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:
We begin today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* with his getting angry because terrorizing immigrants, separating families and trying to blackmail Democrats to build his moronic border wall isn’t working, Trump’s despotic delusions of grandeur are now on full display in the White House where he took photos of the French president down and replaced them with framed photos of North Korea’s dictator, more on the devastation of Trump’s zero-tolerance terrorism against immigrants at the U.S. border, apparently having a militarized Space Force for God knows what is okay in our delusional despot’s pea brain but taking care of his subjects is unacceptable, our feckless fuhrer’s delusions of being above the law are about to spoil his alternate reality, Trump’s largest fraudulent donors are profiting off his criminal immigrant policies and much more.
Trump whines that Democrats aren’t paying ransom after he took immigrant kids hostage article from The Raw Story. –
Terrorizing immigrant children while separating families and trying to blackmail Democrats into funding his border wall isn’t working out so well for our dimwitted dip shit and he’s not happy about it.
Is Trump Heading Back to ‘Fire and Fury’ With Kim? article from The Daily Beast. –
Now that the joke that was Trump’s farcical ‘historic summit’ with Kim is starting to implode since North Korea won’t get rid of his nuclear arsenal, it’s only a matter of time before our nefarious narcissist reverts back to his Twitter tirades against North Korea…
Trump tells ridiculous lie about German crime to argue against taking in asylum-seekers article from Think Progress. –
The lies and deceptions from our Lord of the lies about everything are coming fast and furious and it’s going to end up burying his ignorant ass when it backfires.
MSNBC Destroys Trump While He Is Talking With Fact Check Of His Blame Democrats Immigration Lie article from PoliticusUSA. –
Our Liar and Thief is imploding because he can’t get anyone to believe his lies about separating children at the border:
“MSNBC destroyed Trump’s lie that his policy of child separation at the border was the fault of Democrats with an immediate fact check while Trump was still talking.
While Trump was still talking Andrea Mitchell cut in and said, “Let’s do a quick fact check. It is not the Democrats, it’s not congress. This is an enforcement action which the Obama and Bush White Houses rejected as being too harsh and unnecessary, what they were calling a nuclear option, and it is something that Lindsay Graham and others who support the president who say he could change with a phone call. But again, using it against the Democrats and as Bill Kristol was just saying, doubling down on it as a midterm election strategy.”…”
Trump replaces White House photos of French president with framed pictures of Kim Jong-un article from The Raw Story. –
Trump’s despotic delusions of grandeur are on full display as he frames pictures of North Korea’s dictator – probably for inspiration to fuel the fires in his land of delusion:

A week later, President Trump is still defending North Korea agreement article from USA Today. –
Our lackluster lame duck president* is actually stupid enough to believe his farcical historic summit with North Korea actually achieved something when in fact it didn’t:
“WASHINGTON — A week after his unprecedented meeting with Kim Jong Un, President Trump is still defending his agreement with the North Korean leader in the face of criticism that the deal lacks specifics about denuclearization.
In Monday’s installment on Twitter, Trump combined renewed attacks on the media with criticism of predecessor Barack Obama.
“If President Obama (who got nowhere with North Korea and would have had to go to war with many millions of people being killed) had gotten along with North Korea and made the initial steps toward a deal that I have, the Fake News would have named him a national hero!” Trump said.
Critics, including former members of the Obama administration, have said that while Kim pledged the “complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,” the short agreement said nothing about inspections or a verification process to make sure North Korea follows through. The country has made similar pledges in the past, to no avail, they noted…”

