Week 1: January 20-26

In his first few minutes as president, Trump gave a dark Inaugural Address about “American Carnage.” Some conservative writers were not impressed: A Most Dreadful Inaugural Address

The next day he delivers a “a campaign-style, stream-of-consciousness airing of grievances” to members of the CIA in front of the hallowed Memorial Wall. Watch the full speech here.  Some intelligence officials were deeply offended.

In the face of Trump’s false claims about his crowd sizes and millions of people who voted illegally, the news media struggles with Calling a Lie a Lie , as explained in this survey of Trump un-thruths by Dan Barry.

The “biggest diplomatic rift between the U.S. and Mexico in decades” erupts when the President of Mexico cancels a planned trip to meet Trump after Trump again insists that Mexico will be coerced through trade policy to pay for the boarder wall.

  1. I read and watch the news commentary, but he won so we just have to do damage control. Today contact your state senator to vote against Betsy DeVos for Sec. Of Education. AFT is strongly opposed to her. They vote tomorrow.🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
