Misadventures of a minority-elect President 208

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 how an affair with a porn star could easily be the camel that breaks the back of his already failed presidency, the cruelty – not to mention illegalities – of Trump’s immigration policies, the many ways Trump’s presidency is a massive failure, how Trump’s toxicity is destroying the Republican Party, our nefarious narcissist – who keeps preaching about America first and making America great again – is violating American Federal laws and selling goods made in China, regardless of the consequences, our demented delusionist loves being the center of attention, gloating about the firing of a Deputy FBI Director is going to come back and bite our big Orange dumb ass, running the White House like a reality show is one of many reasons Trump is a threat to National Security, the more our moronic Liar-in-Chief opens his mouth the deeper the hole he digs, a look at the most recent failed week of Trump’s disastrous presidency, our Twitter tyrant’s meltdowns are becoming more frequent again plus much more.

Trump’s presidency is unravelling. But he won’t fall without a push article from The Guardian. –

The many ways our malignant minority-elect president’s* time in office has been a massive failure:

“Even by Donald Trump’s standards, Tuesday was extraordinary. First came the tweet that he had fired his secretary of state Rex Tillerson. Then a state department spokesman issued a statement claiming Tillerson was “unaware of the reason” for his dismissal, and had heard about it on Twitter. A few hours later the spokesman had been fired too. Meanwhile the lawyer of porn actor Stephanie Clifford (stage name: Stormy Daniels), who allegedly had an affair with Trump, warned the country to “buckle up” as Clifford sought to extract herself from her non-disclosure agreement so she could “publish any materials, such as text messages, photos and/or videos relating to the president that she may have in her possession”. Back in Washington, the Trump team announced it would be hiring John McEntee, Trump’s former personal assistant, as a senior adviser for campaign operations. The day before, McEntee had been escorted from the White House because he is under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security for serious financial crimes.

While all this was going on, voters in south-west Pennsylvania’s 18th district went to the polls in a byelection, in a district Republicans have held for the past 15 years. It was so safe that Democrats didn’t even bother contesting the last two elections. Trump trounced Hillary Clinton there by about 20 points. It should have been a shoo-in for the Republicans. By the end of the night Democrats were celebrating a wafer-thin victory, though this may yet be challenged.

Witnessing Trump’s presidency unravel so spectacularly provokes a perverse joy. The venality is so baroque, the vulgarity so ostentatious, the inconsistencies so stark, the incompetence so epic and the lies so brazen, it leaves you speechless. His vanity is without guile and the scandals that embroil him without end. Almost everything he says and does has been publicly contradicted, by himself, usually on Twitter. On Tuesday he said of Tillerson’s departure: “Rex and I have been talking about this a long time … We were not really thinking the same”.

On 1 December he tweeted: “The media has been speculating that I fired Rex Tillerson or that he would be leaving soon – FAKE NEWS! He’s not leaving and while we disagree on certain subjects, (I call the final shots) we work well together and America is highly respected again!” It’s amazing to think he ever imagined he could get away with it. And with each test at the ballot box it seems he can’t. Republicans have been crushed in elections around the country. Some defeats, like that of the alleged paedophile Roy Moore in Alabama, are unlikely to be repeated; others, like the gains across Virginia in November, indicate more sustained progress. There has been a relatively consistent swing of about 15 points to Democrats in state and congressional races that has seen them take over 40 seats from Republicans, including in states such as Florida and Wisconsin where Clinton lost in 2016. Midterm elections are almost never good for the party in the White House. On current trends, this November will be a disaster for Republicans…”

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:

The GOP dubiously trying to clear their fraudulent lying leader begins today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president*, why Trump and the miscreants still standing with him should be very worried about Mueller’s investigations, Trump’s fraudulent tax reform scam is proving more malignant than previously thought, our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator’s latest voter suppression plan smells dictatorial, yet more evidence that Trump lied about draining the swamp, how our lackluster lame duck president* is trying to make his failed presidency even worse, still deceptively trying to claim that he actually won the popular vote when in reality he lost bigly, our fraudulent Orange turd ball Loser-in-Chief is acting surprised and upset because his appointees and administration are actually as corrupt and stupid as he is, Trump’s despotic delusions of grandeur are becoming glaringly evident, our Ignoramus-in-Chief is now bragging about lying repeatedly, how Trump has made it egregiously evident that he is nothing but a fraudulent con man that does nothing but lie all the time plus a lot more.