Trump’s terrorism against children of immigrants that he keeps trying to blame on Democrats when he could stop it instantly is quite revealing:
What It’s Like Inside a Border Patrol Facility Where Families Are Being Separated article from The Nation. –
A closer look at how Trump’s zero-tolerance terrorism of immigrants has taken us back to the FDR days:
“The dog kennel: That’s how the Border Patrol processing facility in McAllen is known, because of the chain-link fencing penning more than a thousand migrants inside. The 77,000-square-foot facility—often called “Ursula,” because of the street it’s on—lies just a few miles north of the US-Mexico border in the Rio Grande Valley, the busiest corridor for unauthorized migrants. Ursula is one of the first places immigrants are taken to after being apprehended by Border Patrol—and now, the facility is the epicenter for the family separations that are occurring because of the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” policy towards border crossers.
A large cage inside held dozens of young boys and teenagers without their families, some of whom looked as young as 5. A few slept on green mats with silver Mylar blankets pulled tightly around them. A few water bottles and bags of chips lay strewn around. Otherwise, the cages were bare, without toys or books. Separate areas held groups of girls; men and women alone; and mothers and fathers with their children. The overhead lights never go off. In one pen, a woman named Valesca sat on the ground, holding her 1-year-old son. She cried as she recounted leaving another child behind in Guatemala. She’d been inside the processing center for four days.
Under normal circumstances, adults confined in the facility are supposed to stay only 12 hours before being sent to court hearings or other detention centers. But across the border region, detention facilities, children’s shelters, and the legal system are overwhelmed. In May, the Trump administration issued a directive to prosecute all unauthorized border crossers in federal court, rather than to process them through immigration courts. The criminal charges mean extra paperwork, and a flood of cases into the legal system. The Border Patrol’s Rio Grande Valley office is now charging more than a 1,000 adults each week with illegal entry, a misdemeanor.
In one area of the Ursula facility, computers have been set up for “virtual processing,” so that Border Patrol agents in other cities can process the paperwork of detainees being held here. Ursula has only 10 agents permanently stationed there, plus hundreds of temporarily assigned agents, and they can’t handle the volume on their own. Detainees are brought in and out of the facility 24 hours a day. As of noon on Sunday, Ursula held 1,129 people, including 528 families and nearly 200 children who’d crossed the border without their parents. The facility has only four social workers onsite…”
Poverty Rampant, Puerto Rico Destroyed, Single Payer ‘Too Expensive,’ and Flint Still Doesn’t Have Clean Water. But You Can Have Space Force! article from Common Dreams. –
Being an aspiring delusional despot means having a Military Space Force for God knows what, but taking care of your subjects back home is unacceptable…
Is Trump’s ‘Space Force’ Against Space Law? article from The Daily Beast. –
That question should be followed up with another one: Is Trump’s farcical ‘Space Force’ just another distraction from the heat he’s receiving courtesy of his terrorizing and separating immigrant children at the border? It appears Trump’s delusions are getting worse…
We Get It – Trump Is Awful article from Common Dreams. –
We’ve known for decades how awful, profoundly corrupt and ignorant our dystopian Orange dumb ass is and now that he’s made it even more blatantly obvious, it’s time to come up with some alternatives and ways to put an end to his treasonous ass once and for all – unless his endless corruption investigations end up doing it for us first…
No, President Trump, You Are Not Above the Law article from The ACLU. –
Our Feckless Fuhrer’s treasonous actions are going to catch up to him eventually as his profound mental deficiencies and fatally flawed character traits continue taking center stage:
“No one, including the president, is above the law. But you wouldn’t know that if you listened to a number of recent assertions from President Trump and his legal team.
“I have the absolute right to PARDON myself,” President Trump announced last week on Twitter. His lawyers have made similarly far-reaching claims of executive power. “[I]t is abundantly clear,” they assert, that “no FBI investigation … even could have been obstructed by the President.” It is their view that “the President’s actions here, by virtue of his position as the chief law enforcement officer, could neither constitutionally nor legally constitute obstruction because that would amount to him obstructing himself, and that he could, if he wished, terminate the inquiry, or even exercise his power to pardon if he so desired.”
These claims raise three questions: As the chief law enforcement official, is it impossible for the president to obstruct justice? Can the president pardon himself? And, more specifically, can he use the pardon power in a way that obstructs justice?
The answer to all three questions is no. The Constitution gives the president broad powers to pardon people and direct Justice Department investigations — but it does not give him the power to undermine the democratic safeguards enshrined there…”

