Sinkhole Discovered Forming On White House Property
The White House now has a sinkhole issue. No, we aren’t talking about politicians who are sinking our country by taxing us to death (at least not this time). We are talking about an actual, real-life sinkhole that seems to be forming on the White House north lawn just outside the press briefing room.
I’d expect the mainstream media to run headlines such as “Trump administration places sinkhole under press corps” any day now.
Reporter Steve Herman has been giving updates and reports over the sinkhole, which might be some of the most accurate and useful news reporting to come out of the White House press corps in over a year.

“It was noticeably bigger between Sunday and Monday,” Herman also said. “It’s more than a foot long right now.”
Worse more, there seems to be a second sinkhole forming right by it.

A cover has been placed over the larger sinkhole, however, one has to assume that the White House has called for some sinkhole research and testing to be performed. Sinkholes are no joke and not an act of mother nature that even Washington elites can fight. You can read my entire what causes sinkholes guide for more information on how devastating these things can be.
The interesting thing is that man’s influence certainly plays a critical role in sinkhole formation. If water is being pumped beneath the ground, or the sediment has been moved or altered, one could safely assume that such activities are contributing factors. The White House likely has underground safe rooms, prepper rooms, and escape routes. And maybe they have more? We certainly wouldn’t know.
