Yes, seeing America disintegrate into total chaos would be a good thing, because it will mean the downfall of America much sooner than it was going to happen anyway.

Which is why Donald J. Trump is such a good thing for the world: he is fucking up America and making it easy for China to take over.

You've been listening to that lunatic Alex Jones for too long.

He has “FUCKED” your brain.

No wonder you think that god delusion inside your mind is a real god.

If I lived in Woodville, I would stand outside your house every day pointing in your direction and rolling around the ground pissing myself laughing.

Hahaha ... those two are going to turn Trump's life into total hell in 2019.

Just over a week to go and the Democrats OWN Congress.

Trump can sit in his television room at the White House and tug his needledick while fuming with rage that he has become a lame duck president.

No wonder so many people he has approached to be his next chief of staff have flatly turned him down.

Who'd want to work for a total idiot? Only idiots, that's who.

from the print edition of the Los Angeles Times…

Trump in the mood to grumble

He talks about his ‘lonely’ holiday, defends Syria decision and criticizes Mattis.

WASHINGTON D.C. — President Trump, as he often does, had a few things to say.

After admitting that he had been lonely over the holidays, Trump took advantage of his first public appearance of the new year on Wednesday to air lingering grievances, make multiple false claims and reinforce recent decisions that have rattled financial markets and his party's leaders.

As he held forth for more than 90 minutes before a small pool of reporters and photographers, members of his Cabinet, ostensibly called to the White House for a meeting, sat quietly around a long conference table.

Trump defended his decision last month to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria and sharply cut the deployment to Afghanistan, moves that disturbed Republican allies in Congress and prompted the resignation of Defense Secretary James N. Mattis. In doing so, he contradicted his own recent claim that the U.S. had achieved its objectives of total victory over Islamic State militants in Syria.

“Syria was lost long ago,” he said.

“Look, we don't want Syria,” he continued. “We're talking about sand and death. That's what we’re talking about. We're not talking about vast wealth. We're talking about sand and death,” he said, seemingly contrasting the war-wracked country with Iraq and its vast oil reserves.

Iran “can do what they want there, frankly,” he added, a comment likely to unnerve officials in Israel, who have worried that a U.S. withdrawal from its positions in eastern Syria would allow Iran to expand its influence there.

“It's not my fault,” he said. “I didn't put us there.”

Trump offered little further clarity on the U.S. withdrawal from Syria, which he initially said would take place in 30 days, saying now that the pullout will “take place over a period of time.”

Later, in a long riff about Afghanistan, Trump seemed to endorse Moscow's 1979 invasion of the country — an act that the U.S. viewed as an attempt to spread communism and waged a long, covert operation to combat during the Carter and Reagan administrations.

“The reason Russia was in Afghanistan was because terrorists were going into Russia,” Trump said, making a case to leave the policing of hot spots in the Mideast and Central Asia to countries in the region. “They were right to be there. The problem is it was a tough fight.”

The Soviet Union eventually was bankrupted by its Afghan war, Trump added. “Russia used to be the Soviet Union. Afghanistan made it Russia, because they went bankrupt fighting in Afghanistan.”

Historians generally agree that the Russian invasion and subsequent occupation of much of Afghanistan was one of several factors that contributed to the collapse of the Soviet Union, although the country never went bankrupt.

For years, Republicans have credited President Reagan with bringing an end to the Soviet Union by his aggressive increase in U.S. military spending.

Trump's comments stood in stark contrast to the view Mattis espoused in the resignation letter he presented last month after failing to convince the president to hold off on withdrawing from Syria.

“We must do everything possible to advance an international order that is most conducive to our security, prosperity and values, and we are strengthened in this effort by the solidarity of our alliances,” Mattis wrote.

Mattis' comments clearly stung Trump, who responded last month with criticism of his former Pentagon chief. On Wednesday, he stepped that up, claiming that he fired Mattis.

“What's he done for me? How had he done in Afghanistan? Not too good,” Trump said. “As you know, President Obama fired him, and essentially so did I.”

Obama did not fire Mattis, although the general did retire several months early in 2013 from his position as the head of the military's Central Command after dissenting from Obama administration policy decisions.

