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 malignant minority-elect president* with the price he’s going to pay for not taking care of his former attorney who knows all about his fraudulent business dealings, his affairs, his numerous ties to Russia and more, yet more proof that our national embarrassment’s ‘America First’ rhetoric is nothing but another con job, Trump and his GOP brown shirt enablers are preparing yet another fraudulent tax scam in order to try and eviscerate Medicare and Social Security, why it’s time to hold our delusional Orange dumb ass and his GOP enablers accountable for their multiple Treasonous crimes against the U.S., our dystopian dotard once again threatened to shut down the government if he doesn’t receive more money for his border wall and so much more.

THE HELSINKI SUMMIT AND THE AWKWARD ART OF CLEANING UP TRUMP’S MESSES article from The New Yorker. –

Watching the utter incompetence of having to constantly clean up and try to dissuade the outcomes of our national embarrassment’s multiple weekly fuck-ups reveals just how degraded this country has become and that you can’t rely on or believe Washington in any fashion.

America first? Photos emerge of Trump-Pence 2020 campaign flags being made in China article from The Daily Kos. –
https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2018/7/26/1783629/-America-first-Photos-emerge-of-Trump-Pence-2020-campaign-flags-being-made-in-China

Trump’s entire illegitimate presidency is all about him first and screw everyone else, in this case over his ‘America First’ Con job:

“In classic con man fashion, the candidate and president who has sworn to bring manufacturing back to the United States isn’t making any attempt to start with his own campaign. In fact, as evidenced by these photos, the Trump campaign is actively getting their gear made in China. From the Associated Press description of the photo above:

A Chinese worker sews flags and banners for the U.S. President Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential re-election campaign to be exported to the United States of America at a factory in Fuyang city, east China’s Anhui province, 13 July 2018. The red, white and blue banners for U.S. President Donald Trump’s second-term campaign are ready to ship, emblazoned with the words “Keep America Great!” But they are made in eastern China and soon could be hit by punitive tariffs of Trump’s own making as he ratchets up a rancorous trade dispute with Beijing. At the Jiahao Flag Co Ltd in Anhui province, women operate sewing machines to hem the edges of “Trump 2020” flags the size of beach towels, while others fold and bundle them for delivery.

In another image, it appears they are also making U.S. flags, which can be seen stacked on the floor.

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:

Wagging the dog begins today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* as he creates all kinds of distractions to desperately deflect from his illegitimate, failed criminal presidency, our demented delinquent appears to have lost all touch with reality, concocting another conspiracy theory – this time about his Russian puppet master wanting Democrats to win – to distract from his corruption driven implosion is making our impotent imbecile look spectacularly foolish, the hits just keep coming as more tapes keep being leaked which seem to prove his guilt and there’s not a damn thing he can do about it, Trump’s Russia scandal is about to get a lot more interesting as his former lawyer flips on him and much more.

Having our deranged Twitter tyrant threatening war with Iran – and creating all kinds of other falsehoods – highlights exactly why he isn’t fit for the office of the president and why he is and always will be illegitimate as his delusional tweets become his standard operating procedure.

Trump Just Attacked the Very Idea of Objective Reality: ‘What You’re Seeing and What You’re Reading Is Not What’s Happening’ article from Alternet. –
https://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/trump-just-attacked-very-idea-objective-reality-what-youre-seeing-and-what-youre

Our demented delinquent has lost all touch with reality and that issue needs to be addressed asap:

“Since President Donald Trump’s legacy in office is filled with broken promises and dismal failures, he and his defenders are working to create an alternative reality for his supporters to believe in where administration policy is a resounding success.

Trump made this strategy explicit Tuesday (as Kellyanne Conway once did when she coined the phrase “alternative facts”) in his speech at the VFW in Kansas City.

“This country is doing better than it ever has before, economically,” Trump said, touting his plan to slap tariffs on foreign goods.

