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 the many reasons we must hold him accountable for his profoundly corrupt and failed presidency, Trump’s lies and other blusterous bull shit were on full display at his latest rally in Michigan where the throng of moronic minions were stupid enough to believe him, Donnie’s lies about being totally exonerated have completely unraveled, the fact that the Donald doesn’t want the Mueller report released speaks volumes as to what information is probably in it – which doesn’t bode well for him despite his lies about being exonerated by Barr’s failed cover-up plus much more.
Barr Is a Distraction. We Must Insist on the Moral Indictment of Trump. article from Truthout. –
The deceptive conclusions issued by the slime ball Trump calls his Attorney General are a dubious distraction from the corrupt, failed presidency of his for which we must start holding him accountable.

The Donald might be a little less impotent – not to mention less of an absolute joke – were he to actually think before he spoke or tweeted his ignorance for all to see:

Trump Screams During Psychotic Rally: Dems ‘Defrauding The Public With Ridiculous Bullsh*t’ article from Crooks and Liars. –
It only took 90 seconds for dumb ass Donald to spew his first lie, and less time than that to prove that he is totally mentally unfit to occupy the office he holds:
It took Trump 90 seconds to lie about the ‘Mueller report’ during Michigan speech article from Vox. –
More than two thirds of this country want the Mueller report disclosed and don’t believe his lies about being exonerated – he’s not, but the small fraction of moronic minions that were stupid enough to attend his ‘rally’ in Michigan actually believe his blusterous horse shit:
“Less than two minutes into President Donald Trump’s speech in Grand Rapids, Michigan, he lied about special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report.
“The collusion delusion is over,” Trump said on Thursday night, in his first speech since Attorney General Bill Barr announced some of Mueller’s key conclusions on Sunday. “The special counsel completed its report and found no collusion and no obstruction.”

It is not true that the special counsel exonerated Trump of obstruction of justice. While we still can’t say for sure what the special counsel said — all we know of Mueller’s final report came by way of a brief summary of it sent to Congress on Sunday by Barr, Trump’s hand-picked attorney general — even Barr’s letter acknowledged Mueller did not exonerate Trump of obstruction…”

Donald Trump’s Talent for Turning Wins into Losses article from Politico. –
Primarily because he’s such a loser and always has been, but his stupidity really is going to implode what little is left of his failed presidency:
“Donald Trump’s week started Sunday afternoon with one of the biggest personal victories of his presidency. His attorney general’s four-page synopsis of the special counsel’s completed report said the intensive investigation “did not establish” that the Trump campaign “conspired or coordinated with the Russian government,” granting actual credence to what long had been a White House battle chant: “No collusion!” The good news continued with the sensational arrest of nemesis Michael Avenatti and a court case win concerning tariffs. Understandably, it was cause for a victory lap—giddy and combative proclamations on Twitter, a celebratory burst of White House hosting, a jaunty, chest-out trip over to Capitol Hill.
Then … he careened off track.
Barely more than a day after triumphantly (and incorrectly) blazoning his “Total EXONERATION,” Trump abruptly seized upon a Justice Department filing to pledge his intention to obliterate Obamacare. Bent on delivering on a campaign promise, Trump couldn’t resist the urge to try to parlay one win into an even larger one, no matter how improbable the odds. He ignored the advice of top staff and important allies, who pointed out that neither he nor his party had anything to offer as a replacement and that this almost certainly would work to the advantage of Democrats.
While this looked to pundits and even fellow Republicans like a baffling, self-defeating stroke, it was consistent, actually, with Trump’s lifelong patterns. As often as he has proven his talent for turning losses into wins, or at least spinning them that way, there are weeks like this that recall his record for doing exactly the opposite—he also turns wins into losses…”
Enough collusion talk. It’s time to focus on Trump’s corruption article from The Guardian. –
There is more than ample evidence of Trump’s crimes and corruption to bring down what little is left of his failed presidency, and it’s time to start focusing on all of that.

Watch SNL hilariously mock AG Barr and Trump for attempting to spin Mueller’s report article from The Raw Story. –
The cover up being spun to claim Trump is innocent has fallen apart:
“Academy Award-winning actor Robert DeNiro returned to “Saturday Night Live” to portray former special counsel Robert Mueller.
The show’s cold opening sketch also featured Alec Baldwin portraying President Donald Trump.
The skit ridiculed how Attorney General Bill Barr attempted to spin Mueller’s report, which was further spin by Trump to the point he claimed total vindication.

It’s blatantly obvious to anyone paying attention – and in fact has been for quite some time – that Trump in incapable of ever telling the truth.
The Barr cover-up: Trump was not exonerated, and anyone claiming otherwise is a liar or a dupe article from The Daily Kos. –
The fact that it hasn’t been released yet and no one has seen it yet along with Barr’s past history of defending fraudulent, criminal president’s speaks volumes as to why there is no reason to believe Trump is exonerated, let alone any credibility about it:
This is a complicated and problematic decision for both of them. Before he took office, Barr wrote a memo preemptively attacking the obstruction component of Mueller’s investigation. Rosenstein was part of the conduct (firing Comey) that the investigation would have examined.

