Misadventures of a minority-elect President 138

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:

We begin today’s misadventures of our popular vote losing president with his supporters not knowing what the Declaration of Independence is and accusing NPR of inciting violence and revolution, our national embarrassment’s top aides are worried about what Trump will tell Putin, most states balking at Trump’s voter suppression agenda, the amount of time wasted following our Twitter tyrant’s war on media and the truth is ridiculous, Donald Trump Jr. proves that ignorance is an inherent family trait, the crybaby in the White House, how ‘winning’ for our incompetent imbecile is bad for his voters and the remaining majority of us and a lot more.

Donald Trump is kicking off his second foreign tour as President today – he better prepare himself for the reception article from The Independent. –

Hoping Trump’s second foreign trip goes better than his first one:

“Donald Trump begins his second foreign foray as US President today with a stop-off in Poland before heading to the G20 summit in Germany on Friday. Trump’s trip comes at a time of troubles for him, internationally, with publics in many countries already having less confidence in him than George W Bush at the height of his own travails as president.

Given Trump’s unpopularity is particularly marked in Western Europe, it is no coincidence that he has decided to make a Polish stop-off where Washington recently deployed hundreds of troops. The country’s government, run by the conservative, Eurosceptic Law and Justice Party, has been much more welcoming of Trump than many other EU counterparts, and the country is one of only four NATO members other than the United States that spends the 2 per cent target of GDP on defence.

Examples of the Polish administration’s affinity with Trump include its opposition to immigration, support for burning coal, and scepticism of multilateral institutions. Right now, for instance, Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo finds herself in heated battles with the EU over her administration’s refusal to resettle refugees and migrants, and opposition to judicial changes that Brussels says will weaken the rule of law.

Recalling former US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld’s controversial division between so-called “Old Europe” in the west of the continent and “New Europe” in the east, Trump will also attend the Three Seas initiative. This is a conference in Wroclaw for leaders from 12 Central European, Baltic and Western Balkan states…”

The amount of time and resources wasted following Twitter tyrant’s war on media and the truth is ridiculous:

“Just when you think things can’t get any stupider, they do. On Sunday, President Trump tweeted out a gif of himself clotheslining someone, knocking him to the ground, and then pummeling him at an old WWE event. In the gif, the head of Trump’s victim has been replaced with the CNN logo, so Trump appears to be tackling and then beating the hell out of the network he most despises, the one he has best used as a foil in his rise to power. Trump’s CNN tweet followed on the heels of his tweets from last week, in which he attacked MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough in the most personal terms.

Trump supporters responded with unrestrained glee to much of this: Trump was fighting back! CNN, meanwhile, responded with its typical restraint and objectivity: Reporter after reporter declared that Trump’s tweet didn’t merely represent an obvious breach of decency, an unpresidential and apparently pathological outburst of spontaneous rage-tweeting; it promoted violence, and Trump would have blood on his hands if some rogue follower picked up a gun and decided to come after Brian Stelter. Trump supporters responded to this outpouring of faux rage from CNN by shouting about Kathy Griffin’s carrying around the bloodied mock-head of Trump, Julius Caesar presented by Shakespeare in the Park as an assassination of Trump, and Democrats from coast to coast who have proclaimed that Trumpcare would end with grandma being shoved off a cliff by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

In this kabuki theater, both sides are right and both sides are wrong…”

The Crybaby in the White House article from Counter Punch. –

Our impotent leader is making his own life hell:

“How long has it been? Barely more than five months and few cannot admit to themselves that the man who claims to be President of the United States is not old enough to hold that office. A child, a bully, a self-centered little boy still being potty-trained, with a six-year-old’s vocabulary, sophistication, and worldview in the body of a seventy-one-year-old man. That’s who we have holding the most demanding position in the world. We ought to be frightened to death, unable to sleep, worried that he’ll strike out and do something absolutely cataclysmic (like attack North Korea and kill hundreds of thousands of people in the process). Or turning the environment against us so quickly that millions of people will be standing in water. Or—most likely of all with a government bureaucracy so understaffed and inexperienced—should there be a rare virus outbreak, or a major earthquake in California, or any number of other unanticipated events, that there’ll be no one in this administration capable of assisting the victims.

