Recent news show the 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump, is a McDonald’s fan.
In fact, he actually did a commercial for McD, in 2002, with Grimace.
His endorsement commercials do not end there.
Pizza Hut – in 1995, with his 1st wife, Ivana.
Of course, he is not above promoting his own brands.
Trump Collection – dress just like Trump

Is appointing Linda McMahon as administrator of the Small Business Administration, a payback for beating up and shaving Vince McMahon?

For those Seinfeld sitcom fans, “The Muffin Tops” was one of the more memorable episodes. It asked the questions on all of our minds, whenever we had muffins. “Can I have just the top?” “Why do they have to make the bottom also?” Muffin top is the crunchy, flavorful, essence of a muffin. The bottom stump is that dry…. Does anyone even remember what the bottom tastes like? Is the stump really necessary?
McDonald’s apparently did not think so. It came out with the Muffin Toppers. Has McDonald’s hit another jackpot, like the all-day breakfast?
I haven’t seen the muffin toppers in our local stores. There are reviews online. Apparently, it’s not really a muffin top “popped” from a whole muffin. They are really muffins with a very shallow stump. It’s more like a miniature muffin.
You don’t really get that crunchy top, baked to perfection. Worse, you just get a miniature muffin that tastes like it’s all stump.
McDonald’s apparently did not follow Seinfeld’s (Elaine’s) advice. You need to bake the whole muffin, then “pop” the top, chuck the stump away.

Donald Trump is the 45th President of the United States. One of Donald Trump’s most recognizable feature is his hair. Now, we know how he style his hair – fashioned from the animal kingdom.
Chinese golden pheasant (Chrysolophus pictus) native western China
Cotton-top Tamarin (Saguinus Oedipus) found mainly in Colombia, South America
Horse (Equus caballus)
The Peruvian flannel moth caterpillar (Megalopyge opercularis)
They even named a new discovered moth (Neopalpa donaldtrumpi), after him.
By most accounts, Donald Trump’s hair is real, not a rug piece. He does take a small dose of the drug finasteride, marketed as Propecia. It’s a prostate drug, but also used to treat male pattern baldness.

San Diego used to have 3 professional sports teams: Basketball Clippers, Football Chargers, Baseball Padres. In 2017, the sad state of San Diego professional sports team took another hit. It is down to just one. Only the Major League Baseball team Padres still call San Diego home. San Diego lost both the Clippers and the Chargers to Los Angeles. All we need is for the Padres to also move north for a trifecta. Hey, LA, interested in a 3rd baseball team?
In 1984, San Diego Clippers moved to Los Angeles, a city owned by its perennial winner, the Lakers, they of 16 NBA championships. How many championship have the Clippers won, before or after 1984? Zero.
In 2017, San Diego Chargers decided to move to Los Angeles, after San Diego residents resoundingly defeated a referendum to pay for a stadium for the Chargers. It will share a football venue with another NFL team, the LA Rams. LA greeted the news like another Kardashian story – yawn, enough already!
Obviously, there were financial reasons for all these moves. But, fans don’t care about that. Fans want winners.
Poor LA. For 20 years, you proved you don’t need a professional football team. Now, two teams are thrusted upon you. Two winners? For the regular season just ended, from Dec. 1 on, the two NFL franchises now call Los Angeles home, the Rams and the Chargers, were a combined 0-10. Yikes! Good luck, Los Angeles.
