Donald Trump responded to the New York judge who placed a gag order on him this morning, calling the order “illegal, un-American, unconstitutional,” according to the Associated Press.

Trump continued, saying, “Judge Juan M. Merchan was wrongfully attempting to deprive me of my First Amendment Right to speak out against the Weaponization of Law Enforcement.”

The order prevents Trump from speaking about his upcoming trial, lawyers, court staff, prosecution team or their families.

The trial, which is scheduled to begin on April 15, will be the first of his four criminal cases to go to trial.

CosMc’s expanding in North Texas, adding two locations

CosMc’s, a McDonald’s-owned restaurant concept, announced they will open two more locations in North Texas: one in Watauga and one in Arlington, according to NBCDFW.

Dallas hosted the opening of the first North Texas CosMc’s earlier this month.

Although the menu is beverage-focused, it includes limited food options such as a Spicy Queso Sandwich, Savory Hash Brown Bites and Pretzel Bites served with dipping sauces.

The chain will also include health-friendly options like blended drinks including protein powder.

Due to the rising cost of eggs, some people are rushing to find low-cost methods to celebrate Easter, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Because Easter is in March this year, eggs had to be put on the shelves earlier than usual.

February saw a 47 cent increase in the price of eggs due to the early Easter.

According to David Anderson, a Texas A&M AgriLife Extension economist, “The increase stems from the holiday’s high demand.”
