    Rachel Maddow reporting:

    ONE OF THE HALLMARKS OF THIS SCANDAL-RIDDEN TIME IN OUR NATIONAL LIFE, ONE OF THE HALLMARKS OF THIS UNPRECEDENTEDLY SCANDAL-RIDDEN PRESIDENCY IS UNFORTUNATELY THAT VERY SERIOUS THINGS, VERY SHOCKING THINGS EVEN, TEND TO JUST PASS BY.

    EVEN THE MOST SERIOUS THINGS, THEY JUST PASS BY.

    I MEAN, THE PRESIDENT’S CAMPAIGN CHAIRMAN WAS SENT TO PRISON.

     

    THE PRESIDENT’S DEPUTY CAMPAIGN CHAIRMAN WAS ALSO SENT TO PRISON.

     

    THE PRESIDENT’S SELF-NAMED CHARITY WAS SHUT DOWN AS AN ONGOING CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE

    HIS CHILDREN ARE HENCE FORTH RESTRICTED BY LAW FROM EVEN BEING  ASSOCIATED WITH CHARITIES

    THE PRESIDENT’S UNIVERSITY WAS SHUT DOWN AS A SCAM AND HE TO PAY $25 MILLION TO SETTLE FRAUD CLAIMS AGAINST IT.

    THE PRESIDENT WAS IMPEACHED

    THEN THE PRESIDENT RETALIATED AGAINST ALL OF THE WITNESSES THAT TESTIFIED IN THE IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS.

    01:16

    HE INTERVENED TO CHANGE THE FBI PLANS FOR THE HEADQUARTERS BUILDING TO BENEFIT HIS DOWNTOWN WASHINGTON, D.C. HOTEL.

     

    THE PRESIDENT’S SISTER HAD TO RESIGN AS JUDGE, TO AVOID AN ETHICS INVESTIGATION INTO TAX EVASION SCHEMESN SHE AND THE PRESIDENT BENEFITTED FROM, IN TERMS OF THE FAMILY FORTUNE THEY BOTH INHERITED.

     

    SHE GAVE UP HER LIFETIME APPOINTMENT AS A JUDGE SO THAT WOULD NOT BE LOOKED AT.

    >>> THE PRESIDENT’S CABINET SECRETARIES AND HIGH LEVEL APPOINTEES, NATIONAL SECURITY

    ADVISERS,

    DEFENSE SECRETARIES.

    WHITE HOUSE CHIEFS OF STAFF,

    WHITE HOUSE COMMUNICATIONS

    DIRECTORS.

    HAND PICKED SENIOR ADVISORS, THEY HAVE ALL BASICALLY RUN SCREAMING FROM THE WHITE HOUSE WARNING PUBLICLY HOW DANGEROUS UNFIT HE IS TO BE NEAR THE PRESIDENCY.

     

    EVEN NOW, HE IS RANDOMING SUPPORTING A SO-CALLED MIRACLE CURE OF THE CORONAVIRUS, SAYING HE IS TAKING IT AND YOU SHOULD TOO.  INCIDENTALLY, IT’S BEEN DISPROVEN AS A CURE FOR CORONQ VIRUS OH AND BY THE WAY, IT’S KILLING SOME PEOPLE.

    THOSE ENDORSEMENTS OF HIS MIRACLE CURE WERE BOTH BEFORE AND AFTER HE SUGGESTED THAT MAYBE AMERICANS SHOULD INGEST DISINFECTANTS TO CLEAN OUT THE VIRUS FROM INSIDE OUR BODIES.

    02:33

    >>>  THE PRESIDENT WHO PUT THE GUY WHO GAVE JEFFREY EPSTEIN HIS GET OUT OF JAIL FREE CARD INTO HIS CABINET. REMEMBER ALEX ACOSTA?

    THIS IS THE PRESIDENT WHO PUT HIS SON’S WEDDING PLANNER IN CHARGE OF FEDERAL HOUSING IN THE NORTHEAST UNITED STATES.

    JUST IN THE PAST COUPLE WEEKS WE WERE TOLD THAT HE WAS INFORMED OF RUSSIA OFFERING BOUNTIES ON US TROOPS — HE DID NOTHING ABOUT IT AT ALL.

    HE WAS OFFERED A MENU OF POSSIBLE ACTS OF RETALIATION AGAINST RUSSIA, AND HE CHOSE I WILL DO NOTHING.

    THESE THINGS JUST PASS BY.

    IT’S THE PRESIDENT WHO PRESSURED THE POST OFFICE TO GO AFTER AMAZON, BECAUSE HE DOES NOT LIKE THE WAY THE NEWSPAPER OWNED BY THE AMAZON GUY COVERS HIM IN IS PRESIDENCY.

    HE FIRED AN INSPECTOR GENERAL, AMONG MANY HE FIRED.

