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:
We begin today’s misadventures of our malignant minority-elect president* with the many ways he has demonstrated his loyalty to Russia over the U.S. – making him look like a traitor instead of a sitting president, Trump’s claims of being the roughest president ever on Russia are nothing but pure fodder and lies, Trump’s Gestapo is having difficulty reuniting the children they are terrorizing with the parents, our gift that keeps on giving keeps providing yet more ammo to fuel his ongoing collusion and corruption investigations, prepare for another meltdown from our Twitter tyrant as his equally corrupt GOP brown shirts continue defending the indefensible, things we’ve learned from our Authoritarian Orange Overlord’s worst foreign policy week ever, the 3 main theories – all of which are plausible – that explain our dystopian Orange dumb ass’s approach to Putin and Russia and much more.

Yet more reason why Trump’s claims of being the roughest president ever on Russia are complete fodder and lies.
There must be a reckoning article from The Week. –
Illegally profiting by raping U.S. taxpayers while staying at his own properties is not legal and it’s time for America’s most corrupt-ever president* to be held accountable for that too:
“President Trump committed yet another grotesque violation of the Constitution on his recent trip to Scotland, when he used nearly $70,000 in public money to pay for rooms at a hotel in Scotland he owns directly, The Scotsman reports.
This kind of bald corruption is chewing at the roots of the United States as a functioning nation. If constitutional democracy is to survive here, there must be a reckoning with this scandal — and that means prosecutions and prison sentences.
It is simply unquestionable that Trump’s behavior is a violation of constitutional stipulations about how the president is to be compensated. Here’s what it says:
The president shall, at stated times, receive for his services, a compensation, which shall neither be increased nor diminished during the period for which he shall have been elected, and he shall not receive within that period any other emolument from the United States, or any of them. [The Constitution of the United States]…”

The Trump Administration Has Reunited Just 15% Of Migrant Children With Their Parents article from PoliticusUSA. –
After terrorizing migrant children and their families our dimwitted dip shit is having a hard time reuniting them after being ordered to do so by a Court – which isn’t surprising given his Gestapo’s track record for illegally mucking up wet dreams:
“Donald Trump caused a crisis on the border over the past several months by implementing a zero-tolerance policy that rips migrant children from their parents, and his administration’s effort to fix it has been a disaster.
According to NBC News, citing legal documents filed late Thursday, less than 15 percent of families have been reunited.
“The Trump administration said in a court filing late Thursday that it has reunified 364 of more than 2,500 migrant children separated from their parents at the U.S. southern border, just one week out from a court-ordered deadline,” the report noted.
The court-ordered deadline for the Trump administration to reunite these families is July 26. Thursday’s news is a red flag that the administration won’t even come close to making it…”

Team Trump Is in Chaos Over Putin’s White House Visit article from Alternet. –
Our moronic gift that keeps on giving just doesn’t know when to quit as he takes his collusion to a entirely new level:
“It’s been four days since President Trump stood on the stage in Helsinki and pledged fealty to Russian president Vladimir Putin. Well, OK — he didn’t actually pledge fealty, he just implied it in his eagerness to please his counterpart. Perhaps this wouldn’t have seemed so obvious if he hadn’t insulted America’s closest allies in the run-up to the meeting and then maligned his own intelligence agencies as being no more reliable than Putin himself.
The immediate firestorm was fierce but it’s obvious that Republicans desperately want the president to find a way to settle this controversy and move on to the next one. Unfortunately, Trump can’t seem to help making things worse, so the fire is still burning out of control.
On Wednesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders set everyone on edge all over again. She failed to tamp down suspicion that Trump had really meant it when he’d said during the press conference that he thought Putin had made an “incredible offer” to allow Robert Mueller to come to Russia to interview the military officers he’d indicted — in exchange for allowing Russian prosecutors to interview Americans, including Michael McFaul, the former ambassador to Russia. People believed Trump might actually do it because, after the first meeting between the two presidents in 2017, Trump had sounded like a delighted young fanboy when Putin suggested that the two countries should create a “cybersecurity task force” to share top-secret information.
That idea was shot down by the experts, but Trump still loves it. He and Putin brought it up again at the press conference. It’s that kind of eager-beaver gullibility that shows Trump is obtuse enough not to understand when he’s being played. Since nobody knows anything about what happened in his private chat with Putin, it’s fair to be extremely suspicious…”

