Misadventures of a minority-elect President 180

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 illegitimate, minority-elect president with his latest quest to destroy working Americans and the safety nets they pay for their entire adult working lives based on debunked fallacies and lies, America’s worst-ever president thinks Executive Orders are laws – revealing that he truly is dumber than a 4th grader, our impotent imbecile still stocking the swamp with crooks and liars, Trump – a spineless pussy that deferred serving multiple times – has a history of bashing the Military, once again our Loser-in-Chief shoots himself in the foot while creating yet another monumental crisis over his treatment of Military Veterans killed in action, proving once again that he is nothing but a fraud that should be behind bars and not in the White House, how Trump’s distractions are covering up the damage being done to this country by him and the miscreants in his administration, Gen. Kelly confirms that Trump lied while trying to blame everyone else and much more.

Trump Shows He’s Dumber Than A 4th Graders As He Doesn’t Know That Executive Orders Aren’t Laws article from PoliticusUSA. –
http://www.politicususa.com/2017/10/17/trump-shows-dumber-4th-grader-executive-orders-laws-2.html

Saying he’s dumber than 4th graders may be giving him a little too much credit:

“President Trump thinks that he abolished Obamacare with an executive order, thus proving he is dumber than any elementary school child who has ever taken social studies.

The President said, “Obamacare is finished. It’s dead. It’s gone. It’s no longer — you shouldn’t even mention. It’s gone. There is no such thing as Obamacare anymore.”

This was some wishful thinking on Trump’s part because, in a democracy, presidents can’t make laws go away with executive orders. Trump has consistently struggled with the concept that he can’t rule unilaterally with executive orders. During his first cabinet meeting, he mixed executive orders and legislation to make his list of accomplishments seem bigger.

Trump may hope that people will stop talking about Obamacare, but the only way that the law can be repealed is through congressional action…”

Destroying the lives of millions of Americans – which is tantamount to genocide – due to your profound ignorance isn’t going to help our national embarrassment at all:

“Trump is celebrating his health care executive order which is going to increase insurance premiums by 20% while throwing 1 million people off of their health insurance.

This is the messed up world that exists between Trump’s ears:

Trump’s executive order doesn’t expand access or make healthcare more affordable.

Eminem Delivers a Critique as Vulgar as the President article from The Atlantic. –
https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/10/the-day-eminems-middle-finger-became-presidential/542580/

The rapper did a freestyle take down of our dimwitted dip shit during the BET awards that is gaining national attention:

“The rapper Eminem performed a freestyle takedown of President Trump on television Tuesday, calling out the hypocrisy of his extravagant travel, his bumbling incompetence, and his disrespect for a POW before dubbing him “Donald the bitch.”

The performance was perhaps the most prominent instance of a white celebrity defending the NFL players protesting the killing of African Americans by police officers.

And the flagrant disrespect the entertainer showed for the president felt like karma, and not just because Trump has called the protesting NFL players sons of bitches. Recall that during last year’s Republican primary, Trump was able to excel in part by taking advantage of the fact that he had no respectability to maintain, no sense of shame or decency to limit him, and no reputation for good character to lose.

None of the other candidates could pull off bragging about their penis size on stage, insulting a rival’s wife, or appending juvenile nicknames to competing pols. The Access Hollywood tape would’ve sunk any other candidate. But why would it lower anyone’s opinion of a man who gave a radio host permission to call his daughter “a piece of ass”?…”

We begin today’s misadventures of our lame duck popular vote losing president with yet more proof that he has major issues with telling the truth as his lies about immigrants continue imploding, still catering to the minority of morons that support him instead of the overwhelming majority who oppose him and everything the GOP is busily trying to do, a closer look at the Trump’s idiocracy and his lacking mental capacities, America’s most corrupt president can’t understand why bribing foreign officials is illegal as he tries to blackmail Congress into paying for his duplicitous border wall, when your impotent leader is a sexual predator, case for impeaching the ignorant numb nut we call president for obstructing justice meticulously laid out, it appears that staffers in the White House really are running an adult day care center for their minority-elect leader – who continues providing us with facts confirming that he is indeed the perfect argument for birth control and so much more.

