Misadventures of a minority-elect President 185

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 America’s worst-ever popular vote losing president begins with a majority of people believing that he hasn’t accomplished much of anything during his first 10 months in office – despite his lies that he has, the list of scandals fueling Trump’s failed presidency are growing exponentially, the potentially lasting damage of Trump’s failed presidency and the consequences it brings, enrollment for Obamacare is breaking records despite Trump’s lies about it being finished – though the long-term effects of his pernicious actions by edict remain to be seen, the minority of minions that ‘elected’ our lackluster lame duck president on the premise that he would bring back coal jobs are feeling severely disappointed, on the malevolent, profound corruption and ignorance that is our nefarious narcissist’s new normal, one year after the 2016 elections Trump is – and always will be – an illegitimate president, lasting resistance to Trump is on the rise, Trump’s politics have been thoroughly repudiated and much more.

13 Trump Allies and Counting Busted in Explosive ‘Paradise Papers’ Leak article from Alternet. –
https://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/13-trump-allies-and-counting-busted-explosive-paradise-papers-leak

Another week another scandal for our dimwitted dip shit that will prove costly:

“The U.S.-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), the publishers of the high-profile Panama Papers leaks, published another database — The Paradise Papers — on Sunday revealing offshore of “some of the world’s most powerful people and companies.”

The Paradise Papers include around 13.4 million leaked documents, including nearly 7 million loan agreements, financial statements, emails, trust deeds and other paperwork from the Bermuda law firm Appleby Group Services Ltd. Appleby was named offshore firm of the year by Legal 500 UK in 2015. The law firms branches are in Bermuda, Isle of Man, Jersey, Guernsey, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Mauritius and the Seychelles, and it has a presence in Hong Kong and Shanghai.

“The Paradise Papers reveal offshore interests and activities of more than 120 politicians and world leaders, including Queen Elizabeth II whose private estate indirectly invested in a rent-to-own loan company accused of predatory tactics. At least 13 allies, major donors and Cabinet members of U.S. President Donald Trump appear, including Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross’s interests in a shipping company that makes millions from an energy firm whose owners include Russian President Vladimir Putin’s son-in-law and a sanctioned Russian tycoon,” the press release by ICIJ summarized.

Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut said Ross had misled Congress and the Americans by concealing his ongoing stake in the company, Navigator…”

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 illegitimate minority-elect president with questions of whether or not his diminished mental capacities allow him to understand what ‘collusion’ means, Trump’s GOP brown shirts prefer party loyalty over policing our dimwitted dip shit – which makes them just as guilty as he is, Trump’s collusion woes from his growing Russia scandal are just getting started, all of our lackluster lame duck president’s problems are everyone else’s fault – never his, questions abound about when – not if – Trump will be impeached, even Trump’s mother is worried about her deviant son and his behavior, how the joke Trump calls his fraudulent tax reform scam would destroy most Americans while enriching Trump and those that own him and much more.

6 Loose Ends in Mueller’s Investigation That Could End Up Shaking Trump’s Presidency article from Alternet. –
https://www.alternet.org/election-2016/six-loose-ends-muellers-investigation-could-have-big-implications

Trump’s collusion woes from his growing Russia scandal are just beginning:

“Despite denials by the White House and dismissive right-wing media coverage, special counsel Robert Mueller’s opening salvo—the indictments and a guilty plea—has stunned Washington for its aggressiveness, legal positioning and comprehensive strategy that suggests the Trump campaign and White House’s problems will only deepen.

“The first big takeaway from Monday morning’s flurry of charging and plea documents with respect to Paul Manafort Jr., Richard Gates III and George Papadopoulos is this: The president of the United States had as his campaign chairman a man who had allegedly served for years as an unregistered foreign agent for a puppet government of Vladimir Putin, a man who was allegedly laundering remarkable sums of money even while running the now-president’s campaign, a man who allegedly lied about all of this to the FBI and the Justice Department,” wrote Susan Hennessey and Benjamin Wittes for LawfareBlog.com.

“The second big takeaway,” they continued, “is even starker: A member of President Trump’s campaign team admits that he was working with people he knew to be tied to the Russian government to ‘arrange a meeting between the campaign and the Russian government officials’ and to obtain ‘dirt’ on Hillary Clinton in the form of thousands of hacked emails—and that he lied about these activities to the FBI. He briefed President Trump on at least some of them.”

