It has been a big 72 hours for the Trump administration.
It started with the blow that President Trump had picked John Bolton to be his National Security Adviser. It progressed from there to the total sellout in the omnibus. The cherry on top of the MAGA shit sundae this weekend was cucking on gun control and banning bump stocks:
“(WASHINGTON) — President Donald Trump says his administration will “BAN” bump stock devices that “turn legal weapons into illegal machines.”
The Justice Department announced Friday that it has started the process to amend federal firearms regulations to clarify that federal law defines bump stocks as machine guns. …”
Obama Administration legalized bump stocks. BAD IDEA. As I promised, today the Department of Justice will issue the rule banning BUMP STOCKS with a mandated comment period. We will BAN all devices that turn legal weapons into illegal machine guns.

There is something to piss off nearly everyone over the last few weeks: economic populists who had to swallow the steel and aluminum tariff exemptions and Larry Kudlow as Trump’s top economic adviser, free speech advocates who saw President Trump dismiss their cause entirely, social conservatives who saw Planned Parenthood get funded in the omnibus, border hawks who realized they were pumped and dumped by the MAGA movement, gun owners who saw Republican opposition to gun control crumble, “America First” isolationists who saw Congress fund a war machine just in time for the appointments of neocons John Bolton and Mike Pompeo, fiscal hawks who had to swallow $1.3 trillion in spending, etc. The Jewish interest and the military interest are satisfied though.
