Misadventures of a minority-elect President 203

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:

Trump’s campaign using a photo of a Florida school shooting survivor in an email asking for donations begins today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president*, Trump is methodically destroying the systems in place to protect every American from fraudulent financial institutions, how Trump’s tantrums over his Russia scandal distract from the miscreants – crooks and liars – he surrounds himself with, the profoundly ignorant delusions from our cowardly draft-dodging president* are growing more egregious with each passing day, Trump obviously doesn’t know what a ‘witch hunt’ is, investigations into Trump’s finances will prove extremely entertaining, some of the predicted dire disasters from Trump’s fraudulent tax reform scam are coming to fruition, Trump provides yet more ammo to add to his growing list of obstructions of justice, the freak show that supports our dubious Orange dip shit is freaking out because he wants to take their guns away, only 406 days in office and Trump has already told almost 2,500 lies and much more.

Our national embarrassment’s Russia scandal is distracting from the scandals created by the miscreants in his administration – crooks and liars – Trump surrounds himself with:

“There was a time when the White House’s frequent denials of collusion with Russia appeared largely defensive. Over time, however, their primary purpose has morphed. These days, the denials serve instead to distract from the ever-clearer picture of a president surrounded by crooks and liars.

“Consistently we have said there was no collusion,” Ivanka Trump told NBC News Monday. “There was no collusion. And we believe that Mueller will do his work and reach that same conclusion.” That echoes her father and a White House statement from February 16, after Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted a group of Russians for interfering in the election. “President Donald J. Trump … is glad to see the Special Counsel’s investigation further indicates—that there was NO COLLUSION between the Trump campaign and Russia and that the outcome of the election was not changed or affected,” the press secretary wrote.

Collusion with Russia may or may not turn out to be a real scandal, depending on what Mueller finds, but it is not the only scandal. (Indeed, while the question of whether any crime was committed remains open, the contacts with Russia that are already known, from George Papadopoulos to the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, make these denials ring hollow.) The scale of dishonesty and criminality that is now apparent is an enormous scandal in its own right.

On Friday, Rick Gates pleaded guilty to conspiracy against the United States and making false statements. He faced a much longer slate of charges, but agreed to cooperate with Mueller. Gates’s troubles with the truth were so severe that he went to the outlandish length of lying to Mueller during a meeting about a plea deal. (It didn’t work, and ended up producing one of the charges to which he pleaded guilty.) Gates came into the Trump orbit through his mentor and business partner Paul Manafort, who served for a time as Trump campaign chairman, but that shouldn’t cloak his deep involvement in Trump world: He was deputy chairman of the campaign, staying on after Manafort was ousted in August 2016; he served as deputy chair of the Trump inaugural committee; and he helped found America First Policies, an outside support group, remaining there until he was pushed out as his legal troubles increased…”
