Are there really RATS in the White House? Oh yes, along with cockroaches, ants, flies, maggots, spiders and other large bugs.

Now I bet you thought the title of this article meant something else, but the truth is – the home of our nation’s First Family in Washington is infested.

There are numerous reports about this problem of out of control vermin by Newsweek, the Huffington Post, Newsmax and other “fake news” outlets. And you can be sure that no one knows more about “out of control vermin” than the fake news media stationed in D.C. – so it must be true!

After two centuries of use, the wear and tear catches up. The last real renovations took place in the 1950s, but many of the inner walls remain as they were originally.

I remember Mr. Trump telling a few of us in a private meeting, long before he became President, that he was ashamed of the worn-out dining area of the White House and personally called the sitting President’s Chief of Staff and offered to give an anonymous gift of several million dollars to see that this room, in which visiting Heads of State eat their meals, would be clean and well-furnished to represent the American people in the proper way. He went on to say that he never got a response from anyone at the White House.

According to Newsweek, White House records indicate that the Staff Situation Room is often invaded by mice and officials have asked the exterminator for “more traps.” The West Wing is described as having a “Rodent Problem” and traps need inspected “because they’re smelling something like dead mice.”

Other recent requests include a new toilet seat to replace the worn-out one in the Oval Office and cleaning up the “large yellow spots,” whatever that means, that were left in the carpets during the days of the Obamas. Yuck!

Now as you think about it, these are a few more reasons you might not want to be President. It makes me wonder, “Are there Rats in Congress too?”

The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings’ palaces.”
Proverbs 30:28
