It’s a good thing that Barbra Streisand won’t halt her dental-hygiene routine even to defend democracy, because she’s coping with Donald Trump’s reign by indulging in sugary, teeth-eating goodness. While Babs has weighed in on Trump repeatedly, she now explains that, because of his actions, she’s weighing in at a higher number. “Donald Trump is making me gain weight. I start the day with liquids, but after the morning news, I eat pancakes smothered in maple syrup!,” she tweeted. And when Trump accused Barack Obama of tapping his phones, Streisand doubled down on the coping technique, writing, “Seriously crazy times. Time for more pancakes.” As sane a strategy as any, as long as you brush.
