Donald Trump’s TIME Interview: Portrait of a Malevolent, Pathologically Dishonest Narcissist

“I’m president and you’re not.”
Politics • Views: 39,584

It’s become so commonplace for our so-called president to blatantly lie about things that are easily checked and debunked that it’s hard to label it “shocking” any more. But nonetheless, it really ought to be shocking that the leader of the United States is this unhinged and disconnected from anything like a normal reality.

This is a man with no center, a pure con man who cynically exploits the public.Politicians lie. That’s a cliché because we know it to be true. But Donald Trump doesn’t just lie like a normal politician, he reels off falsehoods with complete disregard for ethics, conscience or morality, and never acknowledges that he lied even when everyone can plainly see it. This is a man with no center, a pure con man who cynically exploits the public in a belief that he’s smarter than everyone else, and will never be held accountable. And he’s getting away with it, on the grandest scale imaginable.

This rant was evoked by Trump’s disgusting and disturbing interview published today by TIME, in which he revisits many of his most scurrilous lies and repeats them, never admitting any mistakes or even misstatements but insisting he was right.

He’s like a cheating husband who’s been caught red-handed but refuses to admit his misdeeds — but he’s doing this in front of the whole world, and deeply embarrassing the country he’s supposed to be leading. This is a guy who’s not just ignorant and egomaniacal, he’s proud of it.

Washington Post fact checker Glenn Kessler has a pretty complete rundown of the many outright lies in this interview, so I’ll refer you to that if you really need it proved once again that Trump is a dangerously unhinged prevaricator.

It’s also become a cliché to say the United States is in serious trouble with a venal narcissist like this in charge, but there it is. This disgraceful episode in our history can’t possibly end well.

His supporters don’t think any of this is embarassing. They support him precisely because he mirrors their own worldviews. He lies to their face that he’ll give them health coverage better than Obamacare, all while the GOP plan is so much worse than what existed before Obamacare.

These are the people who don’t realize ACA = Obamacare after all.

These are the people who believe Conway/Trump when they say that there was a Bowling Green Massacre.

These are the people who think that a wall with Mexico will improve their security and that Mexico will pay for it.

These are the people who think tax cuts for the rich will somehow help their own economic well being.

His support remains steadfast among Republicans, who think that there’s a conspiracy out to get him.

Let’s just ignore that he is under FBI investigation for his campaigns repeated contacts with Russians and possibly coordinating actions.

The same GOPers who demanded that nothing be done if Clinton won because she’s under a cloud of suspicion (and still not under FBI investigation) are having no problem with Trump nominating to the Supreme Court and are hoping he approves actions like the excremental AHCA that would, if passed, gut health care coverage for millions and gut Medicare/Medicaid.

He successfully marketed himself as the anti-politician, which has allowed him to flout or ignore nearly every rule and convention of campaigning, politics, governing and even of basic human decency. Which says more about his supporters than it does about him personally.

OK, terribly written tweet
My take, DoJ asked asked Ethics committee to hold off on their determination of Hunter’s actions while the DoJ does their thing…

Pursuant to Committee Rule 7(g), the Chairwoman and Ranking Member of the Committee on Ethics (Committee) determined on March 23, 2017, to release the following statement:

On August 31, 2016, the Committee on Ethics received a referral from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) regarding Representative Duncan Hunter. Pursuant to House Rule XI, clause 3(b)(8)(A) and Committee Rules 17A(b)(1)(A), 17A(c)(1) and 17A(j), the Chairman and Ranking Member jointly decided on December 15, 2016 to extend the Committee’s review of the matter.

The Department of Justice has asked the Committee to defer consideration of this matter and the Committee, following precedent, unanimously voted on March 22, 2017, to defer consideration of this matter at this time. Pursuant to Committee Rule 17A(h)(1), the Committee is making the OCE’s Report in this matter public. Under that rule, when the Committee votes to defer in this manner, it must release the Report, but not the Findings, along with a public statement announcing its deferral. At least annually, the Committee will make a public statement if it continues to defer taking action on the matter. The Committee notes that the mere fact of its decision to defer action on this matter, and any mandatory disclosure of that decision and the OCE’s Report, does not itself indicate that any violation has occurred.

Ex-Russia MP Denis Voronenkov killed in Ukraine: police

Former Russian member of parliament Denis Voronenkov has been shot dead in Ukraine’s capital, Kiev, according to Ukrainian authorities.

Kiev police chief Andriy Kryshchenko confirmed on Thursday in televised comments that “the identity of the dead man has been established” as the former politician.

