Misadventures of a minority-elect President 130

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:

Our misadventures begin today with America’s image plunging to new lows under our illegitimate, minority-elect President, Trump’s last false claims – devoid of evidence as usual – of a Syrian gas attack take center stage as the Trump cabal appears to be preparing yet another false flag Syrian chemical weapons attack as a prelude for committing more war crimes and ignorant attempts at regime change, quoting Trump as an anonymous source explains why the National Enquirer is joining his ministry of propaganda to spread his lies, our Blackmailer-in-Chief is threatening to force poor people into a lose-lose situation if his fraudulent ‘healthcare’ tax giveaway isn’t passed, our national embarrassment’s White House has no credibility – nationally or internationally, the growing list of arguments to use in case you ever get into a squabble with a Trump voter, in a little over 5 months Trump has told more than 337 lies and a lot more.

White House warns Assad may be preparing chemical weapons attack article from The New York Post. –
http://nypost.com/2017/06/26/white-house-warns-assad-may-be-preparing-chemical-weapons-attack/

Here we go again: Prepare for another false flag Syrian chemical gas attack as justification for committing more war crimes and attempts to overthrow the regime there continue:

“The White House accused the Syrian government Monday of preparing for another chemical attack against their own people — and threatened a “heavy price” if they went through with an atrocity.

A statement from the office of the press secretary said that the purported attack could lead to the “mass murder of civilians” and warned Syrian president Bashar al Assad he would be consequences.

“The United States had identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime,” the statement read. “The activities are similar to preparations the regime made before its April 4, 2017.”

The White House added that the main goal of US forces in the region are to eliminate ISIS from their Syrian strongholds…”

Misadventures of a minority-elect President 124

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 illegitimate, minority-elect president begin with him being very upset that he’s being investigated for obstruction of justice, our incompetent leader was a lousy business man and he’s an even lousier president, our profoundly corrupt and ignorant wannabe dictator is causing yuge problems for the GOP, we’ll soon see the fate of Trump’s Muslim Ban, another loser Trump nominated for a cabinet position goes down in flames, our illegitimate Loser-in-Chief doing his damnedest to deflect attention from his imminent implosion with more Twitter tantrums, the case for impeaching our incorrigibly inept leader – and why he’s such a failure, Trump and the GOP have no mandate and much more.

The unpopular Trump is shrinking the GOP article from The Washington Post. –
https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/wp/2017/06/14/the-unpopular-trump-is-shrinking-the-gop/

It’s getting to the point where the GOP is going to pay a huge price for our dimwitted dip shit’s corruption and ignorance:

“President Trump has two problems. First, public disapproval of the president and a lack of confidence in him are skyrocketing. Second, Republicans’ solace that “at least the GOP is with him” may be misguided.

As for the overall numbers, his disapproval rating hit a new high of 60 percent in the Gallup poll. In the latest Politico-Morning Consult poll, 53 percent of voters think former FBI director James B. Comey is very or somewhat honest. By a margin of 45 percent to 32 percent, voters pick Comey over Trump when it comes to honesty. A strong plurality of voters think Trump fired Comey over the Russia investigation, not due to concerns about his performance (47 percent to 36 percent).

By a large majority, voters disfavor his signature bill, the American Health Care Act (which now he concedes is “mean”!). Big tax cuts for the rich, the heart of his tax plan, are unpopular as well. In short, even if Trump could get back to his agenda, it is not going to find favor with the voters.

As for GOP support, let’s keep in mind a few things. First, he’s a minority president who got only 46.1 percent of the vote. He cannot afford to lose voters; he needs to gain support from independents and even Democrats. Second, the Virginia gubernatorial primary results and generic congressional polling show that Democrats have a decisive advantage when it comes to enthusiasm and engagement. Third, we have the Virginia gubernatorial primary results and in a week we will have the results of Georgia’s 6th Congressional District special election to test the proposition that as the GOP becomes the Party of Trump, it becomes less attractive to a mass of voters who have traditionally considered themselves to be Republicans. A shrunken GOP means losses in 2018, the potential for the House to flip to Democratic control and proceed to impeachment, and the emergence of either a primary challenger to Trump, a third-party movement or an enlarged Democratic Party with GOP defectors…”

Russia cloud settles in over Trump’s White House article from CNN. –

On Trump’s ongoing Russia scandal and the damage being done:

“Washington (CNN)The Russia “cloud” is growing over President Donald Trump and threatening to wreck another week for the embattled White House as one of his closest allies tries to avoid a public spectacle on Capitol Hill.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ announcement that he would testify before Senate Russia investigators caught everyone — including the intelligence committee — by surprise. Now, before he even testifies, the focus is both on Sessions and whether or not he would appear before the TV cameras like former FBI Director James Comey did last week, when 19.5 million Americans watched.

Trump team has struggled to move the focus away from Russia.

The White House is hoping this week to drive a message focused on his agenda. His daughter and top adviser, Ivanka Trump, is leading events focused on workforce development and college affordability…”

Opinion: Truth the Pill for Trump’s Dysfunction article from Roll Call. –
http://www.rollcall.com/news/opinion/trump-dysfunction-congress-truth

On countering our dimwitted dip shit’s mendacity and meanness with truth:

“The Associated Press, the nation’s leading and most respected wire service, has always erred on the side of caution. Buried deep in the AP’s DNA is the hazy memory that its leading competitor, the United Press, stained its credibility for decades by prematurely announcing the end of World War I.

But never in the following century did the Associated Press write anything this blunt about any American elected leader: “President Donald Trump can’t be counted on to give accurate information to Americans when violent acts are unfolding abroad.”

That lede on a Monday “AP Fact Check” article by Calvin Woodward and Jim Drinkard actually understated the president’s duplicitous fearmongering in response to Saturday night’s terrorist attack in London.

Take the most vicious presidential statement on Saturday night delivered through Twitter: “At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no need to be alarmed!’” Trump’s snide tweet about London Mayor Sadiq Khan took his remarks wildly out of context (he was referring to the massive police deployment as nonalarming)…”

Donald Trump has unleashed a white crime wave article from Business Insider. –
http://www.businessinsider.com/donald-trump-and-white-crime-2017-6

On how Trump is fueling right-wing hatred and encouraging terrorism:

“Last week, in Portland, Oregon, a man with a history of white supremacist rhetoric allegedly killed two men and injured one other who had tried to stop his harassment of two young women—one black, the other wearing a hijab.

A week earlier, in College Park, Maryland, another young man—active in white supremacist Facebook groups— killed a black college student after confronting him on the street, according to police. In March, a white supremacist reportedly traveled from Baltimore to New York City with the express purpose of killing a black man, which he did, before turning himself into police. Earlier that month , a Sikh man was shot and injured in front of his house in a Seattle suburb.

His alleged attacker reportedly shouted “go back to your country.” Days earlier, in Kansas, authorities described how a man walked into a bar and shot three men , including two immigrants from India, after shouting “get out of my country” and yelling racial slurs. One of the Indian men, Srinivas Kuchibhotla, died of his wounds. More recently, a California man was alleged to have stabbed a black man with a machete after yelling racial slurs—he’s facing charges—and a Native American man was run down and killed by an assailant who allegedly shouted racial slurs.

These events are not isolated. They represent a growing tide of intolerance in the United States, fanned by the presidential election and embodied by the sitting president. At the same time, they—and the larger forces they represent—aren’t novel. The rise of racist reaction in politics almost always brings a similar rise of racist violence in civil society. For as much as the current period feels new, we are living through an old, and very American, cycle of behavior…”

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…”

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…”

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…”
