Apparently, Donald Trump had nothing better to do so he ordered his minions to stack some paper and put some red tape on it so he could cut it.
You know, because Trump is a f*cking five-year-old child.
On Thursday, Trump delivered a speech on cutting regulations and then made a spectacle of it by stacking a ton of paper to represent the number of rules and regulations in the present day compared to a smaller stack representing 1960. Before cutting the tape with gold scissors, Trump promises to deregulate to the point where the stacks of paper are reduced to less than the number in 1960.
In 1960, there were approximately 20,000 pages in the Code of Federal Regulations. Today there are over 185,000 pages, as seen in the Roosevelt Room.

So, Trump literally wants to take America back to pre-1960. The would deregulate so much that we might as well declare anarchy. Because who needs a clean environment, safe food and water, worker safety, speed limits, poison control standards, safe roads and bridges, building codes, and many other regulations that keep America out of the dark ages anyway?
Trump’s deregulation ceremony was so ridiculous that Twitter mercilessly mocked him.
We only need one page to make America great again. Your resignation letter.

You aren't the President for all of us. You are the President for the top 1%.

Yeah, who needs safety regulations anyway? A little pesticide in the drinking water never hurt anyone. Right?

Five million trees existed before you printed all of that crap out.

Seriously, someone take those scissors away from him before someone gets hurt.
