The Daily GOP Ignominious: CNN Loves To Visit With Trump Voters, "Me Too"

Quick Hit: Some of the panels made excuses for Trump's vulgarity while others regret their vote. My concern is the psyche and judgment of the panelist who now regrets their votes. The rationalizing sycophants are nothing shy of examples of the level to which conservative America has devolved into a social cesspool.

"He's a man!"  

Well, so am I and I have never gone so gutter with disrespect for woman via physical abuse. Oh, alas I am not famous so I can not do whatever I want.

While not a panelist, it is worthwhile to also visit with what some consider a national evangelical figure ad his fumbling and stumbling take on Trump's sleaze.

Before the linked video, I remind of Trump history of severe veracity deficiency syndrome.

Watch Franklin Grahna stumble through an interview with CNN's Don Lemon. Graham frequently resorted to "He said he didn't do it."  I suggest viewing the two images above and then watch the videos.

And, Graham is supposed to be a man of the cloth.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Fossil Fuel Barons Are Busy With Your GOP

A couple of days ago, we published a piece in which we reported on Paul Ryan's potential receipt of $500K (campaign contributions) from the Koch brothers.

As we watch the horror of GOP elimination and dismantling measures to protect our environment from fossil fuel barons, it is truly disgusting to witness our politicians pad their bank accounts and their campaign hoppers.

The rational Americans should wonder about this:

In a major blow to renewable energy, President Donald Trump decided on Monday to slap tariffs on imported solar panels.

We really should wonder about the GOP attack on safe and renewable energy.

The Daily GOP ignominious: Trump Presser And CNN Fact Check

Image result for trump camp david presser today
We previously posted the following Trump Camp David presser. The previous post included the suggestion that Trump has gone almost one year without a press conference; why offer up such an event now? The Fire & Fury book and Trump's over the top obvious concern with its revelations.  So what did he do? He drug GOP leadership (with an exception of his Attorney General) on the stage and worked to refute passages in the book while defending a tweet in which he referred to himself as a "genius."

Our specific interest in posting the video is to draw your attention to the first 26 seconds of the presser.  Watch as Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell entered the picture. Does Paul Ryan seem excited and anxious to be on the stage?  He actually seems to signal his displeasure.  Ryan's non-verbals must have been intentional as people who attain his level of congressional leadership surely understand the nuances of oratory as well as non-verbal messaging.  

The full video is linked, here.  Again our primary interest is in the first 26 seconds.

As is always the case, Trump's presser was replete with lies and embellishment and included an outright red flag from Mitch McConnell. McConnell mentioned bi-partisanship in Congress going forward. Well, did the GOP offered an iota of bi-partisanship to Democrats in the Obama Years?  

Trump's presser was carefully crafted around his need to address issues form the Michael Wolff book. As we have come to live each week, lets sit for a CNN fact check of the presser.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Morning Reality TV

Related image

It seems the nation's 45th President arose this morning with deep thoughts of electoral inadequacy and a need to confront growing sentiment and suspicions of his mental state.

Sady, we as a nation are being transformed into a huge reality TV audience with daily anticipation of, "what has the clown done overnight," 

A few early morning tweets are as revealing as another episode of "Breaking Bad." 

Take a read...

Brian Ross, the reporter who made a fraudulent live newscast about me that drove the Stock Market down 350 points (billions of dollars), was suspended for a month but is now back at ABC NEWS in a lower capacity. He is no longer allowed to report on Trump. Should have been fired! 

Is there a psychiatrist or a mental medical professional who can help the world understand why Trump spends so much time and mental energy disparaging a former political opponent? The nonqualified mind, as in my case, cannot avoid the prospect he suffers for election win "inadequacy" based on not winning the popular vote. Or, is he so driven by conflict and chaos he must perpetually duel with an opponent; even if an imaginary lingering opponent. 

Also, note Trump continues to use his patented dog whistle phrase" "Crooked Hillary." Consider Trump's track record of lawsuits settled out of court, charges of discrimination, Trump University fraud settlements, refusal to go public with his tax records and think of who is 'crooked."

Do you remember this?

The Daily GOP Ignominious: When The Top Leads The Minions Follow (The Great Lie)

Image result for trump lies

When the US has a president who lives with a ready-to-go at the tip of his tongue, we get what follows on a daily basis.
GovTrack Insider
By his own standard, the President has sunk to last place with 94 bills signed into law by his 336th day in office (today). That’s 8 fewer than President George W. Bush and not even half as many as presidents Bill Clinton (209) and George H.W. Bush (242):

See the methodology for noes on Truman, Johnson, and Ford.

