Lend me your ears. You'll be glad. Today's subject is the controversial production of "Julius Caesar" in which a Donald Trump-like figure gets assassinated. Given today's angry political climate, the costuming showed poor taste at the very least. Delta Air Lines and Bank of America withdrew their sponsorship, and who could blame them?

President Trump didn't exactly boot Steve Bannon from his ruling circle of relatives and Wall Street hotshots he might like to have as relatives.
