    The White House needs a wall......

    WASHINGTON - A California man arrested after jumping the White House fence and walking up to its grand south entrance carrying Mace was in federal court Monday amid continuing questions over how he got so close to the executive mansion without being challenged.
    President Donald Trump was in the residence at the time of the breach.

    There are plans for a taller fence, but it won't be completed for a couple years.

    According to this article

    http://downtrend.com/robertgehl/whit...-he-was-caught

    A California man carrying Mace roamed for nearly 17 minutes inside the secured White House perimeter before he was taken into custody March 10 near the South Portico entrance, the Secret Service acknowledged Friday
    I believe the head of the Secret Service is a guy named William Callahan. He was appointed as head of the Secret Service late in December 2016 - an Obama appointee.

    Based of the missing laptop and somebody not being detected for 17 minutes inside the White House perimeter, if I were Trump I would invite Callahan to the White House for a short "heart to heart" talk consisting of You're Fired !

    Not quite. Joseph Clancy was appointed Director of the Secret Service on 10/1/2014. He announced his retirement on 2/14/2017, and was replaced by William J. Callahan on 3/4/2017. The intrusion occurred on 3/10/2017, less than a week after Callahan received the appointment. That "heart to heart" should happen - if it hasn't already - but it should start with, "Secret Service security is a mess. Tell your plans to fix it."
