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 the need for recognizing Trump as the corrupt con man that he is and removing him from office to help salvage whatever semblance of normalcy is left in this country, a look at all the lies Donnie has told about the coronavirus – followed by the truth, Trump’s credibility continues worsening with each passing day, the Donald’s pathological lies and delusions about COVID-19 keep coming fast and furious – resulting in a crashing economy and more people dying from the disease and so much more.
Washing our Hands of Trump and Powerlessness article from Counter Punch.
Recognizing Trump and his administration for the fraudulent cancer they are – along with his equally corrupt and Treasonous enablers in the U.S. Senate – and removing them come November will go a long way towards returning to whatever semblance of normalcy is left in this country.
Why can’t mainstream media stop echoing Trump’s coronavirus misinformation? article from Media Matters.
The media spreading Trump’s lies instead of labeling them for what they are is attributing to the growing panic of a population that is grossly misinformed about the coronavirus outbreak – and many of Donnie’s other ongoing criminal endeavors.
Here’s the anti-Trump coronavirus ad we were all eager to see article from The Daily Kos.
A look at a political ad that explains all the lies Donnie has told about the coronavirus, followed by the truth:
On virus missteps, Trump declares, ‘I don’t take responsibility at all’ article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.
Another look at Trump’s delusions of not being responsible for the fucked up coronavirus outbreak response he and his administration have failed so miserably at:
“On Friday afternoon, Donald Trump held an event in the White House Rose Garden to declare a national emergency. In the light of the coronavirus outbreak, the presidential announcement was not at all surprising, though the event itself was remarkable in its own right.
If you watched the gathering with the sound off and paid no attention to what was being said, there were some painfully obvious problems. For example, Trump crowded a group of officials and executives close to one another, before shaking participants’ hands. Several speakers, including members of the White House Coronavirus Taskforce, then manually adjusted the shared microphone.
The president’s remarks at the event made matters quite a bit worse. Trump made a series of bizarre and demonstrably false claims on everything from the Obama administration’s H1N1 response to a Google resource that’s still in development, from European travel restrictions to student-loan payments. The president even overstated the details surrounding plans for drive-through testing.
But there was one line in particular that’s likely to help define Trump’s response to the biggest crisis of his presidency…”

How the Don finally had such a shitty week that highlighted his lack of leadership skills which he couldn’t lie about or tweet away – despite his best efforts to do so.
How little Trump cares for workers – and how much he values corporate swamp monsters – is now on full display article from Alternet.
The joke of an amount that Trump is offering to pay Americans during the coronavirus outbreak compared to what he’s paying his fraudulent corporate friends is ridiculous – and more proof that he never cared about any of the morons that were stupid enough to vote for him.
Revising history, Trump makes bizarre claim about pandemic foresight article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.
Trying to rewrite his failed history on the coronavirus outbreak isn’t going to bode well for the Donald as everyone paying attention is well aware of the fact that he’s yet again lying his ignorant ass off – for two months it was a hoax to him:
The Fake News Media and their partner, the Democrat Party, is doing everything within its semi-considerable power (it used to be greater!) to inflame the CoronaVirus situation, far beyond what the facts would warrant. Surgeon General, “The risk is low to the average American.”— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 9, 2020
Trump slapped with a furious backlash after insisting he always treated coronavirus ‘seriously’ article from The Raw Story.
The lies being told by Donnie to try and rewrite history after his lackluster – borderline criminal – response to the coronavirus outbreak are coming back to bite his ignorant Orange ass:
“President Donald Trump was asked about his sober tone during the Monday press briefing and he claimed that he’s always taken the coronavirus as a serious threat.
But it was less than a month ago that Trump was blaming Democrats for allegedly spreading coronavirus hysteria.
“The Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus,” Trump said in North Carolina just three weeks ago. “One of my people came up to me and said, ‘Mr. President, they tried to beat you on Russia, Russia, Russia.’ That did not work out too well. They could not do it. They tried the impeachment hoax. … They tried anything. … And this is their new hoax.”
