Trump's Idea of Having Fun is Disgusting


                                              Good Day World!

Yesterday, our Slimeball-In-Charge offered another insight into what he considers fun.

After waiting for two weeks, Trump decided to go see the families and victims of the Santa Fe school shooting in Texas.

While boarding the plane he told reporters;

"We're going to have a little fun today. Thank you very much."

A little fun?

The pig bastard wasn't going to Disneyland for cripes sake! He was supposedly going to comfort families; something he didn't do in the Parkland, Florida shootings.

So why did he go to Santa Fe and ignore Parkland?

Simple. He was afraid to deal with the pro-active Parkland students.  The fear that none of his minions would be there to cheer him, like in his ridiculous rallies, played a part too.

What happened in Florida garnered national attention for the backlash against the NRA and the Republican Party that the surviving students fueled.

What happened in Santa Fe barely made a blip on the national political scene. The reasons why are complicated.

But the main reason Trump went to Texas was because there was no protesting students for him to face.

Even so, he still kept it at the down-low and snuck into a local hospital to visit some hand-picked survivors and their families.

I can't help wondering what part of this visit was fun? 

Did he get to meet and greet with NRA members in Texas? Was it fun to listen to the parents and the victims stories? I'm really at a loss to see how this PR visit could have been fun.

Trump's idea of having fun - from his first memories of pulling wings off of files - to teasing people with physical disabilities, is disgusting.

Restocking The Swamp: Trump Appoints Another Islamophobic Nut To His Team

Good Day World!

It's not easy keeping the swamp full in Washington DC these days. 

Between Trump's mercurial moods - your fired! - and ethics violations catching up to some of his swamp creatures, it's been a challenge for our Liar-In-Chief.

The latest addition to the swamp comes fully vetted by Trump himself. By placing Fred Fleitz as Chief of Staff of the National Security Council, he's assured his base that Muslims will be treated badly in America, and elsewhere in the world.

Here's a quick review of the scumbag:

He belongs to a group that propagates conspiracy theories like radical Muslims are infiltrating our government. By appointing him, the White House continues to be the nation's central organizing body for white supremacists.

No doubt Trump thinks he's got the right man because he's a fellow conspiracist; promoting hate through his books and through his leadership in fringe groups. 

In other words, he fits all the requirements to keep Trump's swamp fully stocked.

Trump Longs For Days When He Was a Star On The Apprentice

Good Day World!

What we know today:

Roseanne Bar got fired from ABC on Monday for calling a black woman a combination of an ape and a Muslim.

 It wasn't the first time she called a black woman an ape either.

At first she tried to defend her nasty remark by saying Ambien, a sleeping aid, made her do it. That defense quickly crumbled when the manufacturer of Ambien, Sanofi, fired back that "racism is not a known side effect" of it's product. 

By Tuesday reporters asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders if Trump had anything to say about his pal Roseanne's comment, and her subsequent firing from her show.

Sanders said "That's not what the president is looking at. That's not what he's spending his time on. And I do think we have a lot bigger things going on in the country right now, certainly the president is spending his time when it comes to policy."   

On Wednesday Trump threw Sanders under the bus (again) and went after Bob Iger and ABC for using a "double standard" by firing Barr, his good buddy. 

So much for Sanders claim that Trump wasn't following the controversy. Once again she's been made to look like an idiot.

With all those things that Trump has to deal with according to Sanders, it's odd that he finds time to not only tweet about Hollywood gossip about Barr, he even invited Kim Kardashian to the White House yesterday.

Why you ask? Because she wanted him to grant her great-grandmother a pardon for her drug conviction - selling cocaine.

Trump is never far from his reality-TV pals, and has maintained a relationship with many of them. He misses being on his old reality show and being able to fire someone with no repercussions.

With all the weighty matters confronting Trump, it's apparent he still wants to live in the alternate universe of The Apprentice.

Gall is Good, Facts are Bad, Lies Lead the Way in Society Today

Good Day World!

