Donald Trump demonstrates his fitness to be president by once again attacking the press on Twitter.

Geez, I guess we were wrong, it looks like Trump really does have the temperament to be the leader of the free world.

By the way I have some bad news.

I have been pinching myself pretty hard for over a week now, and I am beginning to think that all of this is NOT just a bad dream.

I'm going to keep on pinching, but I'm starting to lose hope here.

    I too keep thinking this is a bad dream and i will wake up. When they interviewed Al Frankin even he said he'd been nauseated.

    For the people that could see the ramifications of a trump presidency the results are truly horrifing.

    What lie is president twitter twat trying to peddle now? He is beyond pathetic.

    How long do you think it will take them to learn that he can NOT get past himself? Being the most selfish fucker on earth has always been the first quality I look for in a candidate.

    The embarrassment level is below earth worm shit.

      Totally agree 11:49, that Trump is beyond pathetic. I don't doubt for a minute that the entire transition team (except for Don)is in panic mode. Not that they will admit it. Four thousand high level positions to fill...not gonna happen by January 20.

    1. This is how he works. It's party of the bully strategy.

      He knows enough not to start a war on multiple fronts. So he has chosen his target. He will work ceaselessly to destroy the New York Times. Then he will point to them and tell the others, shut up or I'll crush you too. It's an intimidation tactic. If they don't fall in line, he'll move to target number two. Probably the Wall St. Journal.

      He'll get his buddies with money and influence to join him in piling on to take out the NY Times one way or another. And they'll do it because they "owe" him a favor.

    "In an attempt to move forward after their devastating election losses, a number of Democrats want to find common ground with President-elect Donald Trump, arguing that obstructing everything would not be wise. A smaller minority, meanwhile, are calling on Democrats to stand on principle and oppose anything Trump puts forward unless he renounces his ties to toxic advisers."

    That small minority are CORRECT!

    This is why we lost. This is why the Democratic Party is fucked up.

    Exactly what do they think they are going to compromise on? Registering Muslims? The Wall? Camps? Selling off our Federal lands to the highest bidder? Privatizing Social Security? Dismantling Medicare and Medicaid?

    Are they going to roll over and play dead if Trump decides to keep one part of Obamacare as long as he can rename it Trumpcare? He *says* he wants to keep the precondition part and allow kids to stay on. But given their history, who knows what the Democrats are going to give away.

    Who’s Made Over 20,000 Donations To Planned Parenthood Since The Election? ‘Mike Pence,’ That’s Who!

    So here’s a silver lining in a week when we could use some: Since last week’s election, Planned Parenthood has received 160,000 donations. It probably helps that the organization rushed to reassure progressives the day afterward that they aren’t going away, no matter what madness comes out of a Trump-Pence administration. And it probably didn’t hurt that Elizabeth Warren made a point of going on the Rachel Maddow Show and encouraging people to volunteer instead of moping, specifically mentioning Planned Parenthood. But along with all the very much needed donations, there’s also a subcurrent of Expert-Tier trolling going on: Over 20,000 donations in various amounts have been made to the group in the name of “Mike Pence,” the anti-choice bonehead serving as Donald Trump’s Impeachment Insurance.

    4. Better to send it directly to Planned Parenthood than to a middleman like Susan G. "I'm a shill for the Republican Party" Koman. They're exactly like Donald Drumpf. They solicit donations, then skim an administration fee to pay their salaries, then donate to those doing the actual research. So, like Trump, they're donating other people's money but putting their name on it.

    ‘Trump’ Name Coming Off New York Apartments So Humans Can Rent Without Paralyzing Shame

    Now that even the Trump Organization is running from the Trump name, it should be no surprise that, as of Wednesday, the name “Trump” will be taken off several Manhattan buildings by the owners, who have decided the name no longer screams “Luxury and success” so much as it just plain screams incoherently. The buildings, at 140, 160 and 180 Trump Place on the Upper West Side, were developed by Trump in the 1990s, but Equity Residential, the current owner, will be taking down the signs and actually changing the street name, because “TRUMP” doesn’t quite appeal to renters like it used to.

    Professor predicted Trump win, says he will be impeached

    (CNN)The man dubbed "Prediction Professor" for accurately calling almost every presidential election since 1984, including the 2016 election, now forecasts the impeachment of President-elect Donald Trump.

    "There's a very good chance that Donald Trump could face impeachment," Allan Lichtman told Erin Burnett on "Erin Burnett OutFront."

