Chronicling the misadventures of our forever Impeached 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 how his disintegration of the office of the presidency and this country is going to haunt us for years to come, three years of complete and utter corruption and ignorance from Trump’s failed presidency, once again Donnie openly admitted to committing crimes in front of a national audience, because he’s guilty as hell, Donnie has threatened GOP Senators that vote against him – which isn’t helping his case at all, how the Don does nothing but lie about everything and how it’s destroying what little semblance of Democracy is left in this country, the moronic irony of Trump and his family talking about Biden’s corruption, the Don is still trying to blame his predecessor for crimes he himself has committed and so much more.

The destruction done to this country by the most corrupt and ignorant president* in U.S. history – enabled by an equally corrupt and ignorant Republican Party – is going to haunt this country for years to come.
Trump’s attorneys argue that impeachment itself is no longer legal in superpower America article from The Daily Kos.
Arguing that Trump is above the law and it’s illegal to impeach him regardless of his profound corruption isn’t going to sit too well with the majority that didn’t elect his ignorant ass.

As usual, the Donald is trying to blame his failures and corruption on his predecessor, because he’s guilty of hell and his crimes are indefensible:

Your Guide To Every Day Of Trump’s First 3 Years As President article from Rantt.
The complete breakdown of Trump’s first 3 failed years of corruption and complete ignorance – with one more year left to go:
“Today is the 3rd anniversary of Donald J. Trump’s inauguration as the 45th President of the United States. Tomorrow is the first official day of his Senate impeachment trial, the 3rd in American history. How did we get here? How did one con man successfully transition from defrauding customers in his businesses to defrauding the American people while occupying the highest office in the land? How did one demagogue so effectively tap into the dark underbelly of botched Reconstruction America and twist the party of Lincoln into a state of such corrupt sycophancy that they’re willing to bring America to the brink of authoritarianism for the sake of maintaining power?
After analyzing and documenting every day of the last 3 years, my assessment of this era is blunt: The story of the Trump presidency is one of a privileged, unstable, ignorant, power-hungry egomaniac who has eroded the office the presidency and American norms with such ferocity that he’s undermined the very fabric of Western democracy in less than 3 years. President Trump’s corrupt, divisive, self-centered style of government has revealed the failures of America’s education system, the fragility of our institutions, and exposed the wide decency gap that has been hiding in plain view since the first African slave arrived in 1619. But what President Trump has also done is galvanize the majority of the country against everything he stands for, and awakened Americans to the necessity of their participation in democracy. This is also the story of America’s collective resilience.
President Trump walked into office with a series of domestic policy initiatives that sought to overwhelm Americans with chaos, target marginalized people, serve the 1%, and undo President Barack Obama’s legacy while simultaneously taking credit for his accomplishments. From his first week’s flurry of executive orders that included an attempt to ban Muslims to his migrant family separation policy, President Trump has blatantly allowed his personal bigotry to be reflected in official government policy. For many of these policies, cruelty was the point. For others, greed was their goal. After attempting to repeal the Affordable Care Act didn’t work, President Trump and the Republican Party passed a tax cut that disproportionally benefitted the top 1%. President Trump rolled back President Obama’s environmental protections, business regulations put in place to prevent another financial crisis, and healthcare cost-sharing reductions. This jealous obsession with trying to target Obama had wide-ranging ramifications, especially on the world stage.
One of President Trump’s first foreign policy moves was announcing that the U.S. would be withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord. This reckless move not only undermined the global effort to combat climate change, the greatest existential threat facing humanity, it also was the first of many efforts to erode U.S. alliances. President Trump has spent the majority of his presidency cozying up to dictators and attacking NATO allies. President Trump tore up the Iran Nuclear Deal that Iran was complying with and threatened to sanction our allies that did business with them. We’ve since seen the disastrous results of that decision, as well as President Trump’s decision to abandon the Kurds and cede key positions in Syria to Turkey, Russia, and Assad. President Trump’s foreign policy has largely bent towards placating Russia and other autocracies like Saudi Arabia. President Trump abandoned the Trans-Pacific Partnership and ceded the pacific to China’s influence. The trade war with China has done more to hurt the American consumers and farmers than it was worth. When it comes to North Korea, President Trump has given Kim Jong-Un decades of propaganda for absolutely nothing except the appearance of peace. Really, anywhere President Trump sees personal gain, he takes an opportunity, even if it runs contrary to America’s interests. This brings us to the Trump Administration’s unprecedented corruption…”
Trump’s impeachment defense rests on a foundation of falsehoods article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.
The delusions and lies the Don is basing his defense on are utter bullshit which normally would have resulted in his removal from office were it not for the fact that his enablers in the GOP controlled Senate are just as guilty as he is – for which there really is no defense.Continue reading
