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 utter disdain for the American public since the only thing he’s ever cared about is enriching himself at our expense, Donnie keeps getting busted in more lies and crimes – which just keep growing – as his desperation over his impending implosion continues, how Donnie flunks the presidential leadership test – over and over and over, Donald has dropped any pretext of being innocent in his ongoing Russia scandal, choosing instead to keep proving how guilty he is, the many signs that Trump’s mental deterioration is growing, having his ass handed to him during the 2018 midterms has revealed what the majority of us have known all along – that he is nothing but a profoundly corrupt, sad and incompetent joke that has no business occupying the White House, the combination of confession and projection in Trump’s freak outs over Mueller and much more.

The only thing Trump cares about is enriching himself illegally as our illegitimate president* and pursuing his despotic delusions of grandeur since he thrives on corrupt power and greed.

The only things Trump knows how to do are lie and deceive and his latest denials of knowing the moron that is stupid enough to try and stop his Russia investigation offers yet more evidence of that:
When obstruction of justice is glaringly obvious article from The Week. –
The list of crimes committed by our treasonous president* just keeps growing:
“Jeff Sessions is out as attorney general, replaced by a bootlicking Trump stooge named Matt Whitaker. Given that President Trump openly said on national television in 2017 that he fired then-FBI Director James Comey to try to stop the Russia investigation, it’s a safe bet that acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker — like Robert Bork before him — will be the cat’s paw Trump will use to halt or impede Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
This would be obstruction of justice.
Let’s examine Whitaker’s career up to now. Before serving as Sessions’ chief of staff, he was a U.S. attorney in Iowa from 2004 to 2009. He mounted a campaign for Democrat Tom Harkin’s Senate seat, and lost to Republican Joni Ernst. Afterwards, he joined the board of a company called World Patent Marketing. What did this company do? The Washington Post reports:
The company was shut down earlier this year amid an FTC probe that accused it of being a sham group that cheated inventors by falsely promising them help with marketing their ideas in exchange for exorbitant fees. “For the last three years, Defendants have operated an invention-promotion scam that has bilked thousands of consumers out of millions of dollars,” the agency alleged in a recently unsealed court filing. “In truth and in fact, Defendants fail to fulfill almost every promise they make to consumers.” [The Washington Post]…”

‘You Ask a Lot of Stupid Questions’: Latest Attack on Free Press as Trump Threatens to Strip Credentials of Journalists Who Don’t Show Him ‘Respect’ article from Common Dreams. –
Poor Donald can’t handle the pressure of his imploding presidency and it’s beginning to take him down further:
“President Donald Trump continued his ugly attacks on the press during a media gaggle on the White House lawn on Friday morning, smearing one reporter as a “loser,” denouncing another CNN journalist’s perfectly reasonable question about the Russia investigation as “stupid,” and imperiously threatening to revoke the credentials of members of the media who don’t show him sufficient “respect.”
After CNN reporter Abby Phillip asked Trump whether he wants newly appointed Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker to “rein in” Special Counsel Robert Mueller—an idea Whitaker has repeatedly endorsed—the president called the question “stupid” and fumed that Phillip asks “a lot of stupid questions.”
“What a stupid question that is. What a stupid question. But I watch you a lot, you ask a lot of stupid questions,” Trump sneered.

At Long Last, Donald Trump Knows True Fear article from Truthout. –
Trump’s treason and other high crimes and misdemeanors are catching up to him and he knows it:
“UPDATE: Saturday, November 10, 2018: A number of late results across the country have broken for Democratic candidates. When all is said and done, they will pick up a total of between 35 and 40 House seats, representing “the biggest Democratic gain in the House since the post-Watergate election of 1974” according to The Washington Post. The Senate and House races in Florida have gone to a recount, and Stacey Abrams in Georgia is standing strong against Brian Kemp’s brazen attempts to steal the race in broad daylight. In short, the 2018 midterm elections are not over, but the Democrats fared far better than the early wisdom suggested.

