Trump wanted multiple TVs in White House bedroom: ‘In the first days, he ordered two television screens in addition to the one already there, and a lock on the door, precipitating a brief standoff with the Secret Service, who insisted they have access to the room. He reprimanded the housekeeping staff for picking up his shirt from the floor: “If my shirt is on the floor, it’s because I want it on the floor.” Then he imposed a set of new rules: Nobody touch anything, especially not his toothbrush.'”

HORSEBACK RIDING CAT OF THE DAY. Louis. “Horse trainer Emma Massingale has a pony named Comet and a cat named Louis. They are good friends who go on adventures together. Louis doesn’t need a saddle when he goes horseback riding; a horse blanket will do, but a saddle will do fine if that’s what’s on the horse. It’s not like he could get his feet into the stirrups!
