Whoa, a few seem to be there specifically to provoke angry responses.

Removed a bike-sharing station at the White House.

Reversed a rule that would ban gun sales to those deemed “mentally defective” by the government.

Rescinded a rule mandating that rising sea levels be considered when building public infrastructure in flood-prone areas.

None of those would bother the average conservative Republican.

#1) "Those bicycles ought to be outlawed. They don't belong on the streets endangering drivers."

#2) "How do we know who the gummint is gonna say is mentally defective?"

#3) There's already been more than one conservative Republican state legislature (I'm looking at you, NC) that has gone to the opposite extreme, forbidding by state statute the consideration of projected sea level rise for any state project planning.
"It never does just what I want, but only what I tell it."
"A great deal of intelligence can be invested in ignorance when the need for illusion is deep."
"Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened."
