The “Everything Terrible Trump Has Done So Far” Omnibus (Week 127)

As part of the ongoing project to catalog every awful thing the Trump Administration has done as a reference for future political arguments and whatever few posterity survives to see 2020, here’s everything awful the Trump Administration has done this week.


1448. Continued separating migrant families at the border

1449. Drastically reduced enforcement of financial regulations

1450. A leaked document revealed that many top officials were found to have red flags when being vetted during the transition process

1451. Called “mentally retarded” by the President of Iran

1452. Ratcheted up tensions with Iran by introducing new sanctions

1453. It was revealed Attorney General Bill Barr killed 7 investigations into the Trump administration 10 days after the Mueller Report was released

1454. Accused of rape by author E. Jean Carroll, then dismissed the accusations by saying she's “not my type”

1455. With Trump's appointed judges providing the tie breaking votes, the Supreme court ruled to allow politically motivated gerrymandering

1456. The Supreme Court ruled that blood can be drawn from unconscious drivers

1457. Falsely accused the Mueller probe of breaking the law


There were a lot of accusations this week. Writer E. Jean Carroll accused Trump of rape, Iran accused Trump of being mentally retarded and Trump (wrongly) accused Mueller​​​​ of destroying evidence. How much will come of these accusations is yet to be seen, however the Trump administration left very permanent marks elsewhere. Namely, the stacked supreme court continued to hand out​​ rulings favorable to Trump and Republicans, this time voting to allow politically gerrymandered ​maps.

As always, I don’t expect to catch everything, so let me know if there’s anything you think I’ve missed. The full omnibus is being maintained here (a spreadsheet version can be found here). For an overall summary, click here.
