"The President had no freaking clue that the White House, Congress, etc. were being evacuated for an emergency yesterday," writes Oliver who excerpts a press briefing with Scott McClellan: "Q: Scott, yesterday the White House was on red alert, was evacuated. The First Lady and Nancy Reagan were taken to a secure location. The Vice President was evacuated from the grounds. The Capitol building was evacuated. The continuity of government plan was initiated. And yet, the President wasn't told of yesterday's events until after he finished his bike ride, about 36 minutes after the all-clear had been sent. Is he satisfied with the fact that he wasn't notified about this?" (Kryptonite To Stupid)
