WineDrunk SideWalk: Shipwrecked in Trumpland week three round up.

WEEK THREE!!!!!.......although it feels like year three with so-called “president” Sherbet Baby-Dick in the White House….doesn’t it.

I’m a fan of history so we’re not going to start this off by getting right into week three of the Fall of America…let’s talk about something that happened during week two that I forgot to touch upon.

For those of you unfamiliar with so-called “president’ sherbet baby-dick’s and every pseudo-white male liberal’s favorite boytoy….the good people at Bitch Media have provided a fan list of Milo’s transgressions right HERE. enjoy!

But for those of you who already know all about Milo, a speech by him, in the Martin Luther King Jr. student union of all places, was canceled on Wednesday February 1st, at Berkeley, due to violent protesters. That’s the nuts and bolts of it. I’ve been checking online and in print to see if these violent protesters were connected to the non-violent protest against Milo taking place on campus that night by students, but I’ve come up with nothing but junk from fake news sites like Breitbart and the Daily Caller. What I have seen/read are a lot of people on the right and the so-called left claiming that Milo’s freedom of speech rights had been violated by the protesters. It’s funny…I don’t recall the PROTESTERS, violent or otherwise, as being the ones who cancelled Milo’s little speech. If I’m correct it was the University that made that decision. So who is violating whose freedom of speech here? You want to speak, speak, you craven wimp…only be tough enough to reap what you’ve sown. Even so-called “president” sherbet baby-dick weighed in on it by threatening to remove federal funding from Berkeley…..that’s some classy company you got there you freedom of speech warriors! congrats!

I find it funny, frightening, telling, what-have-you, that nearly all of Milo’s defenders are white men, or someone who is speaking on behalf of white men. It’s a common symptom of the right wing and a large segment of the so-called liberal left to defend and ONLY defend the free speech of white males. Real people on the left are now being accused of trying to ban this free speech which, let’s be honest, is just hate speech. But the thing here is that protesting speech like Milo’s is also a form of FREEDOM OF SPEECH, assholes. Milo, you want to come to my university, my city, my state,  and talk your hateful, racist, misogynistic, bullshit…again, you better be prepared for voices on the other side.  So do me a favor you leftists in wolves’ clothing… tell yourselves and your right wing brethren to blame the cowardly institutions for cancelling speeches like Milo’s….not the people out there using their voices in a manner you claim to want to protect…..also…where were all you white male liberal fuckers when Madonna was getting shit for saying she wanted to burn the White House down? Powdering your noses, right?


Super Bowl 51 (fuck Roman numerals) happened…and apparently this one was a doozy. I wouldn’t know because I don’t have cable and I was drowning my sorrows in vodka because I couldn’t get a ticket for ANY of the showings of the James Baldwin documentary I Am Not Your Negro at the Film Forum, and streaming Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norell on Netflix. But from what I heard the New England Patriots (so-called “president” sherbet baby-dick’s favorite team) came back from a 25 point deficit to beat the Falcons of Atlanta. It was also the first Super Bowl to go into over-time. Noted Trump supporters, Tom “deflategate” Brady and Bill “spygate” Belichick became the first coach/quarterback combo to win 5 Super Bowls as well….Christ, it’s amazing what you can find on Wikipedia!

Let me be the first to congratulate Mr. Brady and Mr. Belichick on this amazing feat….you know it’s not often that you see white men succeed in America. Thanks for keeping the struggle real you two!

But what you DO see a lot of white men doing, or men in general, is commenting on the appearance of a woman. Lady GaGa, my only real reason for even bothering to want to tune into the Super Bowl, performed the half-time show. And while I’m sure she was as stellar as always, albeit a little too non-controversial from what I read, apparently a lot of men (and some women out there…..53% of white women DID vote for a rapist you know) took issue with Gaga’s physique, specifically her belly sticking a touch over the waistline, in which the 1 ounce of fat that she has, reared its ugly head. 

Comments such as “sickened” and “disgusting” came from several nacho, chicken wing, fast food, soda/beer. drinking freedom-loving Americans who can sit on their asses for three hours watching a game, but most likely couldn’t run down their block without having chest pains.

I was going to post one of the offending pictures of Gaga…but having grown up a shamed fat kid to the age of 17…I’m not doing that instead here are some statistics:

one in five women will be raped in their lifetime. One in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually assaulted before the age of 18. 63% of sexual assaults are NOT reported to the police, and only 12% of them against children ARE.

You want to be sick and disgusted by something…be sick and disgusted by that.