His chief of the economic council, Larry Kudlow, called it “relatively contained.”…”
Donald Trump would like everyone to say ‘thank you’ for his coronavirus actions article from CNN.
Regardless of the fact that his response from the getgo has been nothing short of a fucked up wet dream, the Don wants everyone to appreciate how ‘well’ he’s handled the coronavirus outbreak…

On the perils of having a criminal and his equally stupid cabal in charge of an outbreak that they can’t lie their way out of, which is wreaking all kinds of havoc in their land of delusion and how it’s going to cost him bigly.
GOP Group Uses Donald Trump’s Coronavirus Lies Against Him In New Attack Ad article from The Huffington Post.
A look at the lies and ignorance the Donald has utilized repeatedly since the coronavirus outbreak – for which he’s now busily trying to find a scapegoat and rewrite history for:
Trump spent weeks downplaying the coronavirus. He’s now pretending that never happened. article from Vox News.
Some examples from Trump himself, of how he hasn’t always taken the coronavirus ‘very seriously’:
“President Donald Trump has evolved on the coronavirus pandemic.
The president spent the first six weeks of the outbreak insisting that the situation was under control. He even characterized Democratic criticism of the federal government’s response, which has been lowlighted by an inability to test sufficient numbers of people for the virus, as “their new hoax.”
But this week, as the number of cases — and the death toll — rises and the economy looks increasingly bleak, Trump’s tone has shifted. In a notable development, Trump took a calm and measured tone during Monday’s press conference, deferring to experts on scientific questions and outlining the government’s social distancing guidelines.
“My administration is recommending that all Americans, including the young and healthy, work to engage in schooling from home when possible, avoid gathering in groups of more than 10 people, avoid discretionary travel, and avoid eating and drinking at bars, restaurants, and public food courts,” Trump said…”
Whiplash: Here are 4 blatant contradictions Trump just spewed to the American public during his rambling coronavirus presser article from Alternet.
Every day brings new delusions from our woefully ignorant, forever Impeached illegitimate president* and every time he opens his mouth nothing but lies come out:
11:47: *TRUMP SAYS FDA HAS APPROVED CHLOROQUINE FOR USE IN COVID-19— Emma Kinery (@EmmaKinery) March 19, 2020
11:48: *TRUMP SAYS STILL COLLECTING EVIDENCE OF CHLOROQUINE EFFICACY
11:48: *TRUMP SAYS CHLOROQUINE RISKS LOW AND ARE WELL-KNOWN

‘You’re A Terrible Reporter!’ Trump Rages At NBC’s Peter Alexander In Bonkers Press Conference article from Crooks and Liars.
Holding daily press conferences – which a normal leader would use to help people, express empathy, etc. – to try and improve your already non-existent credibility and popularity – isn’t working too well for Trump:
Trump’s latest coronavirus press briefing was a disastrous failure in leadership article from Vox News.
Some of the many reasons why Trump is failing miserably at a time when this country needs clear, intelligent guidance during a national crisis like the coronavirus outbreak – and how we’re stuck with a fucking moron who isn’t capable of leading anyone or anything.
This Isn’t Trump’s Katrina. It’s Stupid, Slow-Motion 9/11. article from Slate.
The profound ignorance of our lackluster leader and the moronic minions that comprise his administration are causing more problems than anything else:
““We were very prepared,” the president said Thursday, during the daily coronavirus press briefing. He was replying to—if not responding to—a question about why the United States had been completely unprepared to test for the disease, even as other countries launched large-scale programs to track it and to try to control its spread. “The only thing we were not prepared for was the media,” he added. “The media has not treated it fairly.”
The president was, fitting the seriousness of the occasion, so far opposite the truth that he accidentally came around to accuracy again. If the media were treating the outbreak fairly, Donald Trump would not be able to stand at the presidential lectern and talk about how prepared he’d made sure America was without someone shoving him aside to hold up a picture of a dying nursing home patient, or to read a plea from doctors who don’t have enough masks. The only questions to ask him are: Why are you still here? And how many more people are going to be dead before you leave?