By Tuesday morning, we know Manafort and Gates are taking one legal path—fighting the special counsel’s indictment, its accusations, in court, while Papadopoulos already has pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents, and is most likely cooperating with investigators to reduce his sentence. Mueller’s first moves have been characterized by lawyers as a classic opening salvo in launching “a big case,” which raises a series of questions and loose ends starting with: what else does he know and who else is targeted?…”

We begin today’s misadventures of our illegitimate minority-elect bigot president with his continuing fight over his inept handling of notifying military families of their loss – particularly when the family isn’t White, the GOP and their brown shirt leadership are aiding and abetting Trump’s crimes, more revelations on the scam that is Trump’s fraudulent tax reform plan, GOP still trying to cover up our dimwitted dip shit’s crimes by focusing on Hillary Clinton, our Liar-in-Chief caught in another lie as emails reveal he lied about contacting gold star families, despite the infinite revelations of his profound stupidity our demented delusionist falsely claims he’s smart and has a great memory, how Trump’s intentional sabotage of Obamacare will affect us all, when you can’t prove your innocence simply provide yet another distraction plus much more.

Why the Dealmaker in Chief can’t negotiate any agreements article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/why-the-dealmaker-chief-cant-negotiate-any-agreements

Aside from the fact that he’s a pathological liar who can’t be trusted:

“Donald Trump has long boasted that he has a unique skill that others lack. “Deals are my art form,” the Republican bragged. “Other people paint beautifully or write poetry. I like making deals, preferably big deals. That’s how I get my kicks.”

As we’ve discussed before, the evidence to back up these boasts has always been elusive – no one has ever been able to prove that Trump actually excels in negotiations or deal-making – but he kept talking about his expertise as a guy who knew, perhaps better than anyone in the world, how to seal a deal. Trump’s books were ghost-written, but he’s ostensibly the author of The Art of the Deal.

And yet, nine months into his presidency, Trump hasn’t negotiated any meaningful deals with anyone. The Washington Post had a good piece yesterday highlighting one of the hindrances to the president’s goals as a negotiator.

President Trump campaigned as one of the world’s greatest dealmakers, but after nine months of struggling to broker agreements, lawmakers in both parties increasingly consider him an untrustworthy, chronically inconsistent and easily distracted negotiator…”

Small donors are not paying Trump’s legal bills. It’s worse. article from Think Progress. –
https://thinkprogress.org/small-donors-are-not-paying-trumps-legal-bills-its-worse-2f70371d35af/

Despite it being immoral, it is not illegal – though it probably should be – for Trump to use RNC funds to pay for the legal fees to keep him and his ilk out of prison:

“Donald Trump is using funds from both the Republican National Committee (RNC) and his re-election campaign to cover his legal fees connected to the Russia investigation. The RNC is also footing the legal bill for Trump’s son, Don Jr., who is also caught up in the investigation being conducted by special counsel Robert Mueller.

According to a Tuesday report by Reuters, President Donald Trump would be the first president in modern campaign finance history to use these funds to cover the costs of a criminal probe. Reuters notes this is legal because the Federal Election Commission allows for use of private campaign funds to pay for legal costs incurred “as a candidate or elected official.”

Trump, who has claimed to have a net worth of $10 billion dollars, used RNC funds to pay his personal lawyer John Dowd $100,000 and an additional $131,250 to pay Jay Sekulow, another attorney representing Trump who frequently appears on TV. On top of those payments, the RNC also paid nearly $200,000 for Trump Jr.’s lawyers.

While the president’s reelection campaign fund solicits money from small donors, the RNC is not using these funds for Trump’s legal bills. Rather, the money is being paid through a separate RNC legal defense fund. This fund attracts almost exclusively large donors and can accept up to $101,700 per year from each individual or corporate PAC…”

Donald Trump’s Latest Historical Flub Should Sincerely Frighten You article from The Huffington Post. –
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/the-rise-of-ignorance-in-the-age-of-trump_us_5908b01ce4b05279d4edc007

“For his supporters, ignorance is not only bliss, but something to aspire to.

President Trump has spent very little of his 70 golden years of life on this planet studying American history or government. That has become painfully obvious. He clearly hasn’t studied much world history either. And even as he sits in the most important office in the country, he refuses to become a student of history, or to try on intellectual curiosity.

Unlike our last president, Mr. Trump has never been, nor will he ever be, an intellectual. His wild statements over the last few days demonstrate once again that he knows nothing of America’s past, and even more alarming, he does not understand the seriousness of this global moment, and the consequences of his words which reverberate around the world in the seconds it takes for him to tweet them or speak them to a reporter.

And here’s what most upsetting about it all: some 45% of Americans simply don’t care, which means this could go on unabated for four years or more. They didn’t care when they elected him, and they don’t care now that he continues to tell outrageous lies, and showcases his ignorance every time he’s interviewed or gets his hands on Twitter. They don’t care that he doesn’t understand why the Civil War occurred, or that Andrew Jackson died 16 years before that war, and therefore could not have been “really angry” about it…”
