Misadventures of a minority-elect President 193

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 malignant minority-elect president begin with his top lawyers lying to him about his Russia scandal to prevent his being impeached for obstruction of justice and covering up his crimes, Trump abandoned populism – which isn’t surprising to the majority that didn’t ‘elect’ him, Trump supporters are heavy consumers of fake news courtesy of the idiot they voted for, the price we pay for having a profoundly corrupt and ignorant demented delinquent running this country, the duplicitous irony of our racist Twitter tyrant’s alleged support of the Iranian people – after banning them from entering America, our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator is waging war on the Justice Department since he’ll be going down for the count soon over his Russia scandal and obstruction of justice, it’s time for our grandiose, impulsive idiot in the White House to have a psyche eval, White House tell all book reveals what many have known about Trump for years – which is why he never should have been allowed to run for president in the first place as the indications of his mental deficiencies keep getting confirmed, yet another Trump lie – this time about job creation – comes back to bite him in the ass as 2017 was the worst year for job creation since 2011, as Trump’s corrupt regime gets closer to being removed due to all the crimes committed, the desperation will grow as will his pernicious outbursts and actions and much more.

How Trump abandoned populism article from The Week. –

Trump never had any intention of helping the minority of minions that ‘elected’ him and never will – it’s all about him and his fraudulent billionaire friends that own him:

“Conservatives inclined to cheer major tax-cut legislation even if it’s signed by a president they don’t particularly care for are frustrated by its unpopularity. They blame the media and Democrats for torquing up class warfare. In effect, they ask, don’t you know you’ll get a tax cut, too?!

Here is an alternative explanation: Working- and middle-class voters don’t much care that they might get a (temporary) tax cut. The problem is, when they hear Republicans touting the magic of cuts, they smell a rat. They’ve been hearing the same rhetoric for 40 years, and they know the fix is in. They suspect that the wealthiest Americans stand to gain the most — and they would be right.

It didn’t have to be this way.

In fact, Donald Trump, the candidate, promised the country a different way, a different kind of Republicanism; he promised a kind of radical-center populism. Candidate Trump entertained the idea of raising taxes on the wealthy, including himself. As late as this past September, he signaled a commitment to eliminating the carried-interest loophole for hedge fund and private equity managers. As late as this past March, there was still talk of breaking up the big banks and reinstating Glass-Steagall legislation. He says he still wants an infrastructure bill — but the deficits caused by these tax cuts (estimates vary from $500 billion to $1 trillion over the next 10 years, depending on how much growth they stimulate and, conversely, how much easier it becomes to game the tax code) will make it hard to find money for new spending…”

On collusion with Russia, Trump’s rhetoric takes a desperate turn article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –

As I have previously noted, obstruction of justice will help end the dystopian joke of a presidency but it’ll be interesting to see where the collusion aspect of it goes:

“Donald Trump spoke to the New York Times on Friday for 30 minutes. Over the course of the half-hour, the president said there was “no collusion” between his campaign and Russia 16 times – as if Trump had some kind of nervous tick he simply couldn’t get under control.

Indeed, the president wasn’t just desperate to deny what seems plainly true; he also seemed eager to create an alternate reality in which he’s already been exonerated by Democrats. “Virtually every Democrat has said there is no collusion…. I saw Dianne Feinstein the other day on television saying there is no collusion,” he said of California’s senior senator. “She’s the head of the [Senate Intelligence Committee].”

In other words, the president seems convinced of the legitimacy of his alternate reality, to the point that he believes others have embraced it, too. The trouble, of course, is that literally zero Democrats have drawn this conclusion; he’s misquoting Dianne Feinstein; and she’s not even the chair of the committee.

But instead of rehashing the painfully obvious evidence pointing to collusion between Trump World and Russia, I wanted to highlight something else the president said in the interview that jumped out at me…”

Trump Tweets Support For Iranians While Banning Them From The U.S. article from The Huffington Post. –

The duplicitous irony of our racist Twitter tyrant’s support of the Iranian people – after banning them from entering America:

“President Donald Trump once again praised Iran’s anti-government protesters on Tuesday ? and the irony was not lost on many, given his administration’s repeated attempts to block Iranians from coming to the U.S.

“The people of Iran are finally acting against the brutal and corrupt Iranian regime,” Trump tweeted early Tuesday morning. “The people have little food, big inflation and no human rights. The U.S. is watching!”

Trump tweeted: “The people of Iran are finally acting against the brutal and corrupt Iranian regime. All of the money that President Obama so foolishly gave them went into terrorism and into their “pockets.” The people have little food, big inflation and no human rights. The U.S. is watching!”

Trump and his administration have repeatedly praised demonstrators since protests broke out against the Iranian government last week…”

Welcome to 2018! Donald Trump Is Worse Than Ever! article from The Nation. –

We have a fight ahead of us, but it appears that the majority that didn’t ‘elect’ him is ready:

“On the first workday of 2018, Donald Trump proved that he’d made no New Year’s resolutions to sober up politically. He’s going to be the exact same maniac he was in 2017, on Twitter at least. CNN posted a dizzying Hollywood Squares matrix of Trump’s nine morning tweets. In just a few minutes, he attacked his own “Deep State Justice Department,” called for Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin to go to “jail,” again mocked North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as “Rocket Man,” savaged the “Failing New York Times,” and took credit for the fact that 2017 saw zero fatalities in domestic air crashes. There have been zero fatalities in domestic air crashes since 2009. (Thanks, Obama!)

Trump is incorrigible and still, predictably, dangerous. Over the long holiday weekend, angry progressives vented some of their fear and outrage over that at the very same New York Times Trump attacked, singling out three articles that made it look like the nation’s most important paper is bending backward to meet the president on his own terms, truth be damned. You can trace a connection between Trump’s ever-accelerating craziness and abuse and the Times’ growing trouble with its progressive readers. If you cared enough to do so, that is.

First came Michael S. Schmidt’s “impromptu” interview with the president at his Mar-a-Lago resort, also known as his faux-opulent Florida grift. It turned out Schmidt was lunching there with right-wing Trump pal Christopher Ruddy of Newsmax, and Ruddy told reporters that he helped broker the sit-down. It’s fair to call the Trump-Schmidt meeting impromptu as long as Ruddy’s role in making it happen was disclosed, but the Times was sketchy about that. Schmidt described squatting at the president’s side in a catcher’s position for 30 minutes, until his thighs began to ache. That might explain why so many balls got past him.

Trump made impossible and/or incoherent claims about taxes (“I know the details of taxes better than anybody. Better than the greatest CPA.”), something he called “chainlike immigration,” health care, and his relationship with China’s leaders, who he claimed “treated me better than anybody’s ever been treated in the history of China.” Schmidt challenged none of it, even telling Trump his China nonsense “makes a lot of sense” and agreeing that indicted campaign manager Paul Manafort worked for Trump “for a very short period of time.”…”

White House confronts questions about Trump’s ‘mental fitness’ article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –

It has been obvious for quite a while that our delusional delinquent has serious mental issues so side-stepping the question won’t do any good:

“Donald Trump rattled observers around the world on Tuesday night, boasting about the size of his “nuclear button,” and effectively daring North Korea to demonstrate its nuclear capabilities. It prompted a new round of speculation about whether the American president is unwell.

In fact, at White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ briefing yesterday, a reporter broached the subject that much of the political world thinks about, but rarely discusses aloud.

REPORTER: Should Americans be concerned about the president’s mental fitness that he appears to be speaking so lightly about threats regarding a nuclear button?

SANDERS: I think the president and the people of this country should be concerned about the mental fitness of the leader of North Korea…”

It’s Been an Open Secret All Along article from The Atlantic. –

Trump’s New Plan To Uncover Voter Fraud Is Just As Alarming As His Old Plan article from The Huffington Post. –

Still trying to disenfranchise voters while dubiously trying to justify his lies about non-existent voter fraud:

“Even as Democrats and voting rights groups praised the sudden demise of President Donald Trump’s voter fraud commission on Wednesday, voting rights experts were raising alarms about the news that the Department of Homeland Security would step into the breach.

The White House said Wednesday that dissolving the commission didn’t mean the administration was ending its focus on voter fraud. Homeland Security will take up the baton. Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R), the vice chair of the now-defunct panel, told Politico that the department can take information collected by the commission and run it against an Immigration and Customs Enforcement database of non-citizens to identify people illegally on state voter rolls.

Voting rights groups had viewed the commission as nothing more than an attempt to gin up evidence to back Trump’s unsubstantiated claims about widespread voter fraud in the 2016 election. On Thursday, election lawyers, civil rights groups and other experts saw serious flaws in the Homeland Security plan, too.

They noted that voter fraud does not fall with Homeland Security’s expertise and that efforts to cross-match voting rolls with Homeland Security data in the past have resulted in high numbers of people being incorrectly identified as non-citizens. Plus, the department has the power to deport people…”

10 Wild Takeaways from the Scandalous New Trump Tell-All article from Alternet. –

It turns out Trump is more corrupt and delusional – and why his administration is in total chaos – than originally thought:

“The complex relationship between Donald J. Trump and the conservative media outlets—including Breitbart News and Fox News—that minted him as a candidate and sold him as an acceptable alternative to establishment Republicans is detailed in a third excerpt from journalist Michael Wolff’s forthcoming book, Fire and Fury.

Wolff gained unprecedented access to the West Wing to write the book, and the excerpt, published in British GQ, follows similarly astonishing selections published in New York magazine, The Guardian and The Hollywood Reporter. Fire and Fury will be published Friday, four days earlier than had been planned, following attempts by Trump’s lawyer to halt its publication.

Below are some of the key revelations from the British GQ excerpt:

1. After being deposed as Fox News chairman, Roger E. Ailes courted Stephen K. Bannon, then the chief White House political strategist, with the idea of starting a new conservative network, one that was expected to also attract some of the brightest lights at Fox News. “With [Bill] O’Reilly and [Sean] Hannity on board,” Wolff writes, “there could be television riches fuelled by, into the foreseeable future, a new Trump-inspired era of right-wing passion and hegemony.”…”
