Washington -- The coal heating project started in 2008 with Cheney and Bush, Trump promises to bring not just the one but several coal furnaces on line to heat the entire White House.
Our original story from November of 2008:
Washington, DC-- President Bush, with a month left for major remodeling,
decided to go with a plan by Dick Cheney and Senator McCain to convert the
White House heating system to coal.
"We are doing this for security and energy
independence reasons," noted Bush.
The three politicians will be helping remove the
old heaters, using dangerous and flammable natural gas, along with five hired
construction workers and heating specialist.
"Eventually, we can convert to radiators, but
for now we will use coal to heat the private quarters of President Obama and
all the water in the White House," explained Bush, reading from an index
card. They found the plans at Hearth.com and immediately set to work without
building permits. "The President does not need a building permit on White
House grounds," explained Cheney.
Senator McCain has arranged for free coal from
West Virginia for the next 50 years, with the White House only paying for
"President Obama can install his own solar
panels if he wants to save on the hot water bill in spring and fall. We don't
do any of that stuff, as we have unlimited coal in this country," added
