Misadventures of a minority-elect President 346

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:

Delusions and conspiracy theories designed to help him try and steal the election that he lost bigly begins today’s misadventures of our forever Impeached malevolent minority-elect president* as his desperation to avoid jail time when he’s out of the White House on January 20, 2021 grows and his failed presidency continues imploding bigly, a look at some – and there are many – of his dumbest moments in office that earned him the title of America’s most profoundly corrupt and ignorant president*, Trump’s list of Treasonous acts is growing and now he’s guilty of even more crimes after his illegal putsch resulted in the death of a Capitol Hill Police Officer, Donnie’s Treason will haunt him for the rest of his life and so much more. And so the criminal Trump regime is finally over.

Trump Is Going Full QAnon for His Final Month in Office article from Vice News.

The delusions and conspiracy theories over losing the election are wreaking havoc on Trump as his desperation to avoid accountability for his criminal actions in office continues growing so he’s doing everything he can to try and steal the election – though he’ll fail miserably as he always does.

True to form, Trump downplays Russia’s latest cyberattack article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.

As he did when Russia helped him ‘win’ the 2016 election despite losing the majority vote bigly, Donald is trying to deflect attention from Russia’s hacking the U.S. to keep his puppet master out of trouble while trying to blame someone else.

Remember that stupid thing Donald Trump did? Hard as it is to pick, here are the top 10 article from Salon.

There is no question that Donald J. Trump will go down in the history books as America’s most corrupt, forever twice impeached, illegitimate president* that was dumber than dirt – as he has proved bigly soooo many times:

What would actually happen if Trump tried the ‘martial law’ idea? article from The Week.

Aside from revealing new depths of his profound corruption and stupidity it would also – like his entire career and presidency – fail miserably and he will still be evacuating the White House on January 20, 2021:

“President Trump could “basically rerun an election” by sending the military into swing states, said Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, in a Newsmax interview last week. Martial law isn’t a big deal, Flynn continued. “It’s not unprecedented,” he said. “I mean, these people out there talking about martial law like it’s something we’ve never done — martial law has been instituted 64 times.”

Flynn isn’t alone in his open enthusiasm for precisely the military junta scenario the president’s supporters have spent four years dismissing as a fever dream of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Lin Wood, an attorney who sued to prevent the certification of the Georgia presidential election results, tweeted Saturday that “[p]atriots are praying” Trump will “impose martial law in disputed states.” Commenters at TheDonald.win, an online forum for supporters of the president, thrilled at the idea of a “mostly peaceful martial law declaration” but wondered, absurdly, whether it would accommodate their teenagers’ travel home from college or their wives’ scheduled c-sections. And then there’s Trump himself, who met with Flynn and other allies in the Oval Office this past Friday. The president reportedly expressed interest in Flynn’s idea.

Could this actually happen? Though it may simply be normalcy bias at work, I can’t really imagine federal troops marching through U.S. streets, scooping up voting machines and tossing anyone who objects before a military tribunal. Moreover, Trump’s other advisers in the Friday meeting reportedly opposed the plan in forceful terms, and a statement from Army leadership the same day made clear the military would take no role “in determining the outcome of an American election.”

That ought to be the end of a discussion that never should have begun. But this is Trump, a president who lackadaisically declared a national emergency so he could take money from Pentagon coffers to pursue a policy agenda Congress had specifically declined to fund. In that context, a lame-duck martial law attempt seems — well, not likely, but not entirely inconceivable. But still: What exactly would Generalissimo Trump do? What possible legal authority could he claim? With less than a month left in office, does he even have time to try what Flynn recommends? I put these questions and more to Cato Institute legal scholar and Overlawyered founder Walter Olson in an email interview this week…”

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 why he and his equally treasonous enablers in his administration need to be held accountable for their crimes, Trump’s disgraceful – not to mention profoundly corrupt and ignorant – endgame, Treason, Tax Fraud and Obstruction of Justice are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to crimes Donnie has committed and he’s going to be very busy trying to stay out of prison once Biden is inaugurated, how and why our national embarrassment has become a worldwide joke, why the Don’s despotic delusions of grandeur are failing miserably, the list of crimes he needs to be investigated for once he’s out of office keeps growing, the Donald is contemplating committing more Treason to try and steal the election – which will fail as does everything else he does if he tries and so much more.

