The honeymoon is over

“President Trump is often depicted as ‘unconventional’ and his actions ‘unprecedented.’ But his novelty exposes him and his administration to closer scrutiny than any previous presidency. Turns out the emperor has no clothes; his ‘unconventional’ behavior is often criminal, corrupt, duplicitous, unreliable, and incompetent. Across the spectrum of professions — from art museums and lawyers to actors, federal and local government employees, athletes, and NGOs — the outpouring of criticism is unprecedented. So is the number of negative votes cast by Democrats against every one of Trump’s cabinet nominees. Trump has been denied a honeymoon.” (02/15/17)
