Donald Trump’s obsession against environmentally sensitive, water-efficient appliances and fixtures — like toilets — is suddenly making a whole lotta sense to Twitter followers.
New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman’s revelation in her upcoming book “Confidence Man” that Trump’s White House toilets were often clogged with what appeared to be ripped up documents could explain a lot of things — like Trump’s confounding complaints about serious flushing difficulties.
Americans, he groused in a 2019 meeting to business leaders, are flushing their toilets “10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once.”
Absolutely. If they’re trying to flush ... documents. And that could reduce water pressure in, say, showers and sinks.
“We have a situation where we’re looking very strongly at sinks and showers and other elements of the bathrooms,” Trump declared during his presidency.
A light has switched on in the Twitter community.
No wonder Trump had a problem with water pressure in the shower with all that flushing going on.

REMEMBER THIS?TRUMP; “People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times as opposed to once,” he told reporters from the Roosevelt Room in 2019, claiming the EPA was looking into the alleged problem. NOW WE KNOW WHY - PAPERS!

Who remembers Trump going on and on and on and on about toilets not flushing…maybe if he wasn’t trying to flush National Archives documents down the bowl the toilet would have flush without a problem.#FreshVoicesRisepic.twitter.com/s7YfZ6TXP3

Trump the dumbest. He runs out complaining the toilet won’t flush and shit and we was like, “Wtf is he even talking about?”, then his crimes comes out then it all makes sense to wtf he was talking about. Maybe if you only flushed toilet paper you would’ve had a problem flushing
