As Trump's World Turns: Media As Base Feed (VIDEO)

Earlier today MSNBC's Andrew Mitchell hosted a segment in which to guest and the host discussed Trump's comments to staff just before entering the room of the now famous press conference. He is reported to have commented: "this will be fun."
President Trump: "I think I am a great moral leader and I love our country."

What follows is ugly and well outside the boundaries of acceptable behavior form an occupant of the Oval Office.

A planned attack on a CNN and NBC reporters.

From another angle, watch the Trump microphone henchwoman attempt to yank the mic for Jim Acosta.
Another look... 

The White House used a version of the interaction from of all sources INFO Wars, to support their yanking the press pass firm Jim Acosta. This is the same White House which denied US media an opportunity to capture the Trump meeting with Russian officials and Russian media in which he gave them military secrets the US received from Israel.
And how is the White House dealing with the aftermath of their use of doctored video? Well, with a former Fox News Executive on staff and in charge of White House communications, does what follows.  

INFO Wars !!!  

Here is the INFO Wars guy Alex Jones, during a late October Ted Cruz rally. Jones entertained the cameras with a metaphorical representation of Cruz's opponent, Beto O'Rouke. Jones's metaphorical target: a pile of horse manure. Linked

Trump also reminded the world of how he deals with issues in which he consistently places himself and his administration. From CNN and the media to call on a black reporter who he may have suspected would ask about his recent claim of "a nationalist." Trump knows full-well about assertions of white nationalism from his claim.
From deflective charges of racism to clear racist thoughts accompanied by presidential dialogue. A Japanese reporter received a full blast of GP racism.
While this piece was developed yesterday and went unpublished, know that Trump opened his day with yet another example of word and temperament towards reporters of color via the use of the word "dumb or "stupid": linked

Media earlier today captured this as Trump offered up his daily dose of racism for his base. 

CNN's Abby Phillip asked Trump a question and this ensued.

Granted Trump did say the question was "stupid." But do not fail to underestimate the power of such words with Trump supporters. In many cases people who seek to have their beliefs reinforced via their leader.

Is it actually possible Trump believes the black women reports are of less intelligence than he and his family? Or, and probably more to the point, is Trump practicing overt racism which feeds his base. I offer the latter based on my belief Trump is an over the top racist.

He couldn't assume the reporter is less intelligent based on her academic background. She attended Harvard University and finished with a Journalism Degree.  

All said I am certain you know of Trumps former attorney's comments about Trump's use of the word "stupid" with regard to African-Americans.


Michael Cohen: Trump said 'black people are too stupid to vote for me'

If one didn't know better, one could assume trump has total disdain for non-supporter and properly inquisitive or investigative media.

One final perspective. CNN's Brooke Baldwin speaks out against Trump's obvious disdain for black women reporters.

Witches And Hexes Via Trumpism

Related imageIf the phantom guy who comments about my writing more and less relying on video to carry my message wants to comment on this pro-Trump activist, feel free to do so and I will publish the comment.

There is about enough need to comment on the comments from Amy Kremer as there was a need to challenge Trump's proclamation against Obama's birth, Trump Tower secret taping via Obama, and even less need when one considers Mexico paying for the wall. What we have here is entertainment for Trump supporters via wallowing in WWE like rhetoric. Actually, the fill-in host Ali Velshi should have in some way commented about the insanity of such statements on international TV. If hosts allow such spreading of Chicken-Little like insanity it lowers the credibility of the network and the host.

Mediaite and the video clip. 
The essence of trumpism: "...witches and hexes."

Actually, we shouldn't have experienced any surprise with that which emanates from Kremer's mouth. YouTube is full of video segments of her zany punditry on behalf of all things Trump (and US conservatism). How about a sample? What follows is one three minute example. Linked, here.

Trumpism: 911 Clowning, GDP Lies And A Visit With Fox News

Would a man elected as the US President who manages himself like a WWE entertainer surprise you with the following image and comments regarding the US GDP?

As Trump arrived to take part in 9/11 commemoration events this morning.  

Presidential? Where is the side of the brain which would control and restrict a normal mind for such behavior and exercises of clownism. 

From his WWE march off the tarmac to his utter lie about US GDP and the US economy.

The GDP Rate (4.2%) is higher than the Unemployment Rate (3.9%) for the first time in over 100 years!

Need to say more?

The post was actually finished and ready for the Submit button, but a day passed and social media has a video of Tucker Carlson, Fox News Trump facilitator, tussling with Michael Avenatti of the Donald Trump sex worker matter. The video is a bit long but it shows how a non-Trump supporter simply must deal with a Trump presstitute like Carlson. Watch Carlson squirm like a purse snatcher hauled before a detective in a police station.

It seems to me Carlson's demagoguery failed. StumbleUpon

Trumpism: A Den Of Lies

While not exactly in sync with the theme of this post I am compelled to remind all of the electoral fallacy of a candidate winning 2.8 million votes than her opponent all the while losing an election. Yes, there is a major problem with US elections, as to process. The remainder of the post stands as evidence of a flawed electoral process coupled with rabid voters and an even larger group of non-voters.

