HAS YOU SEEN IT?

Red Alert, America, because your president is even fucking crazier than he was yesterday, and on top of that, he’s somehow managing to get dumber and more racist.

No, we’re not talking about how he just accused MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough of murder on Twitter, but that’s a thing!

No, we’re not talking about how Trump’s response to learning that NBC’s Matt Lauer is some sort of sex perv, JUST LIKE HE IS, is that news executives and anchors should be fired for reporting the actual news, but that’s also a thing!

No, we’re not talking about how Trump decided to serve America breakfast in bed Wednesday morning with a side of anti-Muslim murder porn, but oh boy, that was a thing too!

Maggie Haberman has a scoop in the New York Times that builds off the recent revelation that Donald Trump thinks Donald Trump was lying when Donald Trump admitted Donald Trump likes to grab women by the pussy. (Haberman has a new detail about that, by the way, and it is that the president doesn’t recognize the sound of his own voice. Ayup.) The new thing? Oh, it’s just that Trump is searching the White House couch cushions and the corridors and the nooks and the crannies, still looking for proof that Barack Obama (a real president) was born in Not America. What’s that thing in Melania’s armpit? It’s Donald Trump’s honker, sniffing around to see if Obama’s long-form birth certificate is hidden up in there!

In recent months, [advisers] say, Mr. Trump has used closed-door conversations to question the authenticity of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate. He has also repeatedly claimed that he lost the popular vote last year because of widespread voter fraud, according to advisers and lawmakers.

One senator who listened as the president revived his doubts about Mr. Obama’s birth certificate chuckled on Tuesday as he recalled the conversation. The president, he said, has had a hard time letting go of his claim that Mr. Obama was not born in the United States. The senator asked not to be named to discuss private conversations.

That’s right, anonymous Republican (we assume) senator, chuckle away! The president may be verifiably insane, as he clings to his racist, baseless belief that the black guy who actually earned the office in which his decaying ass now squats might not be a real American. Ha ha! What a knee-slapper! Whichever Republican (we assume) senator whispered that in Maggie Haberman’s ear is invited to go fuck himself.

The Washington Post serves up its own casserole of Trump batshit, reporting that Trump is adorably telling everybody he’s ever met he’s DEFINITELY FOR SURE CERTAIN Robert Mueller’s investigation will be over by the end of the year, and that he will be declared innocent of all charges. While it’s cute if he really believes that (his lawyer Ty Cobb has been insisting to him that it’s true), it’s also disturbing, because what happens when January 1 passes and Mueller doesn’t show up in the Oval to give Trump a lick-job and a framed plaque that says, “NO RUSSIA, NO RUSSIA, YOU ARE THE RUSSIA”?

One outside adviser to Trump warned that the president would “blow a gasket” if there was no statement of exoneration by year’s end.

Take your bets for what day in January Trump will do Saturday Night Massacre 2: More Bigly Stupider Than Nixon’s Weak And Failing Saturday Night Massacre.

We laugh at these things, because for Christ’s sake, otherwise, we’d spend all our time weeping for the state of America (and TERRIFIED, since we’re closer to war with North Korea than we’ve been in years, to the point that Hawaii is bringing back its Cold War air raid sirens). But laughing aside, Jonathan Chait points out at New York mag the thing we all know and suspect, which is that it’s highly possible Trump believes his lies, which would suggest the president’s Very Good Brain is irreparably broken:

If Trump actually has the ability to convince himself of his own lies, it would suggest a possibility far more dangerous than even his critics have previously assumed. He might be in the grip of a mental-health issue, or at least one more serious than mere sociopathy. And the mutterings that he might need to be removed from office through the 25th Amendment could grow more serious than many of us have expected.

Mike Pence, you know what to do. Just fucking do it, you white-haired bigoted Ken doll from hell!

Mother Pence will just love being First Lady.

    When does Trump defect to Germany circa 1936?

    • Bobathonic

      A few years ago.

    • Ghenghis McCann

      They wouldn’t want him. His Lardiness would never be accepted as a fine example of Aryan Manhood. (Maybe that’s how he sucks up to RWNJs now.)

  • SomeBigRedDog

    Can’t someone just slip his meds in his morning ovaltine or something?

    • Ghenghis McCann

      He might notice when his Ovaltine needs to be served up in a 40 gallon drum because of all the meds.

    • Walter Wellstone

      I read somewhere that people in the know say he lies in private, needlessly and without a clear benefit stemming from the lies. This means he’s probably not a liar but just an old man with a serious mental illness, which is worse.

      • natoslug

        He spent his whole life lying, so he’s not just an old man with a serious mental illness. The serious mental illness is just the whipped cream miracle whip and cherry on top of the shit sundae that is DJT’s mind.

