Misadventures of a minority-elect President 181

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 illegitimate popular vote losing Twitter tyrant begins with yet another tantrum towards the Florida Representative that told the truth about Trump’s handling of Military deaths and lack of empathy that make him look even more stupid, why Trump’s presidency is and always will be such a massive failure, our dimwitted dip shit won’t be able to avoid taking responsibility when millions die to his sabotage of health insurance, Trump’s habit of speaking before thinking and his retardation of fact and truth sets the tone as his character trumps his attempt at celebrating character week, Trump’s dubious distractions covering up his even more dubious actions, how life in Trump’s land of delusion is much different than reality, how a flawed electoral system enabled the ‘election’ of our illegitimate president, the growing evidence of Trump’s obstruction of justice and a lot more.

Will Trump go down as the worst president in history? article from Newsweek on The Raw Story. –

Yes, as there is little doubt about that:

“Almost half of Americans polled believe Donald Trump will be remembered as one of the worst presidents in U.S. history.

According to a Marist poll released on Thursday, 42 percent believe Trump’s legacy will be as one of the country’s worst leaders, while 16 percent think he will be remembered as a below average president.

In contrast, 7 percent believe the Republican businessman will go down as one of the best leaders in U.S. history, while another 11 percent believe Trump will be remembered as an above average president and 19 percent believe he will be thought of as an average president.

Along party lines, the poll found 48 percent of Republicans believe Trump will be remembered as either one of the best presidents in history (22 percent) or an above-average leader (26 percent), while 70 percent of Democrats feel he will go down as among the worst of the country’s leaders…”

As uninsured rate starts to climb, Trump won’t avoid blame article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –

When scores of people die due to losing their insurance, our dimwitted dip shit won’t be able to avoid being responsible for it:

“In recent years, health care advocates had a trump card to play when asked if the Affordable Care Act was working: the uninsured rate had dropped to the lowest point on record.

There were all kinds of reasons to tackle health care reform, but at the core of the ACA was the goal of bringing health security to Americans who lacked it. And on this aspect of the debate, progressives have enjoyed the better hand: once “Obamacare” became law, the number of insured Americans improved, and kept improving throughout Barack Obama’s second term.

A new report on the uninsured rate, compiled by Gallup and Sharecare, suggests we’ve started to replace progress with regress.

The percentage of U.S. adults lacking health insurance rose in the third quarter of 2017 to 12.3%, up 0.6 percentage points from the previous quarter and 1.4 points since the end of 2016. The uninsured rate is now the highest recorded since the last quarter of 2014 when it was 12.9%…”

How the White House’s Week Went Off the Rails article from The Atlantic. –

Very simple: as usual our lackluster lame duck president inserted foot before opening mouth and his usual retardation of facts and truth prevailed as his character trumped his character week:

“The week of October 15 was supposed to be set aside to reflect on character.

“We celebrate National Character Counts Week because few things are more important than cultivating strong character in all our citizens, especially our young people,” President Trump said in declaring it. “The grit and integrity of our people, visible throughout our history, defines the soul of our Nation. This week, we reflect on the character of determination, resolve, and honor that makes us proud to be American.”

There hasn’t been much time to talk about character. Instead, politics this week has been dominated by a peculiar scandal, beginning with one off-base remark from the president on Monday, that has managed to somehow leave everyone it touches worse off than they were at the start of the week—including the president, his chief of staff and spokeswoman, a member of Congress, and the family of a Special Forces soldier killed in Niger earlier this month.

The mess began on Monday, when Trump hastily called a press conference at the White House. The president made several noteworthy statements, some of them deeply dubious, but the one that grabbed the most attention was his unusual response to a question about the deaths of four U.S. soldiers in Niger in early October, about which the White House had been strangely quiet. For whatever reason, Trump took that as a personal attack on how effectively he had offered condolences to the families—not an attack that anyone had made, though one about which, as the next few days would show, Trump had reason to be defensive. Trump made two statements: First, that he had tried to call the family of every servicemember killed on his watch, and second, that previous presidents had not been so generous in their consolations…”

5 things Trump did this week while you weren’t looking article from Politico. –

Under cover from his moronic distractions, our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator is working hard to destroy America and Democracy:

“With the House out on recess and the Senate working on its budget resolution, Republicans hoped the week would be focused on tax reform. Instead the news turned into a weeklong fight about a condolence call between President Donald Trump and the widow of Army Sgt. La David Johnson, with the president’s intensifying feuds with GOP Sens. John McCain and Bob Corker as a sideshow.

