Misadventures of a minority-elect President 107

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, minority-elect President’s son-in-law – and senior adviser – is becoming a massive headache as calls of treason start resonating through Washington, how Trump is torturing Capitol Hill, the joke that is our national embarrassment’s presidency and its death spiral, a lot of the miscreants associated with Trump have ties to Russia, the irony of Trump paying lip service to U.S. Veterans after his previous history of slandering them, Trump’s crash course on how not to win at diplomacy, when all else fails to deflect blame for your malfeasance create a conspiracy theory and hope they buy it, Trump has a thing for dictators and despots and more.
