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:
Ousted Obama official to speak on Trump’s Russia scandal, a new stage in the U.S. health care shenanigans, trying to put a lid on those speaking out against our illegitimate minority-elect President, Trump lied about his tax cut paying for itself, Trump’s egregious agenda could take a while to implement, our presidential twit takes to twitter – again – to deflect attention from his malfeasance, Trump’s delusional base holding firm but support from everyone else dropping based on most recent poll, Trumpcare advocates spend Sunday lying their way through political shows, Trump’s growing conflicts of interest – this time courtesy of his son-in-law, reports of Trump clashing with his National Security Adviser, Muslim ban language deleted from White House website after question from reporter, obsessing about the illegitimate dipshit in the White House distracts us from other serious issues Washington and the media don’t care for you to know about, the moral travesty of Trumpcare, Sean Spicer still lying his ignorant ass off, our Hustler-in-Chief is at it again and more.
