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 delusions – yet again – about his approval ratings which are in the toilet despite his tweets, why the Donald could easily go down in history as a bigger traitor than Benedict Arnold, how Donnie’s presidency is like a bad drug trip, Donald is now – officially – an unindicted co-conspirator, the remainder of Trump’s illegitimate term is going to be rough for him, on the results of Trump’s lie about ‘draining the swamp’ since all he has done is made it more corrupt, the list of crimes committed by our treasonous president* keeps growing despite his lies to try and avoid accountability, Donnie can’t seem to grasp the fact that his ass is in deep shit, Trump’s treason trail keeps expanding as yet more collusion links back to him and much more.
Trump Demands America’s Love And A 75% Approval Rating article from PoliticusUSA. –
Donald’s delusions about his miserable popularity and non-existent approval ratings reveal how out of touch with reality he is:
Without the phony Russia Witch Hunt, and with all that we have accomplished in the last almost two years (Tax & Regulation Cuts, Judge’s, Military, Vets, etc.) my approval rating would be at 75% rather than the 50% just reported by Rasmussen. It’s called Presidential Harassment!

White House Reportedly Can’t Plan for How to Deal With Mueller Because Trump Is So Nuts article from Splinter News. –
Trump is so loony that he actually has no idea his profoundly corrupt actions and tweets keep tightening the noose around his neck.
Here’s why Donald Trump could easily go down in history as a worse traitor than Benedict Arnold article from The Raw Story. –
Hmmm… probably because he is, and because all his crooked cronies keep flipping on his profoundly corrupt and ignorant ass.
A Presidency on Drugs article from The Nation. –
How having a fake president* manipulating the news cycles with his war on fake news is like a bad drug trip:
“I took my first hit of speed in 1970 during my freshman year in college. That little white pill—Dexedrine—was a revelation. It made whatever I was doing absolutely fascinating. Amphetamine sharpened my focus and banished all appetites except a hunger for knowledge. I spent that entire night writing 35 pages of hand-scrawled notes about a 35-page article by the philosopher Ludwig Feurbach, thereby convincing the professor who would become my adviser and mentor that I was absolutely fascinating.
Speed was definitely not a respectable drug in those days. I bought mine from a seedy hippie who hung out on the edge of campus with some of my edgier friends. My college was probably one of the few in the country whose infirmary actually prescribed Dexedrine for its students, presumably to keep us from buying it from guys like him.
Nowadays, respectable doctors all over the country prescribe speed for people with ADHD, under brands like Adderall and Ritalin. It does for them what it did for me—makes whatever they’re doing fascinating, allowing them to focus for many hours at a time. My students now don’t have to buy it on the street. They can cadge (or buy) it from friends with prescriptions. I sometimes wonder whether they think they have a choice about this, or whether it’s considered almost a dereliction of duty to write their papers without a chemical assist.
Of course, speed had its ugly side, and I’m hardly recommending it as a cure for boring classes or a boring life. Coming down is horrible, the prelude often to a nasty, gray depression. Campus lore said it intensified menstrual cramps and I believed it. (When you’re depressed, it’s certainly easy to believe that this month’s cramps are worse than the last batch.) In any case, I quickly realized that I liked the stuff far too much for my own good. I learned to drink coffee instead…”
Trump Melts Down As Study Reveals His Rallies Hurt Republican Candidates article from PoliticusUSA. –
Donnie is certifiable if he honestly believes his stupid ass actually helped Republicans – aside from the states where voters have repeatedly shown how stupid they are:
Does the Fake News Media ever mention the fact that Republicans, with the very important help of my campaign Rallies, WON THE UNITED STATES SENATE, 53 to 47? All I hear is that the Open Border Dems won the House. Senate alone approves judges & others. Big Republican Win!

How the Donald always tries to take credit for it when it’s up but not when it dips drastically due to his ignorance and/or criminal actions.
Rex Tillerson Resurfaces And Confirms That Trump Belongs In Jail article from PoliticusUSA. –
The only thing Trump knows how to do is break the law:
“Former Sec. of State Rex Tillerson made a rare public appearance and said that Trump consistently tried to break the law and do illegal things.
Tillerson said the two had starkly different styles and did not share a common value system.
“So often, the president would say here’s what I want to do and here’s how I want to do it and I would have to say to him, Mr. President I understand what you want to do but you can’t do it that way. It violates the law,” Tillerson said…”

Prosecutors Say Trump Directed Michael Cohen To Commit Crimes article from PoliticusUSA. –
Donnie is guilty as hell and he and the whole world knows it, and his already failed illegitimate presidency will never be the same:

THE MICHAEL COHEN SENTENCING MEMOS ARE DAMNING FOR TRUMP article from The New Yorker. –
The remainder of our illegitimate president’s* term in the White House is going to be miserable for him, especially if he’s removed from office before his term is up.
‘Totally clears the president,’ tweets Trump of new filings. Not so fast, says Twitter article from The Daily Kos. –
Trump is stupid enough to believe that his delusional tweet clears his name when nothing could be farther from the truth:
“A whole bunch of court filings landed in the public eye Friday afternoon: First, both Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the Southern District of New York dropped sentencing documents against Michael Cohen, then Mueller dropped his latest in the case against Perjurin’ Paul Manafort.
Donald Trump, who we already know doesn’t read, quickly got ahead of the situation with this wholly fictional tweet of gratitude for the full exoneration he apparently thinks he’s just gotten.
Totally clears the President. Thank you!

