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:
Temper tantrums over his dubious ‘border wall’ that he lied to us about saying Mexico would pay for begins today’s misadventures of our malignant minority-elect president* as he foolishly listens to his Ministry of Propaganda at Fox faux news – which will prove costly to him and the GOP, Trump is ignorant to try and blame Democrats for shutting down the government after he said he would be proud to, Trump’s Twitter melt downs are coming fast and furious – for obvious reasons, each passing week brings more self induced disaster to the Donald as he continues self destructing plus much more.
Trump Tantrums And Refuses To Keep Government Open Unless He Gets Wall Money article from PoliticusUSA. –
Listening to his minions at Fox News – his Ministry of Propaganda – is going to prove costly to Trump since he’s actually stupid enough to shut down part of the government over his ill-fated border wall that Mexico was never going to pay for in the first place:

The Donald just can’t seem to stop breaking the law – which isn’t surprising given the endless depths of his profound corruption.
Trump Issues Threat: Shutdown Would ‘Last A Very Long Time’ article from Talking Points Memo. –
Unlike his presidency, which will hurt bigly because of it:
“In a barrage of tweets over the past 12 hours, President Trump alternately praised House Republicans for caving to his demand for border wall funding, warned their colleagues in the Senate that they better follow suit, and blamed the entire prospect of a shutdown on Democrats who have steadfastly opposed the wall project.
“The Democrats, whose votes we need in the Senate, will probably vote against Border Security and the Wall even though they know it is DESPERATELY NEEDED,” Trump tweeted Friday. “If the Dems vote no, there will be a shutdown that will last for a very long time. People don’t want Open Borders and Crime!”
A subsequent tweet put his threat more succinctly: “Shutdown today if Democrats do not vote for Border Security!”
Just last week, Trump said he would be “proud” to shut down the Republican-controlled government to get his wall money…”
Nice Try Donald article from Splinter News. –
Donald keeps trying to blame everyone else for his massive failure of a presidency, but he totally owns the shut down regardless of his lies and bull shit propaganda:
FLASHBACK. December 11.
Trump: If we don’t get what we want, one way or the other… I will shut down the government … So I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down. I’m not going to blame you for it. pic.twitter.com/zBr4gE1wrz

Trump really has no idea how badly shutting down the government over one of his many delusions is going to cost him…
Trump has the government teetering on the edge of chaos. Is anyone surprised? article from The Week. –
In a word, No, which isn’t surprising given how much of a profoundly corrupt and ignorant moron he truly is.
It’s far too late for Trump to avoid blame for his own shutdown article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
As previously mentioned, trying to blame Democrats for his own ignorant actions this time isn’t going to fly:
“The political incentives surrounding a government shutdown can be tricky, but the principal goal for most partisans is to avoid responsibility for the fiasco. The public tends not to like it when elected officials create self-imposed crises, which is why politicians usually scramble in situations like these to point fingers at their rivals.
As Donald Trump gets ready to shut down the government tonight, he turned to Twitter this morning to dip his toes into the blame-game waters.
“Senator Mitch McConnell should fight for the Wall and Border Security as hard as he fought for anything. He will need Democrat votes, but as shown in the House, good things happen. If enough Dems don’t vote, it will be a Democrat Shutdown!”
No, actually it won’t, and no fair-minded person could possibly take this seriously. Indeed, Americans just last week saw one prominent politician make a compelling case that the president would bear sole responsibility for this mess…”

All the crises Trump faces are of his own doing, offering us yet more proof that he has no business being in the White House to begin with and should be behind bars where he belongs.
Trump, Unchecked article from The Atlantic. –
Grab some popcorn folks, the idiocracy is going to get a lot worse as Donnie’s presidency continues to implode:
“Unlike H. R. McMaster, Rex Tillerson, and Nikki Haley, James Mattis was never going to go quietly. He has read too much history and is too cognizant of his duty for that. His letter of resignation was all the more devastating for its understatement. For more than a year, senior administration officials have constructed the fiction that the United States is following a foreign policy of competing with authoritarian powers. Anyone who has talked with one of these officials in private will be familiar with the mantra—look at the substance of the National Security Strategy, not the tweets. Never mind that the president never spoke of this strategy, even when he made remarks introducing it.
Mattis laid bare the reality. He wrote that his views “on treating allies with respect and also being clear eyed about malign actors and strategic competitors” make it impossible for him to continue to serve the president, because “you have a right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are more aligned with your views on these and other subjects.”
In a post for Task & Purpose, Paul Szoldra, a former marine, pointed to a speech Mattis delivered in 2014, shortly after he retired from the Marine Corps. He was asked whether there was anything that would lead a four-star general to resign in protest. “You have to be very careful about doing that,” Mattis said. “The lance corporals can’t retire. And they’re going. That’s all there is to it.” He emphasized that he always expected to be heard by policy makers, but not to be obeyed. “My portfolio was narrower than the president’s. He was the commander in chief. He was voted in by the American people.” Be careful, he cautioned, because a leader’s first obligation is to that lance corporal. “You abandon him only under the most dire circumstances, where the message you have to send can be sent no other way. I never confronted that situation.”
That dire situation is now upon us. So what happens next?”

