Misadventures of a minority-elect President 285

Criminal investigation Trump from Pinterest

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 malignant minority-elect president* with a look at some of his more prevalent low lights – and there were many – from 2018, the con artist in the White House wants you to believe the tanking stock market isn’t his fault – when it is, Trump lied – which isn’t surprising given the fact that truth plays absolutely no role in his alternate universe and never comes out of his mouth – when he said Federal workers supported the shut down over his racist border wall, Donald’s delusions are becoming more problematic for him, the impossibility of choosing Trump’s ‘lie of the year’ when his entire illegitimate presidency is predicated on nothing but lies, how the Donald keeps tightening the rope around his own neck – and how his fraudulent business dealings and so-called charity are going to end up destroying him, 6 in 10 people – the majority – believe Donald should be impeached or censured plus much more.

Part 2 in a look at some of the more dubious aspects of Trump’s failed presidency – and you can be sure there will be many more to come before all is said and done.

In his typical full of shit fashion, Trump’s version of his presidency versus reality shows that he is delusional:

As Trump Claims Workers Support Shutdown for Border Wall, Unpaid Federal Employees Set Record Straight With ‘Shutdown Stories’ article from Common Dreams. –
https://www.commondreams.org/news/2018/12/26/trump-claims-workers-support-shutdown-border-wall-unpaid-federal-employees-set

Once again Trump lied to try and justify his delusions of everyone wanting his racist border wall:

“As President Donald Trump on Tuesday claimed without a shred of evidence that “many” furloughed or unpaid federal workers support the ongoing government shutdown because they want “funding for the wall,” public employees and their family members who say they have been harmed by the lapse in government funding took to social media to set the record straight.

“My husband is furloughed due to the Trump shutdown,” a Twitter user named Nancy wrote on Tuesday. “This is a very stressful time, and believe me, my husband does not want that wall.”

The hashtag #ShutdownStories quickly went viral as federal workers shared with the world how they have been affected by the partial government shutdown, which reached its fifth day on Wednesday with no end in sight.

Demanding $5 billion in funding for his racist border wall, Trump has warned the shutdown could last “a very long time.”…”

Trump Takes a Warzone Victory Lap – And Trips article from The Daily Beast. –
https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-takes-a-warzone-victory-lapand-trips

There is a reason that Trump loves his rallies where he can bloviate bull shit and thousands of gullible morons actually take his lies as gospel – but it doesn’t work in front of most Military men and women, who he had to visit as a distraction from his imploding presidency, and, as usual, he only ended up looking foolish and ignorant:

“This should have been a victory lap for a president hailed by the military for letting them loose to attack ISIS, unconstrained by the reluctance and micromanagement of the Obama administration. But President Donald Trump has just announced the U.S. would be leaving the job to Turkey, leaving Kurdish and western coalition allies in harm’s way, and abandoning the field of battle to Syrian dictator Bashar Assad, Russia, and Iran.

“We’re no longer the suckers, folks,” President Donald Trump told a group of about a 100 troops, most of them special operators in an unannounced holiday visit to Al-Asad Airbase, in northern Iraq, adding that other countries can no longer expect the U.S. to do their fighting, unless they are willing to pay for it. “The United States cannot continue to be the policeman of the world,” he said.

He defended his decision to turn over the ISIS fight to Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

“In Syria, Erdogan said he wants to knock out ISIS, whatever’s left, the remnants of ISIS,” Trump told reporters on the trip. “And Saudi Arabia just came out and said they are going to pay for some economic development, which is great; that means we don’t have to pay.”…”

Trump’s Photo-Op In Iraq Backfires As His Approval Rating Among The Military Is At All-Time Low article from PoliticusUSA. –
https://www.politicususa.com/2018/12/26/trump-military-approval-low.html

Yet another act of political theater turns to shit for Trump as his photo-op with the military in Iraq failed – and his approval rating among the military is also failing miserably:

https://www.salon.com/2018/12/27/trumps-lawyers-are-using-the-government-shutdown-to-delay-emoluments-lawsuit/

