After nibbling on a hopeful message Tuesday night, the president quickly spit it out, saying, “That’s way too sweet for me.”

alling his address to Congress on Tuesday night “too sane, traditional, and dull to get anyone’s heart rate racing,” President Trump announced that he’d be resuming his dismantling of democratic institutions, daily threats against allies, and attacks on the press immediately.

The president said that Carryn Owens’ tears “were good for ratings, but in the long run you can’t run a successful authoritarian government on sentimentality.”

“All that restraint and namby-pamby talk about reconciliation, that just wasn’t me, that was Jared’s nice Jewish boy stuff,” said the president. “I’m really more of a hard-edged, set the whole government on fire kind of president. That’s my comfort zone, my wheelhouse. I gotta be me.”

Republicans, moderate Democrats, and much of the American public initially expressed relief after the president’s address, hoping that a more optimistic vision for the country, focused on reaching across party lines and uniting America, might prevail in the days ahead.

But just hours after he spoke, the president seemed to reverse course on much of the promising, conciliatory language of his speech.

The president was very happy with how good his hair looked from behind during his speech.

“I want to get back to ripping affordable health care away from the millions of low income Americans who really need it,” said Mr. Trump. “And how can I put a stop to the arrest of thousands of illegals when TV footage of immigration officers slamming third world heads against the hoods of INS vehicles is getting such huge ratings? It’s just not possible.”

Mr. Trump added that in the future, Mr. Kushner would be relegated to soothing Semite critics of his administration, while top advisers Stephen “Cyborg” Miller and Steve “Crazy-As-A-Mother-Fucker” Bannon would resume their roles as his principal, “Black Death” speech writing team.
