Misadventures of a minority-elect President 288

Hitler 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:

Using his Ministry of Propaganda to spread his lies begins today’s misadventures of our malignant minority-elect president’s as he once again took to Fox faux news to try and deceive everyone while desperately trying to save his ignorant ass and justify his government shutdown as his delusions keep growing, why his history of fraud – and trying to cover up his criminal actions with secrecy – makes it imperative to find out what was said and done during his two hour meeting with his Sugar Daddy Putin in Helsinki, once again Donnie rants against the media for telling the truth instead of talking about his delusional ‘success’, media is starting to call Trump out on his lies and he’s not handling it well, fabricating and lying about a non-existent border crisis is going to get the Don in more legal hot water, having no credibility is proving problematic for the Don as he uses Hitler tactics to try and make the public believe we have an immigration crisis when we don’t and everyone – with half a brain – knows that all he ever does is lie, as expected the Donald used his prime time speech to lie and misinform the public about a non-existent border and humanitarian crisis – the only humanitarian crisis at the border is the one created by him – but he wasn’t stupid enough to try and declare a national emergency and much more.

Trump Uses Fox To Claim Unpaid Government Workers Agree With Him 100% On Shutdown article from PoliticusUSA. –
https://www.politicususa.com/2019/01/06/trump-government-workers.html

Yet again Trump relied on his Ministry of Propaganda to push his lies about government workers supporting his shutdown – they don’t – while desperately trying to save face for his duplicitous actions:

Donald’s delusions are getting worse and, with any luck, eventually he’ll end up in the Psyche ward of a prison – though regardless his alternate reality is about to come crashing down.

The man doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground but Trump claims he’s an expert on everything – yet more proof that he is delusional and unfit to hold the office he holds:

We Need to Know What Happened When Trump Was Left Alone With Putin article from The Daily Beast. –
https://www.thedailybeast.com/we-need-to-know-what-happened-when-trump-was-left-alone-with-putin

Given Donnie’s history of fraud and secrecy when trying to cover up his premeditated criminal endeavors – which, like his presidency will, always fail and how his self-induced crises are compounded by his profound ignorance – it is imperative to know what happened during those two hours he met with his Sugar Daddy in Helsinki:

“Donald Trump spent two hours alone with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki in July and we still have no idea what was specifically said or agreed between two of the most powerful men in the world. (Only two interpreters, bound to silence, were present.)

How much does this matter?

Quite a lot, probably. First off, there are new concerns about Trump’s continuing susceptibility to talking points that can have only one source – Russian propaganda. More of this later. Second, it belongs in a long trail of events that have either deliberately left serious blanks in the historical record or delayed by many years discovery of the truth.

We live in a moment in America when the discovery of information is in daily hand-to-hand combat with the deliberate suppression of information. For the second time in recent history the fate of a presidency might well rest on the unhindered discovery and exposure of essential evidence. Nothing is as central to the health of a democracy as overcoming a cover-up…”

Trump’s many lies 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 potential serious health issues happening in National Parks as a result of his racist border wall shutdown, Trump’s legal woes are about to get much worse, an overwhelming majority blame Trump for the shutdown which he refuses to end because he says it’ll make him look foolish – though no more foolish than he already does, Donnie got jealous with Democrats making all the headlines so he had to create yet another worthless distraction for attention, Trump’s delusions and desperation are getting the best of him, Donald’s despotic delusions of grandeur – as well as his growing desperation – are once again on full display as his bluster over his racist border wall continues despite his farcical delusions that the majority supports it, still trying to blame everyone else for his profound corruption and stupidity and much more.

Trump may have intentionally shut his government down to impede the investigations into his corruption but those investigating his criminal actions are still busy:

“As many government employees are on furlough, the federal prosecutors investigating Russia influence in the 2016 elections continued to make filings and take care of business.

The latest news that will cause Donald Trump to lose sleep is that a Joint Status Report Under Seal has been filed in the W. Samuel Patten criminal matter.

Patten is a lobbyist and political consultant who was a close partner of Russian spy Konstantin Kilimnik, as well as working for the parent of Cambridge Analytica and working with Paul Manafort…”

We begin today’s misadventures of our malignant minority-elect president* with a look at some of his more prevalent low lights – and there were many – from 2018, the con artist in the White House wants you to believe the tanking stock market isn’t his fault – when it is, Trump lied – which isn’t surprising given the fact that truth plays absolutely no role in his alternate universe and never comes out of his mouth – when he said Federal workers supported the shut down over his racist border wall, Donald’s delusions are becoming more problematic for him, the impossibility of choosing Trump’s ‘lie of the year’ when his entire illegitimate presidency is predicated on nothing but lies, how the Donald keeps tightening the rope around his own neck – and how his fraudulent business dealings and so-called charity are going to end up destroying him, 6 in 10 people – the majority – believe Donald should be impeached or censured plus much more.

