Claim Your Signed Copy of Newt's New Book
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) displayed remarkable tone deafness earlier today.
The campaign arm of House Democrats complained that the Secret Service unexpectedly moved a scheduled transgender rally next to the White House.
They conveniently forgot to mention that a disturbed man set himself on fire in the immediate vicinity shortly beforehand.
The Daily Caller reports:
In a video posted on Twitter, a person engulfed in flames is seen near the White House, with Secret Service vehicles approaching the scene. The Secret Service sent out a tweet shortly after saying, “a man lit himself on fire” and that the National Park Service and U.S. Park Police are on the scene “rendering first aid.”
At approximately 12:20 p.m. a man lit himself on fire on the Ellipse near 15th and Constitution Ave., Secret Service personnel are on scene assisting @NatlParkService and @usparkpolicepio in rendering first aid.— U.S. Secret Service (@SecretService) May 29, 2019
Emergency dispatch reports the man suffered severe burns on 85 percent of his body. Paramedics rushed him to the hospital with "life-threatening" injuries.
First responders also reported a suspicious package on fire near the man.