      • Suttree

        Nah he has always been a liar. He may be mentally ill also, but he was always a piece of shit.

        • Walter Wellstone

          He is a fucking moron. That needs to be said every day.

      • SomeBigRedDog

        My dad has dementia and he’s not allowed to operate anything more complicated than the TV remote, much less run a goddamn country.

        • Walter Wellstone

          My point exactly.

    • natoslug

      I’m fine with them slipping in some “or something.”

  • Shrieking Harpy

    Thanks to Trump reasonably intelligent people now talk about “mere” sociopathy.

    • Ghenghis McCann

      ‘Well, Caligula did have his good points. He was so concerned about animal welfare he made his horse a senator, Trump hasn’t done that yet.’

      • altleftjohn

        Although he appointed Rick Perry to a cabinet post, and Rick is about as smart as a horse.

      • Covfefe

        No. Trump doesn’t have a horse. But he’s found Roy Moore.

      • The horse never killed anyone and never took bribes, making him better than most Roman Senators

    The Trump news this morning is so annoying, with the Britain First videos and the birther nonsense, that the news article which made me happy was the one saying there’s going to be a super-volcano erupt sooner than we think and it will send humanity back to pre-civilization days. Bring it on!

    • Suttree

      I’ve always wanted to be a hunter gatherer.

          • nightmoth

            I’m really gonna have to learn to weave baskets. And tan hides. I tried to tan a deer skin once but it rotted.

          • AmazingProfessionalCrastinator

            I tried a couple times. While I was at work one day, my dog broke out of his kennel and used the first one for a chew toy. The second one just didn’t turn out right. Maybe I should have tried the original tanning substance – brains – instead of newfangled chemicals.

          • You should ice that burn

            One of my favorite blacksmithing projects is banging out a proper set of tongs..Tools that can make tools are a good thing!

          • Suttree

            Tongs are always good! I always like to do functional stuff. I had to do tons of hinges and latches. I am a better fabricator than blacksmith though. But I put in about 4 years full time. No longer have mismatched arms though.

    We have to accept that The Fucking Moron has a serious mental condition. He’s unhinged and delusional. He just can’t stop! He can’t conceive that a black man was SUPERIOR to him in EVERYWAY! More class, intelligence, dignity, looks, personality, etc. It has simply driven him mad. SAD.

    Mother Pence will never be first lady. First Mother at best.
    Plus think of the hassles when she will insist on sitting in in every top secret meeting where a female adviser is involved.

    • OlivesOlives

      Adorable that you think there will be female advisors in any Pence administration meeting…

      • Bobathonic

        I can see her warning off Merkel. Or May.

    • arensb

      I take it you can’t remember Ofmike’s real name either, and call her “Mother” instead.

      • David Chaillou

        “Ofmike”, is that a meme in this country? Sorry, it didn’t make it across the Atlantic, so I’m afraid I missed your point.

        • arensb

          In Margaret Atwood’s classic dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale (which you should read if you haven’t already), women don’t have names of their own, but take a name derived from their father’s or husband’s name. Thus, Glen’s wife is named Ofglen.

          • David Chaillou

            Having learned something today, I can now turn off the light and go to sleep. Thanks.

        Way too late. But I think it was the mercury fumes from all those gold-plating jobs that did him. Mad as the Hatter and the March Hare he is.

    Yup, it’s time for Mike Pence to make his move.

  • Bub, the cynical zombie

    One outside adviser to Trump warned that the president would “blow a gasket” if there was no statement of exoneration by year’s end.

    Given what we are seeing today…the mind boggles!

      If he blows a gasket, they’ll never get the grease out of the carpets.

      • Paganish

        Not to mention the SMELL

  • kilgoretrout

    Trump’s father was arrested in the 1920s during a disturbance at a Klan rally. You gotta figure papa Trump drummed his racist views into his kids and Donald was the star pupil. The crazy hate has been a part of Trump since before his birth. Born and bred racist.

  • Tetman Callis

    Inside Despicable Chump’s head there is a hall of mirrors, illuminated by gaslight.

  • Asterix

    I firmly believe Pence is actually worse. But next up is Paul Ryan and… no.

    • shivaskeeper

      Pence is worse in some ways. But his theocracy dreams will be shattered by all the other sects of Christianity that are smart enough to know they will be outlawed as well. He is also not too bright, has no cult of personality to control the base with, no political cred or capitol to spend, and is generally just a non-entity who has to get chaperoned by Mother everywhere he goes.

