A Batting Average of .055

Dear Drumpfkins, get used to watching your beloved leader make and break promises.

He doesn’t care about you and he never did/has/will. He said what he needed to say so that you would cast your vote for him and now he doesn’t need you anymore.

I was going to take a look at all the promises Drumpf made about what he would do on his first day as President, but the fine folks at ThinkProgress have already done the heavy lifting.

According to their analysis, Comrade Drumpf made thrity-six promises about what he would do on January 20, 2017, his first day in office.

He ony kept two of them.

Among the promises he broke (and get used to the words “Drumpf”, “broken”, and “promise” being in close proximity to each other for next 3 1/2 years) are…

…Drumpf did not label China a currency manipulator,

…Drumpf did not issue a regulation stating that for every new federal regulation, two must be eliminated,

…Drumpf did not cancel billions in dollars in payment to the United Nations,

…Drumpf did not propose an amendment to the U.S. Constitution imposing term limits on Congress

…Drumpf did not cancel federal funding to Sanctuary Cities; and

…Drumpf did not commence the removal of “the more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants from the country”.

The two pledges he did keep were to:

halt any new federal regulations, and

…impose a hiring freeze in the federal government.

Actually, there was a thirty-seventh promise broken. Drumpf had said his Day One would be the first day he was President. Actually, in his speech at Gettysburg, the term he used was “the first day of my term in office”, which would be the 20th of January. However, that goal post – and his new “Day One” – has been moved to Monday, January 23, according to this story, which says…

Although Trump campaigned on promises to get to work immediately, Trump officials have said they expected Monday as the first big workday of the new administration, his effective Day One.

Because words and promises and pledges apparently don’t mean anything to Drumpf.

That’s about the only thing you can count on when Drumpf opens his mouth.
