As Trump's World Turns: Foiled Again... Applause Or Lack Thereof

Applause Or Lack Thereof? A Rhetorical Question 

Your White House strikes again.  But, modern-day technology lays the strike to the realm of more lies, thus...

During the 2019 Munich Security Conference in Munich, Germany, Mike Pence took to the podium with standard speaking decorum..and ran immediately up against a buzz saw of quiet (lack of applause) at a point where applause was not only protocol it was an expectation.

If you follow this link and peruse the text you will find 11 parenthetic use of the word "Applause" (i.e, Applause).   

Herewith is a specific example of how the White House and Donald Trump deal with matters of truth: They avoid it altogether.   After a few days of widely publicized video of Pence addressing ..... with one well-defined lack of applause, the White House posted an utter lie.
...It’s an honor to be here with them and with Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. Madam Speaker, my greetings to you.  (Applause.)  We’re grateful for Senator Graham’s leadership of this delegation and grateful for the strong bipartisan American presence represented here.  To them and to all of you, it’s my great honor to speak to you today, on behalf of a champion of freedom and a champion of a strong national defense, the 45th President of the United States of America, President Donald Trump.  (Applause.)
Actual video highlights the lie.

An utter lie from the Whtie House communications cabal. Since I do not do Trump and Pence, I am unable to assess how many additional "applause lie exist in the White House post, but I will wager there is at least one other lie and even if the remaining use of "Applause" is accurate, the one very egregious lie is enough for our daily dose of Trump lying.

Alas, we shouldn't be surprised. Within mere hours of his inauguration, Trump and his inner circle sent Sean Spicer, then Press Secretary, to the White House Pressroom podium to deliver an administration commencing lie. 

Spicer post firing from the Press secretary position eventually admitted regret for his part in the day two administration lie.

Australian media published this report on White House efforts to offer the public and the world an utter lie. (you really should go back an visit that link).  If you prefer a news host face with the report, here is a CNN version (only 56 seconds).


Here is the reality of the crowd size via Sean Spicer.  If you recall the Trump propaganda machine first indicated media was comparing images from differing tie points of the inauguration.  Well....yet another case of lost veracity. 

We again posit the "applause: lie shouldn't be a surprise. It is tragic as it will be yet another document in archived US history asterisks for as a lie.

Trumpism: The Art Of The Lie

If you don't already recognize Trumpism is foundationally set in the art of the lie, you must be an avid Trump supporter.

Do you recognize the buildings in the following picture?

Trump supporters post fake photos of huge crowds at Phoenix rally - as real images show room half-empty

Of course, you don't unless you live in Cleveland Ohio. If you live in Phoenix Arizona you certainly did not recognize the buildings and the crowd is also an enigma, unless you recognize a festive gathering of professional basketball supporters for their championship Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team.

Let's move to the next level of our remarks regarding the image and we start with a question. Why do Trump supporters so over-the-top exercises mind altering surreptitious acts in offering carnival barking lies to their fellow supporter? The image was plucked from a site across the Internet and published as crowd gathering for Trump's Phoenix rally. 

Now, for a picture of the crowd inside the arena.

 Ah yes, thousands upon thousands, right?

Think again!

David Catanese Twitter posted an image from another arena viewpoint.

Have we seen this subterfuge before?

Catanese also published this image of Trump's inauguration event.

Trump's former Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, attempted to apply a hefty coating of carnival barking related to the crowd via offering the world Trump-like embellishment.

It should be noted Spicer's earliest visits to the press room was imbued with a crowd size lie. You we expect any different from some Trump supporters?

Trump's speech will go down in US History as a hallmark to his eventual separation from the US Presidency Yet, his information cadres and certain of his irrational supporters offer carnival barking lies to deliver a false reality.

A Tragic Death, A GOP Money Broker, A Fake News Host, And Another 45 Scandal

Hiding From Russian Connections continued....

