His visit to the UK was so terrible that he made Theresa May look like a good politician.

"Unpresidented" — Make America Grate Again
Latest entry on top. For sequence of events consider reading from bottom up.
In part, this is also a clinical description of narcissistic personality disorder.
His visit to the UK was so terrible that he made Theresa May look like a good politician.
No Tardis in sight, tough. Where the hell is the Doctor??
He does not know how trade works. He does not know how NATO works. He does not know how cooperation works or what it means for that matter. He does not know his ass from a hole in the ground. And of course he does not know how democracy works. Nor does he care. His idea is to run an administration like a ‘reality’ TV-show — including a suitable definition of ‘reality’: He counts on his lies becoming truths if he simply repeats them over and over again. He sucks up to Putin and Kim Jong-Un, probably having wet dreams about the way the latter deals with people who fail to show enough enthusiastic admiration, while treating his democratic ‘allies’ like enemies.
Scene: Many western industrialized societies.
Karl Kraus wrote in 1914: I fully understand that every so often marketplaces must be transformed into battlegrounds so that they can become marketplaces once again.
So Flotus visited one of the detention facilities for children at the border. CNN (among others) reports:
As the first lady boarded her plane from Andrews Air Force Base, she wore an olive green jacket. The back of the jacket read: "I really don't care. Do u?" in white graffiti-style lettering. Trump was not wearing the jacket when she landed in McAllen, Texas. She re-donned the jacket and wore it when she deplaned back at Andrews Air Force Base despite the media storm that had erupted over her initial wearing.
Indeed, there is no hidden message. The message is obvious: She is a few bricks shy of a full load which, in combination with an impressive degree of moral indifference, makes her a truly befitting spouse to her husband.
At a rally in Minnesota he said yesterday:
You ever notice that they call the other side the elite. The elite. Why are they elite? I have a much better apartment than they do. I'm smarter than they are. I'm richer than they are.
The pot calling the kettle black. The mother of all elites is anti-elitist. What he is referring to, by the way, is not an apartment. It is a psychiatric diagnosis.
Back in October 2016, Robert de Niro said this:
I mean, he’s so blatantly stupid. He’s a punk. He’s a dog. He’s a pig. He’s a con. He’s a bullshit artist. A mutt who doesn’t know what he’s talking about, doesn’t do his homework, doesn’t care, thinks he’s gaming society, doesn’t pay his taxes. He’s an idiot. Colin Powell said it best: He’s a national disaster. He’s an embarrassment to this country. It makes me so angry that this country has gotten to the point that this fool, this bozo, has wound up where he has. He talks how he wants to punch people in the face. Well, I’d like to punch him in the face. This is someone that we want for president? I don’t think so. What I care about is the direction of this country, and what I’m very, very worried about is that it might go in the wrong direction with someone like Donald Trump. If you care about your future, vote for it.
... and the Minnesota crowd cheers almost two years later, and it keeps getting worse.
More than two thousand children have been separated from their parents upon their illegal entry into the U.S. and held in detention centers. On a — verified — audio recording they are crying for their moms and dads. A Border Patrol agent is heard saying in Spanish: "Well, we have an orchestra here, right?" and "What we're missing is a conductor."
Is he trying to make a heinous cruelty more bearable to the children? Or to himself? Or is he someone like his president, like Ann Coulter who suggested the kids are actors, like Jeff Sessions and Sarah Huckabee Sanders who abused the Bible to justify it?
I have no words. No satirical spark. Only an image:
Just came across a word I had never heard: “Herstory”, meaning “History” form a feminist perspective.
OK, a few more to go: histology, histrionic, hispanic, hissy, histamine, histogram.
I’m putting this in here even if it has nothing to do with #45. The reason being: How stupid can you get? Ah, it does have something to do with him.
He broke the Iran "Deal". And threatens to impose sanctions on the EU and other nations if they uphold the treaty and continue to do business with Iran.
At the same time, he wants to negotiate denuclearization of North Korea with Kim Jong Un — and 18 Republican members of Congress have already nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize.
"Moron" is an understatement at this point.
The new ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, an Ex-Fucks-News-commentator, presented himself accordingly. Upon his arrival in Berlin, he tweeted:
As @realDonaldTrump said, US sanctions will target critical sectors of Iran’s economy. German companies doing business in Iran should wind down operations immediately.
