The many ways our illegitimate, minority-elect president is dismantling the U.S. after six months in office begins today’s misadventures, his fraudulent ‘voter integrity’ commission dubiously tries to justify our popular vote losing liar’s claims that he won the popular vote, Trump and his team’s actions meet the definition of betrayal of country – which is treason, Trump’s ‘accomplishments’ during his first illicit 6 months after being ‘elected,’ Trump’s endless corruption and ignorance is coming back to bite him, our Liar-in-Chief’s Ministry of Propaganda is shifting the lies into overdrive and much more.

The Making of the Tabloid Presidency article from The New York Book Review. –
http://www.nybooks.com/articles/2017/08/17/steve-bannon-donald-trump-tabloid-presidency/

Understanding Trumpism and how it came about:

“Six months into Donald Trump’s presidency, the bond between him and his base remains strong, largely unaffected for now by the mounting scandals, talk of impeachment, and Trump’s stalled agenda. There have been five special elections to fill vacant House seats—in Georgia, Montana, Kansas, California, and South Carolina—and the Republicans have won four of them. In Georgia, the most closely watched race, the Democrats poured in $30 million for their candidate. But the Republicans nearly matched that figure, and their narrow victory in June was perceived as a win for Trump—and Trumpism, however ill-defined it may be.

Joshua Green’s new book, Devil’s Bargain, argues that Trumpism is best understood through his partnership with Stephen K. Bannon, now the president’s chief political strategist. Green, formerly a correspondent at The Atlantic and now at Bloomberg Businessweek, has been writing about conservatives since the George W. Bush years. It is a testament to his adroit intertwining of Bannon’s story with Trump’s that we’re not certain which of the two figures has sold the bigger part of himself to the other. In the broader sense, they are coauthors of our moment’s tabloid conservatism.

Trump has had many biographers, but it was Green who did the first in-depth reporting on Bannon, in a long Bloomberg profile in October 2015, ten months before Bannon formally joined the Trump campaign and rescued it from what looked like certain defeat. Previously, Bannon had been an informal adviser while making Breitbart News, the website he had run since 2012, Trump’s main propaganda auxiliary, surpassing Fox News, which had been divided over Trump and roiled by a sexual harassment scandal involving the network’s late founder and CEO, Roger Ailes. Green describes a conversation in which Ailes, still clinging to his job, tells Bannon he can survive. He just has to plead his case directly to Rupert Murdoch, who is away on his boat and can’t be reached. Bannon sees the obvious, telling Ailes, “If somebody called him about a merger, he’d take the fucking call…. You’re done.” A patois of coarseness is heard everywhere in this book, but especially from its two principals. Bannon was able to manage Trump the candidate when other, more seasoned operatives could not because Bannon is Trump’s unlikely spiritual twin, his bookish doppelgänger, unkempt in cargo shorts…”

After complaining about being caught in all his lies, our national embarrassment lies again:

“President Donald Trump said Monday that he doesn’t like “Pinocchios,” referring to the Washington Post’s metric for pointing out politicians’ lies in fact-checking columns. Minutes later, he delivered a whopper of an untruth.

“We’ve signed more bills — and I’m talking about through the legislature — than any President ever,” Trump said at an event the White House called the “Made in America product showcase.” “For a while Harry Truman had us, and now I think we have everybody, Mike. I better say ‘think,’ otherwise they’ll give me a Pinocchio, and I don’t like Pinocchios.”

Glenn Kessler, the Washington Post’s Fact Checker columnist, implied there was an easy fix for Trump’s aversion to fact-checkers (tell the truth).

Yet, several minutes later, Trump cited a number close to one that was repeatedly knocked down by multiple fact checks, including from the Washington Post…”

Apparently trying to collude with Russia wasn’t enough for our dimwitted dip shit’s son:

“If you’ve donated to President Donald Trump’s campaign to re-elect, there’s a chance those funds have been used to pay for the first family’s legal defense team. Federal Election Commission records show that the president’s re-election campaign made a $50,000 payment last month to the attorney representing Donald Trump Jr., Reuters reported Saturday.

The payment came almost two weeks before Trump Jr. revealed that he met with a Russian lawyer in order to discuss damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

The payment, dated June 27, was made to the Law Offices of Alan Futerfas, according to Reuters, and was disclosed in the most recent filing with the Federal Election Commission. “Legal consulting” was the purported reasoning for the payment.

