Lib journo proud of breaching Trump’s security at the NRA forum gets Secret Service invite

One progressive journalist demonstrated Friday that she had either never heard or that she failed to comprehend the expression, “play stupid games, win stupid prizes.”

Lauren Windsor may fancy herself a leftwing iteration of Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe, whom she endeavored to “expose” for investigative reporting against Democracy Partners, but the self-styled patriot may be learning a hard lesson this week in lines that aren’t meant to be crossed.

In her effort to dunk on conservatives attending the National Rifle Association convention in Houston, Texas, the only thing she ended up exposing was herself as a plausible threat to former President Donald Trump.

Windsor explained Saturday that she had a previously unscheduled meeting with the United States Secret Service because of a certain tweet she had published on Saturday.

“UPDATE: I just got a call from US Secret Service and have an upcoming rendezvous with them this week re my Ted Cruz tweet pic from inside the NRA forum,” she wrote adding, “stay tuned.”

What Windsor glossed over in her update was the severity of what she had claimed to accomplish in gaining entry to the convention in the first place.

In trying to prove a point that Republican calls for stricter security measures at schools following the tragedy at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas would not matter, she detailed, “Ted Cruz wants every school in America to operate [with] a single point of entry every day. Well, the [NRA] & Secret Service couldn’t do it for *one* afternoon to protect Trump. A friend and I walked in an unlocked side door – no screening – past an officer and into reserved seating.”

Aside from the numerous followers of Windsor’s who replied to her post proving they, too, were unable to understand certain basic logical realities –

– that one point of entrance does not equate to only one point of exit, attorney Ken White who writes the Popehat Report offered up some snark for Windsor with a few insights of his own.

“Perhaps Ms. Windsor thinks the Secret Service would like to praise her moxie and seek her wise counsel on event security issues,” he posited. “Perhaps she thinks they’ll bring some appropriately congratulatory token, like a potted plant. Perhaps she thinks they just like journalists?”

In addition to suggesting that she was indeed “stupid enough to admit that she knew at the time she entered the restricted area she wasn’t authorized” to be in, he later noted the Secret Service may just be looking to scare her as punishment for her transgression.

Warning: Language

Of course, Windsor’s virtue was not to be tarnished by the supposition of any wrongdoing on her part and she made certain to express her not quite gracious receipt of White’s unsolicited advice.

“Maybe [White] should reach out and ask me before issuing condescending threads that speculate on my thinking,” she wrote before rather forcefully suggesting he mind his business. On that point, he offered her one last free suggestion.
