ThinkProgress is starting a series called “This Week in Trump’s America,” where they summarize the fountain of manure flooding forth from the White House. The editor noted:
There is a concept in the debate world called “spread.” You just throw out as many arguments as possible to overwhelm the opposition.
Trump is operating a spread presidency. Much of what he does is sloppy, dishonest and unpopular. But there is lots and lots of it.
It is hard to keep track of, even when IT IS YOUR FULL TIME JOB TO KEEP TRACK OF IT.
What about everyone else?
That’s why we’ve created this series. Each week, anyone can spend a few minutes and find out what Trump was up to.
You can read the positively dizzying summary of Week 1 in Trump’s America here. Unenforceable, illegal executive orders; a god damn Nazi speech; Spicer lying to a degree that even the Beltway media can’t be obsequious to; global gag rule on healthcare organizations that even mention abortion; closing the borders to countries whose citizens haven’t actually committed terrorist acts on Americans; conflicts of interest–the list goes on. And on.
