The First 100 Days

Whew! 100 days.  Seems like a 1,000.  After having the largest crowd ever for the inauguration, now he’s gotten the most done in the first 100 days ever.  Even though he doesn’t think the first 100 days are important (now).  Okay, he got a SCOTUS pick.  And signed a bunch of executive orders, including a travel ban and things that will be awful for the environment.  He’s watched a lot of TV — Fox and Friends is his favorite — and played a lot of golf.  He’s got some other accomplishments.  There’s the botched raid in Yemen.  Firing Flynn.  Being investigated by the FBI, Senate and House.  Dropped bombs on Syrian airport that did nothing.  Some of the things he promised to get done in the first 100 days were “the wall,” tax reform and repeal and replace Obamacare.  Turns out he found out the job’s harder than he thought.  He misses his old life.  Well Mr. President, your supporters would be let down if you decided to quit and go back to your old life, but you’re 70 and life is short.  If you want to go back to your old life, we’ll understand.

  1. The only silver lining in this Trump crowd is just how incompetent he and his team is, lets hope that doesn’t change!

  2. tempebev

    I’m waiting for the last 100 days before he’s gone.

    [one] Call Congress today, even critters who are not your own. It takes very little time and will make you feel powerful, particularly if you get a human who answers the phone. (Call the district offices, best chance there.)

    The League of Women Voters put out this alert today:

    Call your Representative at 866-426-2631 and tell them to reject repeal and #ProtectOurCare: Stop trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act!

    The House of Representatives wants to vote on this new plan this week. We can’t let this happen! If it passes:

    ** 24 million Americans will lose coverage by 2020
    ** Costs will increase for seniors and those with pre-existing conditions
    ** Women will go back to paying more than men for basic care
    ** Women will lose access to safe abortion care and see increases in costs for birth control
    ** Medicaid patients – including millions of children, seniors and people with disabilities – will no longer be able to get the care they need

    [two] I want to see criminal indictments and actual prison time for the people who colluded and stole our election. On the national level, and on the state level. Make those motherfuckers pay.

    Also: no tax legislation before we see Trump’s tax returns. Even then, I hope they don’t make any progress until we have a better Congress. The great majority of Republicans are either blinded by ideology or dirty and corrupt and not looking out for the average American citizen.

    At this point, I don’t really care if I see Trumps tax returns. I already feel he is dishonest and doesn’t really care about the American people or how the government runs. He is used to getting things his own way and doesn’t seem open to alternatives. He doesn’t care about people who would lose their medicaid. He just doesn’t care about anything except himself and making money. There will be no progress – thank goodness he’s not getting everything he wants from Congress. Now that he’s pushing for a government shutdown in October, it will be interesting to see if it really happens or will Congress stand up to him again. The 2018 elections will be interesting or disastrous. I’m hoping for interesting and productive.

      I hope trump (or pence or ryan) don’t make it to 2018. I do hope the Dems take back the House and Senate in 2018.

  5. dnd

    I heard today that CNN reported that the FBI found that the Russians hacked the vendor of the Florida voting machines.

  6. tempebev

    FBI director C is investigating if info was leaked to Giuliani. That would be so great if he got caught. He has a very big mouth and I’d love to see it shut.

    Also, it seems the Reps are going to vote on Healthcare again on Thursday. If it passes with Medicaid and ACA things cut, I’m pretty sure some of the Reps can kiss their ass goodbye for 2018. (I’m crossing my fingers and toes that Dems retake Congress.)

    UPDATE: April the Giraffe and Taj (baby) on being streamed on Tuesday afternoons. I watched and realized that I’m over my obsession. Time for something new.

  7. dog's eye view

    Bev: happy to hear of your recovery from giraffegestationaddiction.

    And I would love to see Giuliani, his confederates, and all the hard-right whack jobs in the NYC FBI office perp walked. By NY State prosecutors, if need be, since Jefferson Beauregard Sessions would just bat this away.

    I want to see prison time, losing government pensions, and lots of restitution. These jackholes stole an election and no doubt have been complicit in killing and injuring people who will fare worse with our Narcissist in Chief installed in the Oval Office.

    I am not for the death penalty, but I would absolutely accept it for mass-scale treason. Actions have consequences.

  8. In Florida, doing the family thing, the drive took more out of me than I thought it would, wish I could go home, it’s all so weird.

  9. tempebev

    dog: Thanks for the recovery thoughts. It wasn’t hard at all. Now I’m watching reruns of “ER.” Much better than today’s medical shows.

  10. All the tests are in, I’m not a candidate for targeted therapy, can’t catch a break here, chemo starts next week.

  11. dnd

    Repubs in the House narrowly pass trump(don’t)care. They can kiss their jobs goodbye.

  12. tempebev

    Brian – So sorry about the test results. Keep us informed on how things are going. Enjoy the rest of your vacation – great pictures on FB.

  13. dnd

    Feliz Cinco de Mayo todo! I wonder if trumps having a trump tower taco bowl?

  14. dnd

    Looking at all those smirking Republicans yesterday I wonder how many of them are on Medicare? I wonder what trump thinks of his government supplied health care?

  15. tempebev

    Probably most are on Medicare since grumpy old men make most of the rules about women. However, there are many who are not old enough for Medicare and are not employed except by the Gov. Does the Gov provide extra=special insurance for those or are they on Medicaid. Since they passed the stupid bill that cuts Medicaid, they must be super-specially insured. I think the Senate will cover their asses a little better than the House. Incase you didn’t see, it was 108º here yesterday.

