The Trump Adminstration WTF?!

Pro-Trump Minister Gets Slammed For Claiming POTUS Is Good For Blacks (VIDEO)

Here’s a question that should be easy for anyone with even a shred of logic and honesty to answer: What has Donald Trump done for African-Americans since becoming president?

The answer, of course, is NOTHING!

But Mark Burns, a so-called pastor who loves Trump almost as much as he does his Bible, appeared on MSNBC Saturday and was at first stumped, then enraged when asked that simple question.

During a discussion of praise from rapper Kanye West for Trump this week, Burns remarked:

“It shouldn’t be a Kanye controversy because he supports President Donald Trump. We should be applauding him being a free thinking black man who believes President Trump has policies, whether you like him personally or not, his policy is the best thing that’s for black Americans in this country”

Yep, it’s the old “black unemployment is low” argument, which is all well and good, but then again, it doesn’t address the underlying issue of how Trump really sees black Americans. And fellow guest Rev. Al Sharpton pointed out that fact to Burns:

“Let me jump in, and Pastor Burns and I do talk and are friendly. But I would say that even though I don’t fall out with Kanye or Pastor Burns, they should name the policies. If you claim the Democratic Party put blacks in the back of the bus, then they ought to name the policies of Donald Trump that has helped black America.

“So, show me in any instance where the president has reached out to do anything with black America.”


Since there isn’t a single instance for him to cite, Burns got defensive, and then became combative:

“What’s important for the viewers to understand it is by the sweat of my brow that I am where I am. A man who was once on welfare. writing a book right now called ‘From Welfare To The White House.’  I was on food stamps. I’ve been arrested. I know what it is like to feel belittled because of the color of your skin.”

Sharpton then used facts to eviscerate Pastor Burns, reminding him:

“This president [Trump] and Jeff Sessions said we will not protect the voting rights, we’re closing down the Affordable Care Act if we can. And we are not dealing with police matters. specifically, You have mass incarceration right now, because of the policies of others. I can name you from Johnson all the way through on the policies that Democrats have put through.”

Burns began shouting and pointing at Sharpton, but he again failed to give a response to the question of what exactly Trump has done for black Americans. He also failed to answer the pesky question of how “no one ever gave him anything” if he was on welfare.

How typical! Burns and his fellow Trumpkins love to talk up their orange hero, but when you ask them for specifics, they get their feelings hurt and go into attack mode.

What has Donald Trump done for anyone other than himself, his family, his business, or his rich friends? Not a damn thing.

5 Undisputed Facts About The Russia Probe That Spell Doom For Donald Trump

In a desperate attempt to provide a sliver of cover for Donald Trump, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee issued a one-sided report Friday that exonerates Trump of any wrongdoing regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election, despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary.

But while Trump and the GOP stage their one-act play of desperation, the formal investigation being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller continues, and the information Mueller’s team has already managed to find suggests Trump and several of his associates (along with Republican members of Congress) will likely be charged with serious crimes when the probe is complete.

Here’s five facts that show Trump and his apologists are swimming against a tide of evidence that will soon overtake them and leave them gasping for air:

1. The Trump Tower Meeting

In June of 2016, top Trump campaign officials — Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort — met with Russian officials, including attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya, to discuss “dirt” the Russians had on Hillary Clinton.

On Friday, Veselnitskaya admitted she has extensive ties to the Kremlin, despite her previous statements in which she denied any such links:

“I am a lawyer, and I am an informant. Since 2013, I have been actively communicating with the office of the Russian prosecutor general.”

2. Trump’s Admission

Trump told NBC anchor Lester Holt that he did indeed fire FBI Director James Comey due to the FBI investigation of Russia. Trump admitted:

“And in fact when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said ‘you know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story, it’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won’.”

3. Kushner Tries To Establish Back Channel To Russia

During the transition, Jared Kushner, who now works as a senior adviser to Trump, tried to establish “a secret communications channel” between the Trump team and Moscow.

4. Flynn’s Lies

Disgraced former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn had discussions with the Russian ambassador during the transition for the purpose of talking about U.S. sanctions on Russia. He later lied to Mike Pence about what he’d done. But are we supposed to believe Trump knew nothing about Flynn’s efforts?

5. The Air Force One Excuse

When the infamous Trump Tower meeting with Russian officials came to light, Trump sat on Air Force One and helped craft a bogus excuse that suggested the meeting had been to discuss the issue of Americans adopting Russian orphans. The Kremlin had put a halt to such adoptions in response to American sanctions on their country.

All of this suggests that Trump will be charged with numerous crimes, as former Assistant Attorney General Jimmy Gurulé laid out during an appearance on MSNBC, telling Brian Williams he believes the evidence supports charging Trump with:

  • Obstruction of justice
  • Violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act
  • Violations of the Federal Election Campaign Act dealing with fundraising
  • Violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act
  • Violations of IRS and tax law
  • Money laundering

Trump’s remaining time in office is limited. Mueller moves closer to bringing him down with each passing day.

Trump Opened His Big Mouth On Television And Walked Right Into Mueller’s Trap

Donald Trump desperately wants to be thought of as intelligent and competent, but then he starts talking and you quickly realize this is a man who’s all flash and no substance; a moron who pretends to have a clue.

Take, for example, the rambling half-hour interview Trump gave Thursday morning on Fox & Friends. It ranged over a plethora of topics, including the withdrawal of his VA nominee, Michael Cohen, James Comey, the Department of Justice, the Russia investigation, Robert Mueller, and other assorted topics Trump thought it a good idea to pontificate on.