    HE FIRED ONE THAT WAS INVESTIGATING THE SECRETARY OF STATE AND HIS WIFE

    HE FIRED THAT INSPECTOR GENERAL BECAUSE THE SECRETARY OF STATE ASKED HIM TOO.

     

    THIS IS THE GUY WHO TRIED TO GET THE G-7 MEETING HELD AT HIS GOLF CLUB IN FLORIDA.

     

    HE ADVERTISED HIS WIFE’S JEWELRY LINE ON THE WHITE HOUSE WEBSITE, COMPLETE WITH THE TRADEMARK NOTE.

     

    >>> THIS PRESIDENT APPARENTLY BELIEVES THAT FREDERICK DOUGLAS IS STILL ALIVE.

     

    AND THAT THE STATUE OF A RANDOM BRONCO RIDER IN HIS OFFICE IS TEDDY ROOSEVELT.

    THIS IS THE PRESIDENT WHO RANDOMLY TOOK A SURPRISE EMERGENCY TRIP TO WALTER READ MILITARY HOSPITAL AND WON’T SAY WHAT IS FOR.

     

    THIS PRESIDENT CHANGED A HURRICANE FORECAST TO ONE THAT HE LIKED BETTER THAN THE REAL ONE

    AND THEN MADE THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAY THEY AGREED WITH HIS MADE-UP VERSION.

     

    BUT BY VIRTUE OF THE SHEAR NUMBER OF SCANDALS THAT SURROUND

    04:49

    HIM LIKE FLIES AROUND PIG PEN, THESE HAVE JUST BECOME PART OF

    WHAT WE EXPECT, RIGHT?  WE HAVE A MOMENTUMARY SHOCK AND NEW LEVEL OF INTEREST AND THEN WE WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE.

    THEY ALL JUST PASS BY. (normalized by a lazy, thoughtless electorate and complicate Republican Party who is behold to serving the top one percent of this nation, and disregarding the rest.)

    Yet people tell me he’s a great man and that the Corona Virus is a hoax, besides China created it – without the slightest indication of a little cognitive dissonance happening.  Guess if one never thinks about what they are saying, its possible.

     

    So, where do they get that love for trump?  and that hatred for everyone who isn’t nice and white like they are.

    How do they figure he’s doing a good job?  <i>{okay if vandalism is the goal he’s doing a fantastic job, but is it really what you want?  Do you have any clue the stakes we are gambling away?}</i>

    Beyond rage at liberals that they morphed into boogiemen for their paranoid little hearts to fret over.

    Oh yeah blind greed: I want what’s mine and I want what’s yours!

    Then,

    if u’all can’t win it all, well than destroy it all.  ???   That sure what it looks like from this side of the fence.

    What up?

    People are dying in the red states now due to this freak.

    The very places that the t rump has goaded in to opening up, as if that would be good for the economy, when not opening up properly will only serve to set the economy back again.

    The t rump is a truly disastrous failure in all respects of the crises that are simultaneously bringing America down.  He does not have the wherewithal to deal with these crises, and in fact he has been making them worse.

    He is corrupt beyond corruption.  He cannot deal with the pandemic, period.  He cannot deal effectively with the crisis of racial justice that we are currently facing.  He is only going to make the economy fare worse, by not being able to deal with the pandemic. He has shown himself to be incapable of filling the office that he holds in a way that can make America great.  Instead, he is turning it into one of those s___hole countries he complains about.

    He must go ASAP for the country’s sake.  Resign t rump. Resign, now.

    People are always dying at the normal death rate of 8000 per day in America with a population of 320 million. Dying is elimination. It’s an essential part of human health.

    5 Ways the Trump Administration’s Policy Failures Compounded the Coronavirus-Induced Economic Crisis
    By Ryan Zamarripa June 3, 2020,

    www – americanprogress – org/issues/economy/news/2020/06/03/485806/5-ways-trump-administrations-policy-failures-compounded-coronavirus-induced-economic-crisis/

    The Trump administration failed to take the pandemic seriously (and the graphs to prove it)

     

    A botched public health response

    A failure to help workers retain their jobs

    Three years of slashing critical safety nets

    A failure to prevent layoffs of state and local workers

    A failure to help small businesses

     

    Trump entrenched in failed strategy as virus surges and polling drops
    By Jim Acosta, Dana Bash and Kevin Liptak, CNN –  June 25, 2020

    www – cnn – com/2020/06/25/politics/donald-trump-campaign-coronavirus-strategy/index .html

    He will never change on the mask. He doesn’t want that picture,” one White House official said. “He knows masks are important, but he doesn’t want that image or to admit he is wrong.”
    A person familiar with the White House coronavirus task force discussions noted Thursday how Dr. Deborah Birx — the coordinator of the administration’s response effort — has almost vanished from the national scene. While the task force has convened periodically over the past week, the nationwide spike in cases does not appear to have prompted an urgent return to daily briefings.
    “The facts speak for themselves,” the person said of the task force’s diminished role.

