Trump Makes Appearance in Man's New Bathroom Tile
See him?   (WTVR)

Slate offers kudos to a Virginia CBS affiliate for "breaking the scoop" of the Election 2016 campaign cycle: the story of a Midlothian man who says he sees Donald Trump in his bathroom tile. Per WTVR, Clayton Litten was perusing his new bathroom floor from his perch on the porcelain throne when he spotted what he says is a "one in a trillion" sighting—a "perfect" depiction of the GOP presumptive nominee within the tile's riveting Rorschach, standing with arms folded. "This cannot be. There's no way," Litten tells the station he said when his eyes fell upon this lavatory vision, which he confirmed with workers who were still toiling away on his bathroom remodel.

Litten, who's said to be suffering from incurable lung cancer, doesn't leave the house except for doctor visits, and he mainly corresponds with people via email, per the page set up in his name. He tells WTVR he used that email account to shoot off a pic of the tile to Trump's campaign in the hopes that he might snag a meeting with the candidate when he's in nearby Richmond Friday for a rally. He adds he's a Republican who, tile or no tile, intends to vote for Trump in November (Litten says he hasn't heard back yet). Meanwhile, the station is crowdsourcing opinions about the tile, tweeting an image of Litten's Trump and a poll asking if others see Donald, don't see him, or … see Hillary. (Slate also wants to know if you can spot the Donald in these other six photos.)
