'Don's Johns' port-a-potties carefully censored ahead of inauguration

Trump University. Trump Airlines. Trump Vodka. Trump Steaks. It sometimes seems as if the incoming president-elect has dabbled in nearly every product imaginable.

The notable exception? Port-a-potties.

That makes this next part a bit awkward: Washington, D.C.'s top port-a-potty provider is a company called Don's Johns. This is not the same Don as Donald Trump, of course — the eponymous Don is a Mr. Rainwater, who established the septic company with his wife, Thelma, in 1964 — but apparently somebody wants there to be no confusion. "Workers have placed blue tape over the company name on dozens of portable restrooms installed near the Capitol for the inauguration," The Associated Press reports. "The company's name is clearly visible upon close inspection, but is blocked for a wide-angle view by a TV or still camera."

The president-elect's inaugural committee did not have a comment for AP.
