Marino on Trump’s Motorcade Stunt: The Secret Service Doesn’t Have Unlimited Resource

‘The medical staff consulted with the Secret Service, who basically said, listen, we can get this done’

RUSH EXCERPT:

MARINO: “That’s a great question. This is not the first time that Politics meets the Secret Service mission here. Typically the Secret Service will offer a counsel when there’s an overwhelming outside threat of the overall safety and security of the president. In this situation with Covid-19, it’s more medical consultation. In terms of the people I spoke to, the way the situation involved, the medical staff consulted with the Secret Service, who basically said, listen, we can get this done, there’s no overwhelming outside threat in terms of why we can’t take the president in the car, so they did what they were asked. You know, at any point in time you are serving as counsel to the president.”
