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 a look back at the latest disastrous week of his corrupt, illegitimate presidency, Trump’s lies are growing exponentially and will only worsen as impeachment swallows what is left of his already failed presidency, the irony of Donnie looking for corruption – especially when all he has to do is look in the mirror and all around him, Trump committed fraud when he lied about the ‘National Emergency’ to take money from the Pentagon to build his delusional border wall, the Donald is and always has been nothing but a major fraud and it’s about to catch up to him, Donnie keeps taking his stupidity and depravity to new lows – which many thought was impossible yet he keeps surprising us and so much more.

A Complete Analysis Of Trump’s 142nd Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt.

A look back at the latest disastrous week of the most corrupt, illegitimate president* in U.S. history.

Fake President Shoots Media Members In Graphic Video Show At Pro-Trump Event: Report article from The Huffington Post.

Inciting violence on behalf of our fake president* with total impunity means it’s okay for someone to make a fake video of Trump and his equally corrupt enablers getting shot with total impunity:

Trump’s End Days article from Counter Punch.

History will not judge Trump’s failed Kakistocracy as the most corrupt, illegitimate administration in U.S. history kindly and it’s not going to end well for him or his enablers.

The first arrests of Donald Trump’s impeachment crisis article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.

The Donald is going down and it’s not going to be pretty, but the process is already in motion and it’s not looking good for him:

“At first blush, the charges against Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, two highly controversial associates of Rudy Giuliani, might make yesterday’s developments look like a campaign-finance scandal. And to a certain extent, that’s a key piece of the puzzle: the Florida businessmen stand accused of funneling very large amounts of illegal campaign contributions to various Republican politicians and political entities, including a leading super PAC allied with Donald Trump.

What’s more, according to prosecutors – who took Parnas and Fruman into custody shortly before they were prepared to take a one-way flight out of the country – the two cooked up a variety of schemes to make illegal donations to Republicans.

But this isn’t just a campaign-finance controversy, and it’s important to appreciate what else these guys were up to.

[Parnas and Fruman] were helping President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani set up meetings with high level Ukrainian officials, according to documents obtained by the State Department inspector general. Giuliani has acknowledged that he lobbied those people to investigate the Bidens and the 2016 campaign, in what Democrats say was an effort to uncover dirt on the president’s political enemies…”

President Trump has made 13,435 false or misleading claims over 993 days article from The Washington Post.

The lies from Trump keep coming fast and furious and are only going to grow exponentially as impeachment swallows what is left of his already failed presidency.

Drama queen 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:

Trump’s Treason begins today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* as connections are made between Russia helping him get ‘elected’ and the Treason he committed – more than once – with Ukraine and China in asking them to interfere is going to come back and haunt him, Donnie is not above the law – regardless of his delusions – and now his tax returns are in danger of becoming public which will further implode his already failed presidency, desperately labeling his enemies as treasonous would be comical were it not for the fact that Trump is the most treasonous of them all and he has no idea of what the definition of Treason is, the GOP controlled Senate just confirmed Donnie’s worst fear – Russia did help him ‘win’ the election, meaning that he is indeed an illegitimate president*, the threat of impeachment is taking its toll on the Donald as his meltdowns keep coming faster and more furious, why it’s time to remove all the pieces of shit Donnie has appointed to the courts and much more.

DONALD TRUMP’S UKRAINE SCANDAL HAS ITS ROOTS IN RUSSIA article from The New Yorker.

The amount of foreign help Trump had getting ‘elected’ coupled with the Treason he has committed asking Ukraine and China to interfere is going to come back and bite him bigly.

Trump Won’t Stop His Abuses of Power article from Bloomberg News.

Trump keeps committing crimes in plain sight and Congress cannot accept that and it’s going to cost him big time.

‘Trump is scared to death’: Legal experts weigh in on federal judge dismissing president’s lawauit against Manhattan DA article from Alternet.

It’s easy to forget all the rest of Trump’s corruption with the Ukraine scandal swallowing his failed presidency whole, but his highness just found out that he can’t hide his tax returns – which is going to open a whole new can of worms into the investigation into his corruption:

Trump Is Calling Literally Everything Treason Now article from Splinter News.

The irony of the most Treasonous president* in U.S. history trying to claim his enemies are treasonous would be hysterical were it not for the fact that he has no idea what the definition of Treason is:

“No one, except for the scientists who hopefully get to study his cottage cheese brain, can really say with any certainty what’s going on in Donald Trump’s head. So all we can really go off is what actually comes out of his mouth or his fingers, and based on that, I can only guess that he likes the way “treason” rolls off the tongue and so he’s hellbent on using it against essentially everyone who’s ever wronged him.

