Twitter User Reminds Everyone of The Dumbest Things Trump Did In The Last 4 Years


Whether or not President Donald Trump is impeached, his time in office is coming to an end. So, to recap the wild ride that has been the last 4 years, Jules Suzdaltsev invited people to take a moment to remember some of the stupidest and weirdest things Trump has done and said during his term.

Since Trump’s almost out of office, I figured this would be a fun time to remind everyone of the weirdest & dumbest sh*t our failed dictator did in the last four years that we totally forgot about.

So much for what Trump did wrong, now here is what Biden will / may do to bring things back to reality:

Biden to use executive actions to roll back Trump policies on 1st day in office


In his first hours as U.S. president, Joe Biden plans to take executive action to roll back some of the most controversial decisions of his predecessor and to address the raging coronavirus pandemic, his incoming chief of staff said Saturday.

The opening salvo would herald a 10-day blitz of executive actions as Biden seeks to act swiftly to redirect the country in the wake of Donald Trump's presidency without waiting for Congress.


On Wednesday, following his inauguration, Biden will end Trump's restriction on immigration to the U.S. from some Muslim-majority countries, move to rejoin the Paris climate accord and mandate mask-wearing on federal property and during interstate travel. Those are among roughly a dozen actions the incoming Democratic president will take on his first day in the White House, his incoming chief of staff, Ron Klain, said in a memo to senior staff.

Other actions include extending the pause on student loan payments and actions meant to prevent evictions and foreclosures for those struggling during the pandemic.

The huge security rollout in Washington, D.C., ahead of the presidential inauguration on Jan. 20 is because there is not a good grasp of intelligence, says security expert Christian Leuprecht, and officials don't want a repeat of the Capitol security breach on Jan. 6. 5:33

"These executive actions will deliver relief to the millions of Americans that are struggling in the face of these crises," Klain said in the memo. "President-elect Biden will take action — not just to reverse the gravest damages of the Trump administration, but also to start moving our country forward."

"Full achievement" of Biden's goals will require Congress to act, Klain said, including the $1.9 trillion US virus relief bill he outlined on Thursday. Klain said that Biden would also propose a comprehensive immigration reform bill to lawmakers on his first day in office.

The next day, Jan. 21, Klain said Biden will sign orders related to the COVID-19 outbreak aimed at reopening schools and businesses and expanding COVID-19 testing. The following day will see action on providing economic relief to those suffering the economic costs of the pandemic.

In the following week, Klain said, Biden plans to take additional action relating to criminal justice reform, climate change and immigration — including a directive to speed the reuniting of families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border under Trump's policies.

More actions will be added, Klain said, once they clear legal review.

U.S. president-elect Joe Biden has unveiled a $1.9 trillion coronavirus plan to turn the tide on the pandemic, speeding up the vaccine rollout and providing financial help to individuals, governments and businesses. 5:24

Incoming presidents traditionally move swiftly to sign an array of executive actions when they take office. Trump did the same, but he found many of his orders challenged and even rejected by courts.

Klain maintained that Biden should not suffer similar issues, saying that "the legal theory behind them is well founded and represents a restoration of an appropriate, constitutional role for the president."

Just like I’ve been saying from the start of this charade. Biden the puppet!


Susan Rice will be 'shadow president' in Biden administration

'I think you need to watch Susan Rice very closely,' former acting DNI says

Former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice has been tapped to lead the White House Domestic Policy Council in the Biden administration, but former acting DNI Ric Grenell believes she could be in control of a lot more.

"I think you need to watch Susan Rice very closely," he said on "Sunday Morning Futures." "She will be the shadow president."

Grenell called Biden’s pick "interesting" considering Rice has no experience in domestic policy but nonetheless will be "incredibly influential" under the new administration.

"I think the reality is, she’s going to be running foreign policy, domestic policy," he said. "She’s probably extremely happy that Kamala Harris is going to be preoccupied with the Senate… and won’t have a lot of time to get into policy issues."

Grenell theorized that the Democrats elected Biden because he could be swayed.

"We saw him raise his hand during the Democratic primary for some really radical ideas," he said. "The progressives have clearly taken over him… And Susan Rice being right there at the White House to be the shadow president is probably exactly where she wants to be.

FBI vetting Guard troops in DC amid fears of insider attack

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. defense officials say they are worried about an insider attack or other threat from service members involved in securing President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, prompting the FBI to vet all of the 25,000 National Guard troops coming into Washington for the event.

