Hey, that’s what I’m doing!
From a gang of tweeters:
Trump didn’t extend unemployment benefits yesterday. He told states to set up a “lost wages assistance program” in coordination with FEMA, DHS and DOL and it’s gonna be a dang mess.
It also seems, like, illegal.
But a real shame if people think this is going to pay them next week.
The memorandum is in plain English and you can see that this is insanely complicated. Obvious, key context: states have already failed utterly to implement simpler policies in timely fashion.
As I’ve said elsewhere, people need to READ the text of executive orders. It’s a publicity stunt to make people think he’s DOING something. The texts clearly show all he is doing is pointing his finger at some cabinet member and saying “Look into this.”
Trump actually thought he upgraded & modernized our entire nuclear arsenal in a few months in 2017 because of an Executive Order:
Agreed, but the publicity stunt only works if you have an accomplice in the mainstream media that will just pipeline it into the ether.
Because he’s the “president” they have to cover him and he counts on people just looking at the pictures.
