Imagine you are part of tRump's secret service

You are supposed to keep the president and his family safe. But does that mean keep him safe from himself? Do you tell him, "No more two scoops for you, Mr. president!" Do you knock the phone out of his hands before he can tweet his latest string of BS that will land him in hot water? Do you remind him to put on a jacket when it's cold outside so he doesn't get sick?

Obviously, Sekulow thinks the SS is a glorified nanny service, and tRump is fine going along with that. Just one of the many perks of being king and having everything funded by the American taxpayers.

1. What I'd be thinking is something like,

"Would I really have to take a bullet for this douche? This isn't what I signed up for."

4. Of course in reality that is exactly what he/she signed up for

And we should never want it any other way.

5. That's true, but there might be times that they think about it.

They are obligated to protect the president, even if he is a total douche, and they know that. Who knows what they might sometimes think, though?

7. Right. And there may have been agents whose politics were different from obamas

But if they had any doubt about fulfilling their duties they should have stepped down.

10. So what happens if he is shot at

and the SS agent does not dive in front of the bullet? How can anyone prove that he/she did not do all they were capable of?

I know this is the movie version of events, but I'm guessing that there are a lot of instances in which an agent could let something happen and claim innocence. This is just part of the reason why it's so stupid to try and blame the SS for Jr's screw up.

12. The job of the Secret Service is to keep the Admin officials safe from physical danger.

It's not their job to interfere with business meetings.

Gunman at congressional softball practice, they spring into action.

Senator on second unwisely tries to steal a base, not their problem.
