Misadventures of a minority-elect President 325

Mentally ill Trump from Pinterest

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…”

Constant whine Trump from Pinterest

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:

A look back at his most recent disastrous week begins today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* as more of his profound corruption and stupidity takes center stage, coronavirus is going to hasten the end of his already failed presidency, Trump is flailing miserably as his record Stock Market loss hits hard, Donnie is beginning to emulate Howard Hughes as his tiny little delusional brain starts making him even more paranoid, a look at the trailer for ‘Pandumbic’ starring the idiot in the White House and his reaction to the coronavirus outbreak, if you thought Trump couldn’t possibly get any more stupid responding to the coronavirus outbreak you would be sadly mistaken, how America has finally woken up to the fact that there is nothing but a corrupt con man sitting in the Oval Office – who has cratered his own failed presidency, in his usual ignorant fashion Trump tries – and fails – to absolve himself of any responsibility and so much more.

A Complete Analysis Of Trump’s 163rd Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt.

The latest disastrous week of Trump’s failed presidency highlights more of his profound corruption and ignorance.

Trump’s Second Term? Not Worth Freaking Out About. article from Counter Punch.

A look at why little, if any, more damage would be done should Donnie actually ‘win’ a second term since he’s been so ineffective during his first term – aside from establishing himself as the most corrupt and ignorant president* to ever occupy the White House.

Trump’s denialist tweets are the coronavirus reaction we feared article from Vox News.

In his usual delusional alternative reality where stupid is as stupid does, Donnie once again tries downplaying the coronavirus outbreak with moronic tweets that – as usual – reveal the depths of his ineptitude:

The emperor has no clue: Trump seems to believe coronavirus will just go away article from Salon.

Believing the outbreak will disappear and praising himself for doing a good job – despite the obvious fact that he’s not – while spreading misinformation because he’s that uninformed and stupid isn’t boding well for the Donald:

“A compelling and coherent narrative is finally emerging to explain the Trump administration’s flailing response to the coronavirus crisis.

It’s consistent with what we know about President Trump’s pathological need for admiration, and with what we know about the culture of sycophancy and fear he has created among the people who answer to him.

And it should become an explicit element of every incremental story about the crisis going forward.

In short: Trump bet on containment rather than mobilization. It was a bad bet. But in Trump’s mind, it was a “tremendous success.” As a result, top health officials fearful of his wrath assured him it was working, rather than preparing for its inevitable failure. Now Trump is fully invested in making coronavirus appear to disappear, even as it continues to spread. But the only way to do that is to slow-walk testing, put a chokehold on the release of information, repeatedly insist that everyone says he’s doing a good job and hope for a miracle.

Who the Hell Wants Another Four Years of This? article from Esquire.

Trying to Tweet away a health crisis while blaming everyone but himself for his massive failures is really making Trump look even more stupid than he usually does…

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 his flagrant abuses of power since he is repeatedly and routinely breaking the law in plain sight, because Trump and the miscreants in his administration do nothing but lie he has zero credibility, the lies and deceptions perpetrated by Trump are about to hurt him bigly, the many criminal actions of Trump and his equally corrupt and moronic administration and family have grown exponentially, Donnie’s ignorance is always on display but the coronavirus outbreak revealed his lower depths of stupidity, once again Donnie tries to blame his predecessor – this time for his incompetent, ignorant response it – while failing miserably, the multitude of ways Trump bungled his coronavirus response – and his lies about it that never stop and much more.

Maddow: Time for warnings is past as Trump openly abuses power video from MSNBC.

How Trump is breaking the law – repeatedly and routinely – in plain sight for the world to see, which will come back and bite him eventually.

Jim Acosta Wallops Trump Over Record Of Truth-telling article from Crooks and Liars.

Being the fabulist that he is – reveling in his never-ending non-existent embellishments – the Donald has a major aversion to telling the truth and is completely incapable of actually handling it:

Trump’s flailing incompetence makes coronavirus even scarier article from Vox News. –

How corrupting the government and knowing absolutely nothing about the coronavirus could end up hurting Donnie’s endeavors to get himself re-elected.

