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:
Today’s misadventures of our forever Impeached malignant minority-elect president* begins with how the coronavirus pandemic and his treasonous response to Russian bounties on U.S. troops in Afghanistan have exacerbated the imminent implosion of his massive failure of a presidency, he is going to pay a big price for his criminally negligent failed response to the coronavirus pandemic, his niece confirms that all he ever does is lie about everything because it gives him pleasure, Donnie’s in trouble now because his delusional distractions and lies aren’t working any more and he’s not handling it well and so much more.
A Complete Analysis Of Trump’s 180th Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt.
More on the ongoing axiomatic corruption and stupidity being perpetrated by Trump who has failed miserably in more ways than one, but the coronavirus pandemic and his treasonous actions with Russian bounties on U.S. troops in Afghanistan are currently hurting him the most.
Millions of Americans are about to find out just how badly they’ve been screwed by Trump and the GOP article from The Daily Kos.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues raging and reversing the ‘gains’ made in jobs last month while the economy continues crashing and burning due to Trump’s criminal negligence in his failed pandemic response, people are going to be devastated as benefits budgeted to help everyone, especially unemployed, are about to expire at the end of July, and they are going to be pissed off royally as they should be…
Trump Blames Joe Biden For Violent Crime That Took Place Over 4th Of July Weekend article from PoliticusUSA.
The Don appears to have forgotten that he is currently the president* in his land of delusion in which he blames the Democratic presidential nominee for everything his failed criminal regime is responsible for:

The floor is collapsing under Trump as COVID-19 hits his base article from Alternet.
Now that the rapidly expanding coronavirus pandemic is destroying states that voted for his corrupt and ignorant ass, Donald is losing more of his base and he can’t handle it:
“I have long argued that conservatives’ innate empathy deficit requires them to suffer directly from societal problems and controversies before they will support basic concepts, like the value of the social safety net or the importance of medical research or the morality of same-sex marriage. We’ve seen this play out with the COVID-19 crisis, as the virus first hit urban centers and coastal regions rather than Republican strongholds.
Republican governors, with only a few exceptions, did not take the pandemic seriously enough and put too much emphasis on reopening their economies. They are now suffering the consequences, and their constituents are turning on them, and on the president. Gallup shows Trump’s approval rating sinking to 38 percent, and the explanation is based almost entirely on new people being impacted by COVID-19.
Pew Research Center polls show Trump’s approval is slipping fastest in the 500 counties where the number of cases have been more than 28 coronavirus deaths per 100,000 people.
Pew surveyed voters in late March and the same people again in late June, and found 17% of those who approved of the president in March now disapprove…”
Rachel Maddow Zeroes In On Central Theme Of New Tell-All Book: Trump’s Favorite Hobby Is Lying article from PoliticusUSA.
A new tell-all book by Trump’s niece reveals some new things and confirms a lot of other things, including the fact that all he ever does is lie about everything:
"The plot point that you keep coming back to in every anecdote about him, both with the family and in dealing with the public and in business, is just about how easily he lies," Maddow says, referring to the new tell-all book written by the president's niece. #ctl #p2 #maddow pic.twitter.com/pEfHfai0Ke— PoliticusUSA (@politicususa) July 8, 2020
Why Trump can’t make his anti-protest message stick article from The Week.
Aside from the fact that our diaper dictator is a profoundly corrupt moron, Trump is incapable of acknowledging the fact that more people approve of Black Lives Matter and protesting police brutality than approve is him and his message, like his presidency, is failing miserably.
Trump Is Trying to Hide US and Israeli War Crimes by Attacking the International Criminal Court article from Truthout.
Aiding and abetting Israel’s War Crimes in Gaza and trying to cover up his own as well could prove problematic for the Don as his failed tenure continues spiraling out of control.
In 2020, Trump’s distraction superpowers have finally stopped working article from Salon.