Gaga, class act that she is, responded with this:

I heard my body is a topic of conversation so I wanted to say, I'm proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too. No matter who you are or what you do. I could give you a million reasons why you don't need to cater to anyone or anything to succeed. Be you, and be relentlessly you. That's the stuff of champions. thank you so much everyone for supporting me. I love you guys. Xoxo, gaga

One last about Super Bowl 51:  at least three members of the Patriots said they would not be attending the white house ceremony expected to be hosted by sherbet baby-dick this summer….kind of like Tom Brady did a few years back when Obama invited the team to the WH. Apparently he was getting his Make America Great Again hat washed that day.

okay, okay…enough.  This has gone on too long.

let’s get back to so-called “president” sherbet baby-dick….according to several sources trump’s approval rating is hovering at around 47%, which is quite unusual for a brand new president…usually it takes a few years for a president to fall that low. now that’s historic! No…no…it’s YUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEEE!
Of course…what IS frightening is that 47% of Americans have the same mental disabilities as the current president, and would most likely follow him down a flaming rabbit hole.

….but you know what IS historic? This week Vice-President Mike “closet case” Pence had to travel all the way from the white house to the capitol building to break a 50-50 tie on the confirmation of GOP-donor and WORST CABINET NOMINEE EVER Betsy DeVos as Education Secretary.  To learn more about what the Secretary of Education does and how much Ms. DeVos can fuck things up, I have provided a link right HERE.

Jeff Sessions was also approved as Attorney General in a 52-47 vote that was contentious and cantankerous and a bunch of other long sounding C words. What had to be the highlight of the whole darn thing was Majority Leader, Mitch “The Kentucky Neck” McConnell invoking Rule NO. 19 (Senators cannot directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to others Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator) to silence Senator Elizabeth Warren from holding court on the floor midway through the reading of a letter by the late, great Coretta Scott King from 1985 basically letting everyone know that Jeff Sessions is a douche for using “the awesome power of his office to chill the pre-exercise of the vote by Black citizens.” 

Mrs.Scott King might've been a touch pissed about all of THIS.

You can learn all about all of the wonderfully deplorable things that our new Attorney General can do to citizens now that all of the soulless members of the GOP (everyone’s favorite DOMESTIC TERRORIST ORGANIZATION), and one spineless senator from West Virginny allowed him to do right FUCKING HERE.

Want some more facts: according to The Guardian, 258 Black people were killed 
by the police in 2016. 39 were unarmed. 4 were killed by stun guns. 9 died in custody.
The Washington Post has the number at 232....regardless the number White Supremacy 
and Institutionalized Racism are still running strong for over 400 years.

Adding DeVos and Sessions to sherbet baby-dick’s rogues gallery and this cabinet is being to look more like the Legion of Doom rather than function department heads. 2017 continues to be fun-filled and action-packed.

What else?

ah….so-called “president” sherbet baby-dick’s little Muslim Ban had its day in court on Tuesday and as of this writing a 3-judge federal appeals panel rejected it on Thursday while I was binge watching the UK version of The Office. So Supreme Court here we come… but before this wonderful news sherbet baby-dick took time from tweeting shit at Nordstrom about his asshole daughter’s clothing line and calling the media a bunch of liars, to let it be known that he finds any challenge to his Muslim Band to be disgraceful…kind of like what millions of us find his Muslim Ban to be. Hell, even Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch came out to call sherbet baby-dick’s comments on the judiciary to be “demoralizing” and “disheartening” much in the way that millions of us felt when sherbet baby-dick picked a man who hates women’s rights and once used the phrase “fascism forever” to be “demoralizing” and “disheartening” in a pick for the Supreme Court....of course in our ever-changing news cycle Gorsuch has already backtracked on this.

Blah Blah Blah…Kellyanne Conway….the very name writes its own satirical comments so….

To be honest….mocking Trump and the sinister racists that he surrounds himself with (you thought I forgot you Steve Bannon) is quasi-comical ONLY because he’s so unpopular. The very idea that Trump could be pulling this shit with the will of the people behind him kind of makes me ill and want to vomit. At times I worry we’re one terrorist attack away from the tides turning and everything fading into black.

So…regardless of so-called “president” baby-dick’s fuck-ups, or his idiot cabinet picks, or that funny SNL skit that below the satire is working against itself and kind of normalizing these morons, the tweets, etc…..STAY VIGILANT.


….tell yourself that every day.

Stick around becuase we have the poetic stylings of Scott Silsbe today at 12pm
and tomorrow the masterful haiku of Don Wentworth at 12pm as well.
