The Secret Service has had its issues recently.
Last week, a man with mace managed to hop the fence and get onto the ground before being arrested.
Then, former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino criticized the coverage, saying that the protection didn’t appear to be adequate for President Donald Trump.
Not sure what was going on with this next story, but it comes under the heading, “What were they thinking?”
From Daily Mail:
Two Secret Service officers are being investigated for allegedly taking a picture with Donald Trump’s grandson while he was sleeping.
The alleged incident took place last weekend while the agents were driving eight-year-old Donald Trump III from the family estate in Westchester, New York, back into Manhattan, Mother Jones reports.
Trump III, Donald Jr and Vanessa Trump’s son, woke up as the agents were snapping selfies and was ‘freaked out’.
If a little boy wakes up and sees these guys taking pictures of him, he’s likely to be a bit startled.
He told his mother, who told his father, who complained.
The Secret Service said they would be reviewing the matter in order to ensure that proper procedures were followed, but asked people not to jump to any conclusions.
The Secret Service made it clear that they in general had a good relationship with the first family and President Donald Trump and that this was an isolated incident.
When you have a protectee, especially a child, you have a responsibility to do your job.
It isn’t about taking pictures for whatever reason you may want to take them.
Just a little creepy…
