Wow, Republicans sure are copacetic with Presidential Executive Orders so long as it's not a Democrat issuing them, aren't they? How many is Cheeto going to sign this week alone, do you reckon?

Let's see. So far he's frozen new federal hires and wage increases and is doing his best to send us back to 1972 on abortion; canceled planned cuts to mortgage insurance rates for FHA loan recipients; and House Republicans are trying to yank us out of the United Nations. (Someone asked me if the U.S. pulled out, would the UN building still be a thing in New York? To which I astutely responded that if Trump isn't renting it out and isn't making money off of it, he don't give a fuck about maintaining it.)

I hope wherever Obama and Hillary are, respectively, they're having good, long laughs. They deserve it.

Fortunately, the press is FINALLY getting it. The knives are out. Long, sharp, and deadly. Apparently he packed the front rows with his supporters during the CIA speech. The rank and file weren't applauding. Those were his stooges.

Yes, but is it in enough time to halt the course and help reverse it? The press, I mean.

Also, I fear they're going to be distracted by useless shit like this "alternative facts" BS. While it is concerning, it's a smokescreen for the actual REAL shit he and the GOP in Congress are going to try to pull, like this UN withdrawal and FHA mortgage insurance cuts cancellation.

Wow, I'm amazed you can be so calm about this shit. I'd be either crying or head-desking. :(

It helps to have a professional obligation to feel I need to fulfill. I can't directly affect what's going on this second, but I can keep my particular readers informed whether they want it or not (they're a conservative bunch) and try to stay on top of developments.
