Just a few days after news broke that the Russians may or may not have secretly filmed Donald Trump enjoying a urination fetish with Russian prostitutes, inauguration organizers realized to their horror that attendees will have an abundance of giant reminders of that scandal dotted around the capital during the event.
Don’s Johns bills itself as the “the Washington area’s top provider of portable toilet rentals” but it’s name is just a smidge to close to the “Don” about to be sworn in to office. According to the Associated Press, organizers have begun frantically covering up the names on the port-a-potty units in order to avoid the embarrassment.
It’s the great port-a-potty cover-up for President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration.
Workers preparing for the inauguration Jan. 20 have taped over the name of the company — “Don’s Johns” — that has long supplied portable restrooms for major outdoor events in the nation’s capital.
Virginia-based Don’s Johns calls itself the Washington area’s top provider of portable toilet rentals. But the name apparently strikes too close to home for inaugural organizers.
Workers have placed blue tape over the company name on dozens of portable restrooms installed near the Capitol for the inauguration.
Hilariously, the blue tape doesn’t really work. You can still see the name underneath.
For many internet users, news that Trump’s team was panicking about being compared to a literal box filled with pee was almost too much to handle.
A Port-a-potty company w/ a name similar to Donald Trump's…Best Friday the 13th ever. https://t.co/FGC6PKTfbd

What makes this situation especially funny is how seriously Trump is taking his inauguration, a ceremony he seems to believe will vindicate him and quash the growing number of critics of his administration. Instead, everything is falling apart. He can’t get celebrities to perform. He’s being outshined by a protest rally scheduled for the very next day. And now even the port-a-potty company is being used against him.
Trump will be luckily to make it out of Inauguration Day with any dignity at all.
