Richard Grenell, a Coachella Valley resident, will soon be named Ambassador to Germany by Donald Trump. This is good news for Grenell as it looks like he was about to put a lot of mileage on his car in order to save a couple of cents on a Pepsi.
Grenell tweeted out an #EasyButton idea in response to Cathedral City possibly adding a small tax of a couple of cents on each sugary drink purchase – which the city hopes will help lower the current 42% of children who are overweight and obese who live there:
