Misadventures of a minority-elect President 201

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* begin with his commonplace Twitter tirades against his current perceived enemies while trying to deflect blame for his profoundly corrupt failed presidency, Trump likes comparing himself to Abraham Lincoln despite being the complete opposite and a demagogue that Lincoln warned against, Trump is losing control as his corruption and profound stupidity continue imploding his failing lackluster lame duck presidency, the endless parade of lies spewing from Trump’s lips over his Russia scandal are getting ridiculous, barely a year into his already failed presidency and our demented delinquent has already cemented his place as the worst president in America’s history, Trump resorts to new lies to deflect from facing the truth, how to take Trump’s lies and use them against him, Trump’s ‘no foreign deals’ pledge involves his chicanery in foreign deals, Trump wages war on the very workers he promised to protect and fight for, Trump encourages gerrymandering, still trying to destroy healthcare for millions of his supporters so his fraudulent friends can make more money at our expense and a lot more.

Trump Is Tantruming After Getting Owned By Emma Gonzalez For Taking NRA Money article from PoliticusUSA. –

When Trump – who received $30 million from the NRA – gets called out for taking said NRA money, he has to resort again to trying to blame his predecessor and not doing anything about stopping violence at schools perpetrated by his supporters.

Trump thinks he’s Honest Abe, but Lincoln warned us about demagogues like him article from Think Progress. –

In Trump’s land of delusion, he’s greater than Abe Lincoln, but in reality, he’s what Lincoln warned against:

“President Donald Trump loves to compare himself to Abraham Lincoln. Honest Abe would disagree.

Just last month, at a gathering of GOP lawmakers, Trump placed himself on Mount Rushmore again, asserting that Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) “actually once said I’m the greatest president in the history of our country. I said, does that include Lincoln and Washington? He said yes.”

Seriously. Last January, Trump even chose to be sworn in on ?the same bible Honest Abe used because he was “inspired by Lincoln’s words.”

On Presidents’ Day, though, it’s worth remembering Lincoln’s words, which make clear that Trump is the anti-Lincoln (and anti-Washington). He is the demagogue that not only the Founding Fathers like Alexander Hamilton warned us about, but that Lincoln himself warned us about as well…”

President Trump is losing control article from The Washington Post. –

Trump’s never-ending corruption and ignorance are taking down what is left of his lackluster lame duck presidency:

“Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation, and the Russia scandal in general, are driving this president around the bend, to the point where he is setting himself against not just the government he leads but also the interests of the United States of America. And everything we’ve seen up to now suggests that it will only get worse.

Multiple reports today from journalists covering the White House paint a picture of a president who spent the weekend seething with rage — at Mueller, at the media, at members of his administration, at the fact that he couldn’t play golf because it would have been unseemly in the wake of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting — and lashing out at everyone in sight, up to and including Oprah Winfrey. This is not a man with a firm command of his impulses.

Josh Dawsey and Philip Rucker described President Trump’s weekend:

In a string of 10 Twitter messages — which began after 11 p.m. Saturday and ended around noon Sunday, and which included profanity and misspellings — Trump opened a window into his state of mind, even as Trump’s representatives at a global security conference in Germany advised jittery allies to generally ignore the president’s tweets…”

President Trump Ranks Last in ‘Presidential Greatness,’ According to Historians article from TIME. –

Barely a year into his already failed presidency and our demented delinquent has already cemented his place as the worst president in America’s history:

“President Donald Trump is not afraid to talk himself up – but presidential historians don’t think he’s so great.

Just in time for Presidents’ Day, a survey of 170 presidential historians puts Trump in dead last place – behind even James Buchanan, whom many historians blame for failing to stop the Civil War.

Presidents & Executive Politics Presidential Greatness survey, conducted by University of Houston professor Brandon Rottinghaus and Boise State University professor Justin S. Vaughn, polled current and recent members of the Presidents & Executive Politics Section of the American Political Science Association and asked them to grade each president.

Trump’s first time on the list knocked Buchanan out of last place. President Barack Obama jumped up ten places in rank since the last survey was conducted in 2014…”

Watch John Oliver Mercilessly Weaponize Trump’s Own Tactics Against Him in First Show of 2018 article from Vanity Fair. –

How to take the joke that is our president* and turn his words against him:

“Mid-way through the first episode of Last Week Tonight since November, host John Oliver made a statement that served as something of a wake-up call to the cottage comedy industry that has sprung up around the Trump administration. While everyone from Showtime to Comedy Central to S.N.L. is still trying to milk laughs out of impersonating Donald J. Trump, Oliver wondered: “Is anything about Trump funny anymore? I don’t know. Somehow the world’s most objectively laughable human has become a comedy graveyard where laughter goes to die.”

Admittedly Oliver has always been reluctant about covering Trump at all, let alone playing him for laughs, but as insult riddled tirades against and sloppy blond wigged impressions of Trump generate diminishing returns, Oliver decided to go in a different direction. Leaning harder than ever on his roots at The Daily Show, Oliver put three months of criticism of Trump almost entirely in other people’s mouths in a package on international media. In other words, Oliver is applying Trump’s “many people are saying” tactic with one key difference: Last Week Tonight has the proof to back it up.

