Don’s Johns

Sometimes a metaphor actually plops into your lap.  Or your hands.  Or into someplace you hope you don’t drop your cell phone.

That happened to me today, when I read an article in the Huffington Post about one of the, ahem, priorities, of the folks setting up Friday’s Inauguration of Donald J. Trump.  And really, it is a metaphor for what is to come.

You see, whenever there is a big event here in the DC area, there’s a lot of shit going on.  Literally.  Lots of people = lots of pee and poop!  So port-a-potties line the Mall, surround the Monuments; and ring the Capitol itself.  And in the DC area, one company has the scoop on poop.

But, according to the Huffington Post,

Someone’s Covering The ‘Don’s Johns’ Logo On Port-a-Potties For Trump’s Inauguration

When I saw that headline, my first thought was, “Of course they are.  They’re covering up all kinds of shit.”  But this time they’re not covering up the shit, but the name.

Of course folks are covering up Don’s shit.  But it’s up to us to pull off the tape and show the world Don’s Johns.  That will be our job for the duration of Trump’s presidency — whether that is for 2 weeks or 4 years.  To pull off the tape on Don’s Johns.  To expose every breach of law, each unethical behavior, all threats to the rule of law.

THAT is how we will survive Trump.  Because you can’t paper over the truth for long.

  1. I’m going to invest in duct tape stock. Courage to us all.

  2. That is my main goal … uncovering the shit. A stinky, sometimes sickening job, but somebody’s gotta do it! (Personally I wish somebody would shove him into the port-a-pottie and leave him there!)

  3. Can we expect some mean tweets about blue painter’s tape from Trump Tower of Horrors?

    Elyse, I’m afraid I’m sinking into a depression now. I’m not waiting for the economy. 😦

  4. I saw this on the local news as well and thought, what do you want to bet it’s the incoming administration that’s been ordered to cover up the name by the man with a fragile ego?

  6. Why can’t he just be PROUD of Don’s Johns? Sounds kind of like Don Juan. Anyway, I’ve got my Shittens on order to wipe up the mess he’s gonna make. Don’t want any on my hands… eeeewwww! 🙂

  7. It’s hysterical in it’s own way but I can’t help asking what’s the point of using blue tape? Looks kinda stupid. Maybe I just got my answer. Why not something pretty? No, not a portrait! And no, this isn’t the first coverup he’s done.

  11. Four years of this? Gonna need a LOT of tape! But no doubt Trump’s already heavily invested in coverup tape.

  12. Reblogged this on Still Skeptical After All These Years and commented:
    I thought this piece by my blogging friend Elyse, at Fifty Four and a Half, has some staying power.

  13. Surprised. I thought he liked pee (see dossier). Now he has the power to be a true ‘pettyphile’. Frightening…but no stopping me: I hit him anew today.

  17. What a metaphor for this disaster. Not even a proper, fitted working toilet. But a cheap, plastic, portable one that takes a shortcut in order to get the shit through in the fastest way possible. It’s really perfect.

  18. Actually, they’re really covering up the “Made in Russia” just below the brand name.
