A Complete Analysis Of Trump’s 153rd Unpresidented Week As POTUS

President Trump spent his Christmas in a miserable state of mind after the House impeached him for his abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Trump’s first major typo after winning the election was spelling Unprecedented incorrectly. He infamously tweeted “Unpresidented.” This typo is emblematic of his administration: An impulsive, frantically thrown together group of characters with virtually no oversight. After Trump was sworn in, I started writing the weekly “Unpresidented” column, analyzing every day of his presidency. This is week 153.

This year ended like it began: with President Trump rage-tweeting into the void after being thoroughly outmatched by Speaker Pelosi.

2019 started with a government shutdown fight in which President Trump essentially launched a shakedown plot where he held federal workers and contractors hostage in his pursuit of the border wall. President Trump lost that fight to a disciplined Speaker Pelosi and Democratic Party who successfully moved public opinion against him.

2019 ended with President Trump enthralled in a scandal where he launched a literal shakedown plot against Ukraine by withholding $391 million in military aid in the pursuit of foreign election interference. President Trump got caught and lost the impeachment fight against a disciplined Speaker Pelosi and Democratic Party who successfully moved public opinion against him.

This week was relatively quiet in the White House aside from President Trump’s continued Twitter meltdown, from which he did not take days off on Christmas or Christmas Eve. On the congressional front, Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) made some noise when she said she is “disturbed” by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) impeachment trial coordination with the White House.

With the timing of when Speaker Pelosi will transmit Trump’s articles of impeachment to the Senate up in the air, we’re in for a volatile start to 2020.

Let’s dive into the final Unpresidented week of 2019.
