It appears that whatever President Donald Trump does it triggers liberals, and the ‘press elite’ to fly into an epic meltdown. And the current White House remodels are the same. After the Obama’s dwelled in the White House for eight long years, the property has fallen into decay and is creeping with insects and vermin. Presently, while the stalwart Obama-bots will attempt and deny this reality, the various articles expounded on it in the past demonstrates it is valid.
The Atlantic reported back in 2013 how bad the roach and vermin problem was in the 213 old building. Martha Joynt Kumar, a professor of political science at Towson University recounted her brush with the nasty bug. “It was the size of a small drone, I wanted to bag it so that the GSA would know what kind of issue we had, I chased it. But it got away behind some wiring.”
Also, whiteoutpress.com reported on Barck Obama’s repulsive roach infestation back in 2013:
“But one would think that the most powerful man in the richest country in the world could stop cockroaches, rats, and mice from taking over his home. Carter had mice. Bush had rats. And Obama has cockroaches.”
“Perhaps it’s fitting that the entire White House press pool – the members of the media assigned to cover the President by their respective news outlets – are the main victims of the current cockroach problem. They spun their stories to help get Barack Obama elected and they’re even dedicated enough to censor the latest vomit-inducing episode just to spare the administration some embarrassment.”
Even former Obama security spokesman Tommy Vietor told Politico that there were big bug issues in the White House. “We had bug zappers going 24/7, it’s the best office I will ever have, but that building is old and the infrastructure needs constant improvement.”
Also, liberal CNN briefly touched on the constant pest problem at the White House and stated that there was a “persistent common house fly problem” which has been a “distraction during key meetings with senior officials.”

Now, in order to get the White House back up to snuff, after the Obama’s let it fall apart, Trump and his family have left the historic home for 17-days. Extensive renovations have begun in the West Wing where maintenance crews will replace a barely functioning 27-year-old air conditioning system. Not only will the air conditioner finally be replaced, but there are also numerous ceiling leaks in the West Wing.
Daily Mail reported on the repairs that are being made.
White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters told reporters: ‘The HVAC systems are 27 years old, but due to the 24/7, 365-day use a year, the estimated age of the system based off of usage is 81 years old.’
According to Walters, the South Portico steps on the South Lawn are also getting fixed, the first restoration in 64 years.
There will be renovations in the Navy Mess kitchen, a lower lobby in the West Wing, and the IT system, along with ‘cosmetic upgrades’ like carpet and painting.
With no AC in the West Wing, aides will be camping out in the Old Executive Office Building.
‘I don’t think any of you would like to be in the West Wing in an August D.C. summer day when it’s over 100 degrees with no air conditioning,’ said Walters.
Politico reported that following heavy rains, there were three ceiling leaks in the West Wing.
Here is hoping the best to the renovations so the President may return back to comfort working for the people.
