It seems the White House believes the Secret Service is sworn to protect not only the President's life, but also his fragile ego.
According to the Denver Post
, an internal Secret Service investigation has confirmed
that "White House staff" were the ones who ordered three attendees to be removed from a "town hall" event in Denver last year. The trio's only crime was disagreeing with the President, but the White House staffers called in the Secret Service to have them thrown out.
The agents responded -- although one can only imagine they did so grudgingly.
Last week, we learned
some administration staffers find it easier to simply pretend they're Secret Service. If you were charged with the noble duty of protecting the President's life, wouldn't you find this stuff insulting?
