Misadventures of a minority-elect President 195

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 malignant minority-elect president begin with why our national embarrassment continues providing such outlandish tweets and actions to serve as distractions from his corrupt policies and failed presidency, how our illegitimate minority-elect president has made millions laundering money while serving as president, debunking Trump’s lies directly and repeatedly with good framing will go a long way towards embarrassing him even further, Trump’s deplorable GOP brown shirts are trying to justify his racist comments, despite his delusions of being the best president ever Trump makes history with the lowest approval rating ever, how our fraudulent demented orange delinquent is illegally profiting off the presidency, growing chances of Trump ordering a false flag to try and bolster his failed presidency and save the GOP from the bloodbath they will receive during the 2018 midterm elections, why becoming accustomed and complacent to Trump’s delusional alternate reality and demented demeanor isn’t good, rights and freedoms in America are waning due to Trump’s desire to be a dictator – though fortunately for us that won’t happen – instead of a president, why our distractor-in-chief lies so much, our demented delinquent spent at least 38 weeks at his own properties at taxpayer expense during his first year in office, how to prepare for year two of our dimwitted dip shit’s term and much more.

Secret Money: How Trump Made Millions Selling Condos To Unknown Buyers article from Buzzfeed News. –
https://www.buzzfeed.com/thomasfrank/secret-money-how-trump-made-millions-selling-condos-to?utm_term=.plyKbV6z2#.baXGygABL

More on the millions Trump is making with his money laundering while sitting as president:

More than one-fifth of Donald Trump’s US condominiums have been purchased since the 1980s in secretive, all-cash transactions that enable buyers to avoid legal scrutiny by shielding their finances and identities, a BuzzFeed News investigation has found.

Records show that more than 1,300 Trump condominiums were bought not by people but by shell companies, and that the purchases were made without a mortgage, avoiding inquiries from lenders.

Those two characteristics signal that a buyer may be laundering money, the Treasury Department has said in a series of statements since 2016. Treasury’s financial-crimes unit has, in recent years, launched investigations around the country into all-cash shell-company real-estate purchases amid concerns that some such sales may involve money laundering. The agency is considering requiring real-estate professionals to adopt anti-money-laundering programs.

All-cash purchases by shell companies do not by themselves indicate illegal or improper activity, and they have become more common in recent years in both Trump buildings and other luxury home sales across the United States. Developers such as Trump have no obligation to scrutinize their purchasers or their funding sources…”

Notes From a ‘Shithole’ Superpower article from CounterPunch. –
https://www.counterpunch.org/2018/01/16/notes-from-a-shithole-superpower/

Ripping countries that became shitholes because of America’s shithole moves is extremely moronic:

“Most of Donald Trump’s vicious and moronic statements are best ignored. Some, though, are unavoidable.

Where to begin in processing the horror and idiocy of Donald Trump’s comments during a meeting with U.S. congresspersons late last week? Trump ripped immigration to the U.S. from “shithole countries” like El Salvador, Haiti and “Africa.”

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said. “Why don’t we get more people from places like Norway?” (I paraphrase…we do not have the precise quote, but the basic gist and content is clear).

Norway must have been on Trump’s disordered mind since he had just met with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg on Wednesday…”

Presidency for Sale: 64 Trade Groups. Companies, Candidates, Foreign Governments and Political Groups Spending Money at Trump’s Properties article from Corporate Presidency. –
https://corporatepresidency.org/presidencyforsale/

How our fraudulent demented Orange delinquent is illegally profiting off his presidency:

“One year of Trump. One year of unprecedented conflicts of interest.

Donald Trump’s sprawling set of businesses – and his refusal to divest his financial interests in hotels, golf courses, restaurants and real estate developments around the world – has presented a unique set of conflicts that previously were unimaginable for the president of the United States.

Never before has a president owned a private club in Florida that hiked its membership fees shortly after the president took office and sold $750 tickets to a New Year’s party. Never before has the president of the United States owned an international real estate empire that’s deeply entangled with foreign governments and sold dozens of condominiums to secretive buyers.

While some of Donald Trump’s businesses, such as his hotel in Washington, D.C. have clearly been helped by his presidency, others such as hotel ventures in New York and Toronto have been hurt by his infamy. But most alarming are the array of interest groups trying to cozy up to Trump by spending money at his properties…”

Normalizing the Abnormal article from Slate. –
https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2018/01/we-havent-normalized-trump-weve-just-gotten-used-to-him-that-may-be-worse.html

Becoming accustomed and complacent to Trump’s bizarre alternate reality isn’t good:

“Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that the president of the United States paid $130,000 to a famous porn actress to stop her from revealing details of an alleged affair between them. For Barack Obama or George W. Bush or Bill Clinton or George H. W. Bush or Ronald Reagan or Jimmy Carter—or really, for just about any of their predecessors—the mere hint of such a payoff would have become the defining scandal of their presidency. But somehow, the sordid story of Stormy Daniels has barely entered public consciousness. Few papers featured it on the front page. Within 48 hours, the conversation had already moved on to the next Trumpian controversy. The normal rules of politics simply do not apply to this particular president.