Tuesday was Mattis' final day at the Pentagon. Trump, in a fit of pique after the resignation letter became public, had moved up Mattis' termination date.

In addition to his foreign policy comments, Trump also downplayed December's stock market losses, which erased all positive gains for the year, as “a little glitch” and asserted — wrongly — that there are “probably 30-35 million” immigrants in the U.S. illegally. The non-partisan Pew Research Center estimates that as of 2016, there were 10.7 million unauthorized immigrants living in the country, a number that has declined in recent years.

Trump repeated his call for Democrats to agree to $5.6 billion in funding for a border wall, and expressed surprise not to have received overtures from them over the holidays to negotiate an end to the government shutdown.

“I was in the White House all by myself for six or seven days,” he said. “It was very lonely. My family was down in Florida. I said, ‘Stay there and enjoy yourself’. I felt I should be here just in case people wanted to come and negotiate the border security.”

Trump, who met later in the day with congressional leaders away from TV cameras, has already dismissed a funding proposal from House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi that includes $1.3 billion in border security funding.

While leaving the door open to a compromise, Trump continued to argue for the importance of a wall, pointing to other examples of barriers. He incorrectly asserted that Obama's Washington residence is surrounded by a 10-foot wall and cited the Vatican, which he said “has the biggest wall of them all.”

“When they say the wall is immoral, then you better do something about the Vatican,” he said. “Walls work.”

As Trump spoke, a “Game of Thrones”-style movie poster teasing Iran sanctions — “SANCTIONS ARE COMING,” it read — lay unfurled across the table directly in front of him. But he made no remarks on the subject.

He did, however, comment on Senator-elect Mitt Romney of Utah, who wrote in The Washington Post on Tuesday that he was troubled by Trump's “deep descent in December” and that his deficit in “presidential leadership in qualities of character … has been most glaring.”

“I wish Mitt could be more of a team player,” Trump said. “And if he's not, that's OK too.”

Seeming to warn Romney about the fate that lies ahead for Republican lawmakers who vocally criticize him and his presidency, Trump boasted that he “got rid of” former Senators Jeff Flake of Arizona and Bob Corker of Tennessee, both of whom opted not to seek new terms last year.

Accusing both men of seeking publicity in taking stands against him, Trump suggested that Flake would be seeking a job as a paid cable news contributor — or perhaps in another profession that Trump himself once plied.

“Jeff Flake is now selling real estate or whatever he's doing,” he said dismissively.

The U.S. military are going to run out of money in a few months.

And the Democrats aren't going to vote to provide them any money until Trump stops being stupid over his wankfest wall idea.

So the U.S. military had better get all their forces home from around the world before they no longer have any money to bring them home, let alone feed them where they are.

Hahaha ... Trump is going to LOSE his battle with the Democrats. They now hold the purse-strings to everything in America.

Donald Trump and His Team of Morons

Nobody left besides those with no reputation to lose.

By PAUL KRUGMAN | Monday, January 14, 2019

THERE HAVE BEEN many policy disasters over the course of U.S. history. It's hard, however, to think of a calamity as gratuitous, an error as unforced, as the current federal shutdown.

Nor can I think of another disaster as thoroughly personal, as completely owned by one man. When Donald Trump told Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, “I will be the one to shut it down,” he was being completely accurate — although he went on to promise that “I'm not going to blame you for it,” which was a lie.

Still, no man is an island, although Trump comes closer than most. You can't fully make sense of his policy pratfalls without acknowledging the extraordinary quality of the people with whom he has surrounded himself. And by “extraordinary,” of course, I mean extraordinarily low quality. Lincoln had a team of rivals; Trump has a team of morons.

If this sounds too harsh, consider recent economic pronouncements by two members of his administration. Predictably, these pronouncements involve bad economics; that's pretty much a given. What's striking, instead, is the inability of either man to stay on script; they can't even get their right-wing mendacity right.

First up is Kevin Hassett, chairman of Trump's Council of Economic Advisers, who was asked about the plight of federal workers who aren't being paid. You don't have to be a public relations expert to know that you're supposed to express some sympathy, whether you feel it or not. After all, there are multiple news reports about transportation security workers turning to food banks, the Coast Guard suggesting its employees hold garage sales, and so on.

