Well, on Thanksgiving, your White House correspondent was strolling by the White House and ran into this:
Someone had jumped the White House fence, I found out. The front of the White House – the north side – was on lockdown. Hazmat trucks were brought in. And these guys above had their fingers on the triggers of their weapons in case the kooky fence jumper was just the vanguard of a far more aggressive effort to ruin the Obamas’ Thanksgiving.
Turned out not.
According to the Washington Post, 22-year-old Joseph Caputo of Stamford, Connecticut, scaled the north fence on and gained access to the north grounds but was immediately arrested. Caputo was charged with unlawful entry.
