White House intruder Omar J. Gonzalez, who jumped the fence and ran for the First Family’s residence, made it further inside than previously suspected, a congressional official told the New York Times.
Previous reports claimed that Gonzalez was stopped just inside the White House door, which would have been bad enough. Apparently, though, Gonzalez, who was carrying a knife, ran through the North Portico, overpowered a Secret Service agent, got through the East Room, and made it all the way to Green Room before he was stopped.
Reportedly stopped, that is. I feel like tomorrow they’ll admit that he’s still in there, roaming the halls, knifing staffers and drafting legislation. Secret Service: Get your shit together.
