It's hard to believe, but it's already been a month since Donald Trump was sworn in as president. With so many leaks, scandals, and scary decisions coming out of the White House, it's been hard to keep track of everything, but the photos of Trump's first month as president serve as a helpful, and totally terrifying, reminder of what's already transpired.
Trump's first month in the White House was, to put it mildly, a sh*t show. From the multiple high-level firings and resignations, to the leaks coming out of the administration like the Hoover Dam, it's been a tough month to watch as an American citizen. It's felt a little bit like watching a forest fire start, knowing that the beginning is this bad, and it's only going to get worse. The photo evidence doesn't make that any easier to process, but at least it's a way to hold Trump accountable.
Although many speculate that Trump won't survive his full term, the small silver lining in this month-aversary is that there are only 47 left. The resistance to his administration is coming along nicely, and it's only a matter of time until he either gets repealed or replaced. Until then, use these photos to remind yourself of why exactly Trump's got to go.