Established and reinforced on a daily basis.  Is there any wonder the ever-ready lie spreads down from the top. Trump's UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley)was recently the victim of a punk call and she bit like an old Catfish.

The following video is 22:00 minutes in duration.  I have posted a link for the segment which has garnered international attention.  

Why lie?  why not just say, I am not familiar with the incident of which you speak and put the caller back on his or her heals?

The Youtube video which follows:

Famous Russian pranksters Vovan & Lexus played a phone trick on the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley. Presenting themselves as The Prime-Minister of Poland they had a conversation with her that lasted for about 30 minutes. Nikky Haley was informed about the situation in Binomo - an island in the South China Sea: Putin supposedly interfered in their elections (this island doesn't exist for real). Ignorant Ambassador stated in all seriousness she was aware of the situation and confirmed Putin interfered in the elections of Binomo. Though it doesn't exist at all. Haley and the pranksters also discussed Kevin Spacey's harassment towards the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and Trump's harassment. Vovan & Lexus are famous for their pranks with Senator McCain and Senator Graham, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Congressman Adam Shiff, the U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan, the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, British singer Elton John and many other politicians and celebrities in Russia and the world.
Do you know Binomo?  (this island doesn't exist for real)

The Russian prank duo has caught others with their guard down. How can a credible UN Ambassador so readily fail for a prank involving a nation which doesn't exist on Earth? The question is rhetorical. The answer' it flows from the top. If the first thought wasn't to accommodate with a lie, such would not have taken place.

If you are leaving this post with your head shaking or thoughts of how did we get here, you may have interest in this Fox News segment

The Trump base (core GOP) love Trump.

And, therein lies our national shame.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Your President

Within the hour Trump tweeted this while brandishing the November Jobs Report.   

Typical Trump mind-shaping.

Seth Abramson posted a more accurate pool result via the CBS Poll.

Pew Research (December 7, 2017)
The new national survey by Pew Research Center conducted Nov. 29-Dec. 4 among 1,503 adults, finds that President Trump’s job approval rating has declined over the course of his first year in office. 
Currently, 32% of the public approves of the way Trump is handling his job as president, while 63% disapprove.

Trump and his team apparently grabbed a poll which historically shows favorable approval ratings for Trump which far surpass polls other than Rasmussen.

Morning Consult/Politico (December 6, 2017)
The poll also shows a small uptick in Trump’s approval rating as president — to 45 percent, up from 43 percent last week. A slight majority, 51 percent, disapprove of the job Trump is doing as president.
A quick review of the Politico Poll Demographics yields a telling statistic.

While the Politico Poll appears fairly balanced relative to party affiliation, the poll respondent pool is a bit of a problem. Let's suffice it to say, there is no surprise Trump would poll at 45 percent of the respondents.

Politico (pdf)

It is important during the error of Trump to always review poll methodology and demographics.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: KellyAnne Conway (Alternative Facts?)

Forty-four seconds in US History presented by the Trump Administration's number one presstitute, the former Ted Cruz presstitute, KellyAnne Conway. Alternative Facts Kelly.

Yes, you recall that 44 seconds of pure credibility killing drivel from the White House. I should qualify credibility killing for rational Americans who have avoided the severe psychological infestation of Trumpism.

Apparently earlier today, Conway appeared on CNN's New Day and jousted with a show host.  Conway was fully equipped and loaded with alternative facts.

Keith Boykin, Democrat Party consultant, and strategist, Twitter post.
Kellyanne Conway: “The president has tremendous moral standards.” 
Trump: “I did try and fuck her. She was married...I moved on her like a bitch...I just start kissing them... And when you’re a star, they let you do it...Grab ‘em by the pussy.”
It seems the occupants of the White House have moral values uncommon to denizens of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The Daiy GOP Ignominious: Trump Advanced US Racism From the Oval Office

Trump again steps on US decency and stood as a mockery of US leadership during an honor session with a dwindling group of US World War II Heroes. While addressing a group of former US communications "code talkers", again used one of his favorite racial slurs: "Pocahontas."


