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:
More of his lies and misinformation begins today’s misadventures of our forever Impeached malevolent minority-elect president* as he goes on Fox faux News – his Ministry of Propaganda – to spread his delusions without question about the coronavirus outbreak, his lies and misinformation are still taking center stage as he uses the coronavirus briefings as a pseudo rally to connect with his moronic minions by telling his usual lies and spreading his usual delusions, Trump keeps showing repeatedly that he is not now nor will he ever be presidential, how having a corrupt and ignorant White House has made the pandemic worse than it should have been, how he’s always trying pass responsibility for his massive failures onto everyone else and much more.
Here are 7 of the most ridiculous moments from Trump’s Fox News town hall article from The Raw Story.
As usual Trump lied during yet another of his infamous Fox faux News rallies where nothing based in reality comes from his lips but his moronic minions are still faithful:

Are Trump’s coronavirus briefings the new 2020 campaign rallies? article from The Guardian.
How the Donald is destroying his credibility by using the coronavirus outbreak briefings as a megaphone for pseudo rallies and purposely spreading lies and misinformation to his moronic minions on a daily basis and how the media needs to start delaying and fact checking them before they air.
CNN and MSNBC Staff Push Back on Airing Trump’s Coronavirus ‘Lies’ article from The Daily Beast.
On the many reasons not to air the Donald’s coronavirus press conferences because he has turned them into such a shit show and all he does is lie:
“During these briefings, Trump has lied that the virus is ‘something that we have tremendous control over’.”— Rachel Maddow MSNBC (@maddow) March 24, 2020
“He has promoted an unproven drug treatment.”
“He is spreading misinformation that could actually put people’s lives in danger.”https://t.co/mRyZwodeHL
Trump Campaign Threatens To Sue After Hard-Hitting Coronavirus Ad Airs article from Crooks and Liars.
An ad showing Donnie’s initial response to the coronavirus outbreak – it’s a hoax, etc. – is upsetting the Trump team because it’s factual and reveals the truth, which is something they’re deathly afraid of:
“The Trump campaign are big babies, like Fat Head himself. But they know if any of this criticism sticks with Trump’s cult-like base he’s toast in November. That’s why they’re calling out the lawyers.
The Trump campaign asked TV stations in swing states to take down an ad featuring the president calling coronavirus a “hoax” that his allies say is misleading…”

Honestly, most 4 year-old’s could probably give better advice than Trump, but Clinton’s tweet does bring up a very good point:

Can Trump’s daily disinformation show be saved? Yes – turn it into a vector for the truth article from Salon.
Airing Donald’s propaganda briefings with a split screen – one of him and one of the truth as it really is – is an option but it would probably be easier to tape the idiot and edit in facts and truth since he tells nothing but lies while self-aggrandizing and gaslighting everyone:
“The nation’s most eminent media critics are virtually unanimous that television networks should stop the live broadcasting of the White House’s daily coronavirus briefings, which Donald Trump has turned into a torrent of dangerous lies, misinformation and self-aggrandizement.
I totally agree that the broadcast networks shouldn’t break into regular programming to show the briefings live anymore. Watching them, unfiltered, makes their viewers dumber and less safe.
But I think the cable news networks would do well to keep the cameras rolling live — as long as they make some major changes in presentation. And I mean major.
Why show them? When the president of the United States gathers experts to his side and holds a briefing on a life-threatening public-health emergency the likes of which none of us have ever seen before, that’s news. It’s news that has immediacy. People who are into news deserve to hear it live…”
Trump Tells America Not To Blame Him For Record Setting Unemployment article from PoliticusUSA.
The Don thinks that Just because he’s responsible for fucking up the coronavirus outbreak doesn’t mean record setting unemployment is his fault – despite the obvious fact that it is – so he’s gaslighting America… again:

What Trump’s coronavirus briefings are really about article from The Week.
Trump started doing press briefings because he had to cancel his rallies and didn’t like the attention his VP was getting, and the only things his briefings accomplish is leaving the public uninformed and gaslighted while highlighting his chronic narcissism.
State Governments Step In as Trump Makes Lethal Mistakes in COVID-19 Response article from Truthout.
If the majority of us were stupid enough to listen to the Don and his equally corrupt and ignorant administration, the results of this pandemic could be a lot worse.
‘Don’t call the woman in Michigan’ – Trump’s pettiness was on display during Friday’s coronavirus briefing article from Vox News.
Every time he opens his mouth and starts spewing useless, petty lies and misinformation, he reveals exactly why he is not now nor will he ever be presidential:
“Americans would like to think the federal government would come to the aid of states who need help in emergency situations, regardless of whether their leaders are supporters of the president or not. President Donald Trump continues to not only fail to live up to that expectation, but to say the quiet part loud.
One day after a Fox News interview in which he tried to offload blame for the failures of the federal government coronavirus response effort onto blue state governors like Andrew Cuomo (NY), Jay Inslee (WA), and Gretchen Whitmer (MI), Trump took things up a notch.
During his press briefing on Friday, Trump said that he directed the man running the White House’s response effort, Vice President Mike Pence, to not call the Inslee and Whitmer — even as hospitals in each of their states approach the point of being overwhelmed by coronavirus cases — because they aren’t “appreciative” enough of his efforts.
“I tell him — I mean I’m a different type of person — I say, ‘Mike, don’t call the governor in Washington, you’re wasting your time with him. Don’t call the woman in Michigan,’” Trump said. “If they don’t treat you right, I don’t call.”…”