Mueller’s Choice of Criminal Charges: Why the Trump Team Should Be Very Worried article from Slate. –

As I’ve stated a few time previously, there may not be much evidence of Trump’s personal collusion with Russia since his campaign handled most of it, but the many Money Laundering and Obstructions of Justice charges will bury his sorry ass.

Budget Deficit Will Go Up 31% Thanks To Trump Tax Cuts For Billionaires article from PoliticusUSA. –

Yet more evidence that Trump’s tax reform scam was nothing but a major fraud that will help bankrupt this country:

“It’s now official: the Trump-Ryan-McConnell tax cut plan for billionaires is bankrupting our country.

The United States Treasury Department said Monday that the federal budget deficit in February was significantly higher than a year ago, as is the budget deficit for the first five months of this budget year. According to the Treasury Department this year’s United States federal deficit will hit $873 billion, up a dangerous 31.3 percent from last year’s shortfall of $665.8 billion.

These numbers are based on President Donald Trump’s new budget projections which say that over the next decade, U.S. federal deficits will be approximately $7 trillion. When added to the existing federal debt of over $20 trillion, this level of projected deficit is not good news for America.

Obama had been working on decreasing the federal deficit but under Trump the government has reversed course and decided to let America’s debt soar while cutting taxes on the super-rich and big multi-national corporations. The deficit picture is of great concern now because of the $1.5 trillion in tax cuts in the tax bill that was passed in December…”

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:

Today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* begin with our national embarrassment’s being implicated in an intensifying scandal courtesy of his lawyer and a porn star, more Americans are waking up to the fact that they were conned by America’s worst-ever president*, many people are abandoning Trump’s sinking ship, why Trump’s despotic delusions of grandeur will never happen, America’s most corrupt-ever president* is personally responsible for intentionally creating much of the chaos that is imploding his failed presidency, in effortlessly racking up more charges against himself with speaking to witnesses in his ongoing Russia scandal Trump has taken his profound stupidity to a whole new level, it appears our mentally deranged dotard may get his meeting with little rocket man and much more.

The moron that is foolishly starting a trade war he can’t win knows absolutely nothing about how trade works.

Rural Americans Are Slowly Coming to the Realization Trump Played Them article from Alternet. –

And it only took them a little over a year to figure that out:

“Trump’s proposed Trade war isn’t resonating quite the way he anticipated in Rural America, where farmers are quick to realize the implications of Trump administration. In a sharply worded letter, the Nebraska Farm Bureau seems to indicate some buyers remorse:

“It has been very well documented that your historic path to the White House came directly through rural America. While your thoughts on trade where well known by farmers and ranchers, it would be very dangerous to assume it was the focus of their support. Mr. President, please do not turn your back on the farm and ranch families who depend on international markets and who rely on you to make wise decisions that don’t put their economic future in jeopardy.”

The caveat seems to be: “look, we knew you were out there on this stuff, but by and large we didn’t believe you and voted for you for other reasons”; now, it appears those other reasons aren’t quite as important as their livelihood could be harmed in through a trade policy that might sink the family farm.

How important is preventing a trade war to farmers?…”

People Are Fleeing Trump So Fast That He Can’t Plan To Replace Them article from PoliticusUSA. –

Hoards of people are leaving our lackluster lame duck’s presidency faster than he can replace them, in large part because anyone with half a brain wouldn’t be in his orbit to begin with…

Trump Is Depressed, Angry, and Reportedly Losing His Mind article from PoliticusUSA. –

The walls in our dimwitted dip shit’s land of delusion are caving in:

“Multiple White House insiders describe Trump as depressed, angry, and losing his mind.