That isn’t the definition of treason, of course, but so far Trump has used it to describe the Ukraine whistleblower, then House Intelligence committee chairman, and now, in a late Sunday tweet, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi:

The worst punishment for being convicted of treason, of course, isn’t just being “impeached,” but rather being killed by the state. Trump knows this. So the fact that he’s now using it to describe Nancy Pelosi, who had to be dragged to an impeachment inquiry kicking and screaming, is an indicator that it’s just a thing he thinks all of his political opponents are doing whenever they try to hold him accountable for his actions. (In 2018, Trump also floated it as a descriptor for Democrats who didn’t stand or clap for him during the State of the Union, which is, you know, fascist.)…”

Trump’s erratic foreign policy reduced to ‘a shambles’ article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.

We’re witnessing what happens to foreign policy when an illegitimate, reckless amateur president* who lives in the land of delusion acts on his own impulse.

Nothing more patriotic 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:

A look back at one of his most corrupt weeks begins today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* as highlights of his never-ending corruption continue taking center stage and imploding his already illegitimate, failed presidency, Trump is desperately committing Treason to avoid jail time to keep his corrupt ass in office and asking other foreign countries to help him, Trump is being impeached because it’s time to impeach him to halt his endless corruption and he has cemented his place in history as the most corrupt, idiotic president* to ever occupy the White House, calls for Donnie’s impeachment are growing as more evidence of his high crimes and misdemeanors comes to light, the Donald deserves impeachment many times over, Trump should be impeached for his war crimes too, the more Trump desperately threatens the more crimes he commits and so much more.

A Complete Analysis Of Trump’s 139th Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt.

The complete corruption of our illegitimate president* continues swallowing his already failed presidency and opening doors for his imminent implosion.

‘The dam could break’ on impeachment this week article from NBC News.

Donnie is delusional enough to believe he’s above the law, when in reality he isn’t, and his latest potential act of Treason with Ukraine could be the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back and take his corrupt ass down once and for all.

Trump’s Got Big Dictator Energy Today article from Splinter News.

Allowing his Treasonous actions to go on with total impunity is giving our corrupt, idiotic wannabe dictator a false sense of security and it’s going to end up bursting his alternative bubble in his land of delusion bigly eventually:

Donald Trump Is Asking A Foreign Country To Help Him Win. Again. article from The Huffington Post.

Not that we needed more proof that Trump is an illegitimate president*, but once again he’s showing that he knows he can’t win fairly and he’s willing to commit Treason to avoid prison time once he’s voted out of office by the majority that didn’t ‘elect’ him:

“President Donald Trump had gotten off scot-free. ”A great day for me,” he declared on July 24. Former special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony about Trump’s alleged obstruction of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election had failed to convince House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ― let alone congressional Republicans ― to impeach him.

With not one member of his circle in prison for attempting to collude with a foreign power, and with the prospect of impeachment rapidly fading thanks to Pelosi’s hand-wringing and stonewalling, Trump did what any rational leader would do: He apparently did it again.

The day after Mueller’s testimony, Trump called Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and pressured Zelensky to help him win the 2020 election by investigating former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday. In the weeks that followed, Trump refused to grant Zelensky a meeting at the White House and halted $250 million of congressionally authorized military aid to the country, raising the possibility that the president was, as The Washington Post put it in an unsigned editorial, “not just soliciting Ukraine’s help with his presidential campaign” but using U.S. military aid to “extort it.”

“That allegation, if true, would unambiguously constitute an impeachable offense,” national security expert Benjamin Wittes wrote Friday. “That would be a very big deal indeed.”…”

Facing scandal, Trump admits more than he should have (again) article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.

Donald will go down in history and the most corrupt and idiotic president* to ever illegitimately occupy the White House…

So crooked 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 yet again making a fool of himself during his latest overseas foray into stupid land, Donald’s weeks keep getting worse as his endless corruption and ignorance continue working overtime, the list of crimes committed by our wannabe dictator is growing exponentially and could come back and bite his ignorant ass bigly, how Donnie’s delusions of being a despot capable of getting away with anything he wants are going to come crashing down around him and burying his delusional ass and much more.

Getting free media time isn’t enough for the fraudulent con artist that claims to be a president, so Trump bilked U.S. taxpayers out of more money to turn his self-aggrandizing ‘salute to America’ into a campaign ad – since his hijacking a National Holiday failed miserably:

“Trump’s 4th of July party was about squeezing more money out of his DC hotel and getting the taxpayers to pay for a new campaign ad.

