Food, Melania Trump, and Memes: Donald Trump's White House Infested with Mice, Roaches and Ants @balleralert Donald Trump's White House Infested with Mice, Roaches and Ants – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ NBC 4 Washington has obtained several hundred White House work orders, which include several requests to deal with an infestation of mice, cockroaches, and ants. According to reports, mice have been spotted in the situation room and the Navy mess food service area of the historic landmark and home of the Celebrity-in-chief. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cockroaches have been seen in at least four other parts of the White House, while ants have made a home in the chief of staff’s office. However, extermination demands weren’t the only maintenance requirements included in the work order. One request asked for a redecoration of national security adviser H.R. McMaster, while another requested a new Oval Office toilet seat. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The mice issue dates back to at least two years, however, other requests from 2017, include new furniture for White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and drapery installation in Melania Trump’s second-floor East Wing office. Although the work orders vary, the U.S. General Service Administration (GSA) says the entire process is a lot of work, considering the age of the building. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It’s an enormous job. GSA is assigned to manage that job,” former GSA Inspector said. “GSA hires contractors and subcontractors for the [maintenance] work. Then the agency must watch over the contractors.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “They are old buildings,” he said. “Any of us who have old houses know old houses need a lot of work.”

Others reportedly believe his anger stems from his failed attempt to purchase the Buffalo Bills in 2014. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “He’s trying to destroy us,” the owner revealed. “He’s trying to use race to divide the players and our fans. It’s all over a grudge.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Trump’s attacks began to increase in September when he said players who kneel should be fired, calling them “sons of b*tches.” The attack received widespread backlash and prompted even more players to ban together in protest against Trump. However, the attacks didn’t end there, they continued week by week with attacks as recent as Tuesday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Wednesday, the league made their own efforts to end the movement. According to Bleacher Report, the league has made a proposal to players to contribute “at least $89 million over a seven-year period” to causes in African-American communities in an effort to halt the protests.

In the letter, according to Billboard, Koehler wrote, “it is morally reprehensible for an accused person and his bully lawyer to issue derogatory and defamatory statements against a young alleged rape victim.” She said, “it is also criminal – in the state of Washington – when those vicious attacks are issued in the form of threats.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, despite Koehler’s letter, the alleged victim feels like she can’t stand up to a celebrity. According to TMZ, the victim told Auburn officials and the King County D.A. to “put a halt to the criminal investigation of [Nelly].

Today, racism is so blatant, especially as it’s spewed directly from the White House, that it needs to be discussed with our children to prevent the worst case scenario. They need to have a clear understanding that there are some ignorant people in this world that will not respect them because of the color of their skin. They must understand that people will hate them and target them because of a little extra melanin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many of us raise our children to love and respect others, but then you have some people that could care less how you or your children feel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Racism is not an inherited trait. It is a learned behavior that has been pushed onto children at a young age. Children don’t just start hating other races, they are taught to be hateful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It doesn’t make it any easier when you have a clown in office who takes every opportunity to put down other races and nationalities. We have to instill in our children that they are beautiful, they are smart , and most of all important. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don’t let another day pass you by without having the conversation about racism with your children. They are never too young. Remember parents, you are your child’s first teacher.