Granted, the payoff to Daniels is hardly the most egregious of Trump’s misdeeds. If nobody cared about it because the political class was too busy chronicling the larger and more consequential outrages committed by his administration, there might have been something redeeming about this silence. But it doesn’t seem as though this is what’s going on here. Instead, we have simply revised down our expectations—big as well as small, public as well as private.

This alone shows that there was something to the biggest fear that the burgeoning class of Trump-watchers expressed after his ascent to the highest office in the land: that America might quickly start to normalize the president. “In the face of the impulse to normalize,” Masha Gessen wrote the day after the 2016 election, “it is essential to maintain one’s capacity for shock.” “Washington is going about its business talking about who’s going to get what jobs,” David Remnick observed a few days later. “You would think that Mitt Romney had won. It’s a hallucination.”

Thankfully, though, the most extreme fears about normalization have not materialized. In part because of Trump’s insistence on acting like the worst cartoon version of himself—and in part because many of us took Gessen’s and Remnick’s warnings to heart—the president, by and large, continues to be treated as the aberration he really is. Newspapers that had once insisted on quoting two points of view on every conceivable issue openly state when the president lies. Business leaders who were initially willing to play ball with the administration have deserted his advisory councils in droves. Even Republican congressmen and senators who have supported his legislative agenda time and again have repeatedly felt the need to distance themselves from his most shocking comments…”

Donald Trump and his banana republic article from Salon. –
https://www.salon.com/2018/01/16/donald-trump-and-his-banana-republic_partner/

Our useless shit for brains president caters to his fraudulent billionaire friends for a multitude of reasons:

“Donald Trump is an amazingly persistent man. On the campaign trail, he promised the American people repeatedly that he would build a “beautiful wall” on the border with Mexico, “to keep murderers and the rapists out.” Now, he’s demanding $18 billion to start the project.

There is a minor problem with this request. While announcing his candidacy in 2015, Trump — the self-styled great deal maker — declared “I will build a great, great wall on our southern border and I’ll have Mexico pay for that wall.”

This promise was repeated countless times during the election campaign, to the delight of his audiences. He regularly asked his audiences who would pay for that wall. “Mexico,” they hooted and repeated after him.

However, the $18 billion request to fund Trump’s great beautiful wall has not been sent to the presidential palace in Mexico City, as one would have expected, but to the U.S. Congress in Washington…”

Majority Of Americans See Trump’s First Year As A Failure article from NPR. –
https://www.npr.org/2018/01/18/578639915/majority-of-americans-see-trumps-first-year-as-a-failure

Despite some odious claims of being the most successful president in history, Trump’s first year has been one massive failure after another:

“As President Trump approaches the one-year anniversary of his inauguration, a majority of Americans think his first year in office has been a failure — and that he’s divided the nation.

A new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds that by a 53-to-40-percent margin, Americans deemed Trump’s first year a failure. And by an almost 2-to-1 margin (61 to 32 percent), Americans said they believe Trump has divided the country since his election.

Americans give Trump relatively positive marks on his handling of ISIS and the state of the economy — no small things. But on just about every other issue, they disapprove of his handling of them or they think things have gotten worse — from their views of the tax plan to the state of race relations and women’s rights to immigration, health care, the deficit and foreign policy, including his approach to North Korea. Seven-in-10 Americans are now concerned about the possibility of war breaking out with the rogue nuclear nation.

“The first-year grades for Trump are not good,” said Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion. “He remains with his base intact and not much else. People remain doubtful in the institutions of our government, doubtful in how he’s communicating things and how he’s handling things. It’s not a pretty picture for the president after the first year.”…”

Trump’s first year: President spent 38 weekends at his own properties article from USA Today. –

Our part-time president is milking taxpayers for millions of dollars in profit while staying at his own properties:

“Since Donald Trump took office last January, we tracked where he spent each of his first 52 weekends in office.

On at least 38 weekends, he visited at least one his properties.

Translation: For every 10 weekends that Trump was in office, about seven of them included a visit to a Trump property. He’s also expected to kick off his second year in office down at Mar-a-Lago this weekend.

Trump’s travels draw attention to his own properties, something that critics argue boost for the Trump Organization and put money into the president’s own pockets…”

Here are those takeaways followed by Lakoff’s summation of his talk at Sonoma State University.)

1. Don’t use the president’s surname.

2. Remember this is a regime and he’s not acting alone.

3. Do not argue with those who support him — it doesn’t work…”