When They Had to Kill the King. Learnings for the Post-Trump Age. article from Common Dreams.

Why it’s imperative that Trump be held accountable for the crimes he committed during his illegitimate tenure as president* and why silencing his profoundly corrupt and ignorant ass is necessary to help America heal from his failed tenure.

Keith Olbermann: They All Need To Be Prosecuted Or They’ll Try It Again article from Crooks and Liars.

Not holding the Don and his equally treasonous administration accountable for their multitude of crimes against the U.S. will enable future presidents to do the same:

Trump’s Disgraceful Endgame article from The National Review.

When a right-wing Conservative publication calls you out on your lies and propaganda regarding the election the Don lost bigly, you know he’s full of shit and using propaganda tactics to try and retain power isn’t going to work for him:

“President Trump said the other day that he’d leave office if he loses the vote of the Electoral College on December 14.

This is not the kind of assurance presidents of the United States typically need to make, but it was noteworthy given Trump’s disgraceful conduct since losing his bid for reelection to Joe Biden on November 3.

Behind in almost all the major polls, Trump stormed within a hair’s breadth in the key battlegrounds of winning reelection, and his unexpectedly robust performance helped put Republicans in a strong position for the post-Trump-presidency era. This is not nothing. But the president can’t stand to admit that he lost and so has insisted since the wee hours of Election Night that he really won — and won “by a lot.”

There are legitimate issues to consider after the 2020 vote about the security of mail-in ballots and the process of counting votes (some jurisdictions, bizarrely, take weeks to complete their initial count), but make no mistake: The chief driver of the post-election contention of the past several weeks is the petulant refusal of one man to accept the verdict of the American people. The Trump team (and much of the GOP) is working backwards, desperately trying to find something, anything to support the president’s aggrieved feelings, rather than objectively considering the evidence and reacting as warranted…”

Trump Spent Thanksgiving Weekend on a Misinformation Spree article from Vice News.

Using North Korean / Nazi propaganda tactics to try and steal an election that he lost bigly isn’t boding well for Donald, but it sure is riling up the minority of moronic miscreants that support his profoundly corrupt and ignorant ass.

No You Didn’t Win, Mr. President, Not Even Close: Trump Effort to Steal Election, Sow National Chaos Is Taking Place in Broad Daylight article from Common Dreams.

Trump’s delusions of winning the White House and lying his ass off are, as usual, on full display as the reality that his ass is in deep shit come January 20, 2021 takes front and center stage – and there isn’t a damn thing he can do about it.

‘Concede and Get the Hell Out'” Anger Grows as Trump Refuses to Admit Defeat article from Common Dreams.

How our diaper dictator refuses to accept the fact the he lost – again – and this time his shenanigans aren’t going to help him steal it back:

Trump’s Post-Presidential Criminal Nightmare Begins Now article from Vice News.

Despite his delusions, lies and fraudulent claims of fraud, Donnie knows he lost and his ass is in deep legal shit once he’s out of the White House:

“WASHINGTON — President Trump’s stunning defeat raises a wild new question: whether he might face criminal charges.

Trump’s presidential shield of protection from federal indictment is now officially scheduled to expire at the moment he steps down on Jan. 20, 2021. And there’s little telling how prosecutors will approach the pile of incendiary evidence he’s leaving behind.

A decision to charge Trump would raise the stunning spectacle of slamming a former American president in the dock, and risk subsuming President-Elect Joe Biden’s first term under churning controversy. The move would enrage Trump’s followers: Trump has painted himself as the victim of leftist anger and selective justice, and many of them would surely see any criminal charges in that same light, no matter how strong the evidence might be.

