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:

Trying to save face after his North Korea political theater failed begins today’s misadventures of our malignant minority-elect president* as it appears that North Korea has now restarted its nuclear program much to his chagrin, the Don has been lying about all of his scandals from day one and now it’s finally catching up with him, each passing week puts Donnie more out of touch with reality, Donald’s budget proposal shows just how delusional he is and how stupid he thinks we all are, Trump keeps sounding more and more like Nixon as his delusional denials are belied by his guilty actions, the Don’s broken promises and lies as made evident by his dystopian ‘budget’ are going to come back and haunt him while helping further destroy the GOP too, inciting violence to those that are stupid enough to support him is going to get our wannabe Don in deep crap and much more.

Once Mueller’s investigation is finished, Trump will still have part of Congress crawling up his ass with a microscope and it isn’t going to end well for his criminal regime or his equally corrupt family.

For someone who keeps claiming innocents while acting guilty as hell, the Donald keeps finding new ways – albeit unsuccessfully – to lie about it.

What did the president know and when did he know it? Trump knew it all, from the beginning article from Salon. –

The Don’s history of lying about his endless corruption has been blatantly obvious to anyone paying attention:

“Every week seems to bring another Trump scandal. There are so many now we’re going to have to start numbering them. Up until now the sheer volume of alleged misdeeds and malfeasance has actually worked in the president’s favor. There is so much out there that it’s hard to keep the whole picture straight in your mind and that has the weird effect of making things seem less serious than they actually are.

We know that the Trump base and the vast majority of Republican voters still support the president and think it’s all nothing but a witch hunt. They are mesmerized by the president and propagandized by Fox News and other right-wing media. But I would imagine that even people who don’t like Trump but don’t follow all this closely or in much detail wonder whether maybe the whole thing is just a collection of complaints that don’t really add up to anything.

That’s why it’s meaningful when the likes of Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen of Axios, journalists whom the political establishment sees as avatars of acceptable mainstream thinking, decide that it’s time to take stock of how many scandals are now being investigated and how wide the scope of the alleged criminality and corruption has become. It’s rather sobering. On Thursday they wrote out a partial list, entitling it, “The biggest political scandal in American history.”

VandeHei and Allen report that historians tell them there are only two previous scandals that even come close to what we are dealing with now: One is Watergate, and even Americans who weren’t alive at the time have heard plenty about that one. The other would be Teapot Dome, a bribery scandal under the manifestly corrupt Warren G. Harding administration in the 1920s…”

Trump train derailed from Pinterest

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 speculation over whether he will only be a one-term president – despite the fact that he may not even last through his first term as his corruption scandals continue imploding his already failed presidency, Donnie’s fraudulent past is going to haunt him and his entire family for years to come since Rico Laws could end up taking them down, how lying about being innocent on Twitter doesn’t make it true, with his house of cards about to be revealed it all its dubious glory the lies coming from Trump are growing exponentially, the Donald is already trying to delegitimize the 2020 elections because he knows he’s going to lose big time and much more.

Trump, cohen and the paradox of believing proven liars article from AOL. –
https://www.aol.com/article/news/2019/03/01/trump-cohen-and-the-paradox-of-believing-proven-liars/23681988/

The hypocrisy of Republicans trying to paint Cohen as a liar when all Trump does is lie about everything is comical:

“Throughout Michael Cohen’s testimony this week before the House Oversight Committee, Republicans repeated what would seem to be a simple rule of human nature: Never trust a person who has been proven to be a liar.

“I want everyone in this room to think about this, the first announced witness for the 116th Congress is a guy who is going to prison in two months for lying to Congress,” Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said in his opening remarks.

But as more Republicans on the committee followed Jordan’s lead, that strategy quickly hit a wall.

“You’re a pathological liar. You don’t know truth from falsehood,” Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz, scolded Cohen, who then swiftly turned the tables on his interrogators…”

Two term Trump from Pinterest

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:

Potential treason by GOP leadership in the House and Senate begins today’s misadventures of our malignant minority-elect president* as they colluded with him to keep his crimes hidden – meaning they are just as guilty as he is, Trump’s treasonous actions are becoming glaringly evident, how Donnie’s illegal ‘National Emergency’ highlights his despotic delusions of grandeur, how the Donald’s delusions are getting worse as his alternate reality continues imploding, Donald J. Trump – the most corrupt president* in U.S. history – has made himself completely irrelevant, follow the money to see why our moronic president* declared his fraudulent national emergency and a lot of answers become crystal clear, when you listen to Cohen’s testimony to Congress it becomes glaringly evident why Trump and his GOP enablers are so terrified of him, the Don’s North Korea ‘summit’ – like his presidency – was a massive failure and much more.

Yet another case of the Donald blatantly trying to obstruct justice to try and save his sorry ass that backfired miserably…

Trump’s Efforts to Subvert Justice Reportedly Thwarted by People Just Ignoring Him article from Splinter News. –
https://splinternews.com/trump-s-efforts-to-subvert-justice-reportedly-thwarted-1832731169

There will eventually be hell to pay for aiding and abetting the treasonous felon currently occupying the White House – though currently he’s only an unindicted co-conspirator – so ignoring him is probably wise:

“The New York Times on Tuesday published a massive exposé on President Donald Trump’s ongoing efforts to subvert, deflect, and in some cases outright end the various investigations into his alleged criminal misdeeds. It’s a compelling if exhausting read, which goes to great lengths to show how Trump—increasingly frustrated by the prospect of actually facing serious consequences for his actions—has spent the past two years working to manipulate the levers of the criminal justice system to suit his own needs.

And yet there’s an undeniable subtext in the Times’ reporting: That Trump’s worst, most authoritarian inclinations are frequently stymied by the fact that those around him simply ignore his more outlandish directives.

Here’s a good example, in which the president asked then-acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker to reinstate U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Geoffrey S. Berman—perceived by Trump to be a friend—to oversee the SDNY’s investigation into the president’s businesses, after Berman had recused himself (emphasis mine throughout).

He made the call to Mr. Whitaker to see if he could put Mr. Berman in charge of the New York investigation. The inquiry is run by Robert Khuzami, a career prosecutor who took over after Mr. Berman, whom Mr. Trump appointed, recused himself because of a routine conflict of interest…”
