Protect the first lady, Herb!
Blog Guy, tell me some inside Washington stuff. What if extremists get into the White House grounds and overpower the Secret Service? What’s the contingency plan?
I don’t think I should make that public.
Come on, just between us. Nobody reads this blog in the summer, anyway. I bet the plan involves jet packs and hidden trap doors….
No, that stuff was all written out of the budget. Now the whole plan is camouflage.
Yes. The Obamas have been trained to hide behind trees and shrubs in the event of an attack, and they even carry bundles of foliage when they cross an open area, as you can see Michelle Obama doing here.
She sure doesn’t look very happy about it.
She’s the first lady of the United States and she has to walk everywhere with dirty bundles of herbs. Would YOU be happy?