Trump’s “Salute To America” Was Really A Campaign Ad

Trump is not a nationalist article from The Week. –
https://theweek.com/articles/846953/trump-not-nationalist

Trump’s ‘America First’ mantra is nothing but a lie – all he cares about his himself regardless of the bull shit he feeds the moronic miscreants that support him:

“At a Houston rally last year, President Trump made a proclamation: “You know what I am?” he asked. “I’m a nationalist. Okay? I’m a nationalist.”

But Trump, we know by now, is a prolific liar, and even this statement has been proven to be a falsehood. Sure, he’s for strong borders, strong exports, and bringing American manufacturing home from overseas. But on Wednesday, Trump told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos he is fine with other countries — Russia or China in particular — jumping into the 2020 race on his behalf. Oh, he might call the FBI this time. But he would still take advantage of the situation.

“I think you might want to listen, there isn’t anything wrong with listening,” Trump told ABC News. “If somebody called from a country, Norway, [and said] ‘we have information on your opponent’ — oh, I think I’d want to hear it.”

Biggest embarrassment 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 the investigation into his crimes taking center stage as Mueller made it clear that it’s up to Congress to investigate and that there is ample evidence of his many crimes, gaslighting America with false claims of innocence is backfiring bigly for the Don, whose second UK trip turned into a bigger failure than his first one, Trump’s legal woes are growing and he’s totally screwed once he leaves the White House – hopefully after the 2020 elections if he’s not impeached first, Donnie keeps using his Mein Kempf playbook to attack the press in dictatorial fashion but he’s too stupid to pull it off successfully, Donald is a legend in his own delusional mind and much more.

Look carefully at Mueller’s choice of words today and you can tell what’s going to happen to Trump next article from The Independent. –
https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/mueller-statement-today-trump-impeachment-press-conference-resignation-a8935846.html

Mueller made it blatantly clear that removing Trump from office is up to Congress and the evidence of his crimes is there if they decide to pursue it.

Robert Mueller Just Told Congress to Do Its Damn Job article from The Nation. –
https://www.thenation.com/article/robert-mueller-congress-impeachment/

Mueller also made it blatantly clear that the only reason he didn’t indict the Donald is because Justice Department policy wouldn’t allow him to do so and Congress needs to start holding impeachment proceedings and investigate like it’s supposed to.

The majority has known since Donnie was ‘elected’ by a minority of moronic minions that he is indeed illegitimate, and now he’s admitting it too – despite his lies about no obstruction – by tweeting about (and then deleting) how they helped him win:

Trump Admits Russia Helped Him ‘Get Elected’ article from Mother Jones. –
https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2019/05/trump-admits-russian-involvement/

Despite his bodacious lies about a ‘Witch Hunt,’ ‘No Collusion,’ and ‘No Obstruction,’ Trump finally admitted the Russia helped him ‘win’ the election:

“In a Thursday morning tweet, President Donald Trump publicly acknowledged for the first time that Russia helped him “get elected” in the 2016 presidential election, a stunning admission that came while he continued to insist special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation was a “Witch Hunt Hoax.”

The tweets, which were quickly deleted and then republished to fix a typo, follow a surprise press conference given on Wednesday by Robert Mueller in which the special counsel said that his office could neither clear the president of obstruction justice, nor, due to a longstanding Justice Department policy protecting the president from indictment, formally charge him.

“If we had had confidence the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” Mueller told reporters in his first public remarks in more than two years.

Moments after Mueller’s news conference, Trump took to Twitter to continue to claim innocence and declare that the “case is closed” in the Russia probe. His subsequent tweets, however, appear to contradict that very sentiment…”

How to spot a Dictator 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:

False claims of exoneration and vindication begins today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* as Robert Mueller has filed his Russia investigation report with our biased and compromised Attorney General who proceeded to white wash it and cover it up while refusing to release the actual report, regardless of the fact that it spawned a multitude of other investigations into our unindicted co-conspirator and his equally corrupt family, yet more on why it’s impossible to give Barr’s butt kissing exoneration of Trump’s obvious guilt any credibility and why it’s time for Congress to get Mueller to testify, if the Mueller report actually exonerated the Donald it would have already been released, Donnie’s despotic delusions of grandeur are going to fail and so much more.

A Complete Analysis Of Trump’s 112th Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt. –
https://rantt.com/a-complete-analysis-of-trumps-112th-unpresidented-week-as-potus/

Each passing week brings more Trumpian entertainment, distractions, criminal investigations and more despite his growing desperation to save his house of cards while it continues crashing down around him:

“Weeks like this test the resilience of humanity. 50 lives taken at the hands of a white supremacist terrorist in New Zealand. Radicalized by right-wing extremism and driven by a deep-seated Islamophobia, this radical right-wing terrorist unleashed depravity on two mosques and live streamed it on Facebook.

