The Apocalypse Day 22…..

img_6154

So we are on day 22 of the Trump transition, and what we have learned is not much different that what we knew from his campaign.  In the last few days, I guess frustrated by Jill Stein stealing his headlines with her recount efforts, Trump tweets that there was massive voter fraud, a story he made up out of whole cloth, and one that no one has supported him on so far.  Fast forward to yesterday, Trump basically forgot or chose to ignore civics basic 101, when after watching Fox News in which they had a segment about flag burning, Trump tweets flag burners should lose citizenship & do a year of jail time.  Once again showing how ill equipped he is to do the job and moreover how little control anyone has over the mad tweeter.

 Meanwhile, as this is going on, Trump is assembling his version of the Billionaire Boys club, with 4 billionaires and counting in his cabinet and 3 former Goldman Sachs executives, so much for draining the swamp, looks more like a re-stock, except so far very few of these people are in any way qualified to do the job they are charged with doing.  The latest rumors from Trump Tower has Sarah Palin in line for a possible cabinet post, Secretary of Veterans Affairs.  You know it’s bad when you hear Palin’s name and think it could be worse, at least she has worked in state government at one point. Lastly but not least is Trumps flirtation with Mitt Romney.  Romney far & away would be the most qualified member of Trump’s team if appointed, and the most ready to the job on day one.  Romney has success in high levels of business & government, and the type of experience this cabinet & team desperately need.  I still think Romney is a long shot to fill the post of Secretary of State, but hey maybe we get one Christmas miracle from Trump & Co.

The Village Idiot POTUS Elect

Proving once again that he has no ideas about american laws & our constitution, Donald J. Trump had this wing dinger of a tweet today. Which shows once again how in over his head he really is & how he isn’t in touch with what a democracy really is. Whether we agree with flag burning or not, that right is protected by the same laws that protect religious freedoms & those precious gun laws conservatives are always spouting off about.

Recount!!!

  If the recount filed in Wisconsin caused Donald Trump so much consternation, what’s another one in Pennsylvania going to do for the delicate President. Jill Stein, made it official a few minutes ago, filing for a recount in Pennsylvania!

The Great Conductor….

One thing Donald J. Trump is great at is manipulating the press, he is like a conductor of a symphony. When his horrible Access Hollywood tape was revealed & the subsequent sexual harassment accusations that followed, Trump started this weird drumbeat of its rigged. During the last debate he doubled down on it, saying he wouldn’t concede, and that became what people were talking about-the press.  

Friday, Trump settled a lawsuit he said many, many many times he would NEVER settle. It was a headline for less than 12 hours, until his Twitter war with the Broadway cast of Hamilton & SNL started. 

One of the main reasons Trump is President is because the press didn’t know how to cover him as a candidate. Now that he is President, they need to learn & learn fast.

The Trump Chump Wagon….

It’s been a hell of a week for Donald Trump & Co.  It started with his selection for chief strategist, the “alt right” Steve Bannon.  From there, rumors have been flying that Trump & his team are trying to figure a role for his son in law in the White House.  That’s right, the same son in law, Jared Kushner that’s married to Ivanka Trump.  I’m sure there is no conflict of interest there, right? Ivanka will run Trump’s international business and her husband works at the White House for Dad, seems like a blind trust to me, emphasis on Americans being blind with their trust.

Trump had two rapid fire selections in the last 24 hours, the first being Gen. Mike Flynn being offered the National Security Advisor job, a role that will not need Senate confirmation.  Flynn’s most recent work  was paid speeches in Russia for Putin.  I guess as long as Hillary isn’t the one giving the speeches, republicans are ok with it.  Trump’s next pick was for Attorney General, and it was long time Trump backer, Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions.  Session’s will be confirmed I’m sure, but he has also had the same problem most people Trump surrounds himself with, racially charged comments.  In Session’s case, he was rejected by the Senate in the late 80’s for a federal judgeship.  Expect his hearing to be bumpy.

What comes next is anyone’s guess, the list for Secretary of State seems to growing, not getting smaller.  It has ranged from the good, bad & the ugly.  Everyone from John Bolton, to Nikki Haley, to Mitt Romney, with several unnamed candidates in the mix.  Whatever comes will be as scary & entertaining as everything else this clown as down this year.
