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 malevolent minority-elect president* with his being compromised by Saudi Arabia which helps explain why he doesn’t care about the murdered U.S. Journalist that they appear to be responsible for, pondering why Trump lets the Saudis push him around, Donnie’s lies about his ties to Saudi Arabia keep coming – as usual, the multitude of reasons Trump should be impeached, Trump’s actions reveal he is freaking out because he knows the GOP is going to get their asses handed to them during the midterms and much more.

Trump doesn’t care about the murdered U.S. Journalist for many reasons, including the fact that – just like Russia – he is owned by the Saudis:

Why is President Trump letting the Saudis push him around? article from The Week. –
Probably because of all the dirt they have on him – like Russia – and because of all the money he receives from them.
SAUDI ARABIA WIRES U.S. $100 MILLION AS TRUMP PROCLAIMS M.B.S. INNOCENT ARTICLE from Vanity Fair. –
Yet more evidence of why Trump is letting the Saudis push him around:
“Over the summer, the Saudi Arabian government promised the Trump administration $100 million for the U.S.’s efforts to stabilize parts of Syria liberated from the Islamic State, a coup for Donald Trump, who regularly complains about other countries not coughing up enough money on defense. But despite the pledge, one official involved in Syria policy told The New York Times that it was unclear when, if ever, the money would actually materialize in American bank accounts. But as luck would have it, just this past Tuesday, it did—the same day Secretary of State Mike Pompeo landed in Riyadh to get some answers on the fate of Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi journalist and dissident who entered the kingdom’s consulate in Turkey on October 2 and was never seen again. Some people have dismissed the notion that the two events are connected—“The specific transfer of funds has been long in process and has nothing to do with other events or the secretary’s visit,” Brett McGurk, the U.S. envoy to the coalition fighting the Islamic State, told the Times. But others aren’t so convinced!
“The timing of this is no coincidence,” the American official working on Syria policy told the Times on Tuesday. “In all probability, the Saudis want Trump to know that his cooperation in covering for the Khashoggi affair is important to the Saudi monarch,” Joshua Landis, a professor at the University of Oklahoma, surmised to The Washington Post. “Much of its financial promises to the U.S. will be contingent on this cooperation.” Coincidentally, the $100 million hit the U.S. accounts on the same day Trump stepped up his defense of the kingdom, telling the Associated Press that what we have here is another case of “guilty until proven innocent,” which is exactly what happened with Brett Kavanaugh, who the president believes is “innocent all the way.” Trump also informed his Twitter followers that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman maintains he knows nothing about nothing, and if you can’t trust the word of the guy who imprisoned his own cousins, who can you trust?
Just spoke with the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia who totally denied any knowledge of what took place in their Turkish Consulate. He was with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo…

Donald Trump’s HUGE ‘denial’ double standard article from CNN. –
On the many ways Trump’s lies and alternative facts clash with reality while making him look even more foolish and corrupt:
“(CNN) – On Monday morning, President Donald Trump said he spoke with Saudi Arabia’s King Salman about Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi and left seemingly convinced that the Saudi government played no role in the reporter’s disappearance in Turkey earlier this month.
What convinced Trump — despite lots of evidence that seems to suggest the Saudi government lured Khashoggi, a critic of that government, to their embassy in Istanbul? The king denied it. Very strongly.
“He firmly denies that,” Trump told reporters before heading to Florida and Georgia to inspect damage from Hurricane Michael. “The King firmly denied any knowledge of it.”
Added Trump: “It sounded to me like maybe these could have been rogue killers, who knows. We are going to try to get to the bottom of it very soon. But his was a flat denial.”…”

The Terrible Trump Portrait That Explains Everything article from Truthout. –
Delusions play a major role in Trump’s alternate reality and there are many reasons for that:
“In this business, you eventually become enured to Monday mornings that are the mental equivalent of a car accident. You get used to it, mostly, until a morning comes along that is more cognitively akin to a plane crash on the interstate during rush hour, and you find yourself wondering again if investing in a time-share on Neptune might be an idea whose time has come. That was this past Monday, in the form of a painting that falls somewhere in the shade between “Dogs Playing Poker” and Revelation 6:1-8.
Those watching Lesley Stahl help Donald Trump self-immolate during their “60 Minutes” interview on Sunday night spotted it first, right there on the wall above the vat of Starburst candies: a pastel creamsicle nightmare rendering of Presidents Abraham Lincoln, Calvin Coolidge, Theodore Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush sharing a drink and a hearty Republican belly laugh with The Donnybrook himself.
Cue the squealing tires and shattered safety glass; I saw this thing before I could so much as blow on my first cup of Monday morning coffee, and I’m still trying to come to grips with the experience.
The internet had a field day, of course. Before Tuesday even had a chance to put its pants on, Twitter was bursting with Photoshop jobs that turned Missouri artist Andy Thomas’s annihilation of time and history into a legitimate cultural phenomenon…”

