And people say the Biden White House doesn't know how to have fun.

Anyone who can't accept the reality that this is a new low for the dignity of the White House is playing some serious mental gymnastics.

For context, this also occurred on the same day the SCOTUS ruled Biden can't contact social media networks to remove posts by his opposition.

Yes the ruling about social media is a much more adult type conversation that whose cocaine it is in the White House. We know whose it is, and it will never be confirmed so whats the point?

The media has already closed the story and law enforcement already gave up- in a total protection racket, as expected.

Found in a tourist area.

Not really.

"The lobby where the drugs were found is where many official visitors and staffers enter."

Even the tours are led by staff

"Those tours are invitation-only and led by White House staff for friends, family and other guests."

Yep. After undergoing security checks visitors are required to leave their phones in boxes to be retrieved after their tours. The cocaine was found in that area.

If you believe that farce, it was found in the West Wing and in a part tourists usually don’t go.

you know how you know that no one wants to find out?

Lack of immediate drug tests for every resident and worker in the White House.

Now its too late, and we are 48 hours away from the surveillance camera system "malfunctioned”, the guards were "asleep/occupied with something else" and the tapes were already "erased".

West Wing Lobby.

The lobby where the drugs were found is where many official visitors and staffers enter. It is also open to staff-led tours of the West Wing, which are scheduled for nonworking hours on the weekends and evenings. Those tours are invitation-only and led by White House staff for friends, family and other guests. Most staffers who work on the complex can request an evening or weekend tour slot, but there is often a long wait list.

If a White House employee brought in the drugs, it would be easier to determine, because staff are fingerprinted and subjected to drug tests. A visitor would be harder to pin down; there were tours on Friday, Saturday and Sunday last week.

Maybe it was planted there.

Visitor= Friend or family or invited guest of a resident or staffer. Who can be tracked.
