trump-45th-president

Yesterday was a memorable day, even if you were too  distraught to watch the Donald take the oath of office and become our 45th President.  The nightmare of the Donald Trump presidency has already begun.  The White House web site is the perfect example of Trump’s misguided and unethical priorities.  He’s not even clever enough to pretend that he will be a great leader, unencumbered by conflicts of interest.

The minute Trump became President, he wasn’t focused on the many positions in the administration that remain unfilled.  In what has been described as a ” chaotic transition” Trump “has left critical parts of the government dangerously short-handed.”

On Thursday Trump announced last-minute plans to retain 50 essential State Department and national security officials currently working in the Obama administration to ensure “continuity of government.”

As of Thursday, only two of Mr. Trump’s 15 cabinet nomineesJohn F. Kelly, to head the Department of Homeland Security, and his nominee for defense secretary, Gen. James N. Mattis — had been approved by congressional committees and were close to assuming their posts.

Trump has named only 29 of his 660 executive department appointments. That is a pace far slower than recent predecessors, falling far short of the schedule originally outlined by Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, who was Mr. Trump’s transition director before Mr. Trump ousted him 10 weeks ago.

None of this seemed to bother Mr. Trump. After arriving from New York, the president-elect trod solemnly down red-carpeted stairs from a government plane at Joint Base Andrews with his wife, Melania, then sped off to deliver a speech at a reception held at his ornate new hotel near the White House. There, he declared, with typical bluster, that his cabinet nominees had “by far the highest I.Q. of any cabinet assembled.”  Thus the first day in office he takes time out of his busy schedule as President to promote his new hotel, an obvious conflict of interest!

In a conference call with incoming staff this week, Mr. Priebus informed midlevel aides that they should avoid interacting with Mr. Trump without his permission, that they were prohibited from talking to the news media, and that they should carefully restrict their social media posts, according to two people with knowledge of the call.

On Thursday, aides released names of more than a dozen appointments to the White House staff. Most of them had worked for Mr. Priebus at the R.N.C. Mr. Trump also named a friend, Woody Johnson, the owner of the New York Jets, to be ambassador to Britain.

Trump’s focus has clearly NOT been on ensuring a smooth transition of power. It seems that his focus has been on changing the White House web site.  References on the website to civil rights issues, climate change , and LGBT rights has magically disappeared. The White House web site now paints black inner cities as shooting galleries.

 To make matters worse, Trump has modified the web site to include misleading information on Melania.  The web site lists her experience as a model, including several of the magazines in which she appeared, including the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.  However a few magazines were conspicuously omitted:
melania-trump-gq-magazine-nude
melania-trump-naked-with-woman
melania-trump-ogle-office
In case you weren’t offended by the White House web site referencing the modeling career of the First Lady, the site also mentions her jewelry collection.  Originally the website said:  “Melania is also a successful entrepreneur. In April 2010, Melania Trump launched her own jewelry collection, ‘Melania™ Timepieces & Jewelry,’ on QVC,” the site read.”

Sarah Palin has featured a post on Facebook that is purportedly a quote from the Donald.  The quote is:

“Sarah Palin has been there since day one.  Incredible.”

It is unclear what “Day One” is.  The first time I remember seeing Palin with Trump was before Palin quit the One Nation bus tour.  Palin and Trump ate pizza with forks.

This is the picture and description of the meeting illustrated:

Former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin, Donald Trump and Mrs Trump as they sit down for Pizza at LaFamiglia restaurant at West 50th and Broadway arrive , Manhattan for a chat with Donald Trump what is rumored to be her asking Donald to be her running mate in her bid to run for President.

It’s ironic that Trump is now taking the oath of office today as the 45th President, and Sarah Palin is at home in Alaska eating  blueberry pie and moose chili.  It is amazing that since day one Sarah Palin presumed that she would be the candidate running for President, and Trump would be the second in command.  Now Trump will be the Commander in Chief, and Palin will be…and unemployed Grandma to several grandkids.  She wasn’t even invited by Trump to the inauguration.  Donald Trump made a video encouraging lots of people to attend his “really incredible” inauguration which will be “fantastic.”

Palin hasn’t given a reason for her non-attendance, but many suspect that Alaska is just too darn far away.

Other people have different reasons for not being able to attend the inauguration.  They include:

Most people think of golden glitzy Trump Tower when they think of a building associated with Donald Trump.

However there is a new image associated with the inauguration of our 45th President.  It’s also an image associated with defecation, urination, and one of the most putrid smells known to the free world.   It is a port-a-potty, named after our 45th President,  Don’s Johns.

No…wait.  Trump doesn’t have an ownership interest in the Porta-potty company known as “Don’s Johns”.  Admittedly Trump’s first name is “Donald” and his middle name is “John”.  Admittedly, many people have the same feeling after hearing a Trump speech and when they enter a port-a-potty.  Evidently the fact that someone was covering up the name of the port-a-potty company had little to do with Trump’s actual wishes, and instead a decision by the government office the AOC (Architect of the Capitol) who ordered that the names be covered up. There seems to be no designation of the out houses for those supporting Donald John Trump, and those protesting the inauguration of Donald John Trump.  There is evidently no designation of the outhouses as appropriate for males, females, LGBT or cross-dressers.

It is ironic that Trump’s name is identical to that of the port-a-potty company.  It is ironic that Trump has suggested that government should “get out of the way”, but in this case he is the beneficiary of the government getting in the way.  The owner of Don’s Johns is angry that someone is covering up their company name and interfering with his latrines.

The CEO of the Don’s John company, Rob Weghorst, is unhappy about the whole deal and is telling his employees to rip the tape off, saying, “We like to have our names on our units.”

The only thing unclear now is whether the Secret Service will allow pictures of the Donald coming out of “Don’s John.” Such a photo could later be used on a commemorative coin crafted to be a special memory of the inauguration of our 45th President.

Tomorrow may be one of the most difficult days in the lives of many adults in America.  Many of us remember the shock and horror we felt on 9-11.  We were dismayed that something so horrible could happen to America.  We wondered how this could possibly happen.  Nothing anyone said made sense of it.  Nothing made us feel better.  I expect those same feelings to return tomorrow.  I find that when all seems lost, the best therapy is to find something to laugh about.  Thus I am sharing some of my favorite videos.  We’ve seen them before, but they still make us laugh.  Laugh with me to keep from crying.
