Donald Trump calls the mother of a dead soldier a liar a day after he told his widow that her husband “knew what he was signing up for”.

What an ass. Even George W. Bush of “Heckuva job Brownie” fame wasn’t that kind of ass. I mean, fuck. Donald Trump makes George W. Bush look good? How fucking bad is that?!

Meanwhile, Mr. Trump: No, when I walked into that recruiter’s office, I wasn’t signing up to die. I was signing up to, hopefully, make sure the nation’s enemies died. A bit of a difference there….

So a New York housing development that is half-financed by HUD is up for sale and Trump stands to get millions if the sale goes through. And who approves the sale? Well, Donald Trump’s HUD, of course. Nope, no possibility of corruption there, nosirree!

All of this could have been avoided if Trump had sold his properties and interests in properties and put it all into a blind trust that invested it in an index fund before running for President. But he couldn’t do that, because he’s insolvent — he owes more on his properties than they’re worth. He claims all these billions of assets, but what he doesn’t tell you is that every single one of them is mortgaged to the hilt.

Which of course is why he ran for President in the first place — as a scam to get money out of people. Then his ego wouldn’t let him quit when, to everybody’s surprise, he won the Republican nomination. And then with a little help from his Russian friends and Wikileaks plus a little help from FBI director James Comey (who got fired by Trump for his help in electing Trump), he got elected President. And now he can really run some scams…

“It’s hard to deal with people who confuse Austria and Australia, but there’s nothing you can do about this. Apparently, this is the level of political culture within a certain part of the U.S. establishment.” — Vladimir Putin, about the Trump Administration

Oh Pooty Poot, sounds like you’re having buyer’s remorse about Trump now. LOL.

I mean, look. Sheriff Joe Arpaio was convicted of torturing Hispanic people in his jails. Hundreds of Hispanic people hung themselves in his jails, basically tortured to death, costing Maricopa County bajillions of dollars. Then he defied a Federal court order to quit torturing them brown fellers, and got convicted of contempt of court for doing so.

So of course the Orange Racist Pussy Grabber pardoned him today.

It’s a twofer. Now people are talking about Trump, rather than about the hurricane. And, Trump lets all the racists, bigots, inbreds, Nazis, Klansmen, right-wing militiamen, rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, muggers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shit-kickers and Southern Baptists know that their God-Emperor Donald the Trump has their back.

Of course, it’s a travesty of justice, and a preview of how Trump intends to deal with the convictions from the Russia scandal, the grand jury for which is still underway. But justice isn’t something that His Fraudulency Donald The Trump ever cared about. He has a life-long history of bigotry against black people, a life-long history of ripping off his contractors, bankers, and anybody else he could get away with ripping off (thus his nickname in New York City banking circles of “Deadbeat Donnie”, which is why he’s so in debt to the Russians), a life-long history of treating women like objects and treating people of color like shit. This is what he does, people. He’s a two-bit con man playing big man in the Oval Office. A two bit con man who has access to nuclear weapons and a pardon pen.

Which is why we are all so, so fucked.

SNORK!. Turned out that one of the councils, the Manufacturing Council, voted to officially disband before Trump’s tweet saying he was disbanding them. And then Trump said “you can’t quit, I’m firing you!”. ROFL.

This White House has become so toxic that even right wing business leaders don’t want to associate with it. And we have 3 1/2 more years of this — maybe 7 1/2 more years, depending on whether Trump manages to get us into a war.

We are so fucked….

Steve Bannon just gave an interview with the liberal magazine American Prospect where he sounds downright reasonable compared to most of the Trumpistas.

Steve. Fucking. Bannon. Well, I gotta hand it to him, he might be a vile repulsive human being, but he’s also not an idiot. He called out the Nazis and Klansmen in Virginia as “losers” — remember, Bannon is one of the guys who designed the alt-right’s de-Nazification program (where they deliberately dump all racist and Nazi symbols), which was intended to make the alt-right “family friendly” even though its core believes are still pure white supremacist. Having all these losers running around waving Nazi flags and giving Nazi salutes must irk the shit out of him, even if his boss doesn’t seem to care.

So anyhow, on North Korea: “There is no military solution.” He points out that Seoul is within artillery distance of a huge mass of North Korean conventional artillery and there’s no effective military action that could be taken without 10 million dead South Koreans (and, incidentally, a huge chunk of our economy going up in smoke — we literally can’t make cell phones without South Korea anymore).

On China: he repeats the protectionist rhetoric that got Trump elected and that a wide swathe on both the left and the right agree with.

And he claims that he’s not getting shoved out of the Trump administration, that in fact he’s marginalizing or bypassing most of his critics there.

What to think about this? I don’t know. But I can come to two conclusions: 1) whatever happens with Steve Bannon, he’s probably the most dangerous man on the far right today, because he’s probably the smartest. And 2) he enjoys burning shit down. He’s damn the torpedoes full speed ahead.

Of course, if he ends up running aground on his own torpedoes, that might be an end that he didn’t foresee….

I swear, I go out of town on vacation, getting some well-earned rest deep in the Sierra Nevada well away from anything resembling the Internet, cellular service, frantic calls from my boss that things aren’t working, and so forth, and what the fuck happens?

Nazis.

Goddamn fucking Nazis.

Even Attorney General Jeff KKK Sessions is appalled and called the attack on anti-racism protesters an act of domestic terrorism.

Meanwhile a 32 year old paralegal, Heather Heyer, is dead and a lot of people injured. And James Alex Fields, Jr., the 20 year old neo-Nazi who slammed his car into the mass of protesters, has been charged with murder. Meanwhile His Fraudulency Donald the Trump was restrained in what he said about the attack, not name-checking neo-Nazis and white supremacists. Because the Orange Racist Pussy Grabber didn’t want to piss off one of his core constituencies, I guess. Because these racist asswipes were chanting “Heil Trump!” and displaying Nazi flags alongside Trump campaign posters as they marched around attacking protesters.

Here’s a hint: If you gotta restrain what you say in order to avoid pissing off fucking NAZIS, you ain’t on the side of what’s right and good.

Just sayin’.

Nazis. goddamn fucking Nazis. Again. Sheesh.
