Misadventures of a minority-elect President 144

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:

Our popular vote losing Troll-in-Chief begins this segment of his misadventures by releasing the personal information of thousands who wrote in to oppose his fraudulent voter fraud commission’s recent illegal request for their information from every state, Trump’s playbook of how to distract from his growing list of crimes and scandals – Tweet, deny, dismiss – published, our demented delinquent has been lying about his Russia ties this whole time as his Russia scandal continues expanding rapidly, America’s worst-ever President has another massive conflict of interest scandal brewing, our Loser-in-Chief’s Ministry of Propaganda is losing the war on defending Trump Jr.’s illegal actions as our Liar-in-Chief’s popularity hits new lows, our impotent leader still lying about his fraudulent healthcare tax giveaway bill, the importance of recognizing trauma caused by Trump, dealing with it and fighting back, our War Criminal-in-Chief is on a role, our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator trying to mainstream ‘collusion is normal’ defense to justify his treason and much more.

It appears illegally requesting voter information from every state wasn’t enough for our Troll-in-Chief’s fraudulent ‘voter integrity’ commission since they went with publishing the names and other personal information of those who wrote in opposing their fraudulent scam.

Donald Trump Jr. paid attorney with funds form his father’s re-election campaign: report article from Salon. –
http://www.salon.com/2017/07/15/donald-trump-jr-paid-attorney-with-funds-from-his-fathers-re-election-campaign-report/

Apparently trying to collude with Russia wasn’t enough for our dimwitted dip shit’s son:

“If you’ve donated to President Donald Trump’s campaign to re-elect, there’s a chance those funds have been used to pay for the first family’s legal defense team. Federal Election Commission records show that the president’s re-election campaign made a $50,000 payment last month to the attorney representing Donald Trump Jr., Reuters reported Saturday.

The payment came almost two weeks before Trump Jr. revealed that he met with a Russian lawyer in order to discuss damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

The payment, dated June 27, was made to the Law Offices of Alan Futerfas, according to Reuters, and was disclosed in the most recent filing with the Federal Election Commission. “Legal consulting” was the purported reasoning for the payment.

Futerfas was announced as Trump Jr.’s lawyer earlier this week after The New York Times first reported the shady encounter between Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. Four other individuals reportedly attended the meeting…”

Trump Jr., Russian collusion, and the pro-Trump media’s bad-faith attack on the press article from Media Matters. –
https://www.mediamatters.org/blog/2017/07/12/trump-jr-russian-collusion-and-pro-trump-media-s-bad-faith-attack-press/217229

Trump’s deviant son broke the law – big time – and Trump’s Ministry of Propaganda is losing the battle on defending Jr.’s deviant actions:

“Pro-Trump media outlets are attacking the mainstream press in response to the devastating news that the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., met during the 2016 presidential campaign with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer after he was promised she would provide information that would damage Hillary Clinton as part of a pro-Trump effort by the Russian government. More than any other incident in recent memory, this eagerness to hide from reality within the comfort of anti-media rhetoric shows that the right-wing’s media critique is not offered in good faith, but instead is an effort to undermine journalists in the public eye in order to maintain political power.

Over a four-day period, The New York Times’ journalists painstakingly reported out the story. While their initial stories piecing together the meeting and how it came about were based on anonymous sources, yesterday the reporters produced the actual email chain between Trump Jr. and a Kremlin-linked associate. The messages confirmed the accuracy of their previous reports, as well as Trump Jr.’s eagerness to collude with the Russian government in order to influence the election.

Meanwhile, Trump Jr. repeatedly changed his story, coming up with new rationales and explanations for the meeting every time the Times reporters came back to him with more evidence that his previous stories were false. Yesterday, he even released the email chain on Twitter, which he claimed was an effort to be “totally transparent.” That, too, was a lie — he released the emails after being informed that the Times had obtained them and was about to publish a story about them. At this point, it should be impossible for an impartial observer to believe anything Trump Jr. says.