    What is there to respect about a man, let alone leader, who is incapable of admitting error???

    Besides absolutely disconnected from physical reality.

    A detailed timeline of all the ways Trump failed to respond to the coronavirus
    The federal coronavirus response shows a president dead set on avoiding responsibility for the pandemic.

    By Cameron Peters – Jun 8, 2020,

    Throughout the pandemic, however, much of the Trump administration’s spin — regarding Trump’s own response, China’s role, and more — has been misleading, if not outright untrue. Here’s what Trump and the federal government have — and have not — done to respond to the virus.

    2019
    In late 2019, the coronavirus wasn’t on much of the world’s radar. President Trump was becoming the third president in US history to be impeached. We now know, however, that the first cases of the virus were cropping up as early as November. Here’s where things stood late last year:

    November 17: Although it was not diagnosed as such at the time, researchers have now identified the first confirmed Covid-19 case as having been seen on November 17 in China’s Hubei province.

    December 27: A man in France, who is now the first known Covid-19 patient outside of China, goes to the emergency room with a fever and difficulty breathing. At the time, Covid-19 was still unheard of outside of China.

    December 31: The Wuhan Municipal Health Commission reports the first cluster of cases of a “pneumonia of unknown cause,” later identified as Covid-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, now called SARS-CoV-2.

    and so on and so forth . . . https://www.vox.com/2020/6/8/21242003/trump-failed-coronavirus-response

    It’s an essential part of human health. — Sree

    Public service announcement: Don’t do any of these things, ever:

    Sree, what things do you think are “bad”, or should be avoided? What numbers do you see and facts do you know that tell you to not stand in a lightning storm holding a metal rod, not drive towards a tornado, not go to the beach when the tidal wave warning is sounding, to eat non-poisonous foods, to avoid venomous snakes and scorpions, to not put a noose around your neck and kick out the chair from underneath, to not insert a fork in an outlet. What it is that motivates you to not do any other those things?

    So COVID-19 was in France in Dec of 2019.  The mutated version of the virus that infected the NE USA and killed the greater number of Americans was from Europe.

    So we should call it the French Flu, or the Mad Italian Disease, or Napolean’s Revenge, or something more relevant to where it really came to us from.

    Trump’s Virus

    Since he’s been responsible for it’s manic spread more than any other single person.  Republican Party are his traitorous enablers.

    Kids we are watching the destruction of America before our eyes.

     

    Oh and now hospitals have been ordered to stop sending their data to the CDC.

    And the worthless adults in the room, still stand by with their thumb up their keisters.

    Trump Administration To Hospitals: Don’t Send Covid-19 Coronavirus Data To CDC

    … All of these methods essentially bypass the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Healthcare Safety Network, which has long been the nation’s healthcare-associated infection tracking system. It is not perfect but has been by far the most comprehensive method of tracking infectious disease cases in health care facilities across the country. This network already has a Covid-19 module that includes a dash board where you can see such things as a snapshot of current hospital capacity estimates and the percentage of inpatient beds occupied by Covid-19 patients – Change in 14 Day Period.

    So now HHS is telling hospitals to report data such as hospital inpatient bed occupancy, mechanical ventilators in use, number of suspected or confirmed Covid-19 cases, and N95 masks available directly to HHS. Or at least through their states to HHS. But not to CDC. …

    Beyond the pale, and we are still just getting started.

    The t rump admin wants to control the narrative.  But the data about COVID-19 is the main data that matters these days.  So they try to get a department that is already t rumpified to take over the control of the data.

    It is more of the t rump’s tinpot dictator whims.  But his only strategy is to try to control the narrative such that enough people believe his lies that he can win an electoral college victory, or close enough to contend over, so that he can use the system t cheat his way in.

    #331834

    Not to mention that most Republicans want to be lied to,

    they want to be soothed,

    they want to pretend that all the problems in the world are someone else’s fault,

    and that they are innocent as a naked babe fresh outta the womb.

     

    Oh and speaking about Trolls, we have a President who is Troll In Chief – it is how they have made it so far in our apathetic Hollywood addicted society, even televangelists are more Hollywood than Bible and the people are just fine with that.

    We’d better find a better way of effectively confronting them Trolls,

    well …,  if anything is going to change.

    The Lincoln Project

    The coronavirus crisis has revealed, once again, that Donald Trump is dangerously unfit for office. A public health crisis of this magnitude requires informed and honest leadership, at a minimum. Americans can no longer remain silent.

    There are other conservative groups working against the t rump and for Biden, besides just “The Lincoln Project”.

    There is also https://rightsidepac.com/news , and https://43alumniforjoebiden.com/ , and https://rvat.org/ .

    Basically it must be what’s left of what used to be the Republican Party, instead of the t rumpamania that has replaced it, aka, the RepugLIARs Party.
