A disastrous first week for Trump

Trump's response to his detractors and supporters
At least for rational people in America and abroad.

For the Trumpettes, though, it was magical.

That's because they live in the world of "alternative facts" of Fox News and Breitbart where reality has a well-known liberal bias.

Trump issued his executive orders on ending Obamacare, building the wall with Mexico, banning refugees except Christians, expanding the military, imposing the abortion "gag rule," ending the U.S. participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership or free trade, reviving Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines and freezing federal hiring.

None were surprising and most were just the usual posturing, signifying little.

For the last eight years, Republicans called President Obama a "dictator."

Well, now that they have a real dictator, Republicans won't put up a fight. They won't even whimper. They'll grovel at his feet and wait patiently for Trump to put a collar around their necks and drag their asses around Washington.

And, they will love it.

For the past eight years, GOP lawmakers have railed against the increase in the national deficit, but will eagerly double it or triple it under Trump.

Ever since Obamacare passed, Republicans have tried to repeal it. Now that they can, they have no idea what to replace it with. All talk, no action.

Trump's first act was to make housing less affordable for millions of Americans. It was his way of giving new home buyers the middle finger.

The anti-abortion march today in Washington had Trump's full support even though Trump has likely paid for more abortions of pregnancies the he is personally responsible for than anti-abortionists could possibly imagine.

And, on the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, when the Soviets liberated Auschwitz in Poland, Trump issued his edict about banning refugees, particularly Muslims, from America. This will help ensure current and future holocausts.

At the end of Trump's first week, the level of incompetence was true to form.

Trump was more concerned with the size of the crowd at his inauguration than anything else.

And, he realized how illegitimate of a president he is because he pushed the bogus voter fraud conspiracy again. He lost the election by nearly three million votes.

Also this week, Trump managed to offend not just Mexico, but the CIA as well.

Trump sought to divide, rather than unite during the easiest week of his presidency.

Whatever happens to this country during Trump's reign, we will deserve it for putting such an asshole in the Oval Office.

In fact, Trump is not the POTUS, a wire service slugline that is now part of the vernacular.

No, he is the POSOTUS: Piece of Shit of the United States.
