America has a new hit show:

Donald Trump’s photo op presidency

Donald Trump isn’t just president: He’s playing the part, masterfully.

Trump’s daily schedule is packed with meetings that double as photo ops — on Monday, six in a single day — reinforcing his administration’s message about getting to work and overturning Obama administration policies.

Trump cares deeply about visuals, knowing that sometimes pictures speak louder than words. Sometimes he even narrates what he’s doing to the camera crews, acting as both the star and director simultaneously. The new president is back in his element, hosting a show, this time not in the “Apprentice” boardroom but in the Oval Office.

“He wants to let his constituents know he is on the job,” said Martha Joynt Kumar, a professor who studies presidential communications. “Seeing him sign executive orders and memoranda, hold meetings with business and labor leaders let them know that no matter what reporters say about him, they can see he is on the job.”

President Trump could have signed 100 executive orders on his first day. But he only signed two. He’s been signing a couple every day, and now he is up to about ten. By spreading them out, he forces the news media to do a new story every day. Spreading them out also keeps “the resistance” discombobulated.

Nobody would watch a show if all the good stuff happened in the first episode. So every week you have some action and drama.

But it isn’t all for show. Trump is getting things done.

    The Trump House

  2. votermom says:

    I have to say, POTUS is turning me into a total Trump fan.

    A real doer.
    I made it to 50 and that presser obliterated any hint of how did this happen.

    It’s been too long since we’ve had a real President. Mo and Lobama were usurpers put in place by the fatal mix of stupidity and evil. The total cost of the eight years of Owbama will be MANY many trillions as well as the need to literally repair the collective American psyche such that most Americans even understand what a real Administration is supposed to do. And it isn’t tell you what you want to hear or vacation, fyi.

    This was a nice gesture.

    Evidently, Muslims felt right at home in the People’s House.

    Chicago, January to date.
    Shot and killed:44
    Shot and wounded:204
    Total shot:248
    Total homicides:45
    Yet the Chicago City Council had nothing but negative comments about Trumps calling the above stats “carnage” and his calling to send in the Feds,a threat.
    First of all, Trump isn’t talking troops, he’s taking law enforcement resources.
    During the Obama administration Chicago had one of the lowest prosecutions of federal gun violations.
    If you don’t call one person being shot every 2 hours and 20 minutes and one person murdered every 12 hours and 48 minutes on average carnage, what is it? A bad day?
    Of course the Chicago Dem’s always with their hands out want Trump to send “resources which means money.
    I say use some of the SanctuaryCity money instead.

      Meh. She was a Jimmy Carter liberal. And since when is it a headline that sick old people die? I don’t rejoice in her death, but I can’t honestly say I mourn it.

      • Jadzia says:

        I adored her. She was sick for a long time. I posted this in the last thread, but you can’t hear it too many times on a cold, Minneapolis-like morning:

    • votermom says:

      as a legal immigrant in the 90s, I remember signing all sorts of paperwork attesting that I would not be a burden on the government.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        For my sister in law from Germany, she had to show she had employable job skills and a place to call home. Immigration came to our house and interviewed my brother and parents because she was coming over as a bride to be and they wanted assurance that the commitment was serious. My bother passed away just a few days before their 41st wedding anniversary.

      • blowme0bama says:

        It’s still the law. Always has been a consideration for approval of immigrants. These dumbasses are used to “Obama law” and assumed irresponsibility was the norm.

      • Jadzia says:

        I think most countries require that type of attestation. France sure did. Moreover, they sent the gendarmes TO MY HOUSE, as a surprise, after I filed my citizenship application. To make sure my marriage of 10 years and 4 kids was genuine. I was at work at the time, in a city several hours away, and they sat their asses in my kitchen and waited for me to come back. After canvassing the neighbors to make sure that we were a real family.

      I guess he wouldn’t like Switzerland’s immigration policies.

    • taw46 says:

      A co-worker years ago told me about her relatives that were trying to come over here during the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. At that time, they had to sign documents that they either had employment or that her family would be financially responsible for them. The U.S. would not let them come over here without that guarantee, even though they would be what we call today “refugees”.

    This moron has NO self-awareness whatsoever. If she’s the “voice of her generation” we are seriously fucked.

      I just finished reading both immigration EOs….no screwing around…..The smug SJW big city mayors who said he really won’t do what he said….are now looking at potentially huge holes in their budgets. Both documents aren’t very long, are written in plain English and worth a read.

  21. Venus says:

    Trump’s high energy White House: RAMMING SPEED!!!

  22. CiscoKid says:

    Immediately after the Presidents interview ABC, “Trump at war with Chicago”
    Ok, you know what? Fuck Chicago. Let the carnage continue, don’t do a fucking thing until Emanuel comes crawling and begging for the Fed’s.
    Gang warfare will continue till then.
    Let it burn.

    • jenlyn says:

      Even better let’s make Chicago a prison build a big wall put a roof over it move out the decent people let it be what it is a big disgusting prison. We could ship all degenerates illegal immigrants and stupid pink hat wearing snowflakes that are truly revolting to Chicago and they can work it out amongst themselves. Even better we could televise it live pay-per-view use the money to build the wall between us and Mexico and ship the rest of the illegals and the needles out of this country get rid of two problems at the same time.

  23. CiscoKid says:

    Chicago is already a prison, people who already own their homes but can’t afford to buy higher priced homes in better neighborhoods, they are stuck in the prison of the Democratic ghetto, Chicago has been under Democratic control for the last 50 years or so.
    The devastating effects of gang warfare, not bs “gun violence” has taken its toll on this city.
    Constantly bitching that too many people of color are incarcerated, ignoring the possibility that those are the ones committing the crimes being arrested and found guilty by a trial.

  24. Underwhelmed says:

    Commenter at Gay Patriot nails it:

    ‘the article clearly shows what happens when the left is so intolerant of opposing views. Those with differing views simply remain quiet. If you speak out against abortion, the intolerant left accuses you of hating women. If you speak out against SSM, the intolerant left accuses you of hating gay people. If you speak out against Obama’s policies, the intolerant left accuses you of being a racist.

    The intolerant left thinks this silence means they have changed people’s minds. The intolerant left are stupid. After years of shaming people into silence, those who were shamed into silence spoke. They stupid, intolerant left is baffled. Good. A baffled enemy will make many mistakes.’

    • lateblum says:

      Excellent. I still stay as quiet as I can. Living here in the Democrat suburb that I do, it only makes sense. Just this past summer, I stated to an old and dear friend that I could not vote for HRC. He said little about it other than giving me a bizarre stare, But, despite my efforts, I haven’t heard from him since. Last night, I stopped at a local restaurant where I know the staff pretty well. They are really good, decent people. They tried to engage me in a conversation about impeaching Trump. So I asked on what grounds might that happen. They said, “Look at the damage he’s already done!” When I asked for specifics, they rolled their eyes and asked me where I’ve been hiding out that I wouldn’t know what “sins” he’s already committed. They talked about marching in DC with great excitement. For them, it was all about being anti-Trump.
      With this ongoing hate fest, it seems Trump and his people could be in the WH for a very long time because the Ds can’t see three feet ahead of them.
