Like the Trump administration’s previously themed weeks, “Made in America” failed to take the media by storm, concluding with the President’s Mar-a-Lago Club applying for 70 additional visas for foreign workers. However, it was another failure which overshadowed the White House’s attempt to control the media narrative: Donald Trump’s negotiating of health care reform.
After a chaotic start to the Republican National Convention, Donald Trump officially became the GOP candidate for President last Tuesday. Conservatives such as GOP strategist Ana Navarro were quick to celebrate the historic moment: “Tonight, a part of me feels like my puppy died.”
Which is how I felt by the end of Trump’s acceptance speech on Thursday night.
While the GOP race came to a swift (and ridiculous) conclusion by Wednesday night, the same can’t be said for the Democrats. Even though he won the Indiana primary, Bernie Sanders has a larger issue to face than an uphill delegate battle: accepting his race is over.
It’s been a busy week! Trump swept all five primary states on Tuesday. Ted Cruz made a Hail Mary VP selection in Carly Fiorina, and Bernie Sanders claimed he still had a pathway to the Democratic nomination. How appropriate that the week ended in a night of jokes at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner.
“With great power there must also come great responsibility,” reads the narration at the conclusion of Spider-Man’s 1962 origin story. The GOP should make Amazing Fantasy #15 mandatory reading, because the party’s presidential candidates have skipped this life lesson.
The CNN/Telemundo debate was an all-out wrestling event that at times saw moderator Wolf Blitzer lose complete control of the situation. Last week’s Michigan debate saw frontrunner Donald Trump take it from a cage match to a literal dick measuring contest.
We aren’t at the conclusion of a Tarantino-worthy Mexican stand-off yet, but thanks to Saturday’s South Carolina GOP primary, we now have a clearer picture of who will be left to face off before the end credits roll.
At age 79, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has passed away of natural causes. Scalia’s influence and decision making within the Supreme Court has had a dramatic impact on our society.
Appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1986, Scalia was the first Italian-American to join the Supreme Court. However, the country may have been better served if Stallone’s Marion ‘Cobra’ Cobretti had been appointed instead.