The fact is that in Donald Trump’s world, we’re all on our own. And because his understanding of that world is like a six-year-old’s, he can see nothing besides what takes attention away from him, let alone anticipate problems in the future. His child’s view of how things work is the result of one terrifying fact: Donald Trump does not read. Or, perhaps he cannot read, but there’s little difference. No leader of the world can remain totally uninformed about every issue threatening mankind without dire consequences down the road. Previous residents of the White House spent hours pouring over position papers, reading newspapers, actually reading books (sometimes even novels), but Donald Trump reads nothing because he assumes he knows everything. Remember when he said he had a secret plan to eliminate ISIS? He doesn’t even know what ISIS is because he’s read nothing about it. Or look at what he’s said recently about Trumpcare, without reading any of the proposals. Ditto space and Black History. All demonstrations of his massive ignorance.

A month ago, the lead article in Bloomberg Businessweek was about manufacturing jobs in the United States, a response to Trump’s view that if manufacturing comes back, the people he’s promised jobs to will suddenly be employed. The Bloomberg piece lays out very succinctly why an increase in manufacturing will not happen and those highly touted jobs will not materialize. But Donald Trump did not read the article nor did the people he’s surrounded himself with in the White House explain the analysis to him because they are afraid to contradict him. Thus, Trump’s simplistic understanding of manufacturing (no doubt based upon building something with Legos) will not change, nor will his understanding of anything change because he believes that whatever position he has is always right. Put more simply, Donald Trump will fail because he will not read anything besides PowerPoint summaries.

For all practical purposes, Donald Trump is illiterate. His six-year-old worldview is no different from any number of African dictators’ in the past who stumbled into office with three two or three years of missionary education. He has no understanding of anything, other than perceived threats to himself. Worse, like some of those African kleptomaniacs, he’s being influenced by the people he’s chosen to surround himself with. Does Betsy DeVos know anything about public education?. Does Scott Pruitt have any goals besides trashing the environment? Has Tom Price show any evidence of having understood the Hippocratic Oath? When you pick the worst of the worst to hold cabinet positions and then eliminate the steady, conscientious bureaucrats who make the system function, the future of the nation is compromised, trashed, without any possibility of prosperity—let alone making America great again…”

4 Times Trump Has Inspired Widespread Speculation About His Cognitive Decline article from AlterNet. –

Whether or not our demented delusionist’s disoriented actions are intentional doesn’t matter – it still makes the U.S. look bad:

“Donald Trump has spent more than 20 percent of his presidency at his golf resorts, and this past weekend was no exception.

After three days of hitting balls around at his club in Bedminster, New Jersey, the president finally decided to return to Washington, D.C. on Monday. Footage of Trump’s arrival shows him exiting Air Force One, then descending the stairs leading from the plane to the tarmac, where a limousine festooned with American flag awaits. But instead of climbing inside, Trump wanders off in a different direction, taking several steps off course before a Secret Service agent can corral him.

It’s an odd moment, one in which Trump briefly appears befuddled and out of sorts. The president’s confusion has only fueled further speculation about his cognitive decline. Holly Figueroa O’Reilly, one of the organizers of the March for Truth, wondered aloud whether or not Trump is “sundowning” in a tweet that went viral.

Sundowning, according to the Mayo Clinic, “refers to a state of confusion occurring in the late afternoon and spanning into the night…that may affect people with dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease.” Though numerous commentators have suggested Trump’s behaviors correlate with well-known dementia symptoms, he has not been publicly diagnosed with dementia or any other mental health conditions by a medical expert. Growing concerns about Trump’s mental state are speculative, and based on a pattern of potentially worrisome behavior…

MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ Ratings Soar Following Trump Attacks article from The Huffington Post. –

Life is good for a couple MSNBC recipients of Trump’s recent Twitter tantrum – his tirades have driven their ratings up:

“Trump lashed out at “Psycho Joe” and “low-I.Q. Crazy Mika.”

Viewership for MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” skyrocketed last week after President Donald Trump attacked the show’s hosts, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, in a series of offensive tweets.

On Friday, one day after Trump lashed out at “Psycho Joe” and “low-I.Q. Crazy Mika” and claimed Brzezinski “was bleeding badly from a face-lift,” the show averaged 1.66 million viewers, nearly 70 percent more than its usual audience of just under 1 million viewers, according to Nielsen ratings released Wednesday. It was the number one cable news program that morning, beating Fox News’ “Fox and Friends,” which usually claims the top spot.

Even after widespread criticism from lawmakers of both parties, Trump continued his feud with the “Morning Joe” hosts over several days. Scarborough and Brzezinski, who announced their engagement earlier this year, on Friday alleged that Trump tried to blackmail them with the threat that a negative tabloid story about their relationship would be published. Trump denied their claim in a subsequent tweet, which Scarborough said was “yet another lie.”…”
