Default Good King Trump

It's time we stopped pretending that the 2016 election is still a thing. Trump in the White House is the thing now.

Here's some bleak news to start us off:

And, of course, he'll redefine aesthetic sensibilities nationwide, too.

This may have consequences.


I fully expect the premiere locations in national parks to be made exclusive to 'highest bidders' and exploratory drilling to be heedless of any boundary whatsoever.

I believe the Endangered Species Act is headed to the guillotine, too.

The official disinformation campaign is under way.

Trump White House Distorts Wages Figure on First Day | Climate Central

Quote:
the White House said that eliminating power plant climate rules, a clean water rule and other environmental regulations would “greatly help American workers, increasing wages by more than $30 billion over the next 7 years.”
The article points up sloppy work all around on this T-Rump generated fake information. I take it for granted this is representative of what we're going to keep getting.

Using mick's method where he was spying on the US Government, "climate change" returns nothing, but "climate" gets you

An America First Energy Plan | whitehouse.gov

Quote:
For too long, we’ve been held back by burdensome regulations on our energy industry. President Trump is committed to eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule. Lifting these restrictions will greatly help American workers, increasing wages by more than $30 billion over the next 7 years.

Trump got to talk to some CIA people so he thought it would be good to criticize the media and tell a fib about the size of his fingers jimmy inaugural crowd.

Quote:
“I can only say that I am with you 1,000 percent. And the reason you’re my first stop—” Trump said before dramatically changing direction, “— is that as you know I have a running war with the media. They are among the most dishonest human beings on earth. Right? And they sort of made it sound like I have this feud with the intelligence community.”
Well, you did pretty much call them Nazis over the Russian hacking to try to help you get elected thing, but what's a little name calling between government representatives, right?

Quote:
Trump drew laughs from the crowd when he described reporters as "the most dishonest human beings" and claimed he'd drawn as many as 1.5 million people to his inauguration despite official estimates closer to 200,000 and repeated images of empty standing spaces. A few miles away, at the White House, Trump aides were soon setting up pictures of the crowd inside the press briefing room.
If this really does somehow win them over, I just, it can't, no matter how small, if only for one second you could see...

CNN seems genuinely pissed off since he called them fake news. Serves 'em right for not noticing he was fucking bonkers before he got elected. Maybe they'll learn something from it.

That's not even the best part. The best part is that most of Little Gloves' cake isn't even edible. In other words, the cake is a lie. Now if there's a better metaphor for his presidency, I haven't heard it yet.

For people who railed against how corrupt and illegitimate the Obama administration was, the Trump administration and campaign sure like to steal from him.

Let see:

Melania's speech
Inauguration Cake
Inauguration Photos of the National Mall

There's probably more, but the last two are so laughably blatant it's stunning .

It's starting already.

In Trump's America, 'Felony Riot' Charges Against Inauguration Protesters Signal Dangerous Wave of Repression | Alternet

Quote:
More than 200 people who were mass-arrested at the Washington, D.C. protests against the inauguration of Donald Trump have been hit with felony riot charges that are punishable by up to 10 years in prison and quarter-million-dollar fine. Those picked up in the sweep—including medics, legal observers and journalists—had their phones, cameras and other personal belongings confiscated as evidence, a lawyer confirmed to AlterNet.
They're busting out the extra strength dissent suppression charges already.

Quote:
Jeffrey Light, a Washington, D.C.-based lawyer who provided legal support to the Disrupt J20 Collective, agreed with this assessment. “I have been representing protesters for 15 years now, and I have never seen felony rioting charges in Washington, D.C. It is not one of the standard laws that they tend to use. This is unusual. It is rare to use that charge.”
So predictable.
