House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) rolled out a novel defense of former President Donald Trump Monday, saying that he has no concerns about the former president’s alleged hoarding of classified documents in a bathroom at Mar-a-Lago because “a bathroom door locks.”

Responding to a reporter who asked about the now-viral bathroom photo, McCarthy also got in a shot at President Joe Biden’s own documents scandal, saying: “I don’t know, is it a good picture to have boxes in a garage that opens up all the time?”

Trump was indicted on 37 federal charges last week for his alleged willful mishandling of classified documents, which “included information regarding … nuclear programs; potential vulnerabilities of the United States and its allies to military attack; and plans for possible retaliation in response to foreign attack,” according to the indictment.

  1. Freeze Mr. Trump. Vacuuming a room is one thing. That bathroom must be disinfected.

    I pity the poor folks who have to handle those documents after the bathroom has been in use!

  2. Wow, great way to skew what he actually said. He wasn’t trying to use the bathroom locks as a “defense”. He was just using it, facetiously, as an answer to the reporter with a comparison to Biden. Like Biden had no protection, at least Trump had something.

  3. This is such a typical “news” piece. In other words, 90+% false.

    The Speaker wasn’t defending President Trump.

    The question to the Speaker was if it was a “good picture” to have classified docs in a bathroom. His answer was ““I don’t know; is it a good picture to have boxes in a garage that opens up all the time?” and he then mentioned that “a bathroom door locks.”

    He didn’t say it’s a good idea to keep classified docs in a bathroom, and there was no need to defend President Trump, regardless. The speaker mentioned bathroom locks only to point out the superior suitability of a bathroom over a garage which “…opens up all the time”.

    So sleazy and pathetic.
