Kakistocracy

 

Many words have been said to describe this new regime.  Authoritarian.  Totalitarian.  Fascism.  An oligarchy.  A Fifth Columnist.  The Fourth Reich.  All are apropos.  Add to that a kakistocracy which means government by the least qualified or most unprincipled citizens.

    Our national nightmare is about to begin.

    You said it, dnd. The unblinkering of Red America begins.

    El dedos cortos has been in charge for about six hours now. Has he done anything stupid yet?
    The local news played a clip of his inauguration speech. Very dark. Very authoritarian.
    Demonstrations against Trump worldwide. Record low approval rate. Nobody showed up for the inauguration. I know he’s a narcissist, but does he get it?
    I can’t wait to see the coverage of the women’s marches tomorrow.

    Rachel Maddow had and interesting factoid about the new administration. Texas was sued by the Justice Dept. for a law that makes it more difficult for people of color to vote. They won. The Justices verdict stated that it not only discriminates, but that was clearly the intention of the legislature that wrote the law. An appeals court agreed that it discriminates, but not that that was the intent and sent it back. Justice was going to be back in court Tuesday. That was until the trump admin asked for a stay.
    So if one needed any more evidence that trump’s a racist, there ‘ya go.

    And now millions of women and men all over the world gather to protest the misogynist in chief.

    And another thing. Did anyone notice that after every sentence in the inaugural speech trump sniffed. Could the president be back on the blow?

    Tuned into AM Joy this morning. They were showing trump at the National Prayer Service. Jesus, did he look uncomfortable. Probably because the clergy kept bring up how arrogance was not a virtue.

    This is my snarky addition. Kellyann Conway’s outfit yesterday, was 100% horrible.

  8. I imagine that’s how Mussolini looked while attending church.

    The only good thing about this presidency is to watch the right wingnut media squirm and make excuses or defend this nut-bag of a president. That and watch Shawn Spencer lie to the press corps. He has a serious anger management problem. Probably have a stroke within the first 100 days.

    And if you haven’t seen Margaret & Helen: “Trump has skin thinner than his wife and an ego bigger than my ass.”

    Cheering all the wonderful marchers who turned out, all over the world. You were heard! Maybe you will put some spine in our feckless corporate press, and public servants.

    Way more impressive than any of those astroturfed tea party events.

  12. Looks like Chuck Todd finally grew a set!

    I wonder if when Kellyann Goebels’ kids lie to her she gives them a cookie because she’s so proud they take after mommy.
    “Alternative facts” my ass.

  14. tempebev

    Have you seen the new memes about Spicer on Huff Post?

  15. I’ve started watching the news again, time to get back in the game.

  16. Dog's eye view

    Report back to us. I am off watching the news. Reading it, a different matter.

  17. Mary Tyler Moore has passed away

    Glad I’m not in a tornado zone because there would be no help from FEMA since our prez is busy counting the people who attended the inauguration.

    Remember how upset the GOP was when President Obama would sign an executive order? “Ruling by fiat! We have a legislative process in America!” they chanted. And now with our first orange president, not a peep from the GOP on all of trump’s executive orders.

    The kingdom is toppling. He’s only worried about keeping his ego fed. Maybe someday he’ll figure out there is some responsibility that goes with the office he yearned for. I don’t see the diversity between those that are “for” and those that are “against” getting any better any time soon. He’s content to make more enemies and preen. Certainly can’t hold your breath waiting for something to happen – you’ll pass out! Onward to another day,

    So trump wants to slap a 20% border tax on Mexico to pay for the wall. Let’s see. We get 90% of our avocados and 70% of our tomatoes from Mexico. Not to mention jalapeno’s during the winter, Corona and tequila.
    The Superbowl is coming up in a couple of weeks. What do we consume during Superbowl parties? Guacamole, Tecate and tequila. So trump is going to make it 20% more expensive to watch the Superbowl. Why does he hate America?

  22. tempebev

    Hopefully the Trump voters will be bothered by something.

  23. tempebev

    OMG he’s nuts with his Executive orders. He doesn’t seem to have a clue as to what he’s doing. Example: Regulations plus 1 and then minus 2.

    Bev: I was glad to see that. Both nominees are sociopaths, although this is probably just a delay. What a clusterfuck. And it’s not even February.

  25. tempebev

    Tonight should be a big bummer when he announces his nominee for SC.

    Question to everyone: What is the process for inviting new people as members of BC? I have one in mind but don’t want to step on toes.

  26. dog's eye view

    Just invite ’em. New can be good.

    I don’t think Senate Democrats should confirm anyone but Merrick Garland. And stick to that.

  27. Invite em, would could use fresh blood.

  28. tempebev

    I guess Scalia rose from the dead only worse than before.
