The faceless walls of the federal government

I realize this is just another sign of the Trump Administration's incompetence, but I for one am glad that we are (at least temporarily) ending the tradition of hanging the photo of the President and Vice President at every federal office. And I am not just saying that because the missing photos are Trump and Pence. Those smiling faces always creeped me out a little. It reminded me of the dictator's photo that adorns the walls of more oppressive countries I have visited. There is no reason to have our dear leader's visage surveying every office under his domain. We already know he is in charge. What point is there with having the President and Vice stare at us whenever we interact with the federal government?
