Misadventures of a minority-elect President 106

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:

And so our dimwitted dumb shit’s propaganda parade begins as he throws another twitter tantrum over his escalating Russia scandal. When Trump bitches about fake news to create fake news, the only ones delusional enough to believe it are the minority that voted for him:

“WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Sunday that many of the leaks from the White House were “fake news,” following reports his son-in-law tried to set up a secret channel of communications with Moscow before Trump took office.

Trump returned to the White House after a nine-day trip to the Middle East and Europe that ended on Saturday to face more questions about alleged communications between his son-in-law Jared Kushner and Russia’s ambassador to Washington.

“It is my opinion that many of the leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media,” Trump wrote in a series of Twitter posts on Sunday.

Kushner, who is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka, had contacts with Moscow in December about opening a secret back channel of communications, according to news reports published while Trump was away on his trip…”

Schiff: Anyone working for Trump ‘at risk of being used’ article from The Hill. –

On how anyone working for our Liar-in-Chief is at risk when reality destroys his land of delusion:

“The ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee on Sunday said any individual working for the Trump administration is “at risk of being used.”

“Anyone within the Trump orbit is at risk of being used,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) told ABC’s “This Week.” He appeared to be speaking specifically about Trump’s national security adviser, who recently spoke to the possibility that additional members of Trump’s administration were having secret talks with Russia.

Schiff, who is co-leading the investigation into Russia’s meddling in the United States election, had previously been discussing national security adviser H.R. McMaster and his response to recent reports that White House adviser Jared Kushner sought a secret channel to communicate with the Kremlin.

McMaster, following the report, said he was “not concerned” about the backchannel communications…”

Trump’s ‘election’ reveals how dysfunctional America really is:

“He’s huge. Outsized. He fills the news hole at any moment of any day. His over-tanned face glows unceasingly in living rooms across America. Never has a president been quite so big. So absolutely monstrous. Or quite so small.

He’s our Little Big Man.

I know, I know… he induces panic, fear, anxiety, insomnia. Shrinks in liberal America will tell you that, since November 2016, their patients are more heavily medicated and in worse shape. He’s a nightmare, a unique monster. It’s been almost two years since he first entered the presidential race and in all that time I doubt there’s been a moment when the cameras haven’t been trained on him, when he wasn’t “breaking news.” (By May 2016, he had already reportedly received the equivalent in “earned media” of nearly $3 billion in free advertising.) He and his endless controversial statements, flubs, tweets, lies, insults, boasts, tales from outer space, and over-the-moon adjectives are covered daily the way, once upon a time, only Pearl Harbor or the Kennedy assassination was.

Think of him as the end of the world as we, or maybe anyone, including Vladimir Putin, knew it. To me, that means one thing, even though most of you won’t agree: I think we owe Donald Trump a small bow of thanks and a genuine debt of gratitude. He’s teaching us something invaluable, something we probably wouldn’t have grasped without him. He’s teaching us just how deeply disturbed our American world actually is, or he wouldn’t be where he is…”

More on giving numb nuts in the White House enough rope to hang himself:

“Donald Trump biographers Gwenda Blair and Tim O’Brien, alongside ABC News correspondent Tom Llamas, joined ABC’s Martha Raddatz on Sunday to discuss how little the president has changed from decades past.

“He is exactly the same guy,” Blair, author of The Trumps: Three Generations of Builders and a President, told Raddatz on “This Week.”

“He’s 70 years old,” Llamas pointed out. “And for the better part of his adult life, he’s never had a boss. He’s always been the boss, so he’s never had to listen to anybody.”

Llamas argued that “right now,” no matter “how great a tactician, how brilliant a political scientist walks into the Oval Office, whatever they tell Donald Trump, he’s going to do what he wants.”…”

What Secretary of Education Betsy Devos Calls Education Transformation Is Actually Public Theft article from AlterNet. –
http://www.alternet.org/education/devos-education-transformation-actually-public-theft

On the ongoing Private Education Con job from Betsy DeVos – our impotent leader’s Secretary of Education:

“Betsy DeVos wants to give your tax dollars to private schools and businesses and tell you it’s an education “transformation.”

That’s the main theme of an address she gave this week to a conference held by the organization she helped found and lead, the American Federation for Children.

Declaring “the time has expired for ‘reform,’” she called instead for a “transformation… that will open up America’s closed and antiquated education system.” Her plan also opens your wallet to new moochers of taxpayer dollars.

By the way, AFC, according to SourceWatch, is a “conservative 501(c)(4) dark money group that promotes the school privatization agenda via the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and other avenues.” It also grew out of a defunct PAC connected to DeVos called “All Children Matter” that ran afoul legally in Ohio and Wisconsin and still owes Ohio $5.3 million for breaking election laws…”
