SLATE: Who had the better first 100 days: William Henry Harrison, who died, or Trump?




Who had the better first 100 days?

Trump’s first three months have been marked by the failure of major initiatives, an embarrassing public obsession with indefensible allegations against Obama, and historically low approval ratings. Harrison had a promising few weeks and then died, which is bad, but also precluded the possibility that he’d screw anything up as badly as Trump has screwed up the Obamacare repeal. Harrison did defend slavery, which is unforgivable; on the other hand, Trump regularly retweets white supremacists and doesn’t seem to know who Frederick Douglass was. The victory thus goes to Harrison.

Harrison, as it happens, was the scion of a wealthy coastal family who’d received an elite education and lived in luxury but was sold to supporters, during his campaign, as a rough-hewn straight-talker who emblemized the values of the rural common man. Stupid 1800s voters! We’d never fall for something like that again!

Funny tweet I saw.

2. Trump would probably just resign...

if he couldn't hold campaign style rallies to boost his self esteem.

We all know the Whitehouse correspondents dinner tonight, will be too much for his thin skin!
