Trump is getting worse article from The Week.
The profound ignorance and corruption emanating from the White House is dragging what little is left of Trump’s failed presidency down the drain as he continues providing more than ample evidence for his impeachment.

Give the man a shovel and he just buries himself… with an administration as corrupt and stupid as he is, Trump’s impeachment is going to be slow and painful.
The week Donald Trump’s presidency crashed and burned – and Republicans have noticed article from Salon.
Trump’s treachery and Treason have been on full display as he keeps digging his grave a little deeper and people are finally starting to notice just how illegitimate, incompetent and corrupt he is:

An avalanche of confessions: Trump’s chief of staff just admitted a stunning amount of wrongdoing on live TV article from Alternet.
How one of the Don’s moronic minions may have put the final nail in his corrupt coffin:
“Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney adopted a new approach to President Donald Trump’s war on impeachment in a Thursday press briefing: admitting a gigantic amount of wrongdoing in one sitting and daring Republicans to care.
The avalanche of confessions began in the White House briefing room, where Mulvaney revealed that the United States will host the upcoming G7 summit of world leaders at Trump National Doral in Miami, the president’s own Florida resort.
This is a grotesquely corrupt move, and the White House knows it. Even if, as Mulvaney claimed, the Doral was the best possible location for the G7 in the country — a ridiculous assertion — it would still be incumbent on the administration to choose another location to avoid the appearance of corruption and the reality of a conflict of interest. Mulvaney claimed that, all things considered, Trump decided he would “take the hit” of accusations of corruption. But it’s not just Trump who “takes the hit,” it’s the entire federal government, and the United States itself, that gets stained with corruption, and that’s a condemnable choice to make.
Mulvaney even admitted: “There’s plenty of other good places in this country to hold a large event. There’s no question.” And yet, they still chose absolutely the most corrupt place to do it…”

With the profound corruption of Trump and his administrations, it’s time to take a serious look at who they are and what they’ve done and to hold them accountable.
Extorting Ukraine is Bad Enough But Trump Has Done Much Worse article from Counter Punch.
Donnie has spent his entire delusional life committing crimes and inflating his sense of self-worth and soon he’s going to pay a price for it. It’s time to put it under the microscope and end it before it metastasizes any longer.
Here’s what Trump and his defenders are hiding whenever they insist that something is ‘perfect’ article from The Raw Story.
The doublespeak and suggestive vocabulary used by the Don and his corrupt administration is indicative of them having something major to hide because it was extremely illegal:
Trump White House celebrates 1,000th day with stunning corruption admission article from The Week.
Trump keeps making his impeachment inquiry easier and easier because he surrounds himself with minions that are almost as stupid and corrupt as he is:
“President Trump and his allies marked the 1,000th day of his administration by escalating their broad daylight assault on American law and decency. In an extraordinarily bananas press conference, acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney announced that next year’s G7 meeting would be held at the Trump Doral Resort in Florida and then admitted to extorting the government of Ukraine for 2020 campaign help — the very allegation that led to the House’s impeachment inquiry.
These outrages were not unrelated, as the president continues to push against the outer boundaries of what might be tolerated by his congressional apologists. The G7 bombshell was dropped almost the moment the press conference began, and we should linger for a minute on the insane logic that Mulvaney used to justify this “decision.” He claimed that the administration sent out teams to scout 10 different potential locations, but after visiting the Trump Doral, they returned to Mulvaney and said, “Mick, you’re not going to believe this, but it’s almost like they built this facility to host this type of event.”
Obviously, this, like the invented conversations Trump has with his imaginary generals, is a conversation that never happened, but run-of-the-mill fabulism is priced into the Trump era at this point. When a reporter asked how this wasn’t a conflict of interest, Mulvaney replied, “First off, you’re not making any profit,” and the reporter followed up, “It’s a marketing and branding opportunity.” Mulvaney then went deep into hostage mode, claiming that “Donald Trump’s brand is probably strong enough as it is, and he doesn’t need any more help on that,” because the word “Trump” is now “the most recognizable word in the English language.” Again, this kind of nauseating, up-is-down subservience is the new normal in Washington.
It’s worth reading through the whole exchange for the genuinely breathtaking combination of arrogance and contempt for everyone’s intelligence on display. Mulvaney claimed that two of the 10 finalists for the G7 were Trump properties — totally on the merits! He dismissed questions about violations of the Constitution’s emoluments clause with the evidence-free claim that “We will not be profiting here.” The incredulous reporters kept coming at him. “There has to be other good places without the president’s name on them.” Mulvaney replied that those other places weren’t suitable because the G7 will be held in early June, “which limits it a little bit.” He claimed previous meetings at Camp David were “a disaster.”…”

Trump’s novel corruption defense: I do it in plain sight article from The Week.
As with ignorantly believing that repeating his lies often enough will make them true in his alternate reality, Trump’s mental deficiencies make him think that the president* can do whatever he wants and it’s legal – and he’s going to find out the hard way just how wrong he is.
Trump embarks on Twitter spree amid impeachment inquiry, Syria outrage article from The Hill.
In his typical weekend fashion our delusional Twitter tyrant spews his lies and bull shit tweets to his moronic minions desperately trying to make it all go away – albeit failing miserably as usual:
“President Trump spent much of Saturday on Twitter, unleashing a barrage of tweets and retweets aimed at House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.
As of 7:30 p.m., Trump had issued only six tweets of his own but had retweeted at least 40 others, many of them from supporters in the media and Congress offering him a boost. He also issued scorching attacks aimed at Democrats, including House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).
“There has never been a greater fraud on Congress,” wrote Trump, referring to the impeachment inquiry and responding to Rep. Andy Biggs’s (R-Ariz.) motion to censure Schiff for allegedly lying about his office’s contact with a whistleblower who filed a complaint about Trump’s conversation with Zelensky.
“Shifty Schiff is Corrupt. Go Andy!” he added…”