In this dark moment, the world was looking for a leader, and we got one in New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, whose words and displays of empathy brought communities in New Zealand together. New Zealand’s Attorney General has already announced they would ban semi-automatic weapons. In America on the other hand, no matter how many white supremacist terrorist attacks or mass shooting incidents occur, our Republican leaders refuse to act.

After the terrorist attack, President Trump was asked if he sees white nationalism as a growing global threat. In spite of all of the evidence indicating otherwise, President Trump says he does not see it as a threat. After one tweet offering condolences, President Trump embarked on a weekend tweeting spree attacking everything from the Special Counsel to deceased Republican Senator John McCain. President Trump proposed that the FEC or FCC look into Saturday Night Live and Late Night Shows and, without evidence, accused them of colluding with Democrats and Russia (which he is accused of doing). President Trump went on to demand that Fox News bring Judge Jeanine Pirro’s show back on the air after her Islamophobic comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar.

President Trump, the GOP, and Fox News’ dangerous, xenophobic fear-mongering is having deadly consequences. Right-wing terrorists are being radicalized by the rhetoric coming out of the Oval Office and the president couldn’t care less. President Trump is incapable of rising to the occasion. Even when it would suit him to be silent, he can’t help but continue his divide and conquer strategy. Donald Trump is unfit for the office of the presidency and continues to tell us why week after week. Trump has shown us who he is and ultimately, what the Republican Party has become. Some still don’t believe him, or even worse, they do and support him nonetheless…”

The pressure from his unraveling corruption scandals is getting to the Don and he’s not handling it well, as made evident from the 52 delusional tweets this past weekend, including the one below:

After New Zealand slayings, Trump flunks another leadership test article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/after-new-zealand-slayings-trump-flunks-another-leadership-test

Trump flunks every leadership test because he’s not a leader and he never will be – he’s a fraudulent grifter that lost the majority vote yet still became president*:

“As a rule, it’s difficult for an American president to screw up a response to a foreign terrorist attack, especially in an allied nation. The script, which several U.S. leaders have followed without incident, reflects common sense: a president condemns the violence, extends sympathy to the grieving, and offers American support.

Presidents face all kinds of arcane challenges. This isn’t one of them. It’s a pass/fail test – which is tough to fail.

And yet, Donald Trump keeps managing to find a way.

It was, after all, Friday afternoon when the Republican president held a White House photo-op in order to veto a measure that would block his emergency declaration over border barriers. At the event, Trump extended his condolences to New Zealand – though he made no specific reference to Muslims or the Islamic community – before quickly transitioning to the core argument he was eager to emphasize. In reference to the U.S./Mexico border, the American insisted:…”

What did the president know and when did he know it? Trump knew it all, from the beginning article from Salon. –
https://www.salon.com/2019/03/08/what-did-the-president-know-and-when-did-he-know-it-trump-knew-it-all-from-the-beginning/

The Don’s history of lying about his endless corruption has been blatantly obvious to anyone paying attention:

“Every week seems to bring another Trump scandal. There are so many now we’re going to have to start numbering them. Up until now the sheer volume of alleged misdeeds and malfeasance has actually worked in the president’s favor. There is so much out there that it’s hard to keep the whole picture straight in your mind and that has the weird effect of making things seem less serious than they actually are.

We know that the Trump base and the vast majority of Republican voters still support the president and think it’s all nothing but a witch hunt. They are mesmerized by the president and propagandized by Fox News and other right-wing media. But I would imagine that even people who don’t like Trump but don’t follow all this closely or in much detail wonder whether maybe the whole thing is just a collection of complaints that don’t really add up to anything.

That’s why it’s meaningful when the likes of Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen of Axios, journalists whom the political establishment sees as avatars of acceptable mainstream thinking, decide that it’s time to take stock of how many scandals are now being investigated and how wide the scope of the alleged criminality and corruption has become. It’s rather sobering. On Thursday they wrote out a partial list, entitling it, “The biggest political scandal in American history.”

VandeHei and Allen report that historians tell them there are only two previous scandals that even come close to what we are dealing with now: One is Watergate, and even Americans who weren’t alive at the time have heard plenty about that one. The other would be Teapot Dome, a bribery scandal under the manifestly corrupt Warren G. Harding administration in the 1920s…”

“I want everyone in this room to think about this, the first announced witness for the 116th Congress is a guy who is going to prison in two months for lying to Congress,” Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said in his opening remarks.

But as more Republicans on the committee followed Jordan’s lead, that strategy quickly hit a wall.

“You’re a pathological liar. You don’t know truth from falsehood,” Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz, scolded Cohen, who then swiftly turned the tables on his interrogators…”
