Trump Lied To Get On The Forbes 400 List

Image result for forbes 400

35 plus years ago but an indication of character 

Since the nation doesn't seem to care much about Trump's pathological lying, we shouldn't be surprised the extent to which he has lead a life very much like the information via the links and graphics below.

Posted in a TPI post earlier the week

(If you do not wish to read via the links, certainly take a close look at the Tampa Bay Times, Politifact, link).

The New York Times (June 2017)

Opinion | President Trump's Lies, the Definitive List - The New York ...

The Tampa Bay Times (Politifact)

The Washington Post

As of yesterday or this morning, a former Forbes reporter is telling a story (with video) about how Trump adorned his telephone alter-ego to misrepresent his wealth to gain mention and entry into the Forbes 400 Wealthiest List.

While Trump's rationalizers and CNN contributors (Trump backers) are speaking about not believing the tape reported in the following segment, give it a good listen. It is also critical to know Trump has actually bragged about adopting alter-ego personalities: A, B, C 

Since we now live in an age when an expectation of decency and honesty are not traits necessary to sit in the Oval Office, the question has to be addressed: "When will enough about Trump's lies be enough." 

For rational Americans who are not part of the 80% of Republicans who support Trump, the answer is fleeting and becoming something of a non-fulling reality. For those who support Trump, it is amazing the level and scope of lies you will ignore as Trump takes the nation to the depths of a bottomless swamp.

As Trump's World Turns (Firings, Video & Reminders)

Time For As Trump's World Turns

Democratic consultant and strategist, Keith Boykin, closely monitors the daily manifestations of Donald Trump. The following tweet exemplifies the depths of shame Trump has imbued in the US presidency. Can you imagine Barack Obama referring to anyone in government as having a low Intelligence Quotient (IQ)? And the criticism from Trump comes from a person who shows he is of limited mental acuity and he does so on a daily basis.

Donald Trump calls black Congresswoman Maxine Waters "a very low IQ individual."

That's normal, right?
— Keith Boykin (@keithboykin) March 11, 2018

Speaking of the most guttural of utterances form a person who occupies the Oval Office,; watch Trump referred to an NBC News show host a disparaging name which actually disparages the host's mother.

Imagine the laughter and smiling faces via the predominate high-end Baby Boomer white audience. How disgusting the level f rational deprivation from conservatives who support Trump. 

Let's move further into the national abyss.

What follows is the epitome of null leadership in a position which should have impeccable leadership.

Betsy DeVos made billions administering AMWAY, along with her husband. She was a significant Trump financial contributor and (somehow) received an appointment to head Trump's Department of Education. The appointment received Senate confirmation by the slightest of margins: one vote. and she has served in a manner befitting the narrow confirmation vote.

Devos is a very wealthy lost soul.  Before the following video snippet, it is critical to note she has been in her position for over one year. 

Imagine that.  I offer what you observed is an indication of the caliber of person Trump places in key national positions.  

Speaking of key positions. Tillerson..." You're Fired."

Trump's Sec'y of State essentially fired via Twitter.  It seems Tillerson was warned of the pending firing and cut short his trip to Africa.  Yet, I will wager he didn't suspect his demise would come as unceremoniously as via Twitter.


It appears Trump's null "personal assistant" was escorted from the White House yesterday.  Escorted from the White House like Omarosa?  The Wall Street Journal Reports:

Trump’s longtime personal assistant, John McEntee, is fired for unspecified security issue via @WSJ
It appears Rachel Maddow's Trump Departure Board is going to need a bigger room (set).

We will soon revisit.. As Trump's World Turns.

Norway Vs Brown Countries; A Supremacist Dream (VIDEO)

Image result for racism

During a late week Oval Office discussion of a US immigration and related legal documents and laws, Trump is reported to have gone, pure racist.

Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” 
“Why do we need more Haitians?” Trump is reported to have said, “Take them out.”
Trump's preference immigrants would be from "countries like Norway." 

