Leaks On Trump White House Reveal Serious And Seriously Funny Situations

White House Cabinet room

The New York Times reported that Trump’s half-dozen aides are literally fumbling around in the dark of the White House cabinet room, unable to find the light switches. These aides have little experience, not only with where they are but more importantly how the federal government actually works. That just might explain the chaos…

“Aides confer in the dark because they cannot figure out how to operate the light switches in the cabinet room. Visitors conclude their meetings and then wander around, testing doorknobs until finding one that leads to an exit,” reported The New York Times.

The inner-workings of the new  ̶r̶e̶g̶i̶m̶e̶  administration are coming to light, or rather not, thanks to a wealth of leaks from inside sources. The leaks have given us a revealing look inside the current White House. Serious stories have broken because of these leaks:  Drafts of executive orders, transcripts of phone calls to foreign leaders, and details about orders being prepared, such as an order to open “black site” prisons to torture terrorist suspects.

Against this backdrop of seriously scary events, the news about more mundane life is a humorous topic. Images of Trump in a bathrobe watching television and exploring his new surroundings all by himself come to mind. His wife and son remain in New York, giving him ample time to take to Twitter, and boy does he! Press Secretary Sean Spicer refuted the stories from the New York Times in a ‘press gaggle’ on Air Force One, saying, “I don’t think the president owns a bathrobe. He definitely doesn’t wear one.” Sean doesn’t seem to like the image of Trump in a bathrobe. Can’t blame him there…Of course, this is just another Spicer claim that was easily refuted by anybody familiar with Google.

People around the world are imagining what really must be going on in Trump’s new home. The Independent, a British news source, reports that Trump and Sean Spicer go through news clips. Trump marks stories he doesn’t like with a pen. Who will use the pen on the stories about Melissa McCarthy’s impression of Sean on Saturday Night Live?

We’ve also become aware that Trump was unaware of the actual power he was handing over to Steve Bannon by signing his executive order. Trump requires a briefing on documents that will be of vital consequence to our country’s future. It’s also an ongoing debate if Trump can actually read lengthy documents.

We are much more sure that Trump can read Twitter.

Two former aides to the Obama administration tweeted about the news that Trump’s people can’t operate a light switch.

More hilarity has ensued on Twitter, of course, and a few memes on Facebook to re-invigorate the Biden/Obama memes that offered so much comic relief in the days leading up to Trump’s inauguration.