Yet if prosecutors reviewing the evidence conclude it contains clear and compelling proof of criminal violations, then forgoing prosecution in the name of national unity raises a different problem: That might encourage future presidents to lean into their worst instincts, break rules and commit crimes—with the assurance that the country couldn’t handle their criminal downfall…”

How our diaper dictator always tries to accuse Biden – and all his ‘political enemies’ actually – of the very crimes and other illegal actions that he himself is guilty of committing:

Losing Could Expose Trump To Prosecution For Any Number Of Crimes article from The Intercept.

A look at how Donald could face a multitude of crimes once he’s voted out of office due to his profound corruption and stupidity – as well as his delusions that he is above the law – for having the most corrupt administration in the history of this country:

“EVEN IF President Donald Trump loses on November 3, it’s hard to imagine that he’ll ever be convicted of any crime, much less serve time in prison.

That’s because, first and foremost, no former U.S. president has ever seen the inside of a cell — and not because all presidents have faithfully followed the law. Presidents accumulate huge favors owed, favors that they cash in, figuratively and literally, when they become former presidents. On the modest end of the spectrum, 20 wealthy friends of Ronald Reagan bought a mansion in Bel-Air, Los Angeles, for him and Nancy to live in when he left office. More significantly, ex-presidents receive political protection from their allies, as when Gerald Ford pardoned Richard Nixon for anything whatsoever he’d done in office.

And beyond anything concrete that a president does for the factions that back him, those factions also strenuously oppose any consequences for their president’s actions for reasons of basic class solidarity. If an ex-president can face consequences, that would suggest that people one step down the power ladder could too. And the people at the top of U.S. society see consequences like Leona Helmsley saw taxes: They’re for the little people.

That said, stranger things than the prosecution of Trump have happened: for instance, Trump being elected president in the first place…”

Most Presidents Who Lose Deal With Shame. Trump Could Have To Deal With Prison. article from The Huff Post.

The Coronavirus-Denier-In-Chief Proves His Strategy Doesn’t Work article from The Huff Post.

Denying and downplaying the Coronavirus has come roaring back and bitten Trump’s big Orange ass by making him sick and his staff is trying to hide it – karma is a mother you-know-what…

The future of the country hinges on Trump’s health – and we can’t trust he’s telling the truth article from Vox News.

Donnie’s criminal negligence during the whole Coronavirus Pandemic has resulted in over 220,000 U.S. deaths and from day one he has done nothing but lie repeatedly about everything, and now he’s about to pay the price in more ways than one:

With COVID Hitting the West Wing, What Happens When the President Is a Liar? article from Mother Jones.

The perfect example of what happens when reality and the delusional alternate reality of a pathological liar collide and this time the Donald won’t be able to handle it well because he will be the biggest loser.

‘Not a Tragic Accident – A Crime Scene’: Critics Say Trump Covid Diagnosis is a ‘Culminations’ of His Deadly Pandemic Response article from Common Dreams.

Why ‘We the People’ need to hope our diaper dictator recovers from the hoax he contracted – so he can be held accountable for the 220,000 plus deaths his ignorant corruption is responsible for:

“Contrary to the notion that the coronavirus “snuck up” on President Donald Trump just as it did far less powerful people across the U.S. and around the world, Trump’s announcement Friday that he tested positive for Covid-19 was—according to progressive critics—a direct and foreseeable consequence of the president’s months of lying, callous disregard for public health, and catastrophic mishandling of the federal government’s pandemic response.

In a tweet Friday morning, author and environmentalist Naomi Klein drew a striking analogy in an effort to place Trump’s diagnosis in the broader context of his administration’s failure to take the steps necessary to combat the pandemic—a failure that has resulted in more than 200,000 dead Americans and counting.

“Trump getting Covid is the epidemiological equivalent of a mass shooting where the shooter opens fire on a crowd and then turns the gun on himself,” Klein wrote. “Not a tragic accident—a crime scene.”

Klein repeated her argument in an interview on Democracy Now! and warned that the U.S. public must be “prepared for the president using the fact that he’s having to cancel campaign events for two weeks to try to further delegitimize elections.”…”

Donald Trump Is the ‘Single Largest Driver’ of COVID Misinformation, Study Says article from Vice News.

