The Absolutely ABSURD Reason Why the White House was Put on Lockdown

The Obama White House must be on edge to have been put on lockdown today for the most baffling and silly of reasons. This wasn’t a case of someone jumping the White House fence. They didn’t have someone with a weapon breach security. No one flew a drone over the White House grounds. No, it was nothing like that.

The White House was put on lockdown because of — wait for it — party balloons.

On Sunday morning, the White House was put on lockdown for what was initially reported by NBC News as “an unspecified reason.”

At least it only took around 10 minutes for the all-clear to be given since it was simply a case of party balloons that accidentally drifted over the White House grounds.

One person on Twitter used the moment to call out the Obama regime on their hypocrisy when it comes to protecting the area around the White House after a breach of the fence, by balloons no less, versus Obama’s refusal to address the dangerous and porous southern border.
