Trump is being impeached in the House of Representatives, but he went on a White House rant about toilet flushing on Friday.
Trump said, “We have a situation where we’re looking very strongly at sinks and showers and other elements of bathrooms where you turn the faucet on in areas where there’s tremendous amounts of water and the water rushes out to sea because you could never handle it. And you don’t get any water; you turn on the faucet and you don’t get any water.”
Here's the video, via WaPo, of Trump discussing toilet flushing: "We have a situation where we're looking very strongly at sinks and showers, and other elements of bathrooms … You turn on the faucet and you don't get any water … People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times." pic.twitter.com/pPE0im4RxL

The President continued, “People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once. They end up using more water.”
Trump also returned to his obsession with light bulbs, “The light bulb. They got rid of the light bulb that people got used to. The new bulb is many times more expensive and I hate to say it, it doesn’t make you look as good because being a vain person that’s important to me.”
Trump is trying to prove that he is worthy president by spending his time obsessing about light bulbs and toilet flushing. The issue with having to flush a toilet ten or fifteen times seems more like a Trump problem and not a national crisis, but it would explain his recent mystery trip to Walter Reed.
The president has clearly lost it.
As his presidency gets flushed, Trump is obsessed with toilets.
