White Trash

2001 Arkansas Hillbillies move out of WH

In 2000, President Clinton and his wife started furnishing their newly purchased home in New York. In addition to shipping $28,500 worth of White House furniture to Chappaqua, they also began accepting lavish gifts and furnishing from friends and supporters. The reported total values of these personal gifts was approximately $190,000.

In 2001, following public disclosure and criticism, the White House white trash couple agreed to return White House furnishings they had had no right to take and also pay $86,000 which they said was the value of the gifts they had received.

2001 Clinton staff damage

According to White House press secretary Ari Fleischer, Clinton staffers deliberately removed the letter “W” from 100 computer keyboards, vandalized or deliberately moved plugs to 75 telephones and six fax machines, cut ten phone lines, wrote obscene graffiti and overturned office furniture. They also threw a large amount of usable office supplies in the trash.

In the White House itself, a photocopy machine was left with nude photos hidden in the paper tray so they would come out from time to time mixed in with other copies.

Rumors of damage to or pilfering from Air Force One were declared false by both President Bush and the plane’s Chief Steward.

    I remember the man who was my landlord for some years telling me about some horror stories involving Section 8 parasites in his rental properties.They’d pay rent for a month or two then quit.It took months to evict them.When he did,they’d trash the place.Punch holes in the walls,tear screens out ,smash toilets and throw paint on new kitchen cabinets.
