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:
Having no credibility whatsoever due to his endless lies begins today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* as his lies used to justify his war crime in Iraq offer yet more evidence that he needs to be removed from office and he is a major threat to our National Security, Donnie has dug himself another hole that he’ll never be able to slither out due to his corrupt ignorance, how the Don tries to avoid responsibility for his criminal stupidity by conjuring up illusions in his delusional little mind, Trump can’t believe his latest war crime didn’t make everyone love him, still behaving like a guilty man – which is quite revealing, the lies – and the crimes – from the Don keep coming as his desperation to keep his ignorant ass out of prison continues growing, having his illegitimate presidency tainted by impeachment is weighing heavily on the Donald and he’s not handling it well, Trump and all his enablers – Pence, Barr, Pompeo etc. – are all implicated in his crimes and much more.
Serial liar Trump doesn’t get the benefit of the doubt on leading us into war article from Alternet.
All Trump ever does is lie, and his lies used for justifying his war crime aren’t going to bode well for him – and he has absolutely no credibility whatsoever about anything because of his endless lies.
Emails point to ‘clear direction’ from Trump in Ukraine scheme article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.
Newly revealed emails show that Donnie is guilty as hell of what he’s been charged with – and it appears that he attacked Iran to try and deflect from the imminent implosion of his corrupt, failed presidency.
Trump believes he has ‘no choice’ but to launch a ‘massive retaliation’ for Iran strikes: CNN’s Jim Acosta article from The Raw Story.
Trump’s ignorance in killing Iran’s top Military leader – and committing yet more war crimes – and thinking they wouldn’t retaliate reveals just how profoundly ignorant he is:
Trump officials are bending over backward to say he didn’t threaten to commit a war crime after he repeatedly threatened to commit a war crime article from Business Insider.
The lies coming from the White House – whose administration officials are just as profoundly ignorant and corrupt as their leader – trying to cover up Trump’s threats to commit more war crimes are quite entertaining:
“President Donald Trump announced on Twitter over the weekend that if Iran retaliated against the US for assassinating its top military general, Qassem Soleimani, the US would respond by attacking 52 Iranian sites, including cultural ones, “VERY FAST AND VERY HARD.”
After initially backing down from his comments following swift backlash and allegations that he was advocating a war crime, Trump doubled down while talking to reporters on Air Force One.
“They’re allowed to kill our people. They’re allowed to torture and maim our people. They’re allowed to use roadside bombs and blow up our people,” he said. “And we’re not allowed to touch their cultural site? It doesn’t work that way.”
Targeting cultural sites with no military value violates international law and multiple treaties…”
It would only take 20 Republican senators with a conscience to end this article from Alternet.
As our demented toddler in the White House continues imploding and digging himself a deeper hole he’ll never be able to slither out of, it’s going to be interesting to see if the GOP enablers in the Senate actually grow a spine or continue letting him destroy everything they are.
Trump Backs Down From Making An Oval Office Address After Iran Attacks U.S. Troops article from PoliticusUSA.
No surprise there as the gutless coward that started another potentially illegal war doesn’t have the courage to face the majority that opposes him with more fodder, lies and rants and looking like the ass he is:

The assassination of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani could be Trump’s Chernobyl moment article from Business Insider.
Trump’s lies about the ‘imminent threat’ as the reason he committed yet more war crimes isn’t working and it’s going to cost his ignorant ass bigly…
A Complete Analysis Of Trump’s 154th Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt.
Times keep getting tougher for our wannabe dictator as his ignorance and corruption continue imploding his already failed presidency:
“2020 is off to a shaky start. The mental instability of the man currently occupying the Oval Office has further destabilized the Middle East and taken America to the brink of war.
This week, President Trump made the reckless decision to assassinate Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, the 2nd most powerful figure in Iran. This move came after a US contractor was killed in a rocket attack on Kirkuk Province base last week and the assault on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. While the Trump Administration is claiming there was the threat of an imminent attack, that intelligence is reportedly “razor-thin.” The US reportedly had communications between Iran’s supreme leader and Soleimani indicating that they had not yet approved any plans by Soleimani for an imminent attack. This hasn’t stopped President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo from lying to the American people about it.
This assassination was widely panned as disproportionate and the most provocative move in the region in years. President Trump also did not notify Congress before taking this action. When framing this assassination, let’s be clear: this was all set in motion when Trump left the Iran Nuclear Deal, which Iran was complying with. President Trump then began applying crippling economic sanctions which triggered Iran’s escalations in the region that brought us to this point. Iran was not behaving in this manner when the Iran Nuclear Deal was active.
Now, we’re here and the damage Trump has done is immeasurable. Iran was recently struggling with divisive protests, but after this move, the entire county is now united. Iraq’s parliament has also voted to expel US troops from the country. While the resolution is non-binding, it sends a clear signal. President Trump is now threatening to commit war crimes by attacking 52 cultural sites in Iran if they retaliate and he’s also threatening to sanction Iraq. The Trump Administration has also deployed 3,500 additional troops to the region. The current situation is fraught…”
Fallout from Trump’s Soleimani airstrike is already taking shape article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.