The remainder of this piece relates to the growing reality of Trump as a shepherd of the dishonesty. the lie and the insane promulgation of a carnival at the highest level of federal governance.

Image may contain: 3 people, meme and text

Yesterday Trump's media lawyer appeared on Meet The Press. The way beyond rational. logical, and long past effective Giuliani again seemed far beyond a cogent level of rational. While defending Trump is more often than not a bridge too far regarding doable Giuliani's performances are showing yet another side of Trumpism. A side which exists far beyond the comprehension of Americans with rational minds unencumbered by Trump's aura.

Watch the utter insanity! 

The insanity is beyond the realm of well mental health. 

There is a key consideration of an irrational administration.  I posit the consideration is administration turnover.

If we remind ourselves of the level of turnover in Trump's Administration, we don't have to fall into deep contemplation of a leader who is disjointed, incompetent and guided by self-indulgence while making poor decision after poor decision.

Any management consultant will advise turnover above 30 percent in any employment period is an indicator of poor leadership. In reality turnover at the 30 plus level is far beyond an indicator of any single work environment factor. When we apply the reality of Trump turnover to any norms corporate we cannot help but avoid a work environment replete with poor hires in positions in which they shouldn't have been placed. It is an unavoidable reality which points a diagnostic finger directly at Trump.

What do you think about the following video?

Here is another take on trump turnover from the Rachel Maddow Show this past May. Linked here.

Alas, the horror isn't close to an end.  

We can add another "swamp critter" to the Trump Administration departure list. Apparently, a White House speechwriter, Darren Beattie, exercised his rights to attend a meeting attended by well-known white supremacists. The following CNN segment includes a headline and use of the phrase "white nationalist"; rest assured the terminated Staffer attended a white supremacists event.

If you wish to read a detailed piece regarding the fired staffer, we have linked to the  Washington Post here.

I actually wonder if the Trump Team can continue to deny its obvious affinity for all things white nationalist?  When a speechwriter gets fired for attending a meeting at which well-known white supremacists attended, we know we have a problem with white nationalism. 

By the way, some will not care for this next video, but I suggest it is a must view as we consider the utter hypocrisy and shamefulness from the White House Trump's wife grabs a platform and a microphone with the 1960s over the shoulder jacket look and spews verbiage her husband doesn't consider on a daily basis. 

You may have noticed I avoided any deep criticism of Trump's wife while directing the comment on hypocrisy and her husband.

Trump's Economy?

Image may contain: 1 person, text

All that Steve Schmidt stated or states hit the nail squarely in the center. We have witnessed three very notable and historic GOPers leave the party (albeit it temporary) with the ascension of Trump to party leaders. The GOP is Trump's party and serves as a facilitating platform for Trump's obvious desire to be king.

Would it surprise you to know there is a Tea Party movement to move additional states to the point of falling-in in support of a US Constitutional Convention? If you have grown to recognize the anti-US Government core of the Tea Party, it shouldn't surprise you that with a retention both House of Congress this fall there could be a movement to fast-track a convention.  All things considered, would it surprise you if one significant conservative deliverable form such a convention would be to remove the current term-limits on serving in the White House?

Seem far-fetched? 

For anyone who finds the prospect far-fetched, I posit there are enough supporters across the US to offer those who love and support Trump an opportunity to serve in a way no other president has served. How does such a path become cleared and paved? Answer: Trump carnival barking lying and competent propaganda outlets akin to what follows.

Image may contain: text

The US has many citizens which I call LIVS (Low Information Voters). People who vote on a whim and people who vote based on information from sources which deal in "alternative facts" (as per Kelly Anne Conway).

The people pictured above aren't people who have any interest in facts.

While Trump offers daily opportunity to run accuracy analysis via fact-checking organizations, today's fact-check comes from PBS via the Associated Press. The article is narrowly focused on Trumps lies regarding the US economy.

PBS recently joined virtually all credible media in offering a fact check of Trump's claims regarding the US economy and Jobs. The PBS article is based on an Associated Press Fact-check. Linked here.

A few images which point to the real fix for the US economy and the reality of Trump's lies.  I do agree

If the "Y" Axis and the "X" Axis of the chart don't work for discerning the essence of the chart, here's another version.

While it should be necessary, I find it important to remind readers what provided the stimulus for the current economy. Did I use the word "Stimulus?" Stimulus as in the The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, nicknamed the Recovery Act and commonly referred to as the "Stimulus."

The following are old charts, but each shows the impetus for the US recovery while making a point which I will state after the charts.

Trump should be asking for celebration that he, to date, has not reversed the gains from a Post-Bush Obama economic team.  The public should remind Trump and his team, economic ups and downs take time; accepting not crashing the Obama economy is nothing more than Trumpism propaganda.

As Trump's World Turns: The Carnival Act (VIDEO)

Trump continues to traipse across the nation promulgating his carnival act performance for his base, while the US is showing signs of crumbling on the periphery.

Here is a tidbit of his oozfest tonight in Tampa.

Here is a bit more from last night.

Let's take a few peeps at the perfect example of atypical behavior for a US President.  What follows is simply abhorrent.