In Trump America gall is good. Facts are considered frivolous and lies are alternate realities.

It's not just in Washington that we see this trio of untruths flourish. Televangelists - who always seem to be on the edge of being cult leaders - manage to make millions of dollars from brain-washed congregations.

Example: 

One Louisiana-based televangelist, Jesse Duplantis, is asking his followers to donate money for a $54 million jet that can "go anywhere in the world in one stop."

Mind you, his loyal followers have already bought him three jets. But apparently they aren't up to his standards because they had to stop and fuel up more often.

Damn! The worries of a working cult leader. Duplantis wants this new jet because it goes further than the other three. He claims that if Jesus were here today he'd ride his jet instead of a donkey!

The reason Duplantis needs a private jet in the first place? He doesn't want to ride with the demons in commercial airlines.

Say what? Demons? You gotta be kidding me. But it's true. This sack of sanctimonious shit has his followers in the palm of his greedy hand.

He's not the only one. These days, televangelists seem to NEED jets to spread their false words. It takes pure gall, but there's no lack of it in your typical televangelist.

Then there's the right-wing evangelicals who are embracing Trump like the next messiah. They gladly set aside the facts about what Trump's doing, and has done, to divide this country.

Trump has set the standard for the rejection of truth in our society today. His supporters spread his lies like a virus in America.

At what point are the majority of Americans going to stand up for truth and reject the lies of a demagogue?

The answer lies in the midterms.

In order to stop Trump, Democrats need to retake the House of Representatives this November. That's the first step. The next one is impeaching the slimy bastard who has caused so much chaos in our country.

There's No Coincidences In Trump's Orbit

Good Day World!

The Set-Up: Trump vows to help a major Chinese telecommunications company from going bust. 

Forget about everything Trump once agreed to about the company being a bad player and threatening national security.

Despite a history of violating American limits on doing business - and spying on us with cell phones - Trump suddenly wants to reverse the sanctions he put on the Chinese company - ZTE - when Congress forced him to take action.

At about the same time this reversal was taking place, lo and behold...Ivanka Trump was awarded seven new trademarks in China. Isn't that fortuitous? 

But wait! There's more; it's not only Ivanka's business getting a big boost by holding hands with Chinese officials. It turns out, in this extremely short time frame, the Chinese government made a $500 million loan for a theme park in Indonesia to...are you ready? Trump properties. 

Coincidences?

Only if you believe in the tooth fairy, or Bigfoot.

Let's get real here. We're watching corruption unfold like an accordion with Donny's sneaky backdoor deals. Tit for tat. You rub my back, and I'll rub yours. You kiss my ass, and I'll kiss yours.

Democrats are calling for an investigation into ethics violations over this whole China mess, but they might as well be talking to a room full of deaf mutes wearing MAGA caps.

Those are Trump's negotiating tools. His art of the deal is more like the art of the steal, as he rips Americans off at every opportunity.

He's making the rich...richer, with tax breaks that corporations once had wet dreams about getting.

The Setup: Trump's attacked the Russia investigation from day one, doing everything in his power to stop it by getting rid of Mueller and Rosenstein, and other assorted tactics like lying about Obama putting a spy in his campaigns camp.

Coincidence?

Oh hell, no! Those spineless GOP jellyfish in Congress are colluding with the president!

Fun fact: Trump has 100 trademarks in China.

How A Sitting US President Normalized Lying


                                               Good Day World!

There's never been a more outright liar in the Oval Office in American history than Donald Trump. That's saying something when you think about it.

Pundits that keep score of his lies say they've increased since his first year in office from 4-5 daily, to up to nine times daily in the last five months!

That's outrageous. But it's the new normal.

How does Trump get away with so many lies? Mainstream polls show an average of 80 percent of Americans believe he tells lies.

Yet, he continues to lie at an alarming rate. His latest "Spy Gate" bullshit, shows how far he'll go...and with impunity. 

After 17 months of Trump lying daily, people are numb. They start to question reality. Just what Trump wants. 

