It’s comical hearing Trump talk about ethics and such when he possesses none of those qualities himself.
Trump can stop the ‘witch hunt’ – by proving he’s not a witch article from The Chicago Tribune. –
Always bitching about the ‘witch hunt’ but never proving otherwise – primarily because he can’t:
“The week began, as so many do, with President Donald Trump using Twitter to voice his disdain for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion between Russia and Trump’s campaign: “A total WITCH HUNT with massive conflicts of interest!”
That was, according to trumptwitterarchive.com, a website that allows you to search all of Trump’s tweets, the 26th time the president has tweeted the term “Witch Hunt” in relation to the Russia investigation.
Clearly, our very calm president is bothered by Mueller’s investigation, which might explain why he keeps denouncing the FBI, the Department of Justice, Mueller, his own attorney general, the media, anyone who disagrees with him, and, I would guess, the dictionary for having the gall to include the word “collusion” on its pages.
It’s all a witch hunt, you see. And that could be a good way for Trump to explain away the Mueller investigation, were it not for all the witches that keep getting caught…”

Why the Summer Zervos Lawsuit Against President Trump Matters article from TIME. –
The hazards of our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator claiming to be above the law:
“Since taking office, President Trump and his lawyers have repeatedly trotted out the argument that this President is above the law. Whether declaring he has “the absolute right” to do what he wants with the Justice Department, or seeking to avoid litigation against him with claims of immunity, the President all too often purports to be the king of the castle, not President of a democratic nation.
Tuesday’s opinion from Judge Schechter of the New York Supreme Court in the Summer Zervos defamation case against Trump rightly rejects these claims. The very first sentence, “No one is above the law.” could not be clearer. No one, not even and perhaps especially not the President of the United States is entirely immune from suit.
The case involves former Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos, who is suing President Trump for defamation because he called her a liar after she accused him of sexual misconduct. The suit was filed in January of 2017, shortly before inauguration day, in state court in New York, where Zervos and Trump both lived at the time. Trump responded to the suit with the argument that — because he is now President — he cannot be sued in state court. Trump’s lawyers argued that a constitutional provision making the Constitution and federal laws the supreme law of the land prevents state courts from hearing cases against a sitting President. In other words, Trump’s argument is that because the President holds an important federal office he can’t be sued in a state court.
As the New York court noted, the U.S. Supreme Court made it clear 20 years ago that the President’s office doesn’t place him beyond the reach of the courts in Clinton v. Jones, a case involving strikingly similar circumstances. (That was the sexual harassment suit brought by Paula Jones against President Clinton over his conduct while he was Governor of Arkansas.) In that civil suit, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously that a president can be sued in a civil case based on his personal conduct before taking office. For wrongful conduct not falling within his official duties, the President is subject to suit just like any other American…”

Bolton pick underscores Trump’s foreign policy confusion article from Politico. –
Picking a piece of shit war hawk like Bolton to lead his foreign policy reveals that Trump seriously played the minority of minions that were stupid enough to ‘elect’ him:
“For the Donald Trump who preaches an “America First” foreign policy with little patience for international treaties and organizations, John Bolton is a logical choice for national security adviser. The former United Nations ambassador has said the United Nations could lose 10 stories without anyone noticing and calls for ripping up the seven-nation Iran nuclear deal.
For the Donald Trump who as a 2016 candidate savaged supporters of the Iraq War and other Middle East military actions, Bolton is a major head-scratcher. He was a champion of George W. Bush’s 2003 invasion of Iraq — a decision he partially defends to this day — and in recent years has also endorsed military action and regime change in Iran, Syria and Libya.
Foreign policy veterans of both parties familiar with the hawkish former diplomat, whom Trump picked Thursday to replace National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, say that Bolton’s worldview is as much “military first” as it is “America First.”
The result is growing confusion about what Trump’s foreign policy views really are — and whether the president himself even knows what he thinks about the use of American military power…”

Many of the so-called leaks from the White House often appear to come directly from the delusional delinquent currently occupying it.
White House statements don’t mean anything anymore article from Think Progress. –
Trump is gaslighting the country and with his history of never telling the truth it’s impossible to believe a word he says:
“As the spending bill to keep the government open heads to Senate for a vote, President Donald Trump has signaled he won’t vote for it because Congress has failed to solve a problem he created.
Trump tweeted “I am considering a VETO of the Omnibus Spending Bill based on the fact that the 800,000 plus DACA recipients have been totally abandoned by the Democrats (not even mentioned in Bill) and the BORDER WALL, which is desperately needed for our National Defense, is not fully funded.”
Less than 24 hours ago, Office of Budget and Management Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters that the president has every intention of signing the bill once it reaches his desk.
“Let’s cut right to the chase: Is the President going to sign the bill?” Mulvaney asked. “The answer is yes.”…”

Trump Can’t Get What He Wants and Doesn’t Know Why article from The Atlantic. –
Our nefarious narcissist can’t figure out why no one is bowing down to their King and giving him everything his fraudulent heart desires:
“In the end, Donald Trump had to sign the bill—for the military, he said. But he didn’t have to like it.
That was the upshot of a peculiar and rambling set of remarks (even by his standards) the president made early Friday afternoon as he signed a bill funding the government through September.
“I’ve signed this omnibus budget bill. There are a lot of things I’m unhappy about in this bill,” Trump said. “But I say to Congress, I will never sign another bill like this again. I’m not going to do it again.”
What it came down to, apparently, was defense spending. Trump threatened to veto the bill in a tweet Friday morning, after the White House had previously indicated he’d sign it. (My colleague Elaina Plott reported, however, that the president himself had reservations at that time.) Throughout the remarks, Trump returned incessantly to the question of funding national defense…”

Trump’s GOP brown shirts didn’t look at any collusion angles while ‘investigating’ – albeit more aiding and abetting than anything else – his Russia scandal so it was easier for them to close the sham and clear his profoundly corrupt and ignorant ass.

Trump Wants His Cabinet To Serve His Ego, Not The Nation article from The Huffington Post. –
Trump doesn’t give a damn about this country or the fools that voted for him, he only cares about his own dystopian agenda and delusional desires:
“In commenting on his decision to remove Secretary of State Rex Tillerson from his position last week, President Donald Trump explained to reporters at the White House, “We were not really thinking the same. Really, it was a different mindset, a different thinking.”
That different way of thinking had been apparent from the start of Tillerson’s stint at State, visible not only in the secretary’s disagreement with Trump on how best to handle North Korea, but also in the pettier matters that have come to define this pitiful presidency. Tillerson, a former Eagle Scout, reportedly objected to Trump’s gross politicization of his visit to the Boy Scout Jamboree over the summer. And he found the president’s ability to command basic facts so unimpressive that he reportedly referred to Trump as a moron in front of other administration officials.
While the coming negotiations with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un provided a useful cover for Trump’s hasty actions, Tillerson’s exit really owed to his failure to fall in line with the president, something Trump assured reporters would not be a problem with his new appointee to State, Mike Pompeo. “We’re always on the same wavelength,” Trump said of Pompeo.
Perhaps anticipating more criticism of the continually revolving door that is the White House these days, Trump defended his move. “I’m really at a point where we’re getting very close to having the Cabinet and other things I want,” Trump explained, as if the West Wing’s constant turnover was some refining process of personnel rather than a crisis of presidential leadership…”
