More Details Emerge on White House Shooting, Gunman Taken Down

    During a presidential press conference on Monday the president was quickly removed by the Secret Service from the press briefing room to the Oval Office. He returned a short time later and continued the press conference. What was the reason for his abrupt removal? A shooting at the White House gates.

    Fox News reported, "The Secret Service provided details of the shooting in a tweet late Monday. A 51-year-old male allegedly approached a Uniformed Division officer who was standing at his post on the corner of 17th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue near the White House. The man told the agent he had a weapon and, while he approached, took off in a sprint and 'in a drawing motion, withdrew an object from his clothing,' the statement read."

    The Secret Service statement continued to read, "The suspect then crouched into a shooter's stance as if about to fire a weapon. At that point, the agent fired his weapon and struck the subject in the torso."

    "At no time during this incident was the White House complex breached or were any protectees in danger," the Secret Service said. The investigation is ongoing. On social media, as the news broke, leftist trolls began to applaud in hopes the president had been injured. That is the level of mature political discourse apparent in today's leftist movement made up of childish anarchists and Bolshevik toddlers.

    The Secret Service has not said whether the as of yet unidentified man was armed. It added that "both the officer and the suspect were then taken to hospital," and that "at no time during this incident was the White House complex breached."

    After the president and his staff left the press briefing room, doors were locked with reporters inside. When the president returned nine minutes later, he said: "Law enforcement shot someone, it seems to be the suspect...There was a shooting outside of the White House and it seems to be very well under control. I'd like to thank the Secret Service for doing their always quick and very effective work. I feel very safe with the Secret Service. They're fantastic people. They're the best of the best. They're highly trained. They just wanted me to step aside for a little while just to make sure that everything was clear outside."

    As more information became available it emerged that the gunman approached the White House gates from the vicinity of Lafayette Park, across the street from the executive mansion.

    At all hours every day of the week protesters can be found at Lafayette Park expressing their eccentric views on a variety of subjects. It's almost become a tourist attraction, as one is as likely there to hear the Queen of England is a lizard in human form who runs an international drug and pedophile ring than one is likely to hear a criticism of the current White House incumbent, whoever that might be at any given time.
