Trump Junior Under Fire for Collusion

And so it finally begins - anonymous sources inside the White House ratted out Donald Trump's son, Don Jr., to the New York Times for a bombshell story about his meeting last year with a Russian lawyer who said she had access to Hillary Clinton's emails.

And everything Junior has written, tweeted, or posted since then has merely incriminated him even more. He's basically admitted to treason.

But this is just the tip of the iceberg. Son-in-law Jared Kushner and Manager Paul Manafort were also included in the email chain and attended the same meeting. They are both Kompromat with a capitol K.

From NBC News
WASHINGTON — Donald Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer who he believed had damaging information about Hillary Clinton in the midst of the 2016 election — and wrote "I love it" about the prospect of getting his hands on the material, according to emails released Tuesday by the president's eldest son.

The email exchange shows an acquaintance with ties to Russia, music publicist Rob Goldstone, told the son of then-candidate Donald Trump last year that the attorney has "information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father."

. . . In an interview Tuesday night on Fox News Channel's "Hannity," Trump Jr. said: "Someone sent me an email! I can't help what someone sends me. I read it, I responded accordingly, and if there was something interesting there, I think that's pretty common."

"It was literally just a wasted 20 minutes, which was a shame," Trump Jr. told host Sean Hannity, but he added: "In retrospect, I probably would have done things a little differently."

Trump Shames the U.S. at G-20 Meeting

The illegitimate President of the United States went to Europe for the G20 Summit Meeting, but his real goal seems to have been to hook-up with his bromance partner, Vladimir Putin. Trump showed his true colors and may have committed treason - again - by accepting Putin's lame denial about hacking the 2016 election, which contradicts America's own Intelligence community as well as information from out allies.

But when has Trump ever understood who our friends are and who our enemies are? He only wants to take care of number one - himself - and he owes money and the Presidency to Russia and Putin. If people didn't understand the meaning of "Kompromat" before the G20, surely they can understand it now.

And on top of all that, he took Ivanka with him and she sat in his place during some of the meetings. Ivanka has never been elected to public office, nor does she have any government experience. Dictators do things like this, not American Presidents. We don't live in a monarchy, but Trump still believes he is King and Ivanka is Daddy's Princess.

Trump the Dysfunctional President

 photo b4991c0d-0957-4375-a559-cbee866b2de1.jpg

We've never had a President like Trump in the past 240 years since America was founded. There have been good and bad presidents, and certainly a few corrupt presidents, but Trump combines too many bad traits to list, among them arrogance, dishonesty, greed, lack of curiosity, and hotheadedness.

He also suffers from diarrhea of the mouth and of his Twitter account - he cannot keep his fingers off the buttons of his phone long enough for his aides, family or anyone else to get him to temper his language. Anyone who offends him gets a CAPSLOCK rant on Twitter the next day.

Since the FBI investigation began to heat up a few weeks ago, Trump's behavior and tweets are increasingly bizarre and inappropriate. Whether this is just a symptom of fear, his chronic Narcissism, or the early warning signs of Alzheimers, is anyone's guess. However, some have begun to call for Congress to use the 25th Amendment to remove him from office because he seems unfit to serve.

Some are calling for a panel of doctors to evaluate Trump:

Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin is urging his colleagues to get behind a bill that could potentially oust President Donald Trump if he was mentally or physically unfit to lead, and the Maryland Democrat is citing the 25th Amendment of the Constitution as his legal backup.
. . . Raskin has proposed creating an 11-member commission made up of mostly physicians and psychiatrists -- more formally called the "Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity." The panel would carry out a medical examination and determine whether the President was physically or mentally able to do the job.

However some legal scholars feel it is an unlikely solution:

From CNN
(Constitutional scholar Gloria) Browne-Marshall, a professor of constitutional law at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, told CNN Monday, "That area of medicine is already ambiguous to begin with, so I think it would be even more difficult to apply it to an unwilling patient."
She added that even if such a commission was established and even if it came to the conclusion that a president was mentally unstable, legally, all the president would have to do is "deny" the findings of the commission and those findings would be kicked back to Congress.
In that event, according to section four of the 25th Amendment, Congress would have to take a vote within 21 days "after receipt of the latter written declaration," and a "two-thirds vote of both Houses" is required to transfer power from a president to a vice-president

And since the Mueller investigation is moving at a glacial pace (considering Trump and company have been on the radar for 25 years) and the GOP-led Congress has no will to impeach a President from their own party, no matter how horrible, we are stuck with a Dysfunctional President, which rightly terrifies half of the country and most of the rest of the world.

