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 malevolent minority-elect president begins with U.S. taxpayers footing the bill for his playing golf over Thanksgiving instead of working as the White House once again lies about its leader, how Trump’s war on net neutrality is a war on the truth, once again our fake president is crying fake news while recommending his ignorant minions follow fake news, more on Trump’s fraudulent tax reform scam and the damage that will be done to the majority to enrich corrupt billionaires and businesses, how Trump will never stop amazing you but will never surprise you, a look at our malicious misfit’s 44th disastrous week in office, America’s most unethical president’s ethics lawyer quits working for Trump, why corrupt Judges appointed by corrupt presidents should have term limits, our demented Orange dip shit still believes his predecessor’s birth certificate isn’t real, our Sexual Predator-in-Chief keeps calling out other alleged predators but ignoring his own deviancy and much more.

Trump Tells The Troops They’re Fighting For Tax Cuts For The Rich In Thanksgiving Message article from PoliticusUSA. –
Trump told the troops a lot of strange things during his illiterate speech to them, much of which was foolish gibberish, while yet again putting his incorrigible ignorance on full display.

Our demented delinquent’s desire to be a dictator who receives credit for everything despite doing nothing was on full display during his egregious message to our troops that are overseas.
Ending net neutrality is the atom bomb in Trump’s war on the truth article from The Philadelphia Inquirer. –
Removing net neutrality will make it harder for the truth to be seen by millions of people instead of the propaganda pushed by corporate media:
“It’s so fitting that the Trump administration announced what may prove to be its most democracy-altering decision yet — a push by the pro-Trump Federal Communications Commission to end so-called net neutrality on the internet — on the Tuesday afternoon flowing into Peak Thanksgiving. It was as if the government wanted an overfed nation overdosing on tryptophan and TV blowouts of the Dallas Cowboys to nap through the news that the giant corporations of Big Telecom are about to gain massive control over the information that Americans consume, until it is just too late for regular folks to rally opposition to the latest episode of “Big Brother: America” from our reality-show president. Simply put, Team Trump didn’t want the average American to have good information about what is fast becoming the defining feature of our 45th presidency: It doesn’t want the public to have good information.
The cloud of chaos emanating from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue these days makes it easy to lose the big picture. When the president of the United States is getting up before sunrise to Twitter-trash-talk a basketball dad (who, like most of Trump’s targets these days, just happens to be black) with an inane racist comparison to Don King, or arguing that it’s better in Alabama to vote “perv” than vote “Democrat,” while no actual legislation is getting passed, it’s easy to get lost in the hourly outrage cycle and view The Donald as an unhinged nut, his presidency in flames.
But behind the smoke and mirrors, Trump World is getting stuff done — bad stuff, like the gutting of many major regulations that once protected our environment, or the toxic police-state culture created by “taking the gloves off” ICE enforcement agents or your local cops, or installing regressive judges across the land. But the defining feature of Donald Trump’s presidency is its all-encompassing war on the truth. The tactic is the stream of lies that the president spews — sometimes dozens in a week. But the broader strategy is equally alarming: Trump hopes to extend and expand his reign of dishonesty by remaking the media landscape with fewer, diminished sources of valid facts, elevating the handful of outlets that worship our Dear Leader (Sinclair, Fox) while seeking to destroy the credibility and reputation of everyone else.
Trump’s big, bad idea is so universal it can embrace ideas that seem to be contradictions — until you look a little closer. How else to explain the fact that the FCC — controlled by a majority of pro-Trump commissioners — is, with its all-but-a-done-deal rollback of net neutrality, giving the gift of a lifetime to monster communication companies like Philadelphia-based Comcast, Verizon and AT&T. Yet at the same time Trump’s Justice Department seems to be taking an anti-big-business stance in opposing the planned merger of AT&T and Time-Warner without the spin-off of key assets like Time-Warner’s CNN, the bete noir of Trump’s rabid fan base…”

Trump recommends reading this insane website article from Think Progress. –
Once again our fake president is crying fake news while recommending his ignorant minions follow fake news:
“In a Saturday night tweet, Trump attacked CNN, saying the network’s international division “represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly.” A few minutes later, Trump tweeted an alternative: MagaPill.com.
Trump tweeted: “Wow, even I didn’t realize we did so much. Wish the Fake News would report! Thank you. https://twitter.com/magapill/status/934553287214489600 …”
The name MagaPill is a riff on “red pill,” a term popular with white nationalists and others on the far right. A metaphor based on a plot line from The Matrix, it refers to the process of normalizing extreme views. MagaPill is also active on Gab, a social network favored by white nationalist and banned from the Google app store violating its hate speech policy.
But while Trump presents MagaPill as the antidote to “fake news,” the site regularly traffics in unhinged conspiracy theories. Just a few hours before being endorsed by Trump, MagaPill posted a video from Liz Cronkin, a fringe figure best known for pushing the Pizzagate conspiracy. In the video, Cronkin claims there is a sex tape of Hillary Clinton with an underage girl on Anthony Weiner’s laptop…”