“The question is, is that all of them? Are there others?”

US Gun Stores Are Running Out Of Weapons And Ammo Ahead Of Biden's Inauguration

Ahead of Joe Biden's inauguration this week, gun stores across America have seen an incredible uptick in the number of sales. 

Store owners owners say they cannot keep up with demand and are running out of ammunition and running low on guns.

It comes at a time where security has been beefed up unlike we've ever seen before in Washington D.C to let Joe Biden be inaugurated in peace. 

More than 6,200 National Guard personnel have been deployed in anticipation of unrest in the coming days.



As Joe Biden's big day drew closer, the apparent need for guns has exploded. 

According to WIBW, the last four to five months alone have seen a whopping 18 million new gun buyers.

"The year 2020 has been just one long advertisement for why someone may want to have a firearm to defend themselves," said Douglas Jefferson, the vice president for the National African American Gun Association. 

The Association has seen the biggest increase in membership this year since its launch in 2015.


Topeka gun store owner Floyd McMillin believes the surge in gun sales comes as a result of distrust in the government.

"They'll say whatever they say to get elected, but so many people take it like a grain of salt and so they get so worried about that they think they're going to try to take their guns," he said.

Well, you have to realise that the gun industry itself, it produces billions of dollars in revenue for the United States.

"They'll never get it done. They can vote all they want but it'll never go through because they cannot change the second amendment and our rights as Americans."

He added that Gun Garage made more than $50,000 in sales this past Saturday alone, shattering their previous record.

The FBI has received intelligence that armed protests have been planned in all 50 US states in the coming days.

CNN obtained a document from the FBI that states 'armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitols from 16 January through at least 20 January, and at the US Capitol from 17 January through 20 January'.

"They have warned that if Congress attempts to remove POTUS via the 25th Amendment, a huge uprising will occur," adds a bulletin seen by ABC News.

Guess what Joe...the fun’s about to start :icon_super:

A migrant caravan moving from Honduras toward the U.S. border called on the incoming Biden administration to honor their  "commitments" to the migrants moving north, citing the incoming administration's vow to ease Trump's restrictions on asylum.


Biden transition official tells migrant caravans: 'Now is not the time' to come to US

A migrant caravan moving from Honduras toward the U.S. border called on the incoming Biden administration to honor their  "commitments" to the migrants moving north, citing the incoming administration's vow to ease Trump's restrictions on asylum


The Associated Press reported that they are hoping for a warmer reception when they reach the U.S. border, and a statement issued by migrant rights group Pueblo Sin Fronteras, on behalf of the caravan, said it expects the Biden administration to take action.

The Biden transition official, however, warned migrants against coming to the U.S. during the early days of the new administration, telling NBC that while "there's help on the way," now "is not the time to make the journey." 

"The situation at the border isn't going to be transformed overnight," the official told the outlet.

In inaugural address, Biden will appeal to national unity; Biden’s long political evolution leads to biggest test; Deceptions in the time of the ‘alternative facts’ president 


Joe Biden will deliver an appeal to national unity when he's sworn in Wednesday and plans immediate moves to combat the coronavirus pandemic and undo some of Donald Trump’s most controversial policies, according to his incoming chief of staff.

 The Associated Press <morningwire@apnews.com>

Biden intends a series of executive actions in his first hours after his inauguration, an opening salvo in what is shaping up as a 10-day blitz of steps to reorient the country without waiting for Congress. In his address to the nation, Biden will deliver “a message of moving this country forward. A message of unity. A message of getting things done.” Zeke Miller reports.


VIDEO: Biden faces unrivaled challenges as he takes oath.


In the meantime, Democrats are building their case for convicting Trump in his second impeachment trial. The lead House prosecutor alleged that Trump's incitement of a mob at the Capitol was “the most dangerous crime” ever committed by a president.


Democrats have not yet said when they will send the impeachment article to the Senate, which is needed before Trump's trial can begin, Lisa Mascaro and Mary Clare Jalonick report.


Biden Evolution: Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. has navigated a half-century in American politics by relentlessly positioning himself at the core of the Democratic Party. Wherever that power center shifted, Biden was there. The common thread was Biden framing himself as a mainstream liberal but also a pragmatist who still insists that governing well depends on compromise and consensus. Now Biden’s central political identity faces the ultimate trial. On Wednesday, he will inherit stewardship of a nation wrenched by pandemic, seismic cultural fissures and an opposition party’s base that considers him illegitimate, even to the point of Trump’s supporters violently attacking the U.S. Capitol as Congress convened to certify Biden’s victory, Bill Barrow reports.


