Protesters' breach of temporary fences near White House complex prompted Secret Service to move Trum

Source: Washington Post

President Trump was rushed to a secure bunker in the White House on Friday evening after a group of protesters hopped over temporary barricades set up near the Treasury Department grounds, according to arrest records and people familiar with the incident.

The security move came after multiple people crossed over fences that had been erected to create a larger barrier around the White House complex around 7 p.m.

...

The events contradict the president’s claim Wednesday that he went to the bunker simply to inspect the secure location.

Two of the people who were arrested said they were stunned by the idea that their actions prompted the abrupt relocation of the president.

“I didn’t even realize what I did was illegal,” said one of the protesters, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the pending charges. “I stepped over a barricade. I never got onto the Treasury grounds or White House grounds.”

2. Of course, it's Secret Service's job,

foolish for ANYONE to make a fuss about this, and then he LIES.

9. If true, going in the bunker was the sensible thing to do.

Working from the premise that it's good for the country to have its leader be safe*, it's only prudent for him to go along with what the Secret Service needs to do for his protection. I can't imagine any leader being thrilled to say "I went in the bunker for my own protection", but this man is so consumed by his raging feelings of inadequacy that he can't bear to admit doing anything at all for self-protection, be it wearing a facemask during a pandemic or even protective glasses to view an eclipse. The implicit admission of vulnerability would be too much for his toxic masculinity to withstand.

*Not here to debate if we've come to the point where this almost begins to be arguable, if the man is intentionally trying to misuse his command of the military to incite an insurrection.

11. He HAD to go along,

they would have carried him off if he attempted to refuse.

No need to say ANYTHING, but he can't keep his mouth shut.

15. Thus the laughable "inspecting the bunker" BS

Heaven forbid he just ignore the "bunker chicken" taunts like an adult would. The threat to his fragile self image of projected invulnerability cannot be allowed to stand unchallenged, no matter how counterproductive the response is.

21. Or he could have said...

My son was sent to the bunker and since I can work from there, I went with him to reassure him while monitoring the situation. Simple. Would make people go aw, good dad.

He lies when lying is unnecessary.

6. Of course he has

I don't pay him any attention and any time he comes on TV I change the channel, but in the few short minutes that I have seen him, I've never seen a person of color on his security detail. I may be wrong and simply missed it but I doubt it. Hard to call someone an N-word when someone of color is in the room and I'm sure he's used the term many times.

You dont fucking invade the White House grounds even if an asshole resides there.

8. The arrestee said: "I stepped over a barricade. I never got onto the Treasury grounds or White House

grounds."

That implies that they knew not to because they knew they weren't on the grounds.
