Misadventures of a minority-elect President 75

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:

Pondering over whether or not we’re willing to let Trump evolve – though judging from what we’ve seen so far he should have been removed long ago, more on Trump’s disingenuous tax cut scam, Trump’s chaotic presidency as seen through all his ignorant Twitter rants, Trump’s first 100 days show that despite his best efforts, we’re not in Nazi Germany, more on Trump’s ongoing use of False Flags to justify committing war crimes, Trump’s race against the clock to actually do something relevant, Trump team resorts to theatrics because they’re too corrupt and ignorant to actually govern, more on Trump’s tax cut scam that helps him and his family and his flip flop on NAFTA, Trump still lying about job creation and jobs going overseas, every day seems to present ethical challenges for our illegitimate minority-elect President, the dubious list of Trump’s accomplishments in his first 100 days is quite revealing – as is his aversion to transparency, the education of Donald Trump, White House continues its Obama Derangement Syndrome, more on Trump’s objectively pernicious first 100 days and much more.

Despite Trump’s best efforts, we’re not in Nazi Germany:

“We’ve learned a crucial lesson in the past few months: our democracy is not as easily ‘deconstructed’ as Steve Bannon might have hoped

We have learned one crucial lesson since January 20 – we are not Germany in 1933. I shared the fear that Trump represented an existential threat to American democracy. I am not convinced those fears have been entirely allayed. But the first hundred days of the Trump presidency have demonstrated that American institutions and traditions of democratic constitutionalism are not as easily “deconstructed” as Steve Bannon might have hope.

We should be proud of the resistance shown by our civil society. Ordinary citizens have taken to the streets in record numbers; we have confronted our representatives in town-hall meetings; we have flooded members of Congress with letters and emails; we have organized ourselves into groups such as Daily Action, mobilizing the energies of millions unwilling to quietly acquiesce in the destruction of American democracy.

In one weekend, the ACLU received more online contributions than it typically receives in six years. Art supply stores are enjoying gravy days, as Americans race to purchase poster boards and magic markers, the low-tech tools of peaceful protest…”

Misadventures of a minority-elect President 74

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 Russian riddle, more people becoming aware that Trump constantly lies or exaggerates, our lackluster wannabe dictator still has lots to learn about abusing executive power and the Constitution, Trump administration trying to make our moronic Liar-in-Chief’s first 100 days look good – despite the obvious, majority of Americans disapprove of our minority-elect president’s first 100 days, what Trump has done for – and to – the environment during his delusional, inept tenure, trying to decipher the babble coming from the 4th grade mind of our leader, Trump’s twitter lie about Obama wiretapping him proves the power of fake news, the desperation to make Trump’s first 100 days look good is showing, evidence of a Trump-Russia investigation cover-up growing more evident, Trump’s tax cut scam becoming more obvious, latest version of Trumpcare is so bad Congress is quietly exempting themselves from it, National Monuments are the latest target of Trump’s attack on the environment and much more.

Fact-check: The White House’s claims about Trump’s first 100 Days article from Yahoo! News. –

Unsurprisingly, the White House is desperately trying to make our moronic Liar-in-Chief look good:

“As we approach the 100th day of Donald Trump’s presidency, the White House is attempting to thread a needle. The president himself called them a “ridiculous standard” — an opinion shared by some historians — but his administration also wants to show that it’s proud of what they’ve accomplished thus far.

The roll out of accolade documentation has been a little rocky.

A statement from the White House distributed Tuesday said that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt had only signed nine executive orders in his first 100 days in office. As history professor Peter A. Shulman pointed out on Twitter, the actual number is 99. The White House appears to have pulled the number from the American Presidency Project, which lists just some of Roosevelt’s major signings. When the mistake was pointed out to the administration, the White House said Trump still had signed the most executive orders since Roosevelt.

There was also a discrepancy between the number of executive orders credited to Harry S. Truman. Truman signed 57 executive orders in the 100 days following Roosevelt’s death in 1945, but only 25 — the number used by the White House — at the beginning of his term following the 1948 election.

The heavy reliance on executive orders instead of signing congressional legislation goes against a critique of Trump the candidate…”
