Secret Service Responds to Threat at White House: Yoga Mat Involved

President Donald Trump’s polarizing presence has created new and unique challenges for the Secret Service agents who have been sworn to protect him.

This problematic targeting of the Commander in Chief comes as no surprise, as the liberal “resistance” to President Trump has grown wildly emboldened by their leftist leadership and the irresponsibly biased mainstream media.

From the onset of Trump’s bid for the White House there have been detractors and would-be attackers lining up to take a shot, literal or otherwise, at the 45th President of the United States.  During one particularly eerie moment in Las Vegas, a Trump campaign rally was shocked after a young man, who later admitted his intent to shoot Trump, wrestled with a police officer for control of his service weapon.  The incident was not widely reported, due in no small part to the leftist media’s indifference to the idea of the soon to be President’s death.

Then, celebrities got in on the act, with Snoop Dogg and Kathy Griffin both participating in mock executions of the Commander in Chief, and Johnny Depp making an unacceptable “joke” about he and Lee Harvey Oswald both being actors who could kill a President.

Now, a bizarre incident has occurred at the White House, and the Secret Service is on the case.

“The U.S. Secret Service reported an incident at the north side of the White House Monday morning just as President Trump and first lady Melania Trump were expected to return to the property from the Pentagon.

“‘Secret Service agent with TV pool says the White House lockdown was caused by someone who threw a sign and yoga mat over the fence,’ NBC reporter Peter Alexander tweeted.

 “Minutes earlier, the Secret Service reported that pedestrians were being blocked from Pennsylvania Avenue while the incident was being investigated.

“‘Uniformed Division responding to an incident at the north fence line, along Penn. Ave. Area is closed to pedestrian traffic,’ the Secret Service tweeted around 10:30 a.m. Washington time.

“Two people were taken into custody for ‘throwing unknown objects’ over the fence, the agency later added. The D.C. Fire and Police Departments both responded to the scene.”

The incident, which surely ranks as one of the stranger incidents of Secret Service response, comes as much of Washington D.C. is solemnly observing the 16th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks.
