How we've begun, how they've begun, in the first two days, the first 48 hours of this new Trump presidential administration. It's at least as bad as we thought/said it would be.
It had an historically low turnout, in terms of Americans being there for the inauguration.
Furthermore, the Women's March on Washington, the next day, was far larger, by multiplications.
Seems not that many of us wanted to even watch on television, either.
And not just a little bit lower TV viewership, either.
Mr. Trump himself misrepresented, if not out and out lied, about the numbers and the people there.
Apparently this is okay for a Republican president to do. Can you imagine if Barack Obama was caught lying to us all in the first two days of his presidency?
It was followed by yet more lies on those numbers attending by Mr. Trump's White House Press Secretary.
Mr. Trump then went to the CIA and gave a really awful speech to staffers there and again, attacked the media, along with trying to talk himself up, "bigly" and repeatedly.
Former Director of the CIA John Brennan was stunned and would have nothing of it.
Trump's new Press Secretary, Mr. Spicer, then also scolded the media for "misrepresenting"---read: reporting---the low numbers.
There were protests, for the first time in the nation's history, against Mr. Trump and his presidency.
Meanwhile, just as we both feared and, in worst cases, predicted, Mr. Trump and his family are, in fact, trying to capitalize on his being in the White House, on his being President. They're prostituting the White House itself and the office of the Presidency.
Thanks, once more, once again, Republicans.
This will no way get better.
(Who is afraid of Donald Trump?)
