N.Y.C. 5th Avenue After Trump Impeachment Decision

Below is a satirical article written some time back. Its revival reflects deep concern for the current threat to our democracy. We appear to be devolving rather than evolving as a ‘people.’

The animus that exists threatens to destroy us. It is both individually and collectively harmful and an existential menace to our way of life!

Donald Trump is currently his party’s leading 2024 Presidential contender, while the Republican Congress panders to its political base and begins investigation of members of the January 6th commission.

Assault on women’s rights, minority voting, LBGTQIA, access to birth control and autonomy of public education are just the tip of the iceberg that is threatening everyone.

Consider this a call-out to all concerned citizens to become politically involved. If not for yourselves, then for your children and grandchildren! The consequences of doing nothing are the deterioration and very possibly the elimination of the freedoms of our society as we know them.

Mass hysteria and spontaneous corruption erupted in the wake of the no “witness no new information accepted” decision on the impeachment hearing of President Donald J. Trump.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio cordoned off the entire 6.214 miles of 5th Avenue, the major thoroughfare that “runs north from Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village to West 143rd Street in Harlem.”

As hordes of residents began a mass exodus from Manhattan, the tiny island stolen for $24 in trinkets and goods from the Lenape Indians became a scene of chaos and despair.

“Trump Derangement Syndrome,” was on full display as hordes of New Yorkers were seen drinking a suspiciously Kool-Aid like beverage and woodenly walking & wandering the streets in zombie fashion.

Noted writer MM Marvel commented on the irony likening zombies who allegedly shred and eat living flesh to Republican Senators who are openly devouring a “living document,” The United States Constitution.

Thousands of New Yorkers reported being approached by the late Joan Rivers asking them “can we talk?”

Within minutes of the Senate’s vote not to hear any witnesses, Rudy Guiliani Trump’s personal lawyer “butt dialed” the metro desk editor of the NY Times and left a voice-mail of a live conversation with President Trump. The transcript is as follows:

“Congratulations Mr. President. We did it.”

“Yes the fake impeachment is over. I’ve been exonerated. Even Lazy Lame-duck Lamar voted in my favor and he believes I’m guilty. I told you I could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and wouldn’t lose a voter.”

“You were right Mr. President, just like you said, “it’s, like, incredible.”
