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.

Trump’s Impeachment Defense Is Now Blaming Obama article from PoliticusUSA.
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.
Trump brags about obstructing Congress during remarks about his impeachment trial for obstructing Congress article from The Raw Story.
The fact that Trump is such a fucking moron is what makes him so dangerous and the fact that the GOP keeps trying to cover it up speaks volumes:

“They’ve been accused of orchestrating a criminal conspiracy. They’ve been dubbed ethically compromised. They’ve been labeled liars. They could even be called to testify in the impeachment case they were hired to combat.
In the opening days of Donald Trump’s Senate trial, it has at times felt like the president’s lawyers are his co-defendants.
“Nonsense,” said Jay Sekulow, the longest-serving personal attorney to Trump, when asked about the litany of allegations flying around Capitol Hill.
Welcome to impeachment in the Trump era, where the president cheers on his attorneys as they blow right past any suggestion that they themselves were direct witnesses — if not culpable — in a scheme that helped make their client America’s third chief executive to be impeached…”

A Complete Analysis Of Trump’s 157th Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt.
Each week bring us more evidence of Trump’s Illegitimacy and why he has no business occupying the White House – because he’s profoundly corrupt and stupid as hell, not to mention guilty as hell:
““And you know you can’t trust this president to do what’s right for this country. You can trust he will do what’s right for Donald Trump. He’ll do it now. He’s done it before. He’ll do it in the next several months; he’ll do it in the election if he’s allowed to. This is why, if you find him guilty, you must find that he should be removed. Because right matters. Because right matters. And the truth matters. Otherwise, we are lost.” – Adam Schiff
The impeachment trial of President Donald Trump has begun. There are some unmistakable truths that this week highlighted. President Trump definitely did what he is accused of. Trump’s lawyers have no credible defense of his actions. The House Impeachment managers made an overwhelming case. And Rep. Adam Schiff, with his tireless performances defending American democracy, rose to the occasion and solidified his place as a historic figure of profound eloquence and patriotism.
During their opening arguments, the House impeachment managers made a compelling case, proving President Trump’s execution of the Ukraine extortion plot. Trump’s lawyers, on the other hand, unleashed an avalanche of lies that further eroded the office of the presidency as their gaslighting words echoed off the walls of the once hallowed Senate chamber. Meanwhile, more evidence was obtained by House impeachment managers, including audio of President Trump saying “take her out” when speaking about former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at a dinner with Lev Parnas in 2018.
By the weekend, excerpts from former Trump National Security Adviser John Bolton’s book confirmed that President Trump told Bolton he would not release the aid to Ukraine until he got the investigations into his political targets. This makes it impossible for vulnerable purple state Senate Republicans to justify voting against Bolton testifying or the inclusion of new documents. The fact around 70% of Americans want witnesses and documents in the trial doesn’t help them either. More about the impeachment trial is covered in the day-by-day breakdown below, but first, the pattern of GOP indecency was further exposed this week…”

The Senate’s Make Believe Trial of Donald Trump article from Counter Punch.
On the illegal sham that is the Don’s ‘trial’ being held by the Senate – who is going to pay a big price for aiding and abetting the most corrupt piece of shit to ever hold the office of the President:
“President Trump is on trial.
As in a real trial, charges have been asserted: the House alleges high crimes and misdemeanors. A judge presides: Chief Justice John Roberts sits in his fine black robe at the head of the chamber. There are prosecutors (the House impeachment managers) and defense counsel (Trump’s “A-team” of lawyers).
And pursuant to our Constitution, the jurors — the members of the Senate — have sworn an oath to render “impartial justice” at the end of the trial.
So, it looks like a trial. Except that in my 40 years as a lawyer, I’ve never seen a trial that corruptly flouted the basic requirements for fairness as brazenly as this one…”

