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 gleefully unaware of the national embarrassment that he is, more on Trump’s minions realizing they’ve been conned, paranoia playing a major role in Trump’s land of delusion as he flails to deflect attention from his Russia scandal, Trump pulls out of the Paris Climate agreement – with fact-free speech, the threat posed to the U.S. by Trump-loving, racist far-right terrorists, fueling his Russia scandal with yet more ignorance and more.

Opinion: If Trump Wanted ‘Fast and Easy,’ He’s in the Wrong Job article from Roll Call. –
It’s easier to hide your malfeasance in the private sector than it is as a minority-elect President:
“In all of the hundreds, if not thousands, of volumes written about the United States Senate, I’d be willing to bet that “fast and easy” has never been used to describe the chamber or what it should be — until Tuesday, when President Donald Trump tweeted that the Senate should “switch to 51 votes immediately, and get Healthcare and TAX CUTS approved, fast and easy….”
Putting aside the fact that Democrats never did abandon the legislative filibuster, it’s hard to think of a term that applies less to the Senate and the role it is designed to play than “fast and easy,” especially because the Founding Fathers created the Senate for the sole purpose of making sure that writing the laws for a large, diverse country would be the exact opposite of “fast and easy.”
Not a monarchy
Unlike monarchies, where the whims of kings dictated a country’s course, or pure democracies, which the Founders worried would be subject to the passions of mobs and politics, James Madison explained that the Senate’s role was “first to protect the people against their rulers [and] secondly to protect the people against the transient impressions into which they themselves might be led.” Fast and easy was never part of the plan for the Senate.
And it’s never been a part of the credo of the United States. Nowhere in the Gettysburg Address did Abraham Lincoln include “fast and easy” in his call to protect the fundamental notion that all men are created equal…”
