WineDrunk SideWalk: Shipwrecked in Trumpland Week One Round UP

 Well….we’re having quite the week here. I do have to say that witnessing the decline and possible fall of the American form of democracy isn’t quite as thrilling or fun as I once imagined. It’s been terrifying in spots. Here’s a basic rundown of “president” Sherbet Baby-Dick’s first week in office:

Dismantling of the Affordable Care Act, Executive orders to Build a Wall separating Mexican from the United States, an “investigation” into all of that voter “fraud” that cost “president” Sherbet Baby-Dick the popular vote, giving the Keystone XL and Dakota pipelines a go, a hiring freeze for federal workers, putting restrictions on information, especially the EPA….and then there’s the icing on the cake that came at 4:30 PM yesterday as most Americans were heading home from work for the weekend: Trump’s executive order indefinitely suspending Syrian refugees from entering the United States, as well as as 90-120 days suspension for people coming from “terror” prone countries (i.e. Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia).

Rumor has it “president” Sherbet Baby-Dick is saving the Death Star announcement for next week.

But our fearless, moron leader didn’t do all of this alone. You can thank the craven, spineless wimps in of both the GOP house and Senate for standing by with their hands in their pants all week. Paul Ryan’s sick smile alone was worth the price of admission. Talk about a man who looks like someone served him his favorite meal albeit with a huge, steaming pile of shit right in the middle of it. Also let’s not forget Kellyanne Conway and Stephan K. Bannon. Kellyanne is earning her money for sure. She’s either buying all of Trump’s crap full throttle or she must have had a valve inserted that syphons out all of the bile and vomit whenever she speaks for Sherbet Baby-Dick. At least we have a new phrase: Alternative Facts! Boy, I love this one. Instead of being the morose, obese kids growing up, my own alternative facts tell me that I was the dashing starting QB in high school, valedictorian and class president all in one. Thanks Kellyanne! As for Stephen K. Bannon he came out of the shadows this week to declare that the media should shut up. For Senior Bannon the media are the opposition. Bannon is a man of few words and when speaking he speaks mostly in that calm yet forceful manner associated with Neo-Nazis…the ones

 Not out sniffing modeling glue most days. Rumor has it Bannon is all about anarchy….but the truth is with anarchy people can get hurt and killed. You may get your anarchy, Bannon…but I’d watch my fat ass if I were you.

 If I’ve forgotten anything forgive me. 

That said….we’re moving into week two here at WineDrunk SideWalk. Submissions are still rolling in. Today at 12pm we will have the work of writer/visual artist Jessica Fenlon and tomorrow at 12pm the poetry of Ally Malinenko….provided I didn’t fuck up the scheduling part on Blogger.

One last…to the writers/artists out there….KEEP THE SUBMISSIONS COMING!!!! Send poems, send sort stories, send rants, send photo….anything…but in the BODY of the emall.
