Tracking Trump: president threatens Comey, the ‘fake media’ and Democrats article from The Guardian. –
Mucho dipshittery has led to a very busy week that will not bode well for our illegitimate, minority-elect President.
James Clapper destroys Trump’s favorite talking point about the Russia investigation article from Think Progress. –
Clapper destroys our unpopular leader’s lies about there being no collusion between Trump and Russia.
Trump’s voter fraud commission is a shameless white power grab article from The Guardian. –
Given there were only 4 documented cases of attempted voter fraud – the majority of which were in Trump’s favor – in the 2016 elections, it’s obvious that Trump is attempting to begin early voter rigging and suppression for 2018.
After James Comey’s Firing, Who Will Stop Trump’s Tinpot Dictatorship? article from The Intercept. –
Questions about who will stop our wannabe dickless tator’s attempted subversion of his crimes:
““YOU’RE FIRED!” That’s what Donald Trump would bark from his boardroom chair at the end of each episode of “The Apprentice.” For years, millions of Americans would smile, laugh, and even cheer in front of their television sets as the property tycoon performed his signature move.
There is little to laugh about this week. The firing of FBI Director James Comey by President Trump will be remembered as a dark and depressing day in the downward spiral of American democracy. It’s difficult to disagree with the scathing assessment of CNN’s senior legal analyst, Jeffrey Toobin, who described the sacking as a “grotesque” abuse of power. “This is the kind of thing that goes on in non-democracies,” he told host Wolf Blitzer in a clip that has since, deservedly, gone viral. “They fire the people who are in charge of the investigation.” Toobin continued: “This is something that is not within the American political tradition. … This is not normal, this is not politics as usual.”
There is indeed nothing “normal” about removing the head of the FBI from his post less than four months into a new presidency — and an FBI boss who has been credited with delivering that president his election victory, against the odds. You have to go all the way back to 1993 to find the last — and only other — time a president (William J. Clinton) decided to dismiss his FBI chief (William S. Sessions). And the latter, unlike Comey, was accused of a long list of bizarre ethics violations including, as the Washington Post reported at the time, “charging the government for personal travel,” diverting FBI aircraft to pick up his wife, Alice Sessions, in other cities, and deploying FBI cars “to take her to get her nails done.”
Nor is there anything “normal” about an American president sending his long-standing head of private security, and former bodyguard, to hand-deliver a letter of termination to his FBI chief. There are tinpot dictators in Africa who would have avoided doing that simply in order to avoid giving the wrong impression. Tinpot Trump, however, didn’t care. (His brutish security chief, Keith Schiller, lest we forget, spent the presidential campaign smacking Latino protesters and manhandling Latino reporters on behalf of his boss.)…”
Trump at Liberty University bashes ‘critics’ in first commencement address article from AOL News. –
Staying true to form with the usual gibberish at his first commencement address. Trump keeps conveniently omitting the fact that the critics – the majority – far outnumber his delusional supporters and that he has no mandate when he gives his self-serving pep talks at his ‘speeches.’
