Misadventures of a minority-elect President 137

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:

Trump’s contempt for American democracy and the government institutions that keep it honest begin today’s misadventures of our minority-elect Loser-in-Chief, 44 States – so far – refuse to hand over voter data to Trump’s fraudulent ‘voter integrity commission’ for obvious reasons, despite the ‘fake news’ claims from our fake president, more Americans trust CNN than Trump, our national embarrassment’s misuse of plausible deniability – there’s a major difference between it and being profoundly stupid, America’s worst-ever president’s phony patriotism charades awed his supporters while making him look foolish to the majority, how Trump is the greatest threat facing America and more.

Poll: More Americans trust CNN than Trump article from The Hill. –
http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/340601-poll-more-americans-trust-cnn-than-trust-trump

All the bogus cries of ‘fake news’ by our fake president are for naught – unless you’re in the minority that ‘elected’ him:

“A new online poll finds that Americans trust CNN, The Washington Post and The New York Times more than President Trump, Axios reported Tuesday.

But amid Trump’s ongoing war against the press, trust is largely split among partisan lines, with 89 percent of Republicans viewing Trump as more trustworthy than CNN while 91 percent of Democrats think the opposite.

Among all adults, trust for CNN is 7 points ahead of Trump; among independents, CNN wins by 15 points.

Trump on Sunday tweeted a doctored video of a wrestling match between himself and CNN, escalating an ongoing war of rhetoric between the president and the cable news outlet, which he has repeatedly dismissed as “fake news.”…”

Donald Trump Asked Twitter A Question. It Really Didn’t Go Well. article from The Huffington Post. –
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-twitter-question_us_595afc8ee4b02734df33db54

Note to Mr. President: Asking a dictator if he has nothing better to do with his life while wasting yours creating fake news and posting propaganda videos won’t end well:

“President Donald Trump slammed North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un on Twitter on Monday after the country’s latest missile test.

Trump, who has previously praised Kim as a “smart cookie,” also asked a question: “Does this guy have anything better to do with his life?”

Well, the president asked … and the denizens of Twitter had an immediate response, with thousands of replies within minutes.

Here are some of those answers:…”

Trump’s Phony Patriotism Clashes With the Radical Roots of America the Beautiful and the Pledge of Allegiance article from Common Dreams. –
https://www.commondreams.org/views/2017/07/04/trumps-phony-patriotism-clashes-radical-roots-america-beautiful-and-pledge

Flag-waving patriotism rooted in xenophobia and racism when you have no mandate or credibility isn’t patriotic:

“Most Americans are unaware that much of our patriotic culture—including many of the leading symbols and songs—was created by people with decidedly progressive sympathies.”

“We all salute the same great American flag,” President Donald Trump told an enthusiastic crowd at a rally of evangelical Christians and military veterans at the Kennedy Center on Saturday.

Wearing his flag label pin, Trump appeared on a stage decorated with a massive American flag. The audience—many of them decked out in red, white, and blue—waved miniature American flags. As he walked off the stage after his 35-minute speech, the First Baptist Dallas Orchestra played “You’re a Grand Old Flag.”

Before Trump addressed the crowd, a choir performed religious hymns along with “America the Beautiful.”

The event was designed to wrap Trump himself in the flag, religion and the military in anticipation of July 4. To Trump and his followers, these are symbols of patriotism. In Trump’s worldview, that means “America First,” deporting undocumented immigrants, restricting visitors from Muslim countries, and withdrawing from the Paris climate accord and other international agreements…”

The greatest threat facing the United States is its own president article from The Washington Post. –
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/global-opinions/wp/2017/07/04/the-greatest-threat-facing-america-is-our-own-president/

Dangers America faces due to the fatally flawed presidency of Donald Trump and his cabal:

“Last week, at the Aspen Ideas Festival, I moderated a panel on U.S. national security in the Trump era. On the panel, former CIA director David H. Petraeus offered the most robust defense of President Trump’s foreign policy that I have heard. Central to his premise were two facts. First, he argued that Trump’s national security team was the strongest he had ever seen. Next, he argued that whereas President Barack Obama was indecisive to the point of paralysis, such as in the case of Syria, Trump is decisive.

Toward the end of the conversation, we turned to Trump’s erratic behavior and I noted that for the first time in three decades in the world of foreign policy, I was getting regular questions about the mental health of the president.

I asked Petraeus, a man I respect, if he thought the president was fit to serve. His response was, “It’s immaterial.” He argued that because the team around Trump was so good, they could offset whatever deficits he might have. I was floored. It was a stunningly weak defense.

That is where we are now. The president’s tweeting hysterically at the media is just an element of this. So too is his malignant and ever-visible narcissism. The president has demonstrated himself to have zero impulse control and a tendency to damage vital international relationships with ill-considered outbursts, to trust very few of the people in his own government, and to reportedly rant and shout at staff and even at the television sets he obsessively watches…”

Until our last disgraceful presidential election the bully at the pulpit was – with the exception of 2000 – relatively intelligent unlike the illegitimate, minority-elect President we have now.

Have a safe and happy Fourth of July everyone.
