Misadventures of a minority-elect President 100

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:

The case for obstruction of justice just became easier to prove – much to our minority-elect president’s chagrin – as another report reveals he asked his Intel Chiefs to public deny his Russia ties – though to their credit they refused, Trump’s approval at lowest its been since Inauguration day, the WAPO and NYT urge resisting impeachment until Trump helps lose the GOP majority in Congress, what Trump’s supporters are wrong about in supporting his firing of Comey, Trump enabling more fraud for his Wall Street friends by killing Dodd-Frank, like her husband, Melania has issues with tweeting fake news and false information, the Trump cabal’s pandemic of lies, more on our National embarrassment’s speech in Saudi Arabia, Trump’s proposed budget gives the finger to those foolish enough to be conned by him, opening the door to more terrorism as U.S. takes Syria’s Al-Qaeda off terror watchlists and lots more.

Telling two Russian visitors that he had taken off the pressure of an FBI investigation – after sharing classified information with them – proves that Trump was obstructing justice.

Holding steady with a 38 percent approval rating isn’t boding well for our illegitimate, minority-elect President.

Who better to lecture Muslims than Islam expert Donald Trump? article from The Guardian. –
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/may/21/muslims-islamic-donald-trump-saudis-riyadh

Allowing Trump to lecture anyone on anything is ridiculous, but allowing him to lecture on Islam is a joke:

“If there’s anything consistent about the Trump White House so far, it’s that people get appointed to positions for which they are totally unsuited. More than that: they’re frequently the worst possible candidates for the role. That starts with the president himself, of course – less presidential than your average radio phone-in ranter. It was evident in the appointment of Michael Flynn, a man allegedly in hock to the Russian state, as national security adviser; of multiple Goldman Sachs alumni to oversee financial regulation; and of Jeff Sessions, who regards the film Reefer Madness as accurate social commentary, as the top law-enforcement official in the land.

In the latest example, the Sessions acolyte Stephen Miller, one of the architects of Trump’s attempted Muslim ban, has been put in charge of winning over the Arab Muslim world. Miller was the principal author of a speech, delivered in Riyadh yesterday, in which the president said he wanted to “deliver a message of friendship and hope and love”. He went on to argue that the fight against terrorism was “a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life and … people who want to protect life and their religion”. Trump even shied away from the phrase he blasted Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for avoiding: “radical Islamic terrorism”.

The new approach is at odds with everything we know about Miller’s worldview, and that of his longtime supporter Steve Bannon. (Miller’s college-newspaper screeds about the war on Christmas are an entertaining study in one variety of radicalisation, if you can bear the grandiloquence.)

Almost all of Trump’s pronouncements on the subject stand in stark contrast to his words in Riyadh too (in October last year he condemned the Saudis as women-haters who “push gays … off buildings”. This weekend, he accepted a medal from their king)…”

Imploring those that work in our illegitimate, minority-elect President’s impotent White House to abandon ship before it goes down, Donald Trump Jr. appears to confirm the Comey memo is true, with appointed special prosecutor heading his Russia scandal Trump won’t be able to easily obstruct justice any more, Trump’s GOP brown shirts getting nervous over supporting their Liar-in-Chief who has created his own worst nightmare, Trump’s delusional dipshittery which allowed a minority to give him the White House is going to end up leading to his downfall, the relentless – albeit well deserved – bias against Donald Trump, our War Criminal-in-Chief is busy illegally bombing Syria again, revelations of what would happen in a post-Trump era – unless we were fortunate enough to have his entire illegitimate cabinet removed, the mounting evidence that Trump is trying his damnedest to cover up his malfeasance and more.

Our profoundly corrupt Liar-in-Chief won’t be able to easily obstruct justice any more:

“Appointment of Robert Mueller to investigate Kremlin collusion bypasses president and demonstrates seriousness of the allegations against his circle

With the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel, the future of Donald Trump’s presidency has become significantly more precarious.

