The Oval Office has a Secret Service call box on the president’s desk. Reportedly Lyndon Johnson had it installed.
The media made a big deal of saying it was President Trump’s Diet Coke button and that Biden had ordered it removed. But you can see it on the Resolute Desk in this video of Biden’s Press Secretary in the Oval Office (Biden doesn’t appear in the video). She didn’t gain access to the Oval Office until January 20. If Biden really has a Press Secretary and she’s really in the White House, there is still a call box on the Oval Office desk.
In a few minutes of clicking around, I found photos of the call box on the desks of Presidents Clinton, W. Bush, Obama and Trump.
So there’s nothing Trumpy about the call box. There are many photographs of the call boxes in other White House locations as well, including the cabinet room and the president’s dining room.
The one place you DON’T see the Secret Service call box is on the desk where Biden signs his Executive Orders on inauguration day. I’ve got a collection of photos of Biden at that desk from every angle. Where is the Secret Service call box?
We’re told Biden flew a particular private jet (we know its call sign) to DC the day before the inauguration. We can track that jet from Van Nuys, CA to Wilmington on the 18th, then from Wilmington to DC on the 19th.
If Biden was on that jet and in DC on January 20 for the inauguration, why didn’t he use the real Oval Office to sign those orders? If he didn’t fly to DC on January 19th, why did the media make the big fuss over the private jet?

Biden’s handlers get word that they screwed up on the stage set props and put out their talking point.
Around 9 pm on January 21, the media starts reporting Biden ordered the call box removed because it’s stupid and Trumpy. As usual, 100% of them use the fake talking point.
