KING: Trump hasn't done anything he promised in first 100 days


It’s starting to look like we should sue Donald Trump for breach of contract. Early Friday, Trump wrote a whiny tweet complaining about the “ridiculous standard of the first 100 days” and how no matter what he did during these first three months, the media would “kill” him over it.

Except Trump himself, in a widely covered moment in his campaign, just weeks before the election, issued a plan, he called it a “contract” actually, on all that he guaranteed he would accomplish in his first 100 days in office.

In the title of the contract, in the closing of the contract, he ensured that he would introduce 10 sweeping pieces of legislation that would set him apart and restore the government back to the people.

Guess how much of it he has accomplished? Most of it? Nah. Half of it? Nah. Some of it? Nah, Any of it? Nah.

He’s accomplished none of it — none of it at all.

Maybe he has problems with his memory? Maybe he lies so much that he sincerely can’t keep up with the sheer volume of lies he’s told? Maybe Co-President Bannon actually wrote the plan for Trump’s first 100 days in office and Trump never even knew it existed?

Whatever the case, the media or the masses didn’t impose this “ridiculous standard” on Trump of what he’d get done in his first 100 days in office — he did that. He set that bar where he set it and by his own standards, he has failed and failed miserably.

He has breached his contract with the American people — which is about the most Donald Trump thing Donald Trump could ever do. Just weeks ago a judge upheld the ruling for Trump to pay $25 million back to the people he defrauded through Trump University for not upholding his contract with them.

This is who Trump is — all golf and no action. Not that it is surprising, but the man is clearly in way over his head and has no earthly idea what he’s doing.

He is floundering around, getting nothing done, falling back on his own basic commitments, and it now seems he can’t even remember making them.

I would laugh if it was all a big joke, but it isn’t. What this man does and doesn’t do actually matters, but he is fundamentally clueless.

More than ever, I’m convinced if someone could run against him tomorrow, anyone at all, that a huge percentage of the 63 million people who were duped into voting for this man would go in a new direction.

Four years sure is a long time.