As Trump Claims Workers Support Shutdown for Border Wall, Unpaid Federal Employees Set Record Straight With ‘Shutdown Stories’ article from Common Dreams. –
https://www.commondreams.org/news/2018/12/26/trump-claims-workers-support-shutdown-border-wall-unpaid-federal-employees-set

Once again Trump lied to try and justify his delusions of everyone wanting his racist border wall:

“As President Donald Trump on Tuesday claimed without a shred of evidence that “many” furloughed or unpaid federal workers support the ongoing government shutdown because they want “funding for the wall,” public employees and their family members who say they have been harmed by the lapse in government funding took to social media to set the record straight.

“My husband is furloughed due to the Trump shutdown,” a Twitter user named Nancy wrote on Tuesday. “This is a very stressful time, and believe me, my husband does not want that wall.”

The hashtag #ShutdownStories quickly went viral as federal workers shared with the world how they have been affected by the partial government shutdown, which reached its fifth day on Wednesday with no end in sight.

Demanding $5 billion in funding for his racist border wall, Trump has warned the shutdown could last “a very long time.”…”

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.

https://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/trump-threatens-democrats-shutdown-last-very-long-time

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…”

Two years of intentional damage to the U.S. by our wannabe dictator and his corrupt cabal should be criminal:

“From The Washington Post:

According to CBP records, the girl and her father were taken into custody about 10 p.m. Dec. 6 south of Lordsburg, N.M., as part of a group of 163 people who approached U.S. agents to turn themselves in. More than eight hours later, the child began having seizures at 6:25 a.m., CBP records show. Emergency responders, who arrived soon after, measured her body temperature at 105.7 degrees, and according to a statement from CBP, she “reportedly had not eaten or consumed water for several days.”

After a helicopter flight to Providence Children’s Hospital in El Paso, the child went into cardiac arrest and “was revived,” according to the agency. “However, the child did not recover and died at the hospital less than 24 hours after being transported,” CBP said. The agency did not release the name of the girl or her father, but the father remains in El Paso awaiting a meeting with Guatemalan consular officials, according to CBP. The agency is investigating the incident to ensure appropriate policies were followed, it said.

And before the inevitable trolling begins, as soon as this child was taken into the custody of the United States Border Patrol, she became its responsibility and nobody else’s. At that point, it doesn’t matter if she had walked here from Guatemala, or Guam, or Jupiter. Once she was in custody, the child’s health and well-being became the responsibility of the United States government. It became the responsibility of the United States government to monitor her for any sign of exposure…”

Trump Can’t Stop Confessing article from The Atlantic. –
https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2018/12/trump-cant-stop-confessing/577837/

How an imbecilic president* whose corruption is nothing short of astonishing keeps implicating himself with his words and his deeds:

“Donald Trump can’t stop telling on himself.

Just two years into his presidency, the New York real-estate mogul turned politician faces at least two separate criminal investigations, while half a dozen former advisers, including his former campaign chair, deputy campaign chair, national-security adviser, foreign-policy adviser, and personal attorney have all pleaded guilty to or been convicted of serious crimes. That’s even more remarkable when you consider that the American legal system makes white-collar crimes difficult to prove, by making guilt conditional on a defendant’s state of mind, a notoriously high standard.

Nevertheless, Trump has done his best to ensure that we all know what he’s thinking, even as his legal peril grows. Last Friday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York claimed in a filing that Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, had been directed during the campaign to pay hush money to women who claimed to have had affairs with the president. Those payments, according to the filing, were laundered through shell corporations and reimbursed by the president’s private company. Effectively, the president’s own Justice Department accused him of ordering his personal attorney to commit a felony.

The standard for criminal violations of campaign-finance laws, though, turns on “knowing and willful” violations of those laws. So the president would have had to know that it was illegal, and ordered Cohen to make the payments anyway…”

A Presidency on Drugs article from The Nation. –
https://www.thenation.com/article/donald-trump-adhd-speed-presidency-drugs/

How having a fake president* manipulating the news cycles with his war on fake news is like a bad drug trip:

“I took my first hit of speed in 1970 during my freshman year in college. That little white pill—Dexedrine—was a revelation. It made whatever I was doing absolutely fascinating. Amphetamine sharpened my focus and banished all appetites except a hunger for knowledge. I spent that entire night writing 35 pages of hand-scrawled notes about a 35-page article by the philosopher Ludwig Feurbach, thereby convincing the professor who would become my adviser and mentor that I was absolutely fascinating.