He fired his Secretary of State via Twitter!
And he had the deputy director of the FBI — who had already stepped down in January — fired two days before his retirement.
It does take an uncommon degree of viciousness to do something like that.
Talking to the NRA — or this president — about guns is like talking to the drug cartels about drugs.
Nah, let's be serious: We could make high schools into high security schools. Armed guards at the locked double doors, metal detectors, and body searches. Teachers must complete a yearly firearms drill and carry a weapon while on duty. Let us thus honor the American values the NRA stands for.
Update: 2018-02-21: The Independent (UK):
Florida state lawmakers have rejected a bill that would ban assault rifles, less than a week after 17 people were killed in a shooting at a Florida high school.
The Florida House voted 36-71 against a motion to consider legislation to outlaw assault rifles and large capacity magazines, effectively killing the bill for the time-being [...]
Show the victims how much you care.
Yesterday #45 held a "listening session with high school students and teachers" at the White House. One student — a single one! — timidly brought up the issue that it wasn't right for a civilian like himself to be able to buy "weapons of war". He got no support whatsoever. None! Zilch! The proposed solutions involved mental institutions, fortified schools and armed teachers.
"You would no longer have a gun-free zone" said #45 [@52:25]. More guns to fight gun violence. More water to fight flooding. At this point my own idea of a solution involves mental institutions as well.
Mr. Wayne La Pierre, NRA, has a simple equation:
[Jan 20, 2018 01:51:24 PM] Beautiful weather all over our great country, a perfect day for all Women to March. Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months. Lowest female unemployment in 18 years!
[Jan 6, 2018 07:27:42 AM] ....Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart. [...] I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star.....
[Jan 2, 2018 07:49:19 PM] North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!
CNN (and many others):
On Thursday [Jan.11], in a meeting with a senators and House members on immigration, the President of the United States, asked this: "Why do we want all these people from 'shithole countries' coming here?"
One should not poke fun at older folks’ physical ailments.
#45 delivered a speech in which he slurred words and made very slight suction movements as if he was wearing loose-fitting dentures.
Unfit presidenture. He’s been lying through his fake teeth.
The Trump administration is prohibiting officials at the nation’s top public health agency [CDC] from using a list of seven words or phrases [...] in official documents being prepared for next year’s budget. [...]
"Curiouser and curiouser". Dangerouser and dangerouser.
Imagine you are trying to call a friend living abroad or in another area in the U.S., and you can’t get through. It seems strange because you never had any connection problems before. When you finally reach the person, sound quality is absolutely lousy, you can hardly understand a word. Or imagine, you're switching to your favorite TV-show on your cable and suddenly the image is choppy. When you call your cable company, they tell you that you can pay extra to get a premium connection without these problems which were, as you realize now, created intentionally. Or your telephone company simply wants to hurt a competitor in another area, so there is nothing you can do.
Unthinkable? Not so. That is exactly what is now allowable concerning your use of the internet.
Net neutrality is about equal access to the internet for everyone. Nothing may be blocked or slowed down that you would ordinarily have unhindered access to. Now the FCC shitcanned that. ISPs (Internet Service Providers) are free to do whatever they want as far as their services are concerned. Ajit Pai, head of the FCC and handpicked by #45, undid President Obama’s 2015 regulations.
Pai’s position is that the internet thrived prior to these regulations, therefore they are an obstacle to further development.
This kind of cynical lying should be made a federal offense.
These neo-con artists make me sick!
Garrison Keillor, ex-host of “A Prairie Home Companion” and my all-time favorite storyteller, has been accused of sexual misconduct. The person who came forward immediately with details about a minor incident was — Garrison Keillor himself. Minnesota Public Radio (MPR), having become famous because of Keillor, fired him on the spot: all contracts terminated, no rebroadcasts of the show, show gets a name change. The Washington Post followed suit and cancelled his weekly column. (Their motto is “Democracy Dies In Darkness”. That’s exactly what it's been doing for some time now, and in this particular instance WashPost is helping!)
Meanwhile, #45 ties firecrackers to cats’ tails like a six-year-old brat (Jerusalem, North Korea). And he, whose mental condition has been discussed openly of late, achieves — if nothing else — to make USA Today really livid:
A president who'd all but call a senator a whore is unfit to clean toilets in Obama's presidential library or to shine George W. Bush's shoes […]Strong words, the likes of which I have never read about a sitting president in a newspaper. Good words. Necessary words.
