In yet another incident that America has become all too familiar with, Donald Trump put his stupidity and ignorance on full display for all to see, proving that our current POTUS still has no idea how being president or the government actually works.
Earlier today, Trump held his first full cabinet meeting – and it was an absolute disaster. Desperate for a win to beef up his plummeting, historically low approval rating, Trump claimed that he had passed more legislation than any of his predecessors – because he believes that executive orders (which he has signed tons of) are legislation. Trump bragged to everyone in the meeting:
“I will say that, never has there been a president, with few exceptions, in the case of FDR, he had a major depression to handle, who’s passed more legislation, who’s done more things than what we’ve done between the executive orders and the job-killing regulations that have been terminated, many bills I guess over 34 bills in Congress signed., Supreme Court justice who’s going to be a great one, and many other things we’ve achieved tremendous success with, and I think we’ve been about as active as you can be at just about a record-setting pace.”
I would love to know how anyone in that room kept a straight face as he was saying this. Clearly, Trump has no idea that his executive orders do not actually count as legislation. Trump hasn’t had anything get through Congress, and the GOP is now desperate for some legislative wins, which Trump seems incapable of delivering.
If there was ever a moment where Trump proved that he is 100% unfit for office, this was definitely one of them. Poor Trump will be heartbroken when he finds out that his executive orders can all be undone by a future, more competent Democratic president – and they will.
