Trump Appointees and Nominees Smell Like Week-Old Dead Fish

Good Day World!

Frances Langum has Trump's modus operandi down when it came to how he picks government department heads;

"If you want to destroy a department, you head it up with someone who is stupid."

Making Rick Perry the Secretary of Energy, and Betsy (I don't know why everyone doesn't like me) DeVoss, Education Secretary are perfect examples.

They're both pathetically stupid, and under-qualified.

Perry didn't even know there was a Department of Energy when Trump appointed him to head it up.

And DeVoss, who is against public schools and thinks charter schools are the way to go, is getting zero respect from school administrators and teachers. No wonder. She has absolutely no experience in school administration or teaching.

You can see the trend.

Trump's nominee for the Agricultural post, Sam Clovis, had to withdraw recently, not because he had absolutely no credentials in science or agriculture, but because he got caught up in the Trump election campaign investigation.

Otherwise, for the first time, instead of a top scientist in the field for the job, we would have had another idiot embedded in our government.
None of Trump's appointees, or nominees, will ever pass the smell test, but that doesn't matter. They don't have to. 

As the backlog of nominees by Trump continues to grow, we can be sure his loyal minions are waiting for their big payoff. And, they all smell like week-old dead fish.

Do 'Minions' Know They're 'Minions?'

Good Day World!

As I watch our democracy being systematically dismantled by Trump's minions a pressing question comes to mind; do minions know they're minions?

Don't laugh. I'm serious. 

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz was supposed to testify Wednesday before the House Committee on Homeland Security, but the hearing was abruptly canceled.

Trump minions thought nothing about stopping someone critical of Trump from testifying to how bad things still were in Puerto Rico.

Cruz was right, when after she found out that her testimony had been abruptly cancelled she said, "Trump can't handle the truth" to reporters in the Capital hallway.

The minions know what's really happening however. It's their job to make Trump look good regardless of the dastardly things he does that affects millions of lives.

Have these minions sold their souls to follow Donny Little-Hands to hell?

What if they don't know their minions? Now there's a thought. They're blindly following a maniac just because they love him.

I think this conversation needs to go to another level.

Say Voodoo.

You've heard of zombies haven't you?

Fox News and Friends Are Trump's Main Advisors

Good Day World!

Fox News and our Liar-in-Chief are partners in crime.

They meet every morning.

Afterwards, Donny gets on his golden shitter and starts tweeting.

By the time his advisors show up with the official intelligence briefings they're too late to correct his errors and personal attacks.

The attack in Manhattan by a radicalized Muslim is just another example of the collusion between Fox and their Trump boy.

Instead of tweets of condolences to the eight murdered people's families, Donny turned it into a partisan attack against top Democrat Chuck Schumer for his part in passing immigration laws.

Unlike the shootings in Las Vegas where Trump declined to talk politics right after it, he immediately launched into a political rant after watching Fox and Friends.

When press secretary Sarah (I lie easily) Huckabee Sanders was confronted with what was different between the two shootings, she came up with a word salad that meant exactly nothing.

In summary, she deflected the question and said there was no difference.

It's disheartening to have a president who embraces lies and the vehicles that spawn them like Fox, or Brietbart. 

No doubt the producers of Fox and Friends are enjoying this opportunity to guide the president and influence laws. It's a once-in-a-lifetime gig.

New Board Game: Clue 2.0 - Trapping Trump and His Minions

Good Day World!

It's been like playing a real life game of Clue.

Since Trump came into office it's been one big who done it?

Did he collude with the Ruskies? Did his son? Did AG Sessions?

Who was in the room at Trump Tower?

Who said what in a cozy chat that started off as a way to shovel dirt on Hillary Clinton?

Who changed the Republican platform at the last minute to favor Russia? The Republican National Committee adopted language favoring Russia. Why?

Col. Mustard is a Russian no-good-nic ambassador named Sergey Ivanovich Kislyak.

Trump staffers have tried to deny talking with him, then lied about the content of the their conversations when they were caught.

Unlike the actual board game of Clue, it's not about trying to find out who murdered Mr. Boddy.

Instead, the object is to discover how many of Trump's staff and campaign team members worked with Russia to steal the election.

Win the game when Trump is impeached, and tried for obstruction of justice.

Trump in Fantasyland

Good Day World!

Since Trump slunk into office, the White House has taken on a new name; Fantasyland.

It's inhabitants use magical thinking when it comes to real world problems.

For example;

 When Trump directed his administration to declare America’s opioid overdose crisis a public health emergency, Republicans swiftly praised his “bold national leadership.

But with no new funding, many public health experts and state officials said it was “magical thinking” to imagine that the declaration would stem the tide of opioid overdoses that has already killed 183,000.

Having perfected the art of the con, Trump has managed to infect the Republican party with puppets who believe he's a magician that will "Make America Great Again." 

It's almost entertaining watching Trump trod over every law that inhibits his billionaire friends. When he waves his wand of bullshit his supporters say it smells like flowers.

When Trump pulls a tweet out of his hat you can be sure it's a lie. If Trump gets caught lying he doesn't hesitate to double down on the lie by digging into his bag of magic tricks.

Now, you see it. Now, you don't. 

Washington DC has become Trump's playground and stage. He signs meaningless executive orders while grandstanding in the Rose Garden.

Trump has always lived in a world of money and privilege - his personal fantasyland. Unfortunately, the rest of the country is now caught up in his charade of life.

Sadly, Trump has always stayed one step ahead of the law. His bag of tricks have served him well thus far. In his world, he's popular and loved.

In reality, he still faces an investigation over collusion with the Russians, obstruction of justice, and the lowest favorability rating of any president in history.

He's going to have to dig deeper into his bag of tricks when the investigation is over and the truth comes out.

Let's hope the bag is finally empty when that happens.

Trumpies in Trouble: The Begininng of the End of the Trump Era

Good Day World!

I'm eagerly awaiting to see which Trumpie(s) is going to be indicted by the Robert S. Mueller III-led investigation into Russia’s meddling into the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Monday, could be the day that one of the shoes - and possibly more - of the centipede, aka Trump campaign (per Sen. McCain) are going to drop. 

There’s a list of Trump's top 2016 campaign aides, current and former White House aides and longtime confidants who could be rounded up by Mueller’s team early next week.

A desperate Trump has been trying all last week to divert the investigation with recent demands to investigate Hillary Clinton's emails, and allegedly corrupt uranium sale to Russia. 

It might be Tuesday, or even later, before people start getting arrested. A report by Roll Call suggests it could be as early as Monday morning.

I'm just guessing here, but I think Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn will be wearing handcuffs next week.

It's entirely possible however, they could be joined by Carter Page, Jared Kushner, and Donald Trump Jr.

I'll take one more guess about the ramifications of these arrests; Trump is going to call them fake news.
