A son-of-a-Trump just tweeted what he thought was a glowing article about his father, but it wasn’t. Reading is HARD. Donald Trump Jr. who is arguably the dumbest member of the Trump family tweeted a link to an Associated Press article without being aware that it was highly critical of his porn star banging father.
Trump has kept many promises during his first year in office https://t.co/LU3lQXzEEE

The problem is that the article notes that after a year into his ‘presidency,’ Donald Trump “is no closer to making Mexico pay for a border wall than when he made supporters swoon with that promise at those rollicking campaign rallies of 2016.”
But wait, there’s more!
“His own administration’s sloppy start explains why none of the laws he pledged to sign in his first 100 days came to reality then and why most are still aspirational,” the AP reports.
Twitter users wondered if Junior had read the article.
Seriously did you read it … it was a well written critique of your father’s weak and Pathtic first year… not reading must run in your family

My favorite lines from the article
“He’s not delivered on that”
“His approach so far is all carrot, no stick.”
“It hasn’t been done”
“never acted on.”
“a tangle of ethical questions”
“Mexico still isn’t ponying up money for the wall.”

Like your dad, you’re obviously not big on reading.
“His own administration’s sloppy start explains why none of the laws he pledged to sign in his first 100 days came to reality then and why most are still aspirational.”

My favorite part, though. From the article: “A year in, Trump is no closer to making Mexico pay for a border wall than when he made supporters swoon with that promise at those rollicking campaign rallies of 2016.” BOOM! Do the math.

The article Junior is bragging about is not flattering. It speaks of a man who brags about non-existent achievements, sort of what Junior is doing right now.
It mentions Trump bragging about “having signed more than 80 pieces of legislation into law, but there’s little of consequence in that pile.”
The article notes that Trump has “signed laws naming federal buildings after people, appointing a Smithsonian Institution regent and other housekeeping steps that all presidents do but tend not to make a fuss about.”
“In contrast, Obama signed an enormous stimulus package into law in his first month while also achieving a law expanding health care for children and other policy steps,” the AP reports.
“Then there’s Franklin Roosevelt, credited by historians Alan Brinkley and Davis Dyer with achieving “the most concentrated period of U.S. reform in U.S. history,” starting immediately with emergency legislation to stabilize the Depression-devastated banking system and setting in place the New Deal with 14 pieces of historic legislation in 100 days,” the article concludes.
