Two Biden Secret Service members got drunk and picked a fight with a cab driver in South Korea
In an international incident that can only be described as an embarrassment, two of Biden’s Secret Service members got drunk and picked a fight with a taxicab driver in South Korea. The altercation required local law enforcement to get involved.
The Secret Service issued the following statement about the altercation:
“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations. The individuals will be immediately returned back to their post of duty and placed on administrative leave. There was no impact to the upcoming trip. We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards. Given this is an active administrative personnel matter, we are not in a position to comment further.”
This is neither the only embarrassment suffered by the Secret Service, nor the only embarrassment suffered in South Korea due to Biden and his administration.
Additionally, the Secret Service has been involved in a number of drunken scandals over the past decade, ranging from soliciting prostitutes while on active duty in 2012 to drunkenly driving a government vehicle through a secure White House area in 2015.
This incident, however, is far more potent. Picking a fight with a civilian in foreign nation which we are attempting to strengthen ties with is extremely irresponsible.
Our efforts under President Trump to strengthen ties with South Korea and Japan as a bulwark against North Korea and China are swiftly being undermined by incompetence happening under Biden’s watch.
