Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, August 05, 2020

Appearing on Fox News this morning, Donald Trump was asked, "Mr. President, what is your second term agenda? What are your top priorities?" It was the fourth time is six weeks the president was asked this question -- the most obvious and basic of any president seeking re-election ... (W)hat's far more amazing is Trump's inability to think of anything he wants to do if he's rewarded with a second term.

"I want to take where we left, we had the greatest economy in the history of the world, we were better than any other country, we were better than we were ever -- we -- we never had anything like it in this country.... What I want to do is take it from that point and then build it even better."

Circling back to our earlier coverage, part of this is predictable. When Trump delivered a campaign re-launch speech in Tulsa in June, he neglected to say what he intended to do if rewarded with a second term.

What's more, the president's campaign website does not feature an issues page listing any plans or blueprints for the future. Even the Republican Party's 2020 platform is just the 2016 platform recycled.

(T)he Republican incumbent hasn't presented any ideas to critique.

It's not an accident; it's the result of a choice. Governing parties present platforms to voters, in part so the electorate knows what they consider important, and in part so that winning candidates can claim a mandate in the event of a victory.

Post-policy parties, however, don't bother.

Is there a Republican anywhere who can articulate the policies and ideas for this nation's immediate future that Donald Trump wants to steward should he be re-elected to a second term?

Anyone?............. Bueller?.... Bueller?

1. Replace RBG with Tom Cotton.

2. Continue filling courts with conservative judges

3. Send troops into all Democratic cities and take control. To protect us.

4. End the American Global Empire.

Is he going to drain the swamp maybe?

Maybe he'll give us his secret plan for better cheaper health care?

Maybe he'll hire "all the best people?"

You know...the opposite of everything he's done so far?

You are giving him way too much credit. He will only come up with a plan if he somehow manages to pull off another upset.

"He will only come up with a plan."

He already has a plan.
He's just not talking about it.
Quit the dummy routine.

Moscow Mitch and the rest of the GOP have a plan, Trump, not so much.

More kids in camps.
More ICE raids.
More trade wars.
More winning.
More #MAGA.

You know, the GOP has a party platform.

Stop pretending the GOP won't try to implement it.

More Fascism, more authoritarianism, more totalitarianism.

Agenda? Nope. More hurt people break things blame others.
Or as George Conway said.
Promise everything
Deliver nothing
Blame others

His agenda is more taxpayer funded golf trips to his resorts.

Here's your second-term agenda;
-play even less golf
-get into Melania's pants
-visit some part of California other than San Ysidro
-Introduce a healthcare bill that will leave the ACA in the dust
-restore fiscal sanity in Washington, and move toward a balanced budget, with the wealthy shouldering their share

And the MAGA-hat mouth-breathers cheered. About #2 on the list...

His only plans are to
keep ripping off the American Public,
keep doing whatever the hell McConnell tells him to
(which happens to be the same as the previous point
I mentioned), declare himself Dictaster for Life,
and to play golf...

Reporter: President Trump, what are your plans for a second term agenda?

Trump: I will keep America Great.

Reporter: By doing what?

Trump: ...

Handlers rushing in: This interview is over. President Trump has a 3:00 p.m. coloring book appointment he cannot miss or he gets cranky.

Where is willowby? Is the President frickin deranged? We need willowby's learned medical opinion on this. Willowby knows these things.

Trumpy is very anxious about them Oranges. And what about the Yo's Semites. I think maybe they are in "thighland". He should send Ghouliani over there to get the Oranges. We need the get to them Oranges. We are dying here! And we need Trumpy to protect us from Rona and Biden. Because the Wuhan flu is killing us here in the United "Shates" and Biden Believes in the Debils Law (masks) and He can hurt Gawd (Trumpy says so!) and in Gawd We Trust so we gotta stop Him (The Almighty Gawd Killin Biden)!
