The White House went dark, turning off almost all of its external lights, as protesters set fires nearby and thousands again defied curfews to demonstrate against police brutality. Smoke was seen rising near the Washington Monument.
JUST IN: Washington Monument closed until Jan. 24, National Parks Service says, citing "credible threats to visitors and park resources." "Groups involved in the Jan. 6, 2021 riots at the US Capitol continue to threaten to disrupt the 59th presidential inauguration on Jan. 20."
When I say this could become a model for future incumbents, I’m talking about both parties. You can’t beat the backdrop - and the Washington Monument fireworks blew away any balloon drop I have ever seen. Incumbency is a powerful bully pulpit. The genie is out of the bottle.
