Profiles in Poltroonery

**** assholes playing the role of “senator” and “former FBI Director” and “Director of National Security” and “Director of the NSA” had run for the exits and called out over their shoulders, “Ask Bob Mueller. It’s in his court now.”

Trump is dirty. He’s guilty of something so bad he fired the director of the FBI trying to keep it covered up. He’s running scared. Trump obviously figured that actually obstructing justice by trying to influence a criminal investigation by the FBI was preferable to having that investigation discover what he is covering up. That prospect scares him to death. There is only one question remaining to be answered, really. What information could be so damaging to Trump that it’s worse than obstruction of justice, a federal crime and an impeachable offense?

There’s something out there having to do with Russians and money and Russians and sex. Money laundering? Illegal loans? Offshore payments on which he hasn’t paid tax? Hot and cold running hookers? Peepee parties? Whatever it is, Trump is afraid of it coming out not only because it will cost him the presidency, it will cost him his identity, his manhood. It will cost him who he is.

“an island in the Pacific....
In a recent Quinnipiac University poll, respondents were asked what word immediately came to mind when they thought of Donald Trump: The No. 1 response was “idiot.” This was followed by “incompetent,” “liar,” “leader,” “unqualified,” and finally, in sixth place, “president.” Superlatives like “great” and a few unprintable descriptives came further down on the list. But let us focus on the first.

In ancient Greek society, an idiotes was a layperson who lacked professional skills. The idiot contributed nothing to public life or the common good. His existence depended on the skill and labor of others; he was a leech sucking the lifeblood from the social body. Related to this, idiocy (from the root idios, “one’s own”) was the state of a private or self-centered person. This contrasted with the status of the public citizen, or polites, such that to be an idiot was to be withdrawn, isolated and selfish, to not participate in the public, political life of the city-state. In Greek society, the condition of idiocy was seen as peculiar and strange (a meaning that is retained in the English word “idiosyncratic”); thus “idiot” was a term of reproach and disdain.

We have a president who neither understands nor respects the basic norms of American democracy. Make no mistake: Donald Trump is a true aberration. There is no figure like him in U.S. history, for which we should be thankful.

Trump’s inexperience is unique; he is the only president never to have served in government or the military. This weakness is exponentially compounded by his ignorance of both policy and process, his lack of curiosity, his inability to focus and his tremendous insecurity. He refuses to acknowledge his shortcomings, let alone come to terms with them; and he desperately craves the kind of sycophantic adulation that George Washington, a genuine hero, pointedly rejected.

Our #FakeHero president is an insult to our Founders

Trump comments on border wall while flying to France on Air Force One.

"One of the things with the wall is you need transparency. You have to be able to see through it. In other words, if you can't see through that wall — so it could be a steel wall with openings, but you have to have openings because you have to see what's on the other side of the wall.
And I'll give you an example. As horrible as it sounds, when they throw the large sacks of drugs over, and if you have people on the other side of the wall, you don't see them -- they hit you on the head with 60 pounds of stuff? It's over. As cray as that sounds, you need transparency through that wall. But we have some incredible designs."

Them Mexicans are some strong mofo's to be able to toss a 60 pound bag of drugs over a 40 foot wall.

President Trump’s first six months: The fact-check tally

Trump, the most fact-challenged politician that The Fact Checker has ever encountered.

Trump also has a disturbing habit of taking credit for events or business decisions that happened before he took the oath of office — or had even been elected.

Trump and Republicans treat their voters like morons

But their strongest motivation right now is fear, fear of the voters they regard as too dim-witted to be able to make a rational judgment about the most consequential policy question one can imagine.

Trump Is Woody Allen Without the Humor

The president’s primary problem as a leader is not that he is impetuous, brash or naive. It’s not that he is inexperienced, crude, an outsider. It is that he is weak and sniveling.

He’s not strong and self-controlled, not cool and tough, not low-key and determined; he’s whiny, weepy and self-pitying. He throws himself, sobbing, on the body politic. He’s a drama queen.

Half the president’s tweets show utter weakness. They are plaintive, shrill little cries, usually just after dawn. “It’s very sad that Republicans, even some that were carried over the line on my back, do very little to protect their president.” The brutes.

His public brutalizing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions isn’t strong, cool and deadly; it’s limp, lame and blubbery.

The truth, six months in, is that he is not presidential and is not getting it done. His mad, blubbery petulance isn’t working for him but against him. If he were presidential he’d be getting it done—building momentum, gaining support. He’d be over 50%, not under 40%. He’d have health care, and more.

Meanwhile the whole world is watching, a world that contains predators. How could they not be seeing this weakness, confusion and chaos and thinking it’s a good time to cause some trouble?

Trump gets a folder full of positive news about himself twice a day

... the folders are filled with screenshots of positive cable news chyrons (those lower-third headlines and crawls), admiring tweets, transcripts of fawning TV interviews, praise-filled news stories, and sometimes just pictures of Trump on TV looking powerful.

Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Possibly the best part of this wonderful, hilarious, deeply terrifying story is that they have to do it twice a day. They can't just pop in each morning with a collection of news clippings that paint Donald in a positive light—they have to go in twice, because just once a day isn't enough. And augment it with tweets praising him. And printed-out pictures of himself.

Polish: Trumpczyk is defined as “huge or enormous,” as in ‘The crowds for the inauguration were trumpczyk!’”

Vietnamese: In this Southeast Asian language, trumpyen denotes “rust caused by oxidation and moisture” or “rust that forms on a democracy when it is not used enough or is neglected.”

Russian: The playful word trumpovski means “puppet” or “pawn” in Russian. Example: “With an incriminating videotape in his possession, the brilliant puppet master was able to fully control the empty-headed trumpovski.”

Arabic: Trumpadi is a form of rebuke or way of scolding others, especially employees, and can be translated as “You’re fired!”

German: The Germans use the president’s original surname, drumpf, when referring to racism or someone who is racist, as in “Good thing the island nation is not lead by a drumpf, otherwise minorities would be in big trouble.”

Turkish: A 19th century addition to the language, the word trumpogan is used to denote “a weird or offbeat hairstyle” as in, “With the large front shelf, the rakish comb over, and those slicked back sides, the man created his own unique trumpogan.”

Why Are Neo-Nazis on Twitter So Scared of Being Called Neo-Nazis?

But after the streets were cleared, far right thugs who participated in the demonstration seemed only concerned with one thing: Not being called Nazis.

... high-profile people from the protests have been clutching their pearls on social media whenever people have dared called them Nazis.

If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.
---President Lyndon Baines Johnson

We have a bigoted billionaire-cum-president who has done precious little for the white working class whose resentment fueled his rise. They have emptied their ethical and economic pockets in support of him even though he turned his back on them the moment he entered the Oval Office. The only remnant of his leadership they have to hold on to is the folklore of white nationalist sentiment, and xenophobic passion, that offer them psychic comfort if little financial stability.

Do you know where your wallet is Todd?