Everyone on the Trump Train Has an Excuse for Separating Migrant Children from Their Parents article from Esquire. –
Claiming religious beliefs and the Bible – of all things – justifies your morally and ethically corrupt policies reveals the primary reason politics and religion don’t mix – especially when so-called religion has nothing to do with God whatsoever.
Trumpism’s Tipping Point article from Rolling Stone. –
Emulating other dictators isn’t enough for our feckless fuhrer so he has to terrorize immigrants to try and prove he’s more authoritarian:
“Sometimes, we forget where we are. Momentary amnesia is the most charitable explanation for Donald Trump saluting North Korea’s uniformed defense chief. In an uneasy moment of bonhomie during Trump’s Singapore summit last week, General No Kwang-chol saluted the president, then extended his hand for a shake right as Trump raised his right hand to his brow. In the footage played on repeat by North Korean state media, Trump didn’t look like a leader on the verge of one of the more fraught foreign-policy negotiations in decades. In this moment, he looked like a nervous fan.
The shoe fits. While Kim sought legitimacy on the world stage, Trump evidently sought an invitation to the league of strongmen. “He’s the head of a country, and I mean he’s the strong head,” the president told Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy, continuing the submission he began in Singapore. “Don’t let anyone think anything different. He speaks and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same.” Does he mean that? Who knows. We can see that he is indulging in the same kind of ruthlessness that a despot enjoys.
Race and American culture provide a specific context for Trump’s brand of authoritarianism. His ugliest promises to his base involve the literal whitening of the United States population: Mass incarceration, state barbarism and encouragement of white extremist terrorism to handle the black and brown people whom Trump voters dislike. (Not to mention stiff-arming immigrants of color from “shithole countries.”) This was the animating principle of Trump’s entire campaign. While a common suspicion is that the president’s sycophancy to Russia’s Vladimir Putin is about personal blackmail, we should consider what we can plainly see: the two share a central political interest in their opposition to The Other.
Facts are no impediment. Crime in Germany is at its lowest level in 30 years even as the country has welcomed a record number of migrants. Yet German chancellor Angela Merkel, now the closest thing we have to a Leader of the Free World, faces a turning point. Trump sent a tweet Monday morning that evidently hopes to push her over the edge…”

Trump Just Made Up An Even Crazier Lie Blaming Democrats For Child Separations article from PoliticusUSA. –
The perfect example of how Trump just keeps changing his lies when the first ones fail – and how his lies just keep coming:
“Trump has invented a new excuse to blame Democrats for his policy of child separation, and that involves falsely claiming that Congress needs to authorize family detainment.
Trump said, “We want to solve this problem. We want to solve family separation. I don’t want children taken away from parents. And when you prosecute the parents for coming in illegally, which should happen, you have to take the children away. Now, we don’t have to prosecute them, but then we’re not prosecuting them for coming in illegally. That’s not good. We want to end the border crisis by finally giving us the legal authorities and the resources to detain and remove illegal immigrant families all together and bring them back to their country. We have to bring them back to their country. Now, think of all that aid that we give some of these countries. Hundreds of millions of dollars we give to some of these countries. And they send them up. Well, I’m going to go, very shortly, for authorization that when countries abuse us by sending their people up, not their best, we’re not going to give any more aid to those countries. Why the hell should we? Why should we?”…”

How They Defend the Indefensible article from Slate. –
Regardless of the outrage over our national embarrassment’s policies of terrorizing migrant children and families, lies and corruption, there are those that are foolish enough to try and justify the crimes and delusions of America’s most corrupt-ever president*.
Trump leans on inflammatory rhetoric to defend border separation article from Politico. –
The profound stupidity and delusion emanating from America’s worst-ever president* as he tries justifying his terrorism with lies never ceases to amaze as his desperation to justify his authoritarian criminal actions grows:
“President Donald Trump and his allies are using the same inflammatory language they’ve used to describe violent gangs to defend the separation of undocumented children from their parents at the border.
Trump on Tuesday tweeted that immigrants would “pour into and infest” the United States and questioned parents’ decision to send children unaccompanied to the border. The tweet came a day after Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen referred to the “flood” of immigrants, and Fox News host and Trump ally Laura Ingraham described the border crossings as a “slow-rolling invasion of the United States.”
The comments have drawn sharp rebukes from elected officials, including at least one Republican.
“No, @POTUS, saying immigrants ‘infest’ our country is repugnant, reprehensible, + repulsive,” tweeted retiring Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.). “To dehumanize those who wish to make a better life for themselves + their families flies in the face of decency. The real infestation is only one of your baseless rhetoric.”…”

Rachel Maddow Perfectly Sums Up How Sick Trump Really Is article from PoliticusUSA. –
Believing that most people are racist at heart – despite losing the popular vote by almost 3 million – and that public outrage over his criminal immigration policies is a good thing is going to destroy Trump and his GOP brown shirt gestapo that are enabling him:
“While talking about if the courts will block Trump’s child separation policy, Rachel Maddow explained that the White House sees the public outrage as a good thing.

Maddow said, “Can the courts block what the trump administration is doing on the southern border right now? All of the political outrage in the world they see as all of the more reason to keep this going. They want this. They see that as politically to their advantage and they think the American people at heart when we vote in November are racist and anti-immigrant to such a degree that even if they say we’re opposed to this policy, we’ll side with the strong man on an issue like this because we’re a country that is anti-grant and that is what they’re counting on. We’ll find out if they are right. When they see the outrage and disgust and protest over this as the sign they are doing the right thing.”…”
