That’s a pretty good start.

A recent study shows the press has been 88% hostile to President Trump.

IMAO’s take: Press unable to explain the 12% positivity.

Scott Adams postulates that he’s doing A/B testing and rapid turnaround.

I would add that his 90 day travel ban and EPA/NASA social media moratoriums also fall in line exactly with how a CEO behaves when they acquire a new company: freeze all programs you’re not sure about, hiring, and marketing until you can get a better grasp on what’s going on.

Amazingly quick and efficient, it seems.

Suddenly the left is interested in checks and balances again. Living in a surveillance state is a dangerous thing. So is living in an ideological police state. Journalists are interested in investigating scandal. The left is concerned about the wars we’re involved in. Separation of powers is a good thing. Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.

The left is going to hate living under the expanded system of executive overreach that they’ve built. This is all their own precedents. Maybe this time (who am I kidding) they’ll pay attention to the libertarians who are trying to explain that this is a problem regardless of who wields the power, because some day it will come back to bite you.
