The federal government has accomplished virtually nothing since the Presidential election, especially on the Executive side. The President has spent all of his time having public meltdowns and screaming about non-existent voter fraud that he hasn’t done anything in terms of actual work.

Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.