The lies coming from the Donald as he continues gaslighting the American public due to his profound corruption and ignorance never stop and you need to be very wary of them.
Trump Unravels In Saturday Twitter Meltdown As U.S. Becomes Coronavirus Epicenter article from PoliticusUSA.
The idiot who used to try and disguise his voice while calling media outlets claiming to be someone else to brag about his ‘accomplishments’ suddenly wants the press to name their sources – because they’re telling it like it is while revealing the never-ending depths of Trump’s corruption and stupidity as he melts down over his failed coronavirus outbreak response:
….very often FAKE NEWS. Lamestream Media should be forced to reveal sources, very much as they did in the long ago past. If they did that, the media would be trusted again, and Fake News would largely be a thing of the past!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 28, 2020
A wannabe dictator never cries: Except maybe for himself article from Salon News.
Everything Trump’s delusional little brains says and does is about him, and his failed coronavirus outbreak briefings where he lies and gaslights the nation for the benefit of his moronic minions who foolishly follow him unquestioningly are no different because he’s terrified of the election when he should be terrified about the pandemic:
“A photograph purporting to show Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte in tears, having lost all hope over the coronavirus toll in his country, made its way around cyberspace earlier this week. It turned out the photo wasn’t of Conte, but of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, and he wasn’t crying about losses due to coronavirus in his own country, but remembering a knife attack he suffered in 2018 during a speech he gave last year.
The photo of a national leader crying spread so widely because it was believable that the Italian prime minister might have broken down as he spoke of the huge number of deaths in his country. But we all know we’ll never see a photo of Donald Trump crying. Even if one is faked, it would be unthinkable, because no one can imagine that Trump would shed a tear over anyone but himself.
Trump won’t mourn for those suffering and dying from the virus, but he’ll accept the sympathies of the fawning suck-asses he surrounds himself with at the daily thank-a-thon that substitutes for the rallies he can no longer hold.
“Thanks to your leadership, Mr. President,” Vice President Mike Pence will typically begin, as he rolls out a list of dubious statistics for masks delivered or ventilators suddenly discovered hidden away in some warehouse. “Thank you, Mr. President … we all thank you … the nation thanks you,” another toady will parrot, likely some “acting” department head or secretary-of-something-or-another Trump’s thinking about going through the motions of nominating so he can keep another former lobbyist at the top of another important government agency…”
The missing six weeks: how Trump failed the biggest test of his life article from The Guardian.
Being an incompetent leader whose stupidity dominates every decision he makes is going to cost the U.S. a lot of lives and probably start a recession courtesy of the Donald who has no idea how to lead or be presidential.
Trump spreads lies, attacks healthcare workers in unhinged pandemic press briefing article from The Daily Kos.
Donnie’s press briefings have gone full rally mode as his lies and delusions continue unabated and it’s time for the press to stop airing them and realize that he is incapable of being presidential or leading in any way:

It is maybe worse than hoarding" — Trump again suggests that de Blasio, Cuomo and New York nurses are somehow conspiring to make unreasonable demands on the federal government for masks and ventilators pic.twitter.com/xP1NXEeCgR— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) March 29, 2020

Trump: Easier Voting Means Republicans Lose article from Crooks and Liars.
In his infinite idiocy – while talking to Fox faux News and spewing more delusional bull shit with no trace of fact or reality – Trump admitted that making voting easier would ensure that Republicans never win elections, since the only way they win now is through voter suppression and disenfranchisement:
“During yet another rambling phone-in segment with Fox and Friends…
And seriously, this is all Donald Trump WANTED out of the 2016 Presidential Election. A way to market the Trump name on the political scene and a permanent (yet flexible) paid segment on Fox and Friends. Damn the Electoral College to Hell.
And Stable Genius said the quiet part out loud about voting rights. He complained to the Fox and Friends hosts, (whose faces said “I wish I was dead”) about the Democrats and their push in the stimulus bill for vote-by-mail and extended voting times: “The things they had in there were crazy. They had levels of voting, that if you ever agreed to it you’d never have a Republican elected in this country again.”…”
Don’t fall for Trump’s effort to cast himself as the benevolent leader of a united country article from Salon.
The deceptions and delusions of trying to appear presidential during his daily propaganda press conferences only reveal how inept and ignorant he truly is, but the Don is trying to make himself look good for the upcoming elections – but as with everything else he does, he will fail miserably and the press needs to hold him accountable.
Trump’s Acquittal Is Making the Pandemic Worse article from The Editorial Board.
Since being absolved of committing Treason and other high crimes and misdemeanors and knowing he can do anything he wants with total impunity because the Senate is just as guilty as he is has made trying to get Trump to give a shit and do the right thing impossible because he’s profoundly corrupt and stupid – and nothing’s going to change that now except voting him out of office later this year.
Rachel Maddow Slams Donald Trump’s Fatal Insanity article from PoliticusUSA.
How the Don’s lack of intelligence and raging case of psychopathic narcissism has doomed the U.S. because there is no leadership in this coronavirus pandemic which will prove disastrously fatal – which typifies his failed presidency:

