Moving day approaches- “deep cleaning” of
White House, Jill Biden’s $1M bathroom
renovation plan

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 1/16/2021 7:23:17 AM

Pallets of empty cardboard boxes were delivered Wednesday to the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. Moving day is less than a week away and preparations are underway for Trump’s departure and the Bidens arrival. Before the Bidens arrive, deep cleaning is scheduled to take place in the White House and Jill Biden has plans for a million-dollar bathroom renovation in the East Wing. We are still in a pandemic so it’s reasonable that intense cleaning will happen as one group leaves and another moves into the White House. This year the cleaning that takes place during the transition between two administrations is more intense (and costly) than normally done.

Walk in bathtub. Roll in shower. Lots of grab bars. Slip proof floor. It all adds up....to considerably less than a million. But, the contractor knows he can over charge and get away with it.

She need not go to the trouble and expense. Biden won't make a week in office. I still have hope that he will not be inaugurated next week. But if he is, he will either step down for mental health reasons, or have a Scalia incident.

Yes #1, she will be. Mrs O never wanted the job. She did the minimum required. She did want the perks though. Mrs Joe has desperately wanted this for years. She is the type of Karen that will use this to the fullest. Get used to seeing her everywhere and being dictated to by every whim she has. The next few years will not be easy.

Jill Biden's renovation plans remind me of a recent bishop of the diocese of Wheeling-Charleston, Michael Bransfield, who raided diocesan funds to renovate "his" rectory, which included having a very luxurious bathroom installed. It was eventually discovered that he was boozing it up, taking expensive vacations, flying first class, throwing lots of parties, and hitting on young men. In other words, Bransfield was a fake Catholic and a fake bishop. I can only imagine that Biden and Biden will be much worse, given that the new "president" is also a fake Catholic.

Don't worry, our White House will be cleaner when the Trumps leave than it was when they moved in. It took 3 months just to scrape the hair straightener off the bathroom sinks after the obamas left.

Look on the bright side the Trumps had to clean up after the Obamas with all the Gerrycurl sticking to the walls at least the Trumps put the trash out. What now the Lincoln bedroom will be Hunters crack room. Handicap bathroom for the 'Big Guy'. Deep Cleaning? Hot Air just had to get one more dig in on President Donald J.

Don't be silly. The marxists are going to install the best secret surveillance system money can buy in order to keep Biden/Ho's staff from leaking until they are told to. They have to do this because President Trump discovered 0bama's system the kenyan put in place before he left, and President Trump and staff moved in. I ask President Trump to declassify what was found in the walls of the American People's White House. Please.

Various left-wing writers (some of them nominally Republican) have been salivating over the prospects of a GOP civil war. Nothing would make them happier than to see Republicans tearing each other apart in a fight over President Trump and the future of the GOP. However, this will not happen. It is a sign of how self-delusional the anti-Trump forces are that they could look at the House of Representatives vote on impeaching President Trump (for the second time) and convince themselves this is the harbinger of a Republican civil war. The House voted 232-197 Wednesday to impeach the president. Every
