Misadventures of a minority-elect President 185

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 America’s worst-ever popular vote losing president begins with a majority of people believing that he hasn’t accomplished much of anything during his first 10 months in office – despite his lies that he has, the list of scandals fueling Trump’s failed presidency are growing exponentially, the potentially lasting damage of Trump’s failed presidency and the consequences it brings, enrollment for Obamacare is breaking records despite Trump’s lies about it being finished – though the long-term effects of his pernicious actions by edict remain to be seen, the minority of minions that ‘elected’ our lackluster lame duck president on the premise that he would bring back coal jobs are feeling severely disappointed, on the malevolent, profound corruption and ignorance that is our nefarious narcissist’s new normal, one year after the 2016 elections Trump is – and always will be – an illegitimate president, lasting resistance to Trump is on the rise, Trump’s politics have been thoroughly repudiated and much more.

13 Trump Allies and Counting Busted in Explosive ‘Paradise Papers’ Leak article from Alternet. –
https://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/13-trump-allies-and-counting-busted-explosive-paradise-papers-leak

Another week another scandal for our dimwitted dip shit that will prove costly:

“The U.S.-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), the publishers of the high-profile Panama Papers leaks, published another database — The Paradise Papers — on Sunday revealing offshore of “some of the world’s most powerful people and companies.”

The Paradise Papers include around 13.4 million leaked documents, including nearly 7 million loan agreements, financial statements, emails, trust deeds and other paperwork from the Bermuda law firm Appleby Group Services Ltd. Appleby was named offshore firm of the year by Legal 500 UK in 2015. The law firms branches are in Bermuda, Isle of Man, Jersey, Guernsey, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Mauritius and the Seychelles, and it has a presence in Hong Kong and Shanghai.

“The Paradise Papers reveal offshore interests and activities of more than 120 politicians and world leaders, including Queen Elizabeth II whose private estate indirectly invested in a rent-to-own loan company accused of predatory tactics. At least 13 allies, major donors and Cabinet members of U.S. President Donald Trump appear, including Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross’s interests in a shipping company that makes millions from an energy firm whose owners include Russian President Vladimir Putin’s son-in-law and a sanctioned Russian tycoon,” the press release by ICIJ summarized.

Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut said Ross had misled Congress and the Americans by concealing his ongoing stake in the company, Navigator…”

Today’s misadventures of our pathetic, illegitimate, popular vote losing president begin with his outrageous, never-ending boasts which reveal just how desperate he has become to try and prove he is legitimate despite the obvious, Trump and his ilk have lied repeatedly (84 times so far) about his fraudulent tax reform scam, there is more than ample evidence that proves our Imbecilic leader did indeed obstruct Justice, still waiting for the evidence to back up all of Trump’s bogus claims and lies, how we are reminded on a daily basis that Trump has serious cognitive deficits and is unable to control his delusional mind, preparing for a major meltdown as our fake president’s fake news comes roaring back to bite his big Orange ass despite trying to blame Hillary Clinton, Mueller indictments make you wonder why our lackluster lame duck leader hired the people he did while campaigning, our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator almost has enough rope to hang himself as his Russia scandal engulfs him, it turns out our illegitimate president is a bigger war criminal than his predecessor and much more.

Lawmakers Want to Forbid Trump From Launching Unauthorized Preemptive Strike Against North Korea article from Common Dreams. –
https://www.commondreams.org/news/2017/10/27/lawmakers-want-forbid-trump-launching-unauthorized-preemptive-strike-against-north

Allowing a psychopath with diminished mental capacities to be in charge of America’s nuclear weapons is a really bad idea:

“With diplomacy between Washington and Pyongynag on its “last legs” and President Donald Trump continuing to ratchet up tensions, scores of U.S. lawmakers just introduced legislation to prevent him from launching a pre-emptive strike against North Korea.

Denouncing Trump’s “reckless” conduct, Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, explained why many feel the president needs to held in check. “During the campaign,” he said, “people feared a President Trump with the power to initiate a nuclear conflict—less than a year later, those fears are far too close to being realized.”

Conyers was joined by fellow Democrat Sen. Edward Markey of Massachusetts in sponsoring the bicameral legislation (pdf), called the “No Unconstitutional Strike Against North Korea Act of 2017,” which was introduced Thursday. Among the 61 co-sponsors are two Republicans—Reps. Thomas Massie of Kentucky and Walter Jones of North Carolina.

