The White House hasn’t always been White….
The Radical –
31st Jan 2017
……Originally it was painted Grey
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue was not painted White
until after the British troops set fire to it in 1814
with white paint used to cover over burn marks and smoke damage.
Designed by an Irishman called James Hoban, The White House, before
the War of 1812, which didn’t finish until 1815,
was called the President’s House,the President’s Palace or the President’s Mansion.
So any suggestion by Trump that he lives in a house of racial supremacy is bunkum.
But when he has a further moment of madness
will he change the name to the Trump House or Trump Tower II ?
The thought is not so unusual considering the changes already made.
There is a one lane bowling alley there already built for Tricky Dickie.
What would Trump residence look like?
We could imagine from the last Dictator, the Austrian Corporal,
who imagined his Germanic race superior.
Roman architecture filled with stolen famous paintings ?
Could he want to compete with the Getty Collection ?
Not intending to be outdone by Scottish / Irish immigrants
This immigrant of a German has plans to purify America White,
but remember the Grey Areas.
His wife Melania originates from the former Yugoslavia,
so she may have some influence in the changes to be made.
America became rich on the back of African slaves.
Could the current occupant leave it the “Black” House,
as stain on multicoloured America.
What colour would a President Bernie Sanders paint the White house ?
All the colours of the Rainbow ?
Now we could really appreciate the Rainbow House.
