Misadventures of a minority-elect President 54

Chronicling the misadventures of our minority-elect President’s alternate reality, alternative facts and the miscreants that comprise his administration so you don’t have to:

Taking inexperienced family members and putting them in unprecedented positions of reckless power, turning his Obama wiretapping fairy tale up a notch, Trump is rapidly becoming a national embarrassment – even to those that voted for him, Trump dubbed as Conspiracy Theorist-in-Chief, the White House refuses to turn over documents it promised to turnover for investigation, Trump to overturn more Obama regulations and put the public at risk by decree, too many Trump disasters to count, how the Koch brothers won the White House, Trump’s failing foreign policy, China is now more popular than Trump among Americans, internal Civil war fracturing Trump’s already flailing White House, thinking of an illegal Syrian invasion over alleged sarin gas attack – with no investigation into what happened or evidence – to produce more refugees that he will refuse to let enter the U.S., Trump just became an official War Criminal with illegal airstrike in Syria, GOP cheats to advance ‘Trump’s corrupt agenda,’ the U.S. Senate should censure our Caligula with orange hair and more.

The perfect example of the nepotism and corruption that is the Trump brand.

Trump just turned his Obama wiretapping conspiracy theory up to 11 article from the Washington Post. –
https://www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/news/the-fix/wp/2017/04/05/trump-just-bet-the-farm-on-his-wiretapping-conspiracy-theory-and-still-provided-no-evidence/

“President Trump has yet to provide or unearth proof that the Obama administration targeted him with surveillance, more than a month after initially making the stunning claim.

But that’s apparently not going to prevent him from making even more extraordinary and evidence-free claims about the matter.

Trump spoke with the New York Times on Wednesday and went all-in on his claim that the Obama White House used its surveillance and national security powers against him. Trump accused former national security adviser Susan E. Rice, who was reported this week to have unmasked the names of Trump associates in intelligence reports, of having committed a crime, without providing evidence. He also suggested that other Obama administration officials were involved in the conspiracy, without providing evidence…”

Too Many Donald Trump Disasters to Count article from the Daily Beast. –
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2017/04/05/too-many-donald-trump-disasters-to-count.html

“Any one of these would be a Benghazi-level disaster for a president who hadn’t won the office by defining disgusting down.

It happened again this week. In fact it happens nearly every day, and it’s one of the most infuriating things about this infuriating era.

On Monday, three stories came out that under any other president, certainly under Barack Obama, would have been three-day mini-scandals—at least. But under Trump, they’re either so dwarfed by the running narratives (Russia; shambolic White House; tweets) or so unsurprising coming from him that it’s hard not to just shake our heads and move on.

These little scandals drive home to me what may be the single starkest lesson of these first 70-whatever days of Trump: that the right-wing media has enormous agenda-setting power in this country…”

U.S. Conducts First Direct Military Strike Against Assad Regime In Syria article from the Huffington Post. –

Our minority-elect President just conducted an illegal air strike in Syria:

“President Trump warned Thursday that “something should happen” in response to the use of poison gas on civilians.

The U.S. military launched its first direct attack at the Syrian government on Thursday, marking an escalation of American involvement in the country’s six-year civil war.

After two days of deliberation, President Donald Trump authorized the military to launch approximately 50 cruise missiles at Shayrat Air Base in Syria, The Washington Post reported Thursday night. The move was conducted in retaliation for a chemical weapon attack in the opposition-held town of Khan Sheikhoun on Tuesday, allegedly carried out by Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime. The chemical weapon attack killed at least 70 people, a U.S. official told Reuters.

“Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women and children,” Trump said Thursday at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. “Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered at this very barbaric attack. No child of God should ever suffer such horror.”…”

“President Donald Trump is reportedly exploring options for a new military intervention in Syria following this week’s horrific chemical attack—believed to have been carried out by embattled president Bashar al-Assad —which left scores of civilians dead.

On Wednesday, Trump decried the attack on “innocent people including women, small children, and even beautiful little babies,” describing it as “an affront to humanity” and insisting that “these heinous actions by the Assad regime cannot be tolerated.”

The attack “crosses many, many lines,” Trump said.

The harsh language comes just days after an apparent attempt by the White House to downplay the administration’s opposition to Assad’s continued grip on power…”