But for now, the president is still allowed to keep kidding himself. His only purpose is to be the most important person in the world, and since he couldn’t stop the virus from becoming the most important story in the world, he has to present himself as the person who’s in charge of it. It doesn’t matter how contrary that is to the facts, or even to his posture of a week ago. He now gets to stand up and tell us the problem is serious, but it’s getting better, and also, it was never really that serious, believe him.
There was a moment—hard to remember now, but real—when it seemed that Hurricane Katrina had not been so bad. It really did happen that way. The forecasts before the storm made landfall had been so apocalyptic as to be unbelievable, promising that Category 5 winds would demolish the entire city of New Orleans where it stood. And then the storm hit, and the first word about it was that the city’s buildings were in fact still standing. The predictions had been scary, but it had come out OK. Only then the water kept rising and the levees failed and everything fell apart…”
Over-promising and under-delivering during a crisis is a toxic combination article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.
Constantly lying during the coronavirus outbreak – and about everything else – has left Donnie no credibility whatsoever while going a long way to making sure he’s a one term president*.
Short-term thinking plagues Trump’s coronavirus response article from Politico.
Sadly for the Donald, he has problems with anything that involves thinking since he’s incapable of it, and it has only helped the coronavirus outbreak spread exponentially.
Rachel Maddow slams Trump’s COVID-19 lies in epic rant. article from The Daily Kos.
Allowing the Donald – who keeps spewing his pathological lies routinely every time he opens his mouth – to continue spreading lies about COVID-19 is unacceptable:
Rachel Maddow: If Trump Can’t Stop Lying, Stop Broadcasting His Lies article from Forbes.
Since Trump has issues with ever telling the truth whenever he speaks to the public, the media needs to quit broadcasting his lies live and put disclaimers and fact checks up if they do air it:
“At what point does taking the government’s daily coronavirus briefing become malpractice on the part of broadcasters? If experience tells us that day after day the President of the United States makes false or misleading statements about the pandemic that has shut down huge parts of America and forced millions to shelter in their homes, is returning the next day to air the next episode a rational decision—since it’s tradition to hear what the leader of the free world has to say?
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow wondered about that Friday night, noting that yet again, the daily briefing included President Trump celebrating things that sounded good—and perhaps gave Americans hope in the face of a frightening global crisis—but ultimately, as she put it, was Trump “telling people a fairy tale,” which she described as “cruel, and harmful, and needlessly diverting and wildly irresponsible from anyone in any leadership role.”
Maddow argues that in this critically serious time, letting Donald Trump speak without an editor or fact-checker isn’t just bad journalism, it’s dangerous. People are making life-and-death decisions about how they lead their lives, and how seriously to take the spread of coronavirus. “There is a clear pattern here, in this crisis of the president promising stuff that America would love to hear, but it’s not true,” Maddow said. “The specific way the president is failing now is clear…we should inoculate ourselves against the harmful impact of these ongoing false promises and false statements by the president.”
The presidential press conference is an American tradition, of course, made famous in the modern era by John Kennedy, whose ease in front of the camera—and with reporters—established an expectation that presidents would present themselves to journalists regularly and take questions. This tradition was upended by Donald Trump, who enjoys being on television but not being challenged. Case in point just yesterday, when NBC’s Peter Alexander asked what he himself described as a “softball” question about the president’s message to Americans who were scared in the face of the coronavirus. Instead of seizing on the opportunity to calm the country, he attacked the reporter, NBC News, and NBC parent company Comcast…”
Biden to Trump: Start acting like ‘a wartime president’ article from Politico.
The delusions of being a wartime president and handling the coronavirus outbreak responsibly are addling Trump’s miniscule brain as the truth reveals that he is nothing more than a lying fraud whose cons are growing old and dangerous:

Every coronavirus outbreak update that Trump partakes in trying to gain popularity and stay in the spotlight results in his telling more lies that will inevitably end up getting people killed and Joe Biden is doing something about it:

Trump Is in a Frenzy Over the Economy – Not So Much the Virus article from The Daily Beast.
