File this under ‘Things that make you go hmm…’

From PEOPLE:

In the most unlikely collaboration since Ed Sheeran and Andrea Bocelli, Peeps has partnered with Pepsi to create Marshmallow Cola, which comes in a three-pack of cute little 7.5-oz. cans.

Sadly, these won’t be available on grocery store shelves this year, but fans can enter the sweepstakes to win some by hashtagging “#HangingWithMyPEEPS” on their social media photos.

The cans come in blue, pink, and yellow, although there is no difference in flavor.

The peeps at PEOPLE got a first taste of the drink and do, indeed, confirm that it does taste like marshmallows. The powers that be describe the soda as “vaguely reminiscent of Lucky Charms.”

Please Tell Coronavirus Trump Wants Economy ‘Reopened’ By Easter

Donald Trump has announced he wants the U.S. economy “reopened” by the Easter holiday on April 12.

That’s much sooner than medical experts have previously indicated would be prudent.

From the New York Times:

Even as nations from Britain to India declare nationwide economic lockdowns, President Trump said he “would love to have the country opened up, and just raring to go, by Easter,” less than three weeks away, a goal that top health professionals have called far too quick.

“I think it’s possible, why not?” he said with a shrug.

Participating in a town hall hosted by Fox News on Tuesday, he expressed outrage about having to “close the country” to curb the spread of the coronavirus and indicated that his guidelines on business shutdowns and social distancing would soon be lifted.

“I gave it two weeks,” he said, adding, “We can socially distance ourselves and go to work.”

Trump later amended his remarks saying, “This is a medical crisis, not a financial crisis,” and added his decisions will be based on health considerations and hard facts.

Even The Easter Bunny Knows

From CNN – President Donald J. Trump touts the economy and the military at the annual White House Easter egg roll.

Just so inappropriate.

And then there’s, “This incredible house, or building or whatever you want to call it….”

We call it The White House.

The look on the Easter Bunny’s face is priceless. Watch below.

Donald Trump Celebrates Easter With Immigration Rant

Donald Trump

Donald Trump celebrated Easter by taking to Twitter and ranting about immigration saying “Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. “Caravans” coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!”

Did you catch that last part – “NO MORE DACA DEAL!”

Just last week Trump was telling Dreamers it was the Democrats who weren’t trying to solve the DACA issue. Now he’s saying, “NO MORE DACA DEAL!”

He also berated Mexico for “doing very little, at stopping folks at the border.

Interestingly, Trump doesn’t seem to understand exactly what DACA is.

He added that “These big flows of people are all trying to take advantage of DACA. They want in on the act!”

The DACA program (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) is only for recipients who have entered the United States before their 16th birthday and prior to June 2007.

There’s no getting “in on the act.” Either you were in the U.S. before 2007 or you’re not eligible.

Happy Easter!
