Yet another would-be White House infiltrator has been apprehended by Secret Service agents, following in the footsteps of the 26-year-old man caught earlier this month near the south entrance to the executive residence.
The culprit this time was a 38-year-old woman from Washington state, who was nabbed easily when she was discovered hanging from the White House's outer fence. Apparently the woman's shoelaces had gotten snagged on the top of the wall as she ascended, leaving her helplessly inverted in mid-air until Secret Service agents came to her rescue.
Thursday on "Pat & Stu," the guys had a good laugh at the unfortunate woman's expense, and Pat Gray remarked on the recent uptick in attempted infiltrations of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
"Why is this happening all the time? We never used to hear stories — when [George] W. [Bush] was in office, I don't remember anybody trying to jump the White House fence," Pat said.
"Well, when you start having people who are so successful doing it, I guess it encourages more attempts," Stu Burguiere reasoned.
Stu also cited President Donald Trump's polarizing nature as motivation for citizens on the extreme left edge of the political spectrum to attempt to personally intervene in his governance.
"I don't think this is justified by the left, but they see him as Satan," Stu said.
