'Many of Trumps Executive Orders are little more than grandiose press releases. The pompous flourish with which he promotes them, like nearly everything this president does, is an effort to create the perception of action when the reality is anything but. Putting style over substance had been the hallmark of Trump’s pre-political career. He has always been the Great Pretender. He pretended to be a real estate mogul,when he was basically franchising his name to real builders. He pretended to be a shrewd businessman when he drove his Atlantic City casinos into bankruptcy. He founded a university that pretended to let people in on his get-rich-quick secrets, but it turned out to be a fleecing operation. In short, he was as much a sham businessman as he is a sham president. His gift wasn’t business acumen but image acumen, creating an alternative reality not unlike alternative facts.'