We hired 2 comic creators from the world of DC and Marvel to tell the full story of why Trump was impeached, and what he got away with article from The Business Insider.

Our forever Impeached, impotent president’s* Ukraine Treason will be forever immortalized in comics, and it’s well worth a look:

“In November, President Donald Trump became the third president in the history of the United States to be impeached.

The story of why that happened and what he was accused of spans oceans, features an enormous cast, and runs the course of his entire presidency.

To help the American people understand precisely what happened, Insider hired Anthony Del Col and Josh Adams — two accomplished comics creators — to tell this story.

All of what’s contained in here are illustrations of real events. The original reporting is outlined beneath the comic…”

Born ignorant remain stupid Trump from Pinterest

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:

His conspiracy theories, lies and propaganda designed to help him stay in the White House begins today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* as he stoops to all kinds of games and idiocy to try and keep his ass out of prison once he’s out of office, corrupting the ‘Justice’ Department is going to come back and bite the Don’s ignorant ass bigly once he’s out of the the White House, Trump admits that he did indeed commit Treason after his fake ‘acquittal’ by his equally corrupt enablers in the U.S. Senate, in Donnie’s delusional brain he is the top law enforcement official in America, how the Donald keeps committing Treason in plain sight with total impunity – for now and so much more.

Trump’s New Hampshire rally showed how he’s already sowing discord about the 2020 election article from Vox News.

The games Trump is willing to play and his desperation to stay out of prison once he gets voted out of the White House are going to make this year’s presidential election a doozy as his conspiracy theories, lies and propaganda take center stage:

Trump Brags About Traitor Barr Betraying the Country for Him article from PoliticusUSA.

Illegally subverting the rule of law and doing Trump’s dirty work isn’t going to bode well for Barr or our treasonous president* when all is said and done.

Donald Trump’s fascist Circus Maximus: Pay attention to what’s going on below the surface article from Salon.

Deflecting from his criminal actions and destructive policies with public distractions has led to a lot of damage being done to this country – and it’s time to start paying attention to it and doing something about it.

The Don Seizes The Justice Department article from The Week.

How the Don corrupted the ‘Justice’ Department and politicized it to use against his foes – not being smart enough to realize that in the future when he’s gone, it can be used against him as well:

“The closer you get to President Trump, the closer you get to prison.

Roger Stone, the president’s longtime friend and former campaign adviser, is living proof. On Monday, the Department of Justice recommended that he be sentenced to seven to nine years in prison for crimes he committed relating to Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election. That night, at 1:48 a.m., our law-and-order president tweeted, “This is a horrible and very unfair situation. The real crimes were on the other side, as nothing happens to them. Cannot allow this miscarriage of justice!”

The next day, in a total coincidence, the Department of Justice changed its mind and said that Stone deserved “far less” than the previously recommended sentence, prompting four prosecutors to withdraw from the case and one to resign in protest. Hours later, Trump tweeted, “All starting to unravel with the ridiculous nine year sentence recommendation!” If there’s one thing we know that Trump hates, it’s long sentences.

On Twitter and to reporters, Trump berated the prosecutors, a juror, and the judge presiding over Stone’s case. More ominously, he said he has the “absolute right” to tell the Justice Department what to do, but claimed he “didn’t speak” to anyone there about Stone. He didn’t have to speak. He tweeted instead…”

Trump Admits He’s Guilty Of The Impeachment Charges Now That He’s Been Fake Acquitted article from PoliticusUSA.

After the sham ‘acquittal’ by the corrupt U.S. Senate, Trump admits that he did indeed commit Treason – and is bragging about it – which will eventually come back to bite his ignorant ass.

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.

The Disintegration of the American Presidency article from The Atlantic.

