Breaking: The White House Is Becoming A Dump

Work orders for 2017 tell the story of an old house that's just getting older.

     The White House is over 200 years old, and when you're over 200 years old you're bound to have some old age issues. NBC Washington was able to grab an abundance of documents including some negative work orders. Donald Trump denies ever saying the White House was a dump, but if he did, he wouldn't be wrong. 

     The dozens of documents for 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. contain requests for ceiling leak repairs, chipped paint that needs repainting, and even toilets that occasionally overflow. The biggest issue that jumps off the page isn't a North Korea invasion, but the infiltration of mice and roaches. Four reports of cockroaches on the famous grounds have been reported, and bugs have chosen to take shelter in the office of the Chief of Staff. Mice have been truly living the high life, having what I assume to be plenty to eat in the White House's Navy mess food area.

     The Public Buildings Service is in charge of taking care of the requests, and it seems like it's just a constant uphill battle that costs the agency at least $100,000 a year to maintain.