Speed was definitely not a respectable drug in those days. I bought mine from a seedy hippie who hung out on the edge of campus with some of my edgier friends. My college was probably one of the few in the country whose infirmary actually prescribed Dexedrine for its students, presumably to keep us from buying it from guys like him.

Nowadays, respectable doctors all over the country prescribe speed for people with ADHD, under brands like Adderall and Ritalin. It does for them what it did for me—makes whatever they’re doing fascinating, allowing them to focus for many hours at a time. My students now don’t have to buy it on the street. They can cadge (or buy) it from friends with prescriptions. I sometimes wonder whether they think they have a choice about this, or whether it’s considered almost a dereliction of duty to write their papers without a chemical assist.

Of course, speed had its ugly side, and I’m hardly recommending it as a cure for boring classes or a boring life. Coming down is horrible, the prelude often to a nasty, gray depression. Campus lore said it intensified menstrual cramps and I believed it. (When you’re depressed, it’s certainly easy to believe that this month’s cramps are worse than the last batch.) In any case, I quickly realized that I liked the stuff far too much for my own good. I learned to drink coffee instead…”

Trump failed to fulfill two of his campaign promises regarding China and the Wall and now that Democrats are taking over one Chamber of Congress, he will inevitably fail – like he does with everything else…

A Complete Analysis Of Trump’s 97th Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt Media. –
https://rantt.com/trumps-97th-unpresidented-week-revealed-cohen-plea-collusion-evidence/

Each week of our lackluster lame duck president’s failed illegitimate tenure in the White House keeps getting more entertaining as his imminent demise creeps closer and closer:

“First, they said the Trump campaign had no contacts with the Russian government. Then, they said there was no collusion. Then, they said collusion isn’t a crime.

Now, as the walls are closing in, President Trump and his loyal sycophants have resorted to falsely painting Special Counsel Robert Mueller as a “rogue prosecutor” so their base won’t believe any of the damning developments.

This was the most significant week in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation thus far. “Individual 1,” the President of the United States, has now officially been named as a subject of Mueller’s probe. This strikes down conservatives’ primary talking point, claiming the guilty pleas have not pertained to collusion. This week’s developments had everything to do with collusion, or in more legal terms, Conspiracy Against The United States. We are now beginning to see an even clearer story of the 2016 Russian government-assisted version of Watergate.

All five of Trump associates who have been charged with crimes have now pleaded guilty and cooperated with Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen, who had already pleaded guilty to the Southern District of New York and led to Trump becoming an unindicted conspirator in two campaign finance felonies, is lucky number five…”

Misadventures of a minority-elect President 279

Evidence mountin 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:

We begin today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* with his despotic delusions of having a state-run TV network to show how great he is – except for the obvious fact that he isn’t, running the country the same way he runs his failed fraudulent businesses isn’t working out well for Donnie, Manafort isn’t the target that Mueller’s after – Trump is, evidence implicating the Donald is mounting and he’s freaking out because he knows he’s going down, Trump’s pernicious melt downs happening more frequently are quite revealing – albeit not in a good way for him, Trump’s endless corruption and ineptitude have been on full display for decades to anyone that has been paying attention, on the shit storm that is heading Trump’s way that is going to take him and his equally corrupt family down in flames, how Trump’s former attorney could end up putting the final nails in Trump coffin and so much more.

Trump’s lies are easy to disprove, so the fact that it bothers him that Mueller can back it up is rather comical:

Trump’s latest tantrum suggests Mueller is making him nervous article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/trumps-latest-tantrum-suggests-mueller-making-him-nervous

Donnie is in deep shit and he knows it now that his failed presidency is unraveling at a record pace:

“In a mini-tantrum yesterday, Donald Trump raised the prospect of Special Counsel Robert Mueller issuing a final report and wondered about its content. “Will he be putting in statements from hundreds of people closely involved with my campaign who never met, saw or spoke to a Russian during this period?” the president asked.

I’ll confess, I find questions like these oddly entertaining. Trump’s argument, in effect, is that some top members of his political operation held private communications with a foreign adversary during its attack on our election – but not everyone on his team did so.

It’s a framework with a rich rhetorical history. At the height of the war in Iraq, the Bush administration tried to focus on the positives, effectively arguing, “What about the areas in Iraq that aren’t on fire?”

A few years later, during Herman Cain’s presidential campaign, the Republican was confronted with allegations of sexual harassment. Cain responded at the time by effectively asking, “What about the women I knew who haven’t accused me of misconduct?” About a year ago, during Roy Moore’s Senate candidacy in Alabama, his supporters effectively argued, “What about the women in Alabama whom Moore didn’t target when they were teenagers?”…”

On how our cowardly, illegitimate president* is so afraid to face the truth that he makes up lies and fabrications to comfort himself and use as excuses for doing nothing.
