Misadventures of a minority-elect President 178

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 illegitimate, popular vote losing president begin with a few of the things that our national embarrassment falsely claims he invented, while claiming to be highly intelligent our moronic lame duck president continues revealing the endless depths of his profound ignorance, our fake, Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator still trying to spread his war on fake news by threatening NBC for publishing the truth about his ignorance, more leaks from the White House about our impotent leader’s escalating meltdowns while blaming everyone else for his actions and words, failing to pass his fraudulent health care bill hasn’t stopped Trump from trying to destroy Obamacare – this time by another most likely illegal executive order, our Warmonger-in-Chief has killed more civilians with illegal air strikes in almost 10 months than his predecessor did in 8 years, our demented deviant in the White House committed yet another impeachable offense by trying to abridge freedoms of speech, the implosion of our illegitimate president and his dubious cabal is gaining speed and a lot more.

The fact that Trump’s staff has to employ delays and distractions to keep him from going off doesn’t bode well for America.

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…”

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 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’S VOTER-FRAUD COMMISSION HEADS TO NEW HAMPSHIRE article from The New Yorker. –
https://www.newyorker.com/news/daily-comment/trumps-voter-fraud-commission-heads-to-new-hampshire

Where they will try and support our Liar-in-Chief’s claims that he won the popular vote and make it easier for the GOP to win elections by suppressing everyone else:

“Last week, much of official Washington rejoiced after President Trump made a deal with senior congressional Democrats to forestall a government shutdown, provide aid to hurricane victims, and raise the debt ceiling until December. The deal, some observers claimed, marked Trump’s long-awaited pivot to conventional Presidential leadership and a bipartisan style of governing. Some praised this maneuver as statesmanlike, while others denounced it as a betrayal of the President’s fellow-Republicans, but there was something close to consensus that Trump had jettisoned the hard-right politics expressed at the beginning of his term in office and begun a new and different chapter.

This is, to put it charitably, nonsense. Nancy Pelosi and Charles Schumer, the top Democrats in Congress, understandably accepted a modest political gift from the President; Trump, by agreeing to just a three-month extension of the deadlines, gave the opposition party somewhat more leverage when the next negotiation takes place, before the end of the year. But, notwithstanding the developments of last week, which mostly amount to inside baseball, the course of the Trump Presidency is set, and conservatives are still very much in charge.

A vivid example of the right-wing hegemony in the Trump Administration will be on display today, when the Presidential Advisory Commission on Voter Integrity convenes for the second time. It is difficult to imagine a more cynical enterprise than this commission, which Trump appointed after he claimed (falsely) that the casting of illegal votes last November accounted for his loss of the popular vote, which Hillary Clinton won by a margin of nearly three million. Trump named Kris Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state, who has been the nation’s leading advocate for restrictions on voting rights, as the vice-chair of the commission. (Vice-President Mike Pence is the chair.) Kobach will preside at today’s meeting, which will convene in Manchester, New Hampshire. (To further confuse matters, the meeting will be hosted by New Hampshire’s longtime secretary of state, Bill Gardner, a Democrat who also sits on the commission but who has, in the past, been skeptical of voter-fraud charges.) The choice of this location is characteristic of the incompetence and malevolence that is at the heart of the vote-suppression agenda.

Hillary Clinton and Senator Maggie Hassan—who defeated the Republican incumbent, Kelly Ayotte—both won narrow victories in New Hampshire, in 2016. Kobach has claimed that those results are suspect because out-of-state voters may have cast ballots for the Democrats. Last Wednesday, the speaker of the New Hampshire House of Representatives, Shawn Jasper, a Republican, released data showing that six thousand five hundred and forty people had registered to vote using out-of-state driver’s licenses. Using such licenses for voter registration is legal in the state, but it was pointed out that only a thousand and fourteen of these people later obtained a New Hampshire license. This, Kobach suggested in a column that he wrote last week for Breitbart, means that most of those voters never lived in New Hampshire at all…”

It’s truly sad how ignorant Trump’s minions are:

“A portion of our country also managed to fall deeply in love with Donald Trump — a “reality” TV star who maintains an even more tenuous relationship with reality than did his hero, the much more lovable Ronald Reagan. Trump and Reagan have opposite temperaments — Reagan eternally sunny, Trump ever dark, but both sell similar societal delusions. Trump manages to be truculently wrong on every existential question facing humanity — denying global warming, encouraging pollution, promoting resource depletion, enjoying saber rattling, opposing population and gun control, escalating obscene inequality, and trampling on civil rights protections. He has the demeanor of a circus barker, the integrity of a con man, the temperament of a neighborhood bully, the breathtaking ignorance of an arrogant know-nothing, the political instincts of a führer, and the policies of a tribal nationalist.

All the problems that are inherent in American exceptionalism are now very badly compounded by Trump exceptionalism. Trump doesn’t qualify for a mental disorder, but he does present with one of the world’s best-documented cases of lifelong failure to mature. He is a boy/man who expects everything to go his way and experiences the world as an extension of himself. Other people exist only to do his imperious bidding, admire his great deeds, and gratify his enormous wants. This is perfectly age-appropriate behavior in a young child, but is perfectly inappropriate in a president. Trump fancies himself the nation’s Big Brother, but he is really our neediest Big Baby. Trump is bad, not mad, but we the people are mad for having elected such a terribly flawed person to the most powerful position in the world. His heady rise was surprisingly undeterred by his consistent pattern of boldfaced lying; constant flip-flopping; irresponsible incitement to violence; and self-congratulatory bigotry, racism, and sexism. Blustering, bullying, and bravado play well on reality TV but can be disastrous in real life when you are running a country. No one less qualified to be president has ever won the office. No one so dangerous to our democracy has ever been given its most powerful position.

