up to and including day 78 but mostly just the last week or so

220 cities will lose passenger train service because of Trump's elimination of all federal funding for Amtrak's National Network Trains, hurting the very communities he promised to help.

Self admitted sexual predator Trump doesn't think sexual predator Bill O'Reilly did anything wrong.

Trump's Department of Homeland Security is trampling on the 1st amendment by pressuring Twitter to reveal the identity of the rogue DHS Twitter account.

Trump claims to have the most successful 13 week presidency to date while he has been in office 11 weeks.

Trump's nominee for FDA Commissioner, Dr. Scott Gottlieb, thinks the FDA puts too much emphasis on consumer protection. Think about that. He also has received tens of thousands of dollars in speaking fees from the opioid industry, specifically the makers of oxycodone, has lobbied on their behalf, and doesn't believe it should be restrained or held accountable for it's part in the opioid epidemic in this country.

Military strikes under Trump have killed over 1,000 innocent civilians in Iraq and Syria in the month of March alone.

After scorning Syrian refugees and trying to refuse them entry, Trump cries crocodile tears for the victims after Assad's gas attack.

After claiming that HRC would be a warmonger during the campaign, Trump has refused to fill State Department positions essential for diplomacy and negotiating with foreign countries and instead bypassed Congress and launched an air missile attack on Syria in an act of war, an act that is illegal by our own laws and also by international law.

Trump informed Russia of the impending missile attack on Syria before he informed Congress. Syria was also informed and evacuated personnel and equipment in advance of the attack which destroyed six broken planes and a mess hall and left the runways and other essential buildings intact and killed several civilians.

Trump owns stock in the company that makes the missiles and profits every time one is used.

Trump basically gave his son-in-law Jared Kushner the task of being president.

After cutting funding to the Interior Department by $1.5 billion in his budget, Trump makes a show of donating the first three months of his salary, $78K, to the Park Service which is funded by the Interior Department.

Trump visits one of his properties every 2.8 days thereby transferring money from the National Treasury to himself. He plays golf every 5.6 days.

In another act of vindictiveness against former President Obama, the Republican Congress with bill H.R. 226, wants to rescind the elephant ivory protections that have been in place since 2014 thereby ensuring the continued poaching of elephants which are already on the endangered species list.

Perjurer AG Jeff Sessions says he will not renew the National Commission on Forensic Science, a roughly 30-member advisory panel of scientists, judges, crime lab leaders, prosecutors and defense lawyers chartered by the Obama administration in 2013.

In 3 months, Trump has already spent almost double Obama's annual travel budget and this does not include the cost of protecting his 3 residences...White House, Mar A Lago, NY penthouse.

Tourism is down markedly in response to Trump's attempted travel bans and the heightened security checks at the border including demanding traveler's phones, passwords, contact lists, and social media accounts as well as more extreme 'pat downs' and the risk of being detained. Mexicans in particular are going to Canada instead.

Trump's White House...one word. Nepotism.

Not satisfied with the illegal bombing of Syria, Trump is poking the hornet's nest by sending warships, under orders to take an aggressive stance, to patrol North Korea.

Already under investigation by the FBI and both houses of Congress, the Government Accountability Office has announced an investigation of Trump’s presidential transition over conflicts of interest.

AG Jeff Sessions, in a speech to border patrol agents on the US/Mexico border, refers to illegal immigrants as 'filth'. This is a new era,” he said. “This is the Trump era.”

WH Spokesperson Sean Spicer, in some sort of weird defense of Trump, claimed that not even Hitler gassed his own people. Let that sink in.

Trump stripped protection of our smaller bodies of water and rivers by rescinding Obama's Clean Water Rule giving industry permission to dump toxic waste in these smaller bodies that are essential for the population's drinking water and health of wildlife.


  1. Oh god, Ellen. I wish this were just a nightmare we could wake up from.

    1. I know, right? And so many people are so ill informed that they have no idea what the fuck is going on.

  2. And what did we do? What can we do? I am sure there is action going on behind the scenes, but until I see some concrete results of that action...I just want to scream. Thank you for posting all this information - the nightmare glides forward.

  3. The horror continues. Every week has more horrible decisions.

  4. I fear Trump will start WWIII, and that will be he end. There seems to be little diplomacy but lots of Twitter.

  5. This post needs to go on every front page of every newspaper in America.

  6. And that's only half of it!! Look what the GOP is doing in the House and Senate while we are so distracted with Trump's pompous world. It's not just him it's ALL OF THEM! VOTE Blue in NOV to regain control and equality!! It's the only tool we have to rectify the situation.


I opened my big mouth, now it's your turn.
