We begin today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president with an extremely embarrassing book that will undoubtedly accelerate the end of his failed presidency, why the debates over Trump’s mental deficiencies – which he has repeatedly proven he is suffering from – don’t matter, our lackluster lame duck president isn’t taking credit for his biggest accomplishments for obvious reasons, our national embarrassment’s complete corruption and ignorance have been a matter of public record for decades so it’s a mystery as to why his enablers in Washington continue aiding and abetting him – which makes them just as guilty as he is, our fake president’s war on fake news serve as distractions from his failed presidency, understanding how and why our idiotic Twitter tyrant tweets is key to identifying and ending his corrupt regime, our demented delinquent speaks at a 4th grade level – which is the lowest of the last 15 U.S. Presidents, Trump approval ratings reveal he’s the least popular president – by far – to enter a second year in office, Trump’s fraudulent ‘voter integrity commission’ found zero evidence of voter fraud, Trump’s violations of the emoluments clause and conflicts of interest are making him millions, America is paying a heavy price for the damage being inflicted by our Delusional Orange Menace, our racist Shit for brains president with no mandate just can’t stop showing his true colors and a lot more.

6 Things Trump Actually Deserves Credit For article from Alternet. –

Our lackluster lame duck president likes taking credit for his bogus accomplishments – most of which have absolutely nothing to do with him – so he needs to be recognized for his failures too.

Is President Trump Mentally Ill? It Doesn’t Matter article from Talking Points Memo. –

Trump has repeatedly proven that he has serious mental deficits and it will prove disastrous for this country if something isn’t done:

“We are now back on to the feverish debate about whether or not Donald Trump is mentally ill or suffering from the onset of dementia. The most important thing to know about this debate is that it simply doesn’t matter. Diagnoses are something for trained professionals and even they are challenged to make them without a proper in-person examination. But again, it doesn’t matter.

For public purposes, clinical diagnoses are only relevant as predictors of behavior. If the President has a cognitive deficiency or mental illness that might cause him to act in unpredictable or dangerous ways or simply be unable to do the job, we need to know. But My God, we do know! We see him acting in these ways every day – and not just in multiple news reports from an abundance of different news organizations. We see it with our own eyes: in his public actions, his public statements, his tweets. All the diagnosis of a mental illness could tell us is that Trump might be prone to act in ways that we literally see him acting in every day: impulsive, erratic, driven by petty aggressions and paranoia, showing poor impulsive control, an inability to moderate self-destructive behavior. He is frequently either frighteningly out of touch with reality or sufficiently pathological in his lying that it is impossible to tell. Both are very bad.

It is now widely believed that President Reagan showed early signs of his later Alzheimers diagnosis during the latter part of his presidency. How much or whether it affected his ability to carry out his duties is less clear. But that is a very different case. The kinds of subtle lapses in memory or cognition that might hint at such an affliction would be very difficult for the public to be aware of, especially if his staff is making efforts to conceal them. We don’t have that problem here.

It is also important to understand the nature of mental health diagnoses. Neurological disorders and lapses of cognitive function are different and something I know less about. But a key element of most DSM-V diagnoses is the degree to which the behavior or affect impairs normal life functions. Can you hold down a job? Can you carry on healthy or functional relationships with other people? Can you sleep and take basic care of your health? This fact is important for a number of reasons. But it highlights an important fact: the nature of clinical diagnoses of mental illness are heavily informed by the need for and potential efficacy of treatment. The framework of these clinical definitions simply don’t line up well with the issues that are important to ask about public officials, which are more or less entirely about behavior…”

Donald Trump Goes Full Fredo article from The Atlantic. –

Our national embarrassment’s complete corruption and incompetence have been a matter of record for decades so it remains a mystery as to why he was ever allowed to run for President and why his enablers in Washington continue aiding and abetting his crimes – which makes them just as guilty as Trump is.

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 top lawyers lying to him about his Russia scandal to prevent his being impeached for obstruction of justice and covering up his crimes, Trump abandoned populism – which isn’t surprising to the majority that didn’t ‘elect’ him, Trump supporters are heavy consumers of fake news courtesy of the idiot they voted for, the price we pay for having a profoundly corrupt and ignorant demented delinquent running this country, the duplicitous irony of our racist Twitter tyrant’s alleged support of the Iranian people – after banning them from entering America, our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator is waging war on the Justice Department since he’ll be going down for the count soon over his Russia scandal and obstruction of justice, it’s time for our grandiose, impulsive idiot in the White House to have a psyche eval, White House tell all book reveals what many have known about Trump for years – which is why he never should have been allowed to run for president in the first place as the indications of his mental deficiencies keep getting confirmed, yet another Trump lie – this time about job creation – comes back to bite him in the ass as 2017 was the worst year for job creation since 2011, as Trump’s corrupt regime gets closer to being removed due to all the crimes committed, the desperation will grow as will his pernicious outbursts and actions and much more.

How Trump abandoned populism article from The Week. –

Trump never had any intention of helping the minority of minions that ‘elected’ him and never will – it’s all about him and his fraudulent billionaire friends that own him:

“Conservatives inclined to cheer major tax-cut legislation even if it’s signed by a president they don’t particularly care for are frustrated by its unpopularity. They blame the media and Democrats for torquing up class warfare. In effect, they ask, don’t you know you’ll get a tax cut, too?!

Here is an alternative explanation: Working- and middle-class voters don’t much care that they might get a (temporary) tax cut. The problem is, when they hear Republicans touting the magic of cuts, they smell a rat. They’ve been hearing the same rhetoric for 40 years, and they know the fix is in. They suspect that the wealthiest Americans stand to gain the most — and they would be right.