Trump is the most powerless president in American history article from Salon. –
https://www.salon.com/2017/10/07/the-most-powerless-president-in-american-history/

Abusing the power of his office allows our national embarrassment to believe he’s important while his list of broken promises continue piling up:

“Let’s begin with the war in Afghanistan — because it’s a war, and American soldiers are dying over there; because according to the Congressional Research Service, it costs the American taxpayer $3.9 million to keep one American soldier over there for one year; because according to the Cost of War Project at Brown University, our presence in Afghanistan has cost us $2 trillion over 16 years. Think of it. Two trillion dollars. That would have provided 38 years of funding for the Department of Education, 36 years of funding for the State Department, and 148 years of funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which covers 9 million underprivileged children, the funding for which Congress just let lapse. By any measure you can think of, we have spent a staggering amount of money over the 16 years we have been there. Which is at least part of the reason Donald J. Trump, as a private citizen and as a candidate for president, repeatedly said he wanted to get us out of Afghanistan.

Back in 2013, Trump went on what we would now call a tweet storm over the war in Afghanistan, perhaps road-testing what would become his policy of putting “America first.” “We should leave Afghanistan immediately. No more wasted lives. If we have to go back in, we go in hard & quick. Rebuild the US first,” he tweeted. Later, he tweeted: “Let’s get out of Afghanistan. Our troops are being killed by the Afghanis we train and we waste billions there. Nonsense! Rebuild the USA.”

Two years later, as a candidate for president in October of 2015, Trump told CNN’s New Day program: “We made a terrible mistake getting involved there in the first place. We had real brilliant thinkers that didn’t know what the hell they were doing. And it’s a mess. It’s a mess. And at this point, you probably have to (stay) because that thing will collapse about two seconds after they leave. Just as I said that Iraq was going to collapse after we leave.”

Two more years have passed, and Trump is now the president of the United States, and what did he do back in mid-August? Did he announce a new trillion-dollar infrastructure plan that would “rebuild the USA” with projects to repair roads and bridges and put “world class” airports where we now have “third world” airports? No, what he did was announce that he would be sending 4,000 more troops to Afghanistan in a kind of mini-surge, adding to the approximately 8,400 we already have over there. He announced the troop increase in order to accomplish “obliterating ISIS, crushing al-Qaida, preventing the Taliban from taking over Afghanistan and stopping mass terror attacks against America before they emerge,” goals pretty much indistinguishable from those of his predecessors, Presidents Obama and Bush, whose Afghanistan policies he was criticizing in his tweets and statements on the campaign trail last year…”

Today’s misadventures of our minority-elect president begin with an overwhelming majority blasting his tardy, irresponsible response to Puerto Rico’s hurricane crisis – despite his self-absorbed lies that he and his administration get an A+ over how they handled it, Trump’s Russia scandal is growing more interesting with each passing day, insight into the multiple deferments used by Trump to avoid having to serve and his cowardice of bullying those that do, a look at the incredible corruption of an illegitimate, minority-elect president and the deviants that work for him, how our fake president’s war on fake news is actually a war on reality – which is starkly different from his delusional version of reality in his alternate universe, once again our impotent idiot tries to turn a crisis into being all about him, Trump is a textbook racist, the moron in the White House can’t handle the fact that one of his own actually called him a moron, it could take years to undo the damage done to this country by our popular vote losing psychopath in the White House and much more.

Nixon Lawyer: Donald Trump Abused Pardon Power When He Freed Joe Arpaio article from Time on Yahoo! News. –
https://www.yahoo.com/news/nixon-lawyer-donald-trump-abused-151511604.html

Our gift that keeps on giving has no regard for Law or seperation of powers and will eventually dig himself a hole he won’t be able to climb out of:

“During the last two days of his embattled presidency, Richard Nixon made a rare principled decision. With the Watergate special prosecutor and congressional impeachment proceedings closing in, he rejected last-minute requests for pardons from his two former top aides, the men who could most damagingly testify against him. Unfortunately, while dust is settling on Donald Trump’s pardon of former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, its message suggests a much cruder view of the pardon power, and sets a dangerous precedent for the months to come.

