In the department of #DUH, Secret Service chief better resign. You have ONE job. And instead we got people shooting at the White House, riding elevators while armed with POTUS, and jumping fences / running around the White House with knives and whatnot. Hell ADT does a better job. Somebody needs to go in there, shake shit up, pay these people whatever it takes. Get B613 on the case because The Republic is at stake. You are not guarding a building or a family. You are protecting the executive branch of the United States of America. Respect the game.   High-res
