Jared and Ivanka's Secret Service detail reportedly had to use Obama's bathroom because the couple wouldn't let the officers use theirs
  • Secret Service agents assigned to Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner aren't permitted to use any of the six bathrooms in the couple's Washington, DC, home in the wealthy neighborhood of Kalorama, according to The Washington Post.
  • The agents were forced to use port-a-potties and even the restrooms in the homes of Vice President Mike Pence and former President Barack Obama.

Ivanka and Kushner, President Donald Trump's daughter and son-in-law, live in DC's affluent neighborhood of Kalorama, which also is home to Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Obama, and other well-known names.

The Secret Service eventually came to a more permanent and comfortable solution for the agents — on the taxpayer's dime. The Post reported that taxpayers have spent a whopping $100,000 since 2017 — around $3,000 a month — on a basement studio apartment near the Kushner residence with a bathroom for agents to use.

"It's the first time I ever heard of a Secret Service detail having to go to these extremes to find a bathroom," one law enforcement official told the Post.
