When we heard that Trump had given Omarosa Manigault, famous first-season Apprentice contestant, a position called “official public engagement czar,” we knew we needed to write a drink in her honor. When she said that “every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President Trump,” we knew that it needed to be a double.
Fun facts: Omarosa was engaged to Michael Clarke Duncan, prior to his death. She is an ordained minister and assistant pastor, as well as a political consultant and a Ph.D in Communications. Omarosa gives off many mixed signals, having worked for Al Gore during the Clinton era, prior to becoming one of Trump’s most trusted henchpeople. Like Jagermeister, and all those who drink it, Omarosa is not here to make friends.
The Omarosa (the drink)
Pour a double shot of Jagermeister liquorice flavored liqueur into a large shot glass and drink up. If she gets fired before the four years is up, make a batch of The You’re Fired (page 30 of Cocktails for Survival).
There will be a lot more circumstance and a lot less pomp with the 2017 election, because no A-list celebrities are willing to play. I assume Ted Nugent and Kid Rock are in the line up, but I haven’t heard if
Chachi Scott Baio will be there yet. Is Billy Bush available? I hear he could use a job. Maybe he could sing the National Anthem.
The so-called "A" list celebrities are all wanting tixs to the inauguration, but look what they did for Hillary, NOTHING. I want the PEOPLE!

If you ask Trump though, it’s not that every celebrity is declining to participate! He didn’t want them anyway. Obviously a man of such tremendous reality TV prowess wouldn’t need celebrities to make his inauguration great.
Trump is going to make inaugurations great again all on his own. Qualified performers need not apply.
I mean, sure, we all enjoy the vocal stylings of Beyoncé but in a pinch, I think Ivanka could pull it off with panache.
Great move on delay (by V. Putin) – I always knew he was very smart!

You’d think we’d all have realized by now that Trump and Putin’s relationship is more than platonic. Apparently, their love knows no bounds, least of all Twitter boundaries.
Since this love affair shows no signs of stopping, I thought we could use a drink to help us all cope. So enjoy our drink called The Putin’s Puppet. Pairs well with The 400-lb Hacker and The Russian Cyberattack. Serve with borscht and what’s left of your freedom.