    Lichtman, a political historian who teaches at the American University in Washington, says he uses his own system of 13 true or false statements to judge whether the incumbent party will retain the White House. However, when it came to his bold prediction of a Trump impeachment, he told Burnett it's based on his instinct.

    "First of all, throughout his life he has played fast and loose with the law," Lichtman said. "He has run an illegal charity in New York state. He has made an illegal campaign contribution through that charity. He has used the charity to settle personal business debts. He faces a RICO lawsuit."...

You can agree to try making a new admin work, but that doesn't mean you have to stop talking about what actually happened or now see things differently. It's an insult to all the affected groups.

    Could the Electoral College elect Hillary Clinton instead of Donald Trump?

    Question:
    Can the Electoral College elect Hillary Clinton on Dec. 19?

    Answer:
    Yes, it may be constitutionally possible; but no, it will not happen, according to election experts

    FULL ANSWER
    A Change.org petition, now signed by more than 4.3 million people, encourages members of the Electoral College to cast their votes for Hillary Clinton when the college meets on Dec. 19. The petition argues that Donald Trump is “unfit to serve” and that “Secretary Clinton WON THE POPULAR VOTE and should be President.”
    “If they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will win,” the petition states. “However, they can vote for Hillary Clinton if they choose. Even in states where that is not allowed, their vote would still be counted, they would simply pay a small fine – which we can be sure Clinton supporters will be glad to pay! We are calling on the Electors to ignore their states’ votes and cast their ballots for Secretary Clinton.”

    NSA Head Openly Accuses Russia of Using Wikileaks to Get Trump Elected

    Everything in this country is so goddamn wild right now, it’s easy to miss things. Which is why it’s worth noting that the head of the National Security Agency just openly described Wikileaks as a tool of a “nation-state” (that’d be Russia), which deliberately used targeted leaks to get Donald Trump elected.

    Admiral Michael S. Rogers is the head of the National Security Agency and the Commander of the U.S. Cyber Command. Here he is onstage at a Wall Street Journal conference held on Tuesday, giving a pretty good indicator of how the intelligence community of the United States feels about Wikileaks.

    “There shouldn’t be any doubt in anybody’s mind,” he says, “This was not something that was done casually. This was not something that was done by chance. This was not a target that was selected purely arbitrarily. This was a conscious effort by a nation state to achieve a specific effect.”

    As our colleagues at Gizmodo have extensively covered, Julian Assange has sworn up and down that he wasn’t trying to influence the U.S. election, and the United States already formally accused Russia in October of stealing emails from the Democratic National Committee and elsewhere.

    But while President Obama might have some form of retaliation in mind, he has less than 70 days before his burnt sienna successor takes office. Putin and Trump already had a friendly phone call two days ago pledging to fix relations between their two countries, after which Russia promptly launched air strikes in Syria. (It’s unclear if Trump and Putin managed to get around to talking about Syria, or if Donald Trump has been briefed on what Syria even is.) John McCain, of all people, has warned that a change in U.S. policy towards Russia would amount to “complicity in Putin and Assad’s butchery of the Syrian people.”

    "One day before U.S. President-elect Donald Trump’s first meeting with a foreign leader, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Japanese officials said they had not finalized when or where in New York it would take place, who would be invited, or in some cases whom to call for answers.

    Uncertainty over the talks shows the difficulties in turning Trump from a freewheeling businessman into a sitting president with a watertight schedule and a fully functioning administration by his inauguration on Jan. 20.

    Japanese and U.S. officials said on Wednesday the State Department had not been involved in planning the meeting, leaving the logistical and protocol details that normally would be settled far in advance still to be determined.

    “There has been a lot of confusion,” said one Japanese official.

    The meeting was only agreed to last week and Trump and his advisers have been busy in meetings at his headquarters in Manhattan’s Trump Tower in recent days to work out who gets which job in the new administration.

    While world leaders sometimes hold loosely planned bilateral meetings at regional summits, it is unusual for foreign leaders to hold high-level diplomatic talks in the United States without detailed planning. Abe is on his way to an Asia-Pacific summit in Peru.

    State Department spokesman John Kirby said that to his knowledge, Trump’s transition team had not been in contact with the department either to discuss the transition of government or to seek information ahead of his meetings with foreign leaders."


    Oh, yeah. Things are going fine. Just peachy.

    Just imagine what kind of impression the Trump administration is giving to foreign governments.
