When the President of the United States makes a petty, underhanded political decision and it fails miserably, can he blame the men and women who are sworn to sacrifice their own lives to protect his?
Yes He Can.
The White House is now backing away from Obama’s lie that ending White House tours was the Secret Service’s call, but he can’t unsay it. And according to ex-Secret Service agent Dan Bongino, those men and women aren’t likely to forget it:
They’ll continue to do their jobs, despite this shameless insult to their integrity, because they’re professionals.
Unlike the man they’re sworn to protect.