The legislation states: “The American people, America’s allies in Asia, and the entire world have been deeply troubled by escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula.” It calls for no Pentagon or other federal agency funds to be used to launch a first strike against North Korea unless Congress has given approval…”

We begin today’s misadventures of our illegitimate popular vote losing president with his meltdown over how he’s being treated by the media and the majority that didn’t ‘elect’ him over his un-Presidential – still incapable of acting Presidential after 7 months – responses to a natural disaster and his support of neo-Nazis and White Supremacists, our dimwitted dip shit’s Twitter tirades designed to distract from his gross incompetence and crimes begin again as he shamelessly smears Comey while his Russia scandal hits closer to home, Trump’s dubious claims of being wiretapped by President Obama remains unfounded – just more malicious lies fabricated by our illegitimate idiot in the White House, still struggling to show empathy to Hurricane Harvey victims as the real reason he fired Comey comes to light, details on Trump’s fraudulent tax reform scam aimed at screwing the Middle Class while further enriching corrupt billionaires and corporations revealed and much more.

‘Disappointed’ and ‘Let Down,’ Disaffected Trump Voters Voice Their Dismay article from Alternet. –

Many of our demented delinquent’s minions are beginning to realize that Trump has conned and lied to them:

“WASHINGTON — With each crisis of the young Trump administration, reporters and pollsters have documented the steady support he continues to get from his most ardent backers, the roughly one in four Americans who consistently tell pollsters that they approve of his performance in office, agree with him on most issues and like his personality.

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.

“He has got to be his own worst enemy,” said Tony Sciullo, a lifelong Pittsburgh resident and a registered independent who works for an insurance agency and described Trump as an “abject disappointment.”…”

HAS TRUMP FINALLY ENTERED THE DEATH SPIRAL? article from Vanity Fair. –
http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/07/has-donald-trump-finally-entered-the-death-spiral

America’s worst-ever president’s actions – acting less presidential and breaking more rules – indicate that he is guilty and will soon be going down:

“For those who believed that the White House’s main problem was too many adults in the room, the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci is welcome news. Sean Spicer has resigned in protest, with little to show for his time other than sartorial upgrades. In brief, a role that normally goes to people with decades of experience in communications and government will go to a neophyte from Wall Street whose main qualification seems to be that he’s loyal to Donald Trump on cable TV and high-energy. As Scaramucci once told New York Magazine, “My middle name could be Shit-stirrer, except then my initials on my shirt would be A.S.S., and I can’t have that.” The phrase “death spiral” is starting to come to mind.

To be sure, you could argue that we’ve been here before. When Steve Bannon took over Trump’s campaign, conservative radio host Charlie Sykes compared it to entering a hospice phase with Trump wishing his campaign to die surrounded by loved ones. And we know how that turned out. So you could say that Trump is nothing but surprises. But Trump is also highly predictable. He promised repeatedly during the campaign that he could be presidential. But by early 2016 it was clear that he couldn’t, that no change would ever come. Chaos was going to be the norm. The question was always whether that chaos was controlled or not. More and more, “not” looks like the answer. Increasingly, Trump looks like Slim Pickens riding down with the missile, on the cusp of the final, sudden acceleration.

Trump appears to trust none of his staffers at this point, apart from close family, and that family gives dubious advice. Recall that son-in-law Jared Kushner was among those pressing for Trump to fire James Comey, while Bannon was among those counseling restraint. Following Kushner’s advice led Trump right into a prolonged date with Robert Mueller. This time, opposing the decision to hire Scaramucci were Spicer, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, and Bannon. Supporting it was, yes, Kushner, Ivanka Trump, and—according to reports—Hope Hicks.

If Trump insists on disregarding sound advice from his staffers in favor of dumb advice from family, his decisions will get worse, not that they were great to begin with, and more and more people will leave the White House only to be replaced by less competent hires. While the lure of the White House is huge and someone will always say yes to a job there, the quality of newcomers is going to plummet. People see how poorly Trump treats his hires. (This wasn’t so clear back when Trump was in the private sector, and employees had to sign onerous non-disclosure agreements.) When they displease him, he lets it be known in public. This week, he even told The New York Times that he regretted making Jeff Sessions attorney general…”

The Kremlin’s Investment in Trump Is Paying Off article from The Atlantic. –
https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/06/trump-putin-russia/531420/

Since taking office our illegitimate national embarrassment has shown himself to be a pro-Russian puppet:

“Fifty-four years ago this month, former President John F. Kennedy delivered the “Strategy of Peace,” a powerful address that captured America’s indispensable leadership at the height of the Cold War. Kennedy knew that our country could not guard against the Soviet Union alone, for he believed that “genuine peace must be the product of many nations, the sum of many acts.”

Incredibly, the man who now leads the United States seems to find himself locked in an alarming and perilous embrace with the Russian government. These ties threaten to weaken a system of alliances that have held Russia—and countless other threats to the international community—at bay since the conclusion of the Second World War.

In his Senate testimony two weeks ago, former FBI Director James Comey affirmed a disturbing suspicion: that Donald Trump first undermined Comey, by leaning on him to drop his investigation of former National Security-Adviser Michael Flynn, and then removed him from his post. Since then, events have escalated at a dizzying pace: Trump accused Comey of lying under oath about their interactions earlier this year, even as he cheered Comey’s public assertion that the president wasn’t under FBI investigation. Soon, reports emerged that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating obstruction-of-justice allegations against the president—revelations Trump was none too happy about. And all the while, rumors have continued to swirl that Trump may fire both Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who’s overseeing the special counsel inquiry.

