A president, a porn star. Nothing surprises us here in the alternative universe we live in where Trump was elected president. Also, in this alternative universe, our president is as obsessed with watching television as he is with tweeting and boinking porn stars. For tonight’s entertainment beverage, we give you a porn star worthy drink to keep you and your smile company as you watch 60 Minutes and the dark and stormy twitter blizzard simultaneously.
- 1 ½ oz coffee liqueur
- 1 oz silver tequila
- ½ oz orange liqueur
- Splash of orange juice
- Dash or orange bitters
Pour the coffee liqueur into the bottom of a glass with some ice. In a shaker, mix the other ingredients with ice. Strain the ingredients out of the shaker over a spoon to layer on top of coffee liqueur. Clothing optional.
Our President, as we all know, is a quiet man not given to idle talk or self-promotion. His idea of Paradise is working his land by day and reading the classics by night. As a Christian, he takes seriously the Lord’s admonition about turning the other cheek and loving his neighbor as he loves himself.
But, do not mistake his retiring, good-natured demeanor with a lack of passion or grit. Still waters run deep. And his dark fury when roused to anger is legendary. Rivers run red with the blood of his enemies, the landscape piled high with the skulls of men he has killed with his bare hands. Or, would have except for the bone spurs. Vietnam would have gone much differently had we had the quiet, efficiently deadly Private Trump stalking the jungles. The Viet Cong would have learned to fear the night. Stupid osteophytes.
So, when we mourn the dead of Parkland, we mourn also the cruel fate that sent President Trump elsewhere that day. Had he been on campus (and not suffered from a debilitating heel condition), Donald J. Trump would surely have charged into Building 12 of Stoneman Douglas High School – his bare hands more than a match for the killer’s AR-15. Or, maybe like John McClain made real, he would have caught the shooter unaware. “Yippee Ki-Yay Motherfucker!” coming from the President’s little-used mouth would be the last sound he heard before feeling Trump’s powerful (albeit tiny) hands around (part of) his throat.
Alas, destiny wasn’t to be as our president was surely somewhere doing important work and definitely not playing golf.

Directions: Pour ingredients into snifter and stir and raise a glass to the teenage heroes who are coming for Republican blood. (Be afraid, Marco. Be very afraid.)
The National Association of American Distilleries has released a new study that shows conclusively that the solution to alcoholism is to drink more alcohol. Therefore they are calling for new legislation that would address this public health crisis.
NAAD spokesman, “‘Alcoholism’ is just a myth made up the Anti-Saloon League. And besides, what about people who drive better after a few beers? Alcohol regulations dishonor the Founding Fathers who were very pro-alcohol. First President George Washington operated a distillery. Would you call him an alcoholic? I think you see my point here.”
Changes the NAAD is demanding include:
- lowering the legal drinking age to 18
- allowing alcohol sales at alcohol shows with no ID required
- allowing all-age sales of alcohol at alcohol shows
- changing the BAC for drunk driving to 4.0
- requiring teachers to drink alcohol in the classroom
- making Cocktails for Survival, volume 1 & volume 2, required text for any alcohol treatment program
These are simply the first steps in solving the alcoholism problem in the US. Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fl) is slated to sponsor this new legislation. (As soon as the check clears.) NAAD feels certain that as a result of these new laws, drunk driving accidents will decrease, job productivity will increase, and clearly, everyone will be happier.
President Trump has issued a statement that he agrees with this new legislation because of all the new jobs it will create.
