Amid executive branch chaos, Trump calls Democrats

Published on January 31, 2017 by   ·   No Comments

The acting attorney general has been fired, protests are rocking the nation’s largest airports, and a constitutional clash is brewing between the executive and judicial branches, but Mr. Trump thinks the Democrats are a real mess because their audio equipment malfunctions, as do their tear ducts.
The rally he was referring to was surprisingly large for what amounted to a political event on the steps of the Supreme Court. But what is really sticking in the president’s craw is the glacial pace of confirmations in the Senate — which is intentional. His choice for transportation secretary, Elaine Chao, is likely to be confirmed on Tuesday afternoon, and his nominee for secretary of state, Rex W. Tillerson, will probably get a vote on Wednesday. Committee votes are expected today for his nominees for attorney general, Jeff Sessions; health secretary, Tom Price; education secretary, Betsy DeVos; and small business administrator, Linda McMahon.

But Democrats are deliberately slowing the process as they demand more answers to questions about ethics and the nominees’ views on Mr. Trump’s temporary immigration ban from citizens of seven predominately Muslim nations