So the right response involves expressing concern about those workers but placing the blame on Democrats who don't want to stop brown-skinned rapists, or something like that. But no: Hassett declared that it's all good, that the workers are actually “better off,” because they're getting time off without having to use any of their vacation days.

Then consider what Sean Hannity had to say about taxing the rich. What's that? You say that Hannity isn't a member of the Trump administration? But surely he is in every sense that matters. In fact, Fox News isn't just state TV, its hosts clearly have better access to the president, more input into his decisions, than any of the so-called experts at places like the State Department or the Department of Defense.

Anyway, Hannity declared that raising taxes on the wealthy would damage the economy, because “rich people won't be buying boats that they like recreationally,” and “they're not going to be taking expensive vacations anymore.”

Um, that's not the answer a conservative is supposed to give. You're supposed to insist that low taxes on the rich give them an incentive to work really really hard, not make it easier for them to take lavish vacations. You're supposed to declare that low taxes will induce them to save and spend money building businesses, not help them afford to buy new yachts.

Even if your real reason for favoring low taxes is that they let your wealthy friends engage in even more high living, you're not supposed to say that out loud.

Again, the point isn't that people in Trump's circle don't care about ordinary American families, and also talk nonsense — that's only to be expected. What's amazing is that they're so out of it that they don't know either how to pretend to care about the middle class, or what nonsense to spout in order to sustain that pretense.

So what's wrong with Trump's people? Why can't they serve up even some fake populism?

There are, I think, two answers, one generic to modern conservatism, one specific to Trump.

On the generic point: To be a modern conservative is to spend your life inside what amounts to a cult, barely exposed to outside ideas or even ways of speaking. Inside that cult, contempt for ordinary working Americans is widespread — remember Eric Cantor, the then-House majority leader, celebrating Labor Day by praising business owners. So is worship of wealth. And it can be hard for cult members to remember that you don't talk that way to outsiders.

Then there's the Trump effect. Normally working for the president of the United States is a career booster, something that looks good on your résumé. Trump's presidency, however, is so chaotic, corrupt and potentially compromised by his foreign entanglements that anyone associated with him gets tainted — which is why after only two years he has already left a trail of broken men and wrecked reputations in his wake.

So who is willing to serve him at this point? Only those with no reputation to lose, generally because they're pretty bad at what they do. There are, no doubt, conservatives smart and self-controlled enough to lie plausibly, or at least preserve some deniability, and defend Trump's policies without making fools of themselves. But those people have gone into hiding.

A year ago I pointed out that the Trump administration was turning into government by the worst and the dumbest. Since then, however, things have gotten even worse and even dumber. And we haven't hit bottom yet.

Trump is so stupid that he doesn't realise that every time he slags off at the media in an attempt to intimidate them, they simply retaliate by digging deeper and deeper to see what else he has been hiding, then expose it for the entire world to see the sleaze and graft of the corrupt, criminal Trump mob.



from The New York Times…

At Trump's Inauguration, $10,000 for Makeup
and Lots of Room Service


New details of spending on President Trump's inaugural two years ago
show that it roughly doubled that of his immediate predecessors.

WASHINGTON D.C. — Private donors put up $107 million to usher Donald J. Trump into office in style two years ago, and it is now clear just how enthusiastically his inaugural committee went to town with it.

There was $10,000 for makeup for 20 aides at an evening inaugural event. There was another $30,000 in per diem payments to dozens of contract staff members, in addition to their fully covered hotel rooms, room service orders, plane tickets and taxi rides, including some to drop off laundry.

The bill from the Trump International Hotel was more than $1.5 million. And there was a documentary, overseen by a close friend of Melania Trump's, that was ultimately abandoned.

The details of the expenditures, gleaned from interviews and from documents reviewed by The New York Times and not previously made public, show that the committee spent heavily on nearly every aspect of the events surrounding the inauguration.

In 72 days, it laid out about $100 million, roughly twice as much or more than was raised by Barack Obama or George W. Bush for their first and second presidential inaugurations.

The expansive spending reflected Mr. Trump's desire to make a grand entrance, with roughly 20 events around Washington, people familiar with the events said. It also had the hallmarks of previous Trump efforts, such as the campaign, with some Trump-family friends circumventing existing chains of command.

