoint her to his cabinet, but he didn’t. She stopped by the WH for dinner thinking she is still relevant and brought along two D list musicians for the free meal! I don’t think Trump gives a hoot about her but Sarah is too dumb to realize it so she continues to throw him praise hoping Trump might throw a job her way! LOL

  4. I’m confused. Trump came up with the 100 Day contract. Now he says he doesn’t know who set this phony deadline. More internal chaos. Get the Justice Dept. and FBI and find out who issued that 100 Day contract.

    Anything to distract from the Russian treason issue.
