Think Trump is an authoritarian? Look at his actions, not his words article from The Guardian. –
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/may/02/donald-trump-authoritarian-look-actions-not-words

Actions always speak louder than words, but few, if any – aside from himself – ever said he was smart:

“A wise psychoanalyst once told me, “Stop looking at what you’re saying, look at what you’re doing.” If only journalists applied the same rule to Donald Trump.

On Friday night, Trump complained that he was being stymied by “archaic rules” in the House of Representatives and the Senate and warned “maybe at some point we’re going to have to take those rules on.”

Aaron Blake, a journalist at The Washington Post, was quick to diagnose the statement:

Now Trump is talking about consolidating his power…Whether this is just him [Trump] blowing off steam or signaling what lies ahead, it’s significant. Because it suggests a president, yet again, who doesn’t agree with his own powers being limited or even questioned. Remember when senior policy adviser Stephen Miller declared “the powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned?” This is more of that kind of attitude. He wants more power — and he wants it quickly. It’s not difficult to connect this to his past admiration for authoritarian leaders, and these comments are likely to give Democrats (and even some in the GOP establishment) plenty of heartburn. This is a demonstrated pattern for him, for all the reasons listed at the top of this post…”

President Trump, smalltime crook article from The Week. –
http://theweek.com/articles/695370/president-trump-smalltime-crook

“We’re now more than 100 days into the Trump administration. We made it!

The darkest fears that President Trump was inaugurating a proto-fascist movement or would literally destroy the world have not panned out. But neither has his vaunted self-presentation as a ruthless negotiator and capable businessman. He is only really good at one thing: enriching himself and his family with sleazy small-bore schemes.

When Trump first took office, and started issuing extremely aggressive anti-immigrant executive orders, it was alarming indeed. Coupled to his pro-welfare and pro-worker campaign, it seemed like he was groping towards the basic fascist formula of roaring economic populism for white people plus vicious bigotry toward immigrants and minorities.

But then he ran into a blizzard of legal headaches and massive popular outrage. And while Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers are still brutalizing people across the country, and the federal bureaucracy has become even more of a hellish nightmare for immigrants, Trump appears to have rather forgotten about the immigrant question. Legal issues before a new version of the order are still pending, and are probably insurmountable due to how many times Trump loudly promised he was going to ban Muslim entry into the country. He’s also abandoned the idea of getting funding for a border wall in the upcoming spending bill…”

White House: Government Shutdown Possible If Democrats Keep Hurting Trump’s Feelings article from The Huffington Post. –
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-government-shutdown_us_5908cc29e4b0bb2d087277b5

Awww. Poor baby:

“Weird. Trump doesn’t like it when people spike the football.

WASHINGTON ? If the government shuts down in September, the White House is already saying it will be the Democrats’ fault ? because they had the audacity to hurt President Donald Trump’s feelings.

On Sunday, congressional negotiators came up with a plan to avert a shutdown this week and keep the government up and running through September. With the Republican caucus so divided, its members had to work with Democrats to figure out a bill that could pass. As a result, there is no funding for Trump’s border wall and no reductions in funding to “sanctuary cities.” There is, however, more domestic spending, protections for Planned Parenthood funding and money for Affordable Care Act subsidies.

Democrats have made clear that they are very happy with the spending deal and that they, not Trump, are the winners. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called it a “defeat” for Trump, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) gloated, “I think we had a strategy and it worked.”…”

‘Sociopath’: Trump Cabinet Secretary Calls US Bombing of Syria ‘After-Dinner Entertainment’ article from Common Dreams. –
https://www.commondreams.org/news/2017/05/02/sociopath-trump-cabinet-secretary-calls-us-bombing-syria-after-dinner-entertainment

Joking about war crimes justified by a false flag fairy tale is quite revealing:

“It was in lieu of after-dinner entertainment,” declared Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross. “The thing was, it didn’t cost the president anything to have that entertainment.”

Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross is under fire—with one journalist characterizing it as the behavior of a ‘sociopath’—following crude remarks made Monday in which he described the U.S. bombing of Syria as “after-dinner entertainment” at President Donald Trump’s private Mar-A-Lago estate while hosting Chinese President Xi Jinping last month.

“Just as dessert was being served, the president explained to Mr. Xi he had something he wanted to tell him, which was the launching of 59 missiles into Syria,” Ross said Monday during a speech at the Milken Institute Conference in Beverly Hills, California. “It was in lieu of after-dinner entertainment. The thing was, it didn’t cost the president anything to have that entertainment.”

According to Variety, which first reported the comments, some members of the audience responded with laughter…”
