Does signing you name to something you neither read nor wrote count as work?

"Proactive?" President Proactive just put a mask on when the rest of us have been wearing them for months.

Tell you what Donnie, you focus on everything else and see if people think you presidentin' good or if they think you're ignoring COVID.

Deregulate the amount of tear gas that can be sprayed in a city?
Increase the amount of soot particulate in the atmosphere?
Classify criticism of Donald Trump as hate speech?

"Look, I'm working!"

Every executive order has been a dumpster fire and never worked. I think maybe the one banning bump stocks worked, but things that work piss off his shrinking base, so he can't have that.

Every order has to be some paper thin rationale that gets destroyed in the courts to both make it look like he's doing something and also being the victim. No one but his dwindling base falls for it anymore.

He's going to declare COVID-19 an enemy combatant and anyone harboring it may be subject to treason charges.*

*in California and New York

/Leadership!

WhackingDay: Of course, that's how he thinks presidenting works.


This right here.  His idea of being a "boss" or "in charge" or "a leader" is telling people to do all the things they were already doing. The blank stares are a sign that they are overwhelmed with the brilliance of decision making ability.

He's not alone in this thinking, a lot of people in positions of power think being a strong leader is making decisions from the rear.

The president who couldn't pass anything with a willing Congress is going to piss on the floor on his way out of office with some poorly written executive orders that won't survive a court challenge.

On April 7, when COVID was ravaging the country, Trump issued an executive order to encourage Moon mining.

Gaze upon humanity in its most perfect form. The dingy pus-colored hair. The vivid rotten orange facial coloring which indicates high levels of testosterone and beta-carotene. The puffy pink eyes which allow for enhanced facial expressions, including leers, pouts, squints, smirks, and seething anger. Always seething anger. The contrasting ghostly pale palms of the hands aid in signaling to other members of the tribe across long distances. This fascinating subject requires more observation, though most researchers sent to study it eventually kill themselves for unknown reasons.

So that's why his hands look small.

I am firmly of the opinion that once a President is impeached, they should have their powers limited.  Certainly to the extent of, no more pardons, and no more EOs.

I know...  Not in this timeline.  But it is one of the things that needs to be repaired once Trumpleforeskin is gone.

You know, Lepetomane was actually a better leader than Trump. At least when Lepetomane saw that his constituents were in trouble, he had the sense to at least feign concern to save his phoney baloney job. Trump went golfing.

'adding that the White House counsel's office is confident that the president is on solid legal ground.'

Now that's some funny shiat.

Trump wishes he could just declare bankruptcy on this whole 'Coronavirus' thing, and then tell you that he made a ton of money off of it, and it was a huge success for him.

No, no, too many color choices. You'll make him short circu--you know what, give him all the colors.
 
2020-07-21 12:32:54 PM  
Reminder that this is all being justified by the fact John Too threw a hissy fit that the Supreme Court found the Trump administration did not follow proper procedures in rolling back DACA so he wrote an article saying "screw it, then they are claiming Presidents rule by official proclamation if Obama could set it up on his own but procedures had to be followed to shut it down" and the Trump Administration is waving it around saying "it says here the Supreme Court just told us the president can proclaim anything he wants and it is legal! Thank you Supreme Court!"

Trump is trying to be a dictator and he is succeeding because he knows the Republicans in Congress won't stand up to him.  It's time for Congress to seize power by forming a veto-proof coalition that will pass legislation to stop Trump in his tracks.
 
2020-07-21 12:34:48 PM  
This is related to the John Yoo article published over the weekend. It's no lose for DrumpsterFire to rule by decree. Either the EO stands because of the DACA ruling or it's in place until the clock runs out. He's following the Mr. Burns healthcare strategy, but with EO's. Even if he loses in November, the DACA ruling said EO's have to be undone following a process thereby extending the EO's life.

The greatest republican "leader" of our time.

Close down the entire farking country and make masks mandatory. Fund the CDC instead of cutting funding.

Just for starters you assclown.