Our diaper dictator excels at creating distractions with his lies and delusions in an effort to keep his growing list of crimes out of the limelight, but We the People have wised up and his bull shit isn’t working any more – and he’s not handling it well because everyone can see how profoundly corrupt and idiotic he is as well as how much of a failure he really is:
“Donald Trump is dumb — so dumb he literally suggested on live television that scientists should explore injecting household cleaners into people’s lungs to cure the coronavirus. But due to what appears to be a serious and undiagnosed personality disorder — his niece Mary Trump, who is a clinical psychologist, suggests it’s likely narcissism or sociopathy — Trump managed to stumble backwards into a strategy that works well with the 24-hour cable news ecosystem of national politics. Actually, “strategy” may be too strong a word, but it’s inarguable that Trump’s short attention span, impulsive nature and all-consuming corruption have meant a constant deluge of scandals and outrages, with each one knocking the last one out of the headlines.
The result has, impossibly, redounded to Trump’s advantage. Because no one scandal lingers in the headlines and cable chyrons too long, his scandals and failures have taken on an ephemeral nature. Much of the public, which only half watches the news at best, has no idea how serious the situation is, since no single story sticks around long enough to make an impression on voters who aren’t compulsive political junkies. Even those of us who spend 12 hours a day engaged with the news cycle lose track of how serious the situation is.
Remember Hurricane Maria? The assassination of Qassem Soleimani? The fraudulent Trump University? The Trump-Putin summit in Helsinki? Trump does one evil or stupid or corrupt or criminal thing after another, and no one can keep up with it all. In contrast, Hillary Clinton was sunk by a single scandal that shouldn’t have even been a scandal — her use of a private email server — but got so much sustained attention for months that it came to define her candidacy.
But 2020 appears to be the year that Teflon Don’s superpower of distracting us from one scandal with the next one is finally starting to fail him. He now faces two stories that he can’t push out of the headlines, no matter what outrageous things he says or what antics he pulls: The coronavirus pandemic and the Black Lives Matter protest movement. Going by his abysmal approval ratings, it appears that Trump is just as vulnerable as any other politician to being defined by a negative story that lingers in the headlines day after day, week after week, month after month…”
Why The Supreme Court’s Tax Rulings Are Bigger Than Trump article from Rantt.
Surprisingly, Trump’s two appointed ‘Justices’ actually voted against him and made it loud and clear that no president is above the law – especially when they’re forever impeached and illegitimate, and his highness is not happy because he’s in deep shit once he’s voted out of office and he does not have absolute immunity regardless of the many delusions in his alternate reality.
President Winning-By-Losing Is, In Fact, Losing article from The New Yorker.
Focusing all his delusions on his reelection instead of handling the coronavirus pandemic has sunk the Donald’s presidency and he will not recover from it and his failed presidency is in free fall.
Why Trump Is So Enraged at the Supreme Court article from Vice News.
The Don is melting down big time at SCOTUS because they opened the door for an investigation that his personal AG Barr can’t cover up and sweep away, and he’s screwed and he knows it.
As case totals climb, Trump flunks test on testing (and arithmetic) article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.
Donnie can’t seem to fathom that people aren’t listening to his lies about the coronavirus because it’s based in his delusional alternative reality, not based on fact:
“At a strange White House event on school re-openings this week, Donald Trump, unprompted, peddled a familiar claim: “Because we’re doing more testing, we have more cases. If we did half the testing, we would have far fewer cases. But people don’t view it that way.”
What the president still struggles to understand is that “people don’t view it that way” because such an assertion doesn’t make any sense.
He nevertheless brought the same claim to Twitter again this morning…”
For the 1/100th time, the reason we show so many Cases, compared to other countries that haven’t done nearly as well as we have, is that our TESTING is much bigger and better. We have tested 40,000,000 people. If we did 20,000,000 instead, Cases would be half, etc. NOT REPORTED!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 9, 2020
Trump only has one real skill: Corruption article from The Week.
Trump is and always has been a completely corrupt fraud and it’s the only thing he knows, so when it’s compounded by his profound stupidity, it can create some real issues for him and it’s time to hold him accountable for his Treason.
