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:
A look back at his most recent failed week begins today’s misadventures of our malignant minority-elect president* and as usual it was a doozy, using fear mongering and dishonesty to desperately keep control of the U.S. Congress, the lies and deceptions are coming fast and furious from the White House, notice that it’s always someone else’s fault when Trump fucks everything up, Donnie’s delusions are out of control and running rampant, Trump has shown us repeatedly that he is not now nor will he ever be presidential while proving that he truly is illegitimate, the elephant in the national discourse of out-of-control right-wing violence is that our president* is an ignominious bully that needs to be removed from his pulpit and a lot more.

The irony of Trump making shit up to justify his lies and delusions is beyond comical.
Trump’s Closing Argument article from The Atlantic. –
Using his usual fear mongering and dishonesty to desperately try and keep control of the U.S. Congress to further eviscerate the American people isn’t working too well for the most corrupt president* in our history:
“There was a moment, some 45 minutes into President Trump’s rally in Houston on Monday night, when it seemed like he wasn’t really going anywhere. The president was running through some of his standard talking points, but as with many of his more recent speeches, there wasn’t a spark.
And then suddenly there was. Trump launched into the darkest, angriest section of his speech, a furious tirade at Democrats, laced with falsehoods. He ran through several areas—health care, entitlements, supposed voter fraud—but the climax was immigration.
“The crisis on our border right now as we speak is the sole result of Democrat laws and activist Democrat judges that prevent us from returning illegal aliens from Central America and all over the world—it’s called catch and release,” Trump said. “They’re killing and hurting innocent Americans. Democrat immigration policies allow poisonous drugs and MS-13 to pour into our country, and Democrat sanctuary cities release dangerous criminals from jail and into your neighborhoods.”
The passage was full of lies and half-truths—remember when Trump boasted in April that he’d ended catch and release?—and even by the standards of the moment, it shocked to hear Trump accuse Democrats of killing Americans. But immigration was the emotional center of the rally. Throughout his roughly 80 minutes of remarks, Trump kept returning to the theme, warning ominously of a criminal threat from unauthorized immigrants supposedly in league with the Democratic Party…”
This is what Trump’s really talking about when he says he’s a nationalist article from ThinkProgress. –
When Trump talks about being a ‘nationalist,’ he’s actually admitting to be a White Nationalist – as in KKK – and admitting how much of a racist he truly is:

Buried in ‘Hilariously Stupid’ White House Attack on Socialism, An Accidentally Strong Argument for Medicare for All article from Common Dreams. –
Despite the utter bull shit concocted by Trump and the miscreants he calls his administration about the evils of Socialism to serve as a distraction, he and his ilk actually make the case for Socialism:
“From its heavy-handed comparisons between mild-mannered democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders and militant communist revolutionary Mao Zedong to its bizarre assertion that the Scandinavian economic model is a failure due to the high weekly costs of owning a pickup truck in Finland and Sweden (seriously), a White House attack on socialism was roundly mocked almost as soon as it was released on Monday, with informed critics arguing that the report reads as if it was plagiarized from a college freshman with a serious Ayn Rand obsession.
Titled “The Opportunity Costs of Socialism,” the Council of Economic Advisers’ (CEA) new 72-page paper purports to offer an empirical analysis of socialist policies—but what it actually does is make what analysts described as “hilariously stupid” and “intellectually embarrassing” claims accompanied by charts and footnotes that give off the appearance of scholarly diligence.
Characterizing the CEA’s report as a “truly bizarre document,” Vox’s Dylan Matthews notes that the paper’s bibliography contains “a mix of books about mass atrocities in Communist regimes, economics papers on the distortionary effects of taxation, and works by socialists, like the essay Vox published by Jacobin staff writer Meagan Day defending democratic socialism.”
But a look beyond the CEA’s hysterical rants against socialism’s supposedly totalitarian nature reveals that the White House accidentally makes a strong case for Medicare for All, which the paper describes as the “headline American socialist proposal.”…”

Trump Takes Lying To A New Level By Claiming He’ll ‘Totally’ Protect Preexisting Conditions article from PoliticusUSA. –
The desperation to save his profoundly corrupt and ignorant ass after passing a fraudulent tax reform scam and trying to eviscerate Obamacare isn’t working out well for Trump or his GOP enablers is obvious on his Twitter feed as he lied yet again:
Republicans will totally protect people with Pre-Existing Conditions, Democrats will not! Vote Republican.

