Trump touts administration as 'most successful' in history despite 'Witch Hunt'

Source: The Hill

BY BRETT SAMUELS - 05/17/18 10:14 AM EDT

President Trump on Thursday argued his administration has accomplished more than any other in its first 17 months, even as the cloud of a federal probe has hung over the White House for a year.




Trump often speaks of his administration in superlatives. He has on multiple occasions claimed his administration has accomplished more than any other over comparable time frames.

The Senate has confirmed appeals courts judges at a record pace in Trumpís first 17 months, putting the president on pace to have the most nominees ever approved in the first two years of a presidency.

Thursday marked one year since special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed to lead the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. His appointment was prompted by Trumpís decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey.

2. Wow. Just wow.

Trump is completely delusional. I'd hate to see all the hamsters running around inside his head. And his disciples just eat it up, don't they? It's like living in an alternative universe. Trump uses that superlative language all the time, and he uses it on trivial things. After one cabinet meeting, he was like "This is the best cabinet ever assembled by any President in the history of this country." Deep down, he must realize that he's full of shit, so he overcompensates for everything, no matter how trivial or mundane.

3. Oh how nice! Write your own report card, eh?

Why not be fair RUMP and let someone else write the report card, eh? I bet you won't like the results then...

4. Maybe if your brain is wired like the one trump seems to have

(which must be something like an eel or a snail and even then I feel like I am being unfair to eels and snails), but for the rest of the world it is the worst record and administration.

Things I rely on the government for: protecting the environment, education, infrastructure, court system. In not ONE of those areas is anything going that well, much less successful.

I would like to think that even his supporters are seeing that that "tax break" is not really going very far with prices going up on everything else. Soon, if not already, they will begin to see a change in the other things (like the folks in LA who no longer can rely on Medicaid for help with the elderly) and THEN maybe they will see that he is the worst thing to happen to the country.

6. what?

only thing this clown and his administration have accomplished faster and with more virulence and hate is to have divided all Americans along racial-cultural, superior-inferior, animals-human profiles. And we were supposed to all be americans. What bullshit. The Civil War never stopped...it went from an hot lead used war to cold war...trump is a fitting example of a culmination of a very long cold war. But not the end of the war.

9. Well, when you change the rules on court nominees, it goes better without

a way for opposition.

12. Trump is a bullshitter.

One who always wants it both ways.

Puffery got him where he is today, far beyond any competence he might have had. Without talent, all he has is self-promotion, and at the presidential level it's not sustaining him very well. Diminishing returns as his lack of achievement is getting harder to conceal.