Why and how Donald Trump flunks the presidential leadership test article from Alternet. –
It’s very simple really: he flunks the presidential leadership because he’s a total failure – and definitely not presidential in any way, just a major fraud who has committed a litany of crimes against the U.S.
Here’s what is next for Mueller’s Russia probe as Trump attempts to obstruct justice – again article from Alternet. –
Trump has dropped any pretext of being innocent, choosing instead to keep proving how guilty he actually is:
“Throughout the 2016 campaign and into Donald Trump’s first weeks as president, there were numerous very serious D.C. media people who were fully prepared for Trump to pivot into behaving like an actual dignified president rather than an unhinged loudmouth by way of a garishly costumed Batman villain. Suffice it to say, the pivot never happened. However, Trump has engaged in a completely different kind of pivot in the aftermath of the midterm elections.
Based on last week’s events, Trump has disposed of any remaining pretense of innocence. In other words, before the election, Trump at least tried to pretend he wasn’t a disruptive-slash-destructive chaos agent. But now, in defeat, Trump’s putting it all out there, literally daring the incoming Democratic House to do something about it. Look no further than his press conference the day after the election for proof that he just doesn’t give a flying rip about whether he looks guilty as hell.
His primary source of agita continues to be Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s cyberattack against the 2016 U.S. election. Trump used to at least pretend he wasn’t obstructing the special counsel’s process, but now the mask is off. With the firing of Jeff Sessions, the stripping of Russia duties from Rod Rosenstein and, especially, the potentially illegal and unconstitutional appointment of Matt Whitaker as acting attorney general, Trump is doing what he has to do to save his own ass. And he doesn’t care who knows it.
If Trump still cared about appearances, he never would have made this move with Sessions, Rosenstein and Whitaker. At the very least, he would’ve fired Sessions, then allowed the normal succession process take place, per the law. The Trump White House, on the other hand, has taken the position that the Federal Vacancy Reform Act (FVRA) allows the president to appoint anyone he wants to take over attorney general duties while a permanent replacement is being confirmed. Numerous arguments have been made, however, that U.S. Code Section 508 supersedes the FVRA, since the former is more specific than the language in the latter. Furthermore, the FVRA says nothing about what happens if a cabinet official is fired, as Sessions clearly was. There’s also an argument, as presented by George Conway, Kellyanne Conway’s husband, suggesting that Trump’s appointment of Whitaker is unconstitutional…”

Reality discredits fraud allegations from Trump, Florida’s Scott article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
Whenever Trump and his ilk dubiously claim ‘fraud,’ rest assured that the only fraud involved is the one they’re trying to perpetrate:
“Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) aren’t the only ones who’ve peddled election-related conspiracy theories – Rudy Giuliani and Sen. Marco Rubio (R) have, alas, dipped their toes in the same misguided waters – but the president and the governor have been more aggressive than most and have done the most damage to their credibility.
Let’s start with Scott, who has a dwindling lead against Sen. Bill Nelson (D), and who dispatched Florida law enforcement officials to find evidence to back up his ideas. That didn’t turn out well.
State election monitors in Broward County told The Miami Herald on Saturday that they’ve seen no evidence of voter fraud. And Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg, a Democrat, said he has seen no evidence of voter fraud in the county. In addition, the state agency tasked with overseeing elections said it is not investigating any claims of voter fraud.
It’s almost as if the governor publicly raised the prospect of “rampant fraud” as part of a panic-induced public-relations scheme, rather than based on meaningful proof of wrongdoing…”

Trump Goes Berserk, Says Mueller is ‘Nuts’ and a ‘Disgrace’ article from PoliticusUSA. –
Contrary to Trump’s delusions, the only thing that is ‘nuts’ and a ‘disgrace’ is him:
“President Donald Trump on Thursday tore into Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, saying that investigators have “gone absolutely nuts” and that they are “a disgrace” to the country.
“The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess. They have found no collusion and have gone absolutely nuts,” Trump tweeted. “They are screaming and shouting at people, horribly threatening them to come up with the answers they want. They are a disgrace to our Nation and don’t care how many lives the(y) ruin.”
He then focused his ire on Mueller, a former FBI director. He once again accused Mueller of having conflicts of interest, but provided no evidence to support his accusation. Mueller is a lifelong Republican and served under both George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
“These are Angry People, including the highly conflicted Bob Mueller, who worked for Obama for 8 years. They won’t even look at all of the bad acts and crimes on the other side,” he said. “A TOTAL WITCH HUNT LIKE NO OTHER IN AMERICAN HISTORY!”…”

What’s The Link Between Trump Freakout And Mueller Investigation? article from Crooks and Liars. –
As noted by MSNBC, it’s always a combination of confession and projection:
“On Morning Joe, there was a lot of speculation as to the link between the Mueller investigation and Trump’s unhinged behavior this week.
“This investigation will continue until Bob Mueller has what he needs to make a case, or to present a case that nothing happened, that the president had nothing to do with interference and the country can move on from it,” Willie Geist said. “But everything we see on twitter from the president, everything we saw yesterday, once again, is just is noise and it’s noise that Bob Mueller is not listening to.”
“The question, Willie, is whether you can draw a direct line between the president’s behavior and what he knows that the rest of us don’t know,” Heidi Przybyla said.
“Because like Mika said, they’ve had those questions, they’ve had those questions for a while. Why aren’t they answering them? We also know that there may be other sealed indictments. What does the president and his team know about potential indictments against people in his administration and maybe even in his inner circle? And you can definitely draw a direct line between his tweets and his meetings with his lawyers. We know he had a 90-minute meeting wednesday with his lawyers…”
