The Obamas refused to be photographed welcoming President-Elect Donald Trump and his wife Melania to the White House Thursday morning, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.
Nice touch. A jerk from start to end. And then there’s this: AWKWARD FIRST MEETING: Trump talks of ‘difficulties’ in chat with Obama at White House
Mr Trump claimed it was a “great honour” to meet with Mr Obama, who has he previously branded “the worst President in the history of our country”.
But he appeared solemn as the pair gave a joint press conference at the Oval Office, before reluctantly shaking hands with Mr Obama.
And then along the same lines: Awkward moment sworn enemies Obama and President-elect Trump pose together in the Oval Office during first EVER meeting. And if you go to the link you will not find a photo where the two are seen looking at each other in the eye. It may even be deep, personal and genuine, whatever they might say in public, and not just politics as usual. I understand what Rush means when he says I’m Getting Nervous About All These Calls for Trump to Unify with the Losers, but Trump is different. In any case, we are soon enough going to know.
ANN COULTER ADDITION: PRESIDENT TRUMP’S FIRST 100 DAYS.
Well, that was the easy part. All Trump had to do was vanquish people too stupid to pick up the thousand-dollar bill lying on the sidewalk — smug, smirking, out-of-touch establishment drones.
Now comes the part Americans have desperately hoped for, but almost never seen: A politician keeping his promises to the American people. (See, e.g., Senate candidate Marco Rubio’s 2010 promise to oppose amnesty if elected; Sen. Mitch McConnell’s 2014 promise to block Obama’s executive amnesty if Republicans were handed a Senate majority; Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Ted Cruz’s promise to support the 2016 Republican presidential nominee.)
Hey, anybody else remember “Read My Lips”? That was from the family too pristine to sully themselves by voting for Trump.
With the self-assurance of everything else they’ve said wrong about Trump from Day One, the media are already announcing that he, too, will betray the American people.
I don’t think so! To help Mr. Trump keep his promises, I’ve compiled a detailed schedule for his first 100 days in office. Please note that each day is meticulously planned:
Day 1: Start building the wall.
Day 2 – Day 100: Continue building the wall.
Good luck, President Donald Trump!
AND THEN THERE’S THIS: Trump is already working to erase Obama’s legacy from history. Would that he could. But what he can he will. Why the word “surprisingly” in the story? These people still don’t understand the nature of power and how it is used.
President-elect Donald Trump was surprisingly gracious as he met President Barack Obama in the Oval Office on Thursday but make no mistake: He is already working to erase major parts of Obama’s legacy from the history books.
Trump will be able to change some of Obama’s policies with a quick stroke of the pen. Others will be much more difficult, requiring justification to pass legal hurdles or buy-in from lawmakers on Capitol Hill or foreign leaders. . . .
Later in the day, Trump emerged from meetings with House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and noted that he wants to work on health care, immigration, lower taxes and job creation – all moving in an opposite direction from Obama.
Sounds good to me.
