200 Days into His Presidency, Unhinged Trump Blames Everyone for His Troubles

US President Donald Trump - 200 days later
Donald Trump - 200 days in, nothing to show for it.

Donald Trump thinks it is your fault that he is doing so badly as the President of the United States. A full 200 days into his presidency, Trump is going down as the least productive president in U.S. history.



Don’t tell him that, though.

Trump thinks everyone except his small base hates him. He thinks his approval ratings are so low because the media won’t report on his successes. And it’s the Democrats fault for not working harder to give him whatever he desires.

“The Fake News refuses to report the success of the first 6 months: S.C., surging economy & jobs,border & military security,ISIS & MS-13 etc.,” the president posted this week on Twitter.

Now, that is a man who has no clue.

Since becoming president, Trump has spent 58 days on his golf properties, 43 of which he spent playing golf, a feat unmatched by previous U.S. presidents including his predecessor Barack Obama whom Trump is fond of deriding for spending time on the golf course.




In August 2015, Trump called Obama’s work ethics into question for playing golf.

Today, six months into a 4-year term, Trump has spent more time on the links than Obama did in eight years.

Earlier this morning, tweeting from his cozy Bedminster Golf Club, Trump got into a tiff with Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) calling the Senator a “phony Vietnam con artist.”

Never mind that Trump himself never served. He was too busy using his father’s connections to get numerous deferments.

In 2010 Blumenthal was forced to admit under pressure during his re-election campaign that he only served in the U.S. Reserves, not in Vietnam as he had previously claimed. Trump said he “cried like a baby.”





Sen. Blumenthal, a former prosecutor, was on CNN Monday morning expressing concern about the Trump administration trying to pressure independent counsel Robert Mueller to temper his investigation into Trump, his finances, businesses, family and connections to Russia.

Blumenthal accused Trump of “bullying” and insisted that Trump allow Mueller to maintain his “independence and integrity,” without unnecessary political interference and pressure.

Over the weekend, The New York Times reported that Republicans are forming shadow campaigns in anticipation of Trump either being impeached or deciding against running for a second term in 2020.

That set Trump off. It also forced Vice President Mike Pence to refute the report calling it “disgraceful and offensive to me, my family, and our entire team.”

On the deteriorating U.S. relationship with Russia, Trump blamed Congress.

“Our relationship with Russia is at an all-time & very dangerous low. You can thank Congress, the same people that can’t even give us HCare!” Trump tweeted recently.

On his horrible relationship with his attorney general Jeff Sessions, it is the fault of leakers and the media

“A new INTELLIGENCE LEAK from the Amazon Washington Post,this time against A.G. Jeff Sessions.These illegal leaks, like Comey’s, must stop!” Trump tweeted.

And it was Barack Obama’s fault that Donald Trump Jr., was allowed to meet with Natalia Veselnitskaya,, the Russian lawyer with connections to the Kremlin and Vladmir Putin, 2016.

“She was here because of Lynch,” Trump said during a press conference in Paris with French President Emmanuel Macron.

“I think from a practical standpoint, most people would have taken that meeting. It’s called opposition research,” he said. “Politics is not the nicest business in the world, but it’s very standard.”

Trump Jr., admitted attending the meeting in the heat of the 2016 presidential campaign because he thought he was getting the promised dirt on Hillary Clinton.
