Misadventures of a minority-elect President 104

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:

Expect more entertaining dipshittery from our illegitimate, minority-elect President during the G7 Summit after his NATO escapades, Trump is the antithesis of Christian values, dubiously trying to tuck language into his egregiously delusional ‘budget’ allowing his administration to defund sanctuary cities, Trump’s NSA Chief admits – to his workers – that Trump colluded with Russia as the scandal hits closer to home for our Obstructionist-in-Chief, prepare for yet another propaganda parade from our illegitimate numb nut and his White House when he returns from his farcical foreign escapades, trying to cover up his lies by destroying information, making himself look guilty by pressuring top U.S. officials to back down, the political theater that is Trump’s fake war on fake news, Breitbart sinking with the titanic disaster that is the Trump Cabal, Trumps war on the minions that voted for him is just beginning and a lot more.

Unless the summit can tone things down to a 4th grader’s level so Trump can comprehend comprehend everything, it could get interesting.

On Trump being the antithesis of Christian values:

“The contrast between a grim-faced pope and the grinning president at the Vatican this past week was not lost on the press or late-night TV. But they missed the mark, it seems to me. They noted merely that the two leaders profoundly disagree on, say, the dignity of immigrants, the sanctity of heterosexual marriage, or the urgency of tackling climate change. While these disagreements exist, they are, it seems to me, merely symptoms of a deeper chasm — the vast, empty, and dark space that lies between Donald Trump and anything resembling Christianity.

I don’t believe that there is a Christian politics as such — there is plenty of scope for disagreement about how to translate a Christian worldview into secular politics, or whether to translate it at all. But I do believe there is a Christian set of core human virtues and values, rooted in what we Catholics still think of as the truth, and that those virtues are rooted in the Gospels. We all fail the virtue test, of course, including yours truly, perhaps more than most. But Trump is a special case — because when you think about those virtues, it is very hard to see Donald Trump as anything but a living, breathing, shameless refutation of every single one.

Trump is not an atheist, confident yet humble in the search for a God-free morality. He is not an agnostic, genuinely doubtful as to the meaning of existence but always open to revelation should it arrive. He is not even a wayward Christian, as he sometimes claims to be, beset by doubt and failing to live up to ideals he nonetheless holds. The ideals he holds are, in fact, the antithesis of Christianity — and his life proves it. He is neither religious nor irreligious. He is pre-religious. He is a pagan. He makes much more sense as a character in Game of Thrones, a medieval world bereft of the legacy of Jesus of Nazareth, than as a president of a modern, Western country…”
