To continue his war on water-using household fixtures and appliances, Pres. Donald Trump has now gone after dishwashers. The machines that wash dishes, not the people who wash dishes.
In remarks at a Wednesday night rally, Trump went straight to the water problems he apparently has.
“Remember the dishwasher? You’d press it. Boom! There’d be like an explosion. Five minutes later, you open it up. The steam pours out,” Trump said.
First of all, that is not how dishwashers work, and he has unwittingly revealed that he’s never used a dishwasher. Then he added this.
“Now, you press it 12 times. Women tell me . . . ‘You know, they give you four drops of water.’”
Second, no, you never have to press a dishwasher start button 12 times. It doesn’t work that way.
Third, men do dishes, too, as was pointed out by several people on Twitter, including Sen. Claire McCaskill.
Frankly this comment tells you a lot about how elite this guy is. And sexist. He’s never run a dishwasher. And thinks only women do. Btw dishwashers today work great. Much better than they used to. What an idiot. https://t.co/LOauszN5dr

Trump’s weird obsession with dishwashers and low flow toilets is so incredibly soul crushingly on brand I can’t stand it…. https://t.co/YPSNO4kFkM

Earlier this month, we wrote up the story about Trump’s toilet experiences, where he says people are having to flush the toilet repeatedly to get it to work.
“We have a situation where we’re looking very strongly at sinks, and showers and other elements of bathrooms where you turn the faucet on — and areas where there’s tremendous amounts of water — where the water rushes out to sea, because you could never handle it. And you don’t get any water.”
“You turn on the faucet, and you don’t get any water. They take a shower, and water comes dripping out. Just dripping out. Very quietly dripping out. People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once. They end up using more water. So the EPA is looking at that very strongly at my suggestion.”
Throughout the rally, Trump went on to keep up his tirade against the energy-efficient light bulbs, among other things.
Oh, and he told us (again) that he doesn’t wear a hairpiece.