But Trump’s reckless handling of these events should not distract from a startling reality: As the president faces accusations of colluding with the Russians during last year’s campaign, his policies in office have aligned almost perfectly with the Kremlin’s goals. If Moscow wanted its interference in America’s election to yield dividends, it could hardly have hoped for more…”

The anti-innovation presidency article from Politico. –
http://www.politico.com/agenda/story/2017/06/23/the-anti-innovation-president-000464

Having no policies and no mandate is causing issues for our impotent leader:

““Innovation” is one of those Washington priorities, like “security” or “the children,” that politicians in both parties tend to describe as investments rather than spending. Even as budget wars have raged on Capitol Hill, there’s been a fairly broad consensus that funding research and development is vital to American competitiveness. The Beltway seems to churn out an inexhaustible supply of bipartisan reports proclaiming that bigger government investments in science and technology today will pay economic dividends for taxpayers down the road.

This week has been “tech week” at the White House, and President Trump has jumped onto the rhetorical bandwagon, hailing the glories of innovation. “My administration is embracing a new spirit of innovation that will make life better for all Americans,” he told a group of technology leaders gathered in the Oval Office on Monday; he doubled down Thursday, promising another group of new-economy executives that his government would “help unleash technological breakthroughs that will transform our lives.”

But Trump’s 2018 budget goes the opposite direction: It proposes the deepest cuts in innovation investments that any administration has ever proposed.

Not only does the Trump budget slash climate science and clean energy research beloved by Trump’s critics, it whacks advanced manufacturing programs and fossil energy research catering to Trump’s supporters, as well as basic science and medical research beloved by almost everyone. It’s a powerful rejection of the innovation-industrial complex, and even though Congress is likely to ignore most of it, a similarly powerful reflection of Trump’s political war on Washington elites…”

Groveling Before the Mad King: Donald Trump’s Cabinet of Sycophants article from AlterNet. –
http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/donald-trumps-cabinet-sycophants

On the Nazi-esque cabinet meeting our wannabe dictator recently held:

“On Monday, June 12, the 143rd day of his presidency, Donald Trump convened his first meeting with all his Cabinet members. As they sat in the West Wing of the White House, Trump first complimented himself before asking them to praise his accomplishments as president.

Trump’s Cabinet members dutifully responded, one by one. But White House chief of staff Reince Priebus’ groveling was perhaps the most pathetic: “On behalf of the entire senior staff around you, Mr. President, we thank you for the opportunity and the blessing you’ve given us to serve your agenda and the American people. And we’re continuing to work every day to accomplish those goals.”

This is not funny. This is not normal.

Trump is vainglorious, a personality trait that can be compelling for a character in a Shakespearean tragedy or a Greek play, but disastrous when channeled by the leader of a country.

Trump’s actions on Monday are but one more reminder that he is a plutocratic authoritarian with no regard or respect for basic norms of democracy or human decency. He leads a cult of personality whose members will not abandon him; he is backed by a political party that worships power and will abandon American democracy in order to advance its goals…”

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…”

Trump stopped from firing Mueller after he learned special counsel if friends with Comey: report article from The Raw Story. –
http://www.rawstory.com/2017/06/trump-stopped-from-firing-mueller-after-learning-special-counsel-is-friends-with-comey-report/

Never mind the fact that the president can’t fire the special counsel – in this case it would be suicide for Trump:

“According to a report in the New York Times, President Donald Trump had already planned to fire Robert Mueller after he learned the special counsel is friends with fired FBI Director James Comey.

The report stated that Trump was angered when he learned of the relationship and made plans to dump Mueller before being convinced it would be a disastrous move.

Sources say Trump that was telling staff, visitors and advisers last week that he felt Mueller had become part of a “witch hunt’ against him and wanted him gone.

Trump reportedly became aware of the longtime relationship between Mueller and Comey after being alerted to reports on Breitbart News and other conservative media outlets…”

Donald Trump’s state visit to Britain put on hold article from The Guardian. –
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jun/11/donald-trump-state-visit-to-britain-put-on-hold

Seems our Loser-in-Chief is starting to realize how unpopular he really is:

“Donald Trump has told Theresa May in a phone call he does not want to go ahead with a state visit to Britain until the British public supports him coming.

The US president said he did not want to come if there were large-scale protests and his remarks in effect put the visit on hold for some time.

The call was made in recent weeks, according to a Downing Street adviser who was in the room. The statement surprised May, according to those present.

The conversation in part explains why there has been little public discussion about a visit.

May invited Trump to Britain seven days after his inauguration when she became the first foreign leader to visit him in the White House. She told a joint press conference she had extended an invitation from the Queen to Trump and his wife Melania to make a state visit later in the year and was “delighted that the president has accepted that invitation”….”
