Well, Trumpies, what did you expect? Did you expect him to keep his campaign promises? To provide GREAT healthcare at a fraction of the cost? To “take care of everyone”? To stop lying for an hour or so? Here’s his budget, and his own supporters get screwed the worst.

How stupid is he? Don’t answer that. He’s too dumb to “know what he doesn’t know”. He’s too dumb to listen to his daily briefings because he thinks he knows it all. His need to be a big shot has apparently led him to kiss up to RUSSIAN SPIES INVITED TO THE WHITE HOUSE AT THE BEHEST OF V PUTIN, while the American press cooled their heels outside. This guy needs to be gone, yesterday. He’s 71 years old and has never been part of a team, has never been accountable.
The pace of the outrages is more than anyone can keep up with. I have seventeen stories- all important- that I just collected since yesterday..THIS IS PART OF THE RUSSIAN PLOT. They mean to destabilize our democracy, which is a lot more dangerous- and easier-than stealing votes.
I’ve included a few links. Make time to read them if you can. These are parlous times. We have a President who is treating the US Government as his own piggy bank and is taking his dreadful family on a jaunt to Europe, at your expense. Will he have enough sense to STFU during this trip? Let’s hope so. And may I add that the $99 I paid for a WAPO subscription has more than paid for itself.
Some recent highlights:

And I’m exhausted. As Dan Rather used to say during Watergate, “Courage!”
I’ve been defending George Will for years. He’s an honest conservative- a rare breed- but even I was surprised when he resigned from the GOP a few months ago. This Washington Post piece on Trump’s mental state is a must-read.
The whole piece is HERE.
Having fired the hapless James Comey from the Directorship of the FBI, in the most cowardly way possible, our no-class President is trying to distract you again. His reasons for firing Comey are bogus , or perhaps the right term is specious. He’s trying to focus attention away from the fact, now public, that he knew for almost three weeks that Mike Flynn was a foreign agent before getting him out of the White House. Don has bought himself an express ticket to Special Prosecutor Land. Just don’t let him distract you.
Keep your eye on the ball, folks.
Our thin-skinned and ungracious President can’t handle the White House Press Corps. Is his mean-spirited approach going to serve him well dealing with the complex world of 2017? Probably not. Meanwhile, young Hasan Minhaj killed.
The video – and transcript-is HERE.
The unhinged man-child who is currently our President is a constant embarrassment as the extent of his ignorance and inexperience becomes ever more clear. He has no philosophy, no values and no curiosity. It took China’s Xi a whole ten minutes on the phone to talk Trump out of the idea that China would be able to “help” with North Korea. The steady diet of scandal, nepotism, and incompetence goes on and on. Is all this just a plot to prepare us for the advent of President Pence?

Is the daily parade of lies and incompetence emanating from the White House starting to bore you ? Me too. Here’s a change of pace: a thought-provoking piece from The Atlantic. Read the whole thing HERE.
A veteran intelligence analyst warns in Salon that Trump will be impeached. Can’t happen soon enough. This guy has been making regular appearances on MSNBC and his credentials are impeccable.

After the election, I was seriously depressed. I thought I would have nothing but struggles to look forward to for the next four years. I thought it was my god-given obligation to keep sharing and blogging about our incompetent President, but I’m so relieved. Everyone else is doing it too! The Times-Standard letters reflect the widespread disgust and the President’s unhinged behavior will bring him down, just as Nixon was brought down by his own character defects. Nixon’s problem- one of them- was booze, Trump’s is insanity and ignorance.
I’m really looking forward to seeing how he wiggles his way out of his pre-dawn tweets. Meanwhile, some of the best commentary is coming from George Packer at the New Yorker. In his piece, Official Duties, he discusses the 25th Amendment- you know, the one that says you can dump a President who goes nuts.

I don’t know how I would survive the Age of Trump if I had to live in a more “normal ” environment. I know two people who voted for Trump and they both live on the East Coast, so I don’t see them often. Here, I can go everywhere knowing I will seldom or ever be reminded of the sordid mess gripping our nation. We have an orange -haired asshole screeching that Putin is our friend. We have wierdo Steve Bannon displacing sober and intelligent military representatives on the national security council and announcing that the sees his role as “deconstructing ” the government, or whichever part of the government he thinks he can do without that particular day. And we have that same orange -haired asshole bleating that the newspapers and TV etc are WRONG- WRONG- and that only HE can be believed. Someone estimated he told 1300+lies during the past month. That sounds about right. HERE‘s another account of just a few days in February.
Trump, it’s clear, is not a traitor. The most undereducated man to ever occupy the White House doesn’t have the analytical skills to commit treason ; he’d need a lot of help. His BA in Real Estate from Wharton didn’t teach him critical thinking or even punctuation . There are other ways to end a sentence besides the exclamation point. Sad! Nor apparently did he learn to think on his feet. He favors Twitter because he can just shoot his BS without fearing contradiction but is too chicken to face the White House Correspondents Dinner. His cowardice will be marveled at by future generations. But thin-skilled Don the Con is too chicken to show up. JFK, Obama, both the Bushes showed up but not our little flower Don. I don’t think he’ll be missed. The man has NO sense of humor, a dreadful deficiency for so someone in power. He’s too insecure.
I didn’t make it to Jared’s town hall on Thursday. I have the luxury o f knowing that my reps- and that includes Mike McGuire and Jim Woods also- will not disgrace me. God, I love living up here in the bubble.