Yes, of course, the Norwegian leader has just completed a visit with Trump.  Nonetheless, are his mental capacity so derided and shallow he couldn't find a better way to feed his base? 

Image may contain: text

Make no mistake, Trump's words were based on a deep inner core of racism and yes, the words have exhilarated white supremacists.

The "go to" website for white supremacist, The Daily Stormer, is celebrating Trump's comments. 
"This is encouraging and refreshing, as it indicates Trump is more or less on the same page as us with regards to race and immigration."

If you did not visit the website, do so. Caution, you will find every reason many Americans find the website abhorrent and an indication of the cesspool nature of racism, white supremacy et al.

"Shithole Countries" Part II (VIDEO)

Image result for shithole countries

Before you start this piece, recognize a couple of important items. First, it is a piece developed via the use of many videos from CNN and MSNBC. If you are averse to our choice of construction on the piece, avoid the piece. We also offer a talking point alert: You will see an hearing consistent rationalizing of Trump's racist remarks shrouded in a pathetic "economic" argument. The very same argument offered up by some in media during the 2016 primaries and General Election campaign as Trump entertained millions across the nation who swelter in racism and hatred from the moment they awake through their late-night-viewing of Sean Hannity. 

Africa, Haiti and other “shithole countries.” Donald J. Trump, January 11, 2018

Africa, Haiti and other “shithole countries.”
“Why do we want all these people from ‘shithole countries’ coming here?” Trump told a bipartisan group of senators in the Oval Office, according to CNN.
The president’s comment was made during a meeting with six senators hoping to come to a compromise on immigration.

After Sen. Dick Durbin proposed to end the visa lottery in exchange for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for countries like El Salvador, Trump reportedly interrupted him when Durbin got to Haiti.
Trump went on to ask why the US would want more people from Haiti and African countries, rather than countries like Norway. The president also asked if Haiti could be left out of the plan, reports the New York Times, “Why do we want people from Haiti here?”

Anderson Cooper on Haiti

Watch as a true American speaks about his first-hand knowledge and sentiment for the country of Haiti.

An all-out racist!

The segment of the night: Don Lemon's CNN Tonight, panel. Of course, we know the segments on CNN run a little long based on network management's broadcast model (panel point-counterpoint scraps), we simply must show the ridiculousness of Trump surrogates using talking points apparently developed in anticipation of reaction to Trump's racism and vulgar language. The comments from the surrogate were echoed on each cable network which ran minutes regarding Trump's racism.

CNN's Don Lemon devoted a full five-minutes addressing people who voted for Trump.  Video via the Raw Story.

Crooks & Liars published a piece regarding the mother of all panels from last night's cable news.

Before the Crooks & Liars piece take one minute of this ten-minute segment to view how racists promulgate their messaging. The first minute led to Don Lemon cutting the racist Trump surrogate out of the segment. He was brought back later in the segment. And, therein lies where Crooks & Liars picked up the video.

GOP Congressionals Calling It Quits

The 2016 General election resulted in the election of Donald J. Trump to the US Presidency as the 45th a cast of great, less than great and horrific presidents. As 11 months in the Oval Office have passed, it is clear Trump will take his pace in the archived cast of US Presidents as the bottom dweller.

His status as the worse president in US history was foretold for those who are serious about life int he nation as we move into the 21st Century. His performance also wouldn't surprise those who voted for the TV reality show real estate businessman based on their love of Trump and celebrity sycophancy.  They are getting exactly what they wanted entertainment of the worse order.  From daily lies (totaling over 2,000 via the New York Times) through many inattentive public ramblings, through total disregard for campaign lies replete with flip-flops and evidence of in your face campaign lying, Trump is carving US History like non-other. 

Along with Approval Ratings as historic lows, Trump is also shepherding GOP congressional representative decision to forsake their seats at a record pace.

The list of Republicans who have declared hey will not compete for their current seats as we move towards the fall Mid-term elections follows. One member responded in the affirmative to a CNN host's question regarding his decision to not seek re-election including consideration of Donald Trump.
