Old Political Meme: Trump Is an Authoritarian
New and Improved Politico Meme: Trump Is Not Authoritarian Enough! He's a Weakman, Not a Strongman!

This is real.

I mean, they really said this. I haven't juiced it.

This guy's so excited, I bet you he just lapped up a nice musky creampie!!!!

Trump Is an Authoritarian Weakman

Coronavirus would be the perfect opportunity for an autocrat. Trump isn't taking it.

By JOHN F. HARRIS

...

The first pillar [of Trump's governing style] is that Trump, in the near-unanimous view of the opposition, is a terrible person whose terribleness finds expression in terrible policies.

...

It is the second pillar of the anti-Trump case that has wobbled curiously in recent weeks. This president allegedly is not just a near-term menace but a long-term on--a leader bent on amassing personal power and undermining constitutional democracy in ways that would last beyond his presidency (which, under the worst scenarios, he might even try, Vladimir Putin-style, to extend illegally if he loses in November.)

The notion of Trump as authoritarian strongman, however, has been cast in an odd light in this pandemic. Would-be tyrants use crisis to consolidate power. Trump, by contrast, has been pilloried from many quarters, including many liberals, for not asserting authority and responsibility more forcefully to combat Covid-19. Rather than seizing on a genuine emergency, Trump was slow to issue an emergency declaration, moved gingerly in employing the Defense Production Act to help overburdened local health systems, and even now seems eager to emphasize that many subjects--closure of schools and businesses, obtaining sufficient ventilators--are primarily problems for state governors to deal with.

...

Perhaps the way to think of Trump is as an authoritarian weakman.

Note that the possibility that Trump is not an authoritarian of any stripe was not even considered. They found that the evidence "shook" their previous claims, and so just fashioned a new one. No, he's not an authoritarian strongman; he's too weak for that.

So he's not an authoritarian, then?

No, that can't be it: That would mean the media is wrong, and any suggestion that the media is wrong is Heresy.

So the new hotness is that Trump is an "authoritarian weakman."

This is a eight year old boy shitting his pants and thinking he's awfully clever for doing so.

As always, I use Reagan as my starting point due to the level of 29 I am, not because Saint Reagan.

Every Presidential election I can remember since Reagan's reelection, some group is saying the President is going to cancel elections and stay in office. Every single one. Republican or Democrat, some group would read the chemtrails to say the election was going to be cancelled. So, yeah, you'll forgive me if I roll my eyes that Trump is going to do that.

99 "undermining constitutional democracy"

That horse has left the barn.

Posted by: freaked at March 26, 2020 05:01 PM (Tnijr)

100 These people are (effectively, or generally) stupid. As are there readers. As are half or more of your neighbors, colleagues, friends, and family. And misinformed. And disinclined to critical thinking.

Boring, but the Universal Explanation for 99% of what ace ably documents and eviscerates here daily.

Trump has, if anything, acquiesced in a possibly serious weakening of core executive power, and definitely acquiesced in a substantial additional erosion of the constitutional balance, by deferring to lawless courts.

A Real Problem, not a Make-Believe Problem.

101 98 I mean, this is, literally and unambiguously, the exact process of doublethink described by Orwell. The simultaneous holding of two diametrically opposed points of view. Genuine inherent contradiction, here the weak strongman. Next, he'll write an article describing how Trump's the world's tallest midget. Unfortunately, this douchenozzle probably never read or understood it.

Trump has also forced the Congress to own it's responsibilities.

They refuse to actually legislate new laws, then get upset when he uses existing laws and file lawsuits to create judicial decrees in lieu of actual legislation.

I'd say Trump has done rather well - far better than anyone could have hoped.

It would be nice if the GOP would stop stabbing him in the back for a few days at a stretch, though.

This weak strongman thing explains why he never just told Punchy
MauiMaui the Hawaiin judge to go stuff a pineapple up his keister when
one of his regulations was blocked.
And why he worked through the courts, because that's the very definition of a weak strongman.

His aggressive judicial appointment strategy is arguably more effective. Congress could legislate away national injunctions but they won't, because they like them.

If he ignores them, they'll impeach him, this time for real.

But appointing judges attacks the core of the problem by eliminating activist judges and getting an Article III ruling that no, district judges do not have national jurisdiction.

Important - and time-sensitivie - executive decisions based on unambiguous constitutional or statutory authority, with real-world consequences, are now playthings for *district courts* issuing national injunctions.

231 He won't be impeached over any action to restore constitutional balance, and especially over repudiating unlawful injunctions. Not a chance.

And personnel changes are not a solution, just the obvious thing you'd do anyway.

Explicitly switching to rule of men, and not of law, as an official policy and strategy, is sort of the definition of expedient with great dangers.

And the process outrage of these injunctions is actually just a detail - and an example of internal collapse of integrity in Roberts' crumbling system - and not an outright usurpation of executive authority.

The unemployment numbers are jacked because laid-off autoworkers are being included, even though they are idled two weeks every year and claim unemployment.

The Trump administration unsealed sweeping indictments against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and members of his inner circle on narco-terrorism charges on Thursday, a move that dramatically escalates the U.S. bid to force the authoritarian socialist from power. The indictment, which officials said was a decade in the making, comes as supporters of the U.S.-backed Venezuelan opposition movement to oust Maduro is fading, particularly as the outbreak of the coronavirus has effectively halted calls for citizens to turnout in the streets.

357 Enforced shutdown and isolation is just plain nuts. In NYC, for example, quarantines in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan could be decided neighborhood by neighborhood. Combine that with close examination of airport arrivals and the rest of us could go about our lives largely untouched.


That's how Japan did it and they are the most successful nation in the world at closing down this virus. That's also how Taiwan has been so remarkably successful. This shutdown is driving businesses under, and creating huge and completely unnecessary unemployment. The panic is ridiculous.

***Based upon gross estimates of annual infected. Of the actually tested positive for the flu the mortality rate is 10%.

For each actual positive test, they "estimate" 100 have NOT been tested. Now do that same neat trick with Kung Flu and see what the mortality rate is.

It is just the latest non-falsifiable accusation to be leveled at Trump. Except this time it's actually pretty falsifiable because he intstituted the travel ban.

But what can't be proven is that Trump did "enough".

Nothing like that is has even happened to this industry before. The damage may be permanent if this shutdown doesn't end.

New jobless claims are 3.3 million. That is a 30 sigma event, the stats wonks say. That is five times the peak weekly maximum during the Crash of '08.

At the same time, the Dow seems to be turning, thanks to the Fed turning the printing presses to ludicrous speed.

That cockholster was a has-been even when he was popular.

Funny thing is that the one role I really remember him in is in a shitty TV show called Boston Public. In one episode, he's an inner city teacher talking about the power of words, and uses THAT word as an example (yeah, that one). The black kids in class freak out that their pasty white teacher even said the word in class, even to teach them about how awful the word is. Of course, he gets in big trouble with the school admin for even mentioning the word.