He added: “It’s all working out. Just remember: what you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening.”…”

Pleased Dictators Trump from Pinterest

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 malignant minority-elect president* begin with his committing yet another potential act of Treason by demanding no written historical record of his ‘summit’ with his Russian Master – in large part so he can lie his ass off about this farcical summit too, trying to stack the ‘Supreme’ Court with corrupt justices in his image to help him avoid accountability for his high crimes and misdemeanors probably won’t help Trump that much, questioning our Mango Mussolini’s definition of draining the swamp as it has grown exponentially since he was ‘elected’, pondering the point of a Trump rally in 2018, Trump’s hypocritical duplicity on immigration and sexual deviancy are astounding and so much more.

The Clown Who Plays King article from Crooks and Liars. –
https://crooksandliars.com/2018/07/clown-who-plays-king

The New York Daily News has a new cover worth checking out that shows our marmalade miscreant dressed like a clown wearing a crown – which captures Herr Frump’s incompetence completely:

“One imagines that outrage factories like Breitbart, The Washington Examiner, The Daily Caller, Fox News, etc wouldn’t be upset with this image so much, as they would with the idea that Trump and other collaborators with him are trying to overthrow American values.

Nor would they find the Daily News editorial at all to their liking, with passages such as this:

Enter the current occupant of the White House, who devotes this nation’s potent energies to barricading the borders, to separating refuge-seeking mothers from children, to ordering parents to leave the country with or without their kids now that a court has ordered their reunion.

Among them weep parents who assured their children before parting that they would see them soon, wherever they were going, in vain attempt to cushion the void…”

DONALD TRUMP’S KIM JONG UN MEETING ACHIEVED NOTHING AND NORTH KOREA ISN’T DESTROYING WEAPONS SITES, CLASSIFIED REPORT REVEALS article from Newsweek. –
http://www.newsweek.com/donald-trumps-singapore-summit-achieved-nothing-north-korea-not-destroying-978097

Yet more proof that our tinpot dictator wrapped in a flag’s ‘historic summit’ with North Korea was pure political fodder and all the accomplishments he keeps trying to brag about are lies:

“The agreement signed Tuesday between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un left many open questions about how the two countries will pursue denuclearization, according to a classified Israeli government report.

The Israeli foreign ministry report also says that the Trump administration backtracked on many of the demands it had said it would make in the run-up to the meeting with Kim, according to some of the classified document’s highlights published by Axios.

“Regardless of the smiles in the summit many in Japan, South Korea and the U.S. Congress doubt that North Korea is sincere in its intentions. Our assessment is that regardless of President Trump’s statements about quick changes that are expected in North Korean policy, the road to real and substantive change, if it ever happens, will be long and slow,” the report indicated.

The report also noted that Trump’s decision to halt joint military exercises between the U.S. and South Korea while denuclearization, a proposal known as “freeze to freeze,” was a significant reversal of Washington’s previous position. China had proposed this option last year and was completely rebuffed by the Trump administration…”

A Guide To Trumpspeak from Pinterest

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 his giving his critics more ammunition to compare him to a tinpot dictator wrapping himself in the flag while ignorantly claiming faux patriotism that only resulted in making him look extremely foolish, putting his faith in conspiracy theories and propaganda really shows the true depths of his ignorance – which explains all the delusions over the investigations that are going to take him down, how our Twitter tyrant’s tirades, conspiracy theories and other distractions routinely fool his moronic minions that are still stupid enough to support him, Trump revealed that he knows absolutely nothing about history – except for the part about stealing from the public while enriching himself and his fraudulent friends as he keeps trying to take the country back to the Gilded Age while emulating Nazi Germany, Trump is desperately trying to make his despotic delusions of grandeur become a reality but, like everything else he does, will fail miserably and much more.