At one point during the Fox interview, Trump referenced the ongoing Russia probe and was asked if he planned to sit down for an interview with Mueller. He responded:

“Well, if I can. The problem is that it’s such a—if you take a look, they’re so conflicted, the people that are doing the investigation. You have 13 people that are Democrats, you have Hillary Clinton people, you have people that worked on Hillary Clinton’s foundation. They’re all—I don’t mean Democrats. I mean, like, the real deal. And then you look at the phony Lisa Page and [Peter] Strzok and the memos back and forth and the F.B.I.—and by the way, you take a poll at the F.B.I. I love the F.B.I.; the F.B.I. loves me. But the top people at the F.B.I., headed by Comey, were crooked.”

The irony of a con man like Donald Trump calling other people “crooked” is enough to make you do a double-take and throw up in your mouth a little bit.


He followed that demented soliloquy with this:

“You look at the corruption at the top of the F.B.I.—it’s a disgrace. And our Justice Department—which I try and stay away from, but at some point I won’t—our Justice Department should be looking at that kind of stuff, not the nonsense of collusion with Russia. There is no collusion with me, and everyone knows it.”

Those two statements gave Special Counsel Robert Mueller exactly what he needs to prove that not only has Trump already obstructed justice, he has plans to do so again. And that’s significant.

In order to be charged with obstruction of justice under federal law, there has to be proof of what’s called “corrupt intent.” In other words, if you just so happen to interfere with an investigation but had no intention of doing so, there’s a chance you won’t be charged, and even if you are, you have a way for your attorney to place doubt in the mind of a jury.

But if there’s corrupt intent — if a prosecutor can prove you meant to hinder an investigation, prosecution, or other legal proceeding — you’ve just handed yourself over on the proverbial silver platter.

On Thursday, on national TV, Trump managed to seal the deal for Mueller’s obstruction of justice case against him. And it’s a safe bet that Trump still doesn’t understand just how badly he screwed himself with that one appearance on his favorite morning show.

Here’s the entire Fox segment that helped seal Trump’s fate:

Corruption The Trump Adminstration

Fox News Host: Time For Trump To Give EPA Chief Scott Pruitt The Boot (VIDEO)

If there’s one member of the Trump administration that makes a complete mockery of Donnie Dollhand’s campaign promise that he’d “drain the swamp” if elected, it’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) head Scott Pruitt.

Since being appointed by Trump, Pruitt has spent taxpayer money on a sound proof phone booth in his office, traveled on the public dime via charter planes, and rented a room at a condo in Washington from a lobbyist who has business before the very agency Pruitt oversees.

On Sunday, New Jersey Republican Congressman Frank LoBiondo became the fifth member of Trump’s party to call for Pruitt to be removed from his post, commenting:

“EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt should resign. Wrong fit from start for agency dedicated to protecting our environment.”

And now even Fox “News” is ready to dump Pruitt, with L.A.-based Fox News host Steve Hilton saying on his show:

“What we need is for President Trump to take the lead, fire Scott Pruitt, and throw out the lobbyists from his administration.”

Sadly, Hilton’s words will likely fall on deaf ears at the White House.


During an appearance on Meet the Press Sunday, White House legislative director Marc Short was asked about the many scandals swirling around Pruitt, and he reiterated the president’s support for the EPA administrator:

“Scott Pruitt is doing a phenomenal job and the president is happy with him.”

Yeah, he’s doing a phenomenal job of being a greedy, self-absorbed extremist conservative who wants to see all regulations removed and the public left at the mercy of rapacious corporations who long to pollute and poison all of us with impunity. And while he’s at it, Pruitt is also gonna make sure and take plenty of money out of the public coffers that are filled with our tax dollars. Have yourself a damn party, Scott! Be sure and send us the tab!

Donald Trump is a con man who surrounds himself with criminals, and the proof can be found in the person of Scott Pruitt, who simply cannot understand why we’re all so upset that he’s a crook.

WATCH: Moronic Trumpkin Gets Schooled Discussing DNC Lawsuit Against POTUS

Isn’t it amazing just how fragile and whiny Trump supporters are when the subject turns to lawsuits or other legal action against their orange savior?

On MSNBC Saturday afternoon, the topic was a suit filed Friday by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) against the 2016 Trump campaign, WikiLeaks, Russia, and other entities which helped assure Donald Trump won thanks to the Electoral College, even though he actually lost the popular vote by some 3 million ballots.

Host David set the stage for the debate, announcing:

“This is a 66-page document, among the names in this suit, Julian Assange, Donald Trump, Jr., Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, Jared Kushner, George Papadopoulos, Richard W. Gates — names that are now familiar to a lot of us.”

Fox News mainstay Jen Kerns had this to say in response:

“I think this is sad, I think this shows that the DNC is still not able to get over the 2016 election. You start to doubt what the American people did, you start to tell the American people that their choice of president was wrong in 2016, I think that’s the wrong direction to go.”


Former Hillary Clinton advisor Philippe Reines was more than ready for Kerns, commenting:

“I would love to hear from Jen the answer to a simple question: What on earth is this president — and this Republican Congress — doing and protect our elections?

“And that’s what I think this lawsuit comes down to and it’s a last resort,” he continued. “If the Republican-controlled Congress would have had any committee hearings or any legislation or anything at all to follow-up on its own intelligence, there would be no need to file a lawsuit.”

In response, Kerns managed to shoot herself right in the foot:

“I think a lot has been done. You have Kris Kobach is doing an analysis with each of the Secretaries of States throughout the states. I was an Assistant Secretary of State in California, tasked with ensuring the integrity of the votes.”

Kris Kobach? Really? The head of Trump’s so-called Commission on Election Integrity has been the subject of numerous controversies and specializes in putting up obstacles to people voting.

Raines destroyed Kerns by telling her:

“Jen, with all due respect, when you’re answering the question with Kris Kobach right off the bat, you are absolutely making my point.

“This lawsuit is the only thing that Donald Trump cannot fire and that’s why it’s being filed.”