Experts explain why Trump loyalists refuse to accept that their idol is compromised article from Salon. –
Because too many of his moronic mini me’s are incapable of figuring that out themselves, preferring instead to allow his delusions to becomes theirs, and racism and prejudice play a yuge part too.
Double-Decker Narcissism article from Slate. –
More on why Trump’s moronic mini me’s often act like lemmings who are stupid enough to only believe what their impotent imbecile wants to believe:
“The New York Times’ Wednesday story revealing Donald Trump was fully and meticulously briefed before his inauguration about direct Russian interference in the 2016 election solves the mystery once and for all: Trump simply cannot permit his own brain to accept any evidence that he didn’t win the presidency by millions of votes. That’s it. No matter how many Russian emails and texts the nation’s intelligence apparatus show him, no matter how many times he is reminded of what is incontrovertibly true, Trump’s mind cannot reconcile reality with his own truth: that he is the most beloved and cherished leader in American history. Even when he was forced to walk back his Helsinki comments about trusting Russia more than his own intelligence agencies, in a performance arguably more horrifying than the original press conference with Vladimir Putin, Trump couldn’t manage to stay on message. Within hours of his clarification, he had reverted back to “no” when asked whether Russia was still targeting the United States.
This isn’t an intelligence problem or even a political problem. It’s an epistemological problem. This president is never going to allow himself to believe something that is abhorrent to him, and he will therefore dismiss, deflect, and contradict any information that doesn’t confirm his pre-existing beliefs. Whether or not he’s ever directly conspired with Russia, whether or not the Russians have something on him, Trump’s mental health requires him to reject even flawlessly sourced facts that he cannot integrate into his worldview. The most important conclusion we can draw from the past week’s events is that even his own aides have given up on trying to persuade him of the truth. Or as Sen. John Thune glumly conceded, regarding Trump’s walk-back, “I guess it’s probably the best we’re going to be able to get.” His reality is a fixed point. We either work around him, like Thune, or devote useless energy to trying to dissuade him.
Donald Trump believes only what he wants to believe. Although Washington Republicans will surely continue to craft their workarounds, nobody can deny any longer that Trump is willing to destabilize decades-old geopolitical alliances and undermine American national security, doing so chiefly in service of his own delusions. History books will someday have to note that American democracy died largely as a result of one man’s terminal case of confirmation bias.
But here’s the catch. Trump’s refusal to countenance any reality that doesn’t map on to the movie kicking around inside his brain isn’t an affliction that’s limited to Trump. It’s perfectly mirrored in the devotion of the Trump loyalists who suffer from precisely the same disorder. The president’s inability to differentiate between reality and what he wants to be true is the reason his staunchest supporters see him as the patron saint of choose-your-own-ending geopolitics. The bulk of unyielding Trump fans don’t want or need a coherent narrative. Trump’s performance in Helsinki on Monday was heroic because Russia is not the enemy, the “deep state” is. Trump’s walk-back in Washington the next day was heroic because he was man enough to concede that he misspoke and Russia is again the enemy and we trust our national intelligence apparatus. And Trump’s walk-back of his walk-back is also heroic because … Russia is not the enemy, the “deep state” is. Yeah, that’s the ticket. It’s like Build-A-Bear, but for truth…”

The Chances of Donald Trump Being Charged With Crimes Just Increased Exponentially article from PoliticusUSA. –

Trump’s new midterm threat: A trade war smacking voters article from Politico. –
How Trump’s moronic trade war could come back and bite him bigly, especially since it’s hurting his minority of supporters more than anyone else:
“President Donald Trump’s trade wars could become a major political drag for Republicans, with job losses and price increases piling up just as voters head to the polls in November.
Trump jolted markets once again early Friday when he said he’s prepared to impose penalties on some $500 billion in Chinese goods regardless of the consequences that might ensue, economic or political. “Look, I’m not doing this for politics,” the president said on CNBC. “I’m doing this to do the right thing for our country.”
But market analysts, industry experts and economists warn that the economic fallout of the president’s tariffs — those that are already in effect and those he’s threatening to impose — is only going to intensify over the coming months and could reach a peak around election time.
“We’re already hearing complaints now from companies, so by the time we get to the midterms, you’re going to be hearing governors, mayors, Congress complaining about jobs, about cost increases, about problems,” Carlos Gutierrez, the former Commerce secretary under President George W. Bush, told POLITICO. “The question is: Will that be strong enough to offset the idea that we have to get tough on our trading partners, and that our jobs are being stolen overseas?”…”

Donald Trump’s Boast About Being ‘Your Favorite President’ Goes Awry article from The Huffington Post. –
As previously mentioned, the bubble in Trump’s land of delusion burst, and he is nowhere near being the majority’s ‘favorite president:’
“Twitter users pounced on President Donald Trump early Saturday after he boasted about being “your favorite President.”
Trump attempted to dismiss a Friday report in the New York Times that his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen had before the 2016 election secretly taped him discussing a payment to former Playboy model Karen McDougal (with whom Trump is alleged to have had an affair) with the following tweet:
Inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyer’s office (early in the morning) – almost unheard of. Even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client – totally unheard of & perhaps illegal. The good news is that your favorite President did nothing wrong!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 21, 2018
Trump misleadingly claimed it was “inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyer’s office,” when Cohen’s office was in fact raided by the FBI earlier this year as part of a probe into possible campaign finance violations…”
