Stephen Colbert, Late Show with Stephen Colbert, 4/29/2019, commenting on the April 29, 2019, Washington Post headline reporting that “President trump has made more than 10,000 false or misleading claims,” on Trump's 829th day in office, for an average of 12+ per day © 2019
Losers In fact, year after year, Mr. Trump appears to have lost more money than any other individual American taxpayer, the Times found when it compared his results with detailed information the I.R.S. compiles on an annual sampling of high-income earners. His core business losses in 1990 and 1991 – more than $250 million each year – were more than double those of the nearest taxpayers in the I.R.S. information for those years. Over all, Mr. Trump lost so much money that he was able to avoid paying income taxes for eight of the 10 years. New York Times, May 8, 2019, on his IRS transcripts from 1985 to 1994 © 2019
Obstruction of justice Each of us believes that the conduct of president Trump described in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report would, in the case of any other person not covered by the Office of Legal Counsel policy against indicting a sitting president, result in multiple felony charges for obstruction of justice. Statement By Forner Federal Prosecutors, a May 6, 2019, letter signed by more than 500 Department of Justice alumni from all parties, all regions and all levels of the Department during Democratic and Republican administrations © 2019

Rural America [T]he assault on the safety net is espe- cially harmful to rural America, which relies heavily on safety-net programs. Of the 100 counties with the highest percentage of their population receiving food stamps, 85 are rural, and most of the rest are in small metropolitan areas. The expansion of Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, which Trump keeps trying to kill, had its biggest positive impact on rural areas. Paul Krugman, New York Times, May 9, 2019 © 2019

Trumpism Jenny Hopkinson, a Politico  reporter, obtained the curricula vitae of the new Trump people.

Trumpism [T]he Trump administration doesn't believe in fact-based policy. Basically, it doesn't believe in facts, period. Everything is political. Paul Krugman, New York Times, May 9, 2019 © 2019
Trumpists Of course, to stay, you must be seen as on his team, so you make further compromises. You use his language, praise his leadership, tout his commitment to values. And then you are lost. He has eaten your soul. James Comey, New York Times, May 2, 2019 © 2019
Trumpists Virtually all the people Trump had sent into the Department of Agriculture were white men in their twenties. They exhibited no knowledge of, or interest in, the problems of rural Americans. Michael Lewis, The Fifth Risk © 2019

Trumpists say Game over. Republicans' let's-just-move-on mantra following release of the Mueller report, which painted a damning portrait of the Trump campaign's willingness to benefit from Russian meddling in America's elections without having found direct evidence that it conspiried with Russians to get him elected, and which left it up to Congress to act on ten instances of possible obstruction of justice by Trump, which they intend to ignore © 2019
Trumpists say I now support reparations – Trump should have 2 yrs added to his 1st term as pay back for time stolen by this corrupt failed coup. Jerry Falwell, Jr., 6:00 PM – 4 May 2019, commenting on the Mueller investigation © 2019
Trumpists say If you believe Hillary Clinton is virtually as off-her-rocker-leftwing socialist as Senator Bernie Sanders, if you believe that Hillary Clinton is in part responsible for the rise of ISIS and what took care [sic] in Benghazi ... how the hell could you take any steps, passively or affirmatively, that would put that woman in the Oval Office! ... As bad as the Republican may be, how could you stay home and allow that? Mark Levin © 2019
Violence While natural death became more and more smothered in prudery, violent death has played an ever-growing part in the fantasies offered to mass audiences–detective stories, thrillers, Westerns, war stories, spy stories, science fiction, and eventually horror comics.
