A Toddler Squeezed Through the White House Fence Resulting in This Perfect Statement From the Secret Service

A toddler managed to squeeze through the White House fence Thursday evening, briefly placing the lawn on lockdown — and resulting in one perfect statement from the Secret Service.

“We were going to wait until he learned to talk to question him, but in lieu of that he got a timeout and was sent on way with parents,” said Edwin Donovan, spokesman for the Secret Service.

The young child managed to breach the perimeter around 8:10 p.m. ET, according to the White House pool report.
