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:
Witness tampering and intimidation begin today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* as he threatened his former Ambassador while she was testifying at his impeachment hearing – making it even easier to get rid of his corrupt, ignorant ass, why Trump’s conduct is so much worse than Nixon’s, the Don’s failed presidency is in free fall – soon his meltdowns will be coming more frequently and furiously, impeachment inquiry reveals that there is no question he did it – it’s just a matter of whether or not he’ll get away with it, in his typical desperate fashion of lying repeatedly while trying to feign innocence, the Donald showed yet again how profoundly idiotic he truly is, in addition to all the crimes he has committed, the impeachment inquiries have made it blatantly obvious that Donnie never should have been put in the oval office in the first place and much more.
Trump Engaged in Witness Tampering During Ambassador’s Testimony article from Truthout.
Trump was trying to intimidate a former Ambassador while she was giving testimony during his impeachment hearing, and that is a crime – adding yet more ammunition to his imminent implosion.
President helped ‘increase anti-Trump turnout’ in red-state governor’s races — which could spell disaster for the GOP article from The Raw Story.
Donald is toxic and the more he melts down and reveals lower depths of his stupidity, the more the majority that never supported him to begin with grows – and it’s going to cost him and his equally guilty enablers big time.
Get Trump First, But Then… article from Counter Punch.
Holding Trump accountable for his Treason and other crimes against humanity is critical, and holding the equally Treasonous Republicans that have defended and enabled him is too.
Nancy Pelosi Calls Trump Out For Being Insecure And Feeling Like ‘An Imposter’ article from Crooks and Liars.
Pelosi is a real threat to the Don because giving him a taste of his own medicine, getting under his skin and laughing at him while pointing out his weaknesses will make his melt downs come more frequently:
“Nancy Pelosi had a brutal analysis of why Trump continues to hurt himself with self-inflicted wounds. He is insecure and he knows he is an imposter. This analysis, which appears shocking on point, was given during an interview with Face the Nation, and Pelosi did not hold back.
First, they talked about why Trump decided to tweet about former Ambassador Maria Yovanovitch while she was testifying, which was largely panned as an abuse of power or witness intimidation.
MARGARET BRENNAN: Why do you think he was tweeting about her?…”
A Complete Analysis Of Trump’s 147th Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt.
Donnie’s weeks keep getting drastically worse as his failed presidency continues imploding and he’s not handling it well.
Pelosi: Trump’s conduct is ‘so much worse’ than Nixon’s article from NBC News.
At one point Nixon finally put country over politics, but Trump isn’t capable of putting anyone or anything above his own personal delusions and needs – and he’s going to pay a heavy price for that.
Trump Is Under Investigation For Felony Lie To Mueller article from PoliticusUSA.
It’s well known that Donnie lied to Mueller – he’s incapable of doing anything but lie about everything – and when he gets removed from office, he could be looking at more felony charges:
“But Trump told Mueller in his written statements he didn't recall discussing WikiLeaks with Stone.”— Richard W. Painter (@RWPUSA) November 18, 2019
Manafort and Gates testimony suggests otherwise.
If Trump lied, that's a felony.

On impeachment, three days that Trump would like to forget article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.
Donnie is going down for his never-ending crimes sprees and he knows it, and it’s only going to get worse – which will prove extremely entertaining:
“Friday’s testimony from Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, was quite brutal for the White House, leaving little doubt that Donald Trump and his associates hatched a scheme that prioritized the president’s interests over the United States’. Her appearance came on the heels of equally damaging testimony from Bill Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, and George Kent, a deputy assistant secretary of state.
But observers who turned their attention away from the impeachment inquiry after Yovanovitch left the hearing room to a standing ovation missed a 72-hour period that likely brought a feeling of dread to many in the White House. Late Friday, for example, David Holmes further tied Trump to the Ukraine scheme.
