Trumpery!
 
Given that he has about fifty days to go, and can do a whole lotta crazy things in that time, I thought it might be good to have a thread, separate from the election one, where we can discuss the TrumpWorld and talk about the madcap decisions made by the man who is currently still the most powerful in the world.

I hear he, or someone in his administration, is now offering presidential pardons for cash. Surely if that can be proven it has to break some law, something in the constitution, something about using the executive office for your own gain?

Note: I will be upfront and admit that all my news comes from CNN, so if I get something wrong I'm sure one of you more politically-woke people will let me know.

...

Can you tell me what the term „trumpery“ means?

Perhaps it is more interesting what Trump does after these 50 days. Perhaps he will go on as a youtube influencer and superspreader of conspiracy theories. :)

I think Trump will produce a lot of stuff for comedians.

Trumpery: noun - meaning: any activity promoted by, indulged in by or as a result of anything the 45th President of the USA did after he lost the election in 2020. Trumpery includes, but is not limited to, rants, tweets, firings, hirings, withdrawals from treaties, spreading rumours, holding superspreader Coronavirus events, pardons and strange changes to US law.

I think a lot of US and non-US people have been surprised at how much good governmental conduct is just based on traditional norms that people follow. Trump has shown the extent to which such guard rails just fall over if you give them a push.

Ones that surprised me:-

Trading off tax-payers' money to get yourself a political favour from Ukraine.
Because The Pres can't be indicted, he can't be accused of a crime. (Mueller)
The Hatch Act: it's illegal for federal employees to use their office to promote commercial brands, but if they do, that's ok too. Kellyanne Conway was the first to show what a papertiger this Act was, which opened the doors to these shameless Federal employees:-

All the "emmoluments" laws also seem to be, like the Hatch Act, completely toothless."This is illegal, and if you do it, we'll let you. So there."

(Note: some legislative details may have been simplified in the writing of this post.)

And this is why representative democracy is a beautiful sham.

It's hard to believe Trump going to Georgia (Devil went down to Georgia, eh?) is going to help the two senators there keep their seats. I mean, he is guaranteed to start yowling about the election being rigged, which is going to make it hard for Republican voters to trust the process, so why bother? Plus you have that basket-case lawyer actually advising people not to vote! And he hasn't spoken about that, either to support or overrule her! So what are they supposed to think? Could be the worst move he could make. Let's hope so, then maybe the Dems can get control of the senate and the stupid, plastic, ****-eating grins will be wiped off the faces of those two ****s when they lose their seats.