Futerfas was announced as Trump Jr.’s lawyer earlier this week after The New York Times first reported the shady encounter between Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. Four other individuals reportedly attended the meeting…”

INSIDE TRUMP’S WEST WING: FEAR, RECRIMINATIONS, AND NO MORE ‘CONSPIRACY BULLSHIT’ article from Vanity Fair. –
http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/07/inside-trumps-west-wing-trump-jr-russia

Our national embarrassment’s growing scandals are making life hell in the White House:

“Returning from Europe last weekend, White House aides had hoped to spin Donald Trump’s divisive meeting with President Vladimir Putin as a turning point for an administration whose agenda has been overshadowed by allegations of campaign collusion with Russia. “Let’s talk about how to move forward,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had told the press on Friday, explaining that Trump had raised the issue of Russian election interference but was prepared to move on as partners in the war on terror and, improbably, on cybersecurity. “The question is what do we do now?” Instead, as the U.S. delegation flew back to Washington on Saturday, Trump’s inner circle reportedly found themselves huddled in the back of Air Force One, where they crafted a statement for Donald Trump Jr. to give The New York Times, explaining why he had met with Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya last June. According to people with knowledge of the discussion, the airborne group debated as to how transparent the statement should be, according to the Times’ Maggie Haberman and Peter Baker.

Not very, as it turned out.

The president signed off on a sparse statement that claimed the meeting was primarily focused on the issue of U.S.-Russian adoption—an explanation that quickly fell behind a fast-evolving story, as the Times followed up with a series of reports revealing that not only did Trump Jr. know that the point of the meeting was to obtain damaging information about Hillary Clinton, but that the promised dirt was said to come explicitly from the Russian government. Seeking to get ahead of the story, the president’s son on Tuesday released four pages of communications with Rob Goldstone, the intermediary who brokered the meeting with Veselnitskaya. In the e-mails, Goldstone says that the lawyer has negative information about Clinton that is part of the Russian government’s efforts to bolster Trump’s campaign. Trump Jr. responded with unfortunate enthusiasm: “I love it.”

Blindsided staffers are reportedly in panic mode after the latest revelation, which appears to substantiate some of the worst fears about the Trump campaign’s unsavory relationship with Russia. Many people within the White House had dismissed the Trump-Russia affair as “conspiracy bullshit,” one Trump adviser told Politico. Now, aides are “essentially helpless” to contain the fallout from a story that has its origins in the heady “anything goes” days of the campaign. Members of Trump’s inner circle are reportedly filled with paranoia and suspicion over the identities of the “three advisers to the White House” who were the sources for the blockbuster Times story…”

Trump Gives His Twitter Version Of Putin Meeting article from Yahoo! News. –
https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-gives-twitter-version-putin-152401666.html

Our national embarrassment’s second foreign trip was a rousing success and life is good in Trump’s land of delusion:

“Sunday mornings are one of President Donald Trump’s favorite times to tweet, and this week he decided he wanted to clarify what happened at the G20 summit, and give his version of events of his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The G20 summit is a forum where economic leaders and heads of state of the world’s top economies meet to discuss world issues. This year the summit took place in Hamburg, Germany. On Friday during the summit Trump met with Putin in a meeting closed to the press, the only other people in attendance were Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and two translators.

When the meeting was over, there were two competing narratives of what took place, especially when it came to discussions of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

“They had a very robust and lengthy exchange on the subject,” said Tillerson in an off-camera briefing, according to CNN Friday. “The President pressed President Putin on more than one occasion regarding Russian involvement. President Putin denied such involvement, as I think he has in the past.”…”

White House Confuses Taiwan And Chine In Painful G20 Press Release Blunder article from Talking Points Memo. –

Revealing yet again that our Ignoramus-in-Chief is anything but presidential:

“Just before leaving the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany on Saturday, President Donald Trump held a bilateral meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping. Following that high-level talk, the White House blasted out a transcript of Trump’s public remarks preceding the meeting, a document that called Xi “President Xi of the Republic of China.”

One problem: the “Republic of China” refers to Taiwan. China is referred to as the “People’s Republic of China.”

This is not the first time that Trump has blundered into the extremely sensitive question of Taiwan’s sovereignty.

Before he was even sworn into office, Trump angered China by taking a phone call from Taiwan’s president, something a U.S. leader has not done in decades. Though Trump defended the call at the time, he later told Xi he would honor the “one China” policy and not recognize Taiwan’s status as a sovereign nation…”

The president of the Red States of America article from The Week. –
http://theweek.com/articles/710025/president-red-states-america

Trump won’t visit the states that didn’t vote for him – for obvious reasons:

“President Trump seems to believe he is president only of something called the Red States of America.

Since taking office, Trump has conducted campaign-like rallies in Iowa, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Florida. He carried all four states in 2016, and while Iowa, Pennsylvania, and Florida are all legitimate swing states, not one could be honestly described as blue. In fact, the only reasons Trump has even set foot in truly blue states since his inauguration was for military ceremonies in Virginia, Connecticut, and Maryland, to visit his New Jersey golf resort, to give a graduation speech at hard-right Liberty University in Virginia, and to meet with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull at a New York City military museum.

