Major Breach as UK Security Allowed Protesting Paraglider to Fly Within Yards of Trump...

This was an appalling security breach that could have resulted in dozens killed and wounded–including President Trump.

Friday night soon after Trump arrived at his Trump Turnberry golf club in Scotland, a Greenpeace protester flying a motored paraglider with a large anti-Trump banner hanging below flew within yards overhead of Trump who was outside receiving guests, forcing him to race inside with his Secret Service detail.

Inexplicably, first U.K. security on the perimeter and then U.S. security on top and around the building allowed the paraglider to fly unmolested over Trump, members of his national security team, senior administration officials and dozens of guests assembled outside, and the building–and then allowed the flyer to escape!

I’m sure a notice to aviators was issued.

No excuse for this. Trump needs to unload on the Brits for their carelessness.

They need to be prepared for paragliders and DRONES and have preplanned ACTIONS to take. That action should be preapproved SHOOT TO KILL ORDERS.

“Negligent or deliberate, I wonder.”

Deliberate, since the paraglider was doing it as protest and he could have harmed president Trump. Major incident.

Just a disgusting lack of security. The freaking Secret Service just stood there watching this.

The only thing they did....told the president to run for his life. It’s utter madness that this happened.

I agree. We need to review our security measures so another incident like this never happens again.

Green Peace are the brits pal.

Give MSNBC something to talk about

= = = = = = = = = = =

They should be preparing a wake and funeral for him.

Kind of makes one think of telling the SS, you guys can hang around if you want but MY PERSONAL SECURITY DETAIL will be calling the shots and you are working for them.

Anyone that doesn’t like it can be billeted in Antarctica/Nome AK/Fargo ND etal in case I decide to visit there, you can ASSIST in setting it up.

You bet. And no hesitation! This paraglider was just another leftie protester. The next one could well be a bomb-carrying kamikaze.

It is a difficult choice. It is not as though President Trump had a fleet of aircraft, ready to intercept, at his command.

It appeared to me the paraglider never got within a two hundred yards of President Trump.

What is really shocking is that the pilot and glider got away.

Still, these types usually talk, so they may get caught yet.

Makes me think of W saying the first plane crash into the WTC was a bad pilot. It’s kind of too late once everyone is standing there picking their noses.
