Misadventures of a minority-elect President 124

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 him being very upset that he’s being investigated for obstruction of justice, our incompetent leader was a lousy business man and he’s an even lousier president, our profoundly corrupt and ignorant wannabe dictator is causing yuge problems for the GOP, we’ll soon see the fate of Trump’s Muslim Ban, another loser Trump nominated for a cabinet position goes down in flames, our illegitimate Loser-in-Chief doing his damnedest to deflect attention from his imminent implosion with more Twitter tantrums, the case for impeaching our incorrigibly inept leader – and why he’s such a failure, Trump and the GOP have no mandate and much more.

The unpopular Trump is shrinking the GOP article from The Washington Post. –
https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/wp/2017/06/14/the-unpopular-trump-is-shrinking-the-gop/

It’s getting to the point where the GOP is going to pay a huge price for our dimwitted dip shit’s corruption and ignorance:

“President Trump has two problems. First, public disapproval of the president and a lack of confidence in him are skyrocketing. Second, Republicans’ solace that “at least the GOP is with him” may be misguided.

As for the overall numbers, his disapproval rating hit a new high of 60 percent in the Gallup poll. In the latest Politico-Morning Consult poll, 53 percent of voters think former FBI director James B. Comey is very or somewhat honest. By a margin of 45 percent to 32 percent, voters pick Comey over Trump when it comes to honesty. A strong plurality of voters think Trump fired Comey over the Russia investigation, not due to concerns about his performance (47 percent to 36 percent).

By a large majority, voters disfavor his signature bill, the American Health Care Act (which now he concedes is “mean”!). Big tax cuts for the rich, the heart of his tax plan, are unpopular as well. In short, even if Trump could get back to his agenda, it is not going to find favor with the voters.

As for GOP support, let’s keep in mind a few things. First, he’s a minority president who got only 46.1 percent of the vote. He cannot afford to lose voters; he needs to gain support from independents and even Democrats. Second, the Virginia gubernatorial primary results and generic congressional polling show that Democrats have a decisive advantage when it comes to enthusiasm and engagement. Third, we have the Virginia gubernatorial primary results and in a week we will have the results of Georgia’s 6th Congressional District special election to test the proposition that as the GOP becomes the Party of Trump, it becomes less attractive to a mass of voters who have traditionally considered themselves to be Republicans. A shrunken GOP means losses in 2018, the potential for the House to flip to Democratic control and proceed to impeachment, and the emergence of either a primary challenger to Trump, a third-party movement or an enlarged Democratic Party with GOP defectors…”

Poll: Majority thinks Trump has little to no respect for country’s institutions article from The Hill. –
http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/337899-poll-majority-thinks-trump-has-little-to-no-respect-for-countrys

In reality Trump has little to no respect for anyone or anything aside from corrupt corporations that own him:

“A majority of Americans thinks President Trump has little or no respect for the democratic traditions in the U.S., according to a new poll.

The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll finds 65 percent of respondents think the president has little or no respect for the country’s democratic institutions or traditions.

Only 34 percent of Americans think Trump has a great deal or a fair amount of respect for them.

The poll also finds that 64 percent of Americans don’t approve of the job Trump is doing a president, compared to just 35 percent who approve of the president’s job performance…”

Poll: Most Think Trump Interfered With Russia Investigation article from Roll Call. –
http://www.rollcall.com/news/politics/poll-think-trump-interfered-russia-investigation

Despite the claims of Russian interference in the election, no evidence has been provided as of yet, but Trump could very well have colluded to take down Clinton:

“Most Americans think President Donald Trump has attempted to interfere with the investigation into his campaign’s ties to Russia and possible Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to a new poll from The Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

Other results that don’t bode well for Trump: Just one in five Americans support his firing of James Comey as FBI director, 68 percent are moderately to very concerned about possible Trump ties to Russia, and only three in 10 say they aren’t very concerned.

Americans were divided on questions about Trump and Russia largely along party lines, with Republicans much more likely to say they aren’t concerned about Russian ties, the related investigation, or Comey’s firing.

Trump tweeted to call the probe “phony” Thursday morning, saying the Justice Department was investigating potential obstruction of justice because they were unable to find any evidence of collusion between his campaign and Russia…”

Memo to Trump: This Is Why You’re Losing article from The Atlantic. –
https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/06/memo-to-trump-this-is-why-youre-losing/530490/

The Trump brand of corruption and ignorance coupled with his draconian desire to be America’s dictator is causing his failures:

“It would be hard to fashion a more exquisite snare for a man like Donald Trump than the modern, institutional presidency. Just five months into his term, he appears trapped by its constraints—and the harder he tries to escape them, the more thoroughly entangled he becomes.

On Thursday morning, President Trump again lashed out at the “bad and conflicted people” investigating him for obstructing justice. “They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story,” he tweeted. But to take Trump’s charge at face value is to read it as an indictment of his own blunders. Trump is claiming that there was no underlying wrongdoing, but his decision to fire his FBI director sparked the appointment of a special counsel who’s now exploring whether it was a criminal act. This, he says, is a purely self-inflicted wound—or, as a senior administration official told The Daily Beast, “The president did this to himself.”

Trump is, in many ways, a man out of his time. He ran his business as he is attempting to run the presidency, as a 19th-century style entity, built around its proprietor. But the federal government has long-since evolved into a modern bureaucracy, an institution Trump appears to have neither the experience nor the patience to successfully operate.

Trump’s business empire sprawls into hundreds of LLCs and licensing agreements, but at its core, it takes a familiar form: the proprietary firm. Built around its founder, generally branded with his name, its reputation intertwined with his, and its affairs directly under his management—this was the dominant form of business in the United States until the final decade of the 19th century…”

The Perverse Joy of Trump article from Counter Punch. –
https://www.counterpunch.org/2017/06/15/the-perverse-joy-of-trump/

On the perverse joy our national embarrassment takes in his profoundly corrupt idiocy:

“On May 17, 2017 she left her home on Vancouver Island, went to the mainland for the day and renounced her US citizenship. She’d lived as a US citizen in a foreign country for forty years.

Trump’s presidency brings gut wrenching reactions to America. He is, depending who you listen to, the or at least an Answer. Or he’s a dangerous fool. Elsewhere in the world peoples’ reactions are less heated. They tend to spontaneous outbursts of giggles tinged with hope.

The Donald’s presidency continues US nationalism. So we see economic and political threats to traditional allies and military threats to potential opponents. Most presidents direct world affairs through massive political, economic and military powers. The Donald uses those powers based on whim or what is being served for dessert. So why the amusement?

For many The Donald starkly realizes what America has become. They see someone confused by ignorance, narrow, self interested, a juggins, a joskins, a monied hick. Chances are he’ll confuse Damascus with Baghdad, or rename the Canadian PM Justine instead of Justin. Many Americans are embarrassed, sufficiently so for citizens to renounce citizenship…”
