Good Friday Morning to you! David Waldman illuminates the issues that will keep you thinking all weekend. For instance, did you know that there is an alternative to leaving the teabag at the bottom of the mug for a few days, then prying it out with a butterknife? There are several alternatives! There are also several alternatives to “tea”, although some might require a more marketable name to increase sales.

“Roseanne” on the other hand, remains a great brand name, and is now a Trump icon, representing the common wisdom of patriotic Americans, at least that’s the only plausible explanation for the success of Roseanne Barr’s new hit episode show. Laura Ingraham’s brand isn’t selling as well, even after the Holy Week discounts were added. The American Independent Party’s name is a lie, but still effective branding after 50 years. And we are still talking about Milo Yiannopoulos, a fake person with a fake charity, that knows how to rake in real money.

Donald Trump ruins the economy for his short-term gain. Trump ruins our democracy for his short-term gain.  Trump always makes all decisions for his short-term gain.  So, will Donald fire Scott Pruitt because Scott lived in a condo supplied to him by energy lobbyists, which reveals that his administration’s culture of corruption is extra swampy? No, but if this scandal pulls another day of press attention off of “Trump”, Pruitt’s a goner.