The President As Adolescent Bully article from The New Yorker. –
Bullying, with bluster and other bull shit thrown in, describes Trump accurately since he’s too stupid and cruel to do things the normal way, he always has to threaten and act like a 2-year-old:
“At his rally Thursday night in Grand Rapids, President Trump delighted supporters by publicly unveiling his derisive nickname for Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. “Little pencil neck Adam Schiff” — he announced, pausing for the crowd to jeer — “he’s got the smallest, thinnest neck I’ve ever seen.”
“Pencil neck” is an old-time insult that would have been hurled in the hallways of a 1950s high school by the beefy jocks against the wimps. Rush Limbaugh has been using it against Schiff, and Trump has recently mimicked the insult. The two men, neither of whom could be accused of inadequate neck width, share a predilection for adolescent bullying tactics. Limbaugh was so proud Trump picked up his term, he boasted to his audience that he came up with it two years before.
Trump’s use of bullying tactics against his rivals for the Republican nomination in 2015–2016 played a critical role in endearing him to the Republican base. Trump’s rollouts of new terms of abuse for his rivals have become mini-events celebrated by his fans. The Trump campaign capitalized on the new insult by hawking celebratory T-shirts. His continued use of these methods, and the delight it gives his supporters reveals something important about what binds them together.
Bullying is most closely associated with adolescence, because teenagers are most naturally prone to it. Children that age tend to lack empathy or well-developed moral worldviews, and they often gravitate toward peers who engage in displays of dominance and cruelty. It is also the age when people are most prone to judge themselves and others by their appearance, and when social relations tend to be the most hierarchical…”

Trump Says Reelect Me And I’ll Take Away Your Healthcare article from PoliticusUSA. –
No matter what he does, Trump’s actions always belie what he says, and his bull shit healthcare promise – which is a blatant lie – is no different:
“Trump unintentionally told voters that if they reelect him, he will take away their healthcare while trying to retreat on killing Obamacare.
Trump’s healthcare bait and switch
Everybody agrees that ObamaCare doesn’t work. Premiums & deductibles are far too high – Really bad HealthCare! Even the Dems want to replace it, but with Medicare for all, which would cause 180 million Americans to lose their beloved private health insurance. The Republicans…..

Donald Trump’s Never-Ending Campaign Keeps Getting Angrier article from The Atlantic. –
Trump is out of touch with reality and has no interest in actually governing – which is fine since he’s not capable of governing – but he loves holding his rallies where he can spew his vitriolic bull shit and surround himself with moronic miscreants who can’t think for themselves and believe everything his lying ass says:
“A new president typically comes into the White House ready to spend his time governing and, ideally, binding a nation polarized by the electoral battle that has just finished. Donald Trump upended that centuries-old tradition. The race was over, but the Trump campaign kept going. Even before his full Cabinet was in place, Trump returned to battleground states to renew his attacks on Hillary Clinton and savor his Election Night triumph.
Back home in Washington, some of his aides watched with surprise and a sense of dread as Trump improvised onstage. “You’re in the first 100 days of an administration, and you’re doing campaign rallies for reelection. It was a very, very, very strange thing,” said one former White House official, who asked that his name be withheld so he could speak more candidly.
Omarosa Manigault Newman, former communications director for the White House’s Office of Public Liaison, had a similar impression. “We braced ourselves knowing that the rally would bring some inappropriate remarks, attacks on political rivals, or some untruth that we would have to spin about a policy or a decision that the administration had made,” she told me. “Rallies meant more work. All the messaging would go out the window, and we would clean up the mess that Donald Trump would start at the rallies.”
Halfway through the term, Trump rallies are getting longer, the rhetoric hotter. His grievances are ever more pronounced, with consequences for a political coalition Trump hasn’t been able to expand. No one questions that the onetime reality-TV star offers a form of political theater that leaves his base enthralled. “Trump understands that politics is, to some degree, performance art. He’s a natural performer—he’s a good one, and the crowds love it,” said Ralph Reed, the founder and chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition…”

Barr Looks Like He’s Trying to Protect Trump, Not Get Out the Mueller Report article from The Daily Beast. –
Like our imbecilic infant that calls himself president*, watching what Barr does regardless of his failed lies about Trump being cleared will tell you a lot:
“Attorney General Bill Barr’s handling of the Mueller report has confirmed the worst suspicions of his critics, and is doing further damage the reputation of the Department of Justice.
When Barr was nominated to be attorney general, many argued that he should not be confirmed or only confirmed if he agreed to recuse himself from overseeing the special counsel’s investigation into Russia’s attack on the 2016 election, as well as possible obstruction of justice by President Trump into that investigation. Those calls were largely because Barr had written a now infamous 19-page unsolicited memo to the deputy attorney general overseeing the investigation that was subsequently shared with Trump’s legal team. The memo explained why, in Barr’s view, many of the publicly known facts about Trump’s conduct could not constitute the crime of obstruction of justice under the statute because of Barr’s extremely broad view of executive power and executive privilege. Those arguments against Barr’s nomination fell flat and calls for his recusal unheeded.
I was one of several alumni of the Department of Justice who was inclined to give Barr the benefit of the doubt. In my experience, people like Barr who have worked for decades within the DOJ understand the unique importance of its independence and integrity and the need for the public to have faith that decisions made at DOJ are based on facts, evidence, and law and not political considerations. In my experience, the pull of DOJ is to make sure people, in the words of my former boss and friend Preet Bharara, “do the right thing, in the right way for the right reasons.” And so it is with some sadness that I say, Barr did absolutely the wrong thing, in the wrong way, and one can certainly infer bad reasons in his handling so far of the special counsel’s report.
When Robert Mueller gave his report to Barr without any conclusion on whether Trump’s conduct constituted obstruction of justice, Barr had several options available to him. He could have immediately sought a court ruling to unseal much of the report’s content that contained grand jury material — excluding information about any on-going investigations and classified information — and turned over to Congress as much of the report (at least on obstruction) as possible without any immediate public comment. Or he could have simply made public Mueller’s statement that while the report “does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him” and let the facts laid out by Mueller speak for themselves…”