The destruction done to this country by the most corrupt and ignorant president* in U.S. history – enabled by an equally corrupt and ignorant Republican Party – is going to haunt this country for years to come.

Trump’s attorneys argue that impeachment itself is no longer legal in superpower America article from The Daily Kos.

Arguing that Trump is above the law and it’s illegal to impeach him regardless of his profound corruption isn’t going to sit too well with the majority that didn’t elect his ignorant ass.

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.

Sociopaths Trump 2 from Pinterest

Chronicling the misadventures of our minority-elect President’s alternate reality, alternative facts and the miscreants that comprise his administration so you don’t have to:

Having no credibility whatsoever due to his endless lies begins today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* as his lies used to justify his war crime in Iraq offer yet more evidence that he needs to be removed from office and he is a major threat to our National Security, Donnie has dug himself another hole that he’ll never be able to slither out due to his corrupt ignorance, how the Don tries to avoid responsibility for his criminal stupidity by conjuring up illusions in his delusional little mind, Trump can’t believe his latest war crime didn’t make everyone love him, still behaving like a guilty man – which is quite revealing, the lies – and the crimes – from the Don keep coming as his desperation to keep his ignorant ass out of prison continues growing, having his illegitimate presidency tainted by impeachment is weighing heavily on the Donald and he’s not handling it well, Trump and all his enablers – Pence, Barr, Pompeo etc. – are all implicated in his crimes and much more.

Serial liar Trump doesn’t get the benefit of the doubt on leading us into war article from Alternet.

All Trump ever does is lie, and his lies used for justifying his war crime aren’t going to bode well for him – and he has absolutely no credibility whatsoever about anything because of his endless lies.

Emails point to ‘clear direction’ from Trump in Ukraine scheme article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.

Newly revealed emails show that Donnie is guilty as hell of what he’s been charged with – and it appears that he attacked Iran to try and deflect from the imminent implosion of his corrupt, failed presidency.

Trump believes he has ‘no choice’ but to launch a ‘massive retaliation’ for Iran strikes: CNN’s Jim Acosta article from The Raw Story.

Trump’s ignorance in killing Iran’s top Military leader – and committing yet more war crimes – and thinking they wouldn’t retaliate reveals just how profoundly ignorant he is:

Trump officials are bending over backward to say he didn’t threaten to commit a war crime after he repeatedly threatened to commit a war crime article from Business Insider.

The lies coming from the White House – whose administration officials are just as profoundly ignorant and corrupt as their leader – trying to cover up Trump’s threats to commit more war crimes are quite entertaining:

“President Donald Trump announced on Twitter over the weekend that if Iran retaliated against the US for assassinating its top military general, Qassem Soleimani, the US would respond by attacking 52 Iranian sites, including cultural ones, “VERY FAST AND VERY HARD.”

After initially backing down from his comments following swift backlash and allegations that he was advocating a war crime, Trump doubled down while talking to reporters on Air Force One.

“They’re allowed to kill our people. They’re allowed to torture and maim our people. They’re allowed to use roadside bombs and blow up our people,” he said. “And we’re not allowed to touch their cultural site? It doesn’t work that way.”

Targeting cultural sites with no military value violates international law and multiple treaties…”

It would only take 20 Republican senators with a conscience to end this article from Alternet.

As our demented toddler in the White House continues imploding and digging himself a deeper hole he’ll never be able to slither out of, it’s going to be interesting to see if the GOP enablers in the Senate actually grow a spine or continue letting him destroy everything they are.

A look back at the most recent disastrous week of Trump’s failed presidency as impeachment inches closer to tarnish his corrupt, lackluster legacy.

The two-faced double standards by Donald are quite astounding:

More on Donnie’s history making impeachment as he finally won something with the most votes:

“Trump shattered the previous record of 228 votes for impeachment as he piled up the most votes in history in favor of a presidential impeachment.