We all know Donny's ego is colossal, but when he admits to seasoned reporter Leslie Stalh that he lies, on camera (60 Minutes), you know he's confident no one will do anything about it. 

Grinning like an albino ape, Trump said that he demeans and discredits the press so know one will believe negative stories about him.

Straight up. 

So why is it that tactic still working for Trump if the whole world knows he's a liar? A respected journalist visits Trump Tower after his victory in 2016 and records his hubris, but no one seemed to care.

Lying is contagious. Those around Trump have to lie their asses off - especially Sarah Huckabee Sanders. His West Wing staff followed his lead like lambs.

Meanwhile the Republicans in Congress continue to enable this blatant liar even after his numerous attacks against the intelligence community. He's openly threating the Department of Justice, and still no one has stopped him.

To my utter disgust, children can now see and hear these lies daily, coming from what was once the most respected office in all the land.

This doesn't bode well for the next generation who are growing up during this terrible time when we have a Liar-In-Chief running the country.

Right Wing Christians Claim Trump's Being Attacked By the Devil's Minions

Good Day World!

Sunday. A day set aside for worship. 

A day of peace. A day of rest.

A day for right-wing evangelicals to support the devil's spawn...Donald Trump.

Paul McGuire, evangelical author and radio show host, is leading the latest attacks against anyone who dares stand up to Trump.

The extent of the extremism we're seeing on the Christian Right is appalling. Their hateful attacks against anyone who is opposed to Trump and his corrupt regime, is hypocrisy times ten.

Here's how crazy it's gotten:

McGuire has accused anyone opposing Trump of literally being demonic! Really. 

I know it's hard to believe in this day and age of enlightenment, but there are people who believe crackpot theories like a globalist Luciferian rulership system out to get Donny.

This religious cult should be called Trumpism instead of evangelism. They claim we're experiencing one of the world's greatest spiritual battles when people resist Trump.

They're partly right about that. It's God versus Trump and his slavish minions.

These right-wingers sing Trump's praise while he systematically dismantles our democracy. All in the name of a God that doesn't fit in with the pantheon of great religions.

Trump Sneaks Lawyer in 'Gang of Eight' Meeting To Obstruct Justice

Good Day World!

Lawmakers are finally starting to realize the extent of Trump's effort to obstruct justice.

His all out attack on the Department of Justice (DOJ) in the last week, claiming his campaign was being spied on, is the latest example of the lies he spreads to muddy up the waters of the Russia investigation.

The DOJ has been knuckling under to Trump's demands to investigate his latest conspiracy theory.

On Thursday two of Trump's close cronies, Devin Nunes and Trey Gowdy, were going to meet with DOJ department heads, leaving the Democrats out of the loop, but at the last minutes Adam Schiff was allowed to attend.

Trump had demanded the meeting be held because he wanted to expose the FBI's confidential informant, and tie him into his phony spy conspiracy that his friends like Hannity were all too glad to attack.

Then later in the day when the so-called Gang of Eight (four Democrats and four Republicans) met to get the same briefing (after a bipartisan Congressional outcry) from the DOJ.

Trump sent his Chief of Staff Kelly and his lawyer to attend...a clear violation of the way things are done.

No White House members have ever been allowed to attend Gang of Eight meetings. Trump, as usual, flouted conventions (and possibly the law) and sent his two "spies" in to listen.

There's no doubt what's happening. Trump is panicking and has gone into a survival mode that's rocking the laws of our land with impunity.

I fault the DOJ for not fighting back at this point. Rosenstein is trying to appease Trump in hopes he won't fire Mueller  who is getting closer to announcing the results of his investigation.

But Trump is a bully, and giving in to him only makes matters worse. At some point, Rosenstein is going to have to stiffen his spine and stand up to these breeches of our laws and conventions.

It might cost him his job, but history will prove him right in resisting Trump's assault on everything we hold dear in America. 

Make no mistake, we are in a constitutional crisis and it's going to be up to Republicans to help stop Trump from crippling our democracy.

