Drinking Liberally Meetup Reminder,Friday February 3

Hello everyone!

Now that Sundance is behind us and there appears to be a couple of days break between organized protests, please join us in the back room at Piper Down (1492 South State Street) from 6:00-9:00 PM tomorrow, Friday February 3rd. We sure have a lot to talk about!

WEEK IN TRUMP

In what may have to become a regular feature of our email, I will try to hit the highlights of the past week’s shenanigans at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

We began with the executive order blocking immigration, including refugees, from seven Muslim countries. But it isn’t a Muslim ban (Yes it is!). Subsequently, there were protests at airports around the world.

Trump managed to find a SCOTUS nominee to the right of Scalia and he revealed his choice with a surreal live prime time reality TV gimmick.

On the National Security Council, Trump demoted the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Director of National Intelligence while he promoted Steve Bannon, (yes, the Breitbart guy) or as I refer to him, his Minister of Propaganda.

A Navy SEAL and many Yemeni civilians died in what appears to be a botched raid.

And on Wednesday alone, Trump picked a fight with Iran. threatened Mexico, and insulted Australia!

On a lighter note, Arnold Swarzenegger trolls Trump pretty hard in response to Trump’s insulting comment.

There is so much more but I don’t have all night to write this!

For more local oriented news I recommend you check in with Utah Political Capitol, run by a few long-time DL members who are keeping track of everything happening during the ongoing legislative session.

Join me, Jason, tomorrow for a couple of drinks and conversation where we can try our best to unpack and work through all of the past week’s craziness!

Drinking Liberally SLC meets from
6:30-9:30 every every Friday in the back room of the Piper Down (1492
