Oh wait, My bad. This was the White house Last night:

With protests all over the nation, over 100,000 Americans dead from a pandemic, over 40 million people unemployed, and this is what the White House.did - they turned the lights off.
It was also reported last night that the president took shelter in the White House bunker on Friday as crowds gathered outside of the White House that evening to protest police violence against the black community. Peaceful gatherings took a turn after dark as protesters clashed with law enforcement and lit fires near the building.

Rattled by the escalating tension outside the gates, the Secret Service briefly took Trump to the Presidential Emergency Operations Center, an underground bunker that is used to shelter presidents during threatening situations, on Friday for nearly an hour, according to The New York Times. The Associated Press reported that Trump and his family were shaken by the experience and the size of the protests. Although it’s unclear whether Melania and Barron Trump were also taken to the bunker, security protocol would have required them to be sheltered as well.

In the past, the bunker has been reserved for situations like terrorist attacks: former President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney had taken shelter in the bunker following the Al Qaeda attacks on September 11, 2001.


That's some it's-turned-up-to-eleven level symbolism. I am furious and sad at once. Please stay safe out there.