Disclosure of the spending details comes at a time when the inaugural committee is facing legal scrutiny over the donations that funded it.

Inaugural committees are required to document every donation with the Federal Election Commission, and the Trump team's reports are now under investigation by federal prosecutors in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Investigators are also looking into whether any foreign donations, which are illegal in the United States, were passed through Americans, and whether any donations went unrecorded, people familiar with the inquiries said.

People involved with the committee have said that they vetted all donors, but that they could do only so much to prove someone's money was their own. False statements to the Federal Election Commission can be a crime.

The investigation by federal prosecutors in Manhattan was prompted at least partly by a recording that Mr. Trump's former lawyer and fixer, Michael D. Cohen, made of a conversation he had with a central figure in the inaugural planning, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, shortly after Mrs. Trump ended Ms. Winston Wolkoff's role as an unpaid adviser to the first lady. Ms. Winston Wolkoff was dismissed after initial reports about the amount of money taken in by the entity she formed to help produce the inaugural.

There is no indication of any investigation into the inaugural committee's spending. For the most part, inaugural committees are free to spend the money they raise from private donations as they wish.

The bulk of the money for the inaugural committee came from big corporations, like AT&T, Bank of America and Pfizer, and wealthy Republicans donors, like Sheldon G. Adelson and Andrew Beal.

Given the short time frame between Election Day and Inauguration Day, inaugural committees cannot always seek out the lowest bidder. In the case of Mr. Trump's inaugural, some staff members and major vendors were veterans of previous inaugurations.

Much of the spending, while outsize, was mundane. Documents reviewed by The New York Times accounted for the entire $107 million raised for the inaugural, with most of the money going to payroll expenses and roughly 40 entities, the bulk of which were hotel chains and other vendors.

Roughly $5 million went to charity, which organizers have noted is the most ever for an inaugural committee.

But millions were written off in lost revenue. That included $6.4 million for blocks of hotel rooms booked for guests who ended up arranging their own accommodations. The Republican National Committee booked the excess hotel rooms before the inaugural staff was even formed, but the committee had to pony up when only half as many rooms were used as the party organization had expected.

Another $1.2 million in revenue that the committee expected to recoup for a media center never materialized.

Other arrangements by the inaugural committee also proved unusual.

Ms. Winston Wolkoff, then a close friend of Mrs. Trump's, was initially signed to a $1.6 million contract. Along with a friend, Jonathan Reynaga, she formed WIS Media Partners, a firm that oversaw broadcast rights for the inaugural events and worked on the documentary project featuring interviews with top inaugural committee officials.

The idea was to sell the rights to a major distributor. The project was later abandoned, although the interview footage still exists, as do copies, according to three people familiar with the effort.

WIS Media Partners became the inaugural committee's top vendor, acting as a kind of general contractor and overseeing a series of events. It received nearly $26 million, much of which was paid out to other vendors.

Steve Kerrigan, who was chief of staff for Mr. Obama's first inaugural committee, said that the firm's $1.6 million “supervisory fee” was the equivalent of “roughly one-fourth of what we paid our entire 450-person staff” in 2009. Even if Ms. Winston Wolkoff shared the fee among more than a dozen other top managers, as she and others say she did, the charge itself, Mr. Kerrigan said, was “outrageous.”

Greg Jenkins, the executive director of Mr. Bush's second inaugural, said, “I have never heard anybody getting that kind of fee associated with any inaugural, ever.”

Ms. Winston Wolkoff often fought with other top aides, according to people with direct knowledge of events. She was known to threaten to have senior officials fired, at times brandishing a cellphone and saying she would text Mrs. Trump or Ivanka Trump, the president's elder daughter, conveying a sense of authority that people later came to realize she did not have, three people with direct knowledge of the events said.

A lawyer for Ms. Winston Wolkoff declined to comment.

A spokesman for WIS Media Partners said all of the firm's charges “were vetted, authorized and signed off on” by the committee's top officials, including Thomas J. Barrack Jr., the committee's chairman; Rick Gates, the deputy chairman; and Sara Armstrong, the chief executive.

He said the firm's fees were “significantly below” the customary charges “for equivalent productions,” and that officials provided the inaugural committee with “all its audited records and receipts.” He said the company could not reveal more because it is legally barred by the inaugural committee from discussing its work on the inaugural events.

