Never change, D.C. 😂 This @DCPoliceDept  officer was caught driving around the National Mall blasting "Eye of the Tiger" for runners and bikers, because we could use any and all motivation we can get right now. (Courtesy: @Give_Em_Bell )

WATCH: D.C. cops blast "Eye of the Tiger" to encourage (socially distant) runners on the National Mall

I had an unexpected musical experience exercising on the National Mall this morning, courtesy of @DCPoliceDept  (not @NatlParkService , as I exclaimed.)

The @NatlParkService  has closed its parks around the DC region, per @wamu885 . Maryland, too. (I figured that out by direct experience this morning at the National Arboretum.) Shifting to solitary, distanced exercise on the Mall, then. Stay safe, all.

Photos of the Neo Nazi protest in Washington DC today... Members of the Patriot Front marched from the National Mall, past the Capitol, ending near Union Station. Patriot Front is run by Thomas Ryan Rousseau, who founded the group in 2017, as a teenager. @wusa9  @washingtonpost 

BREAKING: The Trump administration has backed down from plans to drastically limit protest near the White House and on the National Mall, after receiving thousands of public comments. If you come for our right to protest, you'll have to get through all of us.

STUNNING: Fireworks filled the sky above the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on Independence Day. ?

It appears most of the folks down on the National Mall won’t be able to get very close to the tanks and military vehicles down by the Lincoln Memorial. That area is behind a lot of fencing and security (accessible to VIP’s and other ticketed guests).

Hi @Ocasio2018  - I noticed you think Trump’s ‘Salute To America’ was “poorly attended.” I was there. It was a *massive* crowd on the National Mall. Tens of thousands. I witnessed thousands more being turned away. I photoshopped you into the event so you can see it for yourself ?

When I was a child, we saw pictures of military parades in the Soviet Union. We were told we don’t do that, that we’re proud of the fact that we don’t do that because we don’t wish to be a militarized society. Celebrating July 4 with army tanks on the National Mall is repugnant.

National Park Service spox says it “has issued a permit to Tighe Barry to hold a First Amendment demonstration on the National Mall on July 4 that includes the inflation of a ‘Baby Trump’ balloon.”

The Trump administration is proposing to dramatically limit spontaneous demonstrations, protests near the White House and National Mall, and open the door to charging fees for protests. We have until Monday to tell them what we think about it. Don't wait.

Spicer said this was the first time floor coverings were used on the national mall. I took this photo at the inauguration in 2013.