Voronenkov had just left the Premier Palace Hotel in central Kiev when a man opened fire, a police spokesman said, adding that a bodyguard had managed to wound the attacker.

Voronenkov, 45, and his wife Maria Maksakova, also a former Russian politician, have been outspoken critics of Russia’s leadership.

They fled Russia last year amid allegations of criminal activity and received Ukrainian citizenship.

Voronenkov was considered a witness in Ukraine’s treason case against its former president, Viktor Yanukovych.

It’s a truism that all politicians lie, but the the thing about that is that politicians know not to lie TOO MUCH, in ways that are too easily exposed. So, mostly they tell the truth as much as possible, and also they speak in dogwhistles, and generalities, and weasel words

This last part, more than just lying, is what I think bothers The Average Joe most about politicians.

Trump doesn’t speak in dogwhistles, or generalities, or weasel words. He speaks bluntly. That bluntness is perceived as honesty, because he’s not sugar coating things, or equivocating. But unlike actual honesty, you cannot trust a single word he says, because he doesn’t know what’s true, he only knows what will work. And what works is to tell the WWC that their worst fears are true, and that he’s the only one who can fix it. If you’re desperate and, frankly, pretty stupid, that’s seductive.

If you’re forced to stick at least NEAR the truth, you can’t promise coal miners that they’ll get their jobs back, and they’ll be high-paying jobs with great benefits. You can only offer retraining and Medicaid expansion. It’s the truth, but it’s not as attractive. And if enough of your electorate is stupid and gullible, it works.

The Trumpers are a fucking cult. They say “Drain the swamp” but they don’t dare to admit that their ideology can be corrupt. Fact of the matter is this administration is corrupt as are many of its key allies. And that’s not a coincidence. Trump didn’t want to drain the swamp, he wanted the swamp for himself and his cronies.

re: #32 HappyWarrior

Looks like they’re also fucking around with the pre-existing condition ban too.

The Essential Health Benefits and the Prexisting Conditions Coverage are all of a piece - without the EHB, “health insurance” becomes a meaningless term. You could theoretically sell something as health insurance that literally covers nothing that people generally think of as healthcare, and you could sell it for just exactly the amount of the subsidy.

Lots of healthy people might opt for that, leaving those of us with preexisting conditions as the only ones buying coverage that actually does anything, making the pool for THOSE policies really, really costly, thereby jacking up premiums even more. Add to that the Age Rating in the AHCA, and you have a recipe for disaster - on the one hand actual coverage for those who need it will be prohibitively expensive, while on the other “insurance companies” will be raking in billions in subsidized premiums for fraudulent ‘coverage’.

All in all, EVEN WORSE than simple repeal, because you don’t go back to status quo ante, but rather to some new reality even worse.

It’s like the ‘Flashpoint’ timeline on “The Flash” - undoing your previous mucking around with the past doesn’t restore the timeline, but rather puts you in a whole new timeline.

This is exactly why Boehner and Obama kept failing to cut deals - the HFC’s negotiating style works the opposite of everyone else’s:

Obama would propose one thing - usually too far right to start, frankly.

Boehner would get together with the GOP caucus and come up with something worse.

Obama would agree to Boehner’s terms.

Boehner would go back to his caucus with that victory, and they’d say, “That’s not enough! Now we want this other thing, too!”

Jonathan Swift had a few things to say on the Art of political lying. thoughtco.com

Now who does this remind me of?

…In describing the virtues and vices of mankind, it is convenient, upon every article, to have some eminent person in our eye, from whom we copy our description. I have strictly observed this rule, and my imagination this minute represents before me a certain great man famous for this talent, to the constant practice of which he owes his twenty years’ reputation of the most skillful head in England, for the management of nice affairs.

The superiority of his genius consists in nothing else but an inexhaustible fund of political lies, which he plentifully distributes every minute he speaks, and by an unparalleled generosity forgets, and consequently contradicts, the next half hour. He never yet considered whether any proposition were true or false, but whether it were convenient for the present minute or company to affirm or deny it; so that if you think fit to refine upon him, by interpreting everything he says, as we do dreams, by the contrary, you are still to seek, and will find yourself equally deceived whether you believe or no; the only remedy is to suppose that you have heard some inarticulate sounds, without any meaning at all; and besides, that will take off the horror you might be apt to conceive at the oaths, wherewith he perpetually tags both ends of every proposition; although, at the same time, I think he cannot with any justice be taxed with perjury, when he invokes God and Christ, because he hath often fairly given public notice to the world that he believes in neither.