Since coming to office Trump has acted as if the post was an elected monarchy – and up to now, he has been cosseted in that illusion by a largely servile Republican party. But what differentiates the US presidency from a monarchy, even under these conditions, are the permanent institutions, made up of civil servants, prosecutors and lawyers. Trump derided them as “the swamp”, in which everyone was for sale. Now “the swamp” has struck back.

Trump compounded his firing of the FBI director, James Comey, by smearing his reputation and putting it about that the boss had lost the faith of the rank and file. That offended phalanxes of investigators with extensive skills and powers – not the sort of people you want to alienate…”

Today’s misadventures of our illegitimate minority-elect president begin with Comey keeping record of his ‘improper’ phone calls and meetings with Trump whose GOP brown shirts don’t care about him giving classified info to Washington’s most recent frenemy Russia, a roundup of Trump’s current – growing – list of scandals, White House imploding as Trump’s shit storms create more controversies, it’s getting difficult to find Republicans to defend our impotent president on TV News and political theater shows, why our Liar-in-Chief is buried in self-created scandals, a short history of presidential obstruction of justice for our lackluster Liar-in-Chief, Trump holds whiny pity party press conference at U.S. Coast Guard graduation to bitch about the way he’s being treated in the media – the same media he used to bitch about his predecessor’s birth certificate conspiracy theory and much more.

http://www.alternet.org/election-2016/president-continues-be-terrible-everything-5-frightening-examples-trumps-incompetence

Trump’s upcoming foreign trip should prove quite entertaining:

“It is not hard to imagine how much worse things will be when Trump meets with all those foreign leaders.

You didn’t have to be a political genius—or a genius of any kind, really—to see that Donald Trump was going to be a disaster at being president. He clearly has no interest in politics or policy and doesn’t understand, or care to understand, the basics of the job. The Trump platform consists of unbelievable and unconstitutional lies all bound up with racist pipe dreams about how to Make America 1952 Again. To call Trump a con man is to insult hardworking, skilled con men and women the world over. Trump just recognized easy marks when he saw them, and told them what they wanted to hear. And what they wanted to hear was that someone else’s suffering would help them get ahead.

That’s how we got here. Sixty-three million ignorant, desperate and delusional Americans voted for a man uniquely unqualified to be president. Predictably, Trump has mucked up the task at every turn. On the rare occasions he shows up to work instead of golfing, Trump screws up with a frequency that can’t be measured by any currently available metric.

In just this last week (and we’re only three days in, mind you) Trump has spilled intelligence to the Russians, proved he’s a real-life Ron Burgundy and generally made the lives of White House staffers miserable. (Although, how much sympathy can you have for someone whose dream is to work in the Trump White House?)…”

Ten alternative facts for the post truth world article from The Guardian. –
https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/may/12/post-truth-worst-of-best-donald-trump-sean-spicer-kellyanne-conway

A look at our illegitimate, minority-elect President and his miscreant’s attempts to validate their alternate reality:

“A word on definition: “post truth” is emphatically not the same as lies, spin and falsehood. What is new is not mendacity but the public’s response to it – the growing primacy of emotional resonance over fact and evidence, the replacement of verification with social media algorithms that tell us what we want to hear. Truth is losing its value as society’s reserve currency, and legitimate scepticism is yielding place to pernicious relativism.

Here, as a primer, are 10 classic examples of post truth, past and present.

1. ‘Alternative facts’

On the morning after Donald Trump’s inauguration in January, Sean Spicer, the new White House press secretary, called a special press conference and insisted belligerently that “this was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe”. The crowd in photographs of Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration looked larger, he claimed, because of new white floor coverings laid on the National Mall that had the effect of “highlighting areas where people were not standing, while in years past, the grass eliminated this visual”.

As angry as Spicer and his boss might be, their position was hilariously unsustainable. It fell to Kellyanne Conway, senior aide to the president, to find some way of squaring the epistemological circle, of reconciling bogus claim with photographic evidence. On NBC’s Meet the Press the next day, Conway told Chuck Todd that there was a perfectly reasonable explanation: “Don’t be so overly dramatic about it, Chuck. You’re saying it’s a falsehood […] Sean Spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts to that.”…”