No shit, since all he does is lie pathologically and is personally responsible for the deaths of over 220,000 Americans from COVID-19, it’s not surprising that he is the largest source of COVID misinformation – he has A LOT of blood on his hands.

Will Trump’s Hoax Derail His Presidency?

C19 lies Trump from Pinterest

For more than three plus years now, since being ‘elected’ despite losing the popular vote by almost three million and winning the ‘Electoral College’ courtesy of less than 78,000 voters in three states, President* Donald J. Trump has fast tracked his profound corruption and stupidity to the national stage and provided more than ample evidence that his entire presidency never should have happened to begin with while littering his legacy with numerous acts of Treason – including obstructions of justice and colluding with Russia and Ukraine, which is still ongoing, to steal an election – crimes against humanity, multiple acts of domestic terrorism – which includes using toxic chemicals on peaceful protestors, inciting violence, and an endless myriad of other high crimes while pathologically lying about everything to constantly distract from the severity of his criminal actions, and now he has the Coronavirus.

Feeling emboldened after being enabled, aided and abetted by an equally corrupt ‘Attorney General,’ GOP controlled Senate and endless other unqualified frauds and felons that he has dubiously appointed to high positions in his cabal has only hastened his utter destruction of America under his fallacious guise of making it great again. Trump isn’t subtle about all the endless crimes he commits. He confesses publicly to them or takes to Twitter to deepen the holes that he’ll never be able to slither out of and all of them are on public record, with many more to be revealed by the State of New York if he doesn’t successfully steal the election in November. Committing more crimes by encouraging the terrorists at the core faction of his base to monitor polling places to intimidate and try to help him steal the election isn’t going to bode well for him either.

When the Attorney General illegally perverts the rule of law to aid and abet a forever impeached, arguably illegitimate president* to commit Treason and other high crimes and misdemeanors, extortion and a host of other felonies, the so-called law becomes non-existent and is weaponized for use against political opponents. Illegally threatening all his perceived enemies and trying to steal power that the president never had to begin with and obstructing justice by defying court orders only works for so long and the delusional bubbles in Trump’s alternate reality will inevitably pop come back to haunt him – especially when the tables are turned against him once he’s out of office. Impeaching the Attorney General for a growing list of well documented crimes he has committed for the most corrupt presidential administration in U.S. history is one way to start reigning Trump in and holding him accountable.

Donald Trump is and always has been nothing but a fraudulent con man – Trump U, multiple casino and real estate bankruptcies, multiple rapes and sexual assaults, hanging out and partying with known pedophiles, steaks and his multitude of other criminal endeavors – whose greatest gift is showmanship, bull shitting and endless lying (which only works on those that are gullible or stupid enough to believe everything he tells them since they’re incapable of independent thought) that should have been in prison decades ago. Trump’s delusions have been on full display since day one but have been part of his psyche his entire life. They’ve only worsened since ‘winning’ the White House and now the country, especially the massive majority that doesn’t support him, are paying the price in so many ways.

Buffoonery, bloviated bull shit, endless pathological lies, conspiracy theories, racism, misogyny, grandiose embellishments and delusional narcissism, among a myriad of other things, have plagued Trump his entire life and led to growing division in this country due to his constantly encouraging domestic terrorism while praising right-wing Nationalists and other terrorist groups (think Boogaloo Boys, Proud Boys and others he lovingly refers to as ‘patriots’) paying call girls and illegally trying to cover it up and other extramarital affairs, 5 bankruptcies, collusion with foreign enemies, obstructing justice - he is also an unindicted co-conspirator - money laundering, profound fraud on so many levels and other crimes and malevolent misadventures that have resulted in revealing he is nothing but a career criminal who has failed at everything he has done and the massive majority is waking up to those facts.

Today’s misadventures of our forever Impeached malignant minority-elect president* begins with a look at how he has exacerbated nearly every issue plaguing this country exponentially with his endless profound corruption and stupidity despite his lies of ‘making America great again,’ ignoring real threats while fearmongering over non-existent threats isn’t working well for Donald and his upcoming legal issues are growing, despite kissing their fraudulent evangelical asses, Donald loves bad mouthing the religious morons that support him in private, karma comes calling as Trump has contracted the Coronavirus and much more.

