Twitter is Clogging up With Toilet Humour After Trump 'Reveals' Flushing Problems in US
'People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times as opposed to once. They end up using more water,' Trump said to a White House gathering on Friday.

US President Donald Trump has done it again.
Addressing a White House gathering on Friday, Trump told the high-level meeting, that the government was "looking very strongly" at water pressure troubles in the nation's bathrooms.
“People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times as opposed to once. They end up using more water,” Trump said.
Such is the rampant flushing in the US that other fixtures in the bathroom have dried up, apparently.
“You can’t wash your hands practically, there’s so little water comes out of the faucet, and the end result is you leave the faucet on and it takes you much longer to wash your hands, you end up using the same amount of water,” he added. The US Prez further stated that he had asked the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to intervene and investigate the issue.
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— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) December 6, 2019
Noticing the level of detail in Trump's voice made netizens flush out jokes and mockery at the expense of him.

Trump expresses frustration about water efficiency, says sinks don’t have enough pressure and people have to flush toilets multiple times. He says he has directed the EPA to look at opening up water standards. It’s called rain, he says, referring to states with lots of water. pic.twitter.com/pwvzqULeGB— Jeff Mason (@jeffmason1) December 6, 2019
Oh great! Now the EPA is going to limit me to only being able to flush 9 times. Thanks Trump! https://t.co/dmQNR7W8Mb— Neil Eisenberg (@neileisen) December 6, 2019
