The Madness of Comrade Trump

NOTE:   Trump's daughter, Tiffany, is registered to vote in two states. Up until today, Trump's chief strategist, Paul Bannon, was registered to vote in two states. Trump cabinet nominee, Steven Mnuchin, is registered to vote in two states. Let the investigation of voter fraud begin by investigating Tiffany, Bannon, and Mnuchin! If they voted for trump, was it LEGAL??? 

It's looking increasingly clear to the world that trump is stark raving mad.

Donald Trump Promises Investigation Into ‘Illegal’ Voting He Made Up 

 There’s absolutely no evidence of widespread voter fraud.

Just wondering.  Has anyone at the WH checked the color of Trump's pee? 

In the bio-pic, The Madness of King George III, the monarch experienced bouts of insanity that some historians say were attributable to prophyria, which supposedly changed the color of the king's urine to blue.

It's speculation, I know, but we're wondering about Comrade Trump's erratic behavior and his obsessive perseveration about the size of the inauguration day crowds and his loss of the popular vote to Hillary Clinton. Comrade Trump worries a lot about the size of things. Now he's calling for an investigation into something that didn't happen. Will we be subjected to an Alternative Facts Congressional Hearing? 

According to Com.Trump's press secretary, the preznit haz a sad because the press is asking him hard questions. Com.Trump is "demoralized" because of this. Here's a thought. In the past, monarchs have had fools to cheer them and keep them amused when things didn't go their way. There are plenty of candidates for this special position to Comrade Trump.  Suggestions:  Louis Gohmert?  Michele Bachmann? Sean Hannity?

Also, we've seen that Comrade Trump is not a details guy, so we marvel at the dozens of executive orders he's signing, not to mention the gag rules he's put in place on federal agencies he knows nothing about. How did he become so knowledgeable on such matters in such a short period of time? Could it be that others are shoving these executive orders in front of him for signature? Reports are that Com.Trump has signed more executive orders in his first few days as preznit than President Obama did in 8 years.

Is Comrade Trump's presidency a Regency Presidency?  Are the inmates running what's evidently this Presidential Asylum?

Trump has a clear, consistent policy on climate change: don't let anyone talk about it and it didn't happen.

Shawn Hannity, Ministry of Trumpspeak?

Trump's thin skin has always been his weakness -- he is incapable of focusing on bigger issues while embroiled in pointless twitter battles or feuds with anyone he feels threatened by. So the more he is delegitimized, mocked and insulted, the less time he is going to spend laying waste to the country and the environment. The nastier the fights Trump gets involved in, the more likely he is to make a major mistake. While it shouldn't normally be a goal to make the president do his job badly, when you have someone committed to rolling back women's rights, dismantling environmental protection, lying through his teeth and trampling all over the constitution, it is more than a noble goal -- it is a civic duty.

Couldn't agree with you more, Tom!

From PM Carpenter:

"There is no benign explanation for President Trump’s false assertion that millions of people voted illegally in the last election. It is either a deliberate attempt to undermine faith in the democratic process, an exhortation to those who favor new restrictions on access to the ballot box or the worrisome trait of someone with immense power willing to make wild statements without any credible evidence….

Trump is now striking at the foundation of a democratic society. This is yet another example of Trump being willing to cast doubt on information, individuals or institutions that he believes threaten his legitimacy, challenge his authority or question his actions.

Balz's straight-news piece continues:

Trump is chipping away at a shared public confidence in a system that is fundamental to a representative government for no apparent reason other than that he’s bothered by the fact that, although duly elected and now in the White House, he lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton by almost 3 million votes.

And it concludes:

The president has preferred his own version of what happened in November in the popular vote, even if that damages the very system of government atop which he now sits.

Now tell me again, my fellow lefties, that no fundamental transformation in American journalism is taking place. If the Beltway's Dan Balz is undergoing one, then something seismic is indeed in the works."

Democrats should support this investigation... as long as it includes investigating voter suppression. And they should insist that (after investigating) action is taken to correct whatever problems are found.

Kevin Robbins said...

I'm surprised they haven't commandeered Trump's phone yet to stop the tweeting. Though, maybe the handlers have. That seems to have slowed down. Then they can just wheel him out to sign legislation and read the teleprompter.

Ducky's here said...

The "illegal voters investigation" is just a diversion to grease the skids for further Goop voter suppression.

He had quite a productive couple days:

1. Bringing back black ops sites and waterboarding although accomplished nothing and made us look like barbarians.

2. He's going to build the wall (yeah right). We pick up the tab right now but Mexico will pay in the future.

3. Gave the green light to Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipeline.

Just how all this "makes America great" escapes me.

Marc McKenzie said...

Well, looks like we dodged a bullet because that Hillary, boy, her emails!!

But in all seriousness....who did NOT see this coming? Oh, wait--many in the media, the clueless Trump supporters, and the supporters of Jill Stein and Sanders who still clung to the idea that Hillary Clinton would be worse than Trump.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Marc, Trump shows America and the world every day that he is unfit to be president. Whether one liked or disliked Hillary, we know she would have been dignified and not embarrass us in front of the world.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Ducky, We're now a Russian satellite country. It didn't take long for President 37% to do that.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Kevin, I'm all for allowing President 37% to continue to tweet so we and the world can see what a jerk he is.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Dervish, with the Goopers in charge of everything, that will never happen. They're not interested in truth, just power.

Tom said...

This is interesting, but if he "finds" anything, it's going to be fake news. If you take a minute to think about it, why would he poke the grizzly, so to speak, when he "won" Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin by such tiny margins?

Dave Miller said...

If there was actually voter fraud, instead of laziness in removing dead people and changed addresses from the rolls, then should we expect federal charges for every Sec State who certified the state elections?

Not a one of them found any significant fraud and all have sworn, under penalty of law, that the elections were free and fair.

What does Trump know that not one Sec State, Dem or Republican knows?

In the words of Bugs Bunny... "What a ta ra ra Goon de ā!

Shaw Kenawe said...

Dave, we found out today that Trump's daughter Tiffany, trump's advisor, Bannon, and one of Trump's cabinet nominees, Mnuchin all were registered to vote in two states.

Personally, I think Trump is stark, raving mad.

Jerry Critter said...

How many of us have removed ourselves from the voter rolls when moving to another state? How many of us have removed a relative from rage voter rolls when they have died? Oh, and you know what? It is not illegal to be registered in more than one state or registered while dead.