Trump labels himself ‘your favorie President’ while raging against media article from Yahoo! News. –
Once again our Liar-in-Chief is raging against media painting him in a bad light – which is always inevitably his own fault – while trying to praise the multitude of non-existent accomplishments in his land of delusion:
“Fresh off Thanksgiving weekend, President Trump referred to himself as “your favorite President” while returning to one of his favorite pastimes — upbraiding the news media.
On Monday morning, the president called for an undefined “contest” to determine which TV network covers him most unfairly. He tweeted that the winner of this hypothetical contest could be awarded a trophy for “fake news.” He said CNN, the cable-news channel he complains the most about, should be included in the mix.
Our Twitter tyrant tweeted: “We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me). They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!”
Trump is only 10 months into his tenure and is unlikely to be most Americans’ favorite president at this point. And polls indicate that more Americans disapprove than approve of his job performance…”

Trump Is Making Himself A One Term President Through Disorganized Chaos article from PoliticusUSA. –
Actually it will be amazing if Trump even lasts through his first term:
“Trump and the Republicans have no clue what they are going to do after tax reform. There is nothing in the pipeline as chaos and dysfunction have gripped the federal government.
Politico reported, “Over the course of conversations with nearly a dozen senior aides in the White House and on Capitol Hill, a range of possibilities surfaced, from welfare reform to the infrastructure program Trump touted on the campaign trail to revisiting Obamacare repeal – an effort that has twice frustrated the Trump administration. The looming vacuum in the Republican agenda underscores how the relative chaos and disorganization of the Trump White House can affect policymaking across Washington. Former administration officials say the situation is virtually unprecedented, and that it is threatening the president’s ability to score legislative victories for the GOP heading into next year’s midterm elections. It may also cost Trump personally once the 2020 re-election campaign begins in earnest about a year from now.”
The Republicans have no agenda, and it turns out that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell aren’t the policymaking geniuses they thought they were. During the campaign, Republicans promised that they would guide Trump through the policymaking process. They told the country not to worry that Trump knows nothing. Republicans in Congress thought that they would set the agenda, and Trump would be their rubber stamp.
The reality has been that the same dysfunction that crippled congressional Republicans during the Obama years has grown tenfold. The House and Senate are paralyzed by their own infighting, and Trump’s bomb-throwing against his own Congress…”

Trump’s ethics lawyer exits the White House article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
The most unethical – America’s most corrupt-ever – president’s ethics lawyer exits the White House because of who he was representing:
“I’ll concede it’s an obvious joke: upon learning that the chief ethics lawyer in Donald Trump’s White House is resigning, everyone asked, “Donald Trump had a chief ethics lawyer?”
As it turns out, yes, though his office is apparently now empty. Politico reported yesterday:
After almost a year in the White House counsel’s office tackling a raft of ethics and financial disclosure issues, James Schultz resigned last week and is returning to private practice at the Philadelphia-based law firm where he previously worked, Cozen O’Connor.
Schultz insists his exit is unrelated to any of those myriad controversies, but simply triggered by a desire to get back to private law work and back to Philadelphia, where his family has remained…”

In ‘Blow to American Consumers,’ Trump-Appointed Judge Sides With Trump on CFPB article from Common Dreams. –
Why corrupt ‘Judges’ appointed by corrupt presidents should have limited terms:
“A Trump-appointed federal judge delivered a “blow to American consumers” on Tuesday by denying Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) deputy director Leandra English’s request for a temporary restraining order, which would have prevented Trump budget chief Mick Mulvaney from becoming the CFPB’s acting director.
U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly’s ruling effectively gives Mulvaney the authority to lead the CFPB, despite arguments from the agency’s architects insisting that the law is “clearly” not on his side. English is reportedly weighing several options in response to Kelly’s ruling, including an immediate appeal.
As Common Dreams reported, English filed suit on Sunday claiming that President Donald Trump’s appointment of Mulvaney was “unlawful” and arguing that she is the “rightful acting director.”
“Dodd-Frank is quite specific: It provides its own succession planning,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) argued shortly following Mulvaney’s appointment. “There is no vacancy for President Trump to fill.”…”

Donald Trump’s unhinged Islamophobic tweetstorm suggest he may be divorced from reality article from Salon. –
It’s been blatantly obvious that Trump is now and has been divorced from reality for quite a while:
“President Donald Trump has used his Twitter account as a platform to attack others, embellish his own accomplishments and mislead the public to a degree that makes it difficult to argue it’s not deliberate. His deceptive Islamophobic tweets on Wednesday morning were no different.
The president retweeted three unverified videos posted to Twitter by Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of Britain First, a far-right ultranationalist political organization that is opposed to multiculturalism and campaigns against Islam.
“Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!” Fransen wrote in the first video the president retweeted. Except the origins of the video tell a different story than the deliberately manipulative and provocative caption used by Fransen.
The video was originally posted in May on the Dutch video sharing website Dumpert, which was launched by GreenStijl, a Dutch blog…”