It probably doesn't surprise you to know Trump's White House conspired with Fox News in developing and broadcasting of a false story. for sake of clarity, the story was run over the course of days broadcast then archived; Fox mgmt. followed and reported on the false story as if it were a course from the Judeo-Christian Bible. And yes, the nation (correction Fox News viewers) followed the story as closely as one should pay attention to a pastor each Sunday. The reason for the concocted story, while not surprising, stretches the shame meter of conservative media and Trump's Campaign and mind-shaper operatives.

As you read through this piece and view the posted video, think deep about the quality of life inherent in entities who deploy levels of lies, misinformation and who practice outright manipulation of media. If you don't think of the likes of Hitler's Communications Minister, Joseph Goebbels, you are probably not well school in the history of humankind.

Fox News host Sean Hannity speaks during the Conservative Political Action Conference in 2016. Rod Wheeler, a longtime paid commentator for Fox News, appeared on Hannity's show to discuss Seth Rich's death. A week after the appearance, Fox retracted the story, saying the reporting process failed to live up to its standards.

Does it surprise to find Hannity at the core of the fake news?  Let's not forget Hannity was also at the White House this past week along with another Fox News personality. Remember, the meeting which so allegedly riled the then White House Chief of Staff.
If you prefer a more in-depth read, try NPR's account.
Ok, so the White House indicates Trump wasn't personally involved in the fake news scandal. A scandal nonetheless which settles awful close to Trump.
Media Matters version of the story.

CNN's Brooke Baldwin delved into the latest social maneuvering and political subterfuge from Trump and his cable news propaganda department.

It appears America has gone to sleep with dreams of a better day. The problem is....the Sandman delivered Donald Trump. And, that America is a major problem.

Sean Spicer Resigns As White House Press Secretary


Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, text
Six months to the day into the Trump Administration, we find increasing evidence of an administration totally unprepared and unqualified to lead a nation.  Not only are multiple investigations growing closer to an exposed Trump, we are finding more and more forced resignations or actual resignations.

Apparently, Sean Spicer, I Lie for Money Spicer, resignation as White House Press Secretary. Spicer will be leaving his job as a former member of the Trump transition team, Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci, comes on as Director of White House Communications.

Anthony Scaramucci Tweeted over the last few days about his love of Trump.

Praise of Trump as the announcement neared. Is it possible this guy knew what was possible and cycled up his suckling?  The Tweet on the 9th was major superseded by more personal suckling on the 11th.

.@DonaldJTrumpJr is a virtuous and honorable man. Virtue means the courage to act with integrity. Don does that everyday. 
Twitter Ads info and privacy

Proud to call him a friend. @DonaldJTrumpJr The truth is crystal clear. Will have your back always. 
In 2015, Scaramucci spoke very differently about pending candidate Trump What follows reminds of how Kelly Anne Conway slammed and disparaged Trump in her role on the Ted Cruz campaign. 
Scaramucci on Fox News (2015)

If Scaramucci actually feels he can exist in the Trump White House and survive and staying afloat of the level of expectations of lies and requisite lying, it speaks volumes about Scaramucci.

Sean Spicer States He Hasn't Talked To Trump About Russia

We know White House pressed "talkers' are handed scripts for their occasional appearances before the White House press corp. Despite the Trump communications model which includes gagged and non-responsive public talkers. But, what took place today as Sean Spicer came back to cameras and microphones after yesterday no cameras/no audio blackout, his appearance reinforced perceptions of a Trump authorized liar or Trump doesn't give one damn about any matters related to Russian election subterfuge.

Spice was asked a straight forward questions about Trump's thoughts on Russian interference in the 2016 elections. He was exhorted to offer a yes or no response, but as is always the case with any presser why bother with asking for a "yes" or "no".

Spicer responded as follows.
"I have not sat down and talked to him about that specific thing. Obviously, we've been dealing with a lot of other issues today," Spicer told reporters at his daily press briefing.

