Quote of the Day
“Four weeks into its first term, the Obama Administration had already passed the biggest economic stimulus since the Great Depression and a sweeping fair-pay act. It had also announced a troop surge in Afghanistan. By comparison, Trump has achieved virtually nothing, except scaring the bejeezus out of the world.
”In his mind, of course, things are very different. For more than an hour on Thursday, he stood at a White House lectern, the yellowness of his hair accentuated by the gold drapes hanging behind him, and demonstrated, again, that he long ago escaped the bounds of reality that restrict most mortals.“
-- John Cassidy, ”Donald Trump's Alternative-Reality Press Conference,“ The New Yorker.
”In his mind“ ... ”Bound of reality." Reminder: This is a man with the power to blow up the world.
