Misadventures of a minority-elect President 205

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 our national embarrassment’s being implicated in an intensifying scandal courtesy of his lawyer and a porn star, more Americans are waking up to the fact that they were conned by America’s worst-ever president*, many people are abandoning Trump’s sinking ship, why Trump’s despotic delusions of grandeur will never happen, America’s most corrupt-ever president* is personally responsible for intentionally creating much of the chaos that is imploding his failed presidency, in effortlessly racking up more charges against himself with speaking to witnesses in his ongoing Russia scandal Trump has taken his profound stupidity to a whole new level, it appears our mentally deranged dotard may get his meeting with little rocket man and much more.

Rural Americans Are Slowly Coming to the Realization Trump Played Them article from Alternet. –

And it only took them a little over a year to figure that out:

“Trump’s proposed Trade war isn’t resonating quite the way he anticipated in Rural America, where farmers are quick to realize the implications of Trump administration. In a sharply worded letter, the Nebraska Farm Bureau seems to indicate some buyers remorse:

“It has been very well documented that your historic path to the White House came directly through rural America. While your thoughts on trade where well known by farmers and ranchers, it would be very dangerous to assume it was the focus of their support. Mr. President, please do not turn your back on the farm and ranch families who depend on international markets and who rely on you to make wise decisions that don’t put their economic future in jeopardy.”

The caveat seems to be: “look, we knew you were out there on this stuff, but by and large we didn’t believe you and voted for you for other reasons”; now, it appears those other reasons aren’t quite as important as their livelihood could be harmed in through a trade policy that might sink the family farm.

How important is preventing a trade war to farmers?…”

Dana Milbank: President Trump is blessedly weak article from The Salt Lake Tribune. –

There are many reasons why Trump’s despotic delusions of grandeur will never happen, primarily because he’s too stupid:

“Washington – In the category of small mercies, let us file this one: As strongmen go, President Trump has proved to be blessedly weak.

It isn’t, apparently, for lack of ambition. The president, who has never been stingy in praising the world’s dictators, engaged in that favorite pastime again Saturday night before a friendly audience in what was supposed to be a private event at Mar-a-Lago.

The object of the president’s affection this time was China’s president, Xi Jinping, whom Trump hailed as a “great gentleman” who treated Trump “tremendously well” during Trump’s recent visit. In Trump’s glowing assessment, Xi is the most powerful Chinese leader “in a hundred years.”

One hundred years! How now, Mao?…”

Trump complicit with Scaramucci attacks on Kelly article from CNN. –

America’s most corrupt-ever president* personally enlisted his former communications director – who has been banned from the White House – to attack his own Chief of Staff:

“Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump publicly derided reports Tuesday that chaos is engulfing the West Wing, but in private, the man who thrives on discord seems to be sowing some of it himself.

The President has emboldened Anthony Scaramucci, the boisterous former communications director who was fired after just 10 days, to continue attacking White House chief of staff John Kelly during his cable news appearances, a source familiar with the situation told CNN.

In multiple television segments, Scaramucci has faulted Kelly for the “terrible morale” in the West Wing, at times referring to him as “General Jackass” and suggesting he apologize for his handling of the Rob Porter resignation. According to this source, the President is aware of Scaramucci’s criticisms and has not discouraged him from making them. Sources familiar with his thinking say Scaramucci is frustrated with Kelly because he has limited the former communications director’s White House access.

“I like conflict. I like having two people with two points of view,” Trump said Tuesday when asked about internal strife during a news conference. “I like watching it, I like seeing it.”…”

Could It Happen Here? Donald Trump, Tony Judt, and the Future of American Democracy article from The Nation. –

Whether or not our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator becomes America’s delusional despot or not is up to us:

“Are we on the road to authoritarianism? Donald Trump’s first year in office has prompted many observers to draw analogies to autocrats who have risen to power elsewhere, such as Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Turkey or Viktor Orbán in Hungary. Commentators across the spectrum have raised the alarm, including David Frum, a former speechwriter for George W. Bush; the Russian-American journalist Masha Gessen; and Harvard political scientists Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt, authors of How Democracies Die.

Trump certainly talks like an authoritarian and walks like an authoritarian. But at least thus far, he has not been able to rule like an authoritarian. That’s because his initiatives have met with resistance from the people, the states, and the courts—though, conspicuously, not from the Republican Party. Despite enjoying single-party control of both houses of Congress, Trump has succeeded in passing only one major piece of legislation, his tax reform bill, following multiple failures to repeal Obamacare. His administration is most often consumed by its own infighting and scandals. Much of what he has implemented has been via unilateral executive action, and can be reversed if and when a new president takes office. All in all, he has been a most incompetent authoritarian.

