Trump briefly taken to underground bunker during Friday's White House protests

Source: cnn

(CNN)As protesters gathered outside the White House Friday night in Washington, DC, President Donald Trump was briefly taken to the underground bunker for a period of time, according to a White House official and a law enforcement source.

The President was there for a little under an hour before being brought upstairs. It's unclear if first lady Melania Trump and Barron Trump were also taken down with him.
Trump has repeatedly praised the Secret Service for its handling of the protests outside the White House Friday night in the wake of George Floyd's death last week in Minneapolis.
The New York Times first reported Trump was taken to the presidential bunker.

It makes him feel so self important. Pissing all of us off with his unrelenting tweets, and then running and hiding behind the secret service agent's skirts...........

I have never felt more sorry for the Secret Service agents, at least the ones that aren't bigotted Trumphumpers if there are any.....
Could you imagine those poor guys being coached into "taking a bullet" for this guy? At this point, they have to be severely conflicted

17. That's our dear leader alright

Reminds me of a well-known anecdote about Idi Amin (the former head of state whom Trump arguably most resembles).

When the Israeli Defense Forces famously stormed the airport at Entebbe in 1976, to free the mostly Jewish passengers held hostage there, Amin was in bed (in a threesome, it was said).

When an adjutant came in to inform him of the incident, he reportedly hid in a closet - for fear that it was actually a coup in progress.

Nah, the Secret Service guys are too smart. Trump may not be able to figure out how to beat a wall, but the Secret Service agents would breach it in no time.

Nothing can be trusted from this administration.

This information was planted to the media to feed his narrative on the rioting he’s fomenting and the extreme use of force he’s advocating for.

Just more theatrics for his ego and entice the Boogaloos.

Yup, engaging with protesters.

On another note, I would strongly suggest that the protesters don't breach the fence around the WH because the Secret Service would use lethal force. If just a couple of protesters entered the grounds, they would be arrested. If the Secret Service felt overwhelmed it would be a bloodbath.
