Trump: The First 365 Days - Excerpts

The True Meaning of Covfefe (Figured Out)

"...Trump’s most tumultuous and most recent tweet seems to corroborate the media’s story that the president is now under investigation for possible obstruction of justice, a claim that while the president’s tweets supported, his legal counsel, Jay Sekulow, flatly denies. On June 14th a man with a rifle opened fire on a group of Republican congressmen practicing for an upcoming charity baseball game. Four wounded including Stephen Scalise who continues to fight for his life. The gunman dead.


Perhaps this new word is simply all these things at once, an all encompassing, multi-faceted snap shot, clearly a manifestation of these uncertain times. A word that goes well beyond the exasperation of splattered spaghetti sauce and a ruined dinner date. Covfefe, my friends. Sigh. Covfefe."

Planet of the Tapes

"...I knew there were no tapes. Most people knew, but we played along. It was a news byte, tension, suspense, intrigue, all the hallmarks of a good television show or film. Wait! Trump is now president, this isn’t either of those. Then why the charade?

What may be good marketing in private industry is unconscionable form for the president of the United States. Yes, to Trump honesty and integrity while in the Oval Office seems to simply be hashtags which he refuses to use for even the most simple of responses.

The White House has fallen behind in their obligation to nominate candidates for almost 415 key administration positions. The president has limited interviews to only his favorite people, he’s even limited televised press briefings (earlier in the week reporters were not allowed live video or audio during the afternoon White House press briefing). In the meantime, Putin locks his hands behind his head, both feet firmly relaxing on his desk overlooking the chaos in which the United States has been left. Sadly, the White House has turned into the Mad House.

No tapes, no transparency, no end in sight."

Free Speech, Intolerance, and Violence in the Age of Trump

“If you see someone ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them, would you seriously?”

“I’d like to punch him in the face, I tell ya.”

​“Get 'em out of here.”

​"Try not to hurt him. If you do, I’ll defend you in court, don’t worry about it.”

“In the good old days, this doesn’t happen because they used to treat them very, very rough. And when they protested once, they would not do it again so easily. We’ve become weak, we’ve become weak.”

"...Trump has made himself out to be the tough guy president, the old school uncle who never believed in “sparing the rod and spoiling the child.” As Press Secretary Sarah Sanders once boasted: “…the people of this country didn't elect somebody to be weak. They elected somebody to be strong, and when he gets hit, he's going to hit back.” Striking out at people because they are different or maintain an opposing worldview is not a sign of strength, although American's tolerance for difference is. A tolerance that continues to erode."