NBC News reported:

“On Wednesday evening, the president became “unglued,” in the words of one official familiar with the president’s state of mind. A trifecta of events had set him off in a way that two officials said they had not seen before: Hope Hicks’ testimony to lawmakers investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, conduct by his embattled attorney general and the treatment of his son-in-law by his chief of staff. Trump, the two officials said, was angry and gunning for a fight, and he chose a trade war.

The New York Times reported, “Mr. Trump is isolated and angry, as well, according to other friends and aides, as he carries on a bitter feud with his attorney general and watches members of his family clash with a chief of staff he recruited to restore a semblance of order — all against the darkening shadow of an investigation of his ties to Russia.”…”

Trump is systematically destroying the protections from fraudulent financial institutions that screwed over millions of Americans, including the minority that ‘elected’ him.

Trump’s Real Scandal Is Hiding in Plain Sight article from The Atlantic. –

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…”

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:

Today’s misadventures begin with our malevolent minority-elect president* hiding his rationale for committing war crimes in Syria which he illegally bombed when U.S. paid terrorists illegally used chemicals on the Syrian population, Trump’s fraudulent tax reform scam is beginning to make itself known to all, why it’s important to pay more attention to what Trump does than what he says, apparently the big Orange dumb ass in the White House doesn’t know that taking bribes – especially for public officials – is a crime, Trump’s economic team is living in his land of delusion, the irony of a draft-dodging president* calling someone else a coward, again Trump tries to blame his predecessor for issues that he’s responsible for, a few fraudulent businesses are trying desperately to make Trump’s fraudulent tax reform scam look good – though failing miserably, Trump has no intention of doing anything about gun violence because the NRA owns him, the egregious effects of Trump’s deregulation are making themselves known and much more.

Trump Sets Deadly Precedent by Hiding Rationale for Bombing Syria article from Truthout. –

People Are Starting to Realize the GOP Tax Bill Was a Massive Scam article from Alternet. –

It was obvious to anyone paying attention that the Trump / GOP Fraudulent Tax Reform was nothing but a scam from its inception:

“President Donald Trump and the Republicans sold their slapdash effort at tax reform as a boon to the middle class. As the law goes into effect, however, new polling suggests that most Americans are struggling to see any benefit at all in their paychecks.

A survey from Politico and Morning Consult found that only 37 percent of employed people have seen an increase in their paychecks since the law went into effect, while 53 percent of people have not noticed a change.

One big difference between the people who are seeing a pay increase and those who aren’t? Income.

“Our polling shows high-income earners are more likely to have noticed an increase in their paychecks as a result of the tax bill,” said Kyle Dropp, Morning Consult’s co-founder and chief research officer…”

Today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* begin with his commonplace Twitter tirades against his current perceived enemies while trying to deflect blame for his profoundly corrupt failed presidency, Trump likes comparing himself to Abraham Lincoln despite being the complete opposite and a demagogue that Lincoln warned against, Trump is losing control as his corruption and profound stupidity continue imploding his failing lackluster lame duck presidency, the endless parade of lies spewing from Trump’s lips over his Russia scandal are getting ridiculous, barely a year into his already failed presidency and our demented delinquent has already cemented his place as the worst president in America’s history, Trump resorts to new lies to deflect from facing the truth, how to take Trump’s lies and use them against him, Trump’s ‘no foreign deals’ pledge involves his chicanery in foreign deals, Trump wages war on the very workers he promised to protect and fight for, Trump encourages gerrymandering, still trying to destroy healthcare for millions of his supporters so his fraudulent friends can make more money at our expense and a lot more.

Trump Is Tantruming After Getting Owned By Emma Gonzalez For Taking NRA Money article from PoliticusUSA. –

When Trump – who received $30 million from the NRA – gets called out for taking said NRA money, he has to resort again to trying to blame his predecessor and not doing anything about stopping violence at schools perpetrated by his supporters.