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 [Hillary Clinton] emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.” – As if he isn’t already in hot water for his ties to Russia.
Since this post is about video expositions, I'll end now to work on other items. 

This is not normal!

As Trump's World Turns: Anchor Babies Anyone

Image result for us birthright

So Trump doesn't believe babies born to undocumented immigrants should receive citizenship status?  Wonder if we dig deeper we find Trump and his party means, brown babies?

"Anchor Babies?"

Trump on the campaign trail in 2015/16.

The framers of the US Constitution clearly intended the 14th Amendment would address US 'birthright" issues. 
Constitution of United States of America 1789 (rev. 1992)
Amendment XIVSection 1
All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Take a moment a watch and listen to what some considered a more rational candidate and Trump opponent in 205/16.

These kids will have the right to live and work here, receive social services and when they turn 21, they will have the right to sponsor their parents for an American Green Card.

As we look across the ethnic and cultural spectrum, we wonder if Trump and his party will start to pay attention to a growing reality. The reality of well-off Russian women coding to the US to deliver babies.  

Intriguing and disappointing at the same time. Intriguing regarding the prospect some of the babies might one day follow Russian operatives in service to Moscow in undercover roles. Disappointing the GOP, conservative America, and Trump finding apparent issues with Russian women delivering babies in the US.

What differentiates South of our border people from Russians? Oh, the answer is so very simple. you answered the questions in your mind. If you didn't discern the difference you are not being honest even with yourself.

A Trump's World Turns: More Trump Embarrassment in Helsinki

A Day In The Life Of Trumpism

A month ago Newsweek published a piece on its web page. We have posted the title below along with a link (the title).



Today Putin admitted publicly his desire for Trump to win in 2016.  While I am certain some will applaud Putin for his "honesty" I suggest such honesty is an after-confession of orders (implied or direct) for his cyber cadres to perform as they did in helping Trump win in 2016.

Watch and listen (40 seconds)

Donald Trump long ago expressed an interest in hobnobbing up to Putin. after 18 months he received his gift from heaven via time with Putin. Almost two hours of this time was in total private (other than translators).  An ideal environment for a person who did same with Kim Jong Un and now have o record of what Trump agreed to. It goes without saying the North Korean situation is fizzling into yet another crevasse as is the history of presidential interaction with North Korea leaders.  

Imagine what Trump might have agreed to in private session with the Russian dictator.  

While considering the unfathomable, how about Trump finding Putin's suggestion that his troopers great to join Mueller's investigation.

The 5 Most Bonkers Moments From The Seminal Trump-Putin 

Press Conference By Tierney Sneed | July 16, 2018

As we move to another day of Trumpism remember this Trump mention Peter Strzok in today's 

Trump on Putin cleansing. 
Trump today: “If anybody watched Peter Strzok testify over the last couple of days, and I was in Brussels watching it, it was a disgrace to the FBI, it was a disgrace to our country, and, you would say, that was a total witch hunt,” 
Watch and listen to a rather long news segment regarding Peter Strzok and the extent to which he is, in fact, an American hero.

If you watched that segment, then you know despite his indiscretions with a co-worker, Peter Strzok has a national defense and love of America compass unequaled among Trump and his cabal.

Trumpism: Meme Of The Day

Image may contain: 8 people, people smiling, text

Gowdy is resigning his seat in the US Senate, I suspect with full pension and opportunity to fully leverage his Trumpism.

Peter Strzok had no business using his government cell phone to send text messages to his affair partner, granted. He had n "lat night: business responding to her conversation inquiry about his thoughts on Trump becoming president as he responded, without question. I am certain after a successful career at bringing down a massive Soviet/Russian spy ring along with other untold national security wins (over is 26 year period with the FBI), Strzok is suffering mightily as he is reported to be serving in the FBI Human Resources function. While I suspect his service is above the level of FBI HR, he is no longer deeply immersed in fighting Putin.  

All said, however, his appearance at a Congressional hearing this past week coupled with a previous 11-hour closed session with many of the same showboating Republicans is a travesty.  An effort by Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell in providing potential damage to the Mueller Investigation well before the Special counsel move closer to key figures like Michael Cohen and Manafort.

The video above captured the essence of 15 minutes back and forth between The failed Clinton hearings chair, Gowdy, and the national hero Strzok.  

After the hearings, and just as Trump proper for his requested groveling time with Putin the Special Counsel announced indictments of 12 named Russian cyber military officials. Unarmed in the indictment are American co-conspirators of which, I feel there are a few.

Trumpism: Fox News As State TV

Image result for fox news meme

A few days back we posted the following graphic regarding The extent to which Fox News feeds its viewers Trump rallies. As you know Trump's rallies have become increasing nutty and self-serving railing sessions on-camera.

It is always critical to offer corollary and validating information when said information becomes available. Take a look at how Fox News has covered Trump and his administration's failure to reunite children literally snatched from their families. In some cases, the immigrant parent arrived at the border and followed written instructions to request amnesty. A legal act. Yet, their kids were taken into a system which effectively offered little humanity, continuing misplacement and non-parented housing of children 
(some as young as age one), and a system which received significant applause and accolades from the Right.
