President Donald Trump made a brazen claim about how many times it takes to flush a toilet that had people wondering about the commander-in-chief’s experiences when sitting on his throne.
“People are flushing toilets ten times, fifteen times — as opposed to once,” Trump claimed while arguing against water conservation efficiency standards.

The president’s claim did not match the personal experiences of many Twitter users, who questioned where Trump had gotten his information on the necessity of double-digit flushing.
Here’s some of what people said.

I have no doubt it takes Trump ten to fifteen flushes. He’s pretty big.

To be fair to the POTUS, it’s hard to get the whole Constitution and Bill of Rights down in one flush.

I could get an entire sweatshirt down in less flushes. And I have.

I do not say this lightly but I think this is the funniest thing he's ever said. Just the image of someone dolefully flushing a toilet for a 13th straight time, knowing it won't nearly be enough. https://t.co/u0FqdYhI7k

Trump taking 10-15 flushes is not a ringing endorsement for KFC and McDonald’s

He is the Commander in Chief of our Enameled Forces! It also explains why a toilet salesman was the acting AG.
