A Toddler Managed To Squeeze Through The Fence At The White House

A toddler managed to make his way onto the White House lawn earlier by squeezing through the perimeter fence, catching the eyes of the gun toting guards in the area. A silly mistake or the newest weapon being utilized by terrorists in the War on Terror? That’s certainly something you might hear Michael Savage say. From USA Today:

The “fence baby” made his move around 8:10 p.m., as reporters waited to see if President Obama would make a statement about Iraq. Journalists spotted officers racing across the North Lawn.

Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan said of the child: “We were going to wait until he learned to talk to question him, but in lieu of that he got a timeout and was sent on way with parents.”

I think the only thing missing from this story is Sinbad, playing some sort of comedic supporting role. Maybe make this into a movie as a sequel to First Kid, with the original First Kid now the president and this baby playing the son he doesn’t know exists.

It’s all laughter and jokes right now, but that’s probably just to hide the reality. I’m sure this kid is going through something reminiscent of the video below from Lethal Weapon:

String him up and find out who told him to climb through the fence. No kid is that curious. Why is he carrying around a copy of Mein Kampf? Raid his nursery.
