Scary moment at the White House Monday, as President Trump started a press conference, then was immediately escorted out by the Secret Service. Trump soon returned and explained that shots had been fired near the White House, but not on the grounds. Someone had confronted a Secret Service agent, and there was a reported exchange of fire. Both the assailant and the officer were taken to the hospital but their injuries are not life-threatening. A big Huck’s Hero salute to that Secret Service agent.
The group behind “Occupy Wall Street” is planning a 50-day “siege” of the White House until Election Day, and threatening to fill Lafayette Square with tens of thousands of Antifa-type anti-capitalist radicals hashtagging “#revolution” at each other on their Apple iPhones. If they are as smelly and lawless as the previous OWS losers, it could be an excellent incentive to drive Trump voters to the polls. In the meantime, I’m glad to see that the Secret Service is on the job and ready and willing to take whatever measures are necessary to protect the President, his family and the White House.