Changing Presidency: When President-elect Biden takes the oath of office, he'll begin to reshape the the presidency. And he'll do it as a time when the nation is bitterly divided and struggling with a pandemic and an insurrection meant to stop his ascension to power. Biden had campaigned as a rebuke to Trump, whose political power was fueled by discord and grievance. The Democrat framed his election as one to “heal the soul” of the nation restore the White House image as a symbol of stability and credibility. Incendiary tweets will be out and policy briefings will be in as Biden looks to change the tone and priorities of the office, Jonathan Lemire reports.


INAUGURATION EXPLAINER: Biden's event will be very different, Ashraf Khalil reports.


Harris' Role: Kamala Harris will make history when she becomes the nation’s first female vice president — and the first Black woman and the first woman of South Asian descent to hold that office. But that’s only where her boundary-breaking role begins. A confluence of crises confronts the Biden administration, and an evenly divided Senate means that she will break any tie votes. Harris is shaping up to be a central player in addressing everything from the pandemic to criminal justice reform, Alexandra Jaffe reports.


Senate Control: What does a 50-50 Senate get Biden? The unexpected new balance of power giving Democrats only the barest control of Congress has immediate consequences for the president-elect, including easy confirmation of his Cabinet. But it offers only modest hope for his ambitious legislative agenda. Republicans will remain poised to block most of Biden’s proposals, just as they thwarted much of President Barack Obama’s efforts on Capitol Hill. But 50/50 control permits action on special legislation that can’t be filibustered. Momentum for the popular parts of COVID-19 relief could easily propel an early aid bill into law, Andrew Taylor reports.


The Departure Note: As he was preparing to leave the White House in January 1989, President Ronald Reagan wanted to write a note to his successor, George H.W. Bush. He reached for a pad emblazoned with cartoon turkeys and the phrase “Don’t Let the Turkeys Get You Down.” Thus began the tradition of outgoing presidents leaving a handwritten message in the Oval Office for their successors. Despite losing to Bill Clinton in the bitter 1992 election, Bush followed Reagan's lead: “Your success now is our country’s success. I am rooting hard for you. Good luck — George,” he wrote. The tradition is in doubt this year, when Trump has vowed not to attend Biden’s inauguration and has pushed the baseless claim that the election was stolen, Will Weissert reports.


Moving Day: Inauguration Day is also moving day at the White House. It's typically a precision operation carried out in about five hours as the residence staff labors to move out one leader and settle in another. The clock starts ticking when the outgoing and incoming presidents leave the White House together for the swearing-in ceremony. But things will unfold a bit differently this year after Trump said he is skipping the event. The pandemic is another complicating factor. Darlene Superville reports. 


Trump Legacy-Truth: Truth caught up with Donald Trump after years of giving chase.

The twice-impeached president painted a fantasy world in office, starring himself. In this world, he did things bigger, better, more boldly than all who came before him while facing enemies more pernicious than any in creation. Fact-checking became a cottage industry unto itself during his tenure. And “alternative facts" became a buzzphrase, coined by one of his admiring aides.


By now it has been thoroughly documented that Trump invented his own reality to suit his goals and his temperament. In his second impeachment, he is charged by the House with inciting an insurrection, with his falsehoods about a “stolen” election at the heart of it all. One of the Democrats who voted to impeach Trump, says Trump leaves a legacy of  “magical thinking...totally cut apart from the world of facts.”  Calvin Woodward reports.


VIDEO: Trump leaves a destructive presidential legacy. 


Trump Legacy-Foreign Policy: Biden’s plan to scrap Trump’s vision of “America First” in favor of “diplomacy first” will depend on whether he’s able to regain the trust of allies and convince them that Trumpism is just a blip in the annals of U.S. foreign policy. It could be a hard sell. From Europe to the Middle East and Asia, Trump's brand of transactional diplomacy has alienated friends and foes alike, leaving Biden with a particularly contentious set of national security issues, Deb Riechmann and Matthew Lee report.