BREAKING: Donald ‘Law And Order’ Trump Commutes Roger Stone’s Sentence article from Crooks and Liars.
Revealing yet again that Donnie’s ‘Law and Order’ only applies to freeing his corrupt cronies and not the actual rule of law, he once again gave us more evidence of his axiomatic corruption and why it’s time to hold him accountable after he’s removed from office:
This is tantamount to Stone saying, ‘commute my sentence (to probation) or I will talk.’ If Trump now does so, it will be a corrupt exercise of the pardon/commutation power. Recall, Bannon testified at Stone’s trial that Roger was “the Trump campaign’s access point to Wikileaks.” https://t.co/Os7VxRwO4y— Glenn Kirschner (@glennkirschner2) July 10, 2020
Trump has committed at least 11 disgraceful acts just since April: conservative article from The Raw Story.
How Trump – the most corrupt and idiotic, forever impeached illegitimate president* – has cemented his place in history as the worst president ever, and he keeps setting new records which will not bode well for him.
Coverup Complete: Trump Commutes Roger Stone’s Prison Sentence article from Talking Points Memo.
Cementing his presidency as the worst in history was confirmed yet again when he decided to commute convicted felon Roger Stone’s sentence for keeping his crimes covered up:
“The White House announced Friday that President Trump is commuting the prison sentence of his longtime friend and sometimes campaign adviser Roger Stone, the culmination of a scheme one federal judge called a coverup for the President.
While the President has broad constitutional authority to issue commutations and pardons, his move to rescue Stone from his prison sentence is perhaps the most extreme example yet of the President’s eagerness to shield his allies from the criminal justice system. Stone was scheduled to surrender on Tuesday.
The commutation was announced in a ranting statement ostensibly issued by White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.
It called Stone the “ victim of the Russia Hoax” pushed by “the out-of-control Mueller prosecutors” who “took pains to make a public and shameful spectacle of his arrest.”…”

A damning look at some of the many crimes committed by Trump and his ilk while screwing over the public, including the moronic minions that voted for him:
What Trump’s changing Twitter strategy tells us about 2020 article from NBC News.
Aside from his Twitter feed providing plenty of useful evidence once he’s out of office to convict him of all kinds of crimes, our Twitter tyrant’s feed also shows how delusional and desperate he is and has become.
By commuting Stone’s sentence, Trump continues a conspiracy that never ended article from The Editorial Board.
By corruptly commuting his previous fixer’s sentence, the Don has revealed that he is the most corrupt, idiotic president* in history and that there is a reason he is and always will be illegitimate:
“It’s hard to know where to begin discussing the president’s commutation of Roger Stone’s sentence. So let’s start with what it means. It’s not a pardon. Donald Trump’s goombah is still a felon convicted of witness tampering and lying to the US Congress. He plans to appeal the guilty verdict. “Commutation” merely means he won’t go to jail.
The move was widely expected in Washington. Only the timing was in doubt. The president had hoped to wait until after the election, according to Bloomberg News, but Stone appears to have forced his hand. He feared prison would expose him to the new coronavirus, which can be fatal to people his age (67). Stone told a journalist Thursday that he believed the president would commute his sentence, because he stayed quiet while under pressure to cooperate. That statement, given the day before his 40-month sentence was to begin, was widely interpreted to mean: do it now or I start singing.
What tune? Well, probably that Stone was the intermediary between Trump—not his campaign staff, but Trump himself—and Wikileaks. Wikileaks, you’ll recall, is the anti-secrets organization that received tens of thousands of documents stolen from the Democratic National Committee and associates of the Democratic nominee. They were released, most memorably, during the 2016 Democratic National Convention to sow chaos and, later that year, to distract from the grab-’em-by-the-pussy video. This tranche of emails was stolen by Russian intelligence officials working at the personal direction of Vladimir Putin, who was waging a one-sided war against Hillary Clinton.