The idea of addressing or appealing to the wide swath of people who live in these blue states seems never to have occurred to our president. They are just golfover states to him.

There’s another striking thing about President Trump’s treks in office in comparison to the early days of Obama — he is not acting like the situation facing the country is nearly as serious as he says it is, and he is not doing much to press the agenda he and his allies claim is critical to a national turnaround. By July 2009, the indefatigable Obama had held multiple town hall meetings about health-care reform and given major addresses about his administration’s policy proposals, including on credit card reform and the stimulus bill. Whatever you think of his policies, it’s undeniable that Obama had a podcast wonk’s command of the details and obviously took them seriously. Trump has not done a single town hall. He has addressed audiences that are almost exclusively friendly by design, including the Conservative Political Action Conference and the National Rifle Association. His public remarks and tweets betray a policy knowledge wormhole large enough to steer the Starship Enterprise through…”

https://www.dailykos.com/story/2017/7/3/1677628/-Donald-Trump-has-a-Tell

How to tell when Trump actually believes the bull shit he’s about to spew and when he outright lies:

“The Donald has a “Tell” — something that should clue in the casual observer, that what he is about to say is probably true (ie. what he really thinks or believes). Without this “unconscious verbal cue” — the veracity (or dishonestly) of what the guy says, is a crap-shoot at best.

The give-away was made plain in the Lester Holt interview: Donald Trump prefaced his great “reveal” with these 4 words, as he commenced with explaining his “inner feelings” to Holt. Those 4 words were:

“I said to myself …”

When Trump says those words, pay attention to what follows, because there is no one he wants to impress more — than himself…”

Donald Trump is kicking off his second foreign tour as President today – he better prepare himself for the reception article from The Independent. –
http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/donald-trump-poland-europe-foreign-tour-policy-beata-szydlo-putin-g20-popularity-low-a7824336.html

Hoping Trump’s second foreign trip goes better than his first one:

“Donald Trump begins his second foreign foray as US President today with a stop-off in Poland before heading to the G20 summit in Germany on Friday. Trump’s trip comes at a time of troubles for him, internationally, with publics in many countries already having less confidence in him than George W Bush at the height of his own travails as president.

Given Trump’s unpopularity is particularly marked in Western Europe, it is no coincidence that he has decided to make a Polish stop-off where Washington recently deployed hundreds of troops. The country’s government, run by the conservative, Eurosceptic Law and Justice Party, has been much more welcoming of Trump than many other EU counterparts, and the country is one of only four NATO members other than the United States that spends the 2 per cent target of GDP on defence.

Examples of the Polish administration’s affinity with Trump include its opposition to immigration, support for burning coal, and scepticism of multilateral institutions. Right now, for instance, Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo finds herself in heated battles with the EU over her administration’s refusal to resettle refugees and migrants, and opposition to judicial changes that Brussels says will weaken the rule of law.

Recalling former US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld’s controversial division between so-called “Old Europe” in the west of the continent and “New Europe” in the east, Trump will also attend the Three Seas initiative. This is a conference in Wroclaw for leaders from 12 Central European, Baltic and Western Balkan states…”

Misadventures of a minority-elect President 137

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 contempt for American democracy and the government institutions that keep it honest begin today’s misadventures of our minority-elect Loser-in-Chief, 44 States – so far – refuse to hand over voter data to Trump’s fraudulent ‘voter integrity commission’ for obvious reasons, despite the ‘fake news’ claims from our fake president, more Americans trust CNN than Trump, our national embarrassment’s misuse of plausible deniability – there’s a major difference between it and being profoundly stupid, America’s worst-ever president’s phony patriotism charades awed his supporters while making him look foolish to the majority, how Trump is the greatest threat facing America and more.

The biggest threat to American democracy isn’t Trump’s uncivil speech article from The Guardian. –

The biggest threat against American democracy is the contempt our Loser-in-Chief directs against it and the institutions that keep government honest.

Poll: More Americans trust CNN than Trump article from The Hill. –
http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/340601-poll-more-americans-trust-cnn-than-trust-trump

All the bogus cries of ‘fake news’ by our fake president are for naught – unless you’re in the minority that ‘elected’ him:

“A new online poll finds that Americans trust CNN, The Washington Post and The New York Times more than President Trump, Axios reported Tuesday.

But amid Trump’s ongoing war against the press, trust is largely split among partisan lines, with 89 percent of Republicans viewing Trump as more trustworthy than CNN while 91 percent of Democrats think the opposite.

Among all adults, trust for CNN is 7 points ahead of Trump; among independents, CNN wins by 15 points.

Trump on Sunday tweeted a doctored video of a wrestling match between himself and CNN, escalating an ongoing war of rhetoric between the president and the cable news outlet, which he has repeatedly dismissed as “fake news.”…”