I’m inordinately fond of the full list of impeachable offenses given in the constitution: “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors”.

It is clear that the HFC, and the GOP generally, do not hold to the belief that you should not be punished for conditions that you have no control over, whether it’s a preexisting condition like cancer or hypertension, or just your gender. If you don’t want to pay more, choose your parents, or your gender, more carefully the next time you’re born.

Apology, non-apology time for Nunes:

House Intelligence Committee Democrats said Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) apologized to them Thursday during a closed-door meeting for his handling of revelations about surveillance that potentially could have been collected about President Trump and his associates during the transition period.

Nunes’s apology was “generic,” Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), a member of the Intelligence Committee, said on CNN, adding that it was “not clear” precisely which actions his apology covered.

It has to do with the leftist demonology of the Cold War. The same designated devils who opposed the Soviet Union, the US military, the FBI, and (most especially) the CIA, are also the ones who oppose Putin. Many of the very people are the same. Since they are evil, and right here in the country, he must be right and good. It is not about who is in the Kremlin, but who they see as the opposition.

I think you are going to see a lot of our enemies dead when the “deep state” tries to remove Trump and he calls for “patriot volunteers” to prevent it. He will get them, from gun stores, yokel police, military deserters, and fundy gun-churches all across the nation. Rational people and the constitutional forces will have to defend themselves. A lot of them will die, too, but I have no doubt at all about the outcome. How many of the tough guys in “Meal team six” are really willing to die for Alex Jones, for example?

From Minneapolis to Decatur, Georgia, Americans set up “political salons” to fight Trump.

Salons first gained fame in France during the Enlightenment, with citizens gathering to engage in political conversations and arguments; they acted as a place to plan revolution and discuss philosophy. The concept has continued ever since, with the author Gertrude Stein and the former secretary of state Madeleine Albright both known to have hosted them.

“I used the term salon to evoke old gatherings of artists and intellectuals in a hostess’s home,” said Mary Huber, founder of the Progressive Salon of Decatur. “Yep, Paris in the 1920s, recreated here in Decatur, Georgia,” she quipped.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe broke the record for most vetoes by a Virginia governor Thursday by vetoing two Republican-backed bills aimed at protecting religious groups that oppose same-sex marriage.

McAuliffe, a Democrat in the last year of his four-year term, vetoed the bills during a live radio appearance on Washington’s WTOP, calling them “another attempt to “stigmatize” LGBT Virginians.

“You already have religious protection. Why would you push this bill out that does absolute nothing?,” McAuliffe said. “All you’re doing is trying to divide people. And I”m just not going to tolerate it.”

I guess it just makes one pine for the days when right wingers said the Nazis were bad because they had socialist in their party name. I mean as fucked up as Glenn Beck was at his worst, he knew the Nazis were evil at least. Not saying much since he was stupid as hell about it.

They identify with the evil power of the Nazis. They are typically powerless but amoral people, often (though not always) in menial positions. They admire the Nazis not just for their power but for their immorality. Hitler’s lies about Czechoslovakia are seen not as depravity but as boldness, as the deserved victimization of soft-headed dupes. They especially admire his betrayal of Stalin, a kind of death match of evil.

Rational people are often exasperated that the right wing spectrum seems to be filled with people who are utterly oblivious to facts. This is not stupidity per se, though many of them are very stupid. It is not that they are too stupid to see Trump’s lies and inconsistencies, it is that they actually admire him for it. I recently had an Alex Jones Moon landing denier refuse to acknowledge it when I proved that he had been lied to about the distance to the Moon, a very simple fact that has been common knowledge since ancient times. He looked it up then flat out lied about what his source said.
These people are not dupes, they are evil and dishonest themselves, in a fundamental, personal sense. Such people have always existed but we live in a time when one political party, the formerly respectable GOP, has drawn them together under one tent and weaponized them into a political force.

WASHINGTON — U.S. Treasury Department agents have recently obtained information about offshore financial transactions involving President Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, as part of a federal anti-corruption probe into his work in Eastern Europe, The Associated Press has learned.

Information about Manafort’s transactions was turned over earlier this year to U.S. agents working in the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network by investigators in Cyprus at the U.S. agency’s request, a person familiar with the case said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to publicly discuss a criminal investigation.

Where in the fuck does that come from?

This used to be a conservative blog (before I got here).

That doesn’t mean Mr. Johnson is or was any sort of bigot, but a good number of people on the left seem to think so.

