Former Secret Service Agent Reviews Presidential Films, from 'Air Force One' to 'VEEP' | Vanity Fair

  • When I was a very small child about oh 5-7 years old I was in Vail Calarado with my family at a golf terminate and former President Ford was there my mom said she wanted his autograph so I grabbed her book and ran towards him and an agent tried to grab me but I got past him and to President Ford and said... My mom voted for you and she would like your autograph. My mom about had a heart attack 😂

  • One of my biggest gripes about “Air Force One” is that none of the secret service agents go for any headshots. Secret Service agents are supposed to be trained marksmen, they would have been trained as professional shooters to go for the head of their targets yet they uselessly empty their magazines at targets wearing bullet proof vets. If they had (as Thanos puts it) gone for the head the bad guys plan would have ended a lot sooner. Also I still can’t believe not a single agent was stationed outside the cockpit during the firefight.

  • imagine if the president likes to play airsoft, the secret services will go berserk on cheaters and they will be the only ones playing with replicas and real weapons at the same time, imagine gun checks to see if you brought a real gun or a replica or the invisible wall that is protecting the president, it will be super difficult to "kill" the president , its basically cheating

    • @KermitMahomes besides did u even watch this clip at all the guy just said, we do what president wants! read the following link if case u still have doubts : "" overall, this has never been occurred, however the secret service that is assigned for white house after trumps presidency is over is no longer obey him! it is by the law, they will escort trump out..... . one way or another. Trump’s post presidency benefits after removal by the Senate does so the Senate conducts a trial which is highly possible even after his presidency is finished! and he can no longer candidate to run presidency

      EuroTruckSimualtor.2EuroTruckSimualtor.24 dögum síðan
    • @EuroTruckSimualtor.2 The Secret Service does not obey the President. The President has no authority over the Secret Service, the agency is departmentalized due to the desperation of powers. The Secret Service is not just tasked to the President. Impeachment does not strip away Trump’s post presidency benefits only removal by the Senate does so unless the Senate conducts a trial which is very unlikely before his term ends Trump will leave with his benefits and Secret Service protection in tact. The Secret Service wouldn’t collide with each other so I’m assuming if he refuses to leave it would be federal officers/agents assigned to the white house or Biden could force the military to escort him out as Biden would have authority as Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces but I don’t think Trump is dumb enough to embarrass himself by refusing to leave he already said it would be an orderly transition so who knows.

      KermitMahomesKermitMahomes5 dögum síðan
    • @KermitMahomes sure by white house secret service is no longer operating under trump orders after his presidency is finished! however, the Democrats are looking for impeachment of Trump then no secret service nor medical assist for him for the rest of life is assured by homeland security, and it seems highly possible, So I don't see any possible solution for trump after huge embarrassment he did in the last weeks, He may still refuse to leave white house, but on the 20th of Jan, the secret service only obey Biden commands! by the law! Google, Facebook, twitter, has shut him down due rage encourage (it is terms of use not freedom of speech ! ). I think he is still smarter than rest of whitehouse presidents, he knew he has to leave, but the question is, is he in sanity of mind to leave peacefully ?
