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 minority-elect President with him whining about the possibility of his finances being looked at in his growing Russia scandal, mounting evidence that Trump and his duplicitous cabal have been colluding with Russia for quite some time, abdicating his presidential duties, America’s worst-ever president reveals yet again in another interview why he has no business being in the White House and is incapable of being presidential, our delusional delinquent is quickly creating more quagmires to drown himself in, results of millions of people standing up to the corruption that is today’s politics and our illegitimate president who continues making America worse again, the irony of Trump’s ‘Made in America’ Week as his second White House requests more foreign workers and lots more.

One has to seriously wonder if Trump is actually that stupid or if he gets his misinformation from close advisers…

Childish Rants or Putin-Style Propaganda? article from Mother Jones. –
Our Loser-in-Chief is taking a page out of a Russian Propaganda handbook on deflecting and trying to flip the discussion to an opponent – making it appear even more that he and the miscreants he calls an administration have been working together with Russia for quite some time:
“President Donald Trump does not directly answer questions about his campaign’s or administration’s interactions with Russian officials. He deflects, pointing at his opponents. (That is, when he’s not outright denying the connections even exist.)
“Look what Hillary Clinton may have gotten away with. Disgraceful!” the president tweeted as his son came under fire for meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer during the 2016 presidential campaign with the explicit hope of obtaining negative information about the Democratic candidate. The president also complained on Twitter, “Why is that Hillary Clintons [sic] family and Dems dealings with Russia are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?”
It may sound like a defensive child’s playground cry—“Look at what she did!”—but it also echoes a traditional Russian propaganda strategy called “whataboutism,” a diversionary tactic that sidesteps criticism by arguing “What about them?” or “See what my opponent did!”
The technique was widely used by the Soviet Union during the Cold War in battles with the United States for moral superiority in areas of human rights, says Dmitry Dubrovsky, a Russian scholar at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. For example, when the Soviet Union was criticized for actions like the imprisonment of dissidents, officials’ response would be along the lines of, “What about apartheid?” The whataboutism strategy has made a comeback and evolved in President Vladimir Putin’s Russia. The Kremlin is no longer arguing about who’s morally superior, Dubrovsky says; now it’s arguing that the morals underlying democratic ideals don’t exist at all…”
