President Donald Trump held a rally in Michigan Wednesday night, timed to coincide with the House of Representatives voting to impeach him.
Trump became just the third U.S. president to ever be impeached. But without a doubt, he became the first president to, in the wake of impeachment, let America know he doesn’t have problems with toilets.
A couple of weeks back, in a roundtable about removing bureaucratic red tape, Trump went on a tangent about how Americans now need to flush their toilets 15 times, because of low-flow regulations.
It was such an oddly specific anecdote that people were perplexed. Was Trump flushing the toilet 15 times in a single sitting? And if so…. why?
At his rally, Trump tried to correct the record, noting that it was you, you, who had to flush a lot. Not him. He only needed one flush. The one-flush president.
According to CNN’s Daniel Dale, while talking about low-flow regulations, the crowd yelled “Toilets.”
“Ten times. Right? Ten times.” Trump said. “Not me, of course, not me. But you.”
The president: "Sinks. Showers. And what goes with a sink and a shower?" Crowd: "TOILETS!" The president: "Ten times. Right? Ten times." He adds, "Not me, of course, not me. But you."— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) December 19, 2019
Trump is now complaining of media coverage of his previous comments about people flushing toilets 15 times. This is the weirdest Trump rally in a long, long time. https://t.co/B7J3PaSLuL— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) December 19, 2019
It is unclear when the U.S. Senate will take up the House’s impeachment articles, and hold a trial to possibly remove the president from office.