Many Americans are coming around to the reality the Trump regime is a regime imbued with vestiges of totalitarians (including stifling the press and media). Yet, we should all, as Americans, have the right to feel occupants of the White House are offering straightforward and honest communication. While all administrations hire spokespeople to deliver messages which are self-preserving and bias to the Oval Office, Trump's model verges on an aversion to openness with well cast shadows of deceit.

When coupled with public statements about possible eliminating offering press briefings or following Sean Hannity's suggestions to close the White House Press Office, the rational person cannot help but wonder about GOP commitment to the US Constitution. The crafters of the Constitution took great are to support a free press as a guard against tyranny.

It is important to recall Former FBI Director Comey stated during his nine visits with Trump was never asked about, nor partook in discussion of Russia.

Now, that is a problem.

"I Am A Deplorbable"

You know our position on Donald Trump, the GOP and conservative America.  We have no need to offer paragraph after paragraph of that you already know.  Current manifestations of Trumpism is far more relevant and important. We are going to run through a few of the nation's latest version of "Trumpism."

If you watched Monday night's debate you witnessed a child-like uber wealthy bloviator work at aligning his debate opponent and the two moderators charged with working to provide a healthy and informative forum. Of course, by now we all know when it comes to Trump all "healthy and informative" dialog have been relegated to a by-gone area in US politics. A by-gone era supplanted by our thirst for reality TV giggles, quips, and celebrity envy. How about checking-out one case of Trump 'whining' (like a child) about implied favoritism?

Watch a presidential candidate 'go silly' even when the reality is he talked on beyond his allotted time often.

She talked over, and you didn't stop her

Now, for a bit of outright lies. It should be noted fact-checkers have also dinged Clinton for a couple of noted "False" statements.

Trump's support for the Iraq War (since it continues to come-up)

Trumpism from his highly paid surrogates and the extent to which they are irrational robots. 

One noted talking head seemed to downplay Trump's "grabbing" remarks. Kayleigh McEnany is CNN's version of the Trump Town Crier and her followed the memo and strategy of laying Trump's 2005 vulgar statements to locker-room talk is utter despicable.

If you didn't visit the linked embed just above, here is the video and a link to the video.

From the heated discussion centered on Trump's immortality to the insane manifestation and chatter of arguably the GOP's number one Senatorial racist: Jeff Sessions (R-AL).

It shouldn't take a candidate for MENSA or an deacon in a Protestant church to recognize over-the-top sexism and illegal behavior. Sessions joins others in showing their utter disdain for the sanctity of the woman's psyche and body.

How about one more case of a noted RNC official disavow the reality of Trump's 2005 disgust. 
Senior #GOP official won’t say grabbing women w/out consent is #sexualassault @seanspicer is confused. Very.

The following embed is accompanied by a question. Why aren't we reading and hearing about this matter outside of social media? We war watching Trump deplorably a "Bill Clinton raped me" strategy of late. No one outside of social media is reporting on this case. MSNBC recently ran a segment of allegations Trump has a history that may involved rape of a minor.
Have you heard any comments from Trump (and company) about the horrors of violent crime in America? Of course, a few of our major cities have serious issues with violent crime. Trump, Giuliani and possible the cop unions who have endorsed Trump are chopping at the bits for reinstatement of "Stop and Frisk." 

How does famous quote read: "Facts are pesky things."(often stated by Ronald Reagan, the father of Modern US conservatism).

There is no overwhelming need for reinstating what amounted to personal abuse against blacks and Latinos in major cities.

In 2008, what actually took place in NYC Stop and Frisk assaults.

Image result for stop and frisk new york

Well, what has taken place since Stop and Frisk was ruled unconstitutional and stopped via the courts.

Image result for stop and frisk new york

In summary, the abusive policing tactic was disproportionately applied to blacks and Latinos, it didn't yield enough tools of violent crime to actually provide a corollary set of data, and NYC crime has bottomed-out since the abuse was stopped. A reality which correlates with a drop in violent crime as delineated in the Trump image above.

Yes the word "deplorable" certainly applies as we consider Trump, his surrogates and the majority of those who will vote for Trump in four weeks.