Voter Portraits: After more than 1,400 days of Trump’s presidency — including two bitter elections, two impeachments, more than 26,000 presidential tweets and four years of near-constant upheaval — it is left to American voters to tally it all up. The AP talked with Americans of all political stripes and asked them to assess this moment in their country’s history. While some expressed confidence that the days ahead will find the nation in a better place, others said they were fearful of the future, whether because of the violence displayed at the Capitol or because of concerns about the incoming Biden administration.

Sample Comment: 

“ Because this is what's most important right now. Not covid, not the economy, not the hoards of people trying to illegally enter our country, not the fact that our country is split down the middle and may never reunite again. But what toilet someone takes a piss in. That is so important that he needs to address it on day 1. Way to go Joe. Way to go...”

A return to normal is coming quickly...


Biden Plans 10 Days of Action on Four ‘Overlapping’ Crises

President-elect Joe Biden plans an early blitz of executive action to reverse some of President Donald Trump’s most contentious policies and address the coronavirus pandemic, according to an outline of Biden’s first 10 days in office.


The plan, spelled out in a memo Saturday by Biden Chief of Staff Ron Klain to incoming White House advisers, will address what Klain called “four overlapping and compounding crises.”


They are the Covid-19 pandemic that has claimed close to 400,000 U.S. lives, the resulting economic downturn, climate change, and a national reckoning over racial equity in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement.


“In his first 10 days in office, President-elect Biden will take decisive action to address these four crises, prevent other urgent and irreversible harms, and restore America’s place in the world,” Klain wrote. “President-elect Biden will take action -- not just to reverse the gravest damages of the Trump administration -- but also to start moving our country forward.”

Just a heads up, anyone who thinks the current PONTAS will take Canadian Interests into consideration is just plain stupid. He is elected to put the US first and we are definitely not in the first column. I guess however time will tell how we make out and what we will have to concede to receive any consideration.

Biden revokes presidential permit for Keystone XL pipeline expansion on 1st day


Trudeau Government Immediately Folds On Keystone XL

When news reports first emerged that Joe Biden was planning to cancel the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline on day one of being in office, the Trudeau government mused about how they supported the pipeline and how they would push back, at least trying to make the case for its importance.

They didn’t.

Instead, it turns out they simply folded immediately.

“The Canadian government was formally notified that President Biden would cancel Keystone XL late last night, a source says. The govt says they will accept the President’s decisions and will not fight to change his mind on a key campaign promise”


So after they heard Biden would cancel it, they just gave in.


Those words, “will not fight,” are going to cause many Canadians to feel hurt and abandoned by the federal government.

The Trudeau Liberals were willing to bend the rules, boot out their own Attorney General, and court massive scandal, all to try and protect SNC-Lavalin, but for a pipeline that is so important for the economic future of Alberta, they simply rolled over.

It’s this kind of disparate treatment of different provinces and different industries that has led to much of the regional division we see in Canada today, and that may only deepen as people learn how little effort the Liberal government put into standing up for Canadian jobs.

I don't think the new administration will be doing anything about this.  

As it says, it is mostly symbolic, yet what a message it sends.


China hits Trump officials with sanctions on their way out

WASHINGTON - China imposed sanctions on nearly 30 former Trump administration officials moments after they left office on Wednesday.

In a statement released just minutes after President Joe Biden was inaugurated, Beijing slapped travel bans and business restrictions on Trump’s secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, national security adviser Robert O’Brien and U.N. ambassador, Kelly Craft.

Others covered by the sanctions include Trump’s economic adviser Peter Navarro; his top diplomat for Asia, David Stilwell; health and human services secretary, Alex Azar; along with former national security adviser John Bolton and strategist Stephen Bannon. The sanctions are largely symbolic but underscore Beijing’s antipathy toward a U.S. administration it regarded as hostile.


“Over the past few years, some anti-China politicians in the United States, out of their selfish political interests and prejudice and hatred against China and showing no regard for the interests of the Chinese and American people, have planned, promoted and executed a series of crazy moves which have gravely interfered in China’s internal affairs, undermined China’s interests, offended the Chinese people, and seriously disrupted China-U.S. relations,” the foreign ministry said in a statement.

On Tuesday, Pompeo announced that he had declared China’s repression of Muslim ethnic minorities a “genocide,“ possibly opening the door to new U.S. sanctions against Chinese officials.

The Trump administration had steadily ramped up pressure on China since last year but had increasingly so over the past several months. During its last weeks in office, the administration had hit numerous officials with sanctions for their actions on Tibet, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the South China Sea.
