We've got a tiny insurrectionist on the North Lawn!!!




Yes, you read that correctly: A toddler breached the White House security fence on Tuesday and it's the best little bit of news I've come across all year.

A curious toddler on Tuesday earned the title of one of the tiniest White House intruders after he squeezed through the metal fencing on the north side of the executive mansion.

U.S. Secret Service Uniformed Division officers, who are responsible for security at the White House, walked across the North Lawn to retrieve the tot and reunite him with his parents on Pennsylvania Avenue. Access to the complex was briefly restricted while officers conducted the reunification. Officers briefly questioned the parents before allowing them to continue on their way.


How would you like to be the parents in this situation?

Like, how embarrassing!!

Kid's barely walking and he's trespassing on the White House Lawn.

Seriously though, you think the little guy lost his binky and breached the gate to retrieve it? Maybe a Goldfish or something?

I don't know.

Possibly he saw the Buffalo Guy on TV one time and wanted his own fifteen minutes of fame?

Well, he's getting it here!

Who knows if he'll remember it though.

You gotta love this reporting:

Secret Service spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said officers "encountered a curious young visitor along the White House north fence line who briefly entered White House grounds."

"The White House security systems instantly triggered Secret Service officers and the toddler and parents were quickly reunited," he said in a statement.

You'll get 'em next time, young man!
