Trumps claim that no administration has accomplished more in the first 90 days

Trump is on track to be a world class do nothing president. Trump is now lying about his accomplishments. The fact checking of trump's rather ignorant but funny claims is amusing. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2017/04/20/trumps-claim-that-no-administration-has-accomplished-more-in-the-first-90-days/?hpid=hp_hp-more-top-stories_fact-checker-545a%3Ahomepage%2Fstory&utm_term=.5d4105785ef5

No administration has accomplished more in the first 90 days.”

— President Trump, remarks in Kenosha, Wis., April 18, 2017

The first 100 days of a presidency mark a rather artificial milestone, but one by which all presidents have been measured since Franklin D. Roosevelt’s whirlwind of action when he took office in the midst of the Great Depression. President Trump appears especially conscious of this marker. During the presidential campaign, he even issued a list of 60 promises that he said he would fulfill in his first 100 days.....

The Facts

There are various ways to measure presidential performance, such as number of laws passed. But of course not every law is created equally, so you have to parse the data. The same goes for executive orders and memorandums.....

“Trump actually is unusual for his first 100 days, but for a reason opposite of what he said,” said Skidmore, author of “Presidential Performance: A Comprehensive Review.” “Not only has he accomplished almost nothing, but rather his initiatives (executive orders stayed by courts, a major legislative proposal failing even to come to a vote when his party controls both houses, etc.) have notoriously been unsuccessful.”

“FDR definitely outclasses Trump,” Brands said. “Fifteen major bills through Congress, to zero for Trump.”

The Pinocchio Test

It’s rather silly for any president to suggest that his first 100 days somehow topped Roosevelt’s achievement. Lyndon B. Johnson, Ronald Reagan and Obama are credited with significant legislative achievements early in their first terms, but much of their success generally came after the first 100 days. Trump would be well advised to not make such a big deal about this because the available evidence shows that he in no way comes close to matching FDR’s record.

Four Pinocchios


Trump has accomplished nothing and is a failure for his first 100 days. It is funny to see trump lie about his so-called accomplishments.

1. Jeff Bezos WaPo gives 4 pinochios.

What a surprise.

Trump has accomplished a lot, certainly more than anyone since Reagan.

4. Calling him a liar in this case is unfair. He has no idea what other presidents have accomplished.

 

He might struggle naming all the presidents post-WWII.

I'd prefer he was lying

5. One great supreme court justice

$68,000,000,000 in burdensome regulations wiped out, an economy that is finally starting to show signs of life after years of stagnation.
I'd say he's doing pretty damn good.

12. Trump accomplished nothing in his first 100 days, but Democrats have been kicking ass

Here are some great pictures for a silly non-law review type http://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/4/21/1654977/-Trump-accomplished-nothing-in-his-first-100-days-but-Democrats-have-been-kicking-ass

It’s time to celebrate 100 days. Not 100 days of Donald Trump—there’s nothing about that worthy of celebrating, not even for Trump supporters.

No, it’s time to celebrate 100 days of accomplishment and rebirth. Of growing energy, building hope, fighting back, rising up. One hundred days of marching. One hundred days of protesting. One hundred days of organizing. One hundred days of looking to the future. One hundred days of learning from the past. One hundred days of keeping hope alive. One hundred days of never giving up.

One hundred days of resistance to Donald Trump.

Donald Trump lost the popular vote. His electoral victory came with fewer people than can be seated in many stadiums. And yet the whole idea of Trump, the idea that someone could run for president on the basis of overt racism and sexism. That someone could make an appeal to the nation based on the most extreme form of xenophobia. That someone would seek the nation’s top office in a muddle of ugly threats and blatant ignorance. That someone like that might win … it might have been expected to rip the heart from the whole progressive movement. To send the American left down in despair. Surely the white nationalist forces that supported Donald Trump must have looked forward to that.

It didn’t happen that way. What happened was the Women’s March. What happened was airport protests over Donald Trump’s ban on travel from Muslim countries. What happened was an energy that ran from the National Mall to the sixth district of Georgia—a rising wind that’s still rising.

Here is why the first 100 days of Donald Trump’s regime are legitimately worth a celebration.

