Yesterday, the House Judiciary Committee released a report that, according to The Hill. outlined the “constitutional grounds for the impeachment of President Trump.” An indication of how fair and nonpartisan the report is can be found in the fact that it was “written by the committee’s majority staff and describes impeachment as ‘the Constitution’s final answer to a President who mistakes himself for a monarch.'”
As the committee moves forward this coming week with evidence of Donald Trump’s monarchical behavior, they may want to take note of a previously undocumented example reported on Thursday by CBS White Correspondent Mark Knoller, who tweeted that Trump “gets bigger salt-and-pepper shakers than anyone else at the table.”

This could be the biggest bombshell since the revelation by Time magazine in 2017 that Trump gets two scoops of ice cream with his pie to everyone else’s single scoop. The following year, The Hill unearthed another example of the imperial side of the president’s nature, writing that he “reportedly replaced White House furniture that first lady Melania Trump had picked out in favor of items he preferred before she moved in.” Oh, the humanity!
Now this. Knoller provides a single photograph as evidence of Trump’s condiment abuse, but it turns out there is more — much more. Business Insider, with its tongue planted firmly inside its cheek, followed up on Knoller’s “exposé” the next day with an additional shot of Trump’s outsize salt and pepper shakers along with photos that showed his predecessors — Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton — all practiced “condiment equality.”
