Archive for the ‘His Fraudulency Donald The Trump’ Category

I love all the MAGAts comparing the Orange Racist Pussy Grabber and Reagan. Yeah, let’s look at that comparison.

I lived through Reagan. Both Reagan and His Fraudulency Donald the Trump share the similarity of being delusional liars leading an administration comprised of crony criminals. And being washed up actors. And bigots who accused entire minority races of being criminals and rapists. And hatred of the press. Oooh, how Reagan hated the press. As his administration officials went to jail by the dozen (138 in all), Reagan fumed as the press covered each and every one being convicted. He held fewer press conferences than any other modern President, considering the press the enemy and unworthy of his time and attention. (Well, the fact that he was going dotty by his second term was probably part of that too). And hey, Reagan was into crony capitalism too. That’s why so many of his administration officials went to jail, they were using government for their own profit, just like Trump is doing with his many decisions that just *happen* to enrich Trump-owned businesses like Mar-a-Lago Resort in Florida.

Of course, there’s also big differences between Reagan and SCROTUS. Reagan cloaked his bigotry and his hatred of the press behind a shield of geniality. Cheeto Mussolini is just an ass. Reagan faced a real, if declining, existential threat in the form of the Soviet Union. The Orange Racist Russian Stooge faces a bunch of illiterate goat rapists in the Middle East, a China that is more interested in buying America than in fighting America, and a Russia armed with rusty leftover Soviet gear that is a threat to former Soviet states but no threat to Western Europe or the United States. And, for all his senility towards the end of his term, Reagan actually had governing experience and his White House ran like a well oiled machine. SCROTUS’s White House by contrast is a disaster where people wander around not knowing what they’re supposed to do and nobody even knows how to turn on the lights because they fired all the people who knew how to do that.

So yeah, compare Reagan and Tump all you want, MAGAts. That comparison doesn’t make your God-Emperor Donald the Trump look good at all. Just sayin’.

So I’m told I should give Trump a chance.

Look. I hoped for the best with Trump. I mean, I actually agree with about 50% of what he said during his campaign, far more than the other Republican nominees. So I *did* give him a chance. I gave him three months of chance, actually, starting from his election on November 9 to the week of his coronation on January 20.

I gave Trump a chance. I gave him all that time after he was elected to stop acting like a thug and start acting like a President. During that time, I waited for him to select competent advisors, I waited for him to stop the inflammatory rhetoric and start sounding like a President, I waited for him to make policy statements that made a lick of sense as actual policy rather than campaign rhetoric, and I waited in vain. He’s *still* not doing any of those things, and he won’t. He had his chance with me, and he blew it. I don’t give second chances.

If Trump is going to pull his presidency out of the pit, he’s going to have to prove it to me. Thus far, he’s done nothing of the sort. He just keeps digging deeper, to the point where honorable men like Admiral Robert Hayward refuse roles in the Trump administration because, in Admiral Hayward’s words, “it’s a shit sandwich”.

I gave Trump a chance. He blew it. It’s up to him now. If he earns a second chance, he’ll get it. But he has to earn it, I’m not going to give it away, and thus far, he hasn’t. So far, all he’s proven is that he’s a schmuck.

Russia is fake news.

This (Trump) administration is running like a fine-tuned machine. (Ignore the flying machine parts!).

Nuclear holocaust would be like no other!

Shoot that Russian spy ship out of the water!

I’m not ranting and raving. (Said while he was ranting and raving).

And so on and so forth. The press conference was officially called to announce his new pick for Secretary of Labor, given that his previous pick turned out to be a wife beater and worse (maybe he needs to do more of that “extreme vetting” on his own people, six of’em got fired today for failing their FBI background test). It turned into a demented ranting and raving session.

Immediately after the press conference, Trump’s pick to succeed General Flynn as National Security Advisor, former Navy SEAL Vice Admiral Robert Harward, turned down the job. Not because of the press conference, but, rather, because Trump was going to saddle him with staffers not of his own choosing. Harward said “Fuck that shit,” and went home. It is becoming apparent even to people outside the administration such as Admiral Harward that the Trump White House is a toxic working environment where underlings are appointed under bosses with orders to backstab the bosses. Given that, nobody who’s even the least bit competent is going to want anything to do with the Trump White House. So, seems like Donald Trump is going to hire the best people he can get… but they’re all going to be losers, because winners like Admiral Harward want nothing to do with the toxic Trump brand or the toxic working environment he’s creating in the White House.

Flynn’s gone, but top Republicans are apparently planning to investigate his ties to Russia and what he told them. At the same time, our very own allies are conducting intelligence operations against us because they can’t figure out what His Fraudulency Donald the Trump is up to. I think they will be disappointed. I don’t think even Cheeto Mussolini knows what he’s up to.

Meanwhile, Andrew Puzder is out as Labor secretary. Puzder racked up a litany of sins. He employed an illegal housekeeper for years and failed to pay taxes. He apparently abused his wife, complete with a video of his ex-wife on Oprah explaining what he did to her. It came out that he liked illegal immigration because it gave him cheaper labor for his stores. MoJo came up with dozens of labor law violations in his restaurants. And so forth. About the only thing people didn’t accuse him of was talking to the Russians. Must have been the only appointee of the Orange Racist Russian Stooge who wasn’t.

I can’t remember any administration that had so much turmoil in its first four weeks. This isn’t normal, folks. It isn’t. It really isn’t.

Time to pray to the Great Penguin to save America… not that She will. She’s much too fat and lazy for that. Sigh.

Daw. Aren’t they a cute couple?

Meanwhile, Trump says he expects Russia to return Crimea to Ukraine. I can hear the conversation now… “DAH-nold! I thought we were FREEENDS! Why do you do me like this, DAH-nold? There are theengs that you do not want seen, da?” (taps on videotape labeled “pee pee tape”).

Meanwhile, a former intelligence operative for one of our long-time allies says, “In the 80’s whenever we wanted to know what USA was up to, we did a deal with the Russians. Now, we wouldn’t even need to go that far! They’d be too busy laughing in hysterics! Heck, many I knew would be falling over each other to tell us, just to get the first laugh in!”

That’s what our allies think of us now…

Out like Flynn: Apparently the leaking especially from the intelligence agencies that General Flynn was a Russian asset who lied to Trump and Pence about what he’d discussed with the Russian ambassador got to be too much for everybody. He’s now “resigned to spend more time with his family” (SNRK!).

This is not normal. It isn’t. It really isn’t. Not even FIVE FUCKING WEEKS and already a senior official has had to resign due to misconduct?! Un-fucking believable! So now Trump needs to get himself a new National Security Advisor. I wonder who, exactly, he’s going to get? I dunno, but I can tell you what he’s going to get:

bozo

Remember, Donald Trump said that his Cabinet was going to be the best people he could get. So these… people… are the best people he can get.

We are so fucked.
