Trump signed an executive order last month taking aim at the existence of a nonpartisan civil service with job protections for career employees that prevent the entire government from being politicized—and 88% of the workers at OMB are already in the crosshairs.
Trump's executive order looks remarkably similar to the one drafted by industry, emails reveal.
"This is no art of the deal. This is not presidential leadership. These orders are not real solutions. They are just another cynical ploy designed to deflect responsibility."
When even Lindsey Graham won't suck up to your unconstitutional BS...
Fox's Brian Kilmeade and Charles Payne make excuses for Trump signing his phony "executive orders" rather than having his people negotiate in good faith with Democrats, pretend he had no choice, and then admit that Republicans were never going to vote for a dime of relief money in the first place.
Because Trump has surrounded himself with conservatism's least competent blowhards—namely, whichever self-promoting grifters impress him during Fox News appearances—the executive orders produced manage to both do extremely bad things, and to do them illegally.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) faced off against Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday over the failure to negotiate a COVID-19 financial relief bill.
CNN's legal analyst Areva Martin blew gigantic holes in Trump's executive order which changes exactly NOTHING about the ways police can kill African-Americans with impunity.
And the whole thing proves beyond a doubt that the so-called president has no idea how health insurance works.
What he's signing won't help and will hurt people who need insurance the most.
