Get Rid Of The Red Buttons

Cartoon by Adam Zyglis (@adamzyglis).

According to Wikipedia, the Diet Coke button was a red call button that Donald Trump had placed on the Resolute desk in the Oval Office of the White House during his administration. When pressed, a signal would summon a butler who would bring a Diet Coke on a silver platter. Donald Trump stated to one reporter that “everyone thinks it is [the nuclear button]“. Trump reportedly drank 12 Diet Cokes per day.

In the first few days of Joe Biden’s presidency, he had the button removed.
