Joe Biden Had a 4-Letter-Word Reaction to Finding Trump’s ‘Toys’ In the White House

The new book “Peril”, by the Washington Post’s Bob Woodward and Robert Costa which was released on Tuesday, contains headline-making reporting on the final days of the Trump administration. But the co-authors also describe the mood of Trump’s successor upon settling into the official residence of U.S. presidents.

When President Joe Biden moved into the White House in January, he found his new home somewhat cold with unusual remnants of Donald Trump’s residency. “Trump’s existence permeated the White House,” the authors write.

Among other Trump-specific amenities, President Biden reacted to a giant video screen where Trump used to practice his golf game, projecting virtual versions of the world’s most famous courses onto the wall.

“What a f*cking a–hole,” President Biden said as he surveyed the former guy’s toys, according to the book.

The brand-new President reportedly referred to the White House as “the tomb,” Woodward and Costa write, adding that safety precautions in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 meant that it was not possible to hold social events. Like most grandparents, they wrote, Biden preferred “relaxing with the grandkids back in Delaware.”

“Peril” also offers new details of the months after the transition as President Biden got to work responding to the coronavirus pandemic, deliberating plans to withdraw from Afghanistan, and collaborating with a new Congress on ways to enact his agenda. The president and his advisers were also reluctant to say the “T-word” and call the former guy by his name, the authors write.