Chronicling the misadventures of our minority-elect President’s alternate reality, alternative facts and the miscreants that comprise his administration so you don’t have to:

A look back at the most recent failed week of his presidency begins today’s adventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* as his problems keep growing and the weeks keep getting worse, how the havoc unleashed by the Donald in his first 3 years in office will cement his place in history as the most corrupt and ignorant president* ever ‘elected,’ the truth about Trump’s failed presidency reads like a Stephen King horror novel come to life, for someone who claims he’s making America great again, Trump’s actions speak louder than his ignorant words, yet again the Don has proved himself to be a national embarrassment during his most recent overseas trip, Donnie’s plot to ‘investigate the investigators’ is going up in a puff of smoke – for obvious reasons, Trump is screwing over the minority of moronic minions that were stupid enough to vote for him and so much more.

A Complete Analysis Of Trump’s 149th Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt.

A look back at the most recent failed week of Trump’s presidency as they keep getting worse and worse for him.

Trump caught blatantly lying about Ukrainian president ‘exonerating’ him in new interview article from The Raw Story.

Given that Donnie does nothing but lie, it’s not surprising that he’s lying about being exonerated, when in fact he’s far from it:

What Trump has actually done in his first 3 years article from Vox News.

The Donald’s legacy won’t be a good one, and while everyone focuses on his endless scandals and criminal acts, Donald has been busy destroying everything this country has ever stood for and he’ll go down in history as the most corrupt, ignorant president* to ever be ‘elected’ despite losing the popular vote by almost 3 million.

Half of America wants Trump removed from office. Why does the press keep shrugging that off? article from The Daily Kos.

It’s telling that over half this country – the majority that didn’t vote for him – wants the Don impeached:

“With the House Judiciary Committee poised to take up the impeachment baton and hold a new round of public hearings this month, the Beltway press continues to absorb and echo Republican talking points that claim the inquiry isn’t resonating with Americans. Because impeachments aren’t legal proceedings, the messaging wars that surround them take on added importance. And right now, by treating as no big deal the fact that basically half the country supports removing the president of the United States from office, the media is greatly helping Republicans spread their preferred impeachment message: The inquiry isn’t resonating.

“It’s a disappointing—if not unexpected—response for Democrats, who had hoped to use the hearings to sway public opinion,” the Associated Press recently reported, suggesting impeachment has been a political failure for Democrats because the hearings in recent weeks have not produced a tidal wave of public support. “Without that backing, it’s virtually impossible to imagine Republican senators voting to convict Trump.”

First of all, public support for impeachment could be 90% and it’s unlikely that loyalist Republican senators would vote to convict Donald Trump, so that whole premise is skewed. But also, the press’ preferred narrative about support for impeachment being stagnant just isn’t accurate.

Since Democrats announced their intention to hold impeachment hearings, public support for the inquiry has jumped 16 points, according to the tabulation at FiveThirtyEight, with public support for Trump’s removal from office increasing by 7 points. That’s solid confirmation that Americans are engaged on the issue and support the historic Democratic push to hold Trump accountable. It’s especially impressive during these polarizing times, when partisans remain so entrenched on most issues…”

Trump’s Impeachable Empirical Presidency

Trump Holding Head from PoliticusUSA

Since taking office President Donald J. Trump has made it evident that he never had any intention of upholding Democracy, following presidential protocol, keeping any of the promises he made to the minority that voted for him or obeying any laws under the delusional auspices that they don’t apply to him. The only thing he ever cared about is and always will be himself regardless of the consequences.

Getting caught in his Ukraine scandal is an impeachable offense, but truth be told, Trump has been committing impeachable offenses since being ‘elected’ despite losing the popular vote by almost 3 million, and Democrats limiting his impeachment inquiry to only Ukraine would be foolish and a waste of time. Trump has never been popular among the majority of Americans, nor will he ever be, and despite his false delusions of an empirical presidency, he is not above the law.

