Misadventures of a minority-elect President 144

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 popular vote losing Troll-in-Chief begins this segment of his misadventures by releasing the personal information of thousands who wrote in to oppose his fraudulent voter fraud commission’s recent illegal request for their information from every state, Trump’s playbook of how to distract from his growing list of crimes and scandals – Tweet, deny, dismiss – published, our demented delinquent has been lying about his Russia ties this whole time as his Russia scandal continues expanding rapidly, America’s worst-ever President has another massive conflict of interest scandal brewing, our Loser-in-Chief’s Ministry of Propaganda is losing the war on defending Trump Jr.’s illegal actions as our Liar-in-Chief’s popularity hits new lows, our impotent leader still lying about his fraudulent healthcare tax giveaway bill, the importance of recognizing trauma caused by Trump, dealing with it and fighting back, our War Criminal-in-Chief is on a role, our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator trying to mainstream ‘collusion is normal’ defense to justify his treason and much more.

It appears illegally requesting voter information from every state wasn’t enough for our Troll-in-Chief’s fraudulent ‘voter integrity’ commission since they went with publishing the names and other personal information of those who wrote in opposing their fraudulent scam.

Donald Trump Jr. paid attorney with funds form his father’s re-election campaign: report article from Salon. –
http://www.salon.com/2017/07/15/donald-trump-jr-paid-attorney-with-funds-from-his-fathers-re-election-campaign-report/

Apparently trying to collude with Russia wasn’t enough for our dimwitted dip shit’s son:

“If you’ve donated to President Donald Trump’s campaign to re-elect, there’s a chance those funds have been used to pay for the first family’s legal defense team. Federal Election Commission records show that the president’s re-election campaign made a $50,000 payment last month to the attorney representing Donald Trump Jr., Reuters reported Saturday.

The payment came almost two weeks before Trump Jr. revealed that he met with a Russian lawyer in order to discuss damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

The payment, dated June 27, was made to the Law Offices of Alan Futerfas, according to Reuters, and was disclosed in the most recent filing with the Federal Election Commission. “Legal consulting” was the purported reasoning for the payment.

Futerfas was announced as Trump Jr.’s lawyer earlier this week after The New York Times first reported the shady encounter between Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. Four other individuals reportedly attended the meeting…”

We begin today’s misadventures of our illegitimate, minority-elect president with his war on the press that is actually a war on the truth – his biggest enemy – on his quest to become America’s first dictator, Syrian civilian deaths rocketing as our War Criminal-in-Chief commits more war crimes there under the dubious guise of fighting terrorism while his plans to invade Iran unfold, our Loser-in-Chief tweets more lies about his fraudulent healthcare tax giveaway bill, the miscreants supporting our national embarrassment’s fraudulent health care tax giveaway are lying their asses off about it – and failing miserably, Trump’s Syrian gas attack false flag exposed in all its ignorant glory, Trump’s fraudulent Voter Integrity Commission laying the ground work to screw Americans out of future elections and much more.

How unpopular is Donald Trump? Latest presidential approval ratings article from AL. –
http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2017/06/how_unpopular_is_donald_trump.html

At 35 percent, very unpopular:

“Amid squabbles with CNN and Congressional Democrats, President Donald Trump faces another foe – dismally low approval ratings.

The latest daily tracker from Gallup shows 39 percent of those responding to the poll approve of the job the president is doing as compared to 56 percent who do not. The 39 percent approval rating is an improvement for Trump, whose numbers dipped to 36 percent earlier this week following reports that millions could lose health insurance under the Senate’s Obamacare replacement plan.

In comparison, President Barack Obama’s approval ratings during the summer of his first term were around 60 percent.

Trump’s lowest approval rating of his presidency – 35 percent – came on March 28…”

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 illegitimate, popular vote losing President begins today’s misadventures with further threats of producing another false flag Syrian chemical weapons attack, more evidence that our Loser-in-Chief has no mandate as his popularity continues to plummet and his entire duplicitous agenda comes to a screeching halt, our Ignoramus-in-Chief’s incorrigible incompetence is about to have real world consequences, Pro-Trump Super PAC’s are trying their best to make our national embarrassment look good – and it’s going to fail miserably, our illegitimate President is fighting a war with the Press that he won’t win and much more.

Trump Fails To Reach Beyond Base, As Independents’ Disapproval Grows article from NPR. –
http://www.npr.org/2017/06/28/534602973/trump-fails-to-reach-beyond-base-as-independents-disapproval-grows

More evidence Trump has no mandate as his popularity continues to plummet:

“President Trump’s support has eroded with independent voters since he took office. Though he still clings to a loyal base of supporters, his overall disapproval among Americans has reached record highs, according to a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll.

Just 37 percent of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing just over five months into his tenure, while 51 percent disapprove. Forty percent of those polled strongly disapprove of Trump’s performance, twice the 20 percent who strongly approved.

The most pronounced swing the poll found was among independents. Over the past four months, their approval of the president has dissipated. In February, 40 percent of independents said they approved of the job Trump was doing, with 51 percent disapproving. Four months later in June, just 31 percent say they approve of the president with 59 percent of independents disapproving — a 17 point net-negative drop.

