I wonder which contractor is responsible for the new listening devices.

Not gold plated yet?  Sad.

Hopefully they caught all the Russian bugs that were planted recently.

I figure they are clearing the room of the Russian devices left by Kysliak and Lavrov.

Why would you re-carpet that...
 
2017-08-12 08:02:20 AM  
If the room is an oval, the contractors can't cut corners.

Well, there's truth to that. There is truth to that. There are certainly no corners. And you look, there's a certain openness. But there's nobody out there. You know, there is an openness, but I've never seen anybody out there actually, as you could imagine.

Not a a molecule of black left. Too bad it was probably washed by illegals day laborers.

Ewwww, now I have an image of butt naked Trump with his orange spray tanned face and obese pale white body.  Well, except for his arms that have color from golfing so much.  Well, except for the pale white band on his wrist from where a way too tight girly watch is usually suffocating his tiny hand.

It was cheaper to rebuild the whole thing and they knew it. They wanted to preserve the look of the building for historical reasons.
 
2017-08-12 10:01:13 AM  
They should now completely pad the room and make the door(s) only lockable from the outside.

It's basically a living history museum. Do the tour.

I've done it; Very pretty and impressive.  TV doesn't capture how tall some ceilings are but just not my thing.

More of an Air & Space and Natural History museum guy.

Been to Gettysburg too; battlefields are interesting but again not my thing.  Maybe because I grew up on the MD/PA line just south of Gettysburg.

Yeah, that's some sweet hardwood flooring.  Trump should ditch the carpet and just lay down a few throw-rugs.

They've all had huge rugs over that floor since it was installed. Weird.

DrD'isInfotainment: Renovation is for pussies


In June 1948 a leg of Margaret Truman's piano crashed through the floor in her second floor sitting room and through the ceiling of the Family Dining Room below. Investigators found the floor boards to have rotted, the main floor beam was split completely through, and the ceiling below had dropped 18 inches. The investigators determined that the west end of the Second Floor was sinking."

Pretty cool story, actually. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_House_Reconstruction a​nd http://www.whitehousemuseum.org/special/renovation-1948.htm

/ and now you know...the rest of the story

Nah, Trump will put those back in just like Daddy wants him to... This was all about Obama's Deep State listening devices.

It really shows the mentality of the Trump Administration.  They can't trust anyone.  Disgusting.

To be fair, it wouldn't be the first time the Resolute Desk got some hooker's urine on it--that thinks seen more ass than a rest stop toilet seat.  Heck, JFK was allegedly stuffing 15 year old prep school girls on it.
