As the Commander-in-Chief wielded his version of “[applied] intelligence and common sense” he and his cabinet kept us in a state of confusion speaking in his non-inclusive tone about what’s not gonna happen while being very clear that many of the things vulnerable, marginalized Americans would prefer not to happen, in fact will! While continuous leaks of information undermine his administration, he points to examples of his “real leadership.” While many in the press are waiting for him to display true presidential demeanor – he instead seems to have pivoted right back to his unpolished, tactless points of view.

In the “what’s next?” whirlwind we all face listening to his rhetoric it seems like competition, choice and credits were the main points made by President Trump in his pseudo-campaign rally Wednesday evening. Mere slogans like “buy American and hire American” tantalize many peoples ears but don’t match up with the facts.
Trump was scheduled to speak directly about healthcare and school choice in Nashville, but there was more talk of “fake news” covering his rants and less about the increasing Republican opposition to his proposed health care plan.
In a healthcare town hall event broadcast right after the President sidestepped his script on the topic, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services Tom Price spoke as he often thanked people for their service and respective cancer-remission, but rarely answered many of the people’s direct questions, often misrepresenting their actual proposed plan.
Trump’s cabinet have become the authors of utter chaos and Trump himself the commander of confusion, as mere slogans override the facts, and half truths and lies pour out at an unprecedented rate. However, there is no confusion that the vulnerable and marginalized are not yet a priority in this administration and there’s little confusion about that.
