It turns out that Donald Trump is into recycling...[img]https://twitter.com/stom01/status/427026438647447552/photo/1[/img]. After all, he's been recycling the same lies for over a year and rehashed them all for John Dickerson for Face the Nation, and for his "base " in PA.

Conservatives have over the last 30 years cultivated a set of consistently inspiring memes with which to attack everyone else. Mr Trump is not creative enough to expand that set thus we should expect continuous repetition of old memes, lies, and in general nonsensical statements.

Tired of winning? ahhh .... well .... I am tired of the lies.

The national shame tour continues. THANKGOD Trump is leaving Europe... OH NO! He's heading back here. Can't we put him in holding at JFK?!!

It has gotten increasingly painful - who knew it could get worse? - watching his "performance" on the world stage. I thought that GWB was as bad as it could get. But nothing really prepares one for something as awful as Trump. The gross incompetence and sheer assholitude of he and his cabal of nincompoops is constantly astounding. Mick Mulvaney rolls out a budget that makes no sense and tries to defend double-counting two trillion dollars of mistakes based on imaginary numbers (Lawrence Summers called the oversight an "elementary double count" and "a logical error of the kind that would justify failing a student in an introductory economics course" WaPo.) Instead of creating a $3-5 Trillion dollar hole, Mulvaney claims the tax cuts will pay for themselves twice. I thought magic mushrooms were illegal, General Sessions? His "defense" insulted virtually everyone who has ears and his excuses for breathtakingly curmudgeonly excess made Scrooge look like Mother Theresa.

Then came May 25... What David Frum (that bastion of liberal politics) described as Trump's Moral Holiday, combined four dishearteningly commonplace events of "Trumpism" on one day: Trump's NATO speech, Jared Kushner's efforts to create a Russian "back door" to the President was exposed (apparently in exchange for financing for his failing 666 project), active collusion by GOP operatives were detailed by the Wall Street Journal, and GOP pols fell over themselves defending Greg Gianforte's unprovoked beating of a journalist - including blatantly lying about it to the press.

The first step in our 12-step recovery from Trump begins with "Admitting to ourselves we were powerless over Trump-induced depravity - that our lives have become unmanageable." I have no mouth but I must scream.

Oops President Trump lied once again!

@real Donald Trump (<--- click to read Tweet)

According to Fortune.com

Quote:
“there weren’t any large financial agreements announced at the NATO summit or other public deals on Trump’s trip that dealt with ‘billions of dollars.'”

Nor were there any agreements, discussions, or deals that would have saved “millions” of American jobs, which is obviously a ridiculously hyperbolic figure with absolutely no relation to reality.

We already witnessed Idiocracy going from being a comedy to a documentary in less than a decade. Now, every year is a decade, seemingly, and the worst case scenario is found in The Handmaid's Tale, which is about to become reality.
And I don't think we will wake up in time to stop the juggernaut.

President Pence will be our pastor-president once the Right is finished lapping up all that Trump gravy.

Then the whip will come down.

I'm getting really tired of our Democrat Presidents having to clean-up the sh!t of Republican Presidents.

There will be no 'President Pence.' Pence lied about knowing that Flynn was a foreign agent. Paul Ryan will be President.

And after Paul Ryan comes Orrin Hatch.

It takes six deaths or impeachments before you get to Mattis, who might be reasonable.

But seriously, I don't think Pence has done all that much in the way of High Crimes: He may have done some stupid things and a few things that are ordinary crimes, but has not really done anything like abuse of his office that could get him impeached.

Just knowing something and not telling is not, unless you lie under oath or to the FBI in order to obstruct justice.

Long before 2018 we will witness the last five states ratify their intent to hold a Constitutional Convention.
At that point, Pence, all his theocrat buddies (like Gianforte in Montana) and the billionaire class of Kochs, Mercers and their peers WILL REWRITE the Constitution and America will transform into a one party theocratic fascist authoritarian state.
The Handmaid's Tale (Amazon) is not just a movie, it's a blueprint for our future.