Still, as we enter the second year of the Trump administration and look toward the midterms in November, a critical question remains: Is Donald Trump’s election a step on the road to authoritarianism, or is he an anomaly, likely to be remembered as a failed leader who unwittingly catalyzed a new progressive majority? Which narrative is the right one will ultimately be determined as much by us as by Trump himself.

The significance of Trump’s election should not be lightly discounted, as it reflects an emerging and troubling trend in democracies across the world. Populism—defined by Princeton professor of politics Jan-Werner Müller in What Is Populism? as anti-elitist, anti-pluralist, and asserting an exclusive claim to speak for “the people” while dismissing as enemies those who disagree—is on the rise. In the United States and Europe alike, we have seen increasing support for a politics that defines itself by what it is against: elites, racial minorities, immigrants, and, often, government itself. Trump’s populist authoritarian tendencies share disturbing parallels with those of Orbán in Hungary, the Alternative for Germany party, Marine Le Pen’s National Front in France, and the Five Star Movement in Italy, which gained a troubling one-third of the votes cast in the March 4 elections…”

Trump’s Problem Isn’t Who’s Leaving – It’s Who’s Staying article from The Daily Beast. –

Is President Trump about to make this warmongering lunatic his national security adviser? article from The Week. –

The trash that our demented delinquent surrounds himself with is quite revealing:

“Reports that John Bolton met with President Trump in the White House on Tuesday to discuss the possibility of him succeeding H.R. McMaster as national security adviser should send a chill down the spines of every American — and indeed of every person on the planet.

In a country with a less bellicose foreign policy establishment, Bolton would be considered a warmongering lunatic. But America’s foreign policy establishment inclines toward reflexive militarism (on the grounds that American bombs, troops, and special operations forces are invariably a force for good in the world), and so Bolton comes off as merely somewhat more unhinged than his peers. But that shouldn’t blind us to the enormous danger confronting us all if he were to ascend to such a powerful position in the Trump administration.

Bolton thinks that war — by which I mean everything from the launching of missiles to the deployment of ground forces to foreign theaters of battle — is the solution to every problem the United States confronts in the world. That is not an exaggeration. I challenge readers to find any statement Bolton has made against any American act of war at any time anywhere. And no, Bolton’s harsh words for the Obama administration’s plans for a limited air strike against Syria in retaliation for Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons in the country’s civil war doesn’t count, since the criticism amounted to the argument that the bombing would be too limited in scope.

The pattern goes all the way back to the Vietnam War, which Bolton supported as a young man (while personally avoiding deployment to Southeast Asia by joining the Maryland National Guard). Like most Republicans, he supported Ronald Reagan’s confrontational stance against the Soviet Union and George H.W. Bush’s Persian Gulf War to turn back Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait. During the Clinton administration, he advocated military interventions in the Balkans and the use of force to topple Saddam Hussein. He strongly advocated for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and as recently as 2015 defended the latter as the “correct” decision, despite our failure to find the weapons of mass destruction that were Bolton’s primary reason for supporting the war in the first place…”

Trump’s favorite pastor says ‘thou shalt not have sex with a porn star’ – but doesn’t care if the president did article from The Raw Story. –

Highlighting the problem with moronic evangelicals and why they have no place in politics:

“One of Donald Trump’s faith advisers admitted on-air that the president’s alleged affair with adult film actress Stormy Daniels is “totally irrelevant” despite it being personally abhorrent to his beliefs.

“Evangelicals still believe in the commandment: thou shalt not have sex with a porn star,” Pastor Robert Jeffress said on Fox News Thursday evening. “However, whether this president violated that commandment or not is totally irrelevant to our support of him.”

Jeffress was countered by Fox News host Juan Williams, who argued that the story remains significant due to Trump’s mounting legal issues related to the reported $130,000 “hush agreement” settlement paid out to Daniels a few weeks before the 2016 presidential election.

“A blue dress was not enough to turn you into a red Republican,” Jeffress shot back at the network’s liberal analyst, “and I believe anything Stormy Daniels has said will not be enough to turn red Republicans into blue Democrats. This is about the policies and issues.”…”
