On Jan. 20 around noon, the America that we knew and liked enough to kick it with died. Former President Barack Obama loosened his tie and began windsurfing, and Russia’s play cousin, Vladimir TrumPutin, officially took office as president of the United States. On April 29, Trump reached his first 100 days in office, so The Root wanted to take a look back at the dictator in chief’s first 100 days in the White House:

Senior Editor @ The Root, boxes outside my weight class, when they go low, you go lower.

While people may dismiss the significance of the 100 day mark as completely arbitrary, I consider it to be the end of the unofficial have period where a new President can blame things on his incumbent. By then, a new President has had more than enough time to get a handle on the office of the presidency to have the training wheels come off.