Just like the sane part of the American population, 800,000 “Dreamers” are waking up to a nightmare. It seems that this president’s main goal is to undo each and every act of his predecessor who had granted children of illegal immigrants, having arrived in the US with their parents, a renewable right to stay in the country under the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program. Most of them are as American as apple pie by now, they pay taxes and some of them serve(d) in the military, but Attorney Degenerate Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III says they are taking away American jobs.
Europe should urgently recall their scientists lest they take away American research positions.
To top it off, #45 says he loves the Dreamers and passes the buck to Congress to come up with a solution in six months, or else…
Adding to that his way of dealing with the other superjerk, Kim Jong-Un, and adding Hurricane Harvey which made the state of Texas realize that the Federal Government needs to be strong enough after all to cough up 150 billion for reconstruction of the Lone Star, I tend to believe that we have finally arrived at the one place where such events occur, as it were, naturally: the Twilight Zone.
If stupidity got us into this mess, then why can't it get us out?
A horde of neo-Nazis and white supremacists marched with torches through the campus of Charlottesville, VA. The next day, prior to a planned rally, one of their supporters ran his car into a group of counter protesters, killing one and wounding 19.
In a statement delivered out of his NYC tower, #45 found "blame on both sides", thus placing Nazis on the same moral level as their victims. By the same token he might have said that the Jews must have done something wrong to end up in Auschwitz.
The whole thing has been on the news for days on end now, and sometimes I think it's all a clever ploy by the mainstream media to keep everyone busy with something preventing #45 to continue instigating war with North Korea. Like holding a rattle up to a toddler to distract him from pulling down the table cloth with everything on it.
This president does not give a hoot about the Republican Party whose constituents voted for him. He does not seem to give a hoot about his own family (notably his Jewish son-in-law and his daughter), about right or wrong, about any kind of moral principle, or for that matter about American history — which he probably does not even understand. What he cares about only and exclusively, is himself.
So Reince Priebus and Sean Spicer resigned. And Anthony Scaramucci appeared as WH communications director. In a New Yorker interview he said on the record:
Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac. [...]
Welcome to the Untied States of America.
Jun 29, 2017 07:52:17 AM I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came..
One wonders how Melania's campaign against cyber-bullying is coming along. And whether this freakish troll thinks he is going to get the Senate votes for his health care bill by raising a shitstorm even among Republicans.
The NY Times:
President Trump announced [yesterday] that the United States would withdraw from the Paris climate accord, weakening efforts to combat global warming and embracing isolationist voices in his White House who argued that the agreement was a pernicious threat to the economy and American sovereignty.
The president shamefully abandons the fight against humanity’s greatest threat. [...] Any rational, responsible business leader, faced with an existential threat to his enterprise, would take steps to manage the risk. With his decision to leave the Paris climate accord, President Donald Trump is putting the lie to one of his central claims: that he would run the country like a business.
A madman at the helm.
A couple of days ago, he tweeted:
Despite the constant negative press covfefe
That was all. End of message. He deleted it after 9 (!) hours. When the press asked Sean Spicer about "covfefe", Spicer said: "The president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant".
Two points of importance here: 1. Spicer brazenly and idiotically lies to the press, and 2. this administration will never admit to any mistake or wrongdoing, be it ever so small.
2017-05-30This unspeakable president's first visit to Europe was a disaster. He does not understand how NATO works, hence he thinks they owe "large sums" to the U.S. and lectures to the other NATO leaders as if they were unruly school children. Likewise he does not know how trade works and calls the Germans "bad, very bad". The reason: "Look at the millions of cars they sell in the U.S. Horrible. We're going to stop that."
True, there are (almost) no Chevrolets in Europe, but he does not recognize the many Fords and Opels, and he does not acknowledge that BMW, Daimler, and VW have large production facilities in the United States. A Bloomberg commentator lists the various blunders of this trip and concludes:
Trump refuses to understand things that go against his deep convictions. He wants to tailor reality to them [...]
Prior to that, he had curtseyed to the Saudis (after ridiculing Obama for 'bowing' to them). As one twitter user put it:
Trump didn't bow like that sissy Obama. He curtseyed. But it was a very manly curtsey.