Trump is an unlikely messenger bearing an unwelcome message about the sanity of our body politic. He has revealed and unleashed a deeper streak of delusional denial in a larger segment of U.S. society than even I would have thought possible. Thomas More’s hope for a utopian America has decayed into a Trumpian dystopia. Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again” (stolen, appropriately enough, from Ronald Reagan) disguises policies that in fact make America small, fearful, angry, petty, and vicious. Karl Marx once quipped, “History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.” The Trump phenomenon marks what I dearly hope will be a bottom in both American tragedy and farce…”

Misadventures of a minority-elect President 159

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 popular vote losing president begins with an explanation of how easy it would be for our demented delinquent to start a nuclear war – as it would be difficult to stop him with no checks in place, America’s most corrupt president is still setting all the wrong precedents, America’s worst-ever president continues talking trash to North Korea while the miscreants in his White House urge the world not to pay attention to it, our national embarrassment loves to bluff but he’s too stupid to think before he speaks, our demented delusionist in the White House is proving to be a major embarrassment to the U.S., Trump’s partisan presidency – catering only to the minority that ‘elected’ him and not the majority and a lot more.

5 Disturbing Revelations Upon Closer Inspection of Trump’s Twitter Feed article from AlterNet. –
http://www.alternet.org/donald-trump-twitter-bots

In addition to all his other moronic rants, out Twitter tyrant also quotes white supremacists and bots:

“President Donald Trump tweets … a lot. But along with his usual flurry of tweets attacking the media, lamenting fake news, or criticizing practically anyone who disagrees with him, Trump has another Twitter habit — quoting his supposed supporters’ tweets. A look at over a year of Trump’s retweets, quote tweets, and tweets in which he quoted another Twitter handle has left a lot of questions.

Using the Trump Twitter Archive, Media Matters audited the president’s Twitter handle, @RealDonaldTrump, between April 1, 2016, and July 31, 2017, focusing on retweets, quote tweets, and tweets where @RealDonaldTrump quoted another Twitter handle. We used that list to identify unverified accounts that he quoted or retweeted, which we then checked for the original tweet and suspicious or bot-like activity. If an account seemed suspicious (for example, it posted an unrealistic number of tweets or exclusively pro-Trump messages), we examined its tweeting habits during the weekend of the second presidential debate (October 6 to 10, 2016). Finally, if an account seemed like a bot, we reviewed its tweeting habits between August 2015 and January 2016.

Factors used to identify suspicious behavior included the date the handle was created; the number of tweets sent; the general frequency of tweets and use of hashtags and images; the content and frequency of tweets the weekend of the second debate; and what the account tweeted before the October 2015 primary season. Here’s what we found:

1. Trump retweeted and thanked a woman named Nicole Mincey over the weekend of August 5, 2017, as was widely reported by numerous outlets. Mincey was suspected to be a bot, but was later identified by BuzzFeed and others as a real Trump supporter who was using her page to sell merchandise. It was odd for Trump to simply retweet an unknown account because, based on Media Matters’ findings, Trump typically retweets only verified accounts, such as Fox & Friends’ Twitter account or those of his staffers and family members…”

Misadventures of a minority-elect President 158

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 popular vote losing president with our Twitter tyrant having yet another one of his famous meltdowns – this time over his lousy poll and more fake news (which is only fake when it reflects on him poorly), our fake president falsely cries about fake news while starting his own fake news network, the depths of Trump’s corruption include censoring information to suit his duplicitous political agendas and having corrupt cronies dictating U.S. foreign policy – both of which are potentially unlawful, supporters and the majority of the U.S. public aren’t the only ones turning against our demented delinquent, twice a day Trump’s staff reportedly prepares a ‘propaganda document’ full of his great accomplishments – headlines, tweets and hosts of other complimentary propaganda – to keep their delusional wannabe dictator happy, having a warmongering psychopath that wants to be a dictator in charge could prove costly to America, how America got to the place where a profoundly corrupt moron ended up in the White House and much more.

Fake News? Trump Launches ‘Real News’ Series article from NBC News. –
http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/white-house/fake-news-trump-launches-real-news-series-n790241

The irony of a fake president claiming fake news while starting his own fake news network:

“WASHINGTON — If you don’t like what they’re saying, change the conversation. Or, in the case of President Donald Trump’s campaign, produce your own news series.

In the fight against what Trump has decried as “fake news” about him and his administration, his team has launched their own version of events: Taking the president’s frequent laments about a lack of media focus on jobs, the stock market and the economy and turning it into a weekly video posted to Facebook focusing on just that.

“More great economic news on Friday,” former pro-Trump cable news commentator Kayleigh McEnany says, seated in front of a blue Trump-Pence themed wall to give “the real news.”

McEnany rose to political prominence during the 2016 election for her fiery exchanges in defense of Trump on CNN. She left the network this weekend, a source with knowledge of the situation told NBC News, asking to leave in order to pursue another opportunity…”
