Since taking office, President Biden has had his hands full rolling back the cruel, stupid, greedy, and cartoonishly evil policies that Donald Trump left for him to deal with. But today he struck at something that carries particular weight for the ex-president — and honestly, we can’t wait to hear his response.
On Friday, the Biden administration announced it was ending the Trump-era rule that loosened restrictions on shower-head water flow. The nation will return to the 2013 definition of a “showerhead,” which requires showerheads to expel no more than 2.5 gallons of water per minute.
The rule will have little impact on anything substantial since no new showerheads have been created to take advantage of the heavy flow allowed by the Trump administration rule — except perhaps to rankle the former
The level of water flow to showers, dishwashers, washing machines, and other aqueous devices was one of Trump’s most bizarre obsessions, as illustrated in what has to be the most incomprehensible and mystifying statements to ever made on the grounds of the White House:
“You take a shower, the water doesn’t come out, you wanna wash your hands, the water doeszzent [sic] come out, so what do you do, you just stand there longer? because I don’t know about you, but my hair has to be perfect. Dishwashers. You didn’t have any water so the people that do the dishes, you press it, and it goes again, and you do it again, and again so you might as well give them the water because you’ll end up using less water, so we made it so dishwashers now have…a lot more water, and in many places, in most places in the country, water’s not a problem, they don’t even know what to do with it. It’s called RAIN.”

We’re all very curious to see how Trump might respond to one of his signature issues being undone like this.
