Didn’t we have fun last week?! We had our regularly scheduled Happy Hour and then as promised, we also held an impromptu Happy Hour as ex-fed Martin Sheil joined us to walk us through the J6 indictment that dropped Tuesday. Marty promised that we’ll do another breaker when news from Georgia breaks. As you know, the barricades are already in place.
As you also know, Trump called for violence in New York, and other than actor Michael Rappaport making violent piggy noises when Trump and Greene showed up, Trump’s power is dwindling, as even the most devoted chump might think twice before joining the 1,000 people who already went to prison for him.
Get ready for Trump to perform more ‘Roy Cohn victimhood blame-the-prosecutor’s-fake-vendetta’ schticks whenever he can secure a camera. For an example, see how Cohn — Trump’s disbarred mentor — performs when indicted:
Looking forward to seeing many of you in the squares tomorrow for our weekly wellness checkin, and just a reminder, each week we alternate the time so as many people from around the world can checkin. Tomorrow, our time is 5 pm PT, which is 8 pm New York time.
Although the Happy Hour was inspired as a wellness check, where we each offer suggestions of how we stay well during trouble times, it’s okay that we also chat about breakers and fears. That’s part of how of we do this as a community — empathy, listening, sharing.