  16. dnd

    Yikes, 108? It was 80 here. Pretty warm for this time of year.
    I heard that Medicaid covers more people than Medicare, including the indigent in nursing homes. My mom was in a nursing home, and while not on Medicaid, many, many there were. If we can’t provide those folks with decent care, it says something awful about us.
    We need to have universal coverage like all of our competitors do. That’d be way better than a tax cut for business.

  17. Lets not lose sight of something, Obamacare has set a minimum standard for what we now expect as a nation in terms of of access to healthcare. We have won this war. Now lets hope that what comes out of the Senate is crafted by a bi-partisan mix of senators so we can avoid this healthcare battle every 4/8 years.

  18. Heading home today, this has been a very hard trip, on every level, eager to return to the comfort of my own place.

  19. dog's eye view

    Best to you Brian. Let us know when you arrive safely. Or maybe Triton can take to twitter.

  20. Am I the only one who didn’t know Joe and Mika are a couple and are soon getting married?

    • dnd

      Haven’t checked this out on Snopes, but it seems like a foolish career move. But it it cancels that dreadful program, I hope so.

      BTW, Mika’s dad called Joe “stunningly superficial.”

  21. dog's eye view

    You may have been. It would be blissful to not even know who Joe and Mika are. At least they seem too old to spawn.

  22. dnd

    Macron wins! Viva la France! Viva la revilocion!

  23. tempebev

    Yeah for France. Boo for America. Trump is already campaigning for his 2020 re-election. It’s almost barf time.

  24. dnd

    Sally Yates sure made Ted Cruz look like the jerk he is.

  25. Trump just fired James Comey

  26. I go for chemo eduction this coming Thursday, my first chemo session is scheduled for next Tuesday.

    • dnd

      How was chemo class?

      • Had to reschedule, today was not a good day, spent most of it asleep, I was taken off prednisone at the beginning of this week in prep for chemo and i had some really serious breathing issues today. I’ve resumed the prednisone and am starting to feel better, I’ll just have to be monitored very closely for early signs of infection, I got my first Xegeva injection this week, those will be monthly, they are going to strengthen my bones and help fight the bone “mets”.

        I do have some good news to report (bout fucking time), got the final pathology report today and I will be Keytruda instead of standard chemo, this is a good thing!
        https://www.keytruda.com/non-small-cell-lung-cancer/

  27. Fasten our seatbelts. And viva Brian, with some good chemo. Wish I could be closer and bring soup and snacks over.

  28. Today is Friday afternoon. Any guesses on a news dump? Also: who here thinks Trump will be in office by the midterms? I think he will be out sometime this year, or within a year from now. Maybe optimistic, but he’s unraveling and I cannot believe the FBI is not loaded for bear to investigate him. What do you guys think?

    And set your clocks for SNL tomorrow night.

  29. Who the fuck does this asshole think he is threatening anyone with “tapes”, this is getting out of hand.

  30. tempebev

    And we thought it couldn’t get any worse. I’m not going to say that anymore. It can and it always does with this idiot and his administration.

  31. Happy Mother’s Day one and all!!

  32. tempebev

    It was a good one!

  33. I didn’t realize Steve had become a jockey!

  34. tempebev

    It got worse

  35. tempebev

    McMaster’s explanation and defense of Trump points out how stupid and uninformed T really is and he doesn’t give a damn.

  36. dnd

    So now it turns out the intel source was Israel. Gonna make for an awkward meeting with Bebe.

  37. tempebev

    What an idiot.

  38. Does anyone think there are tapes? I don’t.

  39. tempebev

    I’m running out of adjectives

  40. Well with the Robert Mueller news, I might actually have chance of out living the Trump Administration

  41. Hang in there, Brian. It’s probably hard to think positive, but try, try, try. How are things going? How is he chemo going? How is that cute dog? Keep us informed.

    • Being realistic does not mean I’m lacking in positivity the data is not on my side, I’m making peace with that and part of that process is being able to crack wise about it. Triton is quite wonderful, he’s always by my side. The Keytruda has very little side effects, the goal of Keytruda is not to cure but to is extend life and improve the quality of time left.

  42. Dog's eye view

    We all outlived Roger Ailes. Rot in hell. Your life would have served us better if it ended 40 years previously. Few will miss you.

  43. dnd

    It’s May 18th. It’s snowing here. A lot. Not suppose to let up until Saturday.

  44. Whoa. Denver weather. I remember visiting a few years ago; maybe 3 inches of snow for Mother’s Day morning, and all gone by midafternoon. Sunnier and warm. Denver’s a place of its own.

  45. We’re getting cooler weather for a few days because of your storm. This weekend the triple digits begin again, probably until Sept-Oct. I guess having a pool is nice, but the water goes with the outside temp. Unless you have a pool heater, the swimming season is not as long as you would think. Of course, kids son’t seem to care if the water is freezing or warm. Just as long as it’s wet.

    Wonder what breaking news we’ll have this weekend?

  46. The Simpsons got it right (first 100 days).

    And now he’s taking it international. Will no one rid us of this ridiculous man? (And clean out the GOP congressional/Senate leadership, while “one” is up to it.)

  47. The Rock and Tom Hanks in 2020? SNL’s prediction. Anyone interested?

  48. So do you feel better now you know you are taking really expensive medicine? I sure hope it works.

  49. The world wants to know. Did Melina really slap Donald’s hand? The gossip mills are running with rumors.

  50. Brian – is going to Mike Pence’s conversion school on your bucket list? You could be #372😉

  51. dnd

    Say kids, it’s time for a new thread! – Trump’s Budget
