Protesters took a knee in front of the White House on May 29, during a protest against the police-involved death of George Floyd.

The uploader captioned the video: “They have about 20 officers guarding White House and secret service are on top of the roof while protesters chant: Hands Up! Don’t shoot!’”

Local news reported the U.S. Secret Service ordered a lockdown of the White House due to the demonstration outside, with an estimate of 2,000 protesters.

    Who could have guessed that a reality tv star with no government experience, 6 bankruptcies, 5 kids from 3 different marriages, 11 charges of sexual assault, and 4000 plus lawsuits, could be so bad at being president? Trump is one who is against lots of things but doesn't seem to be for anything, offers bombastic and contradictory promises, is a terrifying Orwellian statesman, insults veterans, threatens a free press, mocks the handicapped, denigrates women, immigrants and Muslims. Trump avoided several chances to disavow David Duke, an advocate for white supremacy and former klan leader. Trump is a person who easily lies, who creates an environment where the truth doesn't seem to matter, who has never demonstrated any interest in anyone or anything but himself and his own enrichment. He is an infantile, bullying man, who depending on his mood is willing to discard old and established alliances, treaties and long-standing relationships, imagine all of this punctuated by his snarling narcissism. Trump's presidency is a political Ponzi scheme. Asking this man to responsibly assume the highest office in the land would be like asking Hitler to stop roasting Jews. The man is ill a demonstrated egocentric sociopath who needs to be psychologically evaluated treated, prosecuted, and jailed. Barr is in total consonance with Trump’s derangement in that he does not represent the people only the egocentric sociopath the Orange Sphincter.

    Its a good thing that this police officer was arrested for what he did,it was an bad thing to do.My prays go out to George Floyd's family.Some of the police officer think they can get away with many things and other officers who were should have told the bad cop to get off his neck,and should have reported him,for this,why they always pick on people of color I will never understand i come from a white family and I see nothing wrong with people of color thats how all 9 of my brothers and sisters were brought up. remember there are plenty of white people who are bad also. If any of you who have done this not so good of burning and trowing rocks should not have done there are other ways to get your message out to someone,please try to just march and protest but no damage and maybe the law will get the message,this is all do to the man who thinks he is god not a good president for us.He hates everyone,with all the Presidents we have had in my life I'm 79 now we have never had so much going on with all the country's and hire and fire people in the White House. So if all of you could just stop burning and stone throwing our Country would be a good place to live for our kids and grandkids. Thank for letting mr have freedman of speech.

    Exactly what is it that they want him to do? Launch a DOJ investigation? An FBI investigation? He's already done both. So what are they calling for?