    • LeighBowery’sLuxuryComedy

      I did think that for the longest time. And I still think he’s really truly very mostest Not Good. But. Given the apparently literal insanity (with apologies to real insane people) coming out of the oval office? He seems like a lesser elder god by comparison.

      And also too, should he wind up there because his big orange buddy went to the funny farm/big house (either works fine for me, thanks), it’s at least *possible* the stench of that will rub off enough that he won’t be any better at winning than the national embarrassment stinking the place up now.

    • Guinnessmonkey

      I’ll never understand how a guy being really conservative makes them worse than having an actually insane person controlling nuclear weapons.

      Also, while many of Pence’s policies would be horrible, he won’t be able to do half the awful things he’d want to do ‘cuz of the SCOTUS and he’d reverse a good deal of Trump’s nonsense (I doubt Pence would be interested in gutting the State Department just because Vlad wants it gone, for example).

      Usually the tweets are more about obfuscating something relevant to him personally— I don’t think he gives a damn about helping the Republicans in Congress get anything done.

  • shivaskeeper

    Pence is too much of a coward to so the right thing. Plus I think he realizes he was out of his depth as a Governor and being the POTUS would but him over the event horizon of being out of one’s depth.

      So in other words – he’d still be twice as qualified as the current so-called POTUS.

    You know, when I was a kid I used to read about kings like Carlos II, who had a tongue too big for his mouth, or Henry VIII who threw together a religion so he could get some strange, and wonder how they got so many ostensibly intelligent people to go along with the idea that these guys should be running anything more complex than a banana stand.

    I don’t really wonder anymore.

  • NastyBossetti

    “the president doesn’t recognize the sound of his own voice”

      Only his base cares who he blames anymore, and they would blame Democrats anyway. Progressives will be cheering Dems on. The rest of the country will hold Trump responsible because he’s supposed to solve problems, not create them. They will also ask how there could be a shutdown when the Republicans control 2 branches of government.

  • Royal Ugly Dude

    One outside adviser to Trump warned that the president would “blow a gasket”

    Objection. Assumes gasket not in evidence.

  • ImGoingBacon

    I think he’s going overboard, due to his lack of understanding the responsibilities of the office. One he was sworn in, the enormity of the situation hit him like a ton of lead bricks. Each day in office, brings him to new depths.

    • dshwa

      Narcicists and sociopaths have to constantly strive to maintain a mental bubble that excludes any evidence that they are not perfect. That means eliminating people from their lives who counter that narrative, avoiding places where they might be confronted, etc. There’s no place to hide as president. Criticism is part of the job. Fact checking your every statement is automatic. Doubters, opposition, and antagonists are part in parcel. His narcicistic bubble is under constant assault in a way he’s been able to insulate himself frolm his whole life.

      When that bubble collapses, breakdowns are almost always the result. Psychosis, depression, lashing out, and suicide attempts are all common at that point.

      It’s the last possibility that scares me most. A good chunk of the country will believe it wasn’t a suicide attempt, and that reaction will burst the country like a rotten melon.

      • Indeniable Ron

        Worse, he could decide to take the world with him, also not uncommon with narcissists.

        • dshwa

          He’s doing that part with his attacks on the media, which is identical to the way a narcicist would treat a person who stops buying their bullshit. So far, he seems to think they’re to blame for the world hating him. So long as he keeps that line of thinking, nuking the world is prtobably not happening.

          • Indeniable Ron

            If then I hope so. But we all know he’s so far off the rails he’s in the station parking lot, so who the hell knows what he might decide to do when that stops working for him?

    • Guinnessmonkey

      I can distinctly remember my friends thinking I was crazy for talking about how it was a dangerous precedent for Obama to campaign so openly on fantastical bullshit like “ending the partisan divide” (like all it takes is one West Wing style, President Bartlett speech to make Republicans go, “you know, you’re right. It’s not baby murder, they’re just clumps of tissue and it’s a woman’s choice what to do with her own body. I guess the Pope just got this one wrong.”). Not because I feared Obama would become some sort of populist tyrant, but because it legitimizes a tactic that, in the hands of a less scrupulous politician, could cause real harm to the Republic. It acts like there aren’t real policy differences between the parties; that the only reason people vote for the other party is because they’re somehow being tricked.

      8 years later we had Bernie promising even more ridiculous bullshit and Trump campaigning as a racist demagogue.

  • IdiokraticKulturKommissar

    A confidential White House source has revealed Donnie was spotted talking to the portrait of Richard Nixon, asking him where Obama kept his real birth certificate. You know, the one that says he was born in Nairobi.

      Of course, what’s truly insane is that even if Trump was right and Obama WAS born in Nairobi, he’d still be a naturally born citizen since his mother was an American citizen.

