Emperor  Donald  J.  Trump
U.S. President/Emperor #45, 2017-2021?

Republican Donald Trump is a fascist and a multiple bankrupt and a racist and a crook and a sexist pig;
the really sad part is that Trump was the best that the Republican Party could come up with to run for President of the U.S.A.
And then a large number of racist, xenophobic, reality-averse dimwits elected the man President!

If Donald Trump was a legitimate official under the U.S. Constitution, the original real estate tycoon Donald J. Trump Page would include
his term as President. But things as they are require a split: this second page is for Emperor Trump and his fascist administration.

Trump is not the first loony to be Emperor of The United States: there also was Emperor Norton I [1818-80] who reigned in San Francisco for twenty years.

“Donald Trump is a unique threat to American democracy. He is unfit for the presidency and cannot be endorsed.
A Trump presidency would be dangerous for the nation and the world.” — Washington Post Editorial Board, 22 July 2016

“Donald Trump won, America lost.” — G.E. Nordell

“Trump [is] a fascist. Not in the sense of an all-purpose bad guy, but in the sense of somebody who sincerely believes that the toxic combination
of strong government and strong corporations should run the nation and the world.” — columnist Michael Kinsley, Dec 2016

“He who establishes his argument by noise and command, shows that his reason is weak.” — essayist Michel De Montaigne [1533-92]

“We made our mistakes back in the XXth century, Lord knows, but we never nominated a man for president who brags about not reading . . . When I envision
a Trump Presidential Library, I see enormous chandeliers and gold carpet and a thousand slot machines. God help us. I mean it. We’re in trouble down here.”
— author & radio personality Garrison Keillor

“So the people have spoken, giving the finger to the Washington Consensus and electing an admitted sexual predator and proven prevaricator
so lacking in impulse control that he spent the early morning hours of one day cyberbullying a beauty pageant contestant he had once
humiliated in person. Strike up 'Hail To The Chief'.”   — journalist Lou Dubose

White House Staff Secretary
Rob Porter - appointed 20 January 2017, resigned 7 February 2018
Porter resigned after news of past allegations of spousal abuse made by Porter's two ex-wives was widely reported in the media, immediately bringing questions about why Porter was allowed to keep his job for so long; White House spokespeople said that the F.B.I. first contacted them in Summer 2017 about Porter's pending security status, and that they didn't know the extent of the allegations because his background investigation was never completed. F.B.I. Director Christopher Wray quickly contradicted the White House spin, telling the Senate Intelligence Committee that the F.B.I. submitted a partial report on Porter's security clearance in March 2017, and completed the initial review in July of 2017.

A  Few  Important  Dates

  • 2006 July: Donald Trump participated in the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course at Lake Tahoe, Nevada and also had 'sexual encounters' with porn star Stormy Daniels. (Trump's personal lawyer paid her $130,000 in hush money during the 2016 presidential campaign.)
    click to see official photo of Donald & Stormy at Lake Tahoe in 2006

Thus, Emperor Trump was immediately in violation of his Oath of Office, and lawsuits were filed and petitions begun.

    2017 Sixth Week - February 26-March 4

  • 2018 January: Emperor Trump's lawyers issued an un-Constitutional 'cease and desist' letter against a book by journalist Michael Wolff with reporting on six months of direct access to the internal mess that is the Trump White House.

  • 2018 Jan 30: Emperor Trump's first State of The Union address, before Congress and on live television (the usual blah-blah-blah). He tweeted next day that his audience of 45.6 million people was the highest number in history.

Bush's State of the Union address in 2003 drew 62 million viewers, and Bill Clinton's joint session speech in 1993 drew 67 million viewers.

    2018 13th Month - February

    "If the Dow Joans ever falls more than 1,000 'points' in a Single Day the sitting president should be loaded
    into a very big cannon and Shot into the sun at TREMENDOUS SPEED! No Excuses!" {sic}
    — tweet from {hash} realDonaldTrump on 29 February 2015

    Pussy novel satirizing Donald Trump by Howard Jacobson  "Pussy: A Novel" [2017] by Howard Jacobson
    Prince Fracassus passes his boyhood watching reality shows on TV, imagining himself to be the Roman Emperor Nero, and fantasizing about hookers. He is idle, boastful, thin-skinned, and egotistic; he has no manners, no curiosity, no knowledge, no idea, and no words in which to express them. Could he, in that case, be the very leader to make the country great again?

    [streaming Nov 2017, DVD release Dec 2017]
    Trumping Democracy 2017 documentary film by Thomas Huchon  "In the darkness of the web, democracy was trumped by data." • Explosive documentary that follows the money in the 2016 election cycle to the elusive billionaire Robert Mercer, who bought Breitbart News and funded the effort while inserting Steve Bannon into the presidential campaign as its manager. Mercer-owned company Cambridge Analytica used data of millions of Americans – acquired from Facebook, Google, banks, credit companies, social security, and more – and tactics honed during the U.K.'s Brexit campaign to identify voters deemed 'most neurotic or worried', whom they believed could swing for Trump. In the days before the election, using a little-known Facebook feature called 'dark posts', Cambridge Analytica deployed highly manipulative & personalized messages seen only one time by the user before disappearing. • 69-minute documentary film directed by Thomas Huchon
