US calls for shower rules to be eased after Trump hair complaints

You couldn't make this stuff up.

Hey, when one knows they have totally failed at leadership and crisis management, might as well go for the gusto! Everyone knows faucets win votes.

You just can't make this up now, can you?

I'm sure Brexiteers will immediately jump on the opportunity here to ditch very strict EU's rules on the max flow rates and 'improve' British rules so as to stimulate British shower head export to the US, even if it means ditching higher energy and natural resource conservation rules.

Another element to make this huge FTA with them a success. :D

You have to give it to him, the man has his priorities straight... :rotfl:

I mean, higher flow shower heads are obviously way more important than mandating face mask usage right now. Another homerun from the stable genius.

In the middle of the worst pandemic and economic crisis in living memory the GOP is laser focused on showers, destroying the USPS, and QAnon.

Of course, some will be thinking this is about a 'special Russian shower'. :twisted:

With global warming, a growing population and increasing water insecurity (and not just in the USA), there is the necessity for more efficient shower heads, toilets, sink faucets, clothes washers and other water fixtures in your home and workplace. You can get high efficiency shower heads and toilets that can flush much better with far less water and for modest costs. Reversing water saving regulations are very foolish in the short and long term just to make 'liberals squirm'.

Although high throughput shower heads do have their use for people with lots of long hair.
My sink faucet has a detent when opened up, and water at the detent comes out at water saving speed. But you can still open up full if you want to. Filling a sink slower doesn't safe water at all after all. So there is room for compromise.

Reminds me of that Seinfeld episode of the low flow shower heads and them trying to buy black market ones...Was hilarious.

Nothing so exotic.

Just amazed that with all the issues that confront the President that he takes time to worry about shower attachments.

Surely his staff can take care of the plumbing.

Don't tell Donald about the black market showerheads, especially the Commando 450.

It's hard to argue with the logic. You can either have enough water flow and spend less time with it running or not enough water flow and spend more time with it running. With some hotels it is barely more than a mist and takes forever to take a shower. And if I'm paying the bill, you stay out of it.

So, you support paying the full macroeconomic forever cost of that water?

For your wishes to work out, not only would you need a restricted flow nozzle, but a timer that can't be reset as well.

Pretty easy to remove the flow restrictor in most shower heads. I won't buy one that I can't remove. You would think he'd just have a person that can do this.

Have you not figured it out yet? Every time there is a compromising story, he will throw out some insane story to drown out the other story.

He’s probably thrown this story out to distract from his comments on defunding the USPS to frustrate mail voting.
