Misadventures of a minority-elect President 122

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 man-boy delinquent begins with news of voters trusting major media outlets more than our incompetent Liar-in-Chief, Trump’s delusional tirades are catching up to him, info on Trump’s first Orwellian cabinet meeting – Trump’s alternate reality that was filled with lies – and the demented delusions it entailed, more on the national embarrassment that is our president and the damage he is inflicting on our country, why Republicans keep letting the profoundly corrupt, dimwitted dip shit in the White House making them look foolish, Trump’s miscreantic Attorney General suddenly develops amnesia during his Senate hearing, the fact that Trump has lost all touch of reality has become blatantly obvious in less than six months, wondering why our War Criminal-in-Chief – who is in Syria illegally – is killing Syrians that are fighting ISIS and much more.

If Republicans lose the House, Trump will be impeached article from The Los Angeles Times. –
http://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-goldberg-impeach-trump-house-20170613-story.html

Trump’s brown shirts in Congress won’t be able to protect our popular vote losing president for much longer:

“The 1998 midterm election was a debacle for Republicans, particularly then-Speaker Newt Gingrich. Since Reconstruction, no president had seen his party gain seats in the House in a midterm election six years into his presidency. Gingrich, who made the election a referendum on impeaching President Clinton, resigned after the loss. Clearly the voters had sent the signal, “Don’t do it.”

The White House thought it had dodged a bullet. But one morning, over Thanksgiving break, then-White House Chief of Staff John Podesta was running in Washington’s Rock Creek Park when it hit him: GOP leaders are “not going to let their members off the hook. They’re going to beat and beat and beat on them until they vote for impeachment.”

It fell to Podesta to tell the still-celebrating White House staff that the midterms meant nothing, the push to impeach the president in the House was a runaway train that could not be derailed. “This thing is rigged,” Podesta announced at a Monday morning staff meeting. “We are going to lose.”

President Trump’s White House could use a John Podesta about now. Because no one seems to have told them that the Democrats are every bit as committed to impeaching Trump as the GOP was to impeaching Clinton. The difference, of course, is that the Democrats don’t control the House — yet…”

Making your cabinet praise you and lying your ass off shows how demented our impotent Loser-in-Chief has become:

“WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump showed off a few too many trophies in his display Cabinet.

Trump opened part of a Cabinet meeting to the press Monday and filled that time with self-congratulation as well as praise from his team. On multiple fronts, that celebration of achievement was unearned.

A sampling of his comments:

—”Great success, including MS-13. They’re being thrown out in record numbers and rapidly. And they’re being depleted. They’ll all be gone pretty soon.”

THE FACTS: There’s no publicly available information to back up Trump’s claim that this violent gang is about to disappear…”

‘America Last’: Will Trump Set a Record for the History Books? article from TruthOut / Tom Dispatch. –
http://www.truth-out.org/opinion/item/40919-america-last-will-trump-set-a-record-for-the-history-books

On the disastrous, illegitimate, minority-elect president that is our national embarrassment:

“In its own inside-out, upside-down way, it’s almost wondrous to behold. As befits our president’s wildest dreams, it may even prove to be a record for the ages, one for the history books. He was, after all, the candidate who sensed it first. When those he was running against, like the rest of Washington’s politicians, were still insisting that the United States remained at the top of its game, not an — but the — “indispensable nation,” the only truly “exceptional” one on the face of the Earth, he said nothing of the sort. He campaigned on America’s decline, on this country’s increasing lack of exceptionality, its potential dispensability. He ran on the single word “again” — as in “make America great again” — because (the implication was) it just isn’t anymore. And he swore that he and he alone was the best shot Americans, or at least non-immigrant white Americans, had at ever seeing the best of days again.

In that sense, he was our first declinist candidate for president and if that didn’t tell you something during the election season, it should have. No question about it, he hit a chord, rang a bell, because out in the heartland it was possible to sense a deepening reality that wasn’t evident in Washington. The wealthiest country on the planet, the most militarily powerful in the history of… well, anybody, anywhere, anytime (or so we were repeatedly told)… couldn’t win a war, not even with the investment of trillions of taxpayer dollars, couldn’t do anything but spread chaos by force of arms.

Meanwhile, at home, despite all that wealth, despite billionaires galore, including the one running for president, despite the transnational corporate heaven inhabited by Google and Facebook and Apple and the rest of the crew, parts of this country and its infrastructure were starting to feel distinctly (to use a word from another universe) “Third Worldish.” He sensed that, too. He regularly said things like this: “We spent six trillion dollars in the Middle East, we got nothing… And we have an obsolete plane system. We have obsolete airports. We have obsolete trains. We have bad roads. Airports.” And this: “Our airports are like from a third-world country.” And on the nation’s crumbling infrastructure, he couldn’t have been more on the mark.

In parts of the US, white working-class and middle-class Americans could sense that the future was no longer theirs, that their children would not have a shot at what they had had, that they themselves increasingly didn’t have a shot at what they had had. The American Dream seemed to be gaining an almost nightmarish sheen, given that the real value of the average wage of a worker hadn’t increased since the 1970s; that the cost of a college education had gone through the roof and the educational debt burden for children with dreams of getting ahead was now staggering; that unions were cratering; that income inequality was at a historic high; and… well, you know the story, really you do. In essence, for them the famed American Dream seemed ever more like someone else’s trademarked property.

Indispensable? Exceptional? This country? Not anymore. Not as they were experiencing it…”

Donald Trump’s boasts about accomplishments in office ring hollow article from PolitiFact. –
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2017/jun/13/donald-trump/donald-trumps-boasts-about-accomplishments-office-/

As usual our lackluster Liar-in-Chief is lying his ass off:

“Some commentators called it “the weirdest Cabinet meeting ever”: President Donald Trump’s leadership team gathered to deliver a litany of praise for the president.

Trump saved some of the boasting for himself, making claims that his administration has been one of historic accomplishments.

“I will say that never has there been a president — with few exceptions; in the case of FDR, he had a major depression to handle — who’s passed more legislation, who’s done more things than what we’ve done, between the executive orders and the job-killing regulations that have been terminated,” Trump said, later adding, “We’ve achieved tremendous success.”

We’ve previously checked Trump’s claim in April that “no administration has accomplished more in the first 90 days” and found that assertion to be False. But given the high-profile setting of Trump’s comment — his first formal Cabinet meeting — we decided to take a look at his new statement…”

Naomi Klein offers 5 tips on how to recognize and fight back against our illegitimate president’s gifts to his corporate masters:

“Though President Donald Trump now occupies the most powerful office in the world, author and activst Naomi Klein argues there’s nothing inevitable about what comes next.

“A major crisis could redraw the political map overnight,” she warns, “giving Trump and his crew free rein to ram through their most extreme ideas.”

However, she adds, such “tactics can be resisted” so long as people learn to recognize them and respond appropriately. She writes:

The administration is creating chaos. Daily. Of course many of the scandals are the result of the president’s ignorance and blunders – not some nefarious strategy…”
