Trumpism: Espousing The Corruption And Utter Void of Decency





No automatic alt text available.

Earlier today CNN ran a segment with Trump's nominee to head the Veterans Administration and his overnight withdrawal from the nomination process. While I doubt there are ten people in the US who actually believe Jackson was even remotely qualified to head the federal agency with 300,000 plus employees, We shouldn't shy away from the reality Trump; is the lousiest of managers.

The CNN segment included an intriguing statement for a Republican contributor.  Matt Lewis.....
“This is yet another example of Trump taking actually someone who had a pretty sterling reputation, this guy way highly regarded and respected… and now his reputation is in tatters,” Lewis said. “For some reason Donald Trump has this sort of reverse Midas effect on people he interacts with.”
Here are the remarks about one minute after another contribution spoke about Trump and his manner of influencing the message:  linked.

Here is the full segment:


A nation should be aware of the dangers inherent in the president it elected in 2016.

Trump: A Fact Checker's Dream



Jared Kushner

The Rachel Maddow Show recently ran a segment about the undercurrent of privilege and money guided administration for Trump's son-in-law. What follows is a bit long (run time), but I cannot think of a news related segment which should garner more attention. Yes, this one is a big deal and worthy of the 7:43 minutes viewing time.

MSNBC Post
Rachel Maddoow looks at past reporting on Jared Kushner's sketchy meetings with Chinese officials, and notes the tie-in to a scoop in Ronan Farrow's new book "War on Peace" that found Kushner to be the source of Rex Tillerson remarks parroting China's preferred ... more Duration: 7:43



Trump is without question a serious threat the to well-being of our democracy.

Trump's Information Machine Working Your Psyche (Polls)




A couple of days back we ran a piece with the following lede paragraphs and graphics. (Winning, Winning, Winning: Polls Don't Agree)

The ship is truly sinking. 

Image result for trump sinking AmericaDonald Trump, as President, is suffering decreasing approval ratings along with related increasing disapproval ratings and Gallup has just published a piece regarding Trump's 
satisfaction rate/ level among Republicans.  Yes, the ship is sinking.

Gallup


Satisfaction with Direction of US by Party Affiliation

A quick review of the graphic shows a dramatic drop in Republican satisfaction of their nascent party leader and president. In May, the rate was around 57 percent, half way through June the rate has dropped 17 points.
__________________________________________

We knew when we ran the piece Rasmussen's right lean polling would offer Trump a prop up via reporting Trump with a 50% approval rating.  We also knew that Trump would dispatch his cadre of "presstitutes" to the airways (with an exception of MSNBC) to offer outright lies and misinformation about Trump's perception among the US citizenry.

Crooks & Liars captured the Mike Huckabee Fox News visit like no other media. Trump surrogacy is as shamefully narcissistic as any of the nation's 45  President across.  As we move through the early years of the 21st Century, it is amazing the depth, level, and scope of Rightwing manipulation of Americans who subscribe to conservative ideology.

Mike Huckabee: Trump Is A 'Remarkable President'



In another sycophantic segment, Fox and Friends has created a new presidential marker, "the first 150 days of Trump" (way to move the goalposts!) Mike Huckabee claims Americans should be saying, "Thank you, Mr. President." Trump hasn't passed any meaningful legislation within Congress on jobs or taxes, and outside of using executive orders, he's done nothing…

It appears Republicans are falling-off-the Trump Carnival wagons. Wagons the GOP and conservative Americans have circled around Trump since revelations of his Billy Bush vagina grabbing video. Those emptying wagons mean sure doom for the GOP.  

Alas, the suffering doesn't stop with the GOP The national satisfaction rate has dropped to a one year low of 24 percent.
