President Trump’s First 100 Days

President Trump's First 100 Days
On Saturday in Gettysburg Pennsylvania, a place hallowed by history, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump pledged that his first 100 days in office would be a campaign of vengeance against everyone and and anyone he feels has crossed him. Saturday’s speech has been called his “Grievanceburg Address.”

Hillary Clinton, guilty of the crime of running against him in the election? She’ll be locked up in prison.

The media outlets guilty of the crime of recording and fact-checking the things he says? Punished with bigger tax bites, and they can forget about any mergers. Reporters? They’ll be sued, too.

The 17 women who say he harassed or assaulted them? Sue ’em, even the ones who have corroboration for their claims.

And why not? Assume office and swiftly settle scores. It worked for Mussolini, Stalin, Putin, and others.

Mr. Trump told us he would do this back in 2007, in his book Mein Kam.. Think Big and Kick Ass:

“When someone intentionally harms you or your reputation, how do you react? I strike back, doing the same thing to them only ten times worse.”

Just what you want to hear from someone who wants control of America’s nuclear codes.

Update:

“In final days, Trump is obsessed with vengeance, kept away from Twitter by staff,” Libby Nelson, Vox

Post-Election Update:

“Omarosa Issues Warning: Anti-Trump Republicans Will Be Put On A List,” Allegra Kirkland, TPM Livewire
