F*CK-ING _LIE!!!...

NPR pulled the same stunt...

At A Breaking Point: Stretched Secret Service Says It Needs Help To Protect Trumps

Quote:
The U.S. Secret Service is bumping up against statutory limits on overtime pay, as it struggles to provide protection for President Trump and his globe-trotting family.
But if you READ the actual article, it shows the headline is a bunch of bullsh*t...


Quote:
Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex" Alles said the agency is once again working with lawmakers to ensure that staffers receive the overtime pay they're entitled to.

...Alles insists that's not the whole story, though.

"This issue is not one that can be attributed to the current administration's protection requirements alone," Alles said. He described the overtime crunch as an "ongoing issue for nearly a decade due to an overall increase in operational tempo."
So in an article where the Secret Service Director says that you can't pin this on one administration, the f*cking headlines intentionally pins it on one administration...

The USAToday article in the OP does pulls the same stunt...The headlines blame Trump directly, but the actual article says otherwise...

Quote:
A special investigative panel formed after a particularly egregious 2014 White House breach also found that that agents and uniform officers worked "an unsustainable number of hours,'' which also contributed to troubling attrition rates.

Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee who was the first lawmaker to sound the alarm after last year's disclosure that hundreds of agents had maxed out on pay, recently spoke with Alles and pledged support for a more permanent fix, Werner said.
Also, a special event this year contributes to the problem...

Quote:
Because of the sheer number of high-level dignitaries, the United Nations gathering is traditionally designated by the U.S., as a "National Special Security Event" and requires a massive deployment of security resources managed by the Secret Service.
