The many self-inflicted crises rushing the impending implosion of our malevolent minority-elect president*s disastrous tenure in the past week alone begins today’s misadventures, even his wag the dog moment in illegally bombing Syria isn’t going to save our nefarious narcissist’s profoundly corrupt, idiotic Orange ass, Trump keeps fuming but hasn’t blown so it remains to be seen how much more rope he’ll need to hang himself, Comey confirms our demented delinquent is unfit for office and a total liar in addition to numerous other tidbits – many of which were already known, still trying to figure out what exactly was accomplished by illegally bombing Syria, reality clashes with Trump’s land of delusion – which has got to drive him crazy, our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator’s delusions of grandeur have made it obvious it’s time for him to go, Trump’s illegal attack on Syria was a bigger crime than that he accused Assad of and much more.

Unfit to Command article from The Atlantic. –
Even his wag the dog moment isn’t going to save our nefarious narcissist’s corrupt Orange ass because he’s too mentally unfit:
“The weekend news from Washington featured two story lines: the U.S.-led coalition missile strikes against Syrian government forces, and President Trump’s most extreme Twitter meltdown to date. The question for all the world to worry over: How closely are these two story lines interconnected? How and to what extent is the president’s increasingly extreme mental state obtruding on the national security of the United States?
The most important business of the day on Friday, April 13, was to sign off on that night’s planned missile strike against government forces in Syria. The decision was a heavy one, involving risks of conflict with Russia and Iran. It also sharply reversed Trump’s public statements only nine days before that the U.S. would be ending its Syria role soon.
And yet that’s not where Trump’s brain was. Starting at 8 am that day and continuing into the afternoon, the president erupted in a sequence of rage tweets against former FBI director James Corey, demanding that he be prosecuted, calling him as a “slime ball,” and congratulating himself for firing Comey.
Yet when the president stepped before the TV cameras at 8 p.m. to announce the strikes, most pundits and most politicians temporarily disregarded that same-day evidence of the president’s agitated mental state. The impulse to rally around the flag seized American elites, even many Trump critics, who saluted the president’s leadership. The strong dormant desire to discover some normality in this most abnormal administration reasserted itself. As happened the last time he launched missiles into Syria, almost exactly a year before, Trump went to bed that night to praise that he had proven himself presidential…”

Albright: Trump’s ‘undemocratic instincts’ trouble me a lot article from The Hill. –
Albright’s criminal history in politics doesn’t give her much right to talk but she does bring up a couple good points about our felonious fake president*:
Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on President Trump: “I’m not calling him a fascist. I’m saying that he is a president that has undemocratic instincts that trouble me a lot” https://t.co/Q7uVRxP9Ew
— CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) April 15, 2018
Madeleine Albright, who served as secretary of State under former President Clinton, said that President Trump has “undemocratic instincts” that she finds troubling.
“I’m not calling him a fascist,” Albright — who recently wrote a book about fascism — told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on Sunday. “I’m saying that he is a president that has undemocratic instincts that trouble me a lot.”
Albright said the president’s instincts, such as thinking he is above the law, calling the press the enemy of the people and actively “exacerbating the differences that exist in our society,” make her concerned…”

Reich: The truth about an untethered President Trump article from Salon. –
With no more adults in the room to keep him in check, our dysfunctional dumb ass is going to completely hang himself:
“The petulant adolescent in the White House — who has replaced most of the adults around him with raging sycophants and has demoted his chief of staff, John Kelly, to lapdog — lacks adequate supervision.
Before, he was merely petty and vindictive. He’d tweet nasty things about people he wanted to humiliate, like former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Now his vindictiveness has turned cruel. After smearing FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe with unfounded allegations that he lied to investigators, the new Trump made sure McCabe was fired just days before he would have been eligible for a pension after more than twenty-one years of service.
Before, he was merely xenophobic. He’d call Mexicans murderers and rapists…”

Here’s One More Watergate Parallel For President Trump article from Alternet. –
Wanting to review the contents on his personal lawyer’s hard drive to determine what information he thinks is protected by privilege is just another of the many ways Trump is emulating Richard Nixon before he was impeached:
“President Donald Trump is responding to the raid on the office of his attorney, Michael Cohen, by making arguments reminiscent of another Republican president with whom he probably doesn’t want to be associated — President Richard Nixon.
On an immediate level, this may seem like a simple case of Trump and Cohen grasping at straws to conceal whatever they feel might be legally damaging to them in Cohen’s documents. It is unlikely that the presiding judge will allow them to effectively transform the search warrant into a subpoena — which is what the pair are essentially requesting, when they ask to be able to go through the documents to remove anything that might be protected by attorney/client privilege.
But there is an aspect of this that is positively Nixonian in nature. When Nixon was ordered by special prosecutor Archibald Cox to turn over tapes of secret recordings he had made of White House conversations, the president refused. When the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled that Nixon had to comply with Cox’s request, the president attempted to craft a deal with Attorney General Elliot Richardson that would allow him to review what was in the tapes first, summarize their contents to a federal judge and then allow Sen. John Stennis (who, despite being a Democrat from Mississippi, was not unsympathetic to Nixon) to listen to the recordings and independently verify that Nixon had not left anything important out of them.
The Nixon camp had claimed this was to protect matters of interest to national security. But although Richardson agreed to the compromise, Cox did not, and Nixon ordered him fired. What followed was the “Saturday night massacre”: Richardson resigned instead of following through on the unconstitutional order; Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus likewise resigned instead of doing so, so the job of firing Cox was ultimately left to U. S. Solicitor General Robert Bork — whose actions served as the argument against his confirmation to the Supreme Court 14 years later…”