David Holmes, a career foreign service officer, told impeachment investigators Friday that he overheard a phone call between President Donald Trump and E.U. Ambassador Gordon Sondland in which the president asked Sondland if Ukraine would investigate the Bidens, a source with direct knowledge of his closed-door testimony said. […]
“I heard President Trump then clarify that Ambassador Sondland was in Ukraine. Ambassador Sondland replied, yes, he was in Ukraine, and went on to state that President Zelenskiy ‘loves your ass.’ I then heard President Trump ask, ‘So, he’s gonna do the investigation?’” Holmes recounted, according to the statement. “Ambassador Sondland replied, that ‘he’s gonna do it,’ adding that President Zelenskiy will do, ‘anything you ask him to.’”…”
Trump’s latest impeachment defense is fabricating Pelosi quotes article from Vox News.
It’s old news noting that Trump does nothing but lie, but now he’s trying to put fabricated words in his opponent’s mouths, like the one below:
Nancy Pelosi just stated that “it is dangerous to let the voters decide Trump’s fate.” @FoxNews In other words, she thinks I’m going to win and doesn’t want to take a chance on letting the voters decide. Like Al Green, she wants to change our voting system. Wow, she’s CRAZY!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 19, 2019
Meltdown: After watching impeachment hearing Trump lashes out at Dems and media as ‘sick’ days after hospital visit article from The Raw Story.
Trump’s ass is going down and he knows it, and he’s not handling it well because the roof is beginning to cave in.
Trump’s Tactic Is to Insult the Witnesses. It’s Not Working. article from Truthout.
Trying to bully and intimidate witnesses via his delusional tweets isn’t working for Trump – he’s so impotent and such a lame duck president* that nobody has anything to be afraid of, especially since there is a good chance he will be indicted once he’s impeached or voted out of office.
The Trump Presidency Is in Free Fall article from The Atlantic.
The Don’s presidency – like everything else he’s ever laid his profoundly corrupt and ignorant paws on – is a massive failure that is imploding at a rapid rate – soon he’ll be in full meltdown mode as the rest of the rats abandon ship:
“That old sinking feeling is back.
There have occasionally been stretches of time that are good for the Trump administration. There have more often been stretches that are bad, though there is a baseline of chaos that has come to feel almost normal. And occasionally, there have been truly hellacious stretches: May 2017, when Donald Trump fired then–FBI Director James Comey; August 2017, around the white-supremacist march in Charlottesville, Virginia; January 2018, around the release of Fire and Fury; December 2018–January 2019, when Defense Secretary James Mattis quit and Trump forced and then blinked on a government shutdown.
Now the administration is experiencing another one of those stretches. Even by the strained standards of the Trump presidency, the past couple of weeks have brought an astonishing raft of bad news for the White House.
On Capitol Hill, a parade of impeachment witnesses continues to deliver damaging revelations about his handling of Ukraine. First, testimony from embassy staff in Kyiv has demolished the (latest) Republican defense of Trump, that although his aides may have pressured Ukraine to start investigations into the Biden family and the 2016 election, the president was not involved and unaware. In truth, that excuse was always a fallback and always implausible—Trump demanded the investigations in his July 25 call with President Volodymyr Zelensky—but news of an overheard call between Trump and Ambassador Gordon Sondland shows the president’s personal connection. The reported substance of that call also waves away the claim that Trump was earnestly concerned about corruption in Ukraine…”
The question is no longer whether Trump did it – it’s whether he’ll get away with it article from The Detroit Metro Times.
The impeachment inquiry has made it blatantly clear that Trump committed a multitude of treasonous high crimes, so now it remains to be seen what our Congress will do about it and if the GOP will continue aiding and abetting him.
Massive blow to Trump: Gordon Sondland pins Ukraine ‘quid pro quo’ on president article from Salon News.
In testimony that surprised absolutely on one paying attention, Sondland confirmed that he was following Donnie orders, confirming that Ukraine was indeed quid pro quo.

The lengthy list of crimes committed by Trump and his enablers is becoming problematic and soon the rest of Trump’s already failed presidency will come crashing down.
Fox News Tells Trump He Committed Bribery And Will Be Impeached article from PoliticusUSA.
You know you’re having a bad day when your Ministry of Propaganda tells you you’re being impeached:
“Fox News’s Ken Starr gave Trump a dose of reality by making it clear that the President Of The United States will be impeached.
