Trump’s breathtaking!...er...

Breathtaking is the only word I can think of to describe President Donald Trump’s “accomplishments.”

Certainly our representatives, Sen. Mitch McConnell and Rep. Andy Barr, should be proud of their roles in support of the president. Several especially relevant achievements: the effective and well organized management of recent border operations ( why take on real criminals when children are so much easier targets?) ; the equally effective leadership to alleviate the tragedy in Puerto Rico; the reintroduction of mercantilism and tariffs which historically have proven so beneficial; appointments of individuals who are entitled to be compensated at levels of their own choosing; rhetoric designed to ensure bigotry, misrepresentation and anti-intellectualism remain a part of public discourse; and the embrace of those international leaders who have never considered our interests, to the exclusion of our allies.

His negotiating skills are so impressive and evident. I can hardly wait for his string of accomplishments to grow.
