Dem senator complains, ‘this is not the presidency we were promised’

Democrat Sen. Tammy Duckworth of Illinois hammered President Donald Trump on Friday for not keeping his promises, but is anyone listening?

“Let’s be honest, this is not the presidency we were promised,” she said in the weekly Democrat address on YouTube.

“Americans deserve a president whose word they can trust, but the number of broken promises are adding up quickly,” she said not one month into the presidency.

What is she paying attention too?

Since his inauguration, the president kept his promise to secure our borders by issuing a travel ban that was put on hold by activist judges.

He nominated a conservative judge, Neil Gorsuch, to the Supreme Court in the mold of Antonin Scalia, enacted a five-year ban on White House officials lobbying, cut regulations damaging to businesses, approved the Keystone pipeline, pulled America out of the Trans Pacific Partnership and saved the coal industry, to name a handful.

But Duckworth continued the same, old Democrat talking points.

“We can and must do better. Senate Democrats believe we need officials at every level of government capable of doing their jobs,” the senator said.

“Despite the president’s promise to ‘drain the swamp,’ he has selected senior advisers and Cabinet officials who are unqualified, poorly vetted and ethically challenged — many are his old Wall Street friends.”

Duckworth trumpeted the same “what did he know and when did he know it” line on officials from the Trump administration, particularly about Gen. Mike Flynn being in contact with Russian officials during the campaign.

And she called for an independent investigation into such activities.

But does anyone care?

The video has been on YouTube for a day and has not even 400 people have watched it as of this story.
