Trump to solve water pressure problem.
Sounds allot like Benito Mussolini promising to get the trains to run on time.
Basically create a problem that you can, or can't solve.
Then rail against those who oppose you.
I'm still intrigued by the light bulb issue. It's always seemed to be a trigger for a section of the population in the U.S., sort of a "Don't Tread on Me" statement.
The weird thing is LED bulbs have come down in price and they last for 50,000 to 100,000 hours or more.
The typical lifespan for an incandescent bulb is around 1,200 hours.
Why would you bitch about getting rid of a bulb that last 1-5% compared with a new LED bulb? And the energy efficiency of LEDs absolutely crushes incandescents.
I don't get it, in terms of logical thinking, but I do get it in terms of it being a symbol of "get off of my lawn".
As for the flushing statement...I think it was a shot at California's new law - Low-Flow Toilets Required In California For All Home Renovations
In the end it's such a weird thing to focus on.
edit: Light Bulb Showdown: LED Vs. CFL Vs. Incandescent - it's pretty simple, really, but...see "orange" above
Trump really is focusing on light bulbs making him look orange and...something about flushing toilets (I think he's referring to water saving sinks and showers, but I can't be sure).
From the article:
But...it does seem Trump actually made a self deprecating joke...
They were actually President W. H. Bush (How the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 Affects Light Bulbs), and as for the "orange look"