Most pardons attract little attention. Over the course of a presidency, typical presidents, with the advice of the Department of Justice, pardon or commute the sentences of hundreds of people who have moved beyond their crimes, and long after all investigations have ended. Sometimes, presidents issue pardons to try to help the nation move past bitter divisions, such Gerald Ford’s pardon of Nixon and Jimmy Carter’s general pardon of Vietnam draft dodgers. And occasionally, presidents issue pardons to friends, relatives, or supporters, and even at the request of a foreign government, such as Bill Clinton’s controversial pardon of fugitive financier Marc Rich.

But never has a president embroiled in scandal used the pardon power to protect himself. Nixon’s refusal provides useful history. On March 1, 1974, a federal grand jury indicted former chief of staff H.R. Haldeman, former chief domestic advisor John Ehrlichman, and five other aides for criminal conspiracy stemming from the Watergate cover-up. The president was exposed as well. To be sure, the Department of Justice took the position that a president cannot be indicted while in office. But the grand jury named Nixon as an unindicted co-conspirator. And before Ford pardoned him, he risked future prosecution.

On August 7, Haldeman and Ehrlichman, employing different channels, approached the White House and asked for pardons. They did not need to point out that the risk of prison time makes people more likely to testify. Yet Nixon rejected their request. The next day, he announced his resignation and submitted himself to fate. Gerald Ford later pardoned Nixon on September 8, 1974. Haldeman and Ehrlichman each served 18 months in prison. Neither ever fully testified under oath; their accounts of the Watergate cover-up are found only in their White House recordings, and Nixon’s secret tapes…”

Opinion: After The Malignancy of Donald Trump It’s Up To Us To #MAGA article from PoliticusUSA. –
http://www.politicususa.com/2017/09/30/opinion-malignancy-donald-trump-maga.html

Our dimwitted dip shit’s presidency has been a massive failure:

“A little over eight months after the inauguration of Donald Trump, the fears of 66,000,000 people have been realized. The President of the United States is not befitting of his position, as he has been proven to be an instrument of historical incompetence and divisiveness. America has been thrust into civil unrest and political upheaval, that hasn’t been witnessed in decades. The only saving grace for the future advancement of the world’s most celebrated democracy is us…We The People.

Our current administration has been the embodiment of malfeasance and corruption. The Republican Party represents a tired and outdated model of governing. The malicious disregard for the rule of law and offensive approach to critical social issues has left our country battered and bruised. It cannot be sensibly argued that we, in fact, have no leadership and our way of life, is a rudderless ship in the middle of the ocean taking on water. We The People have to power to plug the holes and lead America safely to shore.

We must focus our collective energy and resources to ensure that the Grand Old Party is a thing of the past, struck down by a blow of concentrated cohesiveness, swung by a coalition of common sense, compassion, and intelligence. Our citizens can no longer be hoodwinked by the pomp and circumstance of an empty-headed failed television star, thirsty for power for the sake of power itself.

Putting aside the recent controversy surrounding kneeling during the national anthem, it should be mentioned that sacrifices were made for the right to vote. The right to vote in this country cost countless lives, and somehow it has been overlooked on the spectrum of our most vital human rights…”

President Trump Should Attack Toxic Inequality, Not The NFL article from Forbes. –
https://www.forbes.com/sites/jameshcarr/2017/09/28/president-trump-should-attack-toxic-inequality-not-the-nfl/#2213b5ff7f2d

But he won’t because his attacks on the NFL – like the rest of his delusional rants – are nothing but a distraction from his failed, imploding presidency:

“Last year, San Francisco quarterback, Colin Kaepernick began his peaceful and dignified protest of racial inequality in America, at the same time candidate Donald Trump was telling Black Americans to vote for him because he’d fix their crumbling cities.

According to Trump, “African Americans have sacrificed so much for this nation. . . . Yet, too many African Americans have been left behind.” He said rebuilding of America’s cities would be a priority for his administration.

Now that NFL players across the League have joined the protest to address a problem the President has endorsed, by taking a knee instead of standing while the national anthem is played, Trump is incensed, tweeting that owners should fire these players.

