Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert came out with a clever way to figure out who left cocaine in the White House shortly after the Secret Service announced that the culprit is unlikely to be found, leading some to speculate that the culprit is just one the White House doesn’t want to name.
Rep. Boebert came out with her suggestion on Twitter, saying, “So let me get this straight, the White House is refusing to say whether the cocaine culprit will be arrested? Well, I think we should drug test EVERYONE, including Joe Biden, until we know who smuggled illegal drugs into the White House.”

Of course, numerous Biden Administration employees and visitors could have used drugs and test positive, making the test less useful for figuring out who left the cocaine around. But, at the very least, it would be interesting to find out what percentage of the executive branch tests positive for illegal narcotics.
KJP, when asked about the cocaine during the July 7th press briefing, gave a word salad answer that claimed there has been “irresponsible reporting” about the Biden family but that didn’t really give an answer about the cocaine.
In that word-salad response, she said, “So we’re not avoiding the question; that is not true. We’ve answered this question, litigated this question for the last two days exhaustively. You know, there has been some irresponsible reporting about the family, and — and so I got to call that out here. And I have been very clear. I was clear two days ago when talking about this over and over again, as I was being asked a question. As you know — and the media outlets reported this — the Biden family was not here. They were not here. They were at Camp David. They were not here Friday. They were not here Saturday. They were not here Sunday. They were not even here Monday. They came back on Tuesday. So to ask that question is actually incredibly irresponsible. And — and I’ll just leave it there.”
Jake Sullivan, when asked about the potential GOP investigation of the cocaine situation during the same press briefing, said, “So, first, I would refer to the Secret Service when it comes to questions of the security of the President. I won’t speak to that. Second, I would make a point about the Situation Room because I think there’s been a lot of questionable reporting on this. The Situation Room is not in use and has not been in use for months because it is currently under construction. We are using an alternate Situation Room in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. So the only people coming in and going out of the Sit Room in this period have been workers who are getting it ready to go. By the way, it’s on time and on schedule to be — to be back on station here in the not-too-distant future.”
This is just the latest in a long line of embarrassing incidents that have plagued Joe Biden and his White House, though given the slow news cycle has been one that has received an outsized amount of attention.
