President Trump tweeted today that the White House is running "perfectly" and that "I have very little time for watching TV."
Most of the president's tweets in the past two days have been retweets of stuff he saw on FOX TV (10 tweets in all) plus four comments about what he saw.
During the same 48 hours, he complained about Democrats three times, commented twice on the appropriateness of Ivanka sitting in his chair at the G20, and offered condolences to the family of Marines killed in a plane crash. He also twice claimed big wins against ISIS, says he is working hard to get the Olympics for LA, and seems to take credit for opening the beef market with China.
There is pitifully little commentary on issues of real interest to the nation. Nothing specific about health care. Nothing about DeVos's move to reneg on student loan relief for students who got ripped off by private colleges. Nothing about the opioid epidemic. Nothing about international concerns with the growing number of cholera cases. Nothing about wildfires out West. Nothing about infrastructure.
Does this man even live in the same country as me?
There is no evidence that Trump is in any way engaged with the political process except at the level of casting aspersions on his enemies and defending himself and his family from criticism.
For those who can stand it, the Fox retweets are after the break.
