Trumpism: Clips, Lack Of Facts, Porn Stars (Elections Matter)

The following won't be accompanied by paragraph after paragraph of my thoughts and opinions. Let's take a few minutes to see how others are viewing and reacting to Trumpism.

If you have completed your US 2017 tax return and itemized deductions you know your tax experience was different than last year.  Your last deduction or two if you are over age 65!   

Well, I am guessing if you are not age 65 or higher, you are feeling a bit o tax relief.  Well, Trump and Ryan are hitting you from another age. How about gas prices highest in three years.  MSN dot com link.
Who is in charge?

Without the biographical background let's take a look at Trump's cabinet as of February 2017.

As of March 22. 2018, a list of former Trump staffers and cabinet looks like this:

Maddow's March 18: a segment with fewer names on the list: (9:36 minutes...a bit long)

The Canadian Cabinet picture was for purpose of analogy against the backgrounds of Trump's cabinet.  Other matters related to Trump's utter failure to build a good and "the best" cabinet appointments stands for additional scrutiny and your interpretation.

Donald Trump falsely says James Comey memos disprove collusion, obstruction

Trump"James Comey Memos just out and show clearly that there was NO COLLUSION and NO OBSTRUCTION"

Your Golfing President

An unusal presidential reality
Imagine a time in US history when sex workers sex actresses or hookers occupied so much of our current events and news. 

Hookers? Really?

We are sure tomorrow will bring more of the same.

Medicaid: A GOP Target

If you read the TPI on a regular basis you are aware of our position (the humane position) on Medicaid and Medicare.  The Human Services program may not exist as a life-sustaining from which you derive benefits, but it is a program which offers quality of life opportunities for millions.  

As you view what follows, see if you can actually avoid the reality of the GOP (and their nascent leader: Trump) as purveyors of death panel ideology leading got killing policy.  We start with a few graphics for quick delivery of information to the rational person.

Our ending video segment is a piece from last night's The Last Word. Ari Melber filled in for Lawrence O'Donnell. Melber was literally brought to tears as he sat listening to one American who's quality of life (and maybe his actual life) is enhanced via Medicaid.

Michael Phillips, who has spinal muscular atrophy and whose life literally depends on Medicaid, shares his fears about what Medicaid cuts could mean for his care:

Watch the remarkable full interview with Ari Melber:

The GOP Brand is showing its colors as a critical tool for Americans top .01% (ers) who will derive major financial benefits via healthcare laws signed by Trump. VOX linked.

If you have a bit more time, MSNBC's Joy Ann Reid ran a segment this morning which totally remedies the essence of the GOP.