  • Carpe Vagenda

    Donald Trump ‘right to retweet Britain First’s fake anti-Muslim video’ – White House

    The White House has said Donald Trump was right to retweet three anti-Muslim videos posted by the deputy leader of far-right group Britain First as Downing Street condemned the President’s actions.
    . . .
    Downing Street said: ‘Britain First seeks to divide communities in their use of hateful narratives which pedal lies and stoke tensions.

    ‘This causes anxiety to law abiding people. British people overwhelmingly reject the prejudiced rhetoric of the far-right, which is the antithesis of the values that this country represents: decency, tolerance and respect.

    ‘It is wrong for the president to have done this.’

    Here is an example of how much time Donald spent on the massacre in Egypt last week of over 300 people. It is the quote of the day from the WaPo 202 today.

    “Professional golfer Brad Faxon recounted his Thanksgiving golf outing with Trump. “The bombing in Egypt happened while we were on the 9th hole,” Faxon said. “And somebody, I don’t know if it was a press secretary, came out there and told us about it and he brought us all together and said you know there’s a terrible act of terrorism, and he had to release a statement. … It was really impressive how they handled it all so quickly, too.”

          It’s hard to say. They might view it as a negative if they had the faintest idea what the word meant.

          Almost any one of them would swear an oath that they, personally, are not a racist. It’s just that they know in their hearts that all them brown-skinned folk are lazy and steal our jobs and don’t speak English and smuggle drugs and commit crimes. Also, they have the wrong kind of religion.

        Not only is it 1/3 of the nation, but the electoral college is designed to give that specific 1/3 outsized influence in governance.

        • Maybe

          So true. Each state gets electors equal to its number of reps plus its number of senators. Since small population states get 2 senators–same New York or California–each voter in those small population states has significantly more electoral power.

          Of course that would still be true if those sp states were Blue, but for some reason they just aren’t.

          Protecting small states in this way may have made more sense long ago when slow transportation and communication cut states off from each other. Now it just leads to minority rule.

      It’s worth underlining this point: this is how Trump made his political name all the way back in 2011. So all those obnoxious Trump supporters crowing “Trump’s never said anything racist! Prove he’s racist!”, this is exhibit A. His brand built off of this.

      • puredog

        The birther statement, in and of itself, is not racist. The animus for making it: THAT is racist. These nuances are lost on racists, surprisingly enough.

        • Katamount

          The birther statement is “Obama wasn’t born in the United States.” Given that he was born in Hawaii and there was ample evidence of that fact, yes, the statement in itself is racist because it’s meant to delegitimize the first black President of the United States. The statement is racist, the animus is racist and the person saying it is definitely racist.

    “He might be in the grip of a mental-health issue, or at least one more serious than mere sociopathy.”

    Understatement of the year. “mere sociopathy” – sociopathy in a President is now acceptable?! We’re completely FUCKED!

    He is suffering from:
    Dementia
    Narcissistic Personality Disorder
    Borderline Personality

    “The Senator also noted that Trump had a habit of demanding that somebody named ‘Varus’ give him back his ‘Legions’. In other closed-door meetings, the President was also overheard ranting about turbulent priests on more than one occasion, but the Senator believes he was referring to Mueller.”

    Just another day of utter bullshit from the buffoon-in-chief.

    Maybe he’d be concerned about North Korea but he’s tweeting about sex investigations and phony, racist videos.

    Every day I think “It’s worse than I imagined.”

    • Pisto75666

      And every day, he surprises us (by being worse)

      • Lefty Wright

        It doesn’t surprise me at all. It does disgust me, but what disgusts me more is that millions of other Americans also knew he would do pretty much what he has done. Hell, most of what he has done he discussed doing during the campaign. Yet they failed to vote, voted a third party, or wrote in Bernie. And many of these same people engaged in attacks on Clinton long after the primaries were over. I hate them more than the people stupid enough to believe Trump. These people KNEW, but allowed it to happen anyway.

  • BMW

    Hey, look…turns out Trump didn’t put the Birth Certificate controversy (that Hillary started) to rest when he got Obama to release his certificate in 2011!

    In other news, no one really believed Trump when he claimed in 2016 that he’d put the Birth Certificate controversy to rest when he got Obama to release his certificate in 2011.

    • laineypc

      He doesn’t believe it himself, apparently.

    • Kip TW

      Hillary didn’t start that. She didn’t even go with it when a staffer blue-sky’d it. It’s trivially easy to determine this. To believe it, of course, you just have to take the word of one Donald J. Trump.

