'Leprechaun Lap' Pub Crawl, Hopefully Minus the Leprechauns

Wonkabout

St. Patrick's Day joins Mardi Gras and New Year's Eve as one of those celebrations whose continued observance relies on arbitrary binge drinking. It isn't even St. Patrick's Day yet, nine Dupont Circle bars will be adhering to the time-honored tradition of getting you sloshed, for cheap, for leprechauns or something, on Saturday night!


Yes, those quaint Irish faeries unfairly portrayed as vicious killers in the American Cinema are the predictable theme of the "Leprechaun Lap" pub crawl. The participating bars include the Front Page, James Hoban's, Recessions, and Rumors. Starting at 1PM, a $13 cover (or $10 with two cans of food for charity) gets you entrance to all the bars, plus $2 and $3 food and drink specials until 9PM. If you're still standing after eight hours of uninterrupted drinking, the specials will soldier on at Steve's Bar Room until midnight.

Your canned goods go to Manna Food Center, to feed disadvantaged Irish faeries. Admission includes BONUS green beads and bagpipes! Register from 1PM to 6PM at Mackey's, or buy tickets in advance here.

How do you do, fellow libs? We come together tonight to cheer and clap and cry and laugh, with our leader, Elizabeth Warren, and her fellow nice people Jay Inslee (the gold standard in climate action), Beto O'Rourke (excellent on being a good ally mostly), Cory Booker (best corny love hippie but also Wall Street, it's weird), Julian Castro (I don't know, people are super into him despite his creepy twinness and his too much pomade), Amy Klobuchar (bad bitch), Bill de Blasio ( ... ), John Delaney (???), and Tim Ryan and Tulsi Gabbard.

We know, the thing we said in our headline is a thing you can say every day, but it's really intense today, maybe because Donald Trump is now filled with fear of the inescapable reality that millions of Americans who have not read the Mueller Report are going to see Robert Mueller testify on live TV on July 17, and Donald Trump will be exposed. Maybe the Big Mac vending machine next to his golden toilet is on the fritz and he hasn't had gotten to eat a Big Mac on the poop chair since last night. Maybe he's just a weak and sad person, a collection of shithole cells God meant to throw in the garbage, but accidentally implanted in Mary Trump's turkey incubator. We imagine that'd lead to a pretty constant state of anxiety and ennui.

Whatever it is, he's totally fucked right now. We were going to write a nice post about Trump's batshit interview on Fox Business with Maria Bartiromo, but we were busy, and by the time we got to it, he had performed so many batshit feats that we're just going to stick them all in this one post.

Let's start with the fight he's trying to wage with US soccer star Megan Rapinoe, who in a now-viral video stated that she has no fuckin' interest in going to the White House to meet that idiot. He got into a quarrel with her on Twitter ... or at least with a Twitter account that didn't belong to her. It's now been replaced, in order that the adult president may shit-tweet at the soccer superstar who hurt his feelings, but Splinter grabbed the original:

The rant continued:

Right. And Megan Rapinoe just said win or lose, she has no interest in meeting your crusty ass, because no decent American would consider that an honor.

Besides, she has already been to the White House to meet a legitimately elected president:

By the by, the owner of the incorrect Megan Rapinoe account saw Trump's whining and told him to grow a dick and set it on fire:

Ya burnt!

But as we said, it was a whole day of batshit from Trump, so let's continue.