Impeachment is meant to be used as a last resort, oftentimes only in the most extreme cases. In Trump’s case, his endless abuses of power have surpassed any we’ve seen in the history of this country and encouraging foreign aid in helping win another election is unfathomable. After more than 3 years of subverting Democracy repeatedly and abusing his power, the time for Congress to act is long overdue.

In the case of extorting Ukraine, for which he is facing impeachment now, Trump was foolish enough to release a transcript of one of his calls which specifically calls for pressuring Ukraine into digging up dirt to use against Joe Biden, one of his potential challengers in the 2020 election. The fact that he withheld Military aid to Ukraine that was mandated by Congress makes this criminal act even worse. The fact that he confessed to committing the crime during an interview with Fox ‘News’ doesn’t help his case either.

Misadventures of a minority-elect President 317

Aunt Crabby Trump from Pinterest

Chronicling the misadventures of our 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 his going on Fox faux news – his Ministry of Propaganda outlet – and admitting that he did indeed commit an impeachable offense, White House emails reveal that there was an attempted cover up after Donnie committed Treason – meaning his claims of everything being ‘perfect’ and ‘doing nothing wrong’ are just more examples of his always lying to cover his corrupt ass, why it may be necessary to continue impeaching Donnie – since the equally treasonous GOP Senate will most likely continue trying to acquit him regardless of the fact that he’s guilty as hell of multiple crimes, why Congress needs to hold impeachment inquiries on all the crimes the Don has committed – not just Ukraine, Donald’s desperation at tossing Giuliani under the bus by claiming that he never worked in Ukraine for him – a flat out lie – is quite revealing and so much more.

Trump Self Destructs On Fox And Admits Impeachable Offenses article from PoliticusUSA.

Donnie just doesn’t know when to shut up and the more he speaks and tweets, the deeper the hole he digs himself – and it’s going to come back to haunt him:

Trump just gave away the game on his bribery scheme in a live interview to baffled Fox News hosts article from The Raw Story.

More on the Donald admitting his guilt to his Ministry of Propaganda with his delusional phone in to Fox faux news while digging himself a hole that he’ll never be able to slither out of:

Congress Has No Other Option Than to Impeach and Remove the President From Office article from Common Dreams.

There is no doubt that the Don has committed a myriad of impeachable crimes, now it just remains to be seen whether or not the Senate will prove they’re just as guilty as he is or not.

Fiona Hill’s Testimony Was Devastating for Trump article from The Nation.

Dr. Fiona Hill provided a lot of damage to the Don and totally eviscerated any shred of doubt as to his guilt:

“Former White House adviser Fiona Hill was far and away the most impressive of the witnesses in the impeachment hearings against Donald Trump. This is a reflection more of how she presented her case than of the particular story she told. There are only minor inconsistencies among the witnesses: All the accounts confirm that Donald Trump and his inner circle used the threat of withholding foreign aid to compel the Ukrainian government to open up investigations that would implicate Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

But the witnesses varied greatly in how they carried themselves. Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman was jittery and flustered, understandably so since he was a career military man giving evidence against the commander in chief. EU ambassador Gordon Sondland had the air of a wealthy dilettante trying to fast-talk his way out of a mess. A few of the other witnesses came across as colorless functionaries.

Hill stood out from the pack. She was poised, confident, brisk in her remarks, unflustered by browbeating from Republican representatives, and in utter command of her facts and arguments. Her testimony clarified the reality that the Trump administration had a two-track Ukraine policy: an official policy executed by foreign policy professionals and a nakedly political policy sneakily pushed along by Gordon Sondland and others.

About Sondland, Hill noted, “He was being involved in a domestic political errand, and we were being involved in national security foreign policy. And those two things had just diverged.” That divergence between the “domestic political errand” and official policy cuts to the heart of the scandal…”

Trump essentially admitted on live TV to doing the thing he’s accused of in the impeachment inquiry article from Business Insider.

The endless depths of stupidity emitted by our illegitimate president* are astounding and the fact that he can’t keep his mouth shut while ranting to his Ministry of Propaganda is going to hurt him.