Beneath the high-profile disputes, though, the Trump administration made some major—and, in some cases, surprising—policy changes: It withdrew a rule protecting small farmers, declined a chance to call China a currency manipulator, and perhaps most surprisingly strengthened Obamacare’s individual mandate. Here’s how Trump changed policy this week:

1. USDA withdraws a protection for small farmers
It took years of pressure and a monologue from John Oliver, but on December 20 last year, the USDA’s Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration issued a final rule—known as the GIPSA rule—that would make it easier for small contract farmers, like chicken growers, to sue meat-packing or processing companies that engage in anticompetitive practices.

The Obama administration’s move was a long-awaited victory for small farmers, who had been arguing for years that larger producers were dictating unfair prices to farmers and retaliating against them if they spoke out—and the bar for proving illegal activity was too high. But their win, it turns out, was short-lived: After delaying the rule’s effective date in February, the Trump administration announced this week that it will withdraw it altogether. GIPSA also abandoned a proposed rule, also issued last December, aimed at protecting chicken growers from unfair or predatory practices by large producers. Industry groups and many GOP lawmakers applauded the moves, arguing that the rules would have increased litigation costs and raised prices for consumers, while small farmer groups and Democrats slammed the changes. Sen. Chuck Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, was a rare GOP voice of dissent. “They’re just pandering to big corporations,” he said….”

More on the White House Clean Up Operation article from Talking Points Memo. –

The White House knew Trump was lying and will not be able to cover his ass:

“I noted yesterday this great piece of reporting by Roll Call which essentially showed that the White House knew the President was lying from beginning about his claims about calling bereaved families. They then scrambled to get names and contact information from the Pentagon to retroactively make the President’s claims ‘true’ as soon as possible.

Now we have some good follow-on reporting from The Atlantic, showing how the White House started express shipping condolence letters as the crazy week of lies, disgrace and nonsense unfolded.

Reporters for The Atlantic spoke to multiple families who received expressed-shipped UPS packages from the White House on October 20th (Friday), which had been shipped on the 18th.

One passage …

“Honestly, I feel the letter is reactionary to the media storm brewing over how these things have been handled,” Eckels told The Atlantic. “I’ve received letters from McCain, Mattis and countless other officials before his. I wasn’t sure if the fact that the accident that caused Timothy’s death has still yet to officially have the cause determined played into the timing of our president’s response.”…”

45*: The president who shouldn’t be article from Salon. –

A fatally flawed electoral system enabled the ‘election’ of our illegitimate popular vote losing president with no mandate:

“What is an asterisk?

It is a reference mark that is used in writing to call attention to its subject. The asterisk signals to the reader that something is wrong or missing. The asterisk also indicates that perhaps one of these things is not like the other. In many ways the asterisk is the ultimate disclaimer. Ultimately, the asterisk usually means that something is an exception — and that exception is not usually a good one.

In sports an asterisk is often used — either literally in print or symbolically in the minds of fans — to indicate that a given person’s or team’s achievements are questionable, a “special case, “or somehow in doubt. Baseball has several such examples. Roger Maris broke Babe Ruth’s long-standing single-season home run record but played a longer season. Mark McGwire is in the Baseball Hall of Fame but has publicly admitted to using steroids. Barry Bonds broke both their records and Hank Aaron’s all-time home run record, but his achievement was tainted by allegations that he too had used performance-enhancing drugs. Other sports — yes, even bowling — have wielded the power of the asterisk as well.

Could the asterisk be applied in American politics? Consider the case of Donald Trump…”

UNPRESIDENTED – A Complete Breakdown Of Donald Trump’s 39th Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt. –

Each passing week for our numb nutted nimrod in the White House proves more disastrous than the last:

“America is waging a war with itself. I’m not talking about Steve Bannon’s “war on the GOP establishment” or the war between red-America and blue-America. I’m talking about the never-ending war over the American psyche.

At the center of this war is the very clear choice between common decency or moral degeneration. Between human rights or authoritarianism. Intelligence or idiocy. Truth or deception. And the chief war monger is Donald Trump, relentlessly prodding his tiny finger at the worst impulses within American society. In this manner, the week was no different than the previous 38.

One of this week’s most disconcerting revelations was that Chief of Staff John Kelly isn’t the man we hoped he could be. Rather than seizing the opportunity to be a necessary sanity check on the President, Kelly has merely provided structure from which Trump can more effectively execute his insanity.

At the forefront of this week’s exhausting discourse was a cruel condolence call from the President and a slandering lie from the Chief of Staff…”
