Trump Bitches About Mainstream Media For 1000th Time, Reminds Nation That May 1st Is Loyalty Day

The Guardian reports:

On his 100th day in office, facing a historically low popularity rating, a succession of intractable foreign crises and multiple investigations of his links with Moscow, Donald Trump reminded the nation that 1 May was Loyalty Day.

The day is an American tradition dating back to the Cold War, when it was a bolster to stop May Day becoming a rallying point for socialists and unionised workers. But for an embattled president learning on the job, it has an added resonance.

Making his remarks in an interview with Fox News timing with the 100-day mark, Trump also declared himself “disappointed” with congressional Republicans – despite his many “great relationships” with them.

Regarding his lack of signature legislative achievement, he blamed the constitutional checks and balances built in to US governance. “It’s a very rough system,” he said. “It’s an archaic system … It’s really a bad thing for the country.”

        Just rubbing salt in the wounds. Or as the Trumpets like to say, surfing on the liberal tears. Can you imagine how unhinged they’d be if Clinton did any ONE of those things. ONE of them.

  • Nic Peterson

    Signing executive orders is not an achievement.

  • goofy_joe

    Loyalty Day…checks and balances are bad for the country…how much more proof do people need that this dick is a fascist?!

    • Carl

      The average man on the street doesn’t know what the term “checks and balances” means. They’d probably think you’re talking about your bank balance.

      • Nic Peterson

        To the average trump voter the check is what they hand over they hand over to the payday loan shark because of the balance.

      • Jamie_Johnson

        Shitler thought it was “Czechs and Ballerinas,” the catalog where he bought Melania.

      • goofy_joe

        Therein lies another problem with our democracy, the lack of a well educated electorate. Which is why the term “I’d have a beer with him” appears to hold more weight than, “(s)he has some really great ideas about how to direct the nation, experience, and a truly genuine drive to serve…”

      I can’t imagine having an ego so big that you actually believe your previous real estate job was more work than leading a nation.

      • bkmn

        The hard part was keeping all the scams straight. You don’t want to try to scam the same people twice, you know.

        • jmax

          That must be the hard work he’s referring to.

        • safari

          I don’t think you can usually scam people twice. The banks certainly didn’t seem to like it.

      Such a relief DC doesn’t have a street this wide.

      That was my second thought. My first thought was how “Mayday” is an international radio distress signal used by ships and aircraft. God knows that word has been on the tip off my tongue since January 20th.

  • Joe in PA

    Why does he keep calling them legislative signings? They were executive signings yes, but that isn’t legislative. Am I missing something?

    This is from before Ivanka and Jared came on board

    “What we’ve learned in the last few weeks is the kind of government Donald Trump is building:

    it’s a Mafia state .

    In a Mafia state, the patriarch rules as in a family. He doesn’t need to spell things out — he expects intuitive obedience, and there are penalties for not intuiting his wishes.

    He’s going to choose people based solely on loyalty and family membership. If they get their positions through merit, they wouldn’t owe everything to him. It’s not his ultimate goal to destroy freedom and democracy, but you have to, if you want to steal as much as possible ”

    Yeah, it really sucks that the Constitution is really more than just words. /s

    This statement really is telling when it comes to his personality.

    What a pathetic, weak, little man.

    • Carl

      The people who practically deify the founders and their constitution always seem to loathe the system they created.

    • TrollopeReader

      He seems to like the archaic Electoral College ….

      • TrollopeReader

        He also seems to like appointing strict Constitutional judges, too. ( I know, he gets confused now and again!)

    • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

      Can you imagine if anyone else even remotely hinted that our Government, and thus our Constitution was archaic.

    • Gerry Fisher

      Emphasis on the “little.”

    • Dagoril

      What’s heartening to me at least, is that the Founders put the government together well enough to stop someone like Drumpf, even with the entire Congress supporting his stupid ass. Maybe we’ll get through this after all.

      • Christopher

        Let’s hope so. Otherwise the whole planet may suffer because of his childish tantrums.

  • May 1st is ‘Loyalty Day’?

    Like fuck it is. Sounds to me like this motherfucking shitgibbon needs a general strike to remind him exactly who May Day belongs to.

      Once the administration masters organizing an Easter Egg Roll we can expect military parades down Pennsylvania Avenue for “Loyalty” Day.

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      I just now read about the Haymarket Massacre in Chicago for the first time. All these years I had thought that May 1 was declared International Workers Day because of something or other in Europe, and I had no idea that the event it was based on happened in the USA.

    Fun fact: the original May Day workers’ commemoration was American in origin, having to do with the Haymarket riot in Chicago, 1886. Another gap in Donald’s history knowledge, along with “arise, ye wretched of the earth” not being a personal invitation for him to spout off.

    Was reading that the majority of Drumpf’s EOs were declarations to investigate various issues and policies. They didn’t reverse much of anything. Of course they were declarations geared towards a far right-wing assessment, but still. Sort of puts a damper on the one supposed achievement he trumpets the most.

    Being “optimistic” is not considered an accomplishment when you are President.

    It sure reeks of desperation, though, if that’s on your short list of “accomplishments”.

    Should we sing him a chorus of the song, “High Hopes”?

  • MikeBx2

    Actually the media I read/watch, most of it left leaning, gives him way more credit and benefit of the doubt than he deserves. Often when they paraphrase something he said, it sounds nothing like the words he actually used. They still are trying to normalize him.

    May 1st is a huge national holiday in Russia, it has been renamed “Spring and Labor Day” since the Soviet Union fell. However the military parades still happen and old communists love to march on this day. On May 9th is also a national holiday called “Victory Day”. It is the celebration over Germany surrendering. Again, more military parades in Russia.

    Trump is so mesmerized with all that military power on display, he wants to do that here. He really is a dictator in the making.

    Here is a blast from the past. It reads, с праздником товарищи which translates to “Happy Holiday Comrades”. This is classic Soviet propaganda.

    If Loyalty Day had any real meaning, it would also be called Impeachment Day, at least this year.

    Loyalty day, yes. But to what?
    Loyalty to America the nation and it’s people? Loyalty to the Constitution of the United States? Loyalty to Donald Trump, personally? Loyalty to Russia? Most Americans have not forgotten the meaning of the word, which is the reason why they resist as they do.

    Wrong. https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=trump+wrong&tbm=isch

    The system was constructed the way it is for a reason, to prevent a leader from acting on his own personal interests with no regard for the country, to prevent a President who rules by diktat. It is a really god thing for the country.
