For years Donald Trump bathroom fixation captured the disenfranchised masses, suffering for a long time from the moderate pressure of the shower water, whose landfills deserve to travel down a powerful vortex by the power of Niagara Falls, but, confusing, only float in a bowl. Where the silent majority was too meek to stand up for itself, the former leader of this nation was brave enough to tell the truth.
The president’s commitment to the issue inspired an unforgettable oratory in 2019, delivered in front of reporters, I hope to take his place as his address in Gettysburg:
The water is dripping and dripping, just dripping, dripping very quietly. People flush toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once. They end up consuming more water. So [the Environmental Protection Agency] looking at it very strongly at my suggestion. You enter a new building, a new house or a new home, and they have standards where you don’t get water, you can’t wash your hands, there’s practically so little water coming out of the tap. The end result is to leave the faucet on and you need a lot more time to wash your hands and end up consuming the same amount of water.
Yes, 15 blushes, so much time wasted helplessly staring at our own shit as we prayed that our Lord and Savior would make it go through the hole. Trump added more from the South Lawn in 2020 a personal touch of his message,, mentioning that this is a hair crisis.
“You just stand there longer or take a longer shower?” he asked. “Because my hair – I don’t know about you – but it has to be perfect.”
Washington Post reporter video editor JM Rieger put together his clips various public views on water flow in the bathroom from 2019-2020.
You will remember, of course, that Trump advocated this issue in the middle pandemic and hurricane-related electricity crisis, urging the Department of Energy to amend a 1992 rule limiting shower output to 2.5 gallons per minute. In 2013, the Obama administration further clarified that 2.5 liters per minutes applied even to a shower with multiple showers, which means that a shower with similar (3, 4?) shower heads together would produce a weak flow. Trump stopped our universal trouble at the twilight of his tenure, when the Ministry of Energy completed a rule described as “improving the quality of life”, providing “access to showers that can provide enough water for quality showers”. Basically, each shower head on a multi-shower nozzle would provide 2.5 liters of water.
But the dream was short-lived (a line from Ken Burns ’upcoming documentary on the history of the bathroom situation). The AP reports that Biden’s Department of Energy is expected to begin the process abolition amendment by the Trump-era Department of Energy as soon as next week. The statement quoted Kelly Speakes-Backman, acting assistant secretary of the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, noting that many parts of America are suffering from extreme drought. The U.S. Drought Monitor is currently showing that most of the West is experiencing this extreme drought, the worst in four years, at a time when droughts regularly occur historical intensity and potential future permanent drought. Newly released NASA satellite images California emissions shriveled reservoirs and drained lakes.
The AP notes that most manufacturers still adhere to the rules from 2013, so Trump’s hair may never have realized its full potential.
