Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, April 20, 2017

Matthew Nussbaum, Politico: President-elect Donald Trump was very clear: "I will appoint a team to give me a plan within 90 days of taking office," he said in January, after getting a U.S. intelligence assessment of Russian interference in last year's elections and promising to address cybersecurity. Thursday, Trump hits his 90-day mark. There is no team, there is no plan, and there is no clear answer from the White House on who would even be working on what. It's the latest deadline Trump's set and missed -- from the press conference he said his wife would hold last fall to answer questions about her original immigration process to the plan to defeat ISIS that he'd said would come within his first 30 days in office.

Trump made the deadline promise repeatedly. A week after the initial statement, he tweeted on Jan. 13, "My people will have a full report on hacking within 90 days!" ...

Missing the announced deadline demonstrates "a lackadaisical approach to what intelligence officials have routinely said is our biggest national security threat," said Ned Price, who was a spokesman for the National Security Council in the Obama White House and worked for the CIA during George W. Bush's presidency. "It speaks to the level of priority that this administration apparently has attached to cybersecurity, which apparently isn't much -- that is in stark contrast to the way the Obama administration addressed this issue over eight years, and especially during the last stretch."

Give Obama a break. Healthcare is complicated. President Trumpovich figured that out last month.

Didn't the last administration fall victim to many,many hacks, both governmental and business related?

I don't think it was addressed outside of rhetorical speeches and going after whistleblowers.

Exactly.

Trump lied again. There is NO investigation and you are ok with that.

His investigators are still busy in Hawaii investigating Obama's birth certificate. They still can't believe what they're finding.

There was a lot of big lies on the campaign trail, a lot of promises made by BLOTUS that have not been kept. Not just this promise but he was going to name China a currency manipulator on day one, he was going to end gun violence in Chicago immediately, he would defeat ISIS in a month, repeal Obamacare on his first day, etc. It's hilarious to see what Rubes still support him, he has accomplished NOTHING aside from spending a lot of taxpayer money on his weekly vacations to his own resort, allowing him to stuff that money right into his royal pocket.

It's like a reverse Trump Derangement Syndrome, where instead of "everything he does wrong", it's "everything he does is right". Still deranged, though.

This is a shame. I was so looking forward to the unfettered brilliance of a Trump plan to regulate smart people.

It would be like putting Barney Fyffe in charge of the CIA.

And he didn't take your doctor away. Your insurance company did.

Stop lying.