Despite almost full employment nationwide, independents are particularly dissatisfied with Trump on the economy. That’s likely driving much of their overall disapproval. Just 31 percent of independents say they have confidence in Trump’s ability to improve the U.S. economy, while 49 percent doubt he can do so. Just three months ago, 44 percent thought Trump could turn around the economy, while 38 percent didn’t — a whiplash-worthy 24-point swing…”

Our popular vote losing President’s misadventures begin today with questions of an actual investigation into his malfeasance despite mounting evidence that he obstructed justice, trying to take out Syria’s President Assad while backing ISIS belies our War Criminal-in-Chief’s claims of fighting terror, why our Loser-in-Chief’s profound ignorance and corruption are so dangerous, the lies keep coming from our Ignoramus-in-Chief, Fox faux news still acting as our Liar-in-Chief’s Ministry of Propaganda, poor people are only good for one thing – their votes – to Trump who, it turns out, can’t handle not having a mandate and losing all legitimacy, growing dangers of Trump’s Syrian War Crimes, how to fight back against the fraudulent atrocity called Trumpcare and a lot 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…”

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 minority-elect President begin with the real scandals being ignored by corporate media’s obsession over our demented leader, the list of Syrian war crimes committed by Trump is growing, our Con Artist-in-Chief lied about reducing drug prices and is preparing an ‘Executive Order’ that appears to be penned by Big Pharma, our national embarrassment’s infrastructure initiative scam is failing – as is everything else he does, miscreants in our Loser-in-Chief’s White House are still deflecting important questions, our dimwitted dip shit’s lasting legacy taking shape as his net worth and popularity are sinking, now we know why the Senate kept their version of Trumpcare secret – it’s deplorable, Trump lied about having tapes of Comey – who wasn’t the only one Trump attempted to obstruct justice with, why our wannabe dictator’s attempts at authoritarianism are going to fail and much more.

The very shady way that Donald Trump’s new lawyer got very, very rich article from Think Progress. –
https://thinkprogress.org/donald-trump-of-lawyers-722308f007a4

In order to work for a fraud you apparently need to be a fraud:

“Donald Trump’s new lawyer is the Donald Trump of lawyers.

On paper, Donald Trump is a lawyer’s dream client. Deep pockets. A seemingly never-ending stream of legal problems. And a high-profile that can transform his confidants into minor celebrities.

Trump’s the kind of client that could pay off a lawyer’s mortgage, put their children through college, buy them a sexy sports car, and leave them with enough attorney’s fees left over to pay for a vacation home.

And yet Trump’s struggled to find counsel to represent him in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation into the Trump campaign’s Russia ties. As one lawyer told Yahoo News’ Michael Isikoff, “the guy won’t pay and he won’t listen.” Trump’s reputation as a blowhard who doesn’t pay his bills and won’t stop sending damaging tweets reportedly left many of Washington’s best lawyers unwilling to represent the President of the United States…”

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 minority-elect presidential mishaps begin with Trump’s yuge violation of the emoluments clause and reports of his being investigated for obstruction of justice, poll reveals that majority of voters trust Comey over Trump – and think Trump is lying, Trump’s Russia scandal games are going to backfire, for one brief moment Trump actually acted almost presidential, the delusions of our minority-elect President’s supporters trying to absolve him of blame for the shooting in DC and much more.

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…”

If Republicans lose the House, Trump will be impeached article from The Los Angeles Times. –
http://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-goldberg-impeach-trump-house-20170613-story.html

Trump’s brown shirts in Congress won’t be able to protect our popular vote losing president for much longer:

“The 1998 midterm election was a debacle for Republicans, particularly then-Speaker Newt Gingrich. Since Reconstruction, no president had seen his party gain seats in the House in a midterm election six years into his presidency. Gingrich, who made the election a referendum on impeaching President Clinton, resigned after the loss. Clearly the voters had sent the signal, “Don’t do it.”

The White House thought it had dodged a bullet. But one morning, over Thanksgiving break, then-White House Chief of Staff John Podesta was running in Washington’s Rock Creek Park when it hit him: GOP leaders are “not going to let their members off the hook. They’re going to beat and beat and beat on them until they vote for impeachment.”

It fell to Podesta to tell the still-celebrating White House staff that the midterms meant nothing, the push to impeach the president in the House was a runaway train that could not be derailed. “This thing is rigged,” Podesta announced at a Monday morning staff meeting. “We are going to lose.”

President Trump’s White House could use a John Podesta about now. Because no one seems to have told them that the Democrats are every bit as committed to impeaching Trump as the GOP was to impeaching Clinton. The difference, of course, is that the Democrats don’t control the House — yet…”

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.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-islam-saudi-arabia_us_59219acae4b03b485cb23040

While hypocritically defending his Muslim Ban at home:

“After repeatedly criticizing Barack Obama’s administration for its unwillingness to use the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism,” President Donald Trump followed in the footsteps of his predecessor on Sunday by condemning what he called the “crisis of Islamic extremism” during his first foreign trip in Saudi Arabia.

“This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations. This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it. This is a battle between good and evil,” Trump said in the birthplace of Islam, a religion he spoke of harshly before assuming the presidency.

“That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamic extremism and the Islamists and Islamic terror of all kinds,” he went on. “And it means standing together against the murder of innocent Muslims, the oppression of women, the persecution of Jews, and the slaughter of Christians.”

Trump spoke in Riyadh at the Arab Islamic American Summit, an annual event attended by the leaders of 50 Muslim-majority nations. While he referred to “Islamic terror” once in his remarks, the president spent the majority of the speech urging Arab countries to drive out extremists in their midst whom he called “barbaric criminals.”…”
