4. His desk is too clean. Why isn't he doing more work? His desk should be a cluttered mess if
he was really getting things done!11!!1!

7. Well, if they're done, they wouldn't be on his desk

15. It looks like the one President Clinton used
President Clinton's oak desk was a gift to President Rutherford B. Hayes from Queen Victoria in 1880.
