Misadventures of a minority-elect President 103

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:

White House tries to make Trump look good on his first dumbed-down foreign trip – despite the obvious, more evidence that there are still a lot of stupid people in this country, making friends – or a fool out of himself, depending on how you look at it – at NATO, Federal Appeals Court upholds the block on Trump’s Muslim ban, Trump can’t be trusted to keep any secrets – for obvious reasons, Trump’s Syrian war crimes piling up as his administrations illegally kills record number of civilians, Trump’s idiotic delinquent actions as he implodes over what is now a criminal investigation are going to be his downfall and more.

Because bragging about Trump’s first majorly dumbed-down Middle Eastern trip makes our impotent leader feel important.

Why – and How – Is Trump’s Base Still Loyal to a Guy Who Is a Proven Disaster? article from AlterNet. –
http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/why-and-how-trumps-base-still-loyal-guy-who-proven-disaster

Trump’s minions reveal yet more evidence that there are a lot of stupid people in this country:

“Trump supporters haven’t been swayed by empathy or appeals to logic.

After all the lies, contradictions, hypocrisy, flip-flops, gaffes, unforced errors, self-pity, insults, provocations, threats, bullying, betrayals, disappointments, scapegoating, exploitation, nepotism, and corruption, why is Donald Trump still beloved by 35 percent of the country?

The most popular theory in the mainstream media is that Trumpists think Trump will bring jobs back. The hypothesis here is that their support for Trump derives entirely from economic anxiety over globalization, loss of manufacturing, the supposed failures of Obamacare, wage stagnation, income inequality, trade deficits, and soaring national debt. But economic angst does not really explain Trumpists’ unwavering devotion to Trump, whose cabinet appointments, executive orders and legislative proposals generally do not help or even pretend to help them.

Nor is the economic angst theory borne out by the evidence. As policy analyst Sean McElwee and Prof. Jason McDaniel recently wrote in The Nation, an analysis of “the comprehensive American National Election Studies pre- and post-election survey of over 4,000 respondents … [yielded] little evidence to suggest individual economic distress benefited Trump” in the 2016 election. And even though all the economic data indicate both that the unemployment rate is consistently below 5 percent and that immigrants help to improve the economy, Trumpists are determined to believe just the opposite…”

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 firing of FBI Director James Comey – who reportedly sought more funds for Russia probe before Trump fired him – could cause serious blow back, our illegitimate President’s latest attempts of overturning his Muslim Ban fails miserably – for obvious reasons – and tarnishes the lawyers that foolishly try to defend it, echoing Nixon during Watergate could fuel deeper probes into his Russia scandal, Trump lets anger over his Russia scandal get the best of him as his problems multiply, innocent people don’t normally act the way Trump is acting, Flynn subpoenaed by Senate Intel Committee, the bull shit spewed by our inept leader and his miscreantic administration is starting to be noticed for what it is – which a recent poll shows is turning into bad news for him, Reporter arrested for asking a corrupt Trump-appointee a question, a look back at 1967 offers insight into fighting back against Trump, some try – and will fail – to stop protests when they become so powerful and a lot more.

Trump appears to be echoing Nixon during Watergate again with his poorly-timed dismissal of his FBI Director, allegedly over Clinton’s emails, that could haunt him badly in his short-lived illegitimate Presidency.

All is not well in Trump’s land of delusion as his latest attempt of overturning his Muslim Ban fails miserably and taints those who foolishly try to defend it.

Trump’s firing of Comey seems ‘suicidal’ – but it could ‘energize’ the Russia probe article from Business Insider. –
http://www.businessinsider.com/what-will-happen-to-trump-russia-fbi-investigation-comey-firing-fired-2017-5

Shades of Nixon redux:

“President Donald Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, who was leading an investigation into whether Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election, would be viewed as “suicidal” in any other administration.

“In any normal administration, firing the director of the FBI during an investigation of the administration would be viewed as suicidal,” said Robert Deitz, a former top lawyer for the CIA and the National Security Agency who served under Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.

“This of course is not a normal administration,” he added. “But no matter what, this will create a firestorm that will disturb even Trump loyalists on the Hill.”

Most Democrats and a handful of Republicans were quick to condemn Trump’s decision to fire Comey, who was in the middle of investigating the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia when he was unexpectedly fired on Tuesday evening…”

http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/trump-voters-are-willing-be-conned-long-he-deports-immigrants-and-bombs-world

More on the growing delusions and ignorance of Trump supporters:

“They’re able to overlook an astonishing amount of corruption.

If you were paying attention to what we learned about Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, then you know that the president of the United States was once the impresario of a student-swindling Trump University, the founder of a Trump Foundation designed for tax evasion and illegal self-dealing, and the chief executive of a Trump Organization that has long relied on various techniques of grifting, from rip-offs of workers and contractors to serial bankruptcies.

And if you know all that, then you cannot be surprised by the way that he and his family have conducted themselves during the first 100 days of his presidency, which is also the way they will behave until they leave or are removed from the White House. They have misused the office of the president to enrich themselves in ways that none of Trump’s predecessors, not even the most venal, could have imagined doing.

Nor can you be surprised that this grasping figure and his appointed cronies, notably Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, have floated a tax “reform” that will enrich the very wealthiest Americans by trillions of dollars, while decimating necessary government functions and depriving millions of working-class and low-income families of health care…”

Trump to address nation sandbagged by record low approval rating: NBC/WSJ poll article from CNBC. –
http://www.cnbc.com/2017/02/26/trump-to-address-nation-sandbagged-by-record-low-approval-rating-nbcwsj-poll.html

“President Donald Trump will address the nation on Tuesday night saddled with the lowest approval ratings of any new chief executive in modern American history, a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll shows.

Just 44 percent of Americans approve of Mr. Trump’s performance as president, while 48 percent disapprove, according to the survey. Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush all had significantly positive net approval ratings at the outset of their terms.

A 52 percent majority calls early challenges the Trump White House has faced unique to his administration and an indication of real problems. Some 43 percent call them typical growing pains for new presidents.

These results signal difficulty for the president in his attempt to use his address to a joint session of Congress to broaden support for his policy agenda. Republicans hold enough seats in the House and Senate to answer his call for repealing and replacing Obamacare and overhauling the tax system without help from Democrats. But they have no consensus on either subject so far and little margin for error…”
