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:
Why some of his moronic minions are losing their faith in his treasonous ass begins today’s misadventures of our malignant minority-elect president* as more of his lies and guilt come floating to the surface, how the Donald just can’t stop confessing – and committing – his crimes, why Trump’s picture pops up repeatedly when trillions of people search for ‘idiot’ on Google, yet another cohort flips on the Donald and agrees to spill the beans, evidence of Trump’s guilt keeps piling up and there appears to be no end in sight, Donnie’s screwed since all of his financial dealings are now under scrutiny and so much more.

Trump threatens to make military build his wall in latest meltdown article from The Raw Story. –
It’s sad that a moron has to take to Twitter to spew his vitriolic delusions – while inadvertently digging himself a deeper hole he won’t be able to slither out of – because no one wants to build his farcical wall that he swore Mexico would pay for:
….People do not yet realize how much of the Wall, including really effective renovation, has already been built. If the Democrats do not give us the votes to secure our Country, the Military will build the remaining sections of the Wall. They know how important it is!

Trump Can’t Stop Confessing article from The Atlantic. –
How an imbecilic president* whose corruption is nothing short of astonishing keeps implicating himself with his words and his deeds:
“Donald Trump can’t stop telling on himself.
Just two years into his presidency, the New York real-estate mogul turned politician faces at least two separate criminal investigations, while half a dozen former advisers, including his former campaign chair, deputy campaign chair, national-security adviser, foreign-policy adviser, and personal attorney have all pleaded guilty to or been convicted of serious crimes. That’s even more remarkable when you consider that the American legal system makes white-collar crimes difficult to prove, by making guilt conditional on a defendant’s state of mind, a notoriously high standard.
Nevertheless, Trump has done his best to ensure that we all know what he’s thinking, even as his legal peril grows. Last Friday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York claimed in a filing that Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, had been directed during the campaign to pay hush money to women who claimed to have had affairs with the president. Those payments, according to the filing, were laundered through shell corporations and reimbursed by the president’s private company. Effectively, the president’s own Justice Department accused him of ordering his personal attorney to commit a felony.
The standard for criminal violations of campaign-finance laws, though, turns on “knowing and willful” violations of those laws. So the president would have had to know that it was illegal, and ordered Cohen to make the payments anyway…”

When people search Google for ‘idiot’ Trump’s picture pops up repeatedly because the majority of this country and the world all agree:
“Google CEO Sundar Pichai was questioned by the House Judiciary Committee today. Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren (D, CA-19) asked him why an image search for “idiot” brings up pictures of Donald Trump.
Pichai went into detail about artificial intelligence and scraping and daily updating of search results.
Lofgren replied that his answer indicated there was not some “little man behind a curtain” manipulating results to make Trump look stupid.
No, it’s not one man, it’s actually trillions of users associating the so-called president with that word…”

Trump issues an ominous and dangerous warning about the consequences of impeachment article from The Daily Kos. –
Trump seems to think ‘the people’ – his diminishing base of moronic minions – would save him if he’s impeached, but as with most everything else he does, that belief is based on delusions:
“With Democrats now taking over the House, and new revelations from the prosecutions of President Donald Trump’s inner circle coming out by the day, talk is inevitably turning toward the possibility the president could be impeached before his term is out.
But Trump himself insists he’s not worried about that in a new interview with Reuters in the Oval Office.
“It’s hard to impeach somebody who hasn’t done anything wrong and who’s created the greatest economy in the history of our country,” Trump said. “I’m not concerned, no. I think that the people would revolt if that happened,” he said.
This notion of a pro-Trump “revolt” in the event of impeachment is a common theme among the president’s allies. In August, Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani used the exact same words…”

The National Enquirer Flips On Donald Trump In Playmate Hush Money Scandal article from The Huffington Post. –
Yet another feather to put in Trump’s treasonous cap as another of his cohorts flips on him and spills the beans:
“The parent company of the National Enquirer has admitted to federal prosecutors that “its principal purpose” in paying former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal $150,000 ahead of the 2016 election was to “suppress” her story about an alleged affair with Donald Trump for the explicit purpose of improving the then-candidate’s chances of victory.
The decision, the company also said, was made in direct “cooperation, consultation and concert with one or more” members of the Trump campaign.
At the bottom of a Wednesday press release touting the sentencing of former Trump personal lawyer Michael Cohen, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York revealed that it had recently reached a “non-prosecution agreement” with American Media Inc., which owns tabloids including the National Enquirer.
As part of the deal, AMI offered “substantial and important assistance” in federal prosecutors’ investigation into payments made to McDougal, prosecutors said…”
‘You and your spawn are going to jail’: Trump mocked for trying to tweet his way out of Cohen’s felony allegations article from The Raw Story. –

Trump just severely undermined his own defense against accusations that he broke campaign finance laws article from Alternet. –
One would think that Trump would use his right to remain silent but – to his detriment – he isn’t capable of doing that:
“In a new interview with Fox News on Thursday, President Donald Trump casually undermined his sole apparent defense against charges of criminally violating campaign finance law.
He’s at risk of such charges after his former employee, Michael Cohen, was sentenced to three years in prison, in part for making hush payments during the campaign on Trump’s behalf in violation of the law. Cohen said that he made the payments at Trump’s direction and in coordination with him, implicating the president in the crime.
Thursday morning, Trump tried to distance himself from the crimes on Twitter, writing of Cohen: “He was a lawyer and he is supposed to know the law. It is called ‘advice of counsel,’ and a lawyer has great liability if a mistake is made. That is why they get paid.”
Legal experts point out that pointing to the advice of counsel can be a defense against some crimes. But it’s hard for Trump to stick to a script — and in the Fox News interview aired broadcast later in the day, Trump significantly undercut this potential defense. He said that Cohen actually didn’t do much legal work and was actually provided more public relations services…”

Trump increasingly isolated as aides leave, friends flip and investigations advance article from The Los Angeles Times. –
The walls in Donnie’s alternate reality are crashing down and he can’t handle it:
“It was almost noon Thursday when a Marine suddenly appeared outside the West Wing doors, a sign that President Trump had belatedly reported to the Oval Office.
For the second day in a row, the president had been in the White House residence all morning, fuming about federal investigations that have moved closer to him — and are likely to get worse.
His former confidant, attorney Michael Cohen, and other once-stalwart supporters have flipped, becoming witnesses for a Justice Department he has struggled to bend to his will. Prosecutors also secured the cooperation of American Media Inc., the tabloid publisher that routinely helped Trump muzzle bad stories and target his enemies.
The result is Trump has become increasingly isolated as he enters what may be the most difficult stretch of his presidency, one laden with political and legal dangers…”

Trump-aligned super PAC draws prosecutors’s scrutiny, too article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
Donnie is totally screwed since ALL of his finances – which account for a lot of criminal activities – are now under scrutiny:
“Donald Trump is under investigation. Trump’s business is under investigation. Trump’s campaign operation is under investigation. Trump’s transition team is under investigation. Trump’s foundation is under investigation. Trump’s inaugural committee is under investigation.
Trump’s former campaign chairman and deputy chairman have already pleaded guilty to multiple felonies. Trump’s former White House National Security Advisor and Trump’s former personal attorney have both pleaded guilty to felonies, and are either awaiting sentencing or are already headed to prison.
Meanwhile, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is ongoing, and by some measures, the probe appears to be intensifying.
Oh, and did I mention that the Trump-aligned super PAC is facing prosecutors’ scrutiny, too?…”