Donnie never had any room to claim ‘no collusion’ despite his endless tormented Twitter tirades but now he has no plausible deniability left.
Robert Mueller should charge Trump with committing a crime only a president can commit article from Salon. –
Contrary to the Don’s delusions, he is not above the law:
“The number of times Trump has used Twitter to corruptly influence the administration of justice is so large, it’s hardly even worth recounting this week’s Trump tweet storm. It seems that every time his little fingers fly across the keys of his iPhone, he commits another felony. This week, it was obstruction of justice and witness tampering when Trump simultaneously tweeted out an attack on his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, and praised his former campaign adviser, Roger Stone for saying that he would “never testify against Trump.” Trump’s tweets may have crossed a legal line, according to many legal commentators, including Norman Eisen, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution who was quoted in the Washington Post.
“It comes very close to the statutory definition of witness tampering,” Eisen told the Post. “It’s a mirror image of the first tweet, only he’s praising a witness for not cooperating with the implication of reward. We’re so used to President Trump transgressing norms in his public declarations, but he may have crossed the legal line.”
The commentariat has been obsessed for the last two days with whether or not Trump broke the law with his tweets on Monday. Op-Ed pages and cable news desks have echoed Trump’s comments on whether Mohammad bin Salman ordered the assassination of Jamal Kashoggi: Maybe he did, and maybe he didn’t!
Obstruction of justice, it turns out, is difficult to prove. Is one tweet enough? Two? Six? See what I mean? Put so much as a single toe into that rabbit hole, and you’re quickly sucked in. What about repeatedly calling the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller a “witch hunt?” Did it count when Trump called for the end of the Russia investigation? How about the way Trump treated Sessions, criticizing him again and again for recusing himself, then firing him? Was it obstruction when Trump asked Comey to go easy on Michael Flynn? Remember when he asked Comey for “loyalty” over steaks one night in the White House? Just the two of them sitting there in a little private dining room in the West Wing . . . Comey demurred, and Trump fired in a few days later…”

The Dangerous ‘New Phase’ for Donald Trump article from The Atlantic. –
With Democrats taking over the U.S. House of Representatives in less than a month – coupled with all the evidence showing our unindicted co-conspirator’s guilt – life is going to get much worse in Trumpland as his already failed presidency continues spinning out of control.
The false claims that Trump keeps repeating article from The Washington Post. –
Trump’s list of lies just keeps growing exponentially with each passing day as does his desperation to slither out of the hole he has dug himself.
Donald Trump And Robert Mueller: The End Game article from The Huffington Post. –
A look at the list of crimes committed by Donnie and his ilk at his demand and how his failed presidency could end because of it:
“At several previous points in Donald Trump’s presidency, it looked as if he could not possibly survive to the end of his four-year term. Yet Trump always managed to change the subject, his public shrugged, Republicans continued to support him, and Trump rolled merrily on.
This time could be different. The stage is now set for what appears to be an inexorable path to impeachment or resignation.
Let’s review what special counsel Robert Mueller has on Trump. Based on the most recent combined filings of the special counsel and prosecutors at the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan, the evidence is piling up to document the following:
1. In September 2015, Trump personally approved the plan of personal lawyer and longtime fixer Michael Cohen to make high-level contacts with the Russian government to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. Cohen, according to Mueller’s seven-page memo, continued to talk with “Individual-1” ? Donald Trump ? well into the campaign. Even after Trump was nominated, these conversations continued, and with Trump’s full knowledge…”

Mueller and Prosecutors Likely Have Evidence Of Trump Money Laundering and Bank Fraud article from PoliticusUSA. –
I’m sure they have a lot more evidence than that but the party hasn’t begun yet:
“The campaign finance felonies that Trump directed indicate that prosecutors and Mueller may also have evidence of money laundering and bank fraud.
Frank Figliuzzi said on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports:
We’re seeing an evolution of the defense strategy which has gone from, I didn’t do it to I might have done it but it’s not illegal to the next step being, I did it, and it might be illegal, but I’m the sitting president, and you can’t touch me. The problem with evidence that you directed a felony is that you’re involved in other crimes. People who say, this is just about giving money to women to be quiet don’t understand the gravity of directing money through money laundering, through bank fraud, through wire fraud and then campaign finance violations and possibly using the Trump Organization as a slush fund to support the campaign. At some point, he can no longer say, I didn’t get it because Mueller or the southern district of New York may likely have evidence that shows him directing the money laundering, directing the bank fraud, the establishment of fictitious corporations. At that point, he can no longer claim ignorance.

Here’s the solution to the Democrats’ impeachment dilemma article from Alternet. –
On using the lessons of history to remove Benedict Donald and holding him accountable once he resigns or is removed from office:
“If President Donald Trump is brought down, it will be Republicans who finally seal his fate, not Democrats.
No matter how much evidence is uncovered by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the U.S. attorney from the Southern District of New York, the New York Attorney General, or any other prosecutors who happen to be investigating the president — it’s almost certain that impeachment is the only viable way the government could respond. While a president may be indictable, even critics of Trump acknowledge that allowing charges against Trump to go to trial before he is removed or his term is ended poses serious constitutional challenges that may be insurmountable, as former Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal has argued.
But while Democrats hold the power to impeach Trump in the House of Representatives, they’ll need at least 20 Republican senators to join with all the Democratic senators to successfully remove him from office. As of now, that appears to be a steep hill to climb.
Conservative Trump critic Jennifer Rubin argued that this places Democrats in a troubling “impeachment dilemma.”…”
