"U.S. Secret Service

@SecretService

Update: the investigation into a USSS officer involved shooting is ongoing. A male subject and a USSS officer were both transported to a local hospital. At no time during this incident was the White House complex breached or were any protectees in danger."

So an officer appears to have been shot by the obviously armed assailant.

Probably some left-wing nutter.

It is not difficult for a nutter to get hold of a gun in America and unless we implement strict gun controls such incidents will keep happening.

For the moment, politics don't matter. US gun laws don't matter. What matters is this:

No politician in the United States of America should be driven from his or her office by violence or the threat of violence.

Probably some left-wing nutter.

Or could be an NRA, gun loving conservative who's just angry his eggs were over cooked.

LWNs have more sense than to make a martyr out of an impeached nut-job who is, metaphorically speaking, shooting himself in the head every day and who one day will just go away "like a miracle", which is the peaceful outcome the majority of the world prays daily for.

Precisely why we have the secret service, thank God for them.

And before long the assailant will be identified.

But go on and continue with your hate-filled anti-Trump rantings.

OK.

But it's not really hate filled as much as anti-Trump because it isn't based on hate, as his words often are, it's based on reason.

Hate to say it but Trump has been encouraging hatred (which usually leads to violence) as well as bullying and intimidation.

Unless you have a secret service escort for each of the 328 million American residents , it is useless.

trump might hide in his bunker, but the rest of Americans need protection too!!!

Precisely, and that’s why we have the second amendment.

Oh, is that why? I thought it was something silly, like it was written in 1791.

Can't wait until he gets ushered out of the White House entirely.

Try keeping up.

They need protection from the 2nd amendment nutters!!

Unfortunately the secret service still needs to provide escort to him and his klan even after he gets kicked out.

Unless he flees to Russia.

With all the investigations around him, that is a real possibility !!!

Americans and democracy need stronger protection from Trump and his fascist scum goons. And his gun idolatry nutter sheep too.

Do you mean strict gun controls like in Chicago? FYI, it's a lot easier and cheaper to get an illegal firearm than to go through the legal process (as LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS do).

What democracy? Liberals are dismantling it. If Trump were a fascist, he would do what the Democrats in Washington and Oregon are doing, let people run wild. We’re now at what 73 days of this? Wow!

Uh yeah, that is exactly what fascists do. Let people run wild.

Beggars beleive how the mods allow the contiuous non stop HATE Speech from the same bunch of people on here towards one particular person, I could go on and name them if the mods cant figure it out, but come on if it was Hatred towards their favorite group deletions and bannings would have been going on long ago.

Really? People are saying mean things about Trump and your response is to go crying to the mods to make it all go away?

To quote Trump: "Pathetic".

This is pure fabrication.

It is the corrupt regime that supporters prop up which is intent on serving itself, breaking international treaties and killing its people with misinformation about the virus.

I guess with the Trump following, everything they don't grasp or comprehend is "liberal".

Bunker inspection again???? LOL

Washington D.C., NYC, Chicago, LA and other Democrat-run cities are experiencing sharp spikes in violent crime.

Can't wait until he gets ushered out of the White House entirely.

He won't be ushered out, he'll walk out on Jan. 20, 2025 and hand over the presidency to the next Republican president.

It might not have had anything to do with me," Trump added, saying the incident took place "on the outside" of the White House perimeter.

For once I agree with Trump. Just wait until more is known.
