MEET MORINGA . . .
“The African superfood that’s healthier than kale” — 25 times the iron of spinach, 15 times the potassium of bananas, 9 times the protein of yogurt, vitamins, antioxidants, an appetite suppressor — grows like crazy, requires little water, good for the African women and others beginning to grow and harvest it . . . well, read up. I already have the tea; planning to make some salad.
And now . . .
Here’s a little more about the Donald’s possible reading habits, including the excerpt from Marie Brenner’s 1990 piece in Vanity Fair:
Last April, perhaps in a surge of Czech nationalism, Ivana Trump told her lawyer Michael Kennedy that from time to time her husband reads a book of Hitler’s collected speeches, My New Order, which he keeps in a cabinet by his bed. Kennedy now guards a copy of My New Order in a closet at his office, as if it were a grenade. Hitler’s speeches, from his earliest days up through the Phony War of 1939, reveal his extraordinary ability as a master propagandist.
“Did your cousin John give you the Hitler speeches?” I asked Trump.
Trump hesitated. “Who told you that?”
“I don’t remember,” I said.
“Actually, it was my friend Marty Davis from Paramount who gave me a copy of Mein Kampf, and he’s a Jew.” (“I did give him a book about Hitler,” Marty Davis said. “But it was My New Order, Hitler’s speeches, not Mein Kampf. I thought he would find it interesting. I am his friend, but I’m not Jewish.”)
Later, Trump returned to this subject. “If I had these speeches, and I am not saying that I do, I would never read them.”