11. Sean Spicer struggles to name a single legislative win in Trumps first 100 days

There is a reason why spicy has trouble here https://www.dailydot.com/layer8/sean-spicer-struggles-name-single-accomplishment-trumps-first-100-days/?fb=ss&prtnr=mic

A journalist at the White House press briefing on Wednesday asked Press Secretary Sean Spicer what should have been the ultimate softball question: “Setting aside executive orders, can you say what the single piece of legislation that you are proudest you got through the Congress that was on the president’s agenda?”

This would have been the perfect time for talking points, but instead, Spicer bought himself some time with, “Well, a few things on that. Number one, we’re not done. We’ve got a little ways 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.”

Then, he moved to the crux of his point: “There’s a lot of executive orders that I think the president’s been pleased with.”

15. Trump's First 100 Days: What has Trump accomplished so far?

Trump has a been a major failure for his first 100 days https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2017/04/20/trumps-first-100-days-what-has-trump-accomplished-so-far/?utm_term=.d74ab28fab55

Trump’s assertion (“no administration has accomplished more”) on Tuesday was a bold one. So our colleague Glenn Kessler decided to take a look at his achievements so far, to see whether the claim holds up.

Here is what he found:

Trump has signed 28 bills into law so far. Thirteen aimed to reverse Obama-era policies. Several others are what one expert called “minor or housekeeping bills.” With a few days left before the 100-day mark, Trump has enacted no major pieces of legislation.

Trump has issued 24 executive orders, 22 presidential memorandums and 20 proclamations. This pace does “not stand out as especially unusual,” our colleague wrote.

Trump is lagging when it comes to appointments, with many crucial administration positions — including Senate-confirmed posts — still vacant.

Trump has made waves with his foreign policy. He launched airstrikes in Syria after a chemical attack against civilians. He has taken a tougher posture toward North Korea and Iran. It is unclear, however, where these policies will lead.
Experts were not particularly sympathetic to Trump’s claim about his productivity.

“Trump actually is unusual for his first 100 days but for a reason opposite of what he said,” Max J. Skidmore, a political science professor at the University of Missouri in Kansas City and author of “Presidential Performance: A Comprehensive Review,” told our colleague.

“Not only has he accomplished almost nothing, but rather his initiatives (executive orders stayed by courts, a major legislative proposal failing even to come to a vote when his party controls both houses, etc.) have notoriously been unsuccessful.”

16. He doesnt even qualify as an entry-level president: Historians weigh in on Trumps first 100 days

Trump is doing very poorly http://www.salon.com/2017/04/24/he-doesnt-even-qualify-as-an-entry-level-president-historians-weigh-in-on-trumps-first-100-days/

President Donald Trump’s first 100 days will not only fall far short of the mark set by his predecessor, President Barack Obama, according to top presidential historians, his first days in office haven’t been adequate by any measurement.

Robert Dallek, who has written about presidents from Harry Truman to Ronald Reagan, told NPR that “this man is without experience, and it’s showing. Particularly in his dealings with Congress, he’s been an utter failure in the sense that he’s gotten nothing passed. He’s issuing all sorts of executive orders, like immigration limits; they’re failing. The attempt to get health care reform failed. I’d give him failing marks for his 100 days.”

Similarly, Barbara Perry — who is director of presidential studies at the Miller Center at the University of Virginia — told NPR that Trump doesn’t even qualify as an “entry-level president.”

“I think that’s too generous,” Perry insisted. “Unless he would be an intern, he would not have a position in the White House — with no educational experience, no military experience, no government, no political experience, most of it was running for president.”

Richard Norton Smith, whose experience writing about presidents includes a biography of the man who was once our nation’s most famous businessman-turned-president, Herbert Hoover, told NPR that Trump’s presidency is proof that knowing how to run a business does not necessarily qualify one for the White House. “Profit-loss statements don’t take into account the irrationality of Kim Jong Un. Corporate budgets don’t have to allow for military defense. All these kinds of perfectly rational expectations that apply in a corporate world are rarely applicable in the less-than-rational world of politics,” Smith said.

21. You are not being fair. Looking at the Repubs record for the last 30 years you

 

should know they measure success, not by legislation but by how many times they fail at repealing the ACA. I think they tried 60 times and failed every time. They have no notable legislation for the last fricking long time.