The US Is a Failed State article from The Nation.

Despite his dubious lies about ‘making America great again,’ Trump has done quite the opposite while exacerbating nearly every issue plaguing this country exponentially, due in large part to his endless profound corruption and stupidity.

A look at how our pathetic president* is desperately doing everything to interfere with the upcoming election so he can avoid jail time once he’s overwhelmingly voted out of office by the massive majority that doesn’t support his profoundly corrupt and ignorant ass.

A Complete Analysis Of Trump’s 190th Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt.

A look at how Donald tries to get his moronic minions to forget about the real threat while fearmongering about threats that don’t exist, and how his weeks just keep getting worse and worse:

“This week, we received concrete confirmation that Trump knew, Trump lied, and as a result, over 190,000 Americans have died. Trump’s own public actions were bad enough, and we already had reporting indicating he was briefed on the threat, but now we have his own words confirming that Trump knew exactly how deadly coronavirus was while he publicly downplayed it and refused to take action.

The Woodward tapes confirming Trump lied about coronavirus, the DHS whistleblower alleging Trump appointees sought to manipulate intel to help Trump, and the Politico report alleging Trump appointees sought to distort CDC reports are part of the same story: The Trump Administration’s corrupt suppression of info about threats to American lives for political gain. Let’s start with the Woodward tapes.

President Trump sat for 18 interviews with Bob Woodward as he was working on his book “Rage.” On Wednesday, we got our first glimpse of the content in those interviews, and provided one of the most damning revelations, if not the most, of the entire Trump presidency.

In an audio recording on February 7, President Trump told Woodward that coronavirus was airborne and 5 times more deadly than the flu. In the weeks that followed, President Trump would go on to compare coronavirus to the flu, hold indoor rallies, not take any action to ramp up testing, and downplay the threat publicly. At one of those rallies on February 28, President Trump told the crowd when referring to fears of coronavirus: “This [Coronavirus fears] is their [Democrats] new hoax.”…”

“Everything is a show with Donald Trump.

He was never really a successful businessman — he just played one on TV. Now, as president, a similar pattern has emerged: Trump wants to perform the role of autocrat in front of TV cameras, but cannot or will not act effectively to protect the country from the economic and health challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. He’s a Potemkin strongman.

The latest example of this phenomenon came over the weekend. With the House and Senate hamstrung on a pandemic relief bill, President Trump announced he would act unilaterally — signing executive orders to extend unemployment benefits, continue a moratorium on evictions, defer payroll taxes, and pause student loan payments.

“I’m taking executive action,” he said. “We’ve had it. And we’re going to save American jobs and provide relief to the American workers.”…”

Trump is the Treasonous gift that keeps on giving and the more desperate, corrupt and idiotic he becomes, the deeper he digs the hole he’ll never slither out of:

“President Donald Trump has already been impeached once, and it didn’t even include the ten examples of obstruction of justice during special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. But in just the past month, Washington Post editorial page editor Fred Hiatt outlined many, many more.

Writing Sunday, Hiatt walked through the Articles in the Constitution that Trump has violated in the past four weeks. He noted that in June, Trump decided that his ability to win in November depended on reopening the economy, even if it put Americans’ lives at risk. Meanwhile, the White House, Fox News and elected Republicans in the House and Senate waged a “bizarre campaign to discredit the nation’s top infectious-disease doctor, Anthony S. Fauci.” Even if Trump is demanding businesses all reopen, Trump has belittled testing, saying that it is the reason COVID-19 cases are so high.

“My month-old Article 2, abuse of law-enforcement powers, will have to be retopped, because the offenses I included a month ago pale beside the recent, reckless deployment of federal forces into U.S. cities for political purposes,” wrote Hiatt.

He cited Post reporter Ruth Marcus, who explained Trump’s actions attacking Portland, Oregon is “unconstitutional.” Sending federal agents in dressed as military members to throw protesters into unmarked vans so that Trump can get campaign footage is one charge…”

Trump Declares War On America, Invades Portland To Look Strong For Re-Election article from Crooks and Liars.