Oliver’s Season 5 premiere opened with a segment on the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Instead of ranting about another mass shooting, as he’s done in the past, Oliver left the harshest condemnation of the president and gun control policies generally to the Florida students like 18 year-old Emma Gonzalez.

As Oliver himself pointed out, an angry Last Week Tonight rant would only be more of the same when it comes to the now-familiar cycle of reactions to mass shootings in America. Oliver, Gonzalez, and more are determined to shake things up and avoid the creeping Trump numbness most Americans feel over a year into this presidency…”

The Trump Administration’s War on Workers article from Counterpunch. –

Trump broke his promise about having a president* that will work and fight for them, which isn’t surprising since he broke every other promise made and then some:

“When Donald Trump was running for the presidency, he promised that, if he was elected, “American worker[s] will finally have a president who will protect them and fight for them.” Today, though, safely ensconced in the White House, President Trump is waging a fierce campaign against American workers

His appointments to federal positions created to defend workers’ rights provide an indication of his priorities. For Secretary of Labor, Trump nominated Andrew Puzder, the CEO of a major fast food chain. When Puzder’s nomination was withdrawn amid allegations of labor law violations, Trump turned to Alexander Acosta, a figure with a long history of aligning with rightwing and corporate interests. As the new Labor Secretary, Acosta served as one of the stars at the annual gathering of the militantly anti-labor American Legislative Exchange Council. For Deputy Secretary of Labor, Trump chose Patrick Pizzella, a former employee of the rabidly anti-union National Right to Work Committee who had lobbied against raising sweatshop-level wages.

Other administration appointments had the same orientation. For Assistant Secretary of the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), Trump nominated David Zatezalo, a former CEO of a coal mining operation with serious mining violations. The Trump administration also took control of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) by appointing members with a record of opposing workers’ right to organize. Furthermore, Trump helped ensure an unsympathetic hearing for American workers in the courts by appointing new federal judges known for their deeply-ingrained rightwing views.

Assisted by these and other pro-corporate officials, the administration quickly attacked worker health and safety provisions. It repealed an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rule requiring employers to keep accurate injury records, repealed the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces rule ensuring that federal contractors follow safety and labor laws, withdrew an OSHA policy allowing workers in non-union workplaces to participate in OSHA inspections, and scrapped more than a dozen rules from the OSHA and MSHA regulatory agenda, including standards on combustible dust, styrene, 1-bromopropane, construction noise, update of permissible exposure limits, and MSHA penalties and refuge alternatives in coal mines. In addition, the administration delayed the issuance of the new standard for cancer-causing beryllium and enforcement of the OSHA standard for deadly silica dust…”

Trump ‘Blatantly Backs Gerrymandering’ in Call for GOP to Fight New Pennsylvania Maps article from Common Dreams. –

Our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator knows the only way the GOP can win elections is by cheating:

“Shortly after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Monday issued a new congressional map that eliminates the state GOP’s partisan gerrymander, President Donald Trump implored Republicans to challenge the new district lines, arguing that the original map—which the state’s highest court said “clearly” violates the constitution—”was correct.”

Trump tweeted “Hope Republicans in the Great State of Pennsylvania challenge the new “pushed” Congressional Map, all the way to the Supreme Court, if necessary. Your Original was correct! Don’t let the Dems take elections away from you so that they can raise taxes & waste money!”

Many commentators were quick to observe that Trump’s tweet effectively undercuts the Pennsylvania GOP’s argument that their maps were not drawn to gain partisan advantage.

“‘Don’t let the Dems take elections away from you’ is the sort of thing I would advise my client not to say if I were a Republican election attorney arguing that gerrymanders aren’t unconstitutional efforts to rig elections,” wrote Ian Millhiser of ThinkProgress…”

Russian trolls, fake news and provocateurs: That’s been Trump’s method all along article from Salon. –

Trump is a master conman who knows how to control the show in his land of delusion. His problem is his land of delusion is imploding because of reality.

Revisiting ‘Make America Great Again’ article from Counterpunch. –

On the farcical campaign slogan sold to a minority of morons foolish enough to believe a lying, conman president*:

“It’s been over a year since Donald Trump has been sworn into office. How does his campaign slogan of ‘Make America Great Again’ hold up?

Well, unsurprisingly, not too spectacular.

To start with, Making American Great Again is the antithesis of being even more beholden to the military-industrial-security complex, with a newly proposed $716 billion gift to the Pentagon. It is not inflaming tensions with a faraway dictator who has nuclear weapons. It is not bowing to another state, more than former presidential supplicants, because AIPAC and other pro-Israel lobbyists have filled your pockets. It is not rescinding states’ rights on their marijuana policies. Making America Great would not be reflected in calling neo-Nazis ‘good’ people and turning one’s back on our southern territory, Puerto Rico, when it’s most in need. It is not staying mum on white supremacist terrorism, while jumping up and down at the faintest hint of Islamic terrorism. It is not being the laughing stock of the entire world (arguably even more than under the second president Bush), due to the infantile, imbecilic behavior of a toddler who escaped from its crib.

No. None of this qualifies as ‘greatness’…”
