Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, October 24, 2020

President Donald Trump has fired his biggest broadside yet this week against a federal bureaucracy he has moved to remake with an executive order that would remove job security from an estimated tens of thousands of civil servants. The directive, issued late Wednesday, strips long-held civil service protections from employees whose work involves policymaking, allowing them to be dismissed with little cause or recourse, much like the political appointees who come and go with each administration.

Remember how Fat Nixon used to criticize Obama for issuing executive orders?

Pepperidge Farms remembers.

"President Trump, who criticized President Obama as ineffective four years ago for relying heavily on executive orders, is increasingly wielding his presidential pen for tax relief, lower drug prices and other agenda items as the election nears.

With five months remaining in his term, Mr. Trump is on pace to exceed Mr. Obama's total number of executive orders issued in the Democrat's first term. Mr. Trump has signed 179 executive orders; Mr. Obama issued 185 in four years, according to the Federal Register.

"Obama, because he couldn't get anybody to agree with him, he starts signing them like they're butter," Mr. Trump said at the time. "So I want to do away with executive orders for the most part.""

When the Moonie Times criticizes him, that's telling.

He needs to confuse fools into thinking he's "draining the swamp". See reply #1 on this thread

Old #1 is a first day member.

My guess: a rat-licker, wears a lot of 'camo' with "Q" patches, but never served in the military. Jowells a-jiggling, lower lip full of dip, and is always ready to go off on rants that begin with "I'll tell you what!"; more than 2 dogs under the porch, 3 Trump signs out front, and a rusted out Chrysler PT Cruiser with at least 1 donut spare tire on it right next to the shed, with a 2 month expired license plate He's got 3 Trump signs with razorblades taped to the edges in the yard, a screen door off a hinge, and a proper MAGA arsenal and body armor in the front room closet.

I dont think he is new.
