The Don’s Johns Coverup Continues Part Two with Photo Proof of Double Standard

Don's Johns Proof
15th and Pennsylvania Ave, NW

While the national news may have moved on to more trivial issues like Cabinet confirmations and such, rest assured, I will not rest, until we get to the bottom!!! Ed. Note: I also have more hawk photos to post – keep those coming too! Thanks to Anthony for sending this update on our continuing coverage of the Don’s Johns cover up.

“On my walk through the National Mall & adjacent areas earlier today, it seemed like the Don’s Johns logos were the only logos being hidden. Logos from a multitude of other vendors in the same areas remained untouched.”

Update – and another contrast from ksutton she took on Sunday:

    Gene’s Johns are covered up as well. They most likely have not gotten to all of them yet.

    • Even if that’s true, which it remains to be seen, you’re saying priority was given to cover up Don’s Johns first? Interesting…

      • Kingman Park

        Who said that?

    • Am

      According to the Don’s Johns COO on CNBC yesterday, Don’s Johns also owns Gene’s Johns.

        Gene John’s labels are being removed FYI

        “Our staff determined that the Gene’s Johns signs can be easily peeled off,” said Justin Kieffer, spokesman for the architect’s office. “The Don’s Johns signs cannot and are being covered with tape.”

        • Please update us on United porta potties, pictured above, as soon as you find out! Also find out why they chose to cover Don’s first. Thanks!

            It’s complicated. You wouldn’t understand.

          • Damn my public school education!!

    • JohnH

      How many are there that it takes a multi-day effort to put a piece of tape on a port-a-potty?

      • MadMax

        We should totally pay for an investigation to find out.

  • anon

    Heh heh, bottom.

      Part Two? If this is number 2, how did number 1 whiz by me?

  • Truxton Thomas

    It’s the smoking gun! Er, the steaming pile!

  • A

    It’s about time the nation starts giving a shit about porta-potty’s brands. They’ve been neglected for so long.

    • FridayGirl

      Pun intended, I assume? Hahaha…..

  • Michael Pierce

    I always knew that Trump supporters were full of shit!

  • A

    The Democrats are so piss-poor they couldn’t even afford their President’s name on a porta potty! Sad! Also, media.

    • sasha

  • anon

    I just want to get out there with my giant sharpie and correct it to Trump’s Dumps

    • anon

      I’ve been giggling about “Trumpers Dumpers” ever since the first PoPville Don’s Johns post…

    You can cover up the signs all you want, but Trumpey is still synonymous with crap. #FakePresident

    What happens to a dream deferred?
    Does it dry up
    Like a raisin in the sun?
    Or fester like a sore–
    And then run?
    Does it stink like rotten meat?
    Or crust and sugar over–
    like a syrupy sweet?
    Maybe it just sags
    like a heavy load.
    Or does it explode?

    Anonymous, no offense, but the fact that someone in a position of authority decided to selectively censor portapotties based on a similarity to the PEotUS’s name is a bit wacky. Get a grip! Sad!

  • Blithe

    I, also, disagree. Under stress people often explode. Others wilt — giving in to depression and helplessness. Those who are more empowered and more supported with more resources might even thrive under the challenge. If humor and the opportunity to share and vent helps avoid even one “explosion” or one person’s anxiety, or even one person’s depression, I’m all for it.
    . Right now some of us are terrified of being governed by people who not only do not have our best interests at heart, but who appear to overlook the possibility that we might even have interests that need to be respected and addressed. Parents of disabled children were likely not heartened by Betsy de Vos — who apparently has not even heard of IDEA. I’d be happy to go on about the lack of experience and qualifications of many, if not most, of Trump’s cabinet picks, or what it might be like to be female, Muslim, or African American — or even female, Muslim AND African American, waiting for the impact of the current administration’s policies, culture, and whims on our lives and prospects. The short version though, is that I prefer humor, however dark, to explosions, and I hope that the bikers for Trump and there ilk do as well. “Wacky” trumps (hahaha) some of the very noxious alternatives.
    . Might be a good time to develop some empathy. You don’t have to be a Liberal to see that….

    anonymous, have you ever heard of the expression “laughing so you don’t cry”?

  • JohnH

    I drove by some port-a-potties on 12th St NW that were covered. Nowhere near the Capitol and a couple blocks off the parade route – but a couple blocks from Trump Hotel.
    This has nothing to do with the ceremony, TV cameras, etc
    This has only to do with Trump. They did not do any of this the last few inaugurations.

  • I did a photo walk around the capitol and the mall today. Along the mall, virtually all (with a few random exceptions) of the porta-johns have labels taped over (quite neatly with grey duct tape; and other areas, like Indiana Ave are covered with some very pricey looking peel and stick white paper). At and around the Capitol, there are many Gene’s Johns that do NOT have the labels covered or removed, and they are right next to Don’s Johns, which are covered (more or less with ratty blue painter’s tape). More interestingly to me, is that NOTHING else of a rental advertising nature is covered up: the signs on all the rental fences; the signs on all the electrical rental equipment (e.g., sound and lighting), and even the rental golf carts I saw being brought in. C’mon man; at least if you’re trying to convince us it’s about “no advertising,” make a serious effort. I can send photos to Pop if he wants them.

  • JustSayin

    Wondering how long it’ll take before these wonderful blank canvasses being provided allllll around the parade route start filling up….

  • The jimmy

    Why not put a sticker of Trump’s face on the doors? Great PR for the man.

  • Gerry

    Why is this a surprise? If they said “Barry’s Bousehouse’s” 8 years ago, I would assume that they would do the same.

    • JohnH

      No, they were actually busy dealing with tools named Donald Trump who were accusing him of being a secret Muslim and not a US citizen.

    • Michael Pierce

      Maybe, but nobody ever accused Obama of enjoying having Russians pee on him.

      • Gerry

        haha sad but true!

  • M

    I wish someone would sharpie the hell out of these with “Trump’s Dumps.”
