It’s been described as “channeling Fidel Castro,” which is actually not all that inaccurate, but the president spent more than an hour ripping his predecessor and the media in a press conference that was like something out of a movie.
A lot of it was just vintage Trump, but there was some new stuff as well. He announced that Andy Puzder’s replacement as Labor Secretary is Alex Acosta, a former NLRB member. He said he’s asking DOJ to identify the intelligence community leakers who took down Mike Flynn. And he’s going to issue a new immigration/travel order which makes the business at the Ninth Circuit moot.
But the great stuff wasn’t policy. The great stuff was Trump slapping the left-wing media around. Even greater is the apoplectic reaction, some of which is fueled by the beginnings of an understanding that Trump is a lot more popular than they are with the American people.
If you haven’t seen it, enjoy…