Trump’s shutdown strategy is shaped by what he sees on TV article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
Allowing his Ministry of Propaganda to dictate what he says and does reveals just how incompetent Trump truly is and isn’t doing him any favors:
“It’s practically become the punch-line to a national joke: when Donald Trump needs to find personnel for his team, the president instinctively turns to people he’s seen on television. What’s often overlooked, however, is the degree to which Trump’s presidency is also guided by what he sees and hears from his favorite personalities in conservative media.
Earlier this week, as the White House came to terms with the fact that Congress wouldn’t approve $5 billion for a border wall, the president and his team backed off its shutdown threats. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders publicly discussed the “other ways” the administration would secure the funds – outside of the congressional appropriations process – and Trump eagerly did the same.
When it came time for the Senate to approve a stopgap spending bill to prevent a shutdown, it passed effortlessly in large part because the White House told Senate leaders the president would sign it.
So what happened? As the Washington Post reported, Trump started responding to what he saw on TV…”

We Know How Trump’s War Game Ends article from Rolling Stone. –
Trump will reverse course on removing troops from Syria and Afghanistan because ending our never-ending war is unacceptable to our Military-Industrial Complex and the corrupt Congress critters they own:
“So we’re withdrawing troops from the Middle East.
What’s the War on Terror death count by now, a half-million? How much have we spent, $5 trillion? Five-and-a-half?
For that cost, we’ve destabilized the region to the point of abject chaos, inspired millions of Muslims to hate us, and torn up the Geneva Convention and half the Constitution in pursuit of policies like torture, kidnapping, assassination-by-robot and warrantless detention…”
Trump Has A Christmas Eve Meltdown As His Presidency Crumbles article from PoliticusUSA. –
Since he can’t waste taxpayer money and his time golfing while enriching himself at our expense, Donald has once again take to Twitter to spread his bull shit and lies while his failed presidency continues to implode:
Virtually every Democrat we are dealing with today strongly supported a Border Wall or Fence. It was only when I made it an important part of my campaign, because people and drugs were pouring into our Country unchecked, that they turned against it. Desperately needed!

Maybe Trump doesn’t even want a wall – here’s why article from The Raw Story. –
Every illicit act Trump carries out is associated with fundraising to enrich himself illegally and the wall is no different, especially since he knows it’s not going to be built:

Donald Trump, Walled Off From Reality article from The Huffington Post. –
Inconvenient truth is wreaking major havoc in Trump’s delusional alternate reality and as usual, he’s not handling it well:
“What will it take for Republicans in Congress to conclude that President Donald Trump has outlived his political usefulness to them, and is dangerously unglued? We may soon find out.
In one ring of the circus, Trump abruptly decided to pull all U.S. forces out of Syria. This prompted the resignation of both Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and anti-ISIS coalition envoy Brett McGurk.
These guys, unlike many other former Trump appointees, didn’t get fired by tweet. They quit in principled protest, something all too rare in American public life. McGurk sent an email to his staff, declaring: “The recent decision by the president came as a shock and was a complete reversal of policy that was articulated to us. It left our coalition partners confused and our fighting partners bewildered.”
Trump’s reversal also prompted much sharper criticism than usual from his slavish Senate allies. Lindsey Graham, ordinarily a Trump toady, told Vice President Mike Pence: “If Obama had done this, all of us would be going nuts because it’s such a bad idea. The job of the Congress is to hold the executive branch accountable. He’s the commander in chief, but he needs to be held accountable for his decisions. And I want hearings as soon as possible.”…”
Donald Trump Tweets: ‘I Am All Alone (Poor Me) In White House’ On Christmas Eve article from Deadline. –
Trump is all alone because of his stupid notion to shut down the government after his right-wing whack jobs goaded him into doing it so his pity me party isn’t going to work:
I am all alone (poor me) in the White House waiting for the Democrats to come back and make a deal on desperately needed Border Security. At some point the Democrats not wanting to make a deal will cost our Country more money than the Border Wall we are all talking about. Crazy!

“WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump set off a Christmas social media storm when he asked whether a 7-year-old was too old to believe in Santa Claus, capping a week of plunging stocks, a government shutdown and the U.S. defense chief’s unceremonious departure.
Twitter lit up like a Christmas tree after Trump made his remark during a holiday event with first lady Melania Trump, taking calls from children calling the North American Aerospace Defense Command Santa tracker.
A Christmas tradition, the tracker delights children with “real-time” updates on Saint Nick’s Christmas Eve journey.
In one of the Christmas Eve calls, Trump chatted with a 7-year-old…”
