Misadventures of a minority-elect President 171

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 begin with his latest delusional diatribe during his United Nations speech while yet again revealing the depths of his ignorance in its full glory on a public stage, the chump in the White House is immorally using RNC funds to pay his legal expenses for his growing Russia scandal, yet more revelations that Trump is not now nor will he ever be presidential as his dystopian dipshittery pushes us closer to another illegal war, Trump’s conflicts of interest keep growing plus a lot more.

Small donors are not paying Trump’s legal bills. It’s worse. article from Think Progress. –

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…”

Misadventures of a minority-elect President 86

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:

Ousted Obama official to speak on Trump’s Russia scandal, a new stage in the U.S. health care shenanigans, trying to put a lid on those speaking out against our illegitimate minority-elect President, Trump lied about his tax cut paying for itself, Trump’s egregious agenda could take a while to implement, our presidential twit takes to twitter – again – to deflect attention from his malfeasance, Trump’s delusional base holding firm but support from everyone else dropping based on most recent poll, Trumpcare advocates spend Sunday lying their way through political shows, Trump’s growing conflicts of interest – this time courtesy of his son-in-law, reports of Trump clashing with his National Security Adviser, Muslim ban language deleted from White House website after question from reporter, obsessing about the illegitimate dipshit in the White House distracts us from other serious issues Washington and the media don’t care for you to know about, the moral travesty of Trumpcare, Sean Spicer still lying his ignorant ass off, our Hustler-in-Chief is at it again and more.

A new stage in the US health care counterrevolution article from The World Socialist Web Site. –

“The passage by the US House of Representatives of the American Health Care Act is a political milestone. Never before has the US ruling elite revealed so nakedly the goal of its health care “reform” efforts of the past quarter-century. Millions of working people are to be deprived of health insurance and access to health care in order to finance a trillion-dollar payoff to the financial aristocracy.

The centerpiece of the legislation is the gutting of Medicaid, the government health insurance program for the poor, and its effective termination as an entitlement program. This will be the prelude to the destruction of Medicare and Social Security.

The massive cuts in health coverage in the bill have sparked popular outrage. Every significant occupational group in health care provision, from family physicians to psychiatrists, and advocacy groups for those suffering from cancer, heart disease, lung disease, multiple sclerosis and other illnesses have all spoken out to denounce the cruelty of the legislation endorsed so enthusiastically last Thursday by President Donald Trump.

While Democratic politicians in Congress pretend to share the public outrage, their objections to this monstrous piece of class-war legislation are purely cosmetic. The Republican legislation only does more crudely what Obamacare aimed to do more deviously, behind a cloud of reformist rhetoric: cut the cost of health care provision for American corporations and the capitalist state by shifting the burden to working people…”