They can start by stop enabling the corrupt bastard!

Donny's Dream of 'Reality Show' Diplomacy With North Korea Dumped

                                            (NBC photo Illustration)                                

                                             Good Day World!

There was a rumor, right after Trump was elected, that circulated among the White House staff. 

According to this rumor, Trump told a staff member he "better like reality TV," because that's the way things were going to be with him as president.

He was right. A mixture of reality TV and an open assault against democracy have been getting him "yuge" ratings with his base.

The majority of the nation, and the world, thinks he's a narcissistic nut looking for applause in all the wrong places. His open desire to be like the strong men, aka dictators, that he worships, is deeply embarrassing coming from a US president.

During the whole North Korea dog and pony show in the last month or so, it looked like Trump might arrange a peace summit in Singapore. To the casual observer.

At one point Trump was fantasizing about how great the summit would be if it were held on the border between the two countries.

He talked about the party that could be held afterward as if the whole problem - stretching back for over four decades - could be solved in one hurried meeting.

It would be the pinnacle of Trump's wheeling and dealing career. That he even thought it was a realistic negotiation shows how na├»ve he can be. 

That certain Trump supporters starting talking about a Nobel Peace Prize for Trump BEFORE the meeting even took place is not surprising. They've bought into Trump's alternate reality.

I wonder what's going to happen to all those gold coins that Trump had minted to commemorate his great accomplishment, with his and Kim's faces on them? Taxpayers paid for that piece of vanity.

Trump, to his dismay, is finding out that being the president in real time isn't anything like his reality TV personality, where he could get away with saying anything without any repercussions.

A Deadly Sound Strikes American Diplomats Again, is it Russia's Work?


                                              Good Day World!

Someone has developed a new technological weapon that is baffling American authorities.

This new weapon has been described as an "acoustic element" such as a "high-pitched beam of sound," or a "baffling sensation akin to driving with the windows partially open in a car.

The weapon appears to have premiered in Cuba where numerous diplomats have suffered "acoustic element" injuries over the last year. Cuba has denied doing it.

Victims experience ear pain, headaches, ringing in one ear, vertigo, disorientation, attention issues and signs consistent with mild traumatic brain injury or a concussion.

Yesterday a report was released regarding an incident involving a US government employee stationed in China who reported "abnormal sensations of sound and pressure" suggesting a mild brain injury.

US officials have said the China incident is "entirely consistent" to those experienced by American diplomats posted in Havana.

Thus far officials have issued a health alert in China. There's very little public speculation on who is conducting these sonic attacks. 

That troubles me. It either means we have no idea of who is orchestrating these sonic attacks, or we've discovered Russia has a new weapon, and we don't want to admit it for security reasons.

I strongly suspect the culprit is Russia. 

They easily could have been the bad actor in both cases. Causing dissent between other countries and America is a primary goal of Putin. We saw that in the 2016 election.

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out with trade negotiations, and talks about North Korea with, China. 

The game is afoot...

Trump's Battle To Keep The Swamp Full

Good Day World!

Trump, aka swamp rat, has been fighting an uphill battle to keep the swamp in Washington DC well-stocked since the first month of his Russia/Saudi,UAE assisted theft of the presidency.

Here's a list of 30 White House staff and cabinet members who were appointed by Trump, who are gone now. To Trump's dumb surprise, it's harder to keep the swamp full than he thought.

Nearly every one of the 30 people listed above, were involved in scandals to some degree.

Several of his current appointees, Scott Pruitt, Ben Carson, and Betsy DeVos, are being investigated for a range of reasons running from ethics violations to ripping off taxpayers with over-the-top indulgences.

Here's an interesting contrast to what's actually happening:



Remember when Donny was going TO DRAIN THE SWAMP? Oct. 25th, 2016

Blog Break: Stress Has Me on The Ropes

I'm not going to be posting anything for a while. I've had this blog for nearly 20 years, through thick and thin times. But I reall...