Impeachment and the State of the Union: How Trump Attacks the System with Disinformation article from Mother Jones.
All Trump ever does is lie about everything all the time which fills the airwaves with disinformation that only his moronic minions are stupid enough to believe:
“It was rather fitting that Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech, which pundits praised as a strong and effective rallying cry for his base, occurred the night before he was acquitted in his impeachment trial, for each of these dubious achievements relied upon the same crucial element: disinformation. And both the just-concluded impeachment trial and the ongoing election are tests of whether the American political system can adequately handle and reject Trump’s never-ending and pervasive disinformation.
In the most showbiz-iest speech of his presidency, Trump drew heavily on his experience in reality-TV, a medium that, despite its moniker, is predicated on the falsification of reality. He orchestrated the reunion of a soldier with his family. He doled out a scholarship to a needy kid. And he departed from describing the state of the union to award the nation’s highest civilian honor, the Medal of Freedom, to a man who has a long history of hurling racist, misogynistic, and hateful rhetoric. Trump combined these story segments with an orgy of self-praise, declaring that he single-handedly rescued the economy, that he revived American manufacturing, that he protected Americans with pre-existing conditions from losing health care, and that he moved millions of low-income people out of poverty and off a dependence on food stamps. None of that was true.
Fact-checkers immediately reported these were false assertions. The moment Trump bleated, “If we had not reversed the failed economic policies of the previous administration, the world would not now be witness to America’s great economic success,” tweets went flying to note the obvious: more jobs were created in the last three years of the Obama administration than during Trump’s three years as president. When Trump proclaimed the US economy was moving at an “unimaginable” pace, other tweets noted that the US economy grew 2.3 percent in 2019, matching the average rate for the past decade and far below the 3-percent Trump had promised. “We will always protect patients with pre-existing conditions.” No, in court cases, the Trump administration has taken steps that would eviscerate or end those protections.
All these lies were not big news, merely the falsehoods Trump has uttered many times before. This was dog-bites-man stuff. Nothing to see. But they serve a purpose beyond pathological self-aggrandizement. They reinforce Trump’s standing with his supporters. Sure, his political foes and whiners in the media can easily point out the falsity of these statements. But with his fellow Republicans loudly applauding them, these lies shoot across the information ecosystem—Jake Tapper and Brian Williams can’t slow them down—and register with millions who want to believe Trump. These folks don’t care how many Pinocchios a Washington Post columnist will throw at Trump, especially when the entire GOP and the conservative media world of Fox News, Limbaugh, and others are constantly enabling the prevaricator-in-chief. In Disinformation We Trust—that’s the secret motto…”

Trump’s acquittal has unleashed the most ‘corrupt, unfit, demented and malevolent president’ ever: columnist article from Alternet.
Giving our treasonous president* free reign to continue committing his crimes with total impunity isn’t going to bode well for the GOP Senate or the rest of us – and it’s up to us to take him down and remove him in November:
“In a scorching column for the Daily Beast, David Rothkopf accused Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Attorney General Bill Barr of standing by while President Donald Trump purges anyone who crossed him with their testimony during his impeachment trial, with the columnist saving most of his vitriol for Republicans who are letting the president continue to break the law.
In short, he blamed the entire Republican Party apparatus of giving more power to “the most corrupt, unfit, demented and malevolent president” in history.
“Donald Trump unleashed a Friday night massacre at the end of the week the Senate acquitted him, one that reveals yet again not only who Trump is but how he intends to act thanks to the carte blanche to abuse his powers handed him by the Senate and his attorney general,” Rothkopf writes while noting the firings of Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, his brother and EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland.
“Their firings and forced departures from their jobs are, by any definition, retaliation against witnesses in the case against the president. That’s a crime. But of course, that crime will never be enforced because the U.S. government agency responsible for enforcing such laws, the Department of Justice, has been taken over by an attorney general who has perjured himself before Congress, violated his oath and placed the protection of the president ahead of the interests of the American people to whom he owes his highest duty,” he wrote. “Between Barr and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Donald Trump has been given free rein to be his worst self. And Trump never disappoints those who expect the worst of him.”…”

King Donald: After acquittal, Trump moves to seize power — and alter reality article from Salon.
After being acquitted by the GOP despite being guilty as hell, our wannabe dictator is going to make his moves – and it’s going to cost him and his enablers bigly as his delusions continue growing out of control:
“Donald Trump’s show-trial impeachment and “acquittal” was much better in the original Russian or German.
Last Wednesday of last week all 53 Republicans in the United States Senate voted to acquit Donald Trump on the charge of obstruction of Congress. Despite overwhelming evidence — including Trump and his own minions’ public admissions — Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah was the only Republican to partly respect the Constitution and rule of law by voting to impeach Donald Trump for abuse of power. Senate Democrats, on the other hand, voted unanimously to convict Donald Trump on both counts.
In short, the Republican Party is more loyal to power than to the Constitution. Republicans all know that Trump was guilty as charged, and chose to acquit him anyway.
