We’ve made it to week three of the Donald Trump presidency and every step of the way has been excruciating. 

If it’s not unjust policy he’s proposed, it’s wild statements like the one he made this morning about “fake news media.”

On Monday morning, the spirit moved Trump to make two statements about the polls he’s been seeing. “Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election,” he said. “Sorry, people want border security and extreme vetting.”

In a second tweet he notes, “I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it. Some FAKE NEWS media, in order to marginalize, lies!”

It’s interesting how Trump needs constant public justification for making complicit decisions that in his mind are “obviously” good for the nation. But the secret is, if something is good for the nation, it doesn’t need to be incessantly explained. 

Meanwhile, while POTUS was flexing his prowess, Apple, Google and Microsoft filed a legal brief opposing Trump’s temporary immigration ban, arguing that it “inflicts significant harm on American business”, as reported by Reuters

And it’s only Monday.