Trump’s profound stupidity is already taking precedence and the fallout caused by it is taking shape.
Trump Blames Obama For Iranian Missile Strike On US Base article from PoliticusUSA.
Never one to take responsibility for his own corrupt actions, Donnie decided yet again to try and blame his predecessor by yet again lying his ignorant ass off:

The Spotted Trump Hoax, and Other Mythical Creatures article from Common Dreams.
How the Don always tries to avoid responsibility for his criminal stupidity by conjuring up illusions – hoax, witch hunt, etc. – in his delusional little brain, which is a large part of why he’s such a failure.
The excuses for assassinating Soleimani are illogical and stupid, and this is going to get ugly article from The Daily Kos.
Donald’s stupidity in killing an Iranian leader because he actually believed he could gain politically while trying to deflect from his impeachment is going to fail miserably:
“Trump regime officials are working overtime to try and rationalize the least rational act by an irrational president in an irrational presidency. “The president has always made it his first priority to protect American citizens, and the intel that we had, the information we had — which we believe was very strong — shows that Soleimani and those he was plotting with were looking to kill American diplomats and soldiers in significant numbers in the coming days,” said national security adviser Robert O’Brien.
The statement is all sorts of ridiculous.
1) “The information we had.” This is a regime that has spent the last three years undermining the legitimacy of our intelligence and national security agencies. Now we’re supposed to believe that they trust those same agencies? Risible. And of course, we’ve been through this song and dance before. There is no such information. They’re lying.
2) The president’s first priority is making money for himself. Why pretend otherwise?…”
Trump Can’t Believe His ‘Wag The Dog’ Attack Didn’t Make Everyone Love Him article from Crooks and Liars.
The idiot that has lied repeatedly to this country for the past 3 years can’t believe that the country doesn’t appreciate the War Crime he committed to try and save his sorry Orange Ass from being impeached:
Donald Trump is behaving like the guiltiest man alive article from The Week.
Probably because he is – conspiring with the Senate to try and dismiss his impeachment reveals that he’s even more guilty than previously thought and needs to be held accountable.
The Wall Street Journal accidently reveals the unbearable truth about Soleimani’s assassination article from The Raw Story.
The fact that he ordered an assassination to avoid having the Senate impeach him is criminal and quite revealing…
Trump’s evolving account of Soleimani’s ‘imminent threat’ article from NBC News.
The lies – like the crimes – from Trump and his equally corrupt administration just keep coming as he keeps trying to find more ways to keep his ignorant ass out of prison:
“WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s description of the “imminent threat” that led to the killing of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani keeps evolving, at times appearing to contradict what his administration has shared with Congress and the public about what prompted his decision.
On Friday, Trump said that he decided to order the strike on Soleimani on Iraqi soil because the senior Iranian official was “probably” planning attacks on four U.S. embassies, including the one in Baghdad.
“We will tell you that probably it was going to be the embassy in Baghdad,” Trump told Fox News host Laura Ingraham. When pressed on why Americans could not know more about what led to his decision, Trump added, “I can reveal that I believe it would have been four embassies.”
A day earlier, Trump offered a more definitive, yet narrower, description when he told reporters at the White House that “we did it because they were looking to blow up our embassy.” At a campaign rally Thursday night, he said that attacks were planned on more than just the embassy in Baghdad, but did not elaborate on how many embassies or which ones were allegedly targeted…”
Trump reportedly connected impeachment trial, Soleimani airstrike article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.
More on the illegality of Trump’s killing Soleimani for political gains he thought he would receive – where, as usual, he failed miserably.
A Complete Analysis Of Trump’s 155th Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt.
Every week brings a new scandal for the most corrupt president* in U.S. history, and his weeks just keep getting worse.
It’ll be even more embassies next week article from Crooks and Liars.
The pathological liar in the White House is having difficulty keeping his lies straight – and it’s going to come back and haunt him bigly:
As we enter the fourth year of the Trump era, let’s remember: this is still not normal article from The Guardian.
Trying to normalize his profound stupidity and corruption isn’t going to bode well for the Don, it’s only going to cost him more:
“After three years of dangerously and unnecessarily escalating tensions with Iran, Donald Trump rang in the new year by creating a crisis that almost started a war with Iran – and still very well could.
As we enter the fourth year of Trump’s presidency, it is more necessary than ever to remind ourselves daily: this is not normal.
The list of despicable domestic actions by Trump that must not be normalized is long – from the policy separating migrant children from their parents and detaining them in cages to the president’s call for his critics to be investigated or jailed.
And while Trump’s foreign policy in 2017 and 2018 was shocking – including regular praise for dictators Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping and Kim Jong-un, for instance – 2019 was the year that Congress and the American people finally had enough. The Ukraine scandal made crystal clear Trump’s unprecedented and dangerous assault on national security norms and led to his impeachment. But the extortion of Ukraine for personal gain was far from the only national security norm that Trump attacked in 2019…”
Trump’s ‘WMD’ Scandal? Was the Charge of ‘Imminent’ Soleimani Attack Just Made Up? article from Common Dreams.
There is no legal justification for Trump’s assassination of Soleimani, adding to the list of crimes committed routinely by an illegitimate president*, regardless of all his lies and delusions.
