#THETRUMPDUMP FEB 10, 2017: ‘THE FAKE THAT NEVER FADES’..CONTINUES..OBVIOUSLY

‘What is fake, what is genuine’ can be matter of rhetoric, deception, subjectivity or logic based on which side of the fulcrum you are.

When it comes to politics, it is mostly about rhetoric, deception and subjectivity – all impregnated in different hues of relativities.

And when it comes to a politician like Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America, that also makes him the most powerful person on the Earth, it is always about extreme proportions of relativistic interpretations.

So, even if all the rational thinking souls, including some of the US judges (in fact all so far) think that the Trump administration’s a bad idea that would make the people of the US look fools before the world, Trump thinks otherwise.

And continuing his ‘otherwise’ stand, he is busy blasting the US Judiciary these days on his most preferred platform, Twitter.

While a crucial hearing on his travel ban was due in Virginia today, he, again, grandiosely, proclaimed that he would meet other in the court ‘to save his nation from some imminent threat’.

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump
SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!

Now it is ironical that the court, where he is looking for his saviour, is also the institution he so despises that he terms the whole US Judicial System as of ‘third-world countries’ and ‘rigged’.

But like it happens, apart from his dwindling support base, that has made him the US President to begin his term with historically low approval ratings, no one is buying his words, and that happened in the Virginia hearing as well.

According to media reports, the Virginia judge has ‘blasted Trump travel ban citing lack of evidence of any threats’, as a USA Today piece puts it. A Washington Post report, quoting the Virginia District Judge Leonie M. Brinkema, says that “the courts have been begging Trump to provide some evidence, and none has been forthcoming.”

“The presidential order, she said, “has all kinds of defects” and “clearly is overreaching” when it comes to long-term residents of the United States”, the Post report says. In fact, alluding to the freedom of religion, the judge goes on to question the motivation behind this ‘immigration ban’ decision saying that “there is some strong, colorful evidence that the motivations for this order may bump into the establishment clause of the First Amendment”, the report says. The First Amendment of the US Constitution guarantees the ‘Freedom of Religion’.

Trump’s travel ban order has seen some very tough, hostile reactions but this one, and that too from a federal judge, is the most stinging so far.

Trump has not tweeted (so far) on it. Let’s see how he reacts (or what he tweets)!

#THETRUMPDUMP FEB 9, 2017: FAKE THAT NEVER FADES

Trump is on his favourite targets, in fact one his favourite targets out of many, to populate the mircroblogging site with his wisdom.

Yes, it is about slamming the media again, with his pet ‘FAKE NEWS’ attribute.

He says since he won the Presidential polls, media outfits have run 16 fake stories, and he has based his proclamation on a proclamation by a media that he probably saw was not fake.

While he feels disgraced on being denied his full cabinet yet, he finds time for digging out information that even if Senator Richard Blumenthal never fought in Vietnam, Chris Cuomo, in interviewing him, never asked any question on this line.

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump
Sen. Richard Blumenthal, who never fought in Vietnam when he said for years he had (major lie), now misrepresents what Judge Gorsuch told him?
Chris Cuomo, in his interview with Sen. Blumenthal, never asked him about his long-term lie about his brave “service” in Vietnam. FAKE NEWS!

Meanwhile, in his trademark style, he doesn’t forget to remind people what surveys about his ‘grand travel ban’ executive order is saying. He says his supporters (or can we say people here?) are simply mesmerized at this ‘immigration ban’ decision.

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump
‘Majority in Leading EU Nations Support Trump-Style Travel Ban’ – Poll of more than 10,000 people in 10 countries…

And yes, he also tweets a survey that places the ‘truthfulness’ of his administration above media – ‘Trump administration seen as more truthful than news media’ http://bit.ly/2k4b0imEmersonPoll …’

It is a Donald Trump world where anything that concerns him never fades, irrespective of what the world thinks.
