The Port-A-Potties At Trump’s Inaugration Come With An Ironic Logo

A major port-a potty company supplying toilet facilities to presidential inauguration, has an unfortunate name (at least, for Donald Trump).


If this isn’t the universe playing a joke on Donald Trump...

A major port-a-potty company supplying portable toilets for Trump’s inauguration on Jan. 20 at National Mall, Washington D.C.  has one, very serious problem...

The company has emblazoned it’s name, “Don’s Johns,” all over the cubicle doors and some people have noticed it’s resemblance to the president elect’s full name, Donald John Trump.

Being the very image conscious man that he is, Trump has decided to cover up the logo with blue tape (and in the process, made it even more obvious and turned it into a social media trend). Although the name is still discernible if you look close enough.

For all his efforts, Trump was rewarded by a trending Twitter hashtag #DonsJohns.

This particular name is not a joke by the company. In fact, the Don’s Johns company has provided toilet facilities for many major outdoor events in Washington, including President Barack Obama’s inaugurations in 2009 and 2013.

“We don't know why it's being done. We didn't tell someone to do it,” said Robert Weghorst, chief operating officer for Don's Johns, who became aware that the company name was being covered up and the company itself had gone viral. “We're proud to have our name on the units.”

The Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies and the Presidential Inaugural Committee were not immediately available for a reply.

But obviously, the name was just too good for Twitter users to pass up.











It’s about time, Trump developed a sense of humor, because the universe is determined to play jokes on him.