Beto O’Rourke Makes Brilliant Case For Why Democrats Should Move Forward With Impeachment article from PoliticusUSA. –
There are a multitude of reasons the piece of shit currently in the White House should be impeached, and he gives some good examples:
Some Republicans running in competitive congressional races have shied away from taking any bold positions against Donald Trump – I’m talking to you, Sens. Joe Manchin and Joe Donnelly – but Beto O’Rourke is not one of them.
During a CNN town hall on Thursday night, the Texas congressman running to unseat Sen. Ted Cruz made a brilliant case for why Democrats should move forward with impeachment proceedings against the president.
“There is enough there to proceed,” O’Rourke said before ticking off examples of how Trump has committed impeachable offenses.
When asked by CNN’s Dana Bash if he’s changed his mind after saying he’d vote to impeach President Trump this summer, O’Rourke replied: “I haven’t” #TexasTownHall https://t.co/29rQpKYtsa pic.twitter.com/ULowpM65KX

Donald Trump and the Power of Disappointment article from Medium. –
Trump thought being president* would earn him respect, but little did he know how wrong he was as most of the world still believes he’s indeed illegitimate:
“The world was laughing at Donald Trump. He had taken the stage at the United Nations in September and opened with one of his signature Trumpian boasts, bragging that he “has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country.” And the world’s diplomats laughed, their guffaws migrating across the room as the U.S. president’s remarks were translated into the diplomatic corps’ native languages.
It was, to this president, his worst nightmare. Donald Trump has always feared being the punch line?—?and he’s spent much of his life being the butt of jokes from the elite, the fancy Manhattanites who still see the brash developer as a florid, classless braggart. His presidential run was fueled to some degree by the infamous White House Correspondents’ Dinner in 2011, where President Obama led Washington’s elite in laughter at Trump’s expense, needling his hit TV show, The Apprentice, which had reinvigorated Trump’s stalled business empire and rebranded the bankruptcy king as a business savant. The black tie–clad newsmakers and journalists laughed at Obama’s mere ironic mention of Trump’s “credentials and breadth of experience.”
Trump’s embarrassment at the event, the New York Times reported, “accelerated” his efforts to gain respect in Washington, D.C., and his subsequent presidential campaign was “driven by a deep yearning sometimes obscured by his bluster and bragging: a desire to be taken seriously.”
Plenty of people have wanted the presidency over the years. Bill and Hillary Clinton each spent decades in pursuit. Men like John Kerry, John McCain, and Joe Biden have all reached for the ring on multiple occasions?—?but not since Lyndon Johnson has anyone needed the presidency as much as Donald Trump…”

Tough guy Donald Trump article from Salon. –
On the irony of the world’s biggest pussy glorifying violence against reporters:
“Our president held a political rally in Montana this week. In between screaming “fake news!” at the fenced-in media and leading attendees in the “lock her up!” chant, Trump decided that a Thursday night in October, less than three weeks before the midterm elections, was the perfect time to tell his adoring audience what a great fighter he is.
He found himself in reliably red Montana, which he carried by 20 points in 2016, having to give a rally to support the Republican candidate for Senate, Matt Rosendale, because he is running two points behind the Democratic incumbent, Jon Tester, according to the latest polls.
He was also there to support the campaign of Republican Congressman Greg Gianforte, who is running for re-election. You will perhaps recall Gianforte as the congressional candidate who slammed a reporter for the Guardian to the ground and repeatedly punched him in the face in June of 2017, reportedly because he was “sick and tired” of the reporter asking him questions. “Any guy who can do a body slam, he’s my candidate, he’s my guy,” Trump told his Montana crowd, to applause and loud screams of approval.
During the week his White House has been consumed with finding some way to excuse the apparent murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi by the Saudis in their embassy in Istanbul, Turkey, Trump decided now was a good time to celebrate the only member of Congress who has been convicted of violently assaulting a journalist who was just doing his job, covering a political campaign (Gianforte was sentenced to a six-month suspended sentence, 20 hours of anger management counseling, 40 hours of community service, and was assessed $385 in court costs and fined $4,464.97)…”

Adam Schiff Just Put Trump To Shame On Khashoggi Murder Cover-Up article from PoliticusUSA. –
More proof that Trump is mentally unfit and too corrupt to hold office as our illegitimate minority-elect president*:
“Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that he doesn’t buy the Saudi story on Jamal Khashoggi’s murder, which is something that the Saudi royal family owned Trump will never say.
NEW: Rep. Adam Schiff on the death of Jamal Khashoggi: “This ought to be a relationship-altering event for the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, that we ought to suspend military sales, we ought to suspend certain security assistance” https://t.co/GlcWTIu29g #ThisWeek pic.twitter.com/1bSNpIRmby
— ABC News Politics (@ABCPolitics) October 21, 2018
Schiff said on ABC’s This Week, “I got a detailed briefing from the intelligence community about what they know, what they can tell us at this point, and while I can’t go into the substance of it, I can tell you that I don’t find this Saudi account credible at all. There’s simply no way that they dispatched a team this large and that Khashoggi engaged in some kind of brawl unless he was fighting for his life, but I think we can see where this is headed. Ultimately, the president is going to accept the crown prince’s denials, but it’s hard for me to imagine that these orders would have been carried out without the knowledge of the crown prince. I think this ought to be a relationship-altering event for the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, that we ought to suspend military sales, we ought to suspend certain security assistance, and we ought to impose sanctions on any of those who were directly involved in this murder.”…”