Jeff Sessions Can't Handle the Truth

 photo 09246f5a-cf1a-4709-89ef-d2898526db1c.jpg

Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, Confederate Attorney General of the United States of Trump, had trouble speaking the truth last week before the Senate Intelligence Committee. He insisted that he did nothing wrong while making numerous contacts with Russians - most of whom he said he couldn't remember - during the Trump campaign for President, even though he has recused himself from the investigation about Russian interference in the election, which would seem to imply some kind of guilt.

The Trump White House said the President was NOT claiming Executive Privilege to keep Sessions silent, and Sessions agreed. But then he waffled continuously on answers about his discussions with Trump for no apparent legal reason, infuriating some Senators who just want the truth to come out.

He also had the gall to tell Senator Kamala Harris of California that she made him "nervous," which raised eyebrows since she is a person of color and he has been known to pal around with the racist Alt-Right crowd. None of the white men on the Committee made him "nervous."

Revelations of Comey Day

 photo Comey Day.png

Ex-FBI Director James Comey made his much-anticipated appearance on Capital Hill in Washington last week, appearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Oh what a day it was!

His opening statement had been released the day before so the Senators had time to think up some interesting questions, and Comey had a chance to share his encounters with President Donald Trump just before he was fired.

Why did Comey choose to speak publicly? He was afraid the President would spin things differently than the truth - in other words, he called the President a liar. More than once.

Trump's Horrific Response to #LondonBridge Attack

 photo london-clipart-3.jpg

London suffered a serious terrorist attack the other day with multiple lives lost as pedestrians were rammed with vans and stabbed with knives:

Londoners rallied and started helping each other, as they always do, as sympathy poured in from the world.

On the other hand, our erstwhile 'leader' Donald The Trump spent the next 24 hours tweeting about fear of Muslims, pushing his Muslim Ban in the United States, and criticizing the Mayor of London - also a Muslim. He seemed to have no clue that emergencies call for a calm and cool response, not fear-mongering and political shenanigans. But then again, when has Trump ever been "Presidential" in any situation?

Jennifer Rubin writes in The Washington Post:

...The Brits fought back, launching drinking glasses and chairs at the savages who attacked them. The police acted with lightning-fast precision, killing the three assailants within eight minutes of the emergency call. And, God Bless him, a man returned to the bar where he experienced Saturday’s horror — to pay his bill and tip. Civilization is not going to be driven out of Britain by three or three hundred killers.
Meanwhile — and it pains me to write this — our president acted like a clod, a heartless and dull-witted thug in sending out a series of tweets....
. . . One is prompted to ask if he is off his rocker. But this is vintage Trump — impulsive and cruel, without an ounce of class or human decency. His behavior no longer surprises us, but it should offend and disturb us, first, that he remains the face and voice of America in the world and, second, that his fans hoot and holler, seeing this as inconsequential or acceptable conduct.

Keith Olbermann stated in his GQ "The Resistance" Video:

Let me apologize again to the world, particularly to the United Kingdom, on behalf of the United States of America. Donald Trump is not of sound mind. We are working to correct the problem as soon as possible. . . . In almost any other job in this country, assuredly in any other private sector job, no matter the financial cost, no matter the upheaval, no matter the blow-back, Donald Trump, our national embarrassment, our international disgrace, would have been fired by now.... everywhere from the Board Room at Microsoft to the deep fryer at McDonald's.

Trump Tweets #Covfefe At Midnight

 photo covfefe.jpg

On the same day it was reported that Trump's lawyers want to screen all his tweets, he made one of his funniest tweet gaffes ever!

Just after midnight, he let loose a strange sentence fragment complaining about press coverage, only the last word was the mysterious "Covfefe." The word trended all night and yet no one from the White House could delete it because Trump apparently fell asleep with his phone (maybe while sitting on the toilet?).

 photo 6a942caa-ae07-4956-a251-8ca8073ac501.png

Twitter immediately exploded with hilarious memes. Note that the word "Rosebud" was also trending at the same time - that is the last word in the film Citizen Kane spoken by the main character, an extremely wealthy but unhappy man who was remembering a sled he left in the snow on his last happy day of childhood. The cryptic parallel was obvious and made by twitter fans over and over.

UPDATE: Donald Trump chose not to explain the next day what he meant by "Covfefe," merely tweeting:

It was the unfortunate Spokesman Sean Spicer who came out for his daily press briefing to suffer questions about the Trump tweet, giving it a note of high seriousness that "Covfefe" did not deserve.

"The president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant." ~ Sean Spicer

Hillary Clinton quipped:

And later Hillary tweeted this retort:


Citizen Trump and the new Rosebud
