Secret Service disaster

A president riding in an open car amid tall buildings downtown in a major city? Forget that, evidently it’s not nearly that difficult to assassinate a president today.

Now we learn our current president was recently at full risk of being shot at pointblank range while riding in an elevator!

Agent Clint Hill risked his life, jumping onto the back of a fast-moving car 50 years ago in an effort to save the life of the president. So I can only imagine his reaction upon learning of such incredible lapses in security detail taking place today!

It’s obvious the Secret Service must be fully reviewed and remade in view of this latest shocking lapse.
