DACA’s Dark Day

On Tuesday most likely, President Trump will announce an end to President Obama’s DACA program. If your an ardent Trump supporter, this news probably thrills your little xenophobic heart. However, if your one of the roughly 65% of Americans that didn’t vote for Trump, its another blight & embarrassment. If your one of the Dreamers, it’s a sad end too your “American Dream”. 

  There are a great many things Trump has promised and hasn’t delivered. No Obamacare repeal anywhere in sight. His vaunted infrastructure package has yet to see the light of day. The “wall” will most likely never be built & if so, we the people will pay for it.  This however is one campaign promise the bigoted and xenophobic autocratic President will deliver on.  Not surprising or shocking for a man who just a few weeks ago defended the KKK & Nazi’s.

Spanning The Country 

Taking a quick look around the country today, we makes stops at the two newspapers of record, The New York Times & The Washington Post. Despite what you have heard from our fake President, these two papers have been getting it right for decades & more lately they have accurately hammered President Trump on his many many missteps. 

The biggest story today is North Korea boasting yet again about testing of nuclear weapons.  It has yet to be determined if these latest claims are accurate or more hubris from Kim Jong Un. One thing is certain, our lack of experience & real leadership in the White House & at the State Department. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has been grossly overmatched during the last few months with the nuclear threat from North Korea. If tweet threats counted, the U.S. would be safe & sound, however they do not.  One thing is certain, no one in this current administration with the possible exception of Defense Secretary of State James Mattis seems to have any possible solutions that go beyond basic syllables.

In other news making headlines across the country was President Trump & FLOTUS doing another photo op in Texas with victims of Hurricane Harvey.  In typical Trump fashion there was plenty of sizzle & very little steak. Trump was caught on camera asking people about the boxed meals he was passing out, bragging about the sanitary gloves not fitting his hands & thanking everyone for coming out, as if they had a choice.