It appears that the Donald may be using his government shutdown to try and keep his ass out of further trouble for illegally enriching himself for as long as he can – not because of his racist border wall.

https://www.vox.com/2018/12/27/18157448/government-shutdown-trump-poll-approval

Trump’s approval ratings are never that high but he’s still too stupid to see that the only one he’s hurting with the shutdown is himself…

Trump’s Feel-Good Troops Visit Also Featured a Flabbergasting Lie and a Serious Security Breach article from Esquire. –
https://www.esquire.com/news-politics/a25691987/trump-seal-team-5-visit-troops-pay-raise-lie/

In addition to lying repeatedly during his failed photo-op in Iraq, he also committed a serious security breach:

“No good deed goes un-fucked-up. Donald Trump, American president, went to visit U.S. troops stationed in Iraq on the day after Christmas, a piece of normal presidential behavior that was heralded as Very Good Indeed. It was a nice break from the World’s Most Powerful Man’s other holiday festivities, which included tweeting complaints about how he was “all alone” in the White House “(poor me)” because of a government shutdown he single-handedly caused, and telling a gaggle of reporters on Christmas Day (!) that “it’s a disgrace what’s happening in this country, but other than that, I wish everybody a very merry Christmas.”

Granted, it might have been a somewhat desperate move to climb out of the political dungeon after his kamikaze shutdown—which Trump’s lawyers are now attempting to use to their legal advantage—and a disastrous couple of days for the stock market that may or may not have had ties to his Treasury Secretary’s spectacular own-goal of a public statement. Granted, it might have taken two years for him to make the trip, reportedly because, according to a former senior White House official, Trump was previously “afraid of those situations. He’s afraid people want to kill him.” (His predecessor visited troops in a war zone in his first three months in the job.) But he went, and the visit seemed to boost the troops in attendance. They even brought along MAGA gear for him to sign in a possible breach of Pentagon protocol.

Job well done. Right, Newsweek? Ah, well, nevertheless—

President Donald Trump and the White House communications team revealed that a U.S. Navy SEAL team was deployed to Iraq … While the commander-in-chief can declassify information, usually the specific special operations unit is not revealed to the American public, especially while U.S. service members are deployed. Official photographs and videos typically blur the individual faces of special operation forces, due to the sensitive nature of their job. The president’s video posted Wednesday did not shield the faces of special operation forces. Current and former Defense Department officials told Newsweek that information concerning what units are deployed and where is almost always classified and is a violation of operational security…”

https://www.politicususa.com/2018/12/27/trump-losing-shutdown-battle-says-hell-hold-democrats-hostage.html

One of Trump’s latest lies since he’s losing his shutdown battle, is that it’s mainly Democrats who have been furloughed because he shut the government down, and as usual, it’s nothing but total bull shit:

Trump’s amateur shutdown theatrics have exposed a damning truth about his weakness article from The Raw Story. –
https://www.rawstory.com/2018/12/trumps-overly-dramatic-shutdown-theatrics-exposed-damning-truth/

It reveals that in order to deal with Trump you have to treat him like the crying little boy that he is and not cave into his delusional tantrums until he finally pulls his head out of his ass and moves on:

“Despite portraying himself as a great dealmaker, it’s become sadly clear that Donald Trump, overgrown manchild, only knows how to bellow threats and blackmail his opponents. Which is why we’re now six days into a government shutdown over Trump’s demands for border wall funding — money that is largely symbolic, as it falls billions of dollars short of what building the president’s ludicrous and unnecessary wall would actually cost. The entire shutdown makes no sense, except as amateur dramatics from a man who wants to look like a wheeler and dealer but has no real negotiation skills.

