As the media spun their wheels trying to find a way to pretend that first Trump not going but then going was somehow a bad thing (and a story), it became painfully clear that no matter what Trump does these same people are going to find a way to complain about him.
Nothing he’ll ever do will ever be right, or good enough.
To be fair though, any Republican who won in 2016 would likely be facing at least some of this nonsense, and Hale Razor summed it up perfectly:
You know a Republican's in the White House if POTUS pays a surprise Christmastime Iraq visit to our troops, the stock market breaks a single-day record, but the big news is gossip about a 1968 foot exam.

Just look at Yahoo’s homepage for example.

They’re so damn predictable.
So sill no Russian collusion? We are on to bone spurs in the 60s.

One time Trump looked at someone funny on the street and hurt their feelings … we’re sure CNN will have an entire panel discussion on how that makes him literally Hitler.
Well, in fairness, they did try to make a non-visit story until it was discovered that the visit happened.

And then they accused him of using the troops as a prop.
As we said, the guy can’t win.

HA HA HA HA
Hale’s tweet made some people cranky though too:
As if all three weren’t covered extensively. Your assertion is as accurate as a claim that armed services members hadn’t had a pay raise in 10 years. In other words, a lie.

Blah blah blah blah blah.
Really? A friend took us out to eat. The news was on. What it talked about was that visit and the situation with the government currently shut down and his demand of 5,000,000,000 for a wall before he'll sign to reopen it.

They have friends? Who knew?
"Surprise visit" because he shut down the government and couldn't play golf. "Stock Market" bounce back from the worst December since the Depression, and yes, we now find out the COWARD didn't even have bone spurs? It is as you say, A REPUBLICAN in the WH.

Like we said, so damn predictable.