How Courts Are Neutralizing Trump’s Deceptions article from The Atlantic. –
Facts do play a major role in real life, despite our Ignoramus-in-Chief’s alternate reality in his land of delusion, and he can’t handle that:
“On April 6, FBI agents raided the home, hotel room, and office of President Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen. We now have a sense of the scope of their search: Investigators appear to have been seeking material relating to, among other things, the Access Hollywood tape, Cohen’s payments to two women who signed nondisclosure agreements regarding their alleged affairs with Trump, and communications between Cohen and two leaders of the National Enquirer, who may have played a role in silencing stories unfavorable to Trump. And with that, two of the major stories of the last year—the Russia investigation and the president’s history of sexual impropriety and harassment—began to converge.
The convergence is not entire. The agents raiding Cohen’s office and residences were acting not on behalf of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, but for federal prosecutors for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, on the basis of a referral from Mueller’s office. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees the Mueller investigation, may have signed off on that referral precisely to keep the special counsel from overstepping the bounds of his probe into Russian election interference and obstruction of justice. What’s more, a government court filing suggests that federal prosecutors have been conducting an investigation into Cohen for some time.
Trump’s strategy for responding to these developments was the same as always: deny any wrongdoing and insist that the fault lies instead with the investigators. (“Attorney-client privilege is dead!” he tweeted. “NO COLLUSION!!!”) It’s the same instinct that has reportedly led him to argue that the voice making vulgar comments on the Access Hollywood tape isn’t really his own. In fact, the tape is real enough that federal law enforcement is reportedly looking into it as part of the investigation into Cohen.
The president is a fabulist unmoored from the truth. And the confluence of the Russia investigation and Trump’s disturbing behavior toward women shows what happens when a serial liar collides at full speed with a legal system premised on the idea that words have meaning, and actions result in consequences. Trump’s obfuscation has been alarmingly effective in the realm of politics. It will likely prove less so in the courtroom, a space reserved for evaluating facts and weighing the consistency of arguments—though as president, Trump is unlikely to find himself on the wrong end of a criminal prosecution…”

The Trump Super Fixer who ‘Knows Where All the Bodies Are Buried’ article from The Daily Beast. –
Trump’s bodyguard keeps taking center stage in many of Trump’s scandals as he too knows where all the evidence of Trump’s crimes are buried:
“When Stormy Daniels appeared at Donald Trump’s penthouse hotel room, on the lustful summer night in 2006 that has come to haunt his presidency, the two were not entirely alone.
Trump’s loyal bodyguard—a towering former NYPD detective with clipped white hair and a steely expression—met her at the door to the suite, according to Daniels’ account of the alleged tryst. Keith Schiller had already worked for his reality-TV star boss for seven years, ever since a chance encounter with Marla Maples in New York, and he’d quickly risen through the ranks to become Trump’s head of security. Now, he and his boss were in Lake Tahoe for a celebrity golf tournament and, as several women present for the bacchanalian weekend would attest, Trump was looking to get laid.
Schiller was apparently ready to help.
Earlier that day, Trump—newly married for a third time, with an infant son at home—had visited the curvaceous, blond Daniels at a promo booth for Wicked Pictures, the adult-entertainment studio where Stormy was a “contract girl.” (They’d already shared a flirty ride around the course in a golf cart, Daniels claims.) While there, Trump also ogled another blond bombshell, porn star Jessica Drake. As the women tell it, he scored both of their phone numbers. He singled out Daniels in particular for a dinner date…”

UNPRESIDENTED – A Complete Breakdown Of Donald Trump’s 64th Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt. –
A look at the latest disastrous week from the failed presidency of America’a illegitimate minority-elect president*:
“As [Mussolini] was consolidating his power, he said, ‘if you pluck a chicken one feather at a time, nobody notices.’ And so, I have been concerned about the feather-plucking that is going on in the United States…I think [Trump] is the least democratic president that I’ve observed.” — The first female Secretary of State Madeleine Albright discussing her new book “Fascism: A Warning” on Pod Save The World
This was the week President Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen (who’s under criminal investigation) had his offices, home, and hotel raided by the FBI. It was the week Speaker Paul Ryan announced his upcoming retirement. It was the week the US, UK, and France struck Syria. It was the week Americans sat on the edge of their Twitter timelines, wondering when President Trump was going to make yet another attempt to obstruct the Russia investigation and fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
But it was also the week Madeleine Albright (who fled Czechoslovakia with her parents in March 1939, just ten days after the Nazis invaded) released her book on fascism. A book that serves as a powerful reminder of what’s at stake and how today’s challenges echo the historic, never-ending tug of war between democracy and autocracy. Between decency and depravity. Between truth and fallacy.
President Trump has relentlessly eroded democratic norms, or as Italian Dictator Benito Mussolini put it, ‘plucked a chicken one feather at a time’ since the day he announced his candidacy, and this week was no different…”
