165,000 Americans Have Died, 30 Million More Are Unemployed, and We Are Worrying About Showerheads…


Nobody had an issue for almost 30 years before the fat man couldn’t get ‘wet’.

The Trump Administration wants to change the definition of a showerhead to let more water flow, addressing a pet peeve of the president who complains he isn’t getting wet enough.

So showerheads — you take a shower, the water doesn’t come out.

So what do you do? You just stand there longer or you take a shower longer? Because my hair — I don’t know about you, but it has to be perfect. Perfect.”

Since 1992, federal law has dictated that new showerheads shouldn’t pour more than 2.5 gallons of water per minute (9.5 liters).

But here’s the ‘rub’ber ducky:

As newer shower fixtures came out with multiple nozzles, the Obama administration defined the showerhead restrictions to apply to what comes out in total. So if there are four nozzles, no more than 2.5 gallons total should come out between all four.

Given the lack of attention to actual crises…this is simpy ludicrous. And I can’t imagine that the president’s personal facilities in the White House or any of his clubs or homes lacks state of the art plumbing…gold plated or otherwise. shrug.

“Frankly it’s silly,” deLaski (Andrew deLaski, executive director of the energy conservation group Appliance Standards Awareness Project) said. “The country faces serious problems. We’ve got a pandemic, serious long-term drought throughout much of the West. We’ve got global climate change. Showerheads aren’t one of our problems.”

But maybe the president just needs some advice that he’s not getting from Sean Hannity or Jared Kushner. All he has to do is ask!

“If the president needs help finding a good shower, we can point him to some great consumer websites that help you identify a good showerhead that provides a dense soak and a good shower,” deLaski said.

btw: What’s the current water situation in Flint MI?
