Maybe you read about the folks at Tufts who want to remove President Trump’s foul-mouthed former communications director Anthony Scaramucci from the advisory board for the institution’s Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. Well, one alum who’s still in good standing at the school is longtime TV journalist/talk-show host Meredith Vieira. The 1975 graduate joined Tufts President Anthony Monaco at the Museum of Fine Arts for an entertaining Q&A session kicking off the school’s “Brighter World” fund-raising campaign. . . . A day or so later, Vieira was also at a fund-raiser, held at the Calderwood Pavilion, for Hebrew SeniorLife, which serves seniors throughout Greater Boston. She was joined by celebrated octogenarian Rita Moreno — yes, she’s 85 — as well as WBZ-TV’s Dr. Mallika Marshall.
