the trumpster in the dumpster's white house can be described only in terms of

Trump’s personal lawyer resigns - - President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, will no longer lead the legal team responding to the ongoing Russian investigations.

This news came the day after Trump’s legal team spokesman, Mark Corallo, resigned. It isn't difficult, reading these teal leaves:

Some folks recognize good advice (but not the trumpster in the dumpster) Kasowitz has worked with Trump since the early 2000s, representing the president in the Trump University fraud case. Trump refunded $25 million as a settlement deal for students who paid for worthless Trump University real estate seminar programs. That’s 80¢ on the dollar. YUGE!

Life goes steaming along on the Trumptanic.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer abruptly resigned Friday as pressure mounted from a broadening investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.

Spicer quit after Trump named Anthony Scaramucci, a Wall Street financier, as the new White House communications director.

Trump used the occasion to lash out at the media, claiming his administration had “accomplished so much” and been “given credit for so little.”

Spicer’s resignation marked an escalation of tensions within an administration that has seen its legislative agenda falter at the same time it has been buffeted by an investigation into alleged collusion with Russia.

Neither Corallo nor Spicer have so far offered a rationale for their departures, but both step down as Trump wades into ever more perilous legal territory.

Trump aides have floated the idea of pre-emptive presidential pardons and Trump himself has warned investigators not to look into his family finances.

Scaramucci — who took the podium for the first time —dismissed reports of infighting, telling reporters: “I think the White House is on track.”

Trump plunged his White House into fresh crisis when he appeared to take special counsel Robert Mueller to task.

Mueller is examining whether Trump or his aides colluded with Russia’s apparent efforts to help tilt the 2016 presidential election in Trump’s favor. With the investigation apparently extending to financial transactions, US media reported that Trump allies were looking for ways to discredit Mueller’s investigation.

The White House has pointedly refused to rule out the possibility that Trump would fire Mueller — an act that would prompt a political firestorm and perhaps a constitutional crisis.

Trump lost the 2016 popular vote by 2,864,974 votes according to the independent, non-partisan Cook Political Report.

Clinton's final tally: 65,844,610

Trump's final tally: 62,979,636

All together now:

RUSSIA! RUSSIA! RUSSIA! (your highness)

President Trump said on Wednesday that he never would have appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions had he known Mr. Sessions would recuse himself from overseeing the Russia investigation, calling the decision “very unfair to the president.” (Nixon speak)

Hid royal jackass (Trump) complained that Sessions’s decision led to the appointment of a special counsel that should never have happened.

Trump also accused James B. Comey, the F.B.I. director he fired, of trying to leverage a dossier of compromising RUSSIAN material to keep his job.

Trump criticized Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel now leading the investigation into Russian meddling in last year’s election. Trump said Mr. Mueller was running an office rife with conflicts of interest and warned investigators against delving into matters (his financials) far afield from Russia. Trump must have just caught "conflict of interest" from a FAUX Snews scroll, because he never mentioned of it before.

Trump never said he would order the Justice Department to fire Mr. Mueller. But he left open that possibility as he expressed deep grievances over the political toll in the first six months of his presidency.

Asked if RussiaGate would cross a red line if it looked into his finances, Mr. Trump said, “I would say yes.” “I think that’s a violation. Look, this is about Russia.”

I don’t think we’re (the royal “we”) under investigation,” he said. “I’m not under investigation. For what? I didn’t do anything wrong.”

Describing a newly disclosed informal conversation he had with President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia during a dinner of world leaders in Germany this month, Mr. Trump said they talked mostly about “pleasantries.”

And the next day it snowed.

One Less (R) Vote

I'm not a Zombie so I don't know much about brains.

Well I know about Trump's brain.

Marion Diamond knows about brains. "Diamond’s research helped prove that the brain can physically change in response to external stimulation, growing cells when exposed to enriching experiences, even in older age. And that without enrichment (e.g. FAUX Snews), the brain can shrink."

I learned about glial cells from Diamond. Glial cells are like the housekeeping service for the neurons.

Why the hintergrundinformationen?

McCain's is 'most malignant of brain tumors.' His prognosis is grim (12 to 16 months remaining in his life).

"Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and aggressive primary brain tumor with an extremely poor prognosis in spite of multimodal treatment approaches. The estimated median survival in cases with GBM is about 12–16 months." the Glio means glial cells.

Some of us are old enough to remember McCain as a Pilot.

Cutting-Edge (pun) Treatments for Glioblastoma are on the Rise and Senator McCain will get the best money can buy!

There is no simple answer. Wait, and see.

In other news:

I already ordered a copy!