And he left a note at Yad Vashem:
IT IS A GREAT HONOR TO BE HERE WITH ALL OF MY FRIENDS – SO AMAZING + WILL NEVER FORGET!
Various commentators have observed that the cultural gap between the U.S. and Europe is widening. Seemingly small signs are: #45 pushing aside a fellow NATO head of state, and a House candidate body slamming a reporter.
There will be a lot more where that came from. The direction is: (even) more violence, (even) less solidarity.
An Ohio Charter School manager says in one of John Oliver’s shows: „Education is first, last, and always a business.“
No, it is not! Not in a civilized society! Is this guy Ferengi or what?
The American Dream is the dream of winning, winning the lottery as it were. People see that other people win the lottery, and they are told: if you work hard enough and do the right thing, you will win, too. And even if they never win — which must be the vast majority — they still believe that it is OK because it "could have worked": the exact words of a toothless haggard man I once saw in an interview. And no!, it couldn't have. Because the game is rigged from the get-go.
On the one hand, this is the American optimism. Never give up. Keep trying. Keep working hard. It is this optimism which makes America invincible, makes it capable of accomplishing truly incredible projects. And, on the other hand, it is a tragedy.
Many of those who think they could still win, will in the end fall prey to the vilest scumbags on the planet: They will give their last dollars to psychopathic evangelical cocksuckers like Mike Murdock (or the late Gene Scott and many others) for the promise that by the grace of God it shall return to them hundredfold, which, of course, it never does. Police Departments who buy themselves costly toys from the money stolen via Civil Forfeiture. Municipal fines that get outsourced to private firms for collection so that the citizen pays 10 or 50 times the amount of his original parking ticket. And then there are payday loans, subprime mortgages, or Steve Mnuchin's "forecloure machine". Vultures! Rats! The last companions of the dreamer. And if it should happen that you are arrested for driving on an expired licence or urinating in public or some such minor misdemeanor, you are fucked. The U.S. has the world's highest per capita incarceration rate, and American prisons are institutions of vengeance and brutal retaliation, not of resocialization. Because 'losers' are worthless. The word "worth" has to be followed by a number: he is worth 10 million. A loser is worth zero.
And #45 is the new and very befitting overlord of this entire tragedy. Because his followers will not be diverted fom the dream which in reality is a dystopia almost as bad already as the movies prospectively made about it.
President Donald Trump on Thursday reflected on his first 100 days in office with a wistful look at his life before the White House.
I don't wanna play any more, Mom. Can I go home now? ...Mom? ...Mom!!?
#45 has made it abundantly clear that he values the freedom to shoot people much higher than the freedom of speech. Accordingly, he will be the first president since Reagan to skip the annual White House corrspondent's dinner and speak at the NRA convention instead.
Guns will be prohibited at the event!
Juche is the state ideology of North Korea. For all practical purposes, it is a religion. The official website of the DPRK explains:
[…]The Juche idea means […] that the masters of the revolution and construction are the masses of the people and that they are also the motive force of the revolution and construction.
The ‘Ten Principles for the Establishment of the One-Ideology System’ are regulations that govern the everyday lives of the North Korean people. They were officially announced by Kim Jong Il in 1974.
The Ten Commandments, as it were. Here’s the first three of them:
1. We must give our all in the struggle to unify the entire society with the revolutionary ideology of Great Leader Kim Il Sung.
And in a booklet by Kim Jong Il (On The Juche Idea. Treatise Sent to the National Seminar on the Juche Idea Held to Mark the 70th Birthday of the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung, 1982) we are instructed thusly:
In our time the masses of the people have emerged as true masters of the world, and through their struggle the world is being changed more and more to serve the masses. Today the position and role of the masses of the people as masters of the world are becoming stronger than ever before. This reality proves more patently the validity and vitality of the principle of Juche philosophy that man is the master of everything and decides everything. (p.10f.)
People are “masses”, and they are the masters of the world. Except that they need help with mastery and independence, hence they must slavishly depend on a leader in order to be masterfully independent. Or so.
Anyway, we got ourselves a Trinity (I'd almost bet my left nut there won't be a fourth). And we have Commandments. And a theological theory that should have impressed the shit out of L. Ron Hubbard. Plus rules and rituals to shape your lives by. Very nice.
