Ivanka Trumps week from Hell

Donald Trump is having a mighty bad week, with Republican Senator Bob Corker opening the floodgates against him by acknowledging that he’s a dangerous whack job. Mike Pence is having an even worse week, as his NFL game walkout stunt was exposed as having been dishonestly staged. But someone else in the White House is having the worst week of all, and it just got even worse for her: Ivanka Trump, who’s having a week from Hell.

Over the past week it’s been revealed that Ivanka Trump improperly used a personal email account for White House government business and that when she got caught, she tried to cover it up by moving her personal email account to a private email server (link). This means she’s guilty of an actual email scandal, as opposed to the imaginary “email scandal” that her father helped invent about Hillary Clinton. Even as investigators close in on her and Congress seeks to revoke her security clearance, something even uglier went wrong for her.

Ivanka Trump’s mother Ivana Trump unloaded on Ivanka’s stepmother Melania Trump today in bizarre fashion. Ivana declared “I’m first lady” because she was Donald Trump’s first wife. She then said the only reason she doesn’t call Donald at the White House is so Melania won’t get jealous (link). Ivana is promoting a new book, and is seeking to stir up controversy accordingly. But she’s thrown a whole new monkey wrench into the dynamic of America’s trashiest family, and it’s put Ivanka right at the center of it.

Imagine if your mom and your stepmom were publicly feuding with each other, at a time when you had a job inside the house where your stepmom lives. That’s the situation Ivanka Trump now finds herself in. As this white trash family feud plays out in her face, Ivanka is also trying to fend off investigators on all sides.

The post Ivanka Trump’s week from Hell appeared first on Palmer Report.

Lindsey Grahams dangerous new game with Donald Trump

One day after influential Republican Senator Bob Corker stated that Donald Trump is mentally unstable and he’s going to get us all killed, the political world awaited the reaction of Corker’s fellow Republicans. None of them said anything to support or refute Corker’s assertions, which was expected as they continue to function like deer in the headlights. But one Republican Senator did respond by deciding to play a different kind of game with Trump.

Lindsey Graham and Donald Trump went golfing together today. This is strange for a few reasons. First, Trump never does this kind of thing. He’s spent zero time trying to build relationships with anyone in Congress, even within his own party, beyond his own handful of corruptible puppets. Moreover, this seems to have been hastily thrown together at the very last minute. Why on a Monday? Why not when Trump was staying at one of his own golf resorts over the weekend? Why not wait til next weekend? Something is suddenly and urgently afoot. Finally, Graham’s tweets afterward are bizarre.

Graham tweeted “Really enjoyed a round of golf with President Donald Trump today. President Trump shot a 73 in windy and wet conditions! How bad did he beat me? I did better in the presidential race than today on the golf course! Great fun. Great host.” (link). Let’s be clear about a few things here. The average professional golfer shoots a 73 in wet and windy conditions. Trump has never shot anything close to a 73 in his life. Trump has a low golf handicap, but only because he consistently cheats. We know this because Samuel L. Jackson once golfed with Trump, and he say Trump cheated the entire time (link). So why is Lindsey Graham going out of his way to lie about Trump’s golf score? There’s a reason for this kind of behavior.

Lindsey Graham is bending over backward to try to butter Trump up. The most effective way to manipulate a narcissist is to enthusiastically buy into the flattering lies that the narcissist tells himself. Trump wants to pretend he legitimately shot a 73 today? Graham is willing to shout that lie. This can’t be about the health care bill. That’s the only thing these two are already on the same page about. Graham is trying to win Trump’s favor and trust. It’s coming the day after Graham’s Senate Republican colleague Corker declared war on Trump, so you have to ask yourself if they just might be up to something.

“Doomed: even Donald Trumps allies admit that his latest meltdown is destroying him

Lashing out. Unraveling. Rupturing. Doomed. These are the words that Donald Trump’s own allies and advisers are now using to describe him and his presidency, in a stunning new expose which reveals just how damaged Trump has become, and how much additional damage he’s specifically done to himself over the past few days as he’s staged his most deranged meltdown yet.

Trump has “torched bridges all around him” in the last few days, according to a new insider piece in the Washington Post. It helps to confirm what has appeared to be the case from the outside: Trump is now in more rapid and chaotic decline than ever before. Moreover, he’s self destructing by alienating the allies he has left and picking fights he can’t win. One Trump ally is going so far as to say that “His presidency could be doomed.” It somehow gets even worse than this for Trump.

We’ve all seen Trump and Republican Senator Bob Corker get into a public battle over the past few days, which Corker can’t lose because he’s not running for reelection anyway. But it doesn’t appear to have been Corker who sent Trump into the downward spiral over the weekend. Instead, Trump appears to have taken himself there, because he’s melting down of his own accord. John Kelly is preventing him from having the kind of miscreant fun that keeps him from going fully off the deep end.

Palmer Report predicted that John Kelly would end up unwittingly helping to destroy the Trump presidency by “fixing” it, because he’s gotten rid of all the loose cannons and wackos whom Trump enjoyed working with. Trump never wanted this job; he only wanted to win. As he continues to become even more miserable, his breakdown is accelerating. Read the Washington Post article (link).
