 Image result for approval 

Before we start herewith is a comprehensive review of Trump's Approval and Disapproval ratings as of this week: linked here___________________

Now for some Trump fun via his existential reality.

In May 2018 the Five38 Blog (Nate Silver) updated its Polling bias tracking polling. Polling bias among a comprehensive group of polling authorities is a worthwhile endeavor. especially for readers who wish to see poling bias in an order of descending bias The higher the bias the higher on the listed sits the polling authority.  the view is available via the lined which follows and a simple click of the bias category heading int he last column of the survey.  The survey is linked here.

We have developed this quick view posts to highlight well known Right-leaning pollsters (Rasmussen) is reporting "Disapproval" of Donald Trump outpacing the Rasmussen "Approval" numbers. The following is an excerpt from a recent Rasmussen publication. 

Rasmussen has consistently reporting Trump's Approval/Disapproval as more equal then a lean towards Approve or Disapprove.

One has to wonder if situations like that which follows also contribute to what has to be major cognitive dissonance via millions who voted for Trump and the major millions who abstained from voting in 2016.

Trump entertaining his minions at his most recent rally.  Apparently, the oozfest was 1.5 hours of rambling nonsense with segments repeated from earlier int he carnival barking. Doesn't this man's wife has a "Be Better" fake campaign? 
If you are concerned about use of the word minions above. Here is the prime example he nut case who Trump unleashed his misdirected attack and one who says he loves Trump and loves bullies. I believe it is accurate to state what follows is aberrant behavior. 


Of course, the bully-lover was appearing on Fox News.

Maybe you find the following a better example of why Trump's approval ratings remain on the underbelly of postie polling, his appearance with forced attendance at to address Shell employees is more poignant. 

Notice the two fellows towards the bottom of the image.  By now we are certain you are aware the employees were told to attend the speech or suffer a loss of pay.  Imagine that?

The Daily Kos offers more regarding the Joseph Goebbels like appearance.

Speaking of Goebbels. I am reminded of that famous photo of one who stood out as a non-conformist. 

Image result for one man dint salute Alas, the beauty of resistance to tyranny.  

Let's close with a reminder of what it lies to be a Trumpette. Of course, we have no idea if the woman in the following video is a Trump supporter. We do, however, feel very comfortable she isn' a regressive or liberal who supports the social Left. Just think, your Right-wing vote lives in the same Venn Diagram as this deplorable.

As Trump's World Turns: Charlottesville, Tucker Carlson, Trump In El Paso



Two years ago today, white supremacists perpetrated mayhem and murder in the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia.  Shortly thereafter Trump (when pressed) commented that the event and the day were shared by 'fine people on both sides". 

Leadership?

True leadership. How does a true leader lead in times of horrific experienced for her/his constituents? The true leader shows empathy, sympathy and offers a personal touch; which could mean much to those who suffer. 

Image may contain: 9 people, people smiling

The Buffoon, narcissistic camera hound and his wife show exactly the core of the current GOP and US conservative mindset. The baby's parents are dead Shot by a right-wing racist who seemed to clone Trump's "invasion" moniker for brown people who are seeking a better life in the United States.  The photo opportunity was yet another example of the existential reality of Trumpism. 

If you have time and respect the sanctity and special elevation of the US Presidency, you have to sit through this MSNBC segment.  The manner of speech is as critical as a presidents judgment. We have almost three years of empirical evidence Trump has zero judgment.  Watch and listen as Chris Hayes shows us the full measure of Trump's inept mental processes (as exemplified via speech). 
A visit over on Fox News finds another evening host who suddenly announced a "vacation." 
Does Fox News management and Ruppert Murdoch so disrespect their viewers they practice disciplinary "vacation" closeting when a host shows the true core values of the organization? Is sending a host on an unplanned "vacation" a mere band-aid and hand-slap? would termination serve a better purpose? Alas, a question for credible media with viewers who might find utter racism and defense of racism a "deplorable act ".

Let's take another look (and listen). 


"Deplorable?"

James Alex Fields, Jr August 12, 2017


And David Duke on August 12, 2017, put it into words.


If you are familiar with professional sports and television broadcast, you know the term "color commentator".  While the use of the term, regarding David Duke's validation and of Trump, also carries a nagging pun (hence "color"), I cannot find a better metaphorical analogy.  

Why should we ask should Fox management even respond with an "Immediate vacation"?  We suspect to slow the trickle of advertisers, more so than an attack of consciousness. 

On the anniversary day of Charlottesville, we find Fox News's Tucker Carlson on immediate vacation and we find an image of Trump and his wife with a baby with deceased via an American terrorist influenced by Trump's incessant oratory and hate speech.