Even RationalWiki has an entry about LGF that holds this site is essentially hypocritical (it also misrepresents LGF claiming Mr. Johnson removed all his old articles - untrue - and kicked off all his old users - also largely untrue, they mostly left on their own).

Little Green Footballs (LGF) is a website that went from vehement, racist, hate-speech right-wing warblog in 2001 to vehement anti-right-wing blog in 2009 while retaining the same tactics of ridicule, personal rivalries, banning of dissenters, and calling opponents “evil.” LGF is the creation of Charles Johnson, one of the leading boosters of the Iraq War in the early days of the blogosphere. His posts only bordered on hate speech as he popularized the canard of “Islamofascism” and LGF is cited often in Norwegian mass murder Anders Behring Breivik’s anti-Muslim “manifesto.” But Johnson fostered more open vileness in the LGF comments section: Muslims were “vermin,” the activist that was killed by a bulldozer in Israel, Rachel Corrie, was renamed “St. Pancake” while Palestinians required “sterilization,” and the beating of protesters was openly advocated while “targeted genocide” was a popular solution to America’s problems.

Moar depressing GOP news…

ARS Technica - Senate votes to let ISPs sell your Web browsing history to advertisers

ISP now stands for “invading subscriber privacy,” Democratic senator says.

The US Senate today voted to eliminate broadband privacy rules that would have required ISPs to get consumers’ explicit consent before selling or sharing Web browsing data and other private information with advertisers and other companies.

The rules were approved in October 2016 by the Federal Communications Commission’s then-Democratic leadership, but are opposed by the FCC’s new Republican majority and Republicans in Congress. The Senate today used its power under the Congressional Review Act to ensure that the FCC rulemaking “shall have no force or effect” and to prevent the FCC from issuing similar regulations in the future.

The House, also controlled by Republicans, would need to vote on the measure before the privacy rules are officially eliminated. President Trump could also preserve the privacy rules by issuing a veto. If the House and Trump agree with the Senate’s action, ISPs won’t have to seek customer approval before sharing their browsing histories and other private information with advertisers.

The Senate vote was 50-48, with lawmakers voting entirely along party lines.

“President Trump may be outraged by fake violations of his own privacy, but every American should be alarmed by the very real violation of privacy that will result [from] the Republican roll-back of broadband privacy protections,” Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) said after the vote.

The Senate measure was introduced two weeks ago by Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and 23 Republican co-sponsors. Flake said at the time that he is trying to “protect consumers from overreaching Internet regulation.” FCC Chairman Ajit Pai argues that consumers would be confused if there are different privacy rules for ISPs than for online companies like Google and Facebook. “American consumers should not have to be lawyers or engineers to figure out if their information is protected,” Pai recently told Democratic lawmakers.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) argued today that the privacy rules “hurt job creators and stifle economic growth.” Cornyn also said the FCC’s privacy rulemaking involves the “government picking winners and losers,” and was among the “harmful rules and regulations put forward by the Obama administration at the last moment.”

Pelosi would never have scheduled the vote before she had the votes in her pocket.

They so wanted to do it on the Obamacare day.

So, kind of a good news/bad news thing for wingnuts - on the down side, they don’t have an interracial gang rape to point to, but on the plus side a woman lied about rape.

I got a dollar says that’s how the comments go.

That’s because Pelosi knew what the fuck she was doing. Ryan’s just an Ayn Rand fan boy in way over his head at Speaker.

Anyone wanna bet if Trump held a puppy it would piss on him and then nip his hand too?

Just like a baby, a puppy knows Our President is an Asshole and not one to be around.

So, the ROV is here:

In the deep trench between Arariki and Noriti. Apparently it’s never been explored before.

The talking heads on the video were speculating what caused the deep marks, the linear trenches, northeast of Arariki about 100 miles away. To me it’s clear, those are the scars from an attack by a Cetus.

It also occurs to me that, if Dems take back the House in 2018, and succeed in impeaching both trump and pence…well, guess who’d be next in line for the Presidency? :D

Talbott now faces a misdemeanor charge of making a false report to a police officer, though officers say that the false allegations had already caused damage.

Ohio couple fake murder, send ‘crime scene’ photo to family
“Breana Harmon Talbott’s hoax was also insulting to our community and especially offensive to the African-American community due to her description of the so-called suspects in her hoax,” police said in their Wednesday statement.

Good for the Denison police. That part of Texas is a hotbed of racism and meth-head Trump and Alex Jones worship. It would have been easy, and politically expedient, for the cops just to let the stupid girl go and furnish them with an excuse to harass local blacks. They did the right thing instead.
