This story is completely crazy to me, and very very worrying. Whatever I think of Obama, the very last thing I want to see is him harmed, or God forbid, assassinated; he’s the American president, for bad or worse, after all.
Yet, a Secret Service who–obviously on Obama’s paranoid orders–had all cutlery removed from Latinas/os at a fund raiser for fear someone would stab with a salad fork the man begging them for money, who refused to eat the possibly-poisoned food at a GOP function because no royal tester was present, who insist that Marines who appear with their Commander in Chief be disarmed, that same Secret Service lets someone they’ve not vetted, someone who turns out to be a schizophrenic and not even an actual sign-language interpreter within inches of their charge?
Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot.
