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:
Having a Comey recording in the White House would prove fatal for our minority-elect President, mulling a sweeping shake-up of his staff and cabinet after his very bad week – despite the obvious – which is only going to get worse, an explanation of our Liar-in-Chief’s credibility – or lack thereof – issues, Trump thinks he can get away with anything – which is rather ironic given the fact that it appears he never thinks before he speaks or does anything, Trump’s Russia scandal stars in Sunday morning political theater, another call for Trump’s impeachment from Harvard law professor, speculation about the removal of 3 of Trump’s stooges from key positions in his duplicitous cabinet, Dems fire another shot over the bow as they demand preservation of the ‘tapes’ – if they exist – for use in Trump’s upcoming Watergate scandal, Sessions exemplifies the problem of having a corrupt ‘Justice’ Department in bed with a corrupt White House, inconvenient data has no place in Trump’s land of delusion, GOP brown shirts are stuck in Trump’s train wreck presidency, Vice Chair of Trump’s bogus ‘Election Integrity’ sham confirms it’s all about suppressing voters and more.
Maddow: A Comey Tape Is Interesting Not Because Trump Recorded It, But Because It’s Subpoenable article from The Independent Journal Review. –
Sources say Comey hopes there is a tape, which is also interesting because not only would it be illegal, it would reveal that Trump has lied to whole time.
Scoop: Trump, irked at cabinet and staff, mulls sweeping shake-up article from Axios. –
Here’s some free advice Mr. President: Try looking in the mirror before you start blaming everyone else.
Is it time for Trump staff to lawyer up? article from Politico. –
With subpoenas coming from Congress and an active FBI investigation, it might not be a bad idea.
Trump’s dangerous credibility gap article from The Los Angeles Times. –
Trump and his miscreantic administration lost all credibility long ago:
“When Donald Trump was merely a real estate mogul, he exaggerated flamboyantly and reporters considered it charming: He promoted Trump Tower as a 68-story building, even though it has only 58 floors. When Trump was a presidential candidate, he lied enthusiastically, but that didn’t prevent him from winning: He insisted falsely that he opposed the Iraq war from the start, to cite only one of many instances.
Now Trump is president, and his old habits haven’t changed. He’s still spinning bald-faced untruths whenever it suits his purpose.
The difference now is that the stakes are higher, and the lies more consequential. Earlier presidents husbanded their credibility as a precious commodity; not Trump. His modern predecessors from Lyndon B. Johnson to Barack Obama needed years to open a “credibility gap”; Trump produced his in record time. That’s not merely a problem of ethics or integrity; it’s a practical problem too. Trump doesn’t seem to know it, but he’s hurting his ability to govern.
As one of Napoleon’s aides said under not-quite-similar circumstances, this is worse than a crime; it’s a blunder…”
