As I mentioned earlier today, most of the liberal media has been in freak-out mode ever since the President decided to emerge from his hospital suite at Walter Reed for a quick drive past the crowds of people who have assembled there to show their support for him. It was a pretty quick trip, with the masked president waving from inside of the armored SUV as he went for a spin around the block. This has led to accusations from the press ranging from claims that he was putting his Secret Security detail in danger to risking making his supporters sick and even that he was mentally unstable for deciding to do this.
It sounds like somebody at the White House saw enough of these reports that they felt some damage control needed to be done. With that in mind, a statement was released reassuring everyone that all of the required precautions were taken before the drive-by trip got underway. (NY Post)
President Trump’s drive-by salute to supporters outside Walter Reed hospital was cleared by his medical team “as safe,” the White House said late Sunday amid criticism from top doctors.
“Appropriate precautions were taken in the execution of this movement to protect the President and all those supporting it, including PPE,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said in a statement.
“The movement was cleared by the medical team as safe to do.”
