Misadventures of a minority-elect President 95

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:

Today’s misadventures of our illegitimate minority-elect president begin with Comey keeping record of his ‘improper’ phone calls and meetings with Trump whose GOP brown shirts don’t care about him giving classified info to Washington’s most recent frenemy Russia, a roundup of Trump’s current – growing – list of scandals, White House imploding as Trump’s shit storms create more controversies, it’s getting difficult to find Republicans to defend our impotent president on TV News and political theater shows, why our Liar-in-Chief is buried in self-created scandals, a short history of presidential obstruction of justice for our lackluster Liar-in-Chief, Trump holds whiny pity party press conference at U.S. Coast Guard graduation to bitch about the way he’s being treated in the media – the same media he used to bitch about his predecessor’s birth certificate conspiracy theory and much more.

Trump may or may not have his ‘tapes,’ but apparently Comey kept records of all their meetings – which will create more problems for our minority-elect President.

Trump’s brown shirts in Congress aren’t so keen on holding him accountable – as they were with Hillary Clinton – which speaks volume as to how corrupt our political establishment is.

Trump’s upcoming foreign trip should prove quite entertaining:

“It is not hard to imagine how much worse things will be when Trump meets with all those foreign leaders.

You didn’t have to be a political genius—or a genius of any kind, really—to see that Donald Trump was going to be a disaster at being president. He clearly has no interest in politics or policy and doesn’t understand, or care to understand, the basics of the job. The Trump platform consists of unbelievable and unconstitutional lies all bound up with racist pipe dreams about how to Make America 1952 Again. To call Trump a con man is to insult hardworking, skilled con men and women the world over. Trump just recognized easy marks when he saw them, and told them what they wanted to hear. And what they wanted to hear was that someone else’s suffering would help them get ahead.

That’s how we got here. Sixty-three million ignorant, desperate and delusional Americans voted for a man uniquely unqualified to be president. Predictably, Trump has mucked up the task at every turn. On the rare occasions he shows up to work instead of golfing, Trump screws up with a frequency that can’t be measured by any currently available metric.

In just this last week (and we’re only three days in, mind you) Trump has spilled intelligence to the Russians, proved he’s a real-life Ron Burgundy and generally made the lives of White House staffers miserable. (Although, how much sympathy can you have for someone whose dream is to work in the Trump White House?)…”

Eight days that shook Trump’s Washington article from The Hill. –
http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/333710-eight-days-that-shook-trumps-washington

“It was supposed to be a quiet week.

The White House had just earned its first legislative victory when the House voted to repeal and replace ObamaCare, and President Trump was gearing up for his first trip abroad since winning the White House.

Instead, the last eight days have been marked by rolling crises that have left Trump’s staff on edge, emboldened Democrats’ talk of impeachment, put the media in a frenzy and sent Republicans running scared.

Here’s a timeline of the eight days that shook Trump’s Washington:

Tuesday, May 9

The news hit the wire at about 5:40 p.m.

Trump had fired FBI Director James Comey, whose agency was investigating whether Trump campaign officials colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election…”

This is why Trump is buried in scandals, Art of the Deal ghostwriter explains article from The Week. –
http://theweek.com/speedreads/699491/why-trump-buried-scandals-art-deal-ghostwriter-explains

It appears that intelligence – or the lack thereof – has always been an issue for our Liar-in-Chief:

“President Trump is buried beneath such an enormous pile of scandals that onlookers likely can’t help but wonder if there is a teensy bit of self-sabotage at play. According to at least one person who worked intimately with Trump decades ago, the answer is yes.

The Art of the Deal ghostwriter Tony Schwartz wrote for The Washington Post that the way the president has behaved in the past week was “entirely predictable” if you look at his childhood:

[To survive,] Trump felt compelled to go to war with the world. It was a binary, zero-sum choice for him: You either dominated or you submitted. You either created and exploited fear or you succumbed to it — as he thought his older brother [who died an alcoholic at the age of 42] had. This narrow, defensive worldview took hold at a very early age, and it never evolved. “When I look at myself today and I look at myself in the first grade,” he told a recent biographer, “I’m basically the same.” His development essentially ended in early childhood. [The Washington Post]

Schwartz goes on to note that “over the past week, in the face of criticism from nearly every quarter, Trump’s distrust has almost palpably mushroomed.”…”

Trump expands Global Gag Rule, affecting nearly $9 billion in international aid article from Think Progress. –
https://thinkprogress.org/trump-global-gag-rule-6c4db375e8c2

The duplicitous ignorance of our Ignoramus-in-Chief at work as he says one thing and does another:

“So much for National Women’s Health Week.

On May 14th, President Donald Trump issued a statement in honor of National Women’s Health Week, pledging to “recognize the importance of providing women access to the best, evidence-based health information and care.”

Then, on May 15th, he announced a vast expansion of the Mexico City Policy, also known as the Global Gag Rule, which restricts women’s access to comprehensive health care around the globe and has previously been found to increase rates of unwanted pregnancy and unsafe abortion.

The Global Gag Rule is a Reagan-era policy that prohibits any U.S. funding for international family planning assistance from going to organizations that provides abortions, or even mention abortion as an option to their patients. It’s illegal for any U.S. aid money to go toward abortion care itself; what the global gag rule does is prevent these organizations from using even separate funding on abortion care or referrals, even if abortion is legal in their country…”

Enough of the whiny pity party already. There is a reason for that Mr. Minority-elect President: Take a long hard look in the mirror. The vast majority of it has to do with your thoroughly inept, profoundly corrupt actions.

The Hidden Bombshell in the Comey-Trump Story article from Common Dreams. –
https://www.commondreams.org/views/2017/05/17/hidden-bombshell-comey-trump-story

How to tell when a minority-elect President aspires to be a deviant dictator:

“The president didn’t just want the FBI to stop investigating his friend Mike Flynn. He wanted it to arrest journalists.

How can you tell an authoritarian when you see one? We know the 20th century hallmarks — brown shirts, street rallies, and the like. But there’s an autocratic attitude, some historians suggest, that can easily be traced across the centuries.

To put it simply, New York University professor Ruth Ben-Ghiat told Democracy Now recently, “authoritarians believe that institutions should serve them, and not the other way around.”

Just ask Jim Comey — who, as recently as October, might’ve been Donald Trump’s favorite person.

Less than two weeks before the November vote, the now-former FBI director announced that he was reopening an investigation into one of Trump’s favorite subjects: Hillary Clinton’s emails. For that, Trump praised Comey’s “guts,” while Clinton now blames Comey’s announcement for costing her the election…”
