The Daily GOP Ignominious: Trump "The Shame"

Image result for trump shameless The shame!

How about a quick video laced reminder of exactly what the nation placed in the White House. While Trump is doing all he can to keep his Russia/Putin troubles out of the media, his desperation is only surpassed by the level of contempt he imparts to rational Americans.

Let's start with a quick exhibition of why he should seriously avoid issues which require any level of cognitive reliance on reality.  

ObamaCare for 17 years?  Really.

Seventeen years?

Now for the nascent White House communications chief who should more have the title of Chief Derriere Cleaner

Scaramucci shows extraordinary skills at derriere cleansing.

Football through a tire?

Trump continues his strong preference for entertaining crowds. Why not; he is the supreme carnival barker shelling out pure lies to get you to purchase a ticket to go in the carnival tent. Ever notice after you realize you have been ripped-off and the freak in the tent is laden with false props and makeup and isn't a real Snake woman, you run back outside to retrieve your money...and he is gone. Yes, the life of the carnival barker.

In Ohio and clear signs of a diseased mind selling snake oil.

While among the horde of supporters, Trump declared himself the most presidential of presidents in US History (other than Abe Lincoln).

The man has to be a psychiatrist and psychologist dream case.  

If a person has to go before a supportive audience and declares himself
best of all, it shows deep rooted inadequacy with a need for support for sycophants.

After a night of what might have included a few minutes of sleep, what does the erratic one do?  He jumps on his cell phone and tweets out an anti LGBTQ reversal of Barack Obama's "right to serve openly policy."   

How about the sudden LGBTQ shift. I suggest it is a smokescreen to distract from his current sets of Administration killing woes.

The man is as sad a carnival barker as we have witnessed over the course of our lives.

Thank you to the LGBT community! I will fight for you while Hillary brings in more people that will threaten your freedoms and beliefs.

"Hillary Clinton can never claim to be a friend of the gay community as long as she continues to support immigration policies that bring Islamic extremists into our country and who suppress women, gays and anyone else who doesn't share their views or values," Trump said, criticizing Clinton's call for the U.S. to accept more Syrian refugees. 
"She can't have it both ways. She can't claim to be supportive of these communities while trying to increase the number of people coming in who want to oppress these same communities," he added. 
Clinton is widely supported by the LGBT community and supports policies that would expand civil rights protections. She expressed solidarity with the community during a speech Monday in Cleveland. 
"I want to say this to all the LGBT people grieving today in Florida and across our country," she said. "You have millions of allies who will always have your back. And I am one of them."

Crooks & Liars and what I call he didn't go there."

If you can overlook the shame, it really doesn't bode well for your psyche Celebrity or not, Trump has mental issues.

LGBT Rights Organizations Open Letter In Support Of Saturday's March

Re-blog from Commondreams Dot Org. We are re-blogging the following commitment Open Letter for this Saturday's 50th Anniversary (commemoration) March on Washington DC.  Our excitement is just about boiling over.  Actually, we find evidence the Open Letter was published as early as mid-July.  In any case, when progressive, liberal, civil right and human rights organizations band together no amount of authoritarianism from the Right can win out.

LGBT Rights Organizations Issue Open Letter in Support of 50th Anniversary of March on Washington

WASHINGTON - August 19 - A coalition of national lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights organizations, led the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, today issued the following open letter:
An Open Letter in Support of 50th Anniversary of March on Washington
Over the past year, our community has celebrated tremendous wins in the fight for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality and justice.
We have collectively cheered the first ever Senate committee markup of an inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), the Social Security Administration’s modernization of its gender marker policy, and U.S. Supreme Court wins on marriage equality in the Windsor and Perry rulings. But we remain frustrated that ENDA is still not the law of the land and we’re angered and deeply disappointed with the Court’s decision to turn back critical parts of the historic Voting Rights Act in Shelby.
We must channel this frustration and disappointment into action to tackle employment discrimination, voter suppression tactics, immigration reform and racial profiling, to name only a few.
This month we have an opportunity to bring the combined energy from our victories to a major gathering that will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs & Freedom. History was made that day 50 years ago when thousands came to Washington, D.C. to lift up their voices in support of civil rights, employment protection and an end to racial segregation in our nation’s schools. On August 24, 2013, we will rededicate ourselves to that dream of equality and justice.
It has been over 40 years since Stonewall and the birth of the modern LGBTQ rights movement. As national, state and local LGBTQ organizations, we know that while there have been many advancements over the last four decades since Stonewall and the five decades since the 1963 March, there is still much more work to be done. We are proud to commemorate the 1963 March and, once again, come together and collectively take action to “Realize the Dream.”
At a time when the nation still does not have clear federal laws barring discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, we still need to step up and be visible. We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to find and keep a job in a safe work environment with a living wage regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity and expression. We also believe that all members of our community, whether they are seniors, middle-aged or youth, deserve to be safe from violence, harassment, exploitation and racial profiling when they are at home, school, work, or in any other public places. As LGBTQ people, we believe that quality health care should be accessible, affordable and culturally competent. We believe that the 11 million undocumented immigrants, including at least 267,000 undocumented LGBT people living in this country, should have a real pathway to citizenship and people from all backgrounds should be able to stay with their families. We believe these are issues that cut across all lines of gender, race and ethnicity, gender identity and sexual orientation, ability and immigration status. It’s time to join forces and demonstrate our collective power.
Take Action
Working together, this rally and mobilization is an opportunity to lift up the voices of LGBT people as part of a broad progressive agenda for social and economic justice. Please join us on Saturday, August 24, 2013, at 8 AM – 3 PM in Washington, D.C. at the DC War Memorial at 900 Independence Ave, SW, Washington, DC 20245. (The Memorial is located across Independence Ave. from the Martin Luther King Memorial), as we come together in support of freedom and justice!
