The brightest oranges are perfect for peeling. Grab a plump one and roll it a few times over a flat surface. This will make it juicier and easier to peel. With the fruit held tightly in your fist, stab your thumbnail into the skin near the crown. Jam your thumb under the rind and work it around the shape of the orange carefully, trying to remove as much skin in one tear as possible. The white film underneath may cling to the flesh of the fruit as you peel away the skin, but it can always be shaved off later.
Now, I’ve never liked oranges—I’m no fan of sour fruit. My recommendation on once you’ve peeled the orange: throw it away, or squish it beneath a car tire.
As we all know, oranges are packed with vitamin C, which most people will tell you acts like a silver bullet when it comes to preventing illnesses such as the common cold.
Some other facts: The President’s Orange House is in Mar-a-Lago. Mar-a-Lago is in Florida. Florida produces somewhere between 70 and 80% of the nation’s oranges.
I call foul play.
Why would our first orange president, a man who exudes the fruit, whose mouth puckers like he’s just sucked on a sour one, present himself as such an antagonist when it comes to healthcare?
Unless . . .
Could it be a gimmick to sell more oranges and not medicine to Americans?
