WELL, THAT’S WHAT HIS VOTERS ELECTED HIM TO DO: Beyond the daily drama and Twitter battles, Trump begins to alter American life.

Over his first nine months, Trump has used an aggressive series of regulatory rollbacks, executive orders and changes in enforcement guidelines to rewrite the rules for industries from energy to airlines, and on issues from campus sexual assault to anti-discrimination protections for transgender students.

While his administration has been chaotic, and his decision-making impulsive and sometimes whimsical, Trump has made changes that could have far-reaching and lingering consequences for society and the economy. Some have grabbed headlines but many, no less consequential, have gone largely unnoticed amid the daily controversies and Twitter insults that have marked Trump’s early months in office.

Unnoticed. Huh. Related: Scoop: Trump urges staff to portray him as “crazy guy.”

I just wish Phil Hartman was around to reprise his Reagan sketch. I don’t think Alec Baldwin’s up to it.
