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 lame duck popular vote losing president with yet more proof that he has major issues with telling the truth as his lies about immigrants continue imploding, still catering to the minority of morons that support him instead of the overwhelming majority who oppose him and everything the GOP is busily trying to do, a closer look at the Trump’s idiocracy and his lacking mental capacities, America’s most corrupt president can’t understand why bribing foreign officials is illegal as he tries to blackmail Congress into paying for his duplicitous border wall, when your impotent leader is a sexual predator, case for impeaching the ignorant numb nut we call president for obstructing justice meticulously laid out, it appears that staffers in the White House really are running an adult day care center for their minority-elect leader – who continues providing us with facts confirming that he is indeed the perfect argument for birth control and so much more.

America’s worst-ever president lied – surprise, surprise – about all immigrants being hardcore criminals as in fact, very few are but that hasn’t stopped Trump’s racist crackdown on people whose skin is a different color.

Being unpredictable serves as the perfect distraction from all his crimes and his failed presidency.
Trump is the most powerless president in American history article from Salon. –
Abusing the power of his office allows our national embarrassment to believe he’s important while his list of broken promises continue piling up:
“Let’s begin with the war in Afghanistan — because it’s a war, and American soldiers are dying over there; because according to the Congressional Research Service, it costs the American taxpayer $3.9 million to keep one American soldier over there for one year; because according to the Cost of War Project at Brown University, our presence in Afghanistan has cost us $2 trillion over 16 years. Think of it. Two trillion dollars. That would have provided 38 years of funding for the Department of Education, 36 years of funding for the State Department, and 148 years of funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which covers 9 million underprivileged children, the funding for which Congress just let lapse. By any measure you can think of, we have spent a staggering amount of money over the 16 years we have been there. Which is at least part of the reason Donald J. Trump, as a private citizen and as a candidate for president, repeatedly said he wanted to get us out of Afghanistan.
Back in 2013, Trump went on what we would now call a tweet storm over the war in Afghanistan, perhaps road-testing what would become his policy of putting “America first.” “We should leave Afghanistan immediately. No more wasted lives. If we have to go back in, we go in hard & quick. Rebuild the US first,” he tweeted. Later, he tweeted: “Let’s get out of Afghanistan. Our troops are being killed by the Afghanis we train and we waste billions there. Nonsense! Rebuild the USA.”
Two years later, as a candidate for president in October of 2015, Trump told CNN’s New Day program: “We made a terrible mistake getting involved there in the first place. We had real brilliant thinkers that didn’t know what the hell they were doing. And it’s a mess. It’s a mess. And at this point, you probably have to (stay) because that thing will collapse about two seconds after they leave. Just as I said that Iraq was going to collapse after we leave.”
Two more years have passed, and Trump is now the president of the United States, and what did he do back in mid-August? Did he announce a new trillion-dollar infrastructure plan that would “rebuild the USA” with projects to repair roads and bridges and put “world class” airports where we now have “third world” airports? No, what he did was announce that he would be sending 4,000 more troops to Afghanistan in a kind of mini-surge, adding to the approximately 8,400 we already have over there. He announced the troop increase in order to accomplish “obliterating ISIS, crushing al-Qaida, preventing the Taliban from taking over Afghanistan and stopping mass terror attacks against America before they emerge,” goals pretty much indistinguishable from those of his predecessors, Presidents Obama and Bush, whose Afghanistan policies he was criticizing in his tweets and statements on the campaign trail last year…”

The fact that Trump is not now nor will he ever be presidential, let alone legitimate, extolls a heavy emotional price on America and the rest of the world.
