The 'Trumpzilla' Of The Campaign Trail Has Dwindled Into 'President Snowflake'

The president has changed from “Trumpzilla” into a “snowflake” since taking office, and is looking “increasingly bizarre,” CNN commentator Van Jones declared Thursday night.

According to The Huffington Post, the liberal political pundit accused Donald Trump of abandoning his aggressive style of campaigning for president for a much more reserved approach. “When he ran he was this tough guy, this guy who’s going to get things done, this great negotiator,” Jones told CNN host Anderson Cooper. “He was Trumpzilla. He was going to make Washington bow down. He was going to drain the swamp. Now he’s President Snowflake. Everything he says, ‘Oh, they’re mean to me, and they don’t like me, and I just don’t understand it and it’s not fair.’”

The commentator likely was referring to Trump’s commencement address Wednesday. The president told his audience of Coast Guard Academy cadets: “Look at the way I’ve been treated lately, especially by the media. No politician in history — and I say this with great surety — has been treated worse or more unfairly.” He blasted “the critics and the naysayers” who have been lambasting the administration because of the scandal about Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion. He insisted that he has “accomplished a tremendous amount in a very short time as president.”

Jones, who heads The Dream Corps and hosts CNN’s “The Messy Truth,” is a frequent critic of Trump. In a recent op-ed for CNN, he accused the president of having “signed a death warrant for our planet.”

“As usual, Donald Trump is completely upside down on the facts,” Jones wrote. “In 2015, President Barack Obama created the Clean Power Plan to slow climate disruption. It was the first action ever taken by the U.S. government to cut carbon pollution from existing power plants. … With the stroke of a pen, President Trump directed the Environmental Protection Agency to take steps to end it. Trump may have just signed a death warrant for our planet, at least for a planet that is livable for humans. And the lies he told to justify it have real consequences for real Americans, here and now.”

The pundit explained that Trump had described the Clean Power Plan as a set of “job-killing regulations.” Jones claimed that is “false” because “limited losses in some sectors are dwarfed by gains in others.” He wrote that “the potential for job growth in the clean-energy sector dwarfs any potential job growth in the fossil fuel economy.”