In a statement, Mr. Barrack said he continues “to be proud of the incredible work of all those that were part of the committee” and that it “complied with all laws and regulations, and its finances were fully audited internally and independently. The donors were fully vetted and disclosed to the Federal Election Commission as required.”

Mr. Trump's inaugural committee has come under scrutiny in the past for its high administrative and logistical costs. The new details help flesh out how the inaugural spent the money. Among the payments was more than $2 million spent on the firm of the Trump campaign official Brad Parscale for online advertisements to drum up inaugural crowds.

The Trump International Hotel was paid more than $1.5 million for services including the use of a ballroom, an “annex” and a space called the townhouse, according to records and people familiar with the payments.

While two other hotels, the Willard and the Fairmont, collected as much or more, Mr. Trump's hotel was also favored by vendors who billed their expenses directly to the committee.

Over all, the Trump team's spending appears “astronomical,” said Emmett S. Beliveau, who was chief executive of Mr. Obama's first inaugural committee.

Mr. Jenkins, who handled the Bush inaugural, said the scale of the Trump team's spending “blows me away.”

Ms. Winston Wolkoff and Mr. Reynaga brought in nearly three dozen staff members, some of whom flew in from Los Angeles or other cities and remained on the East Coast for weeks. WIS also helped bring in a New York-based party planner named David Monn, who refused to sign a contract, according to two people familiar with the arrangement. Mr. Monn charged the committee a total of $3.7 million, from which he paid subcontractors.

Among other tasks, Ms. Winston Wolkoff and colleagues managed the 500-person black-tie dinner hosted by Mr. Barrack at the neo-Classical Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium and a 1,500-person “candlelight” dinner at Union Station. They decided the decorations were not elegant enough and needed to be enhanced.

Mr. Monn spent $924,000 on seven-foot-high wreaths, moss-covered obelisks, flowers and other decorations to dress up Union Station. Makeup was provided for 20 staff members at a cost of $500 per person. For the dinner at the auditorium, table menus, table numbers and place cards, including an on-site calligrapher to correct last-minute mistakes, amounted to $91 per guest. Mr. Monn did not respond to repeated requests for comment on Monday.

The handling of expenses for contractors like WIS Media Partners was also unusual. Mr. Kerrigan, who also served as chief executive of Mr. Obama's second inaugural committee, said officials negotiated fixed-price contracts that limited how much vendors could charge for expenses.

If a vendor's staff member ran up a big room service bill, “that was on them,” said David Cusack, who was the executive director of the second committee. “They had a per diem, and they were supposed to eat on that.”

For Mr. Bush's second inaugural, too, vendors were required to build their expenses into their contracts, Mr. Jenkins said. He said his committee did not even hire vendors from outside the Washington area because “there was no need to.”

The Trump inaugural committee covered not only a fixed per diem for the people brought in by WIS Media, but picked up expenses including room service, cab rides for assistants who dropped off laundry and an order of McDonald's. All told, those expenses came to $227,511.

In less than two months, WIS billed $31,000 for hotel rooms described as Mr. Reynaga's, including nearly $18,000 for rooms at the Trump International Hotel, according to detailed expense documents reviewed by The New York Times. He also billed thousands of dollars for meals, room service and travel. On one day, he charged a $560 Amtrak train ticket from New York to Washington, plus a $251 first-class upgrade to meet with Mr. Barrack. That was followed by a $100 Uber ride the next day to “get to Tom's plane,” the records show.

The spokesman for WIS said WIS expenses were paid through business cards tied to a few senior officials of the firm, including Mr. Reynaga, meaning that Mr. Reynaga could have been paying for other employees' costs.

He also said staff members stayed at the Trump International Hotel “at the explicit direction” of inaugural committee officials. A former official of the inaugural committee denied that the WIS employees were required to stay at the Trump hotel.

What Trump's orgy of inaugural spending tells us
about the people around him


Lincoln had a team of rivals; Trump has a team of grifters.