Starr said, “There will be articles of impeachment, I think we’ve known that. It was just confirmed today, and then substantively what we’ve heard from the chairman just now is it’s over. We now know, I mean this is his position, we now know that the president, in fact, committed the crime of bribery the something of value. That’s litigable, but articles of impeachment are being drawn up if they haven’t already been drawn up.”
Ken Starr: "There will be articles of impeachment, I think we've known that … It's over … This is his position, we now know that the president, in fact, committed the crime of bribery … Articles of impeachment are being drawn up if they haven't already been drawn up." pic.twitter.com/82NOwczpej— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) November 20, 2019
Trump’s new ‘NO QUID PRO QUO’ talking point is a trick article from Vox News.
Trump’s ass is busted big time and he knows it, so now he’s trying to find another way to weasel out of being held responsible – which, like everything else he has done, will fail miserably:
SCHIFF: "My colleagues seem to be under the impression that unless POTUS spoke the words, 'ambassador, I am bribing the Ukrainian president,' that there's no evidence of bribery… they also seem to say, 'well, they got the money.' Yes. They got caught. They got caught." pic.twitter.com/FUQsH7tGu9— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) November 20, 2019
Here Is the Full Text of Donald Trump’s Sharpie Lies for the Press article from The Root.
In his infinite ignorance, the Donald actually believes that his lies make everything he says true, and holding your notes written in big black sharpie ink – complete with typos – just offers yet more evidence that he truly is dumber than dirt.
Donald Trump’s No-Quid-Pro-Quo Defense Is Crushed. The GOP Didn’t Get the Memo. article from Mother Jones.

‘Everyone Was In The Loop’: Sondland Implicates Trump, Pompeo, & Pence In Extortion Plot article from Rantt.
Unsurprisingly, also in his infinite stupidity, Trump and his impeachment inquiry made it blatantly obvious that his whole administration is in on his Treason, and it’s only going to get better as more details emerge:
“Today’s public impeachment hearing was the fourth and most devastating thus far. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland confirmed the “quid pro quo” (Ukraine extortion plot) at the heart of the House impeachment inquiry and delivered hard evidence that proved multiple Cabinet officials were fully aware of it.
In a nutshell, Sondland testified that Ukraine’s proposed White House meeting was directly tied to the Trump-demanded investigations of Burisma (the Bidens) and the Ukraine 2016 meddling conspiracy theory. Sondland also said he later presumed Ukraine’s military aid was also tied to these investigations. Sondland repeatedly said he was acting on President Trump’s orders and that he saw Rudy Giuliani as a conduit through which Trump was delivering orders.
Sondland also claimed that President Trump just wanted a public statement and didn’t put an emphasis on the investigations to be followed through on. This took down the narrative that Trump was concerned about corruption more broadly, and that builds the Democratic case that Trump was just seeking investigations of his political targets ahead of 2020.
What we’ll highlight here is the fact Sondland revealed the extent to which Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was kept in the loop of key developments in this extortion plot, and that Sondland directly told Vice President Mike Pence as well…”
Fiona Hill Hits Trump With A Total Quid Pro Quo KO article from PoliticusUSA.
Some of the morons in the GOP trying to defend Trump for being too stupid to successfully extort money from Ukraine aren’t helping him, but regardless, there is no doubt whatsoever that Trump is guilty of Treason – and trying to blame Ukraine instead of Russia for helping him get elected:

There’s no way to back Trump without backing Putin article from The Raw Story.
Despite his desperate lies and trying to frame Ukraine as the villains that helped him get ‘elected,’ all roads lead back to Russia and Trump is one of their many puppets in the U.S. government.
The Walls are Closing in on Donald Trump article from Counter Punch.
Things are about to get a whole lot worse for Donnie and he knows it, and he’s not going to handle it well when his corrupt, ignorant ass crashes and burns.
Fiona Hill Ties Trump’s Ukraine Pressure Back to Russiagate article from The Daily Beast.