If the Donald spent as much time worrying about the coronavirus outbreak as he does the already crated economical implosion he might be a little more effective – and his popularity might be a little higher but his credibility is long gone…
Trump Toys With a Let-Them-Die Response to the Pandemic article from The Nation.
A look at why Trump – being the ignorant fuck that he is – foolishly believes that having everyone mingle with sick people instead of doing what should be done to save the economy and quell the outbreak:
“On Sunday night, 10 minutes before midnight eastern time, Donald Trump tweeted, “WE CANNOT LET THE CURE BE WORSE THAN THE PROBLEM ITSELF. AT THE END OF THE 15 DAY PERIOD, WE WILL MAKE A DECISION AS TO WHICH WAY WE WANT TO GO!” As so often, the exegetical mystery of Trump’s comments can be clarified by returning to the most important source of his worldview, Fox News. Earlier in the evening, Fox News Host Steve Hilton ranted against Trump’s medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci, who advocated draconian social distancing measures to slow the spread of the coronavirus until the medical system can be strengthened to deal with it.
Hilton argued that these measures would cause more damage than the coronavirus itself. “You know that famous phrase, ‘The cure is the worse than the disease’?” Hilton asked. “That is exactly the territory we are hurtling towards.”
The push for social distancing measures, including closing schools and restaurants, is relatively new. Closure of these institutions was only announced in New York on March 15. Yet there are signs that many on the political right—and even centrist business leaders—are already sick of the public health emergency. They want the economy to go back to normal and are promoting fringe ideas in an attempt to discredit mainstream epidemiologists.
It’s unclear whether Trump can actually roll back any of the existing quarantine measures, which are set by governors and mayors. But Trump can certainly affect the behavior of his supporters. If millions of Trump fans think that quarantines aren’t worth the aggravation, they are much more likely to violate them. That’s the most likely danger of Trump’s tweet and his potential shift in policy…”

Always the showman who can’t stand being ignored – regardless of the fact that his corrupt ignorant ass should be – the Don can’t stand not being in the spotlight and regaling in all the accolades his delusional little brain believes he deserves:
The Greatest Scandal In American History: The Trump Cover Up Of A Looming Public Health Crisis. article from The Daily Kos.
A look at how Trump’s profound corruption and ignorance in his coronavirus outbreak response and the devastation it will end up causing once all is said and done should and could be criminal.
Trump uses daily coronavirus briefings to replace campaign rallies article from CNN.
A look at why some networks cut his coronavirus ‘press briefings’ short since all he does is lie, misinform, self-aggrandize and go off on various unrelated tangents, trying desperately to recapture the energy from his Nazi rallies that have been cancelled until further notice:
“(CNN) – President Donald Trump complained that he is treated unfairly. He touted his tax cuts. He told his usual lie about how he is the one who got the Obama-era Veterans Choice program passed into law. He told a story about how he had never been booed before 2015. He said, three times, that his wife is “very popular.”
The coronavirus crisis has prevented Trump from holding his signature campaign rallies. So he has turned his daily White House coronavirus briefings, like the one on Sunday, into a kind of special spinoff of the familiar Trump Show — replete with all the usual misinformation, self-promotion and potshots.
Trump’s marathon Monday briefing ran for more than 100 minutes.
Like his arena addresses, his appearances in the briefing room tend to follow a rough formula. Here’s what they usually involve…”
‘Wartime President’ Trump has found his 2020 strategy – posing as the real thing on television article from Alternet.
Ever the petty little conman, the Donald’s delusional little brain believes he’s acting presidential during the coronavirus outbreak – while acting anything but – is going to help him get re-elected, when in reality it just highlights his ignorant incompetence more.
Trump’s pivots on the coronavirus are no longer just dizzying. Now they’re dangerous article from NBC News.
Delusions of claiming to be a ‘war time president’ while foolishly claiming victory and trying to rush everyone back to work despite the coronavirus outbreak isn’t working too well for the Donald.