The President’s condemnation of football players who are peacefully protesting for a moment at the start of a game stands in sharp contract to his near-indifference toward the white supremacist who, in Charlottesville, took the life of Heather Heyer, an innocent woman who was also peacefully exercising her right of free speech…”

Trump Has Been Losing to the NFL for Decades article from The Daily Beast. –
http://www.thedailybeast.com/donald-trumps-long-love-hate-relationship-with-football-and-pro-sports

There is a lot of darkness in Trump’s delusional, mentally unbalanced mind towards the NFL since his failed bid to buy a team years ago so he tries to pawn his non-existent superiority off on everyone else in everything he does:

“So President Donald Trump has taken back NBA champion Stephen Curry’s invitation to the White House, had his press secretary declare that it was a “fireable offense” for ESPN anchor Jemele Hill to call him a white supremacist in a conversation on Twitter, and called on National Football League team owners to fire players who refuse to stand for the national anthem. He also called those players he wants fired “sons of bitches,” because I guess he needed a heat check.

In each instance, the target of Trump’s petty ire was a black sports figure publicly rejecting his Make America Great Again siren song at a time when members of marginalized groups are speaking up about the existential threat posed by a president appealing to the surging tide of white supremacy. It is quite the trick for a president to publicly belittle African Americans while ignoring freshly ravaged Latino Americans in blacked-out Puerto Rico, but Trump somehow makes it seem as natural as jumping on Twitter to respond to whatever mess Fox News just reported.

But Trump is an equal opportunity grudge-holder and score-settler, whose call to fans to boycott the NFL is a direct shot at the wealthy white businessmen—many of whom supported his campaign—who rejected him from their club.

It was less than three years ago that Trump tried and failed to buy a NFL franchise. “The @nfl games are so boring now that actually, I’m glad I didn’t get the [Buffalo] Bills. Boring games, too many flags, too soft,” is how the Donald summed up his failure, which was really just a matter of Buffalo Sabres owner Paul Pegula outbidding him by a reported $400,000. “Football has become soft like our country has become soft,” said Trump on the 2016 campaign trail, clearly showing none of the classic behavioral traits of a rejected paramour…”

The bloviating butt wipe we call president picked yet another Twitter battle he can’t win:

“Donald Trump’s feud with professional athletes escalated rapidly on Saturday, with the most high-profile player in the NBA taking to Twitter to lambast the president.

Responding to Trump’s childish temper tantrum about Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, LeBron James called the president a “bum” and said that is used to be a “great honor” to go to the White House before he showed up.

The Cleveland star’s tweet:

While Curry and James are often facing off against each other on the basketball court – they’ve clashed in the last three NBA Finals – the reckless man in the White House has given them a reason to join forces…”

Small donors are not paying Trump’s legal bills. It’s worse. article from Think Progress. –
https://thinkprogress.org/small-donors-are-not-paying-trumps-legal-bills-its-worse-2f70371d35af/

Despite it being immoral, it is not illegal – though it probably should be – for Trump to use RNC funds to pay for the legal fees to keep him and his ilk out of prison:

“Donald Trump is using funds from both the Republican National Committee (RNC) and his re-election campaign to cover his legal fees connected to the Russia investigation. The RNC is also footing the legal bill for Trump’s son, Don Jr., who is also caught up in the investigation being conducted by special counsel Robert Mueller.

According to a Tuesday report by Reuters, President Donald Trump would be the first president in modern campaign finance history to use these funds to cover the costs of a criminal probe. Reuters notes this is legal because the Federal Election Commission allows for use of private campaign funds to pay for legal costs incurred “as a candidate or elected official.”

Trump, who has claimed to have a net worth of $10 billion dollars, used RNC funds to pay his personal lawyer John Dowd $100,000 and an additional $131,250 to pay Jay Sekulow, another attorney representing Trump who frequently appears on TV. On top of those payments, the RNC also paid nearly $200,000 for Trump Jr.’s lawyers.

While the president’s reelection campaign fund solicits money from small donors, the RNC is not using these funds for Trump’s legal bills. Rather, the money is being paid through a separate RNC legal defense fund. This fund attracts almost exclusively large donors and can accept up to $101,700 per year from each individual or corporate PAC…”
