Donald Trump Jr. Just Gave Up His Secret Service Protection, And People Have Questions

Donald Trump Jr. no longer wants Secret Service protection, sources confirmed on Monday. What hasn’t been confirmed is why.

The Secret Service would not confirm or deny the request by Trump Jr. A spokesperson merely said: 

“To ensure the safety and security of our protectees and their families we will not confirm who is currently receiving Secret Service protection.”

Jonathan Wackrow, a former member of President Barack Obama’s detail, expressed his concern at the decision:

“In today’s global risk environment, waiving this detail poses great danger to him and to his family. What he is becoming potentially is a target of opportunity. People who want to lash out at the president are going to seek that path of least resistance. This decision is negligent.” 

So, then, why did Don Jr. opt out of Secret Service protection?

Some pointed to the fact that both he and Kellyanne Conway announced they’d give up USSS protection on the same day… 

The same day it was revealed that Paul Manafort had been wiretapped no less…

Fox News speculated Don Jr.’s decision was about saving taxpayer money…

But Twitter wasn’t buying it…

While secret service protection for adult children of a president is automatically provided, they are legally allowed to turn down that protection, as Ron Reagan did during his father’s second term.

This Harry Potter Tattoo Can Only Be Seen If You Know The Magic Secret

There is an epic collection of Harry Potter tattoos in the world. The genre is like fan fiction that people permanently etch on their skin. Most are pretty beautiful, but still a lot to carry around with you forever. Like, Emma Watson is gorgeous, but do you want to be the canvas for her face?

Some of these tattoos are just simple and elegant nods to the popular series:

Some are…some are frightening. I’m just going to say that these scare me, though I fully support the right to do whatever you want with your bod:

Having seen the full gamut of what people can do, I didn’t expect to be surprised by anything new in the world of fan tattoos. Reddit user Littlefart (tee hee) has change that with this post:

If you can’t tell from the picture, the only way to read the sentence, “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good,” is by putting the tattoo under a blacklight. Then they magically glow. It’s really a Marauder’s Map with a secret code.

There is some back-and-forth argument in the comments about whether or not luminescent inks are safe for tattoos, but one commenter sums up my feelings about it:

Life is risk, baby! Get the goofy tattoo you want today, especially if you’re already up to no good. [h/t Someecards]
