Misadventures of a minority-elect President 139

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 minority-elect President begin with being all shook up by the dream team of lawyers Robert Mueller is assembling to check out the stories of collusion between Russia and the Trump cabal, how to tell when our Liar-in-Chief actually believes the bull shit he’s about to spew and when he’s about to tell an outright lie, Trump’s duplicitous actions on his second foreign folly – this time talking about protecting free speech while conducting his wars on media and the truth, the importance of paying attention to Trump’s fraudulent healthcare tax giveaway, Trump staking his presidency on his war on the press, the lowdown on Trump’s fraudulent voter commission to try and justify many of Trump’s lies on the campaign trail – which, for the record, have never stopped and lots more.

Donald Trump has a ‘Tell’ article from The Daily Kos. –
https://www.dailykos.com/story/2017/7/3/1677628/-Donald-Trump-has-a-Tell

How to tell when Trump actually believes the bull shit he’s about to spew and when he outright lies:

“The Donald has a “Tell” — something that should clue in the casual observer, that what he is about to say is probably true (ie. what he really thinks or believes). Without this “unconscious verbal cue” — the veracity (or dishonestly) of what the guy says, is a crap-shoot at best.

The give-away was made plain in the Lester Holt interview: Donald Trump prefaced his great “reveal” with these 4 words, as he commenced with explaining his “inner feelings” to Holt. Those 4 words were:

“I said to myself …”

When Trump says those words, pay attention to what follows, because there is no one he wants to impress more — than himself…”

Setting the stage – and trashing U.S. Intelligence Agencies – before he meets with his BFF in Russia:

“President Donald Trump cast doubt on Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election ahead of his first state meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

While speaking to reporters at a press conferenced in Warsaw, Poland, on Thursday, Trump was asked why he has generally shied away from castigating the Kremlin for attempting to hack the November election.

Trump replied, “I think it was Russia, but I think it was probably other people and/or countries.”

“I see nothing wrong with the statement,” he added. “Nobody really knows, nobody really knows for sure.”…”

Trump is staking his presidency on his war on the press article from Media Matters. –
https://www.mediamatters.org/blog/2017/07/06/trump-staking-his-presidency-his-war-press/217153

Trump wants you to believe the phony media that keeps spreading his fake news over everything else:

“While people across the United States celebrated Independence Day weekend with barbecues and fireworks, President Donald Trump spent the holiday threatening reporters on Twitter.

Trump tweeted a video of him wrestling and punching a man with the CNN logo superimposed on the man’s face, and used a hashtag to call the news network a “fraud.” The video originated in a GIF format from an anonymous Reddit user who, the Anti-Defamation League says, has “an 18-month record of vile comments and memes against Muslims, African-Americans, Jews and others.” Days earlier, the president had posted several revoltingly sexist tweets about MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski.

Trump’s recent Twitter behavior and the rapidly fading long-held norms for White House relations with the press signal that the president’s two-pronged campaign against an informed public is ramping up. We warned about this the week Trump was sworn into office and it’s truer than ever now: Trump is waging both a war against facts, and a war against those who report them.

Trump has been in office for nearly six months, and his major presidential message to the American public is dangerously clear: Only trust information that comes directly from him or the swath of fringe propaganda outlets that do his bidding…”

Daily Stormer Troll Army Threatens CNN Staffers Over Reddit User Behind Trump/CNN GIF article from The Southern Poverty Law Center. –
https://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch/2017/07/05/daily-stormer-troll-army-threatens-cnn-staffers-over-reddit-user-behind-trumpcnn-gif

What happens when neo-Nazi fascists support the neo-Nazi fascist in the White House:

“Andrew Auernheimer, the notorious hacker and Internet troll known as ‘Weev,’ rallied the neo-Nazi Daily Stormer’s troll army for its latest campaign this morning, claiming that CNN was blackmailing a “teen shitposter.”

The events leading to this online call to arms began Sunday morning, when President Trump tweeted a gif created by Reddit user HanAssholeSolo depicting a scene from Wrestlemania XXIII in which Trump body slams and pummels WWE promoter Vince McMahon. In the gif, the CNN logo is superimposed over McMahon’s face.

Auernheimer heralded the tweet as “easily the greatest tweet in the history of Twitter.”

After scouring HanAssholeSolo’s Reddit account, which contained scores of racist and xenophobic postings, CNN’s KFile was able to track down the user’s Facebook page and contact him.

Fearing public embarrassment and his safety, HanAssholeSolo published a lengthy apology on the Reddit group r/theDonald, asking that CNN not publish his identity. (The apology has since been removed.)…”

How American Presidents Used to Speak Overseas article from The Atlantic. –
https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2017/07/trump-poland-speech/532839/

And then along came what we’re stuck with today:

“The president’s speech in Warsaw was notable for its seeming indifference to the American idea.

Is America an idea? Or is it a specific “people” or ethnic group? On the diverging answers to that question turn some of the biggest disputes in U.S. history. Our current president began his trip to Europe with a speech in Poland that minimized the role of ideals in American identity, and maximized the importance of what he called “civilization” but which boils down to ties of ethnicity and blood.

From Donald Trump this cannot be a great surprise, given the support he has courted and the American groups he has derogated during his time on the public stage. But for a president of the United States it still counts as a notable, even shocking departure. A president’s role when traveling has, until now, been to speak for the American idea.

Let me illustrate with another visiting president’s remarks in Poland, more than a generation ago. What Stephen Miller is, I once was—sort of. Miller is a 30-something White House staffer from Southern California who apparently drafts many of Donald Trump’s speeches, including this one. Back in 1977, I was a 20-something White House staffer from Southern California writing speeches for Jimmy Carter, including the one he gave on arrival at the airport in Warsaw, capital of then still-Communist Poland, just after Christmas that year…”