Heresy, of course, means death. Apostasy probably means the kind of death a decent person couldn't even think of. The gods of this religion are the ones Shakespeare must have had in mind when he wrote “As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods. They kill us for their sport” (King Lear, IV,1).
So it goes. You're setting out to be master of everything, decide everything, and before you know it you end up with a fat kid of homicidal disposition being your god.
Or with a rich old fart—who is equally out of sync with reality and doesn't give a fuck about truth—being your president.
So Whatshisface is deploying an "Armada, very powerful" to North Korea. Except that the [small] group of ships is going in the opposite direction heading for Australia. Spicer explains that it is going in the right direction, to North Korea: "It was heading there, it is heading there."
John Oliver delivers the straight dope on "Trump vs. Truth" and on "The American Health Care Act" — which will "repeal and replace" the Affordable Health Care Act, making health care American instead of Affordable. But hey, "America First", right? The dumbasses that voted for #45 will pay through their noses for it.
We are the species that has a reflexive consciousness capable of sophisticated planning, theorizing, and thinking about ourselves. And most of the time we don't know what to do with it except creating spectacular technological advances. We are like 7-year-olds with machine guns and atomic bombs.
A president like Trump can have an impact even if he never manages to get a single law passed, simply by unleashing stupidity as a revolutionary force.
One reporter tasked with covering the appointments says the staffing issue comes down to the same question we always have about Trump: Is this a scheme to destroy government, or cluelessness? "It's just so hard to tell," he says, "where this falls on the stupid-to-evil spectrum."
... writes Matt Taibbi in a Rolling Stone feature reviewing the 45th president's appointees for his cabinet.
The king of Jordan speaks English far better than the president of the United States. How embarassing is that?
The basic trick of any stage magician is to create a diversion or deflection that catches the attention of the audience and prevents them from seeing what else is going on — sometimes right before their very eyes. Nancy Pelosi called the 45th president "Deflector-in-Chief". The intricate veil has been withdrawn, though, and the deflections have become insultingly unsophisticated. While the media are busy following up on baseless allegations, something else is happening...
WTF — The Fake News Outlet
• Today, Chancellor Merkel admitted to rigging the presidential election in order to secure her own re-election in September 2017. "I needed a real jerk next to whom I would look good", she explained.
• Albanian secret service stole the only item in the president's library:
• After the Dutch and German governments rejected demands by Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan to conduct rallies in their countries supporting his plans for a new authoritarian presidential constitution, the White House issued a formal invitation to address The Young Turks in America. Erdogan seemed to be caught off guard: "Who the fück is Trümp?"
[...to be continued]
Politico headlined about Angela Merkel's visit to the White House:
The leader of the free world meets Donald Trump.They mean it! And they are not the only ones.
News on the 'Obama Tapp':
"There’s no question that there were surveillance techniques used,” Spicer said from the White House briefing room podium on Monday. "He didn’t use the NSA, he didn’t use the CIA, he didn’t use the FBI, and he didn’t use the Department of Justice. He used GCHQ."
Not only does this despicable gang accuse the preceding president of a serious crime, but also their closest ally — who has been trying so hard to suck up to them. I am almost ready to commiserate with Mrs May. Almost.
GCHQ did respond unusually quickly, though ("nonsense, ridiculous, should be ignored"). The White House apologized... or did they?... no, looks like they didn't...
I hear by demand a second investigation, after Schumer, of Pelosi for her close ties to Russia, and lying about it. [deleted after 2 minutes]
I hearby demand a second investigation, after Schumer, of Pelosi for her close ties to Russia, and lying about it.
I hereby demand a second investigation, after Schumer, of Pelosi for her close ties to Russia, and lying about it.
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!
Is it legal for a sitting President to be "wire tapping" a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!
I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!
How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!
How do you "drain the swamp of government corruption"? You populate your cabinet with billionaires who don't need to bribe politicians because now they are the politicians themselves.
Once the spectators are blinded, the veil can be lifted from the darkness.
Congratulations to Thomas Perez, who has just been named Chairman of the DNC. I could not be happier for him, or for the Republican Party!
A distinctive characteristic of totalitarian leaders is their total lack of a sense of humor. Cynicism, yes, but no humor, especially not about oneself.
