    King Donald the First withheld Constitutionally-approved military aid from Ukraine and dangled it as a bribe in order to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to dig up dirt on Joe Biden, King Donald's likely political rival in 2020. On October 17, King Donald's chief of staff Mick Mulvaney confirmed the quid-pro-quo offer to reporters, telling them, "It happens all the time. Get over it." King Donald gets rid of everyone whom he thinks is disloyal to him and doesn't lie to protect him. Mulvaney somehow managed to hang on to his job for five months.

    Trump replaces chief of staff Mick Mulvaney with staunch ally Mark Meadows

    In the White House that Emperor Trump defines as a "smooth-running machine," sooner or later everyone either resigns or gets fired.

    I repeat what I said above: In the kingdom ruled by King Donald the First, sooner or later almost everyone either resigns or gets fired. The only ones who remain are those who are 100% loyal to King Donald. That means putting King Donald's interests above the good of the nation. One hundred seventy-one days till election day.

    Trump fires State Department watchdog critical of agency
    The Associated Press, May 16 2020 12:35 AM

    President Donald Trump has fired the State Department's inspector general, an Obama administration appointee whose office was critical of alleged political bias in the agency's management. The ouster is the latest in a series of moves against independent executive branch watchdogs who have found fault with the Trump administration. A senior department official said Trump removed Steve Linick from his job on Friday but gave no reason for his ouster. In a letter to Congress, Trump said Linick, who had held the job since 2013, no longer had his full confidence and that his removal would take effect in 30 days.

    Democrats in Congress immediately cried foul, with the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee suggesting that Linick was fired in part in retaliation for opening an unspecified investigation into Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. "This firing is the outrageous act of a President trying to protect one of his most loyal supporters, the secretary of state, from accountability," New York Representative Eliot Engel said in a statement.

    Wow, what a shocker! Our nation's Attorney General is actually showing a bit of a spine – although you'll notice he still didn't contradict King Donald's accusations and allegations. In 2016, Trump did everything he could to attack Hillary Clinton. In 2020, he's doing everything he can to attack Joe Biden. Sad.

    Barr says it's unlikely Justice Department will investigate Obama or Biden
    NBC News, May 18 2020 1:34 PM

    Attorney General William Barr said today he does not expect the Justice Department to probe former President Barack Obama or former Vice President Joe Biden as part of its review of the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Speaking at a news conference to discuss a shooting at a Florida naval base last year, Barr was asked about President Donald Trump's suggestion that Obama and Biden committed crimes. Saying he was not specifically taking issue with Trump's remarks, Barr criticized "increasing attempts to use the criminal justice system as a political weapon. The legal tactic has been to gin up allegations of criminality by one's political opponents based on the flimsiest of legal theories. This is not a good development." Barr then dismissed the idea that US Attorney John Durham, who is overseeing the review of the FBI probe, would investigate Obama or Biden, though he declined to say who Durham is targeting.

    King Donald the First is a vain, pompous, narcissistic, egotistical buffoon who viciously attacks everyone who dares to contradict him or disagree with him: Democrats, Army generals, war heroes, world leaders, medical experts, the FBI, our intelligence agencies, everyone. King Donald also considers himself to be a "stable genius." That makes his remarks about Jeff Sessions all the more amusing:

    Trump claims Jeff Sessions was not 'mentally qualified' to be Attorney General as feud escalates
    Trump’s criticism of his former appointee is just the latest in a years-long battle.

    On February 5, Senate Republicans acquitted Donald Trump on two articles of impeachment: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. By their vote, they turned the President into a King, an autocrat who is above the law and above the Constitution and can abuse his power with impunity. Thus, this headline is not surprising. King Donald is all-powerful – and he knows it.

    President Trump continues to claim broad powers he doesn't have

    King Donald the First, same as all the kings, tyrants, dicators and autocrats who have preceded him, seeks to silence his critics. Never mind that he does nothing but lie and he's going after all those who tell the truth, his galaxy-sized ego just can't tolerate anyone who dares to criticize him. Of course King Donald will never get rid of his Twitter account. Twitter, his campaign rallies and his phony press conferences are his main outlets for spreading his lies. "I am able to refute fake news and that's very important," King Donald declared. Is he insane? Answer: yes. Yes he is. Everything he says is fake! And of course King Donald doesn't care about the First Amendment and freedom of speech. In Trumpworld, freedom of speech is meant for him and no one else.

    Well, we now know what is of supreme importance to King Donald. For four months, he ignored the coronavirus threat. When Twitter decided to fact-check his tweets, he took "executive action" less than 24 hours later. Twitter is King Donald's main outlet for spreading his lies, accusations, exaggerations and threats and keeping his base stirred up. There have been three nights (so far) of protests and demonstrations in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd, a black man who said he couldn't breathe as a white police officer used his knee to pin Floyd down. King Donald wants to send the National Guard to Minneapolis. "When the looting starts, the shooting starts," he declared. That incendiary comment violates Twitter's policy forbidding tweets that glorify violence. Twitter did not remove King Donald's tweet but did hide it behind a warning label. That action, of course, made him even angrier. He is threatening further action against Twitter. If he could legally issue an "Off with their heads!" order, he would do so.

    Trump tweets threat that 'looting' will lead to 'shooting.' Twitter put a warning label on it.

    The G7 is "an outdated group of countries." Thus decrees King Donald the First. Who knows what he means by that? And he managed to insult six of our allies all at once. Typical.

    Trump postponing the G7 to at least September
    CNN, May 30 2020 9:43 PM PT

    President Donald Trump has announced he is postponing the G7 until at least September and wants to invite four additional countries to the summit: Russia, Australia, India and South Korea. "I'm postponing it because I don't feel as a G7 it probably represents what's going on in the world. It's a very outdated group of countries," Trump told reporters today aboard Air Force One. The G7 is comprised of the US, Canada, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and Japan.

    Twitter launched in July 2006. King Donald, our nation's Tweeter-In-Chief, has 81,000,000 followers on Twitter. (Barack Obama has 119,000.000.) King Donald keeps his blindly loyal followers stirred up by tweeting a never-ending barrage of lies, accusations, exaggerations, misinformation and conspiracy theories and continually attacking Democrats and the news media. Fifty-four percent of Americans want him to stop. He won't. Ever. Nobody tells King Donald what to do!
