While Donald Trump is on a very important/his 48th visit to a golf course this week, the Oval Office is undergoing some renovations. And as we all know, Trump is known for going a tad overboard with interior decoration.
A reporter snapped a pic of the empty office in a truly resonant symbol of our times:
So as we are left to ponder the results of these redecorations on Trump's watch, people have concerns.
With 2,000 likes, this simple request seems to be resonating.
Trump already replaced the muted red curtains in the Oval Office with gold curtains because consistent branding is important to salesmen. He's already on record as saying that the White House is a 'dump.' And his current vacation is slated to last another two weeks, so whatever is happening in the Oval Office has plenty of time to happen.
Artists' renderings of what the redecoration might look like flooded the Internet.
Not everyone was so concerned though. For Eric, the empty room offered a bit of relief.
I feel safer with an empty Oval Office than I do with Trump in it.— Eric Grant (@ericgrant) August 11, 2017
And this user imagined what an exterior renovation might look like.
Here's hoping the drapes are where it ends.
I grew up in a marginally superstitious family who brought some beliefs and hocus-pocus superstitions from the old country. I couldn't make too much noise late at night for fear of attracting a "jinn." I couldn't point at cemeteries or stare into a mirror for too long or my face would become deformed, and heaven help me if I was ever mean to or disobeyed my parents or grandparents, because then I'd be looking at a cursed life that would ruin me until the day that I died.
But the idea of "back luck" or stepping on cracks, walking under ladders, or stealing a black cat's macchiato isn't something that my family really bought into. Sure, we believed in supernatural stuff and the idea that karma gets back around to mess with you or your kids, but "bad luck"?
No honey, it isn't luck that's ruining your life, it's an unseen species of metaphysical monsters that exist in a different plane we know little about—but they are mentioned in the Quran, so be careful!
There are phenomena so unfortunate that simply looking at images of them will cause the same bad luck to befall you. So on this Friday the 13th, gaze upon these pictures with extreme caution.