The link between Trump and the Kremlin has been suggested since before Robert Mueller started investigating Russia’s violation of our national sovereignty. It was clearest after Buzzfeed sued for the release of unredacted portions of his report that involved Stone. “The new revelations are the strongest indication to date that Trump and his closest advisers were aware of outside efforts to hurt Clinton’s electoral chances,” Jason Leopold et al. reported June 19, “and that Stone played a direct role in communicating that situation to the Trump campaign. Trump has publicly denied being aware of any information being relayed between WikiLeaks and his advisers.”…”

Unsurprisingly, the Don has done nothing but lie during his failed tenure since that’s all he knows how to do, besides committing fraud and other crimes…
The end of the Trumpian tragedy article from Alternet.
All the lies, bull shit and crimes from Trump the past few years – as well as his entire life – are finally catching up with him in real time and he’s not handling it well:
“For a long time, the GOP has pursued a political and policy agenda that makes the world worse for most of us. Donald Trump, of course, has done this with particular vigor and cruelty. The Democrats, alas, have too often been complicit (and sometimes enthusiastic) collaborators.
Generally speaking, this effort has made “sense,” in an appalling sort of way. Cutting taxes for the rich, crushing unions, scrapping environmental and work place safety regulations, ignoring climate change, subsidizing Big Oil, attacking voting rights, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security is bad for most of us. But it is good for the GOP’s rich patrons. Similarly, the racist narrative and policies that have facilitated all of this are cruel, mendacious and violent. But this narrative has rallied white voters, justified the neoliberal assault the welfare state, facilitated the re-election of Big Capital’s right-wing sycophants, and increased the incomes the rich. Appalling, but understandable.
In contrast, the Trump (et al.) approach to the Coronavirus pandemic is really quite crazy. It is idiotic, lethal, and cruel – nothing new there! But unlike the poisoning of our drinking water, the impoverishment of the working class, or mass incarceration, it is not good for the GOP or for Big Capital.
Denying the seriousness of this pandemic? Encouraging public gatherings? Encouraging people to ignore public health recommendations? Suppressing crucial data and discouraging testing? Ignoring and silencing public health experts? The consequences are as predictable as they are deadly. And – the hopes and fantasies of Trump, Larry Kudlow, and Ron DeSantis notwithstanding – it will not revitalize the economy. To the contrary! The economy cannot thrive with a lethal, highly contagious virus on the loose…”

The more desperate Donnie becomes to save his out-of-control failed presidency, the more delusional he is, making it painfully obvious that he is and always has been illegitimate:
Why is the stock market soaring amid a pandemic? Because Trump thinks that may save him article from Salon.
A look at another of Trump’s crimes – manipulating the stock market – and why he puts so much faith in it when it’s actually nothing but a massive Ponzi scheme:
“Donald Trump isn’t a smart man, but he knows how to manipulate the stock market. Not only is he allegedly engaging in market manipulation while president, but it’s a Trump con that goes back decades.
Back in October 2018, the New York Times published a Pulitzer Prize-winning profile of Trump’s extensive tax fraud schemes, and in the process of that reporting uncovered one of the ways Trump screwed with the financial markets. Journalists David Barstow, Susanne Craig and Russ Buettner reported that Trump would routinely engage in a scam known colloquially as “greenmailing.” It involved Trump, along with his father, Fred, as his “wing man,” exploiting the news media to pump up the price of a stock by planting rumors, devised by Trump himself, about a takeover. This would drive up the price of the stock, only for Trump to either sell or to demand “lucrative concessions from the target company to make him go away.”
All told, Donald Trump is a bit of an expert at blurting things that force the markets to bend to his will. And he’s engaging in similar shenanigans now, while Americans are dying by the thousands.
Before the pandemic and accompanying economic calamity hit us, it’s possible, while not proven, that Trump used his inexplicable trade war to seize control over the indexes. Since Trump launched the trade war with China in early 2018, whenever he’d announce good news about negotiations with Beijing — which were probably lies — the markets would rise. Whenever he’d announce bad news along those lines, the markets would collapse. We can see it in the charts: Since 2018, we’ve observed wildly unprecedented whiplash swings by hundreds of points in single days of trading, and most of those gains or declines were linked to the trade war…”
