    “On MLK Day, President Trump visits Trump golf course” (Washington Post) https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2018/01/15/on-mlk-day-president-trump-visits-trump-golf-course/?utm_term=.32a90c011b7d “The morning after declaring “I’m not a racist,” Trump began his Monday the same way he has begun each day of the three-day holiday weekend: with tweets sent before leaving his private Mar-a-Lago estate and then a short motorcade to the golf club.”

    “Dodge Super Bowl commercial draws backlash for using Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. sermon” http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/tv/ct-dodge-mlk-super-bowl-commercial-20180204-story.html “…What the Super Bowl ad doesn’t include is the part from King’s sermon where he warns against the dangers of spending too much when buying a car and not trying to keep up with the Joneses. “Do you ever see people buy cars that they can’t even begin to buy in terms of their income? You’ve seen people riding around in Cadillacs and Chryslers who don’t earn enough to have a good T-Model Ford,” King said in his sermon. “But it feeds a repressed ego. You know, economists tell us that your automobile should not cost more than half of your annual income. So if you make an income of $5,000, your car shouldn’t cost more than about $2,500. That’s just good economics.”