Earlier in the afternoon, Spicer held an off-camera "gaggle" with reporters in his West Wing office, as opposed to the regular briefing in the White House briefing room.
We have now begun testing the waters by excluding some of them... see how it goes.
Bannon calls the media "the opposition party". (Looks like the Democrats don't even count.) The president repeatedly calls them "enemies of the people". Opposition consists of enemies of the people. Ah yes, we're getting there...
“We’re going to war in the South China Sea in five to 10 years, aren’t we?” Mr Bannon said on his radio show in March 2016.
Stephen Bannon is a very dangerous individual. He believes in destruction as a means to get to where he's headed: back to the future.
What would an American businessman running a country as if it were his own company do with economically strong states or unions like, say, Europe?
My statement as to what's happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden.
Ah yes, a broadcast happened "last night", not in Sweden but about Sweden — like I said: it looks like he is not all there.
[...] you look at what's happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this. Sweden. They took in large numbers. They're having problems like they never thought possible.
I called Sweden. Sweden said that last night they had dinner, watched some TV, and went to bed.
So we're going to have a whole big situation.
Yes, we are going to have a whole big situation. The situation being that apparently the president of the United States (joined by a substantial number of his followers) is not living in the same reality as the rest of us.
The Senate confirmed Scott Pruitt on Friday to run the Environmental Protection Agency, putting a seasoned legal opponent of the agency at the helm of President Trump’s efforts to dismantle major regulations on climate change and clean water — and to cut the size and authority of the government’s environmental enforcer.
The fox is now guarding the henhouse.
The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!
Republican Senator John McCain commented: "That's how dictators get started." Absolutely. And the question arises: How do dictators get stopped?
The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by "intelligence" like candy. Very un-American!
Information is being illegally given to the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost by the intelligence community (NSA and FBI?).Just like Russia
This Russian connection non-sense is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton's losing campaign.
The fake news media is going crazy with their conspiracy theories and blind hatred. @MSNBC & @CNN are unwatchable. @foxandfriends is great!
Thank you, Mr. President. We now understand that the word "publish" means to write and/or broadcast something you like. Writing and broadcasting something you don't like is called "leaking". We are baffled how such a simple and straightforward fact could have eluded us. It also explains why—in your press conference with "Bibi" (Netanyahu)—you called on two "publishers" and not on any of the "leakers". The real scandal is not that Mr.Flynn most likely did something unlawful but that it got leaked and given out like candy which is very un-American. In fact it's Mexican. Bad hombres down there. We need that wall. Funny, how when you start thinking about it, everything falls into place. Thank you, again.
Just leaving Florida. Big crowds of enthusiastic supporters lining the road that the FAKE NEWS media refuses to mention. Very dishonest!
We humbly extend our sincerest apologies:
The president, our beloved supreme leader, is just leaving Florida. Big crowds of enthusiastic supporters are lining the road. Many are crying to see him go, others are offering their babies or a banana. Chants are erupting all over: "Dear leader, we adore you. You are the blond and orange sun in our universe. You give us life." Traffic has come to a complete standstill. Everywhere people are discussing the event, some trying desperately to get to the scene in order to catch one last glimpse of the departing president.
We are the best. Best ever. Believe me. We will Trump what we can, put a Bannon the rest, and proceed with the Conway after we Spicer up a little bit.
It is getting difficult to keep up. Betsy DeVos, a billionaire's wifey who doesn't know her ass from third base as far as schools and education are concerned, is now Secretary of Education. Then the department store Nordstrom dropped Ivanka Trump's fashion line:
My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person -- always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!
He doesn't fucking get it!!
..and he is not going to. Arguing with the likes of him is like arguing with a conspiracy theorist. The same goes for his followers, I guess. As one commentator put it:
There's no doubt Trump supporters are very loyal to him personally. Keep in mind that Trump infamously bragged that he could even shoot a person on Fifth Avenue in New York and his supporters would still be on his side. And according to a CNN/ORC poll, while Trump has only a 44% approval rating overall, 90% of Republicans think he's doing a good job.
Three days after his inauguration, a late night show in the Netherlands published a hilarious spoof video that went viral quickly and triggered similar ones from most European countries and other nations around the world. However, even the world's laughter cannot entirely outweigh my sense of creepiness and dread.