Although Bannon did not “make” Trump president in the way Karl Rove helped transport George W Bush from Austin to the White House, “Trump wouldn’t be president if it weren’t for Bannon”. Indeed, a month before Trump announced his candidacy in June 2015 and more than a year before Bannon joined the campaign, Trump was searching out Bannon at a conservative confab, the South Carolina Freedom Summit, going: “Where’s my Steve? Where’s my Steve?”

In Chapter 8, Green writes about how the GOP base had a vehemently anti-Fox News reaction to Kelly’s performance in that Cleveland debate, in which she badgered Trump with over-the-top questions.

Christie had set up a call with Obama on his cell phone in case Trump won but Trump, described as a germophobe, did not want Christie's cell phone next to his face.

A common practice in the aftermath of an American presidential election is the release of dozens of books by journalists who covered the whole thing. The deluge is already under way. Joshua Green’s Devil’s Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency, however, stands apart from the rest.

Bannon, more synthesist than strict adherent, brought to Guénon's Traditionalism a strong dose of Catholic social thought, in particular the concept of "subsidiarity": the principle expressed in Pope Pius XI's 1931 encyclical, Quadragesimo anno, that political matters should devolve to the lowest, least centralized authority that can responsibly handle them—a concept that, in a U.S. political context, mirrors small- ­government conservatism. Everywhere Bannon looked in the modern world, he saw signs of collapse and an encroaching globalist order stamping out the last vestiges of the traditional.

And now, one of Guenon's (Bannon) devotees has the ear of a president who doesn't know anything about anything. Deus vult!

and "they" are NOT out...

"They" refers to the republicans in congress.

Strike 1: failure of the Republican dominated House to "Repeal and Replace." Mar 24, 2017 - Paul Ryan explains why he pulled the the healthcare bill, why it failed and how Obamacare will remain the law of the land for the foreseeable future.

Strike 2: failure of the Republican dominated Senate to "Repeal and Replace." "Regretfully, it's now apparent that the effort to repeal and immediately replace the failure of Obamacare will not be successful," McConnell said in a statement. (Who is the failure here???)

So, what does that loser Trump do? As a bankrupted casino operator, he doubles down!

Insanity is repeating a behavior that doesn't work - multiple times - while still believing that failed behavior will work.

Why can't the republicans destroy something that is working? Didn't Governor Reagan DESTROY California schools? (Oh, yes! He did!)

Was the unfunded "No Child Left Behind" just another Trojan Horse? (Oh! By gum and by golly, it WAS)

So, Strike 3: failure of the Republican dominated CONGRESS to just "Repeal ObamaCare."

What would Americans give up, anyway? No sugar coating in Trumps "double-down" on ObamaCare!

His uber-fuhrer thinks he is not a civilian any more.

For years, even as a "civilian," I listened as Republicans pushed the Repeal and Replace of ObamaCare.

It is completely obvious to the most casual of all observers that the trumpster in the dumpster is nothing more than a stinking pile of sh*t!

And, the trumpster in the dumpster is COMPLETELY delusional!

a slip and fall

Polling released Sunday confirmed how far President Trump has slipped.

The Washington Post/ABC News survey found that 58% of American voters disapprove of Trump's performance in office. (Oh my!)

That's the worst grade of any president at this point in his tenure since modern polling began in the 1940s.

63% of American voters thought “the meeting with Russians” was "inappropriate."

The poll showed further slide in Trump's standing since last poll in April. Many other polls in the intervening weeks have also documented that drop.

Most of the decline appeared in May – when Trump fired FBI Director James B. Comey and the House passed the Republican healthcare bill, which is extremely unpopular.

Trump tried to brush aside the new poll, saying in a tweet that the Post/ABC poll had been inaccurate during the 2016 election.

That's a lie. The Post/ABC was off by about 2 percentage points from the actual election results. Even if it's currently wrong by the same amount, Trump would remain -- by far -- the most unpopular president.

But the poll also shows the president has largely kept support within his own party.

While Democrats and independents disapprove of Trump's performance by YUGE margins, those who supported Trump during the election continue to approve, 82%-15%.

Trump's position somewhat resembles that of Clinton’s second term -- the only other modern president who suffered from a large disapproval from a majority of voters.

Trump's poor standing threatens Republican control of the House in 2018.

Trump took office with the economy seven years into a slow recovery from the worst recession since the 1930s. So far this year, economic growth has been lagging a bit.

A new NBC/Wall St. Journal survey looked at counties Trump carried in 2016. Only 50% of adults in those areas still approve of Trump. That is far below Trump's support in those counties during the election, which averaged around 60%. The figure shows a real slide in Trump's backing in the places crucial to GOP treading water in 2018. It could become a water fall!
