Today Secret Service Detained Man Who Jumped WH Fence… in a Pikachu Hat


Today the Secret Service apprehended someone who managed to climb the White House gate. The one thing that distinguishes this little near-breach: the man trying to climb up had Pokémon garb on him.

More specifically, he wore a Pikachu hat and held a Pikachu stuffed animal on him. (And in case any of you are unfamiliar with what a Pikachu is, look here. It may make you a lot more confused, by the way.)

Obviously, this was just the thing Twitter needed for some early evening WTFery:

…did he think the White House chained up Squirtle in the basement or something?