But President Donald Trump’s media allies love his son and hate journalists, so it didn’t take them long to find a way to turn Trump Jr. literally confessing to an attempt to collude with the Russian government into an attack on the press. Trump’s “alt-right” supporters immediately claimed that Trump Jr.’s email release was a brilliant tactic showing that the “lying NY Times fabricated another fake story!” This argument requires either a startling level of stupidity or a willingness to say literally anything in order to achieve a political end. I’d say no one could be that stupid, but Jim Hoft is involved…”

Tom Price admits that the new Trumpcare is only repeal, no replace article from Think Progress. –
https://thinkprogress.org/tom-price-admits-trumpcare-returns-to-bad-old-days-24aaf7b13609

Still lying about Trump’s fraudulent healthcare tax giveaway bill that only repeals Obamacare with no replacement options:

“During his presidential campaign, Donald Trump promised, over and over again, that he would replace Obamacare with “something terrific,” that would “take care of everybody” and be “a lot less expensive” for consumers and the government.

But despite claims by Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) that his latest version of Trumpcare would provide “stability” while “improving affordability,” Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price made a major admission about the bill Sunday: that the legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare would simply permit insurers return to the ways they used to operate.

On ABC’s This Week, the longtime Obamacare critic was pressed by Jon Karl about a provision in the bill pushed by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), which would allow insurance companies to offer sub-standard plans. Karl noted that not only do more than 10 medical groups and 32 cancer organizations oppose the Trumpcare bill, “a rare joint statement by the biggest insurance companies in the country called the Cruz amendment ‘unworkable in any form’ [as] ‘it would lead to, ‘widespread terminations of coverage.”

Price responded that he found that wall of opposition “really perplexing, especially from the insurance companies, cause all they have to do is dust off how they did business before Obamacare.”…”

The resistance that cried wolf article from The Week. –
http://theweek.com/articles/712023/resistance-that-cried-wolf

The growing ignorance and ‘whataboutism’ of the miscreants that try to defend Trump’s crimes:

“It’s impossible in some quarters to discuss Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a shady Russian lawyer without being quizzed about similar bad things politicians from the opposing party have done.

What about Ted Kennedy’s secret messages to the Soviets while Ronald Reagan was running for re-election? What about the Ukrainian government trying to help Hillary Clinton? And on and on it goes.

This bit of rhetorical judo has become so common in our politics that it even has a name: “whataboutism.” Naturally, its origins have been traced back to the Russians, if not even further back. The Economist’s Edward Lucas described it as an attempt to “match every Soviet crime with a real or imagined Western one.”

More recently, the tactic has been deployed by diehard supporters of President Trump, as well as by his more removed “anti-anti-Trumpist” backers…”

The delusions of our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator in his alternate fact-filled alternative reality:

“After months of adamantly denying that investigators would find even a shred of evidence pointing to collusion between his campaign and Russia, President Donald Trump is aggressively embracing the view that his son’s cooperation with apparent Russian agents was entirely normal. On Monday, he acknowledged that his son, Donald Trump Jr., met with a Russian lawyer in the hopes of receiving damaging information about Hillary Clinton:

Most politicians would have gone to a meeting like the one Don jr attended in order to get info on an opponent. That’s politics!

As news of the June 9, 2016, meeting, involving Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, his brother-in-law (who is now a senior adviser in the White House); and Paul Manafort, Trump’s campaign chairman, began to trickle out last weekend, the president’s defenders initiated a 180-degree turn in their line of argument. Gone was the claim there was no evidence of a collusion to be found—that claim was untenable in light of the emails that Trump Jr. released, in which he was very clearly informed that the meeting was with a woman identified as a “Russian government lawyer,” and that the purpose was to give the Trump campaign damaging information about Clinton, because the Russian government backed Trump in the race.

The new tactic was to normalize collusion, arguing that in fact colluding with a foreign government in such a situation was neither nefarious nor illegal, and was in fact standard operating procedure. Jeanine Pirro, a Fox News host who has emerged as one of Trump’s most dogged defenders, even said, “If the devil called me and said he wanted to set up a meeting to give me opposition research on my opponent, I’d be on the first trolley to hell to get it.”…”