A. Using the word "Pocahontas" as a blanket disparaging disruptor for Elizabeth Warren, US Senator, and former university educator is over-the-top racist.

B. Using the racist slur while hosting a group of Americans most effective weapons in World War II Native American heroes, was gutter racist with no regard for the former communications warriors in the room.

C. Trump's remarks highlight an undercurrent of racism and white supremacy which is deeply ingrained in the GOP and shared by millions who call themselves conservatives. Of course, bias and feelings of bigotry are not confined to the GOP and conservative Americans, but without question, the vast majority of racist and white supremacist do not subscribe to progressive o liberal politics.

D.  Andrew Jackson as a US President was known as"the Indian killer" President. Trump and his handlers staged the press opportunity with Trump's beloved picture of Andrew Jackson very visibly displayed and bubbling over with subliminal messaging. Jackson signed the US Indian Removal Act of 1830. How is the optics and different from a staged White House setting hosting the remaining Tuskegee Airman with an image of David Duke, Founder of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan in 1975, visible lurking in the background? 

Media is not embracing Trump's latest attack on non-white Americans.  


Trump Pocahontas Slur: The President Has a Long History of Insulting ...


In March of this year, Trump's use of the name Pocahontas as a slur was addressed by Native News Online.

Native News Online (March 2017)
Nonetheless, Trump's staffers and presstitutes took up the standard defense posture after their boss let the racial slur. The White House official response was utter ignorant and way outside the scope of sensible.

While it is easy to regurgitate that old axiom: "perception is in the eyes of the beholder", we think it deplorable for Trump to show such utter racism. It is even more disgusting to have a tax paid "presstitute" adorn the White House press room podium stage and offer weak deflective but rap to cover Trump's racism.

Alas, there is another relevant axiom regarding perception: "perception is all that matters."

The leader if the Alliance of Colonial Era Tribes, John Norwood, spoke about Trump's continued use of the racial slur.

John Norwood, general secretary of the Alliance of Colonial Era Tribes, said Trump’s nickname for Warren “smacks of racism.” 
“The reference is using a historic American Indian figure as a derogatory insult and that’s insulting to all American Indians,” said John Norwood, the general secretary of the Alliance of Colonial Era Tribes, adding that the comment “smacks of racism.” 
Norwood told MSNBC that the president should “stop using our historical people of significance as a racial slur against one of his opponents.”
A report with Indian Country Today and the other publications also address Trump's slur via her Twitter account. Linked, here
Respected journalist Ruth Hopkins of Indian Country Today and The Last Real Indians, well known for her outstanding coverage of the Dakota Access Pipeline protests, took to Twitter to set the record straight:
Pocahontas was a pre-teen who was kidnapped, held hostage & raped by European invaders. Stop using her name as a racial slur & how dare you insult these brave Native men who risked their lives for this country.  
Not to mention, these men are Navajo (Dine) and Pocahontas was from the Pamunkey tribe. Two entirely different Native nations.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Code Talkers Met With Trump Racism

Image result for trump racism with code talkers
Utter racist

During World War II, The US Military (Department of Defense) deployed teams of Navajo Native Original Americans for radio communications.  It doesn't take even an average brain to know why the US forces would use native speaking Americans against the Japanese in the Pacific.

If you cannot fathom why US Forces would deploy the "code talkers", think in terms of Japanese mastery of American English. Now, think in terms of Japanese listening posts performing INTEL as the US and England successfully deployed in both World War II combat theaters.  The Japanese had no native language specialist to eavesdrop on the code talkers.  An effective war strategy and weapon based squarely in the realm of American diversity?

Well, a few minutes ago the nation's ill-prepared and insensitively bigoted president could not resist lowering his meeting with the code talkers to the level of Fox News, Rush Limbaugh and all things racist in conservative America.

Take a look and listen to a couple of minutes from Trump's statements to the world in front of the visiting code talkers.

One day back for his 100th (vacation) day away from the Oval Office and Trump offers a super dose of racism.

How ironic the totally undereducated and ignorant Trump would continue to use a racial slur when the person called "Pocahontas" (resulting from tribal leadership fear of reprisals against the tribal princess) did so much to assist English colonists in the New World.

Lawrence O'Donnell via MSNBC's The Last Word offers a history lesson conservatives and racist should consider.

Racism is so very ugly. And, it took place on Trump's very first day back from the Thanksgiving Day holiday.