By PAUL WALDMAN | 3:57PM EST — Tuesday, January 15, 2019

U.S. President Donald J. Trump speaks in front of fast food provided for the 2018 College Football Playoff National Champion Clemson Tigers, due to the partial government shutdown, in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington D.C. on January 14, 2019. — Photograph: Joshua Roberts/Reuters.

IT'S safe to say President Trump is not too happy about how things have gone for him personnel-wise over the last few years. As a presidential candidate, he promised that he would assemble a platinum-quality staff, as though Corinthian leather and gold leaf were government bureaucrats.

“I'm going to surround myself only with the best and most serious people,” he said in 2015. “We want top of the line professionals.”

Yet, somehow, it hasn't worked out that way. In fact, over time, we have learned that in both his business and political life, Trump has been followed by a truly extraordinary collection of grifters and thieves, people who, to paraphrase George Plunkitt, seen their opportunities and took 'em. And there was never an opportunity quite like Trump, at least until you get caught.

That's the message of documents that were obtained by The New York Times and ABC News, laying out what Trump's inaugural committee did with the record amounts of money it spent — more than $100 million, twice what Presidents Barack Obama or George W. Bush spent on their inaugurals, despite the fact that the Trump inaugural included a relatively small number of events. The picture painted by the figures amounts to that unusual combination of greed, ethical vacuum and incompetence that is so characteristically Trumpian.

Just like his business, just like his campaign, and just like his administration, it appears that all kinds of people looked at this Trump enterprise and said “Here's my chance to fill my pockets.” Here are some of the highlights:


  • Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a friend of first lady Melania Trump, set up an event-planning company just before the inauguration; her company billed almost $26 million. Though most of that went to subcontractors, she was paid a $1.6 million fee. Veterans of both the Obama and Bush inaugurals called that fee outrageous; it amounted to “roughly one-fourth of what we paid our entire 450-person staff” in 2009, said one Obama staffer.

  • Trump campaign digital chief Brad Parscale, who will be managing the president's re-election campaign, was paid more than $2 million to use his online wizardry to drum up a crowd for the inauguration. You'll remember how that worked out.

  • The Trump International Hotel billed the inaugural committee $1.5 million, in addition to making unspecified amounts from guests who made their own reservations.


  • The committee spent $6.4 million on empty hotel rooms after guests arranged their own accommodations.

  • Another party planner hired by Winston Wolkoff, David Monn, billed the committee $3.7 million. From The New York Times report: “Mr. Monn spent $924,000 on seven-foot-high wreaths, moss-covered obelisks, flowers and other decorations to dress up Union Station. Makeup was provided for 20 staff members at a cost of $500 per person. For the dinner at the auditorium, table menus, table numbers and place cards, including an on-site calligrapher to correct last-minute mistakes, amounted to $91 per guest.”

For some reason, the makeup is the line item that strikes me as the most extravagant, but what do I know.

You might ask, who cares? So a bunch of corporations and rich people decided to give Trump their money — they should have known what would happen to it. This whole practice of having the super wealthy and special interests rain money on the newly elected president for a bunch of parties is where the problem lies.

Which is true enough. But it's still an excellent representation of the kind of people and practices that Donald Trump attracts. When you elect someone such as him, you not only get his personal corruption, but in the bargain you get the kind of people he surrounds himself with, a corruption multiplier.

I don't think it's an accident that Obama, a man of obviously high personal integrity, not only didn't have any scandals, but suffered no significant scandals of graft and corruption among his underlings. With Trump, on the other hand, they're everywhere, as befits a man who lies in the way the rest of us ingest oxygen, keeps his tax returns secret, doesn't pay his bills, and spent years running one con after another on gullible victims.

And it runs in both directions. So Michael Cohen looks at Trump and says, “That's the guy I want to get next to,” and when Trump meets Cohen he says, “This kid is aces; I'm bringing him into my inner circle.” (Those aren't actual quotes.) The same thing happened, in one form or another, with the many others around Trump who have either pleaded guilty to crimes or been engulfed in scandal: Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Scott Pruitt, Ryan Zinke.

All were in one way or another trying to get their hands on as much cash and perks as they could, and they saw Trump as a vehicle to do that, while he saw them as his kind of folks. When we learn that acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney seems to have skipped out on a $1.4 million loan, we realize why Trump likes him enough to have given him three jobs (and counting).