A president unfit for a pandemic article from The Boston Globe.
How having a White House marred by corruption and ignorance has resulted in making the coronavirus pandemic worse than it should have been, leaving blood on the Donald’s hands:
“Things fall apart; the center cannot hold,” wrote W.B. Yeats in 1919. A century later, it’s clear: The epicenter cannot hold. Catastrophic decisions in the White House have doomed the world’s richest country to a season of untold suffering.
The United States, long a beacon of scientific progress and medical innovation with its world-class research institutions and hospitals, is now the hub of a global pandemic that has infected at least 745,000 people and already claimed more than 35,000 lives worldwide. Now that the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the United States — more than 140,000 — has surpassed that of any other nation, Americans are consigned for the coming weeks to watching the illness fell family members and friends, and to fearing for their own fate as they watch death tolls rise.
While the spread of the novel coronavirus has been aggressive around the world, much of the profound impact it will have here in the United States was preventable. As the American public braces itself for the worst of this crisis, it’s worth remembering that the reach of the virus here is not attributable to an act of God or a foreign invasion, but a colossal failure of leadership.
The outbreak that began in China demanded a White House that could act swiftly and competently to protect public health, informed by science and guided by compassion and public service. It required an administration that could quickly deploy reliable tests around the nation to isolate cases and trace and contain the virus’s spread, as South Korea effectively did, as well as to manufacture and distribute scarce medical supplies around the country. It begged for a president of the United States to deliver clear, consistent, scientifically sound messages on the state of the epidemic and its solutions, to reassure the public amid their fear, and to provide steady guidance to cities and states. And it demanded a leader who would put the country’s well-being first, above near-term stock market returns and his own reelection prospects, and who would work with other nations to stem the tide of COVID-19 cases around the world…”
Not an April Fool: This humiliating failure is actually our president during a national crisis article from Salon.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo Blows A Hole In Trump’s Attempt To Blame States For His Coronavirus Failure article from PoliticusUSA.
Trump is unable to accept blame for all the things he fucks up – everything – so it’s never his fault, regardless of reality, but he always has to try and blame everyone else:

Trump’s Coronavirus Response Shows He’s Loyal Only to Himself article from Slate.
How all the lies spouted daily by our forever impeached illegitimate president* are only used to try and serve himself – despite the fact that it fails miserably like everything else he does – and how he tries to twist his lies and delusions into self-serving patriotism to use politically while not giving a shit about America or the morons that ‘elected’ him.
“Donald Trump says he’s a wartime president. “We’re at war, and we’re fighting an invisible enemy,” he declared last week. “We are all joined together as one people” against the coronavirus, he told Americans. “As long as I am your president, you can feel confident that you have a leader who will always fight for you, and I will not stop until we win.”
In many ways, we really are in a war against the virus. And much of what Trump is belatedly doing—shipping out virus tests and ventilators, for instance—will save lives. But primarily, he thinks about himself. That’s why he adds, “as long as I am your president.” Trump understands that he can improve his chances of reelection by appealing to patriotism, but he doesn’t understand what patriotism is. He’s using the language of national unity—as he has done so many times before—to pursue personal grievances, not to serve his country.
Throughout the crisis, Trump’s behavior has been selfish and partisan. He has blamed states for their own suffering. He has sent aid more promptly to some states than to others. He has demanded praise from governors and has refused to speak to those who, in his view, are insufficiently “appreciative.” He has refused to interact with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. He invited no Democrats to his signing of a bipartisan financial relief bill. As body bags pile up, Trump has used daily White House briefings—which are supposed to be about the virus—to complain that he’s mistreated by the press. On Thursday, after Democrats called for congressional oversight of the administration’s multiple failures in responding to the virus, he accused them of undermining America’s war against “this enemy.”
But Trump’s incomprehension of patriotism doesn’t just show up in his treatment of states, governors, and lawmakers. It also shows up in the way he treats other countries…”
