A lot happens in the Oval Office, especially with President Donald Trump sitting at the Resolute desk, making big decisions and huge changes in this country. Although a number of photos have come from this very important spot, showing our Commander-in-Chief hard at work, a recent shot caught a little brown box with an even smaller red button on it. Of course, where there’s a button, there’s a response when pushed, and people are shocked at what this one does in addition to how many times he’s used it.
Trump has a lot on his desk right now with getting the nation back on track and also defeating our adversaries in North Korea and the Middle East. This is a fight that’s been brewing for years that’s gone ignored until he stepped in with an assertive mission to fix it – no matter who he has to bomb to send the message that America is back and human atrocities or attacks against our country won’t be tolerated. It’s not a job for the weary or faint at heart, especially since everything he does is met with a huge amount of resistance from liberals who apparently prefer the passivity of our last president.
In light of the milestone Trump just surpassed, which marks his first 100 days in office, the Associated Press wrote a (biased) report in reflection of how they feel about what he’s accomplished so far, bringing up the now infamous red button:
“A man accustomed to wealth and its trappings, Trump has embraced life in the Executive Mansion, often regaling guests with trivia about the historic decor,” the slanderous piece stated before alleging his abuse of authority what they backhandedly said next. “With the push of a red button placed on the Resolute Desk that presidents have used for decades, a White House butler soon arrived with a Coke for the president.” It was drawing attention to this single button used by presidents before him, including Barack Obama, that brought the liberals out in attack against our president and his soft drink service.
“When hosting the Associated Press at the oval office, Trump showed the reporters the red button, which sits in a rectangular wooden box. After pressing it a butler promptly arrived with a Coke for the president, the news wire service reported,” Business Insider reported. Rather than this being an abuse of power, it showed how neat the president found it who also showed clear appreciation for the service he received. It’s just a perk of being president, which pales in comparison to his predecessor’s gross overuse.
So easy liberals forget about the lap of luxury the entire Obama family, including the Barack’s mother-in-law live on the taxpayer’s expense that proves far more entitlement than a daily coke.
What if Trump mixes up The Red Coke Button with The Red Nuke button?

It shouldn’t be a shock to see that the president has a White House food service staff, since to most, this is common knowledge. Worse yet was the outrage over the fact that he even had a beverage on his desk in the Oval Office in the first place. It’s doubtful that these same complainers were anywhere near this mad over what Bill Clinton had on and under his desk when Monica Lewinsky was in the office.

Interestingly, the button box is mobile, which Barack Obama took full advantage of, having his butler at his beck and call wherever he should roam – as seen here in this picture at dinner with Nancy Pelosi. Given his company, you can bet that the button wasn’t used for colas. The pair probably tapped the red button for a steady flow of adult beverages, as Pelosi is known to have an affinity for.
For a Commander-in-Chief to accomplished more in his first 100 days than the prior leader he replaced did in two terms, it’s interesting that the Associated Press would even think to bring a button up. Perhaps this is just another tactic used to deflect from his clear accomplishments which they would never want to bring attention to. Barack had this button for eight years and likely used it frequently too. It’s no coincidence we are hearing about it now with Trump in the Oval Office.
