Old Drumpf thought he could outsmart the Jewish media with a wily lie.
Turns out, he can’t.
To hear President Trump tell it, his first six months in the White House should be judged in part by the legislation he has signed into law.
At rallies, in speeches and on Twitter, Mr. Trump repeatedly boasts of the bills he has signed — 42 as of this week. He has said no president has “passed more legislation,” conceding once earlier this year that he trails Franklin D. Roosevelt, who he notes “had a major Depression to handle.”
On Monday, he went even further, claiming to have bested all of his predecessors in turning bills into law.
“We’ve signed more bills — and I’m talking about through the legislature — than any president, ever,” Mr. Trump said at a “Made in America” event at the White House. “For a while, Harry Truman had us. And now, I think, we have everybody.”
Turning to Vice President Mike Pence, he added an aside about news media fact-checkers: “I better say ‘think’; otherwise they will give you a Pinocchio. And I don’t like Pinocchios.”
In fact, as he approaches six months in office on Thursday, Mr. Trump is slightly behind the lawmaking pace for the past six presidents, who as a group signed an average of 43 bills during the same period. And an analysis of the bills Mr. Trump signed shows that about half were minor and inconsequential, passed by Congress with little debate. Among recent presidents, both the total number of bills he signed and the legislation’s substance make Mr. Trump about average.

HINT: It’s not because the media has realized that the entire world is mocking them over their obsessive coverage of that 20 minute meeting Drumpf Jr. had with a Russian lawyer and needed something to fill the early-week news cycle. Oh no. It’s something much, much more serious than that. I don’t actually know what it is because I didn’t have time to read the article because I had to go buy some shorts and toothpaste and other stuff I needed, but I’m sure it’s good because God’s chosen people wouldn’t lie.
Meanwhile, instead of admitting to this huge lie, Drumpf himself yesterday celebrated companies that are making things in America.
That is to say, he held a racist celebration of taking lucrative factory jobs away from Chinese, Indonesians, Mexicans and others.
Why does Trump believe that it is more important for an American to have a job than a Chinese peasant?
I’ll give you a hint: it has to do with a certain emotion he has towards a certain color of a certain body organ*.
*TYL: The skin is the biggest organ in the body.
It will also destroy the American economy to make things here, as they will be too expensive. That’s why Bill Clinton signed NAFTA and GATT in the first place – because there was this massive problem in the 80s and 90s with everyone being poor and not being able to buy anything because it was all made in America.
CNN, America’s most presigious and trusted news channel, also did a serious GOTCHA on Trump by calling out the fact that his own companies make products overseas.
Ask yourself, which thing is more important?
The fact that Trump is bringing jobs back to America, or the fact that years ago as a businessman he took advantage of existing opportunities in order to run a competitive business?
I think you know the answer.
Obviously, the fact that Trump made products overseas during a period when it was impossible to competitively produce anything without doing that means that even if he brings all the manufacturing jobs that Bill Clinton shipped out of America back to America it won’t mean a damned thing.
What’s more, do you know why he wants to bring jobs back to America?
Because of his ties to Russia.