Unfortunately, real people are getting hurt to placate the reality TV president’s need to have drama for drama’s sake. Nearly 400,000 federal workers are furloughed and another 400,000 or more are being made to work without pay. The result is that important government work isn’t getting done, causing trash cans to overflow and threatening to slow down access to food assistance and other necessary services.

Trump, however, seemed downright gleeful about the pain he’s causing on Thursday morning:

Trump’s character will be his downfall article from The Dallas Morning News. –
https://www.dallasnews.com/opinion/commentary/2018/12/27/trumps-character-will-downfall

Having characteristics that are corrupt through and through and caring about no one but himself is a toxic combination that will cost Trump bigly:

“For a very long time now, I have been predicting that the Trump presidency will end poorly because character is destiny. I’ve said it so often, I occasionally need to be reminded that I didn’t coin the phrase. The Greek philosopher Heraclitus did when he observed “man’s character is his fate.”

Character is one of those topics, like culture or morality, that everyone strongly supports yet also argues about. When James Q. Wilson, one of the greatest social scientists of the last half-century, turned his scholarly attention to character, many of his colleagues in academia were repulsed. Even though every one of them surely believed in some notion of good character, it was assumed that to talk of it, let alone seek a definition of it or a plan for how to cultivate it, would be an exercise in lending aid and comfort to the moralizers of the right.

But Wilson, a man of both good and conservative character, had a more humble and universal definition than his colleagues might have expected: decency, politeness, self-restraint, commitment, honesty, cooperativeness and the ability to think of others’ well-being.

Weirdly, it’s gotten to the point that when I say President Donald Trump is not a man of good character, I feel like I should preface it with a trigger warning for many of my fellow conservatives…”

Donnie’s delusions are getting the best of him again – though it doesn’t help that he keeps getting his moronic advice from Fox faux News and his other propaganda outlets:

Probe of Trump’s charity could crash ‘like a Mack Truck’ into his real estate empire article from NBC News. –
https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/probe-trump-s-charity-could-crash-mack-truck-his-real-n950576

Decades of rampant fraud in his businesses and so-called charity are going to come roaring back and destroy Donnie:

“The Trump Foundation and the Trump Organization shared much more than President Donald Trump’s last name.

And that’s why, experts said, the New York state investigations into the charity could envelop the president’s namesake business.

“Nothing but overlap here. It all was held so tightly by he and his family members,” NBC News/MSNBC legal analyst Glenn Kirschner, a former federal prosecutor, told NBC News.

“I don’t think there will be any investigative daylight between what the New York state authorities and investigators are looking into with respect to the foundation vs. the organization vs. anything else involving business dealings that have the name ‘Trump’ attached to them,” he said, predicting that the foundation investigation will “crash through (the Trump Organization) like a Mack Truck.”…”

Workers Describe How They’re Trying to Survive the Trump Shutdown article from Mother Jones. –
https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2018/12/workers-describe-how-theyre-trying-to-survive-the-trump-shutdown/

Despite his ignorant delusions that Democrats are the only ones feeling the pain of his moronic shutdown, everyone it affects is paying a price – though he will pay the biggest price of all:

“At a Christmas Day press conference, President Donald Trump told reporters that federal workers had signaled to him that they were happy to be furloughed or working without pay. But as the partial government shutdown enters its fifth day, federal workers, contractors, and others who face an indefinite period without a paycheck have taken to Twitter using the hashtag #ShutdownStories to share how it’s affecting their lives.

After Trump insisted that a bill to fund the government include money for a border wall with Mexico, the government entered a partial shutdown on Friday at midnight, after the Senate failed to reach an agreement to keep the government open. More than 380,000 federal workers have been furloughed, while more than 420,000 are deemed “essential” and working without pay. The partial shutdown affects a number of agencies, including the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security. Low-wage federal contractors who work as janitors, security guards, and cafeteria servers will also be forced to take leave—and will not receive back pay even if Congress signs legislation authorizing it.

One woman described how her husband may have to go without pay in the new year, even though he is a member of the military.
