1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump has totally bonkers late night meltdown

  •

Donald Trump spent Wednesday slamming his fist down on the table and yelling “bye-bye” at Nancy Pelosi, before he stormed out of the room and then tweeted the words “bye-bye” just for effect. Most Americans were hoping this was some kind of resignation letter, but alas, he’s still illegally occupying the White House for now. However, the day went so horribly for him, he ended up having a late night meltdown that was – in his words – “totally bonkers.”



Trump didn’t like the fact that the mainstream media dared to do its job on Wednesday by reporting on just how poorly this shutdown debacle is going for him, so he erupted with this late night gem: “The Mainstream Media has NEVER been more dishonest than it is now. NBC and MSNBC are going Crazy. They report stories, purposely, the exact opposite of the facts. They are truly the Opposition Party working with the Dems. May even be worse than Fake News CNN, if that is possible!” Then it got weirder.




Even as Donald Trump is publicly claiming that the Republicans in Congress are united behind him on his government shutdown suicide mission, he admitted the opposite behind closed doors. It’s not clear that Trump understands how the concept of “off the record” works, because he posted this after members of his own party appeared to leak his desperate words: “Gave an OFF THE RECORD luncheon, somewhat of a White House tradition or custom, to network anchors yesterday – and they quickly leaked the contents of the meeting. Who would believe how bad it has gotten with the mainstream media, which has gone totally bonkers!”



So there you have it. Donald Trump is accusing others of having gone “totally bonkers” which based on his consistent habit of projection, means that he knows he’s gone totally bonkers. He then declared that his approval rating is at its highest level ever, when back in the real world, it’s near its lowest point ever.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Matthew Whitaker’s life just got ripped to pieces

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


Whatever Matthew Whitaker was hoping to accomplish when he agreed to illegally become Donald Trump’s Acting Attorney General, it’s all over now. Whitaker still technically holds the title, though it’s clear that Mueller and Rosenstein have scared him into not interfering with the Trump-Russia probe. But now Whitaker just got rung up on his worst fear – and his life is about to be altered drastically.



The House Judiciary Committee, now under the control of the Democrats, has announced that Matthew Whitaker is its very first investigative target. Whitaker has been trying to hide behind the Department of Justice and Donald Trump’s government shutdown in order to avoid testifying, but nothing works that way, and so the Democrats will subpoena him if he doesn’t show up, according to Politico. So why is this so horrible for him?




Congressional subpoenas are legally binding. If Matthew Whitaker doesn’t show up, he’ll be held in contempt and arrested. So he can either choose to go that route, or he can show up and answer questions in front of the television cameras. During his testimony he’ll have to confess to the obstruction crimes he’s witnessed Donald Trump committing, and he’ll have to answer questions about his own patent scam endeavors.



While the House Judiciary Committee doesn’t directly bring criminal charges based on testimony, it can (and will) make a criminal referral to ensure that Matthew Whitaker gets rung up on all of the crimes he’s committed, both for Trump, and for himself. Whitaker had a short window of time to resign and disappear before the Democrats decided to destroy him, but that window has closed. Whitaker is the committee’s Target #1, and his life is now over.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Donald Trump | The Guardian: Trump’s threat to cut California wildfire relief leaves state officials baffled

He criticized the state for ‘forest management’, a claim that was debunked and admonished the last time he made it

Donald Trump’s latest threat to cut relief funds for California areas impacted by deadly wildfires has left state lawmakers and residents baffled.

“Billions of dollars are sent to the State of California for Forest fires that, with proper Forest Management, would never happen [sic]” he tweeted, correcting the spelling of “forest” from a previous and identically worded tweet that has since been deleted. “Unless they get their act together, which is unlikely, I have ordered FEMA to send no more money. It is a disgraceful situation in lives & money!”

FEMA funds go to:
– Emergency housing
– Food/water/first-aid/infant formula/fuel
– Disaster Recovery Centers
– Debris removal

Trump is directly threatening lives and our economy over an ignorant position on forest management that experts & firefighters have told him is wrong https://t.co/ABxCsQbHA2

Californians endured the deadliest wildfire in our state’s history last year. We should work together to mitigate these fires by combating climate change, not play politics by threatening to withhold money from survivors of a deadly natural disaster. pic.twitter.com/uMopf0Z05i

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump Jr goes berserk as he’s revealed as the first House Intel Committee subpoena target

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


If you’ve been paying attention to Donald Trump Jr’s social media posts on sites like Instagram over the past few days, he’s been even more unhinged and inappropriate than usual. It’s been enough to lead us to wonder if he’s known something about his impending fate that we don’t. Now it turns out the first House Intelligence Committee subpoena has his name on it.



Democratic Congresswoman Jackie Speier, who sits on the House Intel Committee, revealed at a book signing last night that the committee’s first subpoena is going to Donald Trump Jr. While Speier isn’t the committee chair, she’s highly influential and politically savvy, and she wouldn’t say something like this unless the committee had already firmly decided upon it.




Nor, for that matter, would Congresswoman Speier publicly reveal such a thing unless it’s coming very, very soon. Chairman Adam Schiff has already publicly stated that he and his fellow Democrats will reopen the committee’s investigation into the Trump-Russia criminal conspiracy. When the Republicans controlled the committee, they conducted a “probe” into the scandal, but purposely sabotaged their own investigation so they could falsely declare that everyone involved was innocent.



So has Donald Trump Jr known for the past few days that he’s the House Intel Committee’s first subpoena target? Is this the reason for his nearly rubber-room level behavior online of late? Or has he merely sensed that the hammer was about to drop on him? In any case, Junior is already guaranteed to go to prison for perjury, along with a whole host of treason-like charges. Even if his father manages to successfully pardon him, which is unlikely, New York state will put Junior in prison. His life is over. No wonder he’s gone completely off the deep end.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Everyone piles on after Donald Trump’s ‘Forrest Gump’ meltdown

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


There are a thousand things more objectionable about Donald Trump than the fact that he’s semi-illiterate. But at a time when we need all the help we can get when it comes to finishing him off before he can finish America off, it can’t hurt to lampoon him when he makes the kinds of ridiculous spelling errors that leave us all laughing at the pathetic traitor. Now he’s done it again.



See if you can spot where Donald Trump went so horribly wrong here: “Billions of dollars are sent to the State of California for Forrest fires that, with proper Forrest Management, would never happen. Unless they get their act together, which is unlikely, I have ordered FEMA to send no more money. It is a disgraceful situation in lives & money!”




That’s right, Donald Trump tried to tweet about forest fires, but ended up tweeting about Forrest Gump instead. It set off a thousand jokes along the lines of “Forrest Trump” and “Stupid is as stupid does.” Hours later, Trump – or perhaps one of his few remaining staffers – finally deleted the errant tweet and tried again.



In reality, Trump is making the psychotic threat to simply let California burn the next time there’s a forest fire in the state, no matter how many Americans might die in the process. This tweet alone is impeachable. Trump can’t actually carry through with a threat like this, but we can certainly make fun of him for not even being able to spell the thing he’s making empty threats about.