Trump thinks he’s Honest Abe, but Lincoln warned us about demagogues like him article from Think Progress. –

In Trump’s land of delusion, he’s greater than Abe Lincoln, but in reality, he’s what Lincoln warned against:

“President Donald Trump loves to compare himself to Abraham Lincoln. Honest Abe would disagree.

Just last month, at a gathering of GOP lawmakers, Trump placed himself on Mount Rushmore again, asserting that Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) “actually once said I’m the greatest president in the history of our country. I said, does that include Lincoln and Washington? He said yes.”

Seriously. Last January, Trump even chose to be sworn in on ?the same bible Honest Abe used because he was “inspired by Lincoln’s words.”

On Presidents’ Day, though, it’s worth remembering Lincoln’s words, which make clear that Trump is the anti-Lincoln (and anti-Washington). He is the demagogue that not only the Founding Fathers like Alexander Hamilton warned us about, but that Lincoln himself warned us about as well…”

Trump’s Furious Tweetstorm Backfires article from The Atlantic. –

Every time Trump tweets to distract from his ceaseless corruption he ends up digging himself a bigger hole and making himself look more guilty – which is a direct result of his profound stupidity…

As usual the White House is trying to make their lying Ignoramus-in-Chief look good, and as usual it’s not working:

“White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, yet again, claimed that most Americans don’t care about the Russia investigation during the daily press briefing on Monday.

When asked if Donald Trump had plans to mention the Russia probe during his first State of the Union address scheduled for Tuesday night, Sanders said:

I think we’ve addressed it every single day that we’ve been here. It’s one of the questions you guys ask over and over and over again. In fact, we spend more time on that than we do any other topic, despite the fact that time and time again, poll after poll says that frankly no one cares about this issue, and it’s certainly not the thing that keeps people up at night. We’d love to talk about all of the things that do, and my guess is that will be the focus of the president’s State of the Union tomorrow.

The White House has been trying to push the narrative that no one outside the media cared about the Russia probe since Trump took office, insisting that the public cares more about “everyday” issues like jobs and taxes…”

Trump And Lawmakers Got Cash From Payday Lenders, Then Weakened Lending Rules article from The International Business Times. –

After profiting and pushing more deregulation while appointing corrupt cronies to destroy sections of the government they’re in charge of, Trump and his GOP brown shirts destroyed the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau which was put in place to protect consumers after the massive fraud that caused the crash in 2008:

“Less than two months after President Donald Trump tapped his budget director to run the independent federal agency tasked with protecting U.S. consumers from harmful and predatory financial practices, the agency has moved to undo a rule intended to prevent payday lenders from preying on low-income Americans. The reversal — which follows recent congressional proposals with the same objective — is a major win for the $40 billion payday lending industry, which has recently started delivering big money to Trump and to congressional critics of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

The payday lending and title loan industry has been battling the CFPB since Congress created the bureau in 2010 — and the fight has intensified since the bureau started crafting rules to regulate short-term lending in 2015. Since then, payday lenders have given $1.5 million to congressional lawmakers and another $300,000 to the Republican National Committee and the National Republican Congressional Committee. The industry also spent another $6.2 million on politics at the state level to combat regulation over the same time period, according to the National Institute on Money in State Politics. (A patchwork system of state-based laws currently governs the industry; a handful of states ban payday loans entirely.)

The industry’s shrewdest investment may have been the money it delivered to Trump after he won the 2016 election. While payday lenders weren’t lining up to support Trump during the presidential election, in January after Trump’s win, Advance America, the nation’s biggest payday lender, donated $250,000 to Trump’s inauguration. Title loan magnate Rod Aycox and his wife each donated $500,000 for the event; payday lender Checks into Cash chipped in another $25,000. In November, the Community Financial Services Association of America, the industry’s trade group, announced its annual conference and expo would be held at the Trump National Doral resort in Miami.

As that money flowed to Trump and his business empire, the Trump administration has made moves to help the industry — in particular, it took decisive action to undermine the CFPB’s previous efforts to regulate lenders…”