      • BMW

    And to top off his racist birther shit, why not add in a side dish of support for fascism as he retweets three anti-Muslim videos posted by the deputy leader of the UK fascist group “Britain First”, Jayda Fransen, prompting condemnation from the UK government. Fransen is currently facing charges of causing religiously aggravated harassment.

    As the article points out “Britain First” was shouted by Thomas Mair, the UK fascist terrorist who murdered British Member of Parliament, Jo Cox, during the EU referendum campaign last year. Brendan cox, widow of the murdered MP tweeted his disgust of Trump’s actions.

    My own reaction is probably not quite as eloquent but can I just say……

    Go fuck yourself you rancid racist turd.

    OT: About half an hour ago I was listening to some weridly cheerful Korea/nuclear expert bloviating perkily on NPR about his opinion that, as far as delivering a nuclear payload to the East Coast, North Korea was “essentially there.” In the course of his disquisition, he used the phrase “at the end of the day” at least twice, maybe three times. Each time, all I could think of was the Doomsday Clock.

  • OrdinaryJoe

    I just met a woman who is pregnant, unemployed and getting public assistance and she got herself a free phone. So now I know, the Obama phone is a real fucking thing!!! Damn.

    • Angela Ruzzo

      Yes, it is, I know several disabled people in Louisiana who have one. They love them… they live on $735/mo SSDI and SSI and could not possibly afford a cell phone otherwise. What they really need, however, is cheap or free high speed internet at home, which they don’t get.

      • OrdinaryJoe

        The woman I met has no land line so this is her lifeline for things like Dr appts. Also, it gives her a contact number as she is searching for jobs. I met her at Kinkos where she was waiting to make copies of some job apps (no computer access so she can’t do the online ones, I told her about the one hour free on line time available at the nearby library).

        • Angela Ruzzo

          I am so glad for her. Public libraries are fantastic. I ran the computer network at a large library system in Louisiana, and we had 1-hour public access (or unlimited WiFi access), but anyone could renew for as many additional hours as needed as long as there wasn’t a waiting line, which there never was, except right after Hurricane Katrina when they gave us only 30 minutes at a time because 5000 people were lined up at every library to use them to apply for FEMA benefits. This makes me wonder what the public library situation is in Puerto Rico – I suspect it is bad.

    • Bob

      That program was actually started years before Obama, but the RWNJs saw a video of someone calling it an Obamaphone and the rest is history

      • TundraGrifter

        I’ve looked this up before but, from memory, the original “free phone” program was started under President Reagan and expanded to cell phones under Mr. Bush. It is financed (paid for) by taxes collected from all telephone users in the US of A.

  • Angela Ruzzo

    It DOESN’T FUCKING MATTER where Barrack Obama was born. His mother was a US citizen, he was a native-born citizen at birth, he could have been born on the fucking MOON and it wouldn’t matter (the issue of extra-terrestrial births is one the Supreme Court has yet to issue an opinion on, but until they do it doesn’t matter).

    • Tetman Callis

      We do have a way, but since we are a nation of laws, freely ignored by all of us who believe we can get away with it or otherwise don’t give a shit, which is the majority of us, there are certain legal hoops we are happy to see have to be jumped through, which provides us with the comforting illusions of stability, due process, and accomplishment. If the house should burn down while we study the fire code, well, at least we are a people of something something something.

    • Beaufighter

      All bets are off until the GOP gets their Screw Everybody But the Rich Tax Reform Act of 2017 passed. After they get what they want to please their corporate sponsors, they’ll be secretly hoping for Mueller to pull the plug on this national nightmare lest they be forced to actually show some spine and pull him kicking and screaming away from the big red button via 25th Amendment.

    • javadavis

      In theory, the 25th Amendment allows for removal of a president deemed unfit. In practice, it has only been used (by the president! and only three times so far) to delegate authority while the president was “unfit” due to being under anesthesia.
      In practice, it hasn’t been used (yet) to get a nutjob out of office.
      It has only been around since, apparently, the 1960s? That’s a google date, BTW.

            Huh, maybe that’s what I was thinking of? Let’s just start a new urban legend then. ‘Lincoln’s Gold’ is actually Abraham Lincoln’s solid gold presidential sedan, with a hologram of Obama’s FOREIGN!!1!! birf sertifiket inside the glove box. It’s buried in Area 51, where the *real* White House sits.

      Well, NK has threatened all kinds of stupidity upon the US…

      …But perhaps more importantly, NK is a nightmare hell hole that is ruled by a leader who would make you moist-in-the-pants to have a leader like DT. Look into the stories NK defectors have brought us. Kim Jong Un “is literally” Kim Jong Un.

      Lets not forget it was the neocons who coined the term “axis-of-evil” and gave NK one third share there of.
