Ever have a boss that wants everything done yesterday, gives impossible last minute assignments, then clocks out leaving you in the lurch? Well, everyone in America does now. Donald Trump is taking the weekend off after Friday’s Inauguration. Seriously.
“Day one – which I will consider to be Monday as opposed to Friday or Saturday. Right? I mean my day one is gonna be Monday because I don’t want to be signing and get it mixed up with lots of celebration,” Apparently micromanaging his own party is going to take a lot out of the new Leader of the Free World.
While Paul Ryan is working extra hours trying to “Repeal and Replace” the ACA within the first 100 days, and the Office of Government Ethics is still being rushed to confirm the massive load of Cabinet picks before the inauguration, Donald Trump will be spending his first two days in office…on vacation. So much for “The First Day Project,” a plan designed by the Trump administration for Trump to sign 25 executive orders, effectively negating any of President Obama’s executive orders. It seems no one consulted with Trump on what he considers “The First Day.”
Outrageous as his behavior was on the campaign trail, the expectation for the new POTUS was that he would buckle down and show some of his highly touted business skills in leading the country. He claimed that, outside of ethical concerns, he could easily manage running the country and running his businesses simultaneously. But Trump’s contempt, or worse, apathetic indifference, to the hard work of those around him will be his undoing. His actions mirror those of Caligula more than Hitler.
Foolishly, Trump has surrounded himself with Republicans who have at least denounced him once. The working class Joe’s that are currently hailing him as a Messiah can easily shout cries of “Impeach him!” instead with the handsome, predictable and oh so conservative Mike Pence standing right behind him, sadly nodding agreement.
