Donald Trump, sandwiched between two adult-sized toy trucks on the South Lawn Thursday, rolled out a glimpse of his second-term agenda and it was something to behold. A feast for the ears, if you will—a veggie feast of word salad so splendid, so plentiful, you’ll be chock full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber for months to come.
Trump is planning “things,” folks, so very many “things.” Strong things, big things, things so complex and unimaginable, Trump found them inarticulable. Even the “levels of detail” were left to the imagination—just one more thing to look forward to. Oh, the anticipation—it’s almost too much.
Here’s what we have to look forward to:
“So we have many exciting things that we’ll be announcing over the next eight weeks, I would say? Things that nobody has even contemplated, thought about, thought possible, and things that we’re gonna get done, we have gotten done, we started in most cases. But it’s gonna be a very exciting eight weeks, a, uh, eight weeks like, I prob, I think Mike, we can honestly say, nobody’s ever going to see eight weeks like we’re gonna have. Because we really have.
“We have, uh, we’re taking on immigration, we’re taking on education, we’re taking on so many aspects of things that uh, people were hopelessly tied up in knots in Congress, they can’t, they’ve been working on some of these things for 25, 30 years, it wasn’t happening. But, you’ll see, uh, levels of detail, and you’ll see levels of thought that a lot of people believed very strongly we didn’t have in this country. We’re gonna get things done, we’re gonna get things done that they’ve wanted to see done for a long, long time. So I think we’ll start sometime on Tuesday? We’ll be discussing our one plan on suburbia, but that’s one of many, many different plans, then we’re going into the immigration, the world of immigration, the world of education.
”We’re going into the world of health care, very complete health care, and we have a lot of very exciting things to discuss, but cutting of regulation has been really something that I felt we could do, and we could do fairly easily, nothing’s easy in this country, we had statutory requirements, where we’d do Phase I and then we’d have to wait 90 days, we’d do Phase II and we’d have to wait 60 days, we do Phase III and we said, ‘Let’s do Phase IV.’ ‘Sir, I’m sorry, you’re going to have to wait one year.’”
There you have it, folks. How Joe Biden’s going to top that agenda is unclear. But please, don’t shoot the messenger 😉