So the orgy of ludicrous inaugural spending tells us as much or more about the people Trump attracts than it does about Trump himself. And here's another reason why this is important: It's going to keep happening. Do you think you've seen the last scandal coming out of Trump's administration or his businesses? Oh dear, no. He's got at least two more years. There's much, much more to come.

Donald Trump's fast-food presidency

We are living in a political era defined by the need for instant gratification.
The Trump administration is the embodiment of that.


By ROBERT GEBELHOFF | 6:09PM EST — Tuesday, January 15, 2019

PRESIDENT TRUMP couldn't welcome the Clemson University football team on Monday with food typically served at the White House, given that caterers there were furloughed under the partial government shutdown. So he did what many other Americans do when their options are limited: He ordered out.

The president celebrated the fast-food display — complete with mounds of hamburgers, fries, pizzas and, to be fair, some boxed salads — and, of course, boasted about paying for it himself. The reception, no doubt, was an attempt to make the president more relatable, but if anything, his cornucopia of greasy indulgence should serve as a symbol of his presidency.

On the bluntest level, Trump's default choice of “great American food” is a manifestation of a great American problem. People across the country — especially in low-income areas — too often rely on such inexpensive, high-calorie, high-sugar food to get by. We all know the result: a stark nutritional divide that saddles our most vulnerable communities with the brunt of our poor national health.

The problem is often framed as a lack of access to food — as in, low-income communities are less likely to have access to supermarkets or stores with fresh produce. But this “food desert” explanation doesn't suffice; research shows the real issue is that junk food is just more affordable, more convenient and more ingrained in some communities than nutritious options are.

This is a reality that has long frustrated public-health advocates: It's simply difficult to change people's behavior. This is partly due to a lack of education on nutrition, but it's also due to the fact that consumers simply find the short-term cost reductions of junk food more attractive than addressing long-term health costs.

But food isn't the only aspect of life where Americans overvalue instant gratification and ignore the massive challenges looming on the horizon. The Trump administration embodies that mind-set.

Take climate change. Trump's opponents advocate taking on some of the long-term costs associated with remedying global warming now, either by implementing some type of carbon tax or using taxpayer money to subsidize cleaner energy. Trump's strategy is not merely to ignore the problem but to deny that it's even happening. The short-term economic benefits of carbon-based energy are just too tantalizing for the president's conservative base to give up, so he parades around talking about a “war on coal” and promising that coal jobs will reappear — as if the president has power to control the market forces that have cut into the coal industry.

Whereas others want to lay out a systematic overhaul of immigration policy — or, at the very least, make some kind of deal on immigration just to keep the government running — Trump's strategy is to exacerbate the problem but in ways that make his base feel good. He has ginned up a phony crisis at the border and offered a solution as flimsy as the fast-food containers he served on White House platters: a border wall that has little to do with effective immigration enforcement. Never mind the long-term immigration crises we face, such as the millions of immigrants living in the United States illegally, or dealing with the humanitarian and economic crises in Central America that spur migrants to come north in the first place.

And while others are alarmed about the growing debt and interest rate payments facing our country, Trump's strategy has been to hand out treats in the form of tax cuts to business interests. Despite his lip service to our growing fiscal woes on the campaign trail, he has set up the 2019 budget to reach a deficit greater than $1 trillion.

This is the junk-food presidency, oriented to a political era in which far too many people are concerned about immediate satisfaction. Whoever challenges Trump in 2020 will have a tough time persuading people to get serious about discomforting issues and advocating solutions that will require taxpayers to take on the costs of proper government. But if we focus a little more on the long term, perhaps we’ll be able to make our country a little healthier.

Mayor Durkan spoils Trump's vindictive fun by welcoming immigrants

By DAVID HORSEY | 1:43PM PDT — Wednesday, April 24, 2019



TWICE in the last six months President Trump has threatened to release hundreds of immigrant detainees into so-called sanctuary cities that have pledged not to cooperate with mass roundups of undocumented immigrants. Apparently, Trump sees this as a way to punish his political adversaries, since those cities are led by Democrats who oppose his administration on many fronts. The president's vindictive glee may have soured, however, since Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and other civic leaders across the country have made it clear they would welcome the immigrants with open arms.