Trump admits there’s no evidence to back up claim of ‘unknown Middle Easterners’ in migrant caravan article from AOL News. –
Trump admitted he lied about the caravan in Mexico, providing yet more evidence that he’s participating in fear mongering and lies to try and get more of his minions to vote:
“WASHINGTON — The White House can’t provide any evidence to back up a recent claim made by President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence that Middle Easterners are participating in the migrant caravan heading through Mexico to the U.S. When pressed for proof of the claim by Yahoo News, the Department of Homeland Security provided unrelated statistics and the White House did not respond.
The migrant caravan formed this month in Honduras, and has ballooned to include thousands of people who are now making their way through Mexico. Many members of the group say they hope to escape the crushing violence and poverty in Central America and move to the U.S.
On Monday, Trump took to Twitter and suggested the caravan is a national emergency.
“Sadly, it looks like Mexico’s Police and Military are unable to stop the Caravan heading to the Southern Border of the United States. Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in,” Trump wrote…”

Trump Wages Fresh Attack On The Media Hours After CNN Was Targeted By A Terrorist article from PoliticusUSA. –
Every hate filled shit fest Trump calls rallies incites a small portion of his moronic miscreants enough to perpetrate violence against his ‘enemies’ that recognize him as the traitor he is:
“Many in the media believed that today’s disturbing attempted bombings of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Eric Holder, CNN and others would push the president to tone down his rhetoric – at least for a night.
But a short time ago during a campaign rally in Wisconsin, Trump waged a fresh attack on the media and blamed them for the toxic level of politics he has ushered in.
“The media also has a responsibility to set a civil tone and to stop the endless hostility and constant negative and oftentimes false attacks and stories,” said the pathological liar who has incited violence against the free press. “They’ve got to stop.”

THE DANGEROUSLY THIN LINE BETWEEN POLITICAL INCITEMENT AND POLITICAL VIOLENCE article from The New Yorker. –
For years now Trump and his moronic minions have fueled violence, hatred and defamatory conspiracy theories that they ignorantly propagate and believe and now it’s getting more dangerous:
“Many details have yet to emerge about the pipe bombs that targeted Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, John Brennan, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and George Soros. Mercifully, the Secret Service intercepted two of the packages, and none of the others exploded. So far, nobody has come forward claiming to have been the sender. Until that happens, or the F.B.I. nabs the perpetrator, caution should be exercised in attributing responsibility. But a few things are already clear.
One is that all of the targets were people whom Donald Trump has lambasted in his campaign rallies and outpourings on Twitter. They are also people who have been subjected to hateful abuse online by Trump supporters and alt-right groups. (In the case of Soros, as my colleague Eric Lach pointed out earlier, the attacks aren’t limited to the United States, and they go back years.)
We also know that the package to Brennan was sent to CNN, which Trump has repeatedly demonized, calling it “fake news” and “the enemy of the American people.” He has used the same inflammatory language about other news organizations, and, on occasion, he has appeared to encourage his supporters to take matters into their own hands. Last week, at a rally in Montana, he showered praise on a Republican congressman, Greg Gianforte, who, last year, assaulted a reporter for the Guardian. “Any guy that can do a body slam, he’s my kind of—he’s my guy,” Trump said, to loud cheers.
In reacting to the news about the pipe bombs, the White House didn’t mention any of this, of course. “These terrorizing acts are despicable, and anyone responsible will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, said in a statement. Trump initially stayed away from the cameras. Then, on Wednesday afternoon, speaking at a White House meeting on the opioid crisis, he said, “The full weight of our government is being deployed to conduct this investigation and bring those responsible for these despicable acts to justice.” He added, “I just want to tell you that in these times we have to unify. We have to come together and send one very clear, strong, unmistakable message that acts or threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the United States of America.”…”

As Trump Gaslights Entire Nation About Package Bombs, This ‘Will Go Down in History’ as Clear Moment ‘American Democracy Truly at Risk’ article from Common Dreams. –
More on the damage done by Trump’s war on the media and threats while spewing his fake news at his violence inducing rallies:
“Less than 12 hours after praising himself for being on his best behavior as bombs were found in the mail of several targets of his incendiary and conspiratorial ravings—including Congresswomen Maxine Waters, CNN, former President Barack Obama, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton—President Donald Trump cast aside his temporarily subdued facade Thursday morning and fired off a tweet blaming the media for the explosives sent to at least nine separate locations and warning that the press must “clean up its act, fast.”
A very big part of the Anger we see today in our society is caused by the purposely false and inaccurate reporting of the Mainstream Media that I refer to as Fake News. It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description. Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!

Trump responds to synagogue shooting by saying it should have had armed security article from ThinkProgress. –
With Trump it’s always about the weapons and money over the citizenry – and that could easily come back to haunt him:
“President Trump on Saturday responded to a mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania that left multiple people dead by suggesting it should have had armed security to protect its members.
“[Gun laws have] little do do with it,” he said. “If you take a look, if they had protection inside, the results would have been far better. This is a dispute that will always exist, I suspect, but if they had some kind of a protection inside the temple, maybe it could have been a very much different situation. They didn’t. [The gunman] was able to do things that unfortunately he shouldn’t have been able to do.”
