In the past three weeks, Trump has: staffed the White House, sent a dozen Cabinet nominees to the Senate, browbeat The Boeing Company into cutting its price on a government contract, harangued American CEOs into keeping their plants in the United States, imposed a terrorist travel ban, met with foreign leaders and nominated a Supreme Court justice, among many other things. What have congressional Republicans been doing? Scrapbooking?
After the inauguration (gigantic!), House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell put out a plan for repealing Obamacare… in 200 days. They actually gave their legislative agenda this inspiring title: “The Two Hundred Day Plan.”
TWO HUNDRED DAYS!
This is The Silence Of The Lambs Congress. They’re utterly silent, emerging from the House gym or their three-hour lunches only to scream to the press about Trump.
To the delight of the media, these frightened little lambs are appalled by nearly everything Trump does.
