Journalist concerned by reporter pens missed Hillary’s rodeo

As Twitchy reported earlier, journalists in particular are giving very serious thought to the violent smack-down of a TIME photographer by a Secret Service agent providing security at a Donald Trump rally Monday, with some predicting that “real violence” at a Trump event is inevitable before this campaign cycle is finished.

After seeing the video, Nicholas Dawes of the Hindustan Times has some advice and questions for his American journalist friends.

For a distinguished and well-traveled journalist, Dawes had never heard of the press pen, so we’re assuming he missed this proud moment among his American journalist friends, on Independence Day, no less.

Why would the American press agree to be led around by young girls penning them in with some clothesline?

So what was the question again?

Doesn’t any of this news travel overseas? In case no one abroad has heard, Clinton has graduated from the rope to an extra level of Secret Service protection, as Fox News’ Ed Henry found out last month.

‘BURN!’ Is this zinger from Secret Service hearing the ‘quote of the day’?!/erykahjpuen/status/516985274178764800
No, seriously. Take a look at this quote from Rep. Lynch during Tuesday’s House Oversight Committee hearing with Secret Service director Julia Pierson about the deranged man breaking into the White House.

Rep. Lynch (D-MA) quite possibly has the quote of the day from the Secret Service hearing.