Trying to blame the media and Democrats for his incorrigibly corrupt ignorance isn’t going to work out well for the Don who was trying to fuck U.S. taxpayers again while illegally lining his pockets before he gets impeached or voted out:
I thought I was doing something very good for our Country by using Trump National Doral, in Miami, for hosting the G-7 Leaders. It is big, grand, on hundreds of acres, next to MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, has tremendous ballrooms & meeting rooms, and each delegation would have…— Donald J.

Mick Mulvaney admits that Trump ‘still considers himself to be in the hospitality business’ article from Salon News.
The list of crimes Trump has committed in office keeps growing and the profoundly disastrous combination of stupidity and corruption that has been Trump’s life is going to cost him bigly:
“During an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” President Donald Trump’s acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney admitted that the commander-in-chief “still considers himself to be in the hospitality business” despite ostensibly serving the public in a disinterested fashion

Chris Wallace responds: "You say he considers himself in the hospitality business, he's the president of United States." pic.twitter.com/HDVyHz4GhS
“Honestly I think what you saw in the tweet was real,” Mulvaney told anchor Chris Wallace on Sunday. “The president isn’t one for holding back his feelings and his emotions about something. He was honestly surprised at the level of pushback. At the end of the day, he still considers himself to be in the hospitality business.”
“But that’s his background,” Mulvaney replied. I used to be in the real estate business.” He later added that Trump “wanted to put on a show. He wanted to take care of folks.”…”

Emoluments is a funny word for Trump’s serious corruption article from Arizona Republic.
Despite Trump’s desperate lies, the Emoluments clause is real and the only thing that’s phony about it is Congress’s failure to enforce it:
“Until there was a President Donald Trump, I’d guess that if you’d asked the man on the street what the funny-sounding word “emoluments” meant, he’d have guessed it had something to do with medical science, mixed drinks or something naughty on the internet.
And by “the man on the street” I mean … me.
But now we know.
Emoluments are, essentially, payments. Could be cash. Could be favors. Could be promises…”

‘What the hell is wrong with you?’: Outrage erupts after Trump calls impeachment inquiry ‘a lynching’ article from Alternet.
The growing desperation is making Donnie more stupid – he knows he’s going down and he’s not handling it well.
The 41 most out-there lines from Donald Trump’s Cabinet meeting article from CNN.
The Donald’s bitch fests and senseless, delusional rants keep coming quicker and harder since his impeachment is going to tarnish his illegitimate failed presidency whether he gets removed or not and he knows it:
“(CNN) – On Monday, President Donald Trump held a Cabinet meeting. And, as often happens in these meetings, he spent the first half of the gathering monologuing while taking the occasional question from the assembled reporters. His Cabinet laughed when they were supposed to laugh, but otherwise sat idly by.
I went through the transcript of Trump’s comments at the top of the Cabinet meeting. They’re below.
1. “We never agreed to protect the Kurds for the rest of their lives.”
If you are a US ally — like the Kurds! — and you read this quote, what must you be thinking? Also, away we go!…”

Congressional Black Caucus Chair: Trump throws out ‘racial bombs’ when back is against the wall article from CNN.
Donald always throws racial epitaphs when cornered – to serve as a distraction to try and deflect from his incorrigibly corrupt ineptitude and to rile up the moronic minions that support him, and as always, fails miserably.
Trump unironically says his sons receiving foreign payments ‘would be the biggest story of the century’ article from Vox News.
The hypocrisy of Trump complaining about Biden’s alleged ‘corruption’ while omitting that he and his family are still profiting off questionable foreign entities while speaking with Fox faux news (his Ministry of Propaganda) is hysterical – and makes him look extremely more pathetic than usual:

Donald Trump’s big short: Is the president profiting off the market chaos he creates? article from Salon News.
There appears to be mounting evidence that Trump is profiting off illegal insider trading since he created his moronic tariff war and if that’s true, he’s going to be in deeper shit:
“Back in early 2018, I noticed something hinky about the confluence of Donald Trump’s blurts about his trade war with the movement of the stock market. As I wrote in this space back in August, I believe Trump or people close to Trump might be profiting off the volatility of the markets ever since the president first declared a trade war against our allies and frenemies alike.
Since the passage of the 2009 stimulus, and with the exception of 2015, the markets have been mostly climbing steadily, in a relatively smooth upward slope. This ascending trajectory continued through the first year of Trump’s presidency until suddenly we began to observe harrowing single-day declines — volatility in the form of precipitous collapses of as much as 1,175 points off the Dow Jones average.
In fact, the top five biggest single-day point declines in the history of the Dow have occurred on Trump’s watch, and all have occurred since February, 2018.
Coincidentally — or maybe not quite that — the president issued his first tariffs on Jan. 22, 2018, and the first gigantic market decline of his presidency happened two weeks later on Feb. 5: the aforementioned 1,175-point crash. However, there were smaller declines that began the day after the first tariff announcement. Since then, many of the biggest market gains or declines have occurred within days, sometimes within hours, of Trump’s various statements and tweets…”
Trump’s defense on Ukraine has completely collapsed article from Vox News.
