From now on, April 18 will be known as the real April Fools Day. Our beloved leader has decided that today would be a good day to show his total lack of integrity by signing an Executive Order to “Review Buy American, Hire American” policy.
If you think that beloved leader is really interested in enforcing such a policy, you have not paid attention to his family’s own businesses. Oh, I know that he is talking about Buying American and Hiring American when it comes to government contracts, but he even lied about that.
When he said he would approve the Keystone XL pipeline and the Dakota Access Pipeline he said both would have to use American Steel. Only, they aren’t using American Steel. As a matter of fact, the entire Keystone XL Pipeline will be made using German Steel. And, he said that was okay with him.
As you know, the day above is the count of days since he was elected president and still has not moved his own business manufacturing to the U.S. All of his products are made overseas. Including his family’s products. Except Junior’s wine business.
The review will also look at the H-1B visa process. You know, the very same process that Junior has hired over 1600 people using at his winery. Meaning the majority of his winery is made up of immigrants, not American Workers. Then we have trump himself hiring foreign workers for his resorts, specifically his Mar A Lago resort where he spends more time than just about anywhere else.
How is junior going to keep his winery stocked with employees if he can’t use the H-1B visa program? How is trump going to keep his resort stocked with employees if he can’t use the program. You can bet it will either not be changed, or it won’t affect certain industries. That way, he can exempt himself and his family from any changes on the horizon.
It has also been reported that Ivanka got her three trade marks approved in China the very same day she was sitting next to the Chinese President at dinner at Mar A Lago. Her and hubby Jared were both there and surprise surprise the trade marks were approved right then and there.
Beloved leader says that he is exempt from “conflict of interests” but his family isn’t. Ivanka could seriously be suspected of conflict of interest when she sat in at the dinner and miraculously she gets her trade marks in China.
The problem is that everyone is falling for this shit. The media, the people, and especially the trump supporters are all falling for this shit. They think that he really means what he says. But, he doesn’t mean a damn word. He simply says what he thinks they want to hear and then does something different that will benefit himself.
One of the craziest things I heard at a press briefing the other day was when the propaganda minister, Sean Spicer, said that the White House will keep the visitor logs secret and not be transparent. The reason that the trump White House will not be transparent at all is because Obama wasn’t transparent enough.
President Obama put the visitor log online so everyone could see it. He was the first president to do so. But, he did block out certain names if it meant national security or other potential secret work. This president who claimed to be even more transparent says that gives him the right to just not follow his predecessor’s lead. He claims that no other president made the visitor log public, and he is right. Only, the other Presidents did not claim to be so open and transparent. Or in trump’s own words “this will be the most transparent presidency in history”. Another lie.
There is nothing transparent about trump’s presidency. He won’t release the White House visitor’s log. He won’t release his own tax returns on the bogus excuse that they are under audit. He doesn’t do anything to make his presidency “transparent”.
Now, in what will probably be a wonderful photo-op, he will sign an Executive Order about Buying American, Hiring American. Only it won’t be anything that will affect his own businesses. Why? Simply because his is a brazen liar!
While Congress is on break, trump is hiding out in the White House or at Mar A Lago doing nothing, as usual. Republicans are being battered at town hall meetings across the country, and trump is trying to look presidential at an Easter Egg Roll on the White House Lawn. While Vice President Pence is trying to look “stern” at the North Korean border, and trump is playing golf.
Oh, he launched missiles at Syria that didn’t take out the military airbase like he said. It destroyed about 20 planes while his administration tried to claim that it took out 20 percent of the Syrian Air Force. A lie. Then he decided to show off and dropped a huge bomb in Afghanistan on ISIS. His followers all hailed him as being “presidential”. But, he hasn’t said what he will do next or what he even thinks should happen next. That would entail some real thought. Something that is really foreign to trump.
No, singing this Executive Order will be another empty photo-op that won’t do a damn thing to help the American People. It won’t help make sure that contractors use and hire Americans when working on government contracts, because if they cry it will cost too much, trump and the Republicans will give them a pass and let them use whatever material and whatever workers they think will be cheaper. That is how they have handled everything so far.
The man is such a fool his foreign-born wife even had to remind him to place his hand over his heart during the national anthem at the start of the Easter Egg Roll yesterday. Where are all the conservatives slamming him for being anti-American like they tried to do with President Obama? But, as usual, there is not a peep from the right-wing wackos. Which only proves to me they are the ones who are anti-American.
So, go ahead and mark your calendars. April 18 will now officially be known as April Fools Day. It has been declared so by the number one American Fool, our beloved leader.
And, the shirts keep marching along.
