Misadventures of a minority-elect President 100

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:

The case for obstruction of justice just became easier to prove – much to our minority-elect president’s chagrin – as another report reveals he asked his Intel Chiefs to public deny his Russia ties – though to their credit they refused, Trump’s approval at lowest its been since Inauguration day, the WAPO and NYT urge resisting impeachment until Trump helps lose the GOP majority in Congress, what Trump’s supporters are wrong about in supporting his firing of Comey, Trump enabling more fraud for his Wall Street friends by killing Dodd-Frank, like her husband, Melania has issues with tweeting fake news and false information, the Trump cabal’s pandemic of lies, more on our National embarrassment’s speech in Saudi Arabia, Trump’s proposed budget gives the finger to those foolish enough to be conned by him, opening the door to more terrorism as U.S. takes Syria’s Al-Qaeda off terror watchlists and lots more.

Callan: Obstruction of justice case just took quantum leap article from Yahoo! News. –

Telling two Russian visitors that he had taken off the pressure of an FBI investigation – after sharing classified information with them – proves that Trump was obstructing justice.

Poll: Trump’s approval rating sinks to lowest point since Inauguration Day article from AOL News. –

Holding steady with a 38 percent approval rating isn’t boding well for our illegitimate, minority-elect President.

Washington Post and New York Times urge pullback on calls for Trump impeachment article from The World Socialist Web Site. –

The two biggest cheerleaders for ridding ourselves of our dimwitted dumb ass in the White House urge restraint until Trump completes blowing the GOP’s majority in both houses of Congress.

Who better to lecture Muslims than Islam expert Donald Trump? article from The Guardian. –

Allowing Trump to lecture anyone on anything is ridiculous, but allowing him to lecture on Islam is a joke:

“If there’s anything consistent about the Trump White House so far, it’s that people get appointed to positions for which they are totally unsuited. More than that: they’re frequently the worst possible candidates for the role. That starts with the president himself, of course – less presidential than your average radio phone-in ranter. It was evident in the appointment of Michael Flynn, a man allegedly in hock to the Russian state, as national security adviser; of multiple Goldman Sachs alumni to oversee financial regulation; and of Jeff Sessions, who regards the film Reefer Madness as accurate social commentary, as the top law-enforcement official in the land.

In the latest example, the Sessions acolyte Stephen Miller, one of the architects of Trump’s attempted Muslim ban, has been put in charge of winning over the Arab Muslim world. Miller was the principal author of a speech, delivered in Riyadh yesterday, in which the president said he wanted to “deliver a message of friendship and hope and love”. He went on to argue that the fight against terrorism was “a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life and … people who want to protect life and their religion”. Trump even shied away from the phrase he blasted Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for avoiding: “radical Islamic terrorism”.

The new approach is at odds with everything we know about Miller’s worldview, and that of his longtime supporter Steve Bannon. (Miller’s college-newspaper screeds about the war on Christmas are an entertaining study in one variety of radicalisation, if you can bear the grandiloquence.)

Almost all of Trump’s pronouncements on the subject stand in stark contrast to his words in Riyadh too (in October last year he condemned the Saudis as women-haters who “push gays … off buildings”. This weekend, he accepted a medal from their king)…”