Trump’s ‘celebration of America’ in lieu of cancelled Eagles gala fails to shine article from The Guardian. –

Trump Is Pursuing a National Anthem-Kneeling Feud With a Team Whose Players Didn’t Kneel During the National Anthem article from Slate. –
https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2018/06/philadelphia-eagles-didnt-kneel-during-anthem-contra-trump-statement.html

Yet more evidence that our demented delinquent’s bogus patriotism used to try and disguise his flagrant racism is gaining attention for all the wrong reasons:

“President A Big Baby announced abruptly on Monday night that he’d disinvited the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles from a planned Tuesday White House celebration on the grounds that they “disagree with their president because he insists that they proudly stand for their National Anthem, hand on heart.”

The casual reader might assume from such language that some members of the Eagles team that won the title had, like other NFL players, knelt during the playing of the national anthem last season to protest police brutality. But it turns out this is not the case: In fact, as a February article in the conservative Washington Times noted, the Eagles were one of only seven NFL teams that didn’t have any players kneel during the anthem over the course of the 2017–18 schedule. One image of a kneeling Eagles player that’s circulated online since Trump made his announcement is of a cornerback who wasn’t on the team last year; Fox News’ report on the issue featured photos of kneeling Eagles that turned out to have been taken while they were praying, not while the anthem was playing. (Some black Eagles players did raise their fists during the anthem last year as a gesture of solidarity, but they remained standing while doing so.)

A more likely explanation for the cancellation is that Trump learned that almost no one was going to show up. (Several Eagles players have been critical of Trump in the past, and other athletes have skipped White House appearances for nonpolitical reasons.) This is from a well-connected ESPN reporter:

Nixon said the same thing and he too was wrong and if Trump did try to dubiously pardon himself he would most likely be removed from office:

“President Trump started off his Monday morning in style, tweeting that he has the “absolute right” to pardon himself for any crime.

You know he is serious because the word pardon is in all caps. But is he right?

On August 5, 1974, Mary Lawton, the Acting Assistant Attorney General, examined the question of whether the president can pardon himself. The president at the time was Richard Nixon…”

The deafening message of Trump’s Dinesh D’Souza pardon article from The Week. –
http://theweek.com/articles/776229/deafening-message-trumps-dinesh-dsouza-pardon

Once again our dysfunctional dumb ass abused his pardon power to let egregious pieces of shit – such as himself – off the hook due to his delusional fantasies:

“President Trump announced Thursday that he would pardon Dinesh D’Souza, the loopy conservative operative who pleaded guilty to violating campaign finance law:

It is a spectacular abuse of the pardon power and a barely-veiled announcement that Trump will use that power to protect odious conservative criminals and undermine the Mueller investigation.

D’Souza is best known today for being too weird for polite company and incredibly racist — though his arguments and positions also have a strange tendency to flip around all over the place. As Alex Nichols writes, he got his start in politics with a deeply racist newspaper at Dartmouth, and then with moldy-oldie arguments about how slaves in the antebellum South were treated “pretty well.” He got wide notoriety with one racist tirade after another against President Obama and blacks in general, leavened with stomach-churning fabrications about Obama’s mother…”

Meet the Hundreds of Crony Officials Trump Has Quietly Installed Across the Government article from ProPublica. –
https://www.propublica.org/article/meet-hundreds-of-officials-trump-has-quietly-installed-across-government

“A Trump campaign aide who argues that Democrats committed “ethnic cleansing” in a plot to “liquidate” the white working class. A former reality show contestant whose study of societal collapse inspired him to invent a bow-and-arrow-cum-survivalist multi-tool. A pair of healthcare industry lobbyists. A lobbyist for defense contractors. An “evangelist” and lobbyist for Palantir, the Silicon Valley company with close ties to intelligence agencies. And a New Hampshire Trump supporter who has only recently graduated from high school.

These are some of the people the Trump administration has hired for positions across the federal government, according to documents received by ProPublica through public-records requests.

While President Trump has not moved to fill many jobs that require Senate confirmation, he has quietly installed hundreds of officials to serve as his eyes and ears at every major federal agency, from the Pentagon to the Department of Interior.

Unlike appointees exposed to the scrutiny of the Senate, members of these so-called “beachhead teams” have operated largely in the shadows, with the White House declining to publicly reveal their identities…”
