The video was released after White House Correspondents’ Association president Tamara Keith announced that the White House Press Room would undergo an official renovation in the next two month.
The press room is crowded and the furniture is falling apart. She explained that the seats in the briefing room are sticky. The room is affectionately called “the lavateria”, which is a combo bathroom and lunch room. The last time this room was updated was during George W. Bush’s presidency.
Prior to demolition, Keith turned to the Scott siblings, 45, for a consultation — setting up the segment edited to appear as an episode of the duo’s popular HGTV series.
Drew and Scott described the White House as “a bit fixer-upper to put it politely,” saying they were eager to refresh the White House’s press area. Drew said, “This place has a serious state of disrepair.” “It’s dirty, it’s dingy, it’s moldy. It’s an s— hole!

Their vision at first seemed to be a sure-fire hit. “We’re proposing replacing all furniture in the White House workplace,” the brothers said. “New cabinets, new flooring, new lighting — everything to give it a new modern, positive vibe. It’s simple, tasteful and affordable.”
The Property Brothers then went off track, pitching some other unique ideas that would, as Jonathan said, “turn White House into White House”. Home.”
The plan was to “raze” the West Wing to its foundations and remove “all the ugly offices” in order to create “one large, sleek room.” Additionally, the duo hoped to “bulldoze the rose garden, lose the west colonnade and transform the Oval Office into a Dave & Buster’s.”
The idea was to hang “tasteful narcissism” of former Presidents on the wall.
The White House officials had just ended their virtual session when the brothers gave each other high fives and said, “Nailed it.”

When someone unexpected appeared on screen Martha Stewart!
Landrieu called Martha Stewart for help after the Scotts’ failed meeting. Jean-Pierre had previously told Drew that he wanted to “hire Martha Stewart but she would have built a lake with 24 swans.”
“I knew you’d come crawling back,” Stewart, 81, joked. They always do.

Since 1921, the annual correspondent’s meal has been attended by high-ranking officials of government including the President and First Lady.
However, under President Donald Trump this tradition changed. Trump, in the first 3 years of his tenure, snubbed this gathering and told reporters that it was too negative.
The White House started to avoid the event in 2018 after Michelle Wolf took over as emcee. As comedians have done before, she mocked D.C. actors including former Trump spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Biden embraced it, even though 2020 and the 2021 WHCA installments had to be canceled because of the COVID-19 epidemic.
This year the first lady and president will be in attendance. Jill BidenVice President Kamala Harris Second gentleman Doug Emhoff all attended the dinner — making it the first time each of the four key figures in an administration have been present at the event since 2016, when the Obamas and Bidens both attended. The president, vice-president and their spouses attended the event in 2006 and 2009.
