A delusional president Trump on Monday released a triumphant ‘alternative facts’ campaign commercial declaring his first 100 days in office a “major success,” and branding news media that have reported otherwise as “FAKE NEWS.”
Despite his lack of major legislative achievements, Trump claims we are “winning”. LOL!
“America has rarely seen such success,” the narrator says, listing the confirmation of Justice Neil M. Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, companies investing in jobs in the United States, the elimination of “regulations that kill American jobs” and the approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline.
“The biggest tax cut plan in history,” the voice intones, without mentioning that Mr. Trump has yet to offer any legislation — or even a set of policy prescriptions — for reordering the tax code to achieve the enormous cuts for businesses and individuals that he has endorsed.
The ad, which uses a series of stock footage available online, follows a frenetic week in which Mr. Trump, after having rejected the 100-day mark as an indicator of the success or failure of his presidency, sat for several interviews and dispatched his top advisers for virtually nonstop briefings. They all made the case that he had accomplished significant things since taking office.
The spot, however, does not mention Trump’s failed attempt to push through a health care overhaul, after having vowed that the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act would be his earliest priority. Nor is there any reference to his attempts to build a “big beautiful wall” along the southern border with Mexico, which have largely stalled.
The 30-second spot the latest example of Trump’s extraordinarily early return to politicking at a time when most presidents would be spending their time working for the American people.
Take a look at the ad, and be sure to give Trump a piece of your mind in the comments section below:
