Welcome to  Week 2 of the Top Trumps. It was slightly less about his personal Twitter bullshittery and more about US intelligence agencies saying that Russia intervened in the 2016 Election in his favour. Trump continues to tweet late at night and respond with venom to those who dare criticise him.

He gloated on Twitter about the media, again.

He denied reports that he would still work on The Apprentice now that he is, you know, president-elect. He said in the space of 140 characters that he has nothing to do with the show, and that he has a huge stake in its success/continuance.

Trump continues to stuff his cabinet with old, nearly dead white men. So far the only black person is Ben Carson for Housing and Urban Development. This is a man who not only has publicly stated that poverty is a choice and that he believes evolutionary biology is promoted actively by Satan, but a man Trump criticised in this bizarre rant about only a year ago:

“I’m not saying anything other than pathological is a very serious disease. And he said he’s pathological, somebody said he has pathological disease,” Mr Trump told CNN.

“You don’t cure these people. You don’t cure a child molester. There’s no cure for it. Pathological, there’s no cure for that.” – The Independent

What?

Trump also called into question the usefulness of the CIA and other intelligence agencies. He openly criticised them, which appears to be unique in the history of the USA. It’s also clear that he does not value their work or information, since he is opting out of intelligence briefings in favour of tweeting and his ‘Thank You’ tour.

I find the ‘Thank You’ tour terrifying in some ways.

This is a weekly post for the foreseeable future in which I summarise what new hells Trump has visited upon us all in a convenient bulleted list. I follow this with the video of me burning him in effigy on Gwangalli Beach the weekend before the election in 2016. I refuse to normalise his rule.
