Donald Trump, new U.S. monarch, being sued…again

Donald John is being sued over his immigration order by the Committee on American-Islamic Relations in a Virginia federal court on Monday. Suppose to be the biggest one yet, but that doesn’t bother America’s newly anointed potentate. He’s working on a new reality show for TV for when he leaves the White House. It’s called, ‘How to Sue a Billionaire…on Twitter.’

Steve Bannon will only add to more chaos

The new Bobbsey twins

The lack of decision-making skills on the part of Donald John is almost as laughable as his lack of knowledge about what he is doing as the new President of the United States. The Chicago Tribune said during the 2016 campaign, “It is almost impossible to underestimate his knowledge about issues, including the ones he talks most about in his campaign.” It has gotten no better, only worse. So what does the new inept President do? He selects a Cabinet that knows almost as little as he does.  But the height of his stupid decision-making process is his choice of Steve Bannon, who appears to be against everything but himself. What’s worse, “… the president decided to give a permanent seat at the National Security Council table to his chief strategist and senior counselor, Stephen Bannon.”

Trump lack of judgment frightening

A man without a plan, only bullshit

In his first week in office, Donald John has shown no organizational skills in the government-wide decision-making process. That, in itself, is scary enough, but this assessment is even more alarming.

“…since the election, there is reason to believe that his White House is going to be a place of unusual uncertainty, perhaps even chaos, as a president who has no idea what he is doing is served by people who have no idea what their boss wants.”

Donald John has elected to almost ignore the “Presidential Daily Brief, the intelligence report the president gets every day to apprise him of threats to the United States.” Such a comforting thought, this maniac sitting in the Oval Office quietly planning his next business move while missiles fly from God knows what country.

Trump favors his business interests in travel ban

Psst, can I get in on the deal?
He might call it coincidence but I call it strategic planning for Donald John’s investments in Turkey. The country was left out of the travel bans even after it has “…faced several terrorist attacks in recent months. On Wednesday, the State Department updated a travel warning for Americans visiting Turkey.” And why would he exclude Turkey? Because of the two luxury towers he has licensed his name to in Istanbul, plus the fact a Turkish company “…manufactures a line of Trump-branded home furnishings.”

Con artist of the century strikes again. Read more…

Canada shows up Trump’s lack of compassion

Canada PM Justin Trudeau

Canada’s Trudeau has just announced that his country will welcome rejected U.S. refugees. Since more than 75% of Canada’s exports go to the U.S., Trudeau doesn’t want to upset Donald John, but he is making it clear that his country will not take the bigoted attitude as his neighbors to the south.

“Trudeau tweeted Saturday ‘To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada.’”

If you want an hour-by-hour illustration of how Donald John has screwed up the transportation industry, go here.

And this is just one country. 

Donald Trump destroys Brits confidence in U.S.

Just prior to Prime Minister Theresa May’s trip to meet Donald John in the White House, British lawmakers accused the PM of “groveling” before the U.S. President. It’s all a part of the people of Great Britain rethinking their affections for Americans. As an example:

A Pew Research Center poll from early 2016 found that 85 percent of Britons had no confidence in Trump doing the right thing in global relations, while 12 percent said they had confidence.

A Gallup International poll conducted in September found that if British citizens could vote in the U.S. election, 64 percent would have chosen Trump’s rival, Hillary Clinton. 15 percent said they would have voted for Trump.

Another poll conducted for the Independent, this time by BMG Research, shortly after the election, 58 percent of Britons said that America’s global reputation would suffer after Trump’s win.

Can America afford Donald Trump’s ego

Contrary to belief, Sigmund Freud did not employ the use of the term ego (a person’s sense of self-esteem or self-importance) or id (the part of the mind in which innate instinctive impulses and primary processes are manifest). He had other references, unimportant to this post. They both seem to date back to the time of Nietzsche but the reason for bringing any of this up is to point out the fact that Donald John’s ego is completely out of control and his id is that of a lunatic. Just take a look at the following from Ashley Parker of the Washington Post:

“Even with British Prime Minister Theresa May standing at the lectern just to his right Friday, the new president used his first joint news conference with a world leader to underscore that while his campaign message may have been ‘America first,’ his actual guiding philosophy is more ‘Trump first.’”

When was the last ego maniac to run this country? 

Donald Trump’s war with truthful media

They say truth hurts but in Donald John’s case it is a wound that is festering to the extent that he can’t attend to the business of this country…the reason for which he was apparently elected. The comparison of his much smaller Inauguration crowd size compared to Barack Obama’s in 2009 is just the latest. It’s all staged by Steve Bannon who, along with Kellyanne Conway, have now given us “alternative facts.” But the media just isn’t buying it.

Obama: Tied for 1st place in role of modern presidents

President Barack Obama is in a tie with former President Ronald Reagan now but will eventually surpass him in the role of greatest American Presidents. Obama has surged in the past few years, as Reagan has lost five points. This compared to Obama’s nemesis, Mitch McConnell, who has been voted most unpopular U.S. Senator, plainly illustrating the lack of class in the latter. 

Palin exit way too overdue

If only to get rid of that screeching voice, her departure is a blessing. But there’s more. Imagine her PAC donors are pissed that only 12% of contributions went to party candidates, the express purpose of the PAC. In the 2016 election cycle, Palin’s Sarah PAC spent $830,000 on consultants and just $82,500 in donations to other candidates. Also, the PAC spent $168,000 on travel and lodging expenses during the 2016 election — double what it donated to candidates. Palin’s self-aggrandizement at its best.
