Former Hillary Secret Service Agent: She Stole Our ‘Scooby Doo’ Van Joke

Patrick Howley Political Reporter

A former Secret Service agent who detailed Hillary Clinton said that Clinton stole the “Scooby Doo” name for her campaign van from Secret Service agents.

The Hillary campaign’s road trip on what she calls her “Scooby” van makes her seem super-relatable, according to the mainstream media.

But Clinton stole the “Scooby” line from her old Secret Service agents.

“She had detail when she was running for senate in New York,” former agent Dan Bongino told The Daily Caller, noting that he served on the detail. “That’s what we used to call the van. It was brown and it looked like the mystery van. So we the Secret Service guys were the ones who used to call it Scooby Doo.”

“This is all retreaded stuff from her Senate campaign in New York. This idea of an impromptu road trip is nothing but recycled stuff from her Senate campaign.”

“It was well known, and I don’t do Kitty Kelly-type stuff,” Bongino added. “They can’t even invent a nickname without stealing it from someone else. The point is, they put it out there like it was some kind of extemporaneous thought, and even that was made up. It was completely disingenuous.”

Bongino even wrote about the “Scooby” line’s origins in his book, which was published in 2013.

“they selected a two-tone brown Ford conversion van, which was far different from the fleet of black limousines the president and his family typically use,” Bongino wrote in his book ‘Life Inside the Bubble.’ “Within the Secret Service, the vehicle became affectionately known as ‘Scooby-Doo’ due to its brown color. Looking back on the decision to select that dull brown van, I view it as a stroke of political genius.”
