Buffalo State Trump's First 100 Days program. For my piece of it I ended up inviting the Hon. Lawrence Vilardo, of the Federal District Court for the Western District of New York to address the class on his experience with the judicial appointment process. It was exceedingly generous of him to do this, and the evening was far more interesting than it would have been had I spoken about Neil Gorsuch. As it happens, the appointment of Justice Gorsuch, whose first official act was to approve the execution of some poor bastard in Arkansas, is the sole thing that President Trump has accomplished to date. I wonder how many Republicans are able to concede this?
