'Don's Johns' label taped over on Trump inauguration portable toilets

'Don's Johns' label taped over on Trump inauguration portable toilets

It's a perfectly reasonable answer, except according to DCist, Don's Johns has provided portable toilets for three previous inaugurations and this has never happened before.

The Associated Press reported that workers have put blue tape over the company name on dozens of the stalls that have gone up near the Capitol ahead of next Friday's inauguration.

As some people have pointed out, it's possible workers fear pranksters might be tempted to do something with the "Don's Johns" sign, considering the name of the man getting inaugurated next week.

"We're proud to have our name on our units and we're planning to take the tape off our logos", Don's Johns Chief Executive Officer Rob Weghorst said in an interview with the New York Post.

Donald Trump hasn't even been sworn in yet - but the cover-ups have already started. "Now we know", an employee of the company told The Post.

A spokesman for the Architect of the Capitol said the tape helps comply with a no-advertising policy.

Thousands of portable toilets from a company called "Don's Johns" are being placed on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Now, someone is using masking tape to obscure the logo on some of the portable toilets prior to inauguration day.

Conrad Harrell, the president of Don's Johns, a Virginia-based supplier of portable toilets, said he didn't know the logos would be hidden, or who was doing it, and he hoped the coverings would be removed.

The Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies and the Presidential Inaugural Committee declined to comment.
