He urged a foreign country to intervene in the 2016 presidential election.

He divulged classified information to foreign officials.

He publicly undermined American intelligence agents while standing next to a hostile foreign autocrat.

He hired a national security adviser who he knew had secretly worked as a foreign lobbyist.

He encourages foreign leaders to enrich him and his family by staying at his hotels.

He genuflects to murderous dictators.

He has alienated America’s closest allies.

He lied to the American people about his company’s business dealings in Russia.

He tells new lies virtually every week — about the economy, voter fraud, even the weather.

He spends hours on end watching television and days on end staying at resorts.

He often declines to read briefing books or perform other basic functions of a president’s job.

He has aides, as well as members of his own party in Congress, who mock him behind his back as unfit for office.

He has repeatedly denigrated a deceased United States senator who was a war hero.

He insulted a Gold Star family — the survivors of American troops killed in action.

He described a former first lady, not long after she died, as “nasty.”

He described white supremacists as “some very fine people.”

He told four women of color, all citizens and members of Congress, to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came.”

He made a joke about Pocahontas during a ceremony honoring Native American World War II veterans.

He launched his political career by falsely claiming that the first black president was not really American.

He launched his presidential campaign by describing Mexicans as “rapists.”

He has described women, variously, as “a dog,” “a pig” and “horseface,” as well as “bleeding badly from a facelift” and having “blood coming out of her wherever.”

He has been accused of sexual assault or misconduct by multiple women.

He enthusiastically campaigned for a Senate candidate who was accused of molesting multiple teenage girls.

He has called for his opponents and critics to be investigated and jailed.

He uses a phrase popular with dictators — “the enemy of the people” — to describe journalists.

He attempts to undermine any independent source of information that he does not like, including judges, scientists, journalists, election officials, the F.B.I., the C.I.A., the Congressional Budget Office and the National Weather Service.

He has tried to harass the chairman of the Federal Reserve into lowering interest rates.

He said that a judge could not be objective because of his Mexican heritage.

He has refused to release his tax returns.

He falsely accused his predecessor of wiretapping him.

He claimed that federal law-enforcement agents and prosecutors regularly fabricated evidence, thereby damaging the credibility of criminal investigations across the country.

He has ordered children to be physically separated from their parents.

He has suggested that America is no different from or better than Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

He has called America a “hellhole.”

He is the president of the United States, and he is a threat to virtually everything that the United States should stand for.



As usual, the New York Times nails it -- but I doubt it will change the pitiful trajectory one whit.


He's also wrecked America's trade agreements to cut the United States out of them and create opportunities for our competitors... Russia chief among them. He's created trade wars that destroy American businesses while creating more new opportunities for out competitors.

He's backed out of treaties which gave our enemies free reign, and benefited no one but Putin.

And he goes out of his way to encourage tribalism in the American people, setting American against American, creating hate, suspicion, and ill-will. He clearly favors states in his "tribe" while punishing the others.

And he rolls back regulations meant to protect the health of Americans, while also undercutting their health care. You'll get more toxic water, and less medical care to help you when you get sick.

Like I keep saying, if Trump isn't collaborating with the Russians, or is a Russian asset, it's pretty tough to see what he might be doing differently if he were. Other than the economy, which trend-lines prove is far more Obama's work than his, it's hard to really find anything Trump's done to help the United States.

But, idiots will keep wearing his hats and waving his flags because, haw haw, at least he pisses off them libtards and their black president! Rolling Eyes


I take that back -- as usual, ZSOMETHING nails it, and confirms nothing will change the pitiful trajectory, at least as to Trump's pitiful admirers.