Because Donnie is beholden to Russia, he tried dreaming up a conspiracy theory involving Ukraine but it backfired miserably:
“Throughout the first week of the House of Representatives’ impeachment hearings, the witnesses, most of them serving career U.S. diplomats, have attempted agnosticism on the merits of impeaching President Trump and sidestep often rancorous Republican questioning. But the White House’s former top Russia official made it clear on Thursday that she wasn’t going to follow the same script.
Fiona Hill was the National Security Council senior director for Russia and Eurasia until days before the now-infamous July 25 phone call in which Trump asked Zelensky for the “favor” of investigating Trump’s domestic political rivals. After describing her “pride in being a nonpartisan” expert, Hill, now out of government, tacitly warned Republicans that their descent into conspiracy theory to save Trump’s presidency is damaging the country.
Hill tied the Ukraine pressure campaign back to the 2016 Russian interference that the pressure campaign was supposed to render murky. “The Russian interest is to delegitimize the entire presidency,” Hill testified, saying that whomever was elected in 2016 would be “under a cloud.” It aided Russian interests, she said, to “pit one side of the electorate against the other.”
Always an awkward fit within the Trump administration—Hill has been as distrustful of Vladmir Putin as Trump has been solicitous—Hill told the inquiry on Thursday that a “fictional narrative” about Ukranian electoral interference in 2016, repeatedly voiced during the hearings by ranking Republican Devin Nunes (R-CA), was an invention of the Russian security services. Even before Hill spoke, Nunes, who has tethered himself to Trump, attempted to preempt her criticism. Later, Hill’s statement drew anger from committee Republican Reps. Mike Turner (R-OH) and John Ratcliffe (R-TX)…”
Trump Accepts Israeli ‘Realities on Ground’ – Realities Funded by His Administration article from The Strategic Culture Foundation.
Trump, Friedman and the Kushner family have funneled millions of dollars into Israeli settlements – in Palestine where Israel is violating International Law and committing genocide with total impunity – and in return, Israeli financial companies have made huge investments in Kushner’s family real estate business.
Despite devastating testimony, Trump falsely claims exoneration (again) article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.
How the Don can be so delusional despite the bubbles bursting in his alternate reality is a mystery but in no way has the impeachment inquiry remotely exonerated him – he’s guilty as hell and most of the world knows it.
GOP Impeachment Smoke And Mirrors Can’t Hide That Trump Did It article from PoliticusUSA.
Everything that Trump has been accused of in his Ukraine conspiracy theory has proved true and there is no question whatsoever that he did it and he is guilty as hell, regardless of the lies his GOP enablers are trying to peddle:

Trump Worked Out His Impeachment Feelings with a 57-Minute RAnt on ‘Fox and Friends’ article from Vice News.
Donald would be sunk were it not for his Ministry of Propaganda who continually allow him to spew his vitriolic fact free bull shit, lies and delusions to appease the minority of moronic minions that support his corrupt and ignorant ass with no interruption whatsoever, but it’s obvious the pressure of his imminent impeachment is getting to him:
“Want to know how well things are going for President Donald Trump this week?
He called up “Fox & Friends” on Friday morning and delivered a head-spinning, 57-minute rant-fest, in a seeming desperate attempt to regain control of the narrative — at least with his base. With all the damning testimony this week and last, the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry has grown into a full-blown crisis for the White House, and the call on Friday proved Trump is feeling the heat.
“Fox & Friends” hosts Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade and Ainsley Earhardt tried to corral the conversation as Trump careened from topic to topic, hitting on testimony from the inquiry, the identity of the whistleblower, how he stopped China from invading Hong Kong, having to be “nice” to a woman and, naturally, a conspiracy theory about servers.
Here’s a quick breakdown of the seven things you should know from Trump’s wildest Fox & Friends call-in yet…”

Jake Tapper: Trump is trying to ‘gaslight the country’ article from Politico.
The media is finally catching on to the fact that pointing out Trump’s lies aren’t enough – that Trump’s lies are nothing more than delusional attempts to gaslight this country into believing what goes on in his alternate reality and it’s time to recognize it for what it is and call it out.
