Under the direction of Melania Trump, the White House is becoming darker and darker in preparation for its Christmas from hell. But even when the property starts to look more and more like something out of a horror movie, it is not as scary as the swarm of plagues that has apparently invaded 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
According to NBC Washington, mice, badroaches and ants have been running rampant through the White House. Hundreds of White House work orders show that the president's administration made a series of requests to fight the infestation, along with requesting some more basic repairs.
According to the records, mice appeared in the situation room and in the kitchen of the naval kitchen, which could help explain President Trump's decision to opt for Mickey D instead of a White House meal. The authorities reported at least four badroach infestations on the White House grounds and asked the maintenance workers to annihilate an ant colony that had been installed in the office of the chief of staff.
According to reports, the maintenance team went to work setting up mousetraps outside Vice President Mike Pence's office and in the basement of the west wing, according to New York Daily News and apparently they got the work done. A follow-up request asked the White House gardening team "to check all the traps in the west wing … because they smelled something funky or [a] dead mouse".
But pests were not the only problem. Someone requested a new set of curtains for Melania's office in the east wing, hoping to create the "overall effect that the room is higher." According to reports, officials also asked for a new toilet seat in the Oval Office bathroom, and although the records do not identify who could have broken it, the office is, you know, Trump's.
Maybe Trump was into something when he reportedly called the place "a real dump" last summer, or maybe the weirdos are just another element of Melania's plan to make Christmas Goth Again.