It didn’t have to be this way.

In fact, Donald Trump, the candidate, promised the country a different way, a different kind of Republicanism; he promised a kind of radical-center populism. Candidate Trump entertained the idea of raising taxes on the wealthy, including himself. As late as this past September, he signaled a commitment to eliminating the carried-interest loophole for hedge fund and private equity managers. As late as this past March, there was still talk of breaking up the big banks and reinstating Glass-Steagall legislation. He says he still wants an infrastructure bill — but the deficits caused by these tax cuts (estimates vary from $500 billion to $1 trillion over the next 10 years, depending on how much growth they stimulate and, conversely, how much easier it becomes to game the tax code) will make it hard to find money for new spending…”

We begin today’s misadventures of our illegitimate, minority-elect president with the unraveling of his fraudulent ‘voter integrity commission,’ a look at the metastasized canter that has been the first year of America’s illegitimate worst-ever president’s failed presidency, White House employees are not allowed to read our deranged Twitter tyrant’s tweets, more on Trump’s fraudulent tax reform scam, what happens when a very big country is led by a very demented little man and the price Americans are paying for their Liar-in-Chief’s profound ignorance, the number of lies coming out of Trump’s mouth on a daily basis continues rising – currently averaging at least 9 lies per day, our pussy-grabbing predatory president’s past is once again coming back to haunt him and a lot more.

When America’s worst, most corrupt president appoints judges Americans are going to have serious problems and ‘Justice’ no longer exists:

“Republican President Donald Trump’s policy agenda has been moving at a snail’s pace — at least, it has for anything that hasn’t involved him simply signing executive orders.

Still, there is one place he has been remarkably successful, and that is at stacking the courts with far right judicial nominees. Benches that were left empty for years thanks to GOP filibustering and partisanship are now being loaded with a line of judges hand-picked by conservative action groups, leading us to a permanent social conservative judiciary that could haunt the country for decades to come.

The President’s earlier appointments — especially his Supreme Court pick Neil Gorsuch — gave us a clear guideline of the pro-business, anti-civil liberties, anti-federalism type nominees we could expect from the White House, and that has continued unabated even into the most recently confirmed candidates.

Take Joan Larsen: she will now serve on the US Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit, despite opposition from 27 LGBTQ advocacy organizations who brought up Larson’s troubling record on gay rights issues, including calling the Supreme Court’s strike down of the Texas ban on sodomy “revolutionary.”…”

A small example of our national embarrassment’s Twitter tirades that do nothing but make him look like the impotent moron that he really is:

“The president of the United States, Donald J. Trump, woke up on Sunday morning raring to tweet. Starting at 7:40 a.m., after his breakfast Big Mac, Trump began firing off a string of missives, ranging from loopy to outright unhinged. The president, since he has nothing else to do, clearly scoured the responses to his tweets finding a few meme-type graphics and gifs to retweet because, sure, that’s what normal presidents of normal countries do before its citizens wake up.

The president tweeted or retweeted 15 times on Sunday morning. Here’s an official ranking of the top eight of Trump’s Sunday morning tweets from least to most insane:

How Trump Is Destroying America article from The Atlantic. –

America’s worst-ever president’s delusional belief that he is above the law and accountable to no one is going to sink his failing presidency.


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…”

When Trump recently visited hurricane-ravaged Houston he praised the Coast Guard while knocking the journalists tasked with covering the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

“Think of it, almost 11,000 people by going into winds that the media would not go into . . . unless it’s a really good story,” Trump said, before gesturing toward the media.

That same day, the Associated Press published a story about the flooding of toxic waste sites in Houston, noting that Scott Pruitt’s EPA was still not on the ground. The agency responded in Trump-like fashion, attacking the press to distract from legitimate questions…”

Tuesday night at a focus group in Pittsburgh, a group of reporters heard from a different slice of Trump voters — ones he’s lost for now.

“Outrageous,” “disappointed,” “not ready” were among the adjectives that focus group members tossed out when asked for a single word to describe the president — and those were from the participants who had voted for him.

What President Trump Actually Accomplished in His First 6 Months article from New York Magazine. –

Despite Trump’s lies he hasn’t accomplished a lot – aside from being the most unpopular president in history:

“The first six months of the Trump administration have been marked by a massive revitalization of the U.S. manufacturing sector, an end to the lawlessness of the Obama years, and a new respect for America on the world stage, thanks to the president’s soaring, Reaganesque rhetoric — at least, that’s what this video released by the White House would have you believe:

In reality, President Trump is historically unpopular, and despite having a Republican-controlled Congress, he hasn’t passed any major legislation. Many measures Trump promised to enact on day one — including overhauling the tax code, building a wall on the southern border, and repealing and replacing Obamacare — have been delayed, curtailed, or possibly killed by disagreements within the GOP.

But amid all the chaos of President Trump’s first six months in office, he has managed to enact some measures that have a concrete effect on Americans’ lives. Here’s how Trump has changed America in the first eighth (or sixteenth) of his presidency:

Put Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court
Though Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell deserves the credit for stealing President Obama’s final Supreme Court appointment, technically it was Trump who replaced the late Justice Antonin Scalia with an equally conservative 49-year-old justice. As FiveThirtyEight notes, in his first few months on the job, Justice Gorsuch has proven to be just what conservatives were hoping for:…”

The Making of the Tabloid Presidency article from The New York Book Review. –

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…”