Trump Spirals Into Gibberish During Incoherent Foreign Policy Rant At Wisconsin Rally article from PoliticusUSA.
If the Donald were smart, he would quit doing his delusional rally rant fests where he brags about his delusional embellishments and start trying to focus on actually leading – which of course is impossible as he keeps offering yet more evidence that he is indeed illegitimate:
Trump’s Latest Debacle: an Incompetent and Deceitful National Security Team article from Counter Punch.
It’s bad enough having a pathological lying, profoundly moronic illegitimate president* in the White House, but surrounding himself with people that are as equally corrupt and stupid as he is has cemented Trump’s place in the trash bin of American history for all the wrong reasons.
Federal agency publishes ‘bombshell legal opinion’ showing Trump’s White House violated the law by withholding Ukraine aid article from The Raw Story.
Trump and his entire administration – Pence, Barr, Pompeo and more – have been implicated in breaking the law, making his crimes indefensible and proving yet again that his entire presidency is illegitimate:
“On Thursday, the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report concluding that President Donald Trump’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) violated federal law by refusing to render the funds for Ukrainian military sales that were approved by Congress:
This bombshell legal opinion from the independent @USGAO demonstrates, without a doubt, that the Trump Administration illegally withheld assistance from Ukraine and the public evidence shows that the president himself ordered this illegal act. pic.twitter.com/bkwyQ4Vk3K— Senator Chris Van Hollen (@ChrisVanHollen) January 16, 2020
At issue is a federal law known as the Impoundment Control Act, which requires executive agencies to spend money that Congress has appropriated. The GAO report concludes that the OMB “withheld funds for a policy reason,” which is not a legal reason to do so.
“Faithful execution of the law does not permit the President to substitute his own policy priorities for those that Congress has enacted into law. OMB withheld funds for a policy reason, which is not permitted under the Impoundment Control Act (ICA)” the GAO said…”
Ukraine gives Trump the corruption investigation he asked for article from The Week.
Oops… only instead of investigating Biden, Ukraine is investigating Trump’s cronies thanks to his ignorant gangster tactics – which he’s too stupid to pull off successfully:
"It wasn't just military aid. It was all aid," Parnas tells @maddow. "Basically the relationships would be sour. We would stop giving them any kind of aid, unless… there were several demands at the point — the most important one was the announcement of the Biden investigation." pic.twitter.com/DYwDUofVnl— MSNBC (@MSNBC) January 16, 2020
Does Anyone Dare Tell Trump the Truth? article from The Atlantic.
Highly unlikely since Donnie can’t handle the truth and always ends up shooting the messenger, which is going to end up costing him bigly…
Trump Is Obsessed With People Calling Him ‘Sir’ article from Vice News.
Sadly, Herr Drumpf doesn’t deserve any respect and he never gives it, yet he always expects it.
Trump’s Perverse Impeachment Defense: He Should Not Be Impeached Even If He’s Guilty article from The Daily Kos.
The delusions and lies emanated by the most corrupt presidential administration in history are going to come back and bite Trump big time:
“The Senate trial of Donald Trump’s Articles of Impeachment is set to begin on Tuesday. In advance of that, the Democrats released a 111 page brief on how they intend to prosecute the case against Trump. It’s a detailed and comprehensive outline of the high crimes and misdemeanors that justify Trump’s conviction and removal from office.
On the other side of the aisle, Trump’s motley crew of Fox News lawyers released a shallow and lie-riddled response that hardly touches on the specific allegations against Trump. In fact, Trump’s official answer to the Articles of Impeachment is an emotional seven page rant that repetitiously makes a single point: that “the Articles of Impeachment are constitutionally invalid” because they “fail to allege any crime or violation of the law.” It further states that it is “a lawless process that violated basic due process,” and that its consideration would be “subverting the will of the American people.”
Every bit of that is utterly false and has no legal basis as a defense. The charge that there is no crime alleged is false because Trump’s efforts to coerce the Ukrainian president into aiding his scheme to smear Joe Biden is, in fact, a crime. So is withholding military aid allocated by Congress and signed by the President. So is ignoring Congressional subpoenas for documents and ordering his subordinates not to cooperate. But even if those weren’t crimes, it wouldn’t matter because the Constitution doesn’t require violations of criminal statutes. For one thing, there weren’t any criminal statutes at the time the Constitution was written.
As for due process, that is a right granted in courts of law conducting criminal prosecutions. Due process doesn’t apply here because impeachment is a political process conducted in the Congress. Even so, Trump was permitted to present his witnesses and defense, but he declined to do so. He even refused after complaining about not having such an opportunity. And he’s still refusing to allow witnesses and documents that he says are exculpatory…”
Trump’s team is what happens ‘when you don’t pay your legal bills’ article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.
The so-called lawyers that are pleading Trump’s case should be disbarred – and one should be convicted of aiding and abetting a treasonous president* – and never allowed to practice law again.
Is Trump the indispensable man? article from The Week.
Far from it, but his delusions take precedence over reality – he actually thinks the government can’t run without his profoundly corrupt and ignorant ass.
