    Meet the guys who tape Trump's papers back together

    so all the stuff which should go untorn to an archive has to be taped - hopefully with archival tape - after trump's done with it. :facepalm:

    e2a: it's not with archival tape, it's with scotch tape which will be brown and brittle some years down the line :facepalm: :facepalm:

    Seriously? They only have one copy of the speeches he makes and the papers he reads?

    Being paid well enough - why don't they just photocopy stuff before they give it to him?

    Why don't they hand him photocopies or something instead? Surely that would be less work if nothing else.

    The future visitors researching in the archives will be interested in any marginal scribbling ...

    Iran used carpet weavers to re-assemble shredded CIA documents after 1979. They spent a few years on thousands of pages.

    If they let him have a PC he would just use it to look at porn

    I have done this before using shredded documents out of the target company/agencies/departments skips.

    It is very boring and never yielded any worthwhile results. I was trying to code something that would do it automatically ... never bothered finishing it though.

    I guess they want the ones the president has actually touched maybe :confused:

    But surely the guys putting Humpty Dumpty back together should have clearance? They need to know something about the documents they're reconstructing, at least.

    Plus, the Pentagon's just down the road. If need be they could move a secure photocopier from there into the WH.

    Wouldn't surprise me. For such an ostensibly (small-r) republican nation-state, they do seem to end up treating their Presidents a lot like bloody royalty.