“Protesting has become a profession now,” Spicer said. “They have every right to do that, don’t get me wrong. But I think we need to call it what it is. It’s not these organic uprisings that we have seen over the last several decades. The tea party was a very organic movement. This has become a very paid, Astroturf-type movement.”
Paid thugs is what they are, not like the tea party which was organically fertilized by the Koch brothers.
The failing @nytimes writes total fiction concerning me. They have gotten it wrong for two years, and now are making up stories & sources!
The NY Times wrote (among other stories concerning the 45th president):
In his first days as President Trump’s pick to lead the Federal Communications Commission, Ajit Pai has aggressively moved to roll back consumer protection regulations created during the Obama presidency.
[...] the supposed terrorist attack in Bowling Green, Ky., that Ms. Conway, a top presidential adviser, invoked on MSNBC last week to justify President Trump’s contentious travel ban never happened. (And, no, the reason you had never heard of it was not because the Dishonest Media ignored the alleged carnage at the time of its non-happening, as Ms. Conway alleged.)
2017-02-04 - 2017-02-06
A federal judge in Washington state halted the presidential travel ban for citizens of seven primarily muslim countries.
The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!
What is our country coming to when a judge can halt a Homeland Security travel ban and anyone, even with bad intentions, can come into U.S.?
Because the ban was lifted by a judge, many very bad and dangerous people may be pouring into our country. A terrible decision
Just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril. If something happens blame him and court system. People pouring in. Bad!
The judge opens up our country to potential terrorists and others that do not have our best interests at heart. Bad people are very happy!
I have instructed Homeland Security to check people coming into our country VERY CAREFULLY. The courts are making the job very difficult!
Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election. Sorry, people want border security and extreme vetting.
I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it. Some FAKE NEWS media, in order to marginalize, lies!
He can't get over it!
We must keep "evil" out of our country!
Too late. Some of it became president.
[...] President Trump blasted Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull over a refugee agreement and boasted about the magnitude of his electoral college win, according to senior U.S. officials briefed on the Saturday exchange. Then, 25 minutes into what was expected to be an hour-long call, Trump abruptly ended it.
Stephen K. Bannon, White House Top Adviser and Chief Strategist:
“Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s power,”
“I am Thomas Cromwell in the court of the Tudors,”
Well, OK then, Cromwell got executed for treason.
The U.S. has a 60 billion dollar trade deficit with Mexico. It has been a one-sided deal from the beginning of NAFTA with massive numbers of jobs and companies lost. If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting.
The Mexican President canceled his visit to Washington.
Sean Spicer defends inauguration claim: 'Sometimes we can disagree with the facts'
Kellyanne Conway says Donald Trump’s team has ‘alternative facts.’ [On the inauguration crowd]
Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, [...] harangued journalists, accusing the media of "deliberately false reporting" what happened on the day of the inauguration.
Even if there is proof to the contrary, "from this day forward" we will tell you the truth. The Press Secretary will inform you of today's truth. Soup of the day, truth of the day, same difference.
Trump spent much of his speech -- which he gave in front of a memorial wall that honors the 117 CIA officers who have fallen in the line of duty -- focusing on the size of the crowd [...] at his inauguration, his appearance on magazine covers and saying he "has a running war with the media."
In a tweet on January 11, he had accused the intelligence agencies of acting like Nazi Germany. And the media reported it. So it is their fault.
"We are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the people," the newly sworn-in president said [...]
Soon [in fact less than an hour] after Donald Trump was sworn in as president, his administration undid one of Barack Obama’s last-minute economic-policy actions: a mortgage-fee cut under a government program that’s popular with first-time home buyers and low-income borrowers.
OK. Listen up. The deal is: we are transferring power back to you, the people, starting with a transfer of your money to me and my cronies.
In a tweet on Saturday, Trump [...] accused China of "stealing" a US navy drone [...] in what he said was an "unpresidented" act.
Nothing ever happened with any of these women. Totally made up nonsense to steal the election. Nobody has more respect for women than me!
Donald Trump bragged in vulgar terms about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women during a 2005 conversation caught on a hot microphone, saying that "when you’re a star, they let you do it," according to a video obtained by The Washington Post.
The recording is on Youtube.
Obama was the founder of ISIS.
The media is so after me on women Wow, this is a tough business. Nobody has more respect for women than Donald Trump!
