According to a recent New York Times piece, in which the authors (Glenn Thrush and Maggie Haberman) spoke with former staff members, government officials and congressional aides working with the new president, one of the first discoveries unlocked in the piece alludes to the hilarious idea.
“Aides confer in the dark because they cannot figure out how to operate the light switches in the cabinet room,” a sentence reads. To make this mental picture even more comical, another sentence notes that “Visitors conclude their meetings and then wander around, testing doorknobs until finding one that leads to an exit” (Writer’s note: If you picture this with “Yakety Sax” playing in the background, it’s a lot funnier).
The piece also reveals that Trump’s rose-colored lenses about the job he’s done so far as President are starting to fade thanks to “a relentless parade of bad headlines,” and that he is unsurprisingly focused on his brand and the White House’s decor. He reportedly said that he would like televised events to take place in the Oval Office thanks to the tweaks he’s made to the historic work room.
