The ‘Coke Button’
Right there, just within reach on the Resolute Desk, is an elegant button. It is not specifically a “Coke” button, rather it is used to summon a White House butler who can attend to the President’s needs. And Mr. Trump likes a refreshing soda, now and again. The button is not unique to him, as the last several presidents have had the button available: I found it sitting on Clinton’s desk in some old pictures, as well. And presidents before that had big clunky phones with lots of buttons; I doubt the butler phenomenon is new to the White House.
I want a Coke Button!
An orange gator was sighted in South Carolina this week, and some people have dubbed it ‘Trump A-Gator‘. Those people are wrong… the gator is clearly a just a fan of the National Champion Clemson Tigers, who won the college football playoff this year. It’s obvious!
Nobody knows why the gator is orange, but it’s probably not natural. An orange gator was spotted in Florida a few years ago… perhaps its a rare color morph. More likely it was colored by something in the environment, such as iron oxide in the water or some orange paint (perhaps a few rambunctious college students got carried away.)
