Sean Spicer can’t name a single legislative accomplishment for Trump’s first 100 days
By Tommy Christopher April 19, 2017 [shareblue.com]

Donald Trump was humiliated by his own White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, who was unable to name a single Trump agenda item that has passed legislatively as his first 100 days in office come to a close.
CNN

Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office will wind down in just over a week, and when the inevitable political hot takes are written, the most devastating critique will likely come from inside the White House.

At the White House daily briefing, reporter George Condon asked Press Secretary Sean Spicer to name a single legislative accomplishment from Trump’s agenda that he could boast when the 100-day mark hits.

Spicer failed spectacularly, offering an excuse right out of the — “We’re not done yet,” he said — and finally citing just one bill, which was actually sponsored by a Democrat.

CONDON: Looking ahead to the 100-day mark and setting an side executive orders, can you say what the single piece of legislation that you are proudest that you got through the Congress that was on the president’s agenda?

SPICER: Well, a few things on that. Number one, we’re not done. We’ve got a little days before we hit the 100-day mark. So I think what you’ve seen out of this White House is a very robust agenda of activity. There’s a lot of executive orders that I think the president’s been pleased with, not only what they’ve done or what they will do, but what they’ve done. When you look at immigration in particular, we see a fairly significant drop at the border. I think on jobs, there’s been a lot of activity that we’ve been very proud to see. American manufacturing and job creation. But then there’s pieces like what we did today, that I think if you’re a veteran who served our country, to know that you have additional options to get health care in a timely manner, or not just — but a geographically friendly manner so you’re not driving hours is very helpful and a strong symbol of how we treat our veterans.

Seems like a question for the President, not a spokesperson to interpret.

Well, this is timely:

What Trump told The Post he’d get done in his first 90 days

Trump: What I would do — and before I talk about legislation, because I think frankly this is more important — number one, it’s going to be a very big tax cut."

Um. How did the Don think he was going to cut taxes without legislation?

Quote

Trump: "...what would you do in the first 90 days? I would immediately start renegotiating our trade deals with Mexico, China, Japan and all of these countries that are just absolutely destroying us.

Costa: So renegotiate trade deals and have a tax cut. That would be your first 100 days?

Trump: Renegotiate trade deals and renegotiate military deals.

Costa: Real quick on trade deals …

Trump: And by the way, and renegotiate with NATO. And renegotiate with Japan …

You can imagine how the fact-checking went on evaluating those goals.

And there was one more thing:

Quote

Before he was inaugurated, Trump made an additional 90-day pledge on Twitter. Within that window, he said, he’d release “a full report on hacking” related to Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election.

ROTFL
